SummaryBack for the second time, the next installment of Induce's "Cuticle Scrapes" stays new in the age of digital DJ's. After the great success of the first volume on which he introduced the world to the idea of including 2 copies of a record for the price of one, Induce took a step back to reanalyze the current situation. And the answer was to simplify and update, while still looking fresh to death with a metallic gold cover, the digital DJ's equivalent to the trademark "Cuticle Scrapes" second copy is now the free CD of "Cuticle Scrapes Version.2" included with the vinyl. Staying simple, Induce includes what seems to be a normal 7 beats to cut to, 2 scratch sentences, a drum sentence, and a sine wave bass octave. Although, with further inspection, you can notice a certain string holding many of the tracks together, holding in high regard those who came before, while keeping it moving with new and fresh sounds and beats.
And while to many, Induce may have been keeping a low profile since the release of his debut album, "Cycle", on his own WonderSound label, the opposite would be more accurate. Aside from becoming one of the most sought after DJ's in Miami's indy scene, and being able to go from classic Hip Hop to the latest indy-disco-electro-pop-whatever, Induce has also slowly but steadily built his reputation for his own productions. Following the "Cycle" release on CD, Induce went on to release a vinyl EP of "Cycle", exclusive to Japan. He then was featured on a compilation called "Calderas of Mind", was asked to remix Mr. Cooper for his "Amongst Strangers" 12", and from there, Induce went on to release an EP of New York production duo known as Illfonics. Most recently Induce's "Coltrane's Brain" from his "Cycle" album was featured on a Japanese compilation titled "StreetNoise 2: Home Alone, Enjoy The Mellow Note," compiled by Calm.
