This man is playing everywhere, all the time.... You know why? Because not only is he insanely talented, he also has such an enthusiasm for music you can't help but to get just as excited as him while he's playing! He's involved in some of the biggest and most world renowned musical events and projects (including his own). It is a mini miracle we were able to lock him down for a date as he is constantly on tour in different corners of the world. Bastid is knowledgeable and can play all genres of music, but it's his guest spots at DUTTY that allow him to pack up and play his extensive Reggae record collection. What a treat it is!

CHOPPA CHOP (Resident selector)
Returning from his annual trip to Jamaica, Choppa is set to share what is bubbling currently in the land where it all began, along with the foundation music we all love to hear! Being and performing in Kingston and across JA has given Choppa the opportunity to play out at legendary venues and parties including; Dub Club, Jam One International, Wickie Wackie, Vinyl Thursdays (at Veggie Meals on Meals), Vinyl Sundays (in Drapers, Portland) and Edna Manley College. This gave him the chance to perform with, and alongside artists/selectors such as; Ranking Joe, King Harar, Gabre Selassie, Exile di Brave, Kazam Davis, Infinite, TJ (“Likkle Briggie”) and Nesbeth.
Choppa began learning the tools of his trade - 2 turntables and a mixer - in ’94. After spending considerate time in St.Lucia, beginning in 1996, his sets started leaning heavily in Reggae. Continuing his education in another field in Scotland, it is there that his sound “Big Toe’s Hi-Fi” was born and the first hi-fi was built. Choppa Chop ran his sound throughout Scotland and the UK for the next 10 years. There are now three chapters (Toronto area/New Mexico/Leeds), each with their own custom made soundsystem. Currently living in Mono, Ontario, Choppa Chop’s influence by Kilimanjaro and other sounds from that time is still evident in his format and style, with a heavy emphasis on playing vinyl. The majority of his selections are presented and played in a unique juggling style. Roots, Rocksteady, Retro Dancehall, Foundation, Rub a Dub are what comprises Choppa’s sets. From the 70’s to what is being created right now.
