For this month’s ChicagoVerseUniteD cover story, every day in January will preview 2012 plans for a Chicago talent or tastemaker. Today: Supreme Cuts!
In March 2011, Austin Keultjes and Mike Perry released the first song under the banner of their new group, then a production project, the haunting and ambient electronic soul-infused Supreme Cuts. The project isn’t the first time the two have collaborated together, with both having headed up Chicago dream-pop outfit Dirty Diamonds. In August, Supreme Cuts released its debut EP, Trouble, on Smasll Plate Records. And now, as Keultjes reveals, the act is looking towards a proper album.
“Around march of 2012 supreme cuts will release our first full length record, Whispers In The Dark, on Dovecote Records,” Keultjes reveals to CVU. “After that we are working with a slew of rappers on various projects but can’t say much more about that.”
“The music coming out this year will sound like the epic soundtrack for a world altering paradigm shift/good makeout music,” Keultjes adds.
Check out the Supreme Cuts Soundcloud set below, followed by the group’s videos for the tracks “Trouble” and “Fools.”
