CNP017 - Moschops - Skratch Fossils (7")
2019 - Cut & paste records
It’s the ways of the underground...
The 7” version of “Skratch Fossils” is now ready to hit portable platters around the globe! Moschops is the intrepid commander of Synapsid Studios where he is kept busy as a scholar and a teacher in the arts of sampling and recording. Keeping skratching and music-making fun is of the greatest importance to this lifelong beat creator. You can expect a fun and intuitively easy-to-use skratch tool within these ancient grooves.
Based on his first 12” skratch record release from 2018, Moschops has injected this 7” with new life and crafted this record to the highest level of precision possible. Loops from the original release have been reworked to function meticulously using a portable turntable with a few new fossilised samples thrown in for good measure.
On the A side you will find 7 skip-proof tracks built from a large range of styles. From hip-hop to rave tunes with no shortage of lasers, bass and breaks galore... this tool will keep the creative wax wiggler busy for days! The B side has a similar format of 7 skip-proof tracks with audio treasures hidden in-between the loops, ensuring the highest amount of original content possible into your productions and cuts!
As with all recent Cut & Paste Records skratch tool releases you will find an etch on both sides of the disc lined up at the starting point of each loop. Beyond looking supremely ill, these etches are designed to be used as cue point markers for the start of each track. Specifically aimed not only at skratchers but beat smiths as well, this release is pressed onto black vinyl to squeeze the maximum amount of quality out of the audio found on this disc.
The original artwork for the cover was created by Tops from Milton Keynes, UK.
