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!

Music video for Take’s “Incredibright” from the album Only Mountain

Since TAKE just had his album release party yesterday for his new album ” Only Mountain ” @ Low End Theory in LA and the day before rocking a really dope set live on the Brainfeeder radio special 4/20 show.. It only seems fit to put up one of his videos from the new album.

Take “Incredibright” from Alpha Pup on Vimeo.

Find more info out about TAKE and Cop the album now @ Alpha Pup

Here is the album description from their site:

“Alpha Pup is proud to present Only Mountain, the newest release from L.A.-based beat producer Take. His most powerful and fully realized work to date, Only Mountain serves as a complete affirmation of Take’s ten prolific years in music production. Although prominently featured on seminal releases such as From L.A. With Love and this year’s All City 10-inch, Take is poised to make the greatest impact of his career with his newest sonic creation.

From Only Mountain’s opening salvo, “Before You Think,” it is clear that Take has claimed his rightful place amongst the beat scene’s leading luminaries. A dusty off-kilter space stomp, the track lays the ground work for an album’s worth of hazy electronic textures and intergalactic breakbeats. Case in point: “Incredibright,” a no-holds-barred haymaker of astro-hop swagger. On “Implosions,” one of the albums more introspective tracks, Take drags us through a spaced out journey of low-end stabs and bit-crushed melodies.

A dense and groundbreaking work, Take’s “Only Mountain” stands as a staggering collection of gorgeously brilliant melodies and deep subharmonic bass. Truly future music towards a brighter end.”
