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.

Fine Beats: Live sets by Cooking with Caustic & Waza
COOKIING WITH CAUSTIC
The Blue Mountains have produced an impressive array of musical talent over the years, and 2014 is set to be a great year for 10 piece collective Cooking with Caustic. With a fresh and dynamic take on soul, funk and hip hop, the band blends intricate, mood-driven instrumentals alongside tracks which showcase a variety of guest vocalists and MCs.
Their upcoming album features an outstanding collection of guest vocalists; including respected Sydney hip hop artists P.smurf, Mikoen and Mute MC from Daily Meds and Reverse Polarities, Madame Wu, Tenth Dan, Loose Wayne and Broken Thought Theory. Evan Jones from soul duo Jones Jnr makes an appearance, along with the smoky jazz tones of Charlotte Craib. At the heart of the band’s vocal line up lie the diverse and soulful voices of Queen B and Blackjack Davey.
The band recently released the first single from their album ‘Natural Selection’, along with an extraordinary Godzilla-esque stop-motion film clip made by photographer Pat Bowden.
Cooking with Caustic have produced music for Thundamentals, Tuka, Madame Wu and Two Toes. They have also had two tracks chosen to appear on Sydney’s iconic Free the Beats series, and have done remixes for Daily Meds, Thundamentals and NZ band Sola Rosa.
Armed with a sick sense of beatmaking and a soft-focus throwback vibe, Sydney’s Waza has distilled starry-eyed nostalgia with hip hop sensibility in his new mixtape, Love is a Battlefield.
