8/10 Brian Staff review, 08 December 2011

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.
