Following on from the success of Scruscru’s EP earlier this year, Minor Notes comes correct with another slice of funk-fuelled Russian house music this time from Maxim Palchikov AKA Baltimore Chop with his Не остановить EP „Can’t stop, won’t stop“.
Maxim is a Moscow based producer and DJ who has released hip-hop and roots-inspired house music on labels such as Sub_Urban, Fade To Funk and Mole Music. It’s now time for him to step up with a new perspective which perfectly matches the Minor Notes sound.
Previously living in the USA, Maxim was an aspiring baseball player, thus the name Baltimore Chop (the rare situation in baseball, when a chopper that takes a high bounce near home plate, allowing the runner to reach first safely).
For this EP he uses analog instruments and old-school drum machines with killer dug vocal and other cleverly flipped sample chops. On remix duties, prolific Mexican deep houser 4004 steps up with a trademark remix to round off another fantastic EP from the Minor Notes family.
