Unite to help free KUTMAH!!!!

Los Angeles – LA Based DJ / Producer, Kutmah was born in the UK to an Egyptian mother and Scottish father. He moved to the US with his mother when he was 12 years old. They immediately applied for residency to keep them from being sent to Egypt. As a British citizen the court ruled that he would be able to live in the UK which in their eyes wasn’t such a bad place. They denied their application.

Kutmah and his Mom returned to court to plead their case 14 years ago when Kutmah was 20. They were again denied a green card and were urged to sign a document stating they would voluntary leave the US.

On Wednesday morning, May 5th armed agents entered Kutmah’s house and detained him. He was brought to a facility in downtown LA where he was interrogated. On Thursday he was moved to New Mexico. We need to show how important Kutmah is to the LA and US community. Please write a letter and spread the word!

Original Sin

Original Sin is the new production alias of Adam Tindall (one half of the now defunct Generation Dub/G Dub/Double Zero). Original Sin’s “Don’t Be Silly”, “D for Danger” and “Ra! (Original Sin Remix)” have helped him establish his individual production style. Two songs have been released under Adam’s second alias (Killa Hurt) on Frontline Records. In late 2009, Original sin released his first album ‘Grow Your Wings’ which was critically acclaimed by the likes of Grooverider and DJ Hype. In 2009 Original Sin was awarded Best New Artist in DNB awards… Thanks to these many acheivements. Original Sin has now become one of the leading names in the drum and bass scene.

DJ Maniak

Now he’s teamed up with his girl, DJ Maniak, who’s been rocking the Canadian seen for many years and now on the up and up with her production and DJ skills…”

If you haven’t already, you need to go out and get those pre-sales HERE and we’ll see everyone out there!
