Review

Now-Again Records, in association with Five Day Weekend, presents Switched On the newest project from Mr. Chop. The producer, engineer and multi-instrumentalist behind several Now-Again and Jazzman Records releases is the proprietor of Cheshire, UK based Ape Recording Studios, one of the finest analog studios in the world. Not to mention, it is a repository for vintage synthesizers, guitars, drums and gearsourced from the world over. Which brings us to Switched On, his homage to the great Moog-lead albums that proliferated in the wake of the synthesizer’s invention in the late 60s and early 70s. Unlike those records - like Dick Hyman's Age of Electronicus which contained one great synth-funk track amidst a series of soft pop hits - this album is all killer, and no filler. Mr. Chop tackles songs by the likes of Can, the JBs, Jimi Hendrix and Jimmy Smith via a still-futuristic blend of heavy drums and funky basslines by The Heliocentrics' Malcolm Catto and Jake Ferguson, and his own fuzzy guitars and cosmic keys.
