Mr. Chop – “T.R.O.Y.”

Mr. Chop is a producer, engineer and multi-instrumentalist behind several Now-Again and Jazzman Records releases.  Recent work as a co-producer & co-writer on a series of tracks on Born Like This from MF DOOM (who called him “the illest to grace the boards”) led to a chance to rework psych funk, jazz and rock covers of producer Pete Rock’s greatest beats, resulting in For Pete’s Sake.

His is a unique take that has led to an album that the heads will recognize by, say, the Tom Scott sax-line Pete Rock poached for “T.R.O.Y.,” or a host of other sample-based calls and response that Chop has deconstructed and reassembled again.  These tracks were recorded at his Cheshire, England-based Ape Studios with the likes of The Heliocentric’s Malcolm Catto, Jake Ferguson and Mike Burnham, offering up a futuristic mixture of fuzzy psychedelia, funk and jazz, informed by years of record collecting and hip hop studies.

Worldwide release date for For Pete’s Sake is November 3rd.
