Psych, funk, jazz and rock covers of Pete Rock??™s Greatest Tracks from MF DOOM??™s go-to instrumentalist
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.
