Israeli YouTube mash-up video artist Kutiman's soon-to-be-released album ThruYOU Too gives a new meaning to funk and soul. The album consists of six new songs, each re-imagined and re-born from a compilation of amateur Youtubers' original clips. The soulful, mellow tone of recently-gone-viral, “Give it Up”, will have your foot tapping as you watch a six-year-old pianist and a high school brass ensemble make their own music along with other component clips seamlessly threaded together. The result is a memorable song that combines all elements of R&B, gospel and groove and although none of the individual performances are by Tel Aviv-based Kutiman himself, his genius is apparent from the moment you press play.
Thru You Too will be released October 1.
