About the show
Playing tracks by
Mandrill, Dr. Buzzard’s Original Savannah Band, Gwen McCrae, Bob James, Melba Moore and more.
Dublin based producer & DJ, The Fruitman, delivers his hand picked harvest for Edition 12 of The Chop Shop. Entitled “Comfort For A Trouble Mind” the mix features a great late night listening assortment with a varied pallet of Juicy tunes sliced ‘n’ diced with great precision & interjected with skilfully placed cuts & drops. Citing Gilles Peterson & Mr Scruff as influences it’s clear as to what pedigree of music we’re dealing with here but what sets him apart from his peers is an approach which is all his own & an abundance of skill. This bunch of tracks comes with no slim pickings & features soul staples such as Curtis Mayfield, Ann Peebles, Gwen McCrae ,here with her timeless “90% Of Me Is You” & the captivating bass of Aaron Neville’s mighty “Hercules”.
