Rapper M.I. and DJ/Producer DJ Cutt make up the group Constant Deviants. After years of failed indie and major record deals the duo started their own record label, SIX2SIX Records in 2009. The result is a full-length album titled DIAMOND.
DIAMOND is an album reminiscent of 90’s era Hip-Hop. Cutt’s production coupled with Mr. Impossible rhymes blend together like Guru and Premier. Constant Deviants brings a refreshing dose of authenticity to today’s Hip-Hop landscape.
M.I. of Constant Deviants spoke to The Real Hip-Hop.com about the group’s SIX2SIX record label, the most valuable lesson they’ve learned in their recording career, and their new album DIAMOND.
TRHH: Why’d you title the new album DIAMOND?
M.I.: There are two different reasons for the Diamond title. Diamond represents ten million sold. It has been ten years since me and Cutt had done music together as Constant Deviants. That was the initial reason and ultimately it just grew. The diamond is more representative of the preciousness and rarity of the stone. It’s the hardest natural substance. It’s a precious stone that’s not as pretty as it is once it’s cleaned up. So it kind of represents the type of music we do and it’s a lost art to make good Hip-Hop and not sound like music from the 90’s but still have that feel to it.
TRHH: Why was there such a big gap between the times you two recorded together?

Debonair P - "the wax was mastered with DMM (Direct Metal Mastering) instead of the usual lacquer mastering that most plants use - so the basslines sound extra fat."
Recorded with DMM ® The process of Direct Metal Mastering (hard surface material) over acetate lacquer cutting (soft surface material) are both sonic and practical: because of the rigidity of the master disc medium, no groove wall bounce-back effects take place after the cutting has been completed. This preserves the original modulation details in the groove walls much better, especially those involved with sudden fast attacks (transients). The improved transient response, as well as the more linear phase response of DMM improve the overall stability and depth-of-field in the stereo image. In addition, disturbing adjacent groove print-through sounds (groove echoes) are reduced in DMM. Also, there is no need to rush the finalized master disc directly into a refrigerator for groove preservation, as in conventional lacquer disc cutting, before processing the master disc to produce matrices for the pressing of the records.
