Raised in Milwaukee, WI, but currently living in Los Angeles, Ca, Kid Cut Up has been honing his unique, dance-floor-packing style at over 300 events a year for the past decade. Arguably his hometown’s best-known and most well respected DJ, Cut Up has developed a loyal following and helped many of Milwaukee’s most popular clubs get their jump. Cut Up’s dedication to his craft has culminated in a personal style that encompasses exclusive cross-genre remixes, turntablist skills and crowd interaction. His success in the Midwest continues to serve him well after his move to LA in 2011.
Laying claim to up to 5 weekly residencies at any given time, Kid Cut Up never sleeps. Traveling extensively, he has performed at notable venues such as Eden (LA), Winstons (LA), The Dime (LA), duckduck (NY), Evil Olive (CHI), Subterranean (CHI), Lava (CHI), Funky Buddha Lounge (CHI), First Avenue (MN), Honey (MN), DinkyTowner (MN), Turner Hall (MKE), the Pabst Theatre (MKE) and the Majestic (MAD). He has performed at festivals such as Summerfest, Scribble Jam and has appeared at all four meetings of Soundset, to name just a few. In that time he has performed with Z-Trip, N.E.R.D., Kid Cudi, Wiz Khalifa, Atmosphere, Pitbull and many others.
Known for his “Club Soda” series of mixtapes, Kid Cut Up developed the official promotional mix for Common’s album “Universal Mind Control,” and authored the official Scribble Jam Festival Mix for 2008. A recovering workaholic, he also burns daylight creating original remixes which he uses to elevate his live performances; his release, “Super Mix,” is comprised almost exclusively of proprietary remixes and unprecedented blends. The fruit of this labor has been featured in a variety of outlets, including, most notably, Kanye West’s blog “Univercity,” as well as websites like datpiff.com, 2dopeboyz.com and onSmash.com.
Kid Cut Up has also had regular radio gigs co-creating the Madkids show on 91.7 WMSE (MKE) and is an active member of the Vocalo Collective on 89.5 WBEZ (CHI). As Kid Cut Up has begun to establish himself in the LA area with an ever expanding buzz he also continues to play throughout the Midwest, hitting the road on a monthly basis to rock parties nationwide.
