Very interesting LP of collaged world musics here, curated and arranged by Daniel Padden. I'm not sure what the intention of this record is but as a mashed-up document of intriguing African, Far European and Eastern sounds it works on many levels. Stylistically 'Ship Chop' is a rhythmically sublime disc that evokes a pan global journey through disparate lands whilst finding a common language in organic tribal grooves and exotic regional folk/field recordings. For me it works better when the segues are relatively seam free, there's an annoying bit near the start where a repeated loop is used that sounds like a stuck record and that makes me want to wrestle Daniel to the floor and bite a huge hole in his cheek with my rabid gnashing fangs. Elsewhere there's some proper wonky use of loops, cleverly spliced to create a drunken plunderphonic hypno-fest but I like it most when a rhythm is left to run, flowing effortlessly into another fascinating esoteric tune from some exotic corner of a faraway land. Largely essential stuff from Dekorder that fans of anything from the Finders Keepers vaults to old Smithsonian Folkways archive releases will lap up.
