LP version. Songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, producer, orchestra leader, digital mixologist, filmmaker, "psychedelic funk architect" Kutiman is perhaps best known for his innovative YouTube mash-up project ThruYOU. He also received an honorable mention in Time's 50 Best Inventions of 2009, performed at YouTube's launch exhibition at the Guggenheim Museum in New York City, and has travelled to Krakow, Jerusalem, Tokyo, Riga, and New York to create original audio/visual montages of each city's atmosphere. The second release off Kutiman's own label will be kicked off with his much-anticipated sophomore album 6am. 6am really does prove Kutiman has no musical boundaries; it is an album filled with psychedelic rock n' roll roots, dips into deep funk/soul grooves and even adds underlying influences from Africa and the Middle East. 6am stands as Kutiman's most song-oriented outing to date, with strong melodies and unforgettable hooks accompanied by lush and rich orchestral sounds. The album's first single "Shine Again" starts with a signature Kutiman orchestra bit that leads into a strong and fuzzy rock n' roll lick, spiraling into a Middle Eastern tinges with powerful vocals carefully layered across the top of the catchy hook. "Shine Again" displays Kutiman's influences, and his ability to seamlessly merge them into what is sure to be a classic.
