The Conservatorium van Amsterdam Pop Department Presents:
ADE Open House Sessions with Sebastiaan Dutilh
Breaking down a song to it's core and explaining the artistic process by homemade hero Sebastiaan Dutilh (CUT_). Step into the world of Logic and synthesis and hear the mysteries unfold. It's interactive and free entrance to everyone.
Electronic duo CUT_ took off rapidly after their rendition of Stromae’s ‘Papaoutai’ went viral. CUT_ has since then played numerous shows, including performances at Lowlands, PITCH, ADE, Eurosonic and various appearances on Dutch national television. CUT_ released their first single on [PIAS] “Tune In Tune Out” (mixed and co-produced by Leo Abrahams), which was released late last year, followed by "Undertow" & "Electrify" through 2017.
“We feel our music is a crossover between dark alternative electronics and edgy pop music. Trying to combine our love for the two, we’ve been very inspired by a new style of songwriting that’s been greatly evolving the last few years. Acts such as Flume, Aluna George and Jamie xx paved a fresh way for us. One that we’re happy to walk.” (Belle Doron: vocals & songwriting)
Focusing on encompassing the full spectrum of artistry, CUT_ have made video and visuals an important part of their image, as well as trying to excel in their live shows. “We find that live shows are a way to really distinguish yourself as an artist nowadays, especially when, like in our case, the music is focused on electronic production. We make a point of doing everything live.” (Sebastiaan Dutilh: production & songwriting)
CUT_ toured the Netherlands, Germany and the UK late 2016 & early 2017 + shows at ADE 2016, Eurosonic 2017, TGE17 & C/O Pop. CUT_ opened for Years & Years, AIR, The Ting Tings, Oscar & The Wolf, Christine & The Queens and Lamb.
