Coldcut: What's That Noise?

Sean O'Hagan, New Musical Express, 8 April 1989

First grabbing the world's ears with their remix of Eric B And Rakims 'Paid In Full' the COLDCUT crew of Matt Black and Jonathan Moore went on to produce Yazz's 'Only Way Is Up' smash and are now cut-up kings of the sampling boom. SEAN O'HAGAN tracks through their debut LP to find out exactly what is that noise.
