Melbourne-based producer/deejay Kut One teams with longtime collaborator King Magnetic for the boisterous and booming Which One’s First?, which serves as the lead single off Kut’s upcoming compilation LP, Live Wires.
The track perfectly demonstrates exactly what listeners can expect when they hear the full project in March, because both the producer and his guest deliver with reckless abandon. For King Mag’s part, the Allentown representative brings some of his most aggressive, braggadocios bars as he asks his enemies to decide what they want first—bad news or bullets?
Of course, the emcee’s murderous rhymes wouldn’t be quite as potent without the right backdrop, and Kut brings the heat in this respect like only he can. The instrumental is layered masterfully with chilling piano stabs, haunting vocal loops, and drums that will knock the dust off your speakers. It’s basically everything you’d want from Kut and King Mag, especially after they sounded so great together on last year’s collaborative EP, David & Goliath: Slingshots, with GQ Nothin Pretty.
