THE STORY OF DJ CDP
DJ CDP alias DJ CUTDAPULT is a 26 year old producer and turntablist from Germany, Eberswalde. He uses synthesizers, drum machines, sampler, vocoder, talkbox, turntables and many more to create his music.
HOW EVERYTHING BEGAN..
Since he can remember he was surrounded by music. Born and grown up in a small town at the Oder-river, Frankfurt, he started to investigate vinyl collection including the classics like Al Jarreau, Stevie Wonder, The Police, The Electric Light Orchestra and also GDR classics like City, Karussell, Holger Biege and Lift at the early years already. DJ CDP also got influenced by classical music, especially every Sunday when the family came together, sang songs and played the guitar.
At the age of 10 he started break-dancing in a local crew. At his 13 years DJ CDP tried his hand at MCing, songwriting and also beatboxing in his free time.
One day after school, he spent the afternoon with a friend manipulating the old turntable of their parents. But right after some minutes of fun they broke the needle. The fascination of turntablism was born.
At the age of sixteen DJ CDP got some real turntables, a mixer and the record collection of his parents and started to scratch every single day after school. Later on he met Kanimann, who was a scratch-beginner as well. They became friends and started to show their skills on some local festivals.
At the age of 18 DJ CDP left his hometown to work in the metropolis Cologne of western Germany. Firstly he worked as a graphic designer, later on he served his apprenticeship as a plasterer. During all these years he kept on working on perfecting his scratch skills and made his first beats and scratchtracks.
In 2011 he left Cologne to come back home to Eberswalde. After more than 10 years of scratching he felt, it was time to concentrate his work on making beats and tracks. So he became a producer and built up his own homestudio. He dedicated himself to sound synthesis, mixing and mastering, the talkbox, fingerdrumming and more. In 2012 he released his first funk orientated album called "Funk Part One" which he sold on the streets and a local store called Trauma Records. Now he is constantly working on his projects & tries to challenge himself always, combining all his influences including different types of music: hip hop, electro funk, synth funk, funk, jazz, soul, turntablism, electronica to make your heads bounce, let your mind travel, discover a world full of light and darkness.
