KUTMAH “The New Error Vol. 2″ Sampler

Next week, our pal Justin “Kutmah” McNulty will be getting some well deserved love by our Southern California extended family, and I’m happy to be apart of this celebration. Last year, I reported on the deportation and organized a FREE KUTMAH: OBEY Radio event and got a chance to visit him in Manchester and London which lead me to plan this Los Angeles event with Brandy Flower of Hit + Run. Please join us on May 12th, 2011 at the HVW8 Gallery. More info below!


The Los Angeles exhibition of “Two Soups And A Honeybun” debuts May 12th at HVW8 Gallery in Hollywood brought to you by Hit+Run, Dublab, HVW8, & OBEY.  For KUTMAH’s hometown reception he has created “The New Error Vol. 2″, an exclusive 80-minute mix cd, as well as a limited OBEY Kutmah tee, a limited-edition screenprinted poster, and a 92-page art book of the entire “Two Soups And A Honeybun” collection, which will be available for sale (in limited quantities at the event).


Then there’s the afterparty at The Echo, brought to you by Dublab and Hit+Run, featuring Ras G, Jonwayne, Take, Superdeluxe, Alter, and Gaby Hernandez for the icing on top.


For those of you in London, there’s a launch party on May 11th for The New Error Vol. 2 at Rough Trade East in The Old Truman Brewery with live performances by Kutmah, Om-Unit, Tapes, Blue Daisy, Cherrystones, and Patchwork Pirates.


All in all, it seems like a hell of a week. Would love to see you here!

## official release ##

JUSTIN ‘KUTMAH’ MCNULTY was born in Brighton, England and moved to the United States when he was twelve years old.  KUTMAH grew up in Hollywood, California where he earned his reputation as a talented underground artist & DJ.  As an intrinsic member of the Los Angeles-based music collective dublab, KUTMAH launched his seminal club Sketchbook in 2004, which forged roots of the now-infamous L.A. beat scene.

On May 5th 2010 without any advanced warning and based on no criminal activity, armed U.S. Federal agents entered KUTMAH’s home and arrested him. Kutmah was incarcerated for two months under immigration charges. Sparking the FREE KUTMAH campaign, a collective of artists, friends and fans  rallied for the release of the well-respected artist. Theincredible global support behind the FREE KUTMAH campaign showed the power of his presence in modern art & music.  Upon KUTMAH’s release, he was immediately deported to the UK where he currently resides.

It was during his time spent locked-up that KUTMAH sought solace in art, drawing to keep sane with only a short pencil and his laminated ID card. The frustrated and emotional impact of his imprisonment and deportation have come to fruition with “Two Soups And A Honeybun”, the full collection of 37 drawings KUTMAH created in prison.  ”Two Soups And A Honeybun” debuted in London at 18 Hewett Street gallery on January 19th 2011. To celebrate the initial exhibition KUTMAH also launched “The New Error”, his exclusive three-volume mix cd series released with long-time collaborators Hit+Run.

The Los Angeles exhibition of “Two Soups And A Honeybun” debuts May 12th at HVW8 Gallery in Hollywood.  For KUTMAH’s hometown reception he has created “The New Error Vol. 2″, an exclusive 80-minute mix cd, as well as a limited-edition screenprinted poster, and 92-page art book of the entire ”Two Soups And A Honeybun” collection.  KUTMAH’s global art tour will culminate in Japan this summer with a special month-long showing in Tokyo, alongside record shop in-stores and an official opening night afterparty with djs and live performances.

Over the last year KUTMAH has toured Europe, djing shows with Saul Williams, The Gaslamp Killer, Flying Lotus, Gonjasufi, The Cinematic Orchestra, Dabrye and others.  KUTMAH also has forthcoming records out on Stones Throw, Brainfeeder, Poo-Bah & All City Records in 2011.
