The Chop is an evening dedicated to show casing the talents of local Sydney beat makers & producers…

The Chop is a brand new night to be held on a monthly to bi-monthly basis at Play bar, which is located in Sydney’s design, music and fashion hub, Surry Hills.

The Chop is an evening dedicated to show casing the talents of up and coming, as well as already established beat makers & producers. The call has been sent out to all bedroom bangers, mpc masters, beat junkies and production prodigies, to bring their finest cuts of A grade beat making and they have answered with cleavers in tow.

All performances will be live and butchered to order for your audio taste buds.

Along with show casing these talented artists, The Chop will be supported by some of Sydney’s finest DJ’s. They will spinning the most mouth watering assortment of funk, soul, boogie and hip hop to accompany these talented purveyors of cold cuts and dope beats.

Play bar is an underground urban speak easy in Surry Hills frequented by everyone from corporate city slickers looking for a street style getaway to the cool kids of inner Sydney, which makes it the perfect venue for The Chop.

This is a free event designed to promote the little known beat scene in Sydney and it is well worth stepping into this musical meat market to see the range of produce.

Falling off the bone this December…

In a landscape weary with big room anthems, we bring back the instrumental.
Down tempo at its finest,
Let the music talk…
