Reliably informed

Clocking in at six-and-a-half minutes, the trance and techno influences on this latest release from North Shields’ very own electronica maestro Chop5 are plain for all to hear. Continually layering looped phrases – from laser-gun stomping beats and intricate drumlines to distorted vocal lines which seem to resemble a dog’s twisted metamorphosis into a cat – much of which may send you whirl winding back to late-’80s acid house.

Ever-industrious Chop5 has had a busy year, with numerous releases gaining airtime on local radio stations, including BBC Introducing North East. But on their way are a series of singles, beginning with Bug Stomper – which, for those wondering, is a film reference, not an incitement of violence against our hexapodal friends, says the keen environmentalist.
