The Chop is an evening dedicated to show casing the talents of local Sydney beat makers & producers…
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.
Falling off the bone on Saturday the 29th of November 2014…

Ex member of Blades Of Hades which gave start to artists, Jane Tyrell from the Herd, DJ Skoob (3 time NSW DMC champ, and DJ for The Tongue)and of course Blades as they are known now. I’ve been producing Hip Hop, Dubstep and Drum and Bass, collectively, for 15 years, working with emcees and singers across the globe. Finally, I’ve made the time to focus on a release which features many, many emcees, DJs and singers from Australia, the UK and the US. The album will be a vinyl only release, but I have made a couple of previews available here for unearthed listeners. Cheers, Scotty B (aka The Digital Assassin)
