Members: Steven Tutt
Style: Baltimore Club
Influenced by: Scottie B., Sean Caesar, Rod Lee, Kanye West, Timbaland
Notable: Tutt helped put out two EPs this year - The Evolution and Money Lotion Volume 5: At the Controls Pt. 2 (for Scottie B and The Chavy Boys of London). Before Internet music downloading programs such as iTunes came along, it was hard for audiences abroad to get Baltimore Club CDs. Now, audiences around the globe can easily get their hands on a club track, he said.
Quotable : "I'm getting e-mails from people in Scotland and all kinds of places overseas," Tutt said. "It's not just Baltimore now - it's definitely worldwide. I love it. We've been on this music and we've been doing it for so long and it's finally starting to pick up in other places."
