Biography

Lee Potter, better known by his stage name Cut La Roc grew up in Brighton, United Kingdom and is signed to the British label Rocstar Recordings.

He started creating and producing music as teenager when House music's sub-genre Acid house came along at the end of the eighties. In an interview he described the cause of his "infection" for electronic music and DJ-ing: I'd never really liked house music up until then, but this was kind of different, because it had the hip-hop element through the breakbeats, it made total sense to me.[1]

In 1998 he produced the well known track "Post Punk Progression" which NME lauded as "What The Beatles would have sounded like if they'd invented jungle" Cut La Roc produced and released in 1999 a mix album for the Ministry Of Sound's FSUK imprint and set the bar high with a new world record for DJing with 9 deck and what made him to the scratch-mix specialist of the Skint gang who's even in the Guinness Book World Records for mixing with the most decks at once (9) ever. He spent three years consistently DJing in Australia, the United States, Europe and the Far East.

Thrilling scratch tricks and a unique DJ-ing technique remain Cut La Roc's speciality when he's playing out and his DJ sets combine the best of old and new Hip hop. He had appeared on Top Of The Pops as the late DJ Wildchild (musician) on the top ten hit Renegade Master'. Furthermore he produced with Alternative rock band Snow Patrol's frontman Gary Lightbody the tracks Fallen and Mishka. Cut La Roc held a 4 year residency at the famous Big Beat Boutique and performed alongside the artists Fat Boy Slim and Armand Van Helden. He performs shows all over the globe.

His currently released album is called Nemesis. There will follow in 2009/10 Nemesis Album Sampler 1 and Nemesis Album Sampler 2 (Rocstar Recordings).
