Kutmah (pronounced: KOOT-MAH) was born and raised in Brighton, England. His art career began at a very young age, rendering nude women from a 70's sex reproduction book he stole at the school library. At age 12, he moved to Hollywood, California and continued drawing women, but mostly the prostitutes he would see from his apartment window.
Kûtmah is the founder of Sketch Book. Sketch Book was the club that nurtured into being Flying Lotus, Ras G, Gaslamp Killer. It was an oasis every Tuesday night for heads of the “made this at the crib earlier, lets play it variety”. Kûtmah was always there with a new crazy blend and a sketch you wouldn’t believe. His graphic arts skills are legendary, he is mean on the wheels and with a pen.
For the last couple of years, he's been selling large scale nude wood burns and has done a couple album covers including his own 10" record "Warm Like The Sunshine" filled with desert sounds and dirty beats. If in Los Angeles, please keep your ears open for his DJ sets, he's known to play the dirtiest beats in town.
From Cities To Mountaintops - 2006
A soft sifted grime, Kutmah’s Dusted Soul emits heavy and high seductive vibrations. Melting the internal sound system on slow drifting melodies. Kutmah is the founder of Sketch Book, a weekly Tuesday night Oasis for LA heads that nurtured the “made this at the crib earlier, lets play it variety.” His graphic arts skills are legendary as is his taste. This one’s a sketch for you mind!
One of the best DJs we've even seen, he drops his new mix for LA's Hit & Run crew (not to be confused with the local night of the same name). Featuring tracks from Flying Lotus, Bullion, Illum Sphere, Dabrye, Samiyam, Dibiase, as well as the Silver Apples, Aphex Twin and Zackey Force, put together in a way only Kutmah can, this mix comes marked as ESSENTIAL.
