First released as a beat-tape back in 2011, Kutmah’s Closure at last gets the vinyl pressing that its low-slung, dubbed-out hip-hop instrumentals deserve. The tracks were made between 2004 and 2011, so we can truly trace the history of Kutmah with this release. Nine tracks and 10” of red vinyl, served in a screenprinted sleeve on Hit+Run.

Straight from LA we have Kutmah’s first beat tape from way back in the glory days of 2011, now made it to Vinyl thanks to Hit+Run, whose screenprinting has now reached legendary levels. The cover depicts one of his federal detainment dreams - the poor dude was called up by their draconian immigration centre despite philanthropic testament.
Whatever the case, these beats are mostly nice and chilled, painting Kutmah as a pacifist more than anything. No idea if you can judge a person by their music, but Varg Vikernes is a convincing case. Many samples combine to form vaguely Prefuse 73 / DJ Shadow rhythms and tones, all in the customary little snippets, just enough to betray the feel. They’re nothing spectacular, but you can be rewarded by listening into the finer subtle detail - it’s all about restraint. Those who like their hip-hop rap free will chill to this.
