about

It is with great pleasure we present a compendium of work by the artist known as Stoppa. Over the years I have known him, he has always been working on one project or another. From poetry inspired satire to hard hitting electro-or from country flavoured blues to urban MC driven funk-from lush string arrangements to Afrocentric rythms-the music is always interesting-challenging and of it’s time. He veers from the lo-fi sound of his Dog Ears Montana persona to the hi-tec modernism of the Skydiver project.

Also featured here are some of his collaborations and remixes-a varied and salubrious cast of well known artists from Kelis and Public Enemy to Salma Hayek and Laurie Anderson. His collaboration with Edwyn Collins yields some fine examples of how guitars can work in an urban environment and there’s even a classical piece he wrote with string arranger Dan Hewson.

This is a cornucopia of instrumentation and humour, sounds designed for the dance floor and the cerebral-it’s all here . Many of the projects were released on his own Freeworld Records imprint to favourable reviews but many were not. I have set about compiling a wide and varied album which showcases a writer / producer who doesn’t hold with convention. The album is called ‘End of an Ear ‘ Ole -Stoppa’s acerbic humour manifests itself even in the title . So listen with the open mindedness with which it was created.



Yours sincerely Robert Hudson
