The Unruly Remixes compilation has been a long time in the making – 20 years if you count Blunted Dummies’ seminal “House For All” as the starting point. Scottie B and Shawn Caesar launched Unruly Records in 1994, and the label came to define and ultimately dominate the genre of Baltimore Club music from the late 90s all the way up until present day. For the Unruly Remixes we grabbed four of the biggest, loudest, grimiest Baltimore Club hits and gave them to 16 of our favorite producers in virtually every genre of dance music. From Tittsworth’s dark techno, to DJ Sliink’s signature Jersey Club, to Sam Tiba & Myd (Club Cheval)’s space-age R&B, to Nadastrom’s vibey deep house, to LunyP’s tropical percussion jam, to Volta Bureau’s space disco, this is a collection of wildly creative and compelling electronic productions.

Named Best Club Music Producer in 2007 by the City Paper’s annual Best of Baltimore competition, DJ King Tutt has been on the up and up ever since. Constantly pushing the boundaries of club music, electro-house music, and a fusion of the two, Tutt strives to never let his talents become stale. A strong believer in quality of output, you can only expect the absolute best from his mixes and live performances.
If you’ve been into the Baltimore music scene for a while, you’ve at least gotta know Tutt for his tracks like “Shake My Ass”, “African Chant”, and “The Roof Is On Fire”. Tutt’s been producing tracks since I was twelve years old and playin’ kickball at recess. Okay, so I might be young, but he’s really been in the game so long that he’s become a respected Baltimore institution. After “Shake My Ass” gained the approval of Baltimore club king Scottie B, Tutt became his go-to guy for productions. Scottie B and Tutt quickly formed a dynamic duo and became an untouchable force as prominent DJs and producers for the events and releases of Unruly Records.
Tutt is all about testing his limits in the realm of music. To hear a perfect example of his house/club music hybrid, check out his Evolution EP, released in 2008. There are seven tracks on this EP, but two of them specifically stand out to me: “The Future” and “Black Democrat”. “The Future” touts this, well…, futuristic house music appeal while “Black Democrat” sounds like this epic, Baltimore club march. Juxtaposing these two totally different vibes onEvolution says a lot about Tutt’s confidence in his skills as a DJ and producer.
Last month, he released his latest electro-house mix, Say Hello to the Bad Guy. Nineteen tracks deep, Bad Guy quickly whisks you away to the sunniest of days with its upbeat melodies and steady grooves. One listen to this mix and you’ll quickly find yourself in the right mindset for your evening outing or just coolin’ out at the crib. Check my review of it here, but more importantly,download the mix and listen for yourself! Trust me, you might need the energy for your weekend jumpoff.
If you wanna hear more of Tutt’s house mixes, why don’t you go catch him live and in action this weekend? He’ll be playin’ some records at the Deep Sugarparty on Saturday at the Paradox in Baltimore. Dude’s mad busy so don’t sleep on this chance to see him play!
But, I wanted to get to know Tutt a little better so I hit him up with a few questions for Cool Breezy. I’m sharin’ the wealth! Here he talks about Say Hello to the Bad Guy, the state of music in Baltimore, and what it takes to be a good producer.
