Supreme Cuts

Chicago-natives Supreme Cuts’ Mike Perry and Austin Kjeultes continue to cultivate their own specific post-R&B sound; their 2012 EP Trouble, released under Small Plates Records, took from dubstep and bass music with a heavy percussion influence, drawing upon R&B and their hometown's sonic influences. Since their first full-length album Whispers in the Dark released under Dovecote Records this summer, the duo has gone on to make a name for themselves with the collaborative Chrome Lips LP, with rapper Haleek Maul, and stand-out mixes for The Fader - released in July – and, more recently, Dazed & Confused.

Supreme Cuts’ SSENSE mix opens with the subtle, ethereal offering Trouble, taken from their acclaimed debut EP, that slowly builds into their signature eerie sound with textural layers of winding instrumentals and barely-there drum samples, before unfolding into fragmented R&B vocals courtesy of Issue’s Trail of Tears. True to form, the mix changes pace, energized with heavier basslines and the drop of Physical Therapy's remix of their own Val Venus single, and littered with intricate percussion and syrupy piano riffs – a nod to their Chicago roots courtesy of Juke legend Traxman.
