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

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 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.

THE ASTHMATIX

Taking to the stage with violin, keyboards and turntables, The Asthmatix have been blending the art of klezmer, hip hop, middle eastern melodies and turntablism since 2007. Band members include Micha ‘Morphingaz’ Walter on beats & cuts, Daniel ‘Weltmachine’ Weltlinger on violin, Daniel ‘Flying Wood’ Pliner on keys & melodica and occasionally Yossi ‘Asparagus’ Mlynsky on decks.

“The Asthmatix offer a delightfully zany take on instrumental hip-hop with their blend of jazz, sample-driven electronica and traditional Jewish music.” – Erin Felton (Deaf Ambitions)”

The Asthmatix have recently returned from the European summer where they traced their Baltic roots in Lithuania and Latvia, composed new sounds on keyboards and portable turntables purchased at Hamburg and Berlin flea markets and they recorded atmospheres from the Jerusalem shuk, the seas of Stockholm and the gypsy festivals of Germany.

The Asthmatix have nearly completed producing their first full length album and are currently planning an Australian tour in late April with a return visit to Europe this year for summer.
