Yama Warashi have received plays on BBC6 music (from DJ’s such as Cerrys Matthews and Tom Ravenscroft), NTS as well as hosting her own Freakzone show with Stuart MaConie and Camp Radio in Switzerland.‘ Blending free jazz, Japanese Folk and psych rock, Yama Warashi’s music evokes images of the coming of Spring’ – Heard of Hearing Music
ChopChop play eclectic songs that veer from super-bumping agit-funk to angular jazz-punk and beyond. Led by the gesticulations Galician performance artist Xelís de Toro, the band whip up a tense and exciting brew of sounds live, and have been described as “a fantastic life affirming noise” by BBC Radio 6 Music.
“CHOPCHOP’s music snakes round its orator like a slippery thing, cymbals replaced by the clatter of hubcaps on toms, cutlery-jammed guitars – there’s an itchy jazzy vibe to the melodics, fuelled by a fertile imagination full of bruised shapes and punkish angles.” – FREQ
