Cut Chemist – “Outro (Revisited)” ft. Blackbird


Love us some Cut Chemist. “Outro (Revisited)” comes after the chemist was released from jail and reflected on his “strong urge to run.” The adrenaline pumping track instantly grabs you with an addictive guitar riff and an exceptional vocal delivery from LA based rapper (and our pal) Blackbird. Basically, this song rules life.

Our plan? Playing it over and over and waving our hair around in a fury like we’re in the baddest rock band of all time. You can join us by streaming the track on

The track is the first single from Die Cut (A Stable Sound).

Gilles Peterson’s Worldwide Festival Wraps in Sète


This past Sunday, Gilles Peterson finished off his crazy amazing 2011 Worldwide Festival in Sète, France with some very happy fans.

Giant Step fan, Riki Drori wrote us some words while at the festival: “Greetings from the best kept secret in the world of music – the Worldwide Festival in Sète at the South of France. Kudos to Gilles Peterson for making it happen again! And thanks to Giant Step for always bringing us the best, most updated music. This is our second year at the Worldwide Festival and it is really a dilemma to write about it online; On one hand you want to give credit to Gilles and his team for making one of the best music festivals, and on the other hand, you want to keep it a secret – because one of the coolest things about this festival is the people that come to it.”

Check out some photos from this year’s festivities on Flickr.

The caliber of talent was a little out of control: Raphael Saadiq, Flying Lotus, Jamie xx, Mount Kimbie, Cut Chemist, Lefto, Simbad, Benji B, Dam Funk, Quantic, Owiny Sigoma Band, and James Blake.

We are anxiously awaiting next year. Yes, already.
