UnderKut


Read the UnderKut Interview below and share it on social media.


Please tell our readers who you are and what you do?


Hi my names Matt Fajardo also known as Underkut. I'm also the owner of Open Format and O.F. Records. We're known for modifying portable turntables and supplying parts to the Turntablist community. I own a Tech Shop at the Beatjunkie Institute of Sound in Glendale, CA were we do repairs on pro audio gear, turntables, mixers etc. Its just my side hustle. But we also run a label were we produce beats and press records for people to use to either scratch or jam out to. We also dabble with video and cinematography for the Turntablist and Beat-making community. Check the links below to get a feel of what we do.

How would you describe your influences and how have they changed over the years?


This past 2 years had been crazy for me. I've never thought I would ever meet or do work with the artist I've always looked up to when I was younger. Now some of these artist are considered my co-workers. The entire Beatjunkie crew has been opening up doors for me and introducing me to the music industry. The Beatjunkie Institute of sound is where I hold most of my meetings. I met a ton of artist from DJ Premier to DJ Atrak and almost every other big name DJ or Producer in the music industry. Lately I been listening to alot of LA based producers like Zikomo, Orijanus, Carmack, Esta, Madbliss and the list goes on. I'm always looking for beats to scratch to. If you guys ever want to have a scratch session with the crew hit me up. We not only offer lessons at the Beatjunkie Institute but we have open scratch sessions every Friday night at the school. Hit me up!


What´s new right now?


Right now I've been focusing on building a new studio so we could knock out more music. I figure its better to create and be more productive being outside of the house. But been really swamped with working on mods at my OF Tech Shop at the Beatjunkie Institute of Sound.
