I first met Darren and Tunde of Future Cut when they were producing The Un-calculated Sum album as Un-cut. I put strings on half a dozen tracks for that album and still use them for my showreel. They were into strings doing emotional and left-field stuff so it was a joy to work on. It’s a great album which never got the attention it deserved. They come from a production/DJ background which makes them more open to a multitude of musical influences than many musicians.
After Un-cut folded they moved their studio to London and have been producing non-stop as far as I can tell, coming back to me for arrangements for Connor Reeves, Kate Nash and now Plan B.
