Ex-Jurassic 5/Ozomatli DJ Cut Chemist threw his dexterous self into the perilous arena of solo production, and killed it with 2006's The Audience's Listening
. Turns out CC's a serious sonic chameleon, as he often transcends his hiphop/turntablist roots and expands into diverse, unpredictable territory
(Kraut rock, bossa nova, psych rock) and righteously predictable styles (smart indie rap, quirky space funk). Still, I wouldn't bitch if Cut simply played vintage funk 45s all night from his awesome stash.
