Image: 1603343 Greek rhythmrustler Chop Juggler has dropped his debut album –
More Is Less – to follow up the well-received Diggasmic EP on Cult
Classic Records. Released onthe prolific Cold Busted label, More
Is Less collects eleven top notchbeat-heavy jams from the young
producer, now in his early twenties but involved in music making
since the beginning of his teens. His artist name is apt, as Chop
Juggler is adept at taking loops and samples and melding, twisting,
and – yes – chopping them into intricate compositions.
“Amethyst” provides convincingevidence, seemingly disparate
sources are cut into sonic snatches, layered andbursting in and out
of the mix to any beat-head’s delight. There’s also themore uptempo
“Night Travel” which sounds just like that … if one is travelingby
moonlight in a ’70s television crime drama. Slower, spacey moments
like “Money Can’t Buy Time” and “Brave New World” showcase Chop
Juggler’s depth, but with his ear for striking samples and tough hip
hop beats still in full display. More Is Less follows through in its title’s
statement by never overwhelming, but the album’s satisfying flow will
indeed find the listener looking for more from this talented producer.
