Cut Chemist biography (bio):
Cut Chemist is the performing name of Lucas MacFadden, a solo turntablist. He is a former member of the funk Latin band Ozomatli, and of hip hop group Jurassic 5.
McFadden became known through the Los Angeles-based rap group Unity Committee, and debuted on vinyl on the B-side of Unity Committee's 1993 single, "Unified Rebelution". The track, "Lesson 4: The Radio" was an ovation of Double Dee and Steinski's "Lessons 1-3."
Preceding the vinyl release, Unity Committee formed Jurassic 5, along with another group, Rebels of Rhythm. McFadden contributed avidly to the group, adding "Lesson 6: The Lecture" to Jurassic 5's eponymous EP, and co-producing the entirety of the record. Between then and other releases, he explored remixing along side DJ Shadow and Liquid Liquid, and performed doing outside work (sampling and scratching for Less Than Jake, and appearing with Ozomatli). From late 1996 to early 1997, Cut Chemist recorded his album debut, Live at Future Primitive Sound Session, with Shortkut of Invisibl Skratch Piklz.
According to the official Jurassic 5 website, McFadden did not appear on their most recent album Feedback. In May of 2006, he indicated to Billboard magazine that he has left the group.
McFadden's first full-length solo album, The Audience's Listening, was released on July 11, 2006. The album includes the pre-released song "The Garden", which features a bossa nova style, vocals from Astrud Gilberto's Brazilian song "Berimbau", and berimbau instrumentals.
The song "The Audience Is Listening Theme Song" from The Audience's Listening has recently been featured in a 2G Apple iPod nano advertisement.
More recently, McFadden has opened for Shakira in 2007 on the European leg of her Oral Fixation Tour, and at the press conference held by car-maker SEAT to promote their sponsorship of the shows. Cut Chemist has also produced the track 'Radio Friendly' for Canadian rapper Abdominal's solo album.
