Zarecord 2 – 7″ by Cut & Paste Records!
With the portable scratch scene having become a global phenomenon, Russia’s NMCP Studio have spearheaded the movement’s core values with their steady stream of innovations, philosophies and modifications.
The first Zarecord 7” from the Tver-based crew was packed full of raw vocal hooks and supremely scratchable noises, and has been re-pressed multiple times, finding it’s way to all corners of the planet. NMCP’s Quantum Fader is regarded as the most solidly built and best-feeling plug-in faders for portable skratchers. Their underground status as a lathe-cutting powerhouse behind numerous labels’ small-batch record releases puts them in a unique position, having technical prowess combined with street knowledge.
Now Cut & Paste Records are extremely excited to be releasing the 7” version of Zarecord 2. Working from the same sample collection used on it’s 12” counterpart, this version has been carefully re-arranged to work best on portable turntables: the skipless format of 99bpm loops was chosen for it’s simple visual form, while the sentences themselves have been programmed for ease-of-use in the unpredictable conditions that come with the territory of portablism.
