Dance up with BELLA CUTS ‘summer podcast for Wrangelkiez!
You will probably recall her sound under the name Cut Loose who kept the temperature high and your feet up in the underground soliparties and hot locations such as Chesters, Südblock or Schwuz. Bella Cuts hit Berlin with her footwork booty bass style in 2012 teaming up with the local artists Joey Hansom (Expatriarch) and Mika Risiko (Crime).
Formally from New Zealand, her carrer started after an intensive dig into bass nightclubs and photography documention in Aotearoa. Inspired by the world-class DJs she snapped each week, she stepped behind the decks and went on to perform up and down the country, from Wellington nightclub institution Sandwiches to legendary indie music festival Camp a Low Hum.
After a rigorous training in turntablism with DMC champions Raw and Alphabethead, she packed her record bag and headed North. Diving into a D.I.Y. European tour, Ms. Cuts brought her collection of queen diva selections to dive bars, squat parties and festivals in 9 countries, from Bristol to Barcelona, Copenhagen to the Czech Republic.
Shows in New Zealand and the UK took her away for most of the 2014 summer, but now Bella Cuts is back: busy writing beats, recording mixes and preparing a very special set for the SO36 36th birthday Gala with her signature fierce femme big beats and booty bass.
