Buy MicroChop a coffee


Micro-Chop is a website/Substack newsletter created and written by Gino Sorcinelli that dissects beatmaking, DJing, music production, rapping, and sampling.

During my time as a freelance journalist I’ve written engaging, narrative non-fiction articles for Ableton, HipHopDX, Okayplayer, Passion of the Weiss, Red Bull Music Academy, Reverb,, and Still Crew.

My Micro-Chop article on the making of Madvillainy was selected for inclusion in the book 'Best Damn Hip Hop Writing: 2018.'

Micro-Chop started as a Medium publication in 2016 and has earned an extremely passionate, dedicated following in the years since. Now I’m looking to further expand my audience.

The Micro-Chop newsletter dissects beatmaking, DJing, music production, rapping, and sampling. Each article I write to my subscribers aims to explore the intersection of the personal experience and process behind a wide variety of songs and albums. Many Micro-Chop stories have a strong focus on instrumental hip-hop and rap music, but I also write about several other genres.

No wrote me an awesome piece of film criticism about the movie BASKET CASE in 2008ish and I never paid you or sent it you. People were talking about micro-chop on a rap blogger discord and I remembered and thought "aha--I am going to atone for some old sins!" Thanks for all the great writing over the years.
