Melodica 29 October 2012

29th October 2012 Comments Off , ,

Chris Coco’s weekly radio broadcast. An eclectic selection of brilliant new music starting with house and moving on to electronica, downtempo, acoustic and all sorts of other styles loosely connected to dance and electronic music. Let tastemaker Chris Coco guide you through his selection of the week’s best new music. This episode the starting point is some classic techno and the end point is some new house, in between, it’s all electronic, but trying to pick a genre for this very modern music is more than a little difficult. There’s a blur of styles, a mash of influences that means that most of this stuff could only have been made right about now. [setlist] 1 John Beltran – Synaptic Transmission – We Love 2 Andres – New For You – We Love 3 Coyote Clean Up – Mount Babe Bricks – We Love THAT FUZZY FEELING (TUNE OF THE WEEK) 4 Sensate Focus – Sensate Focus 2.5 – Y – Sensate Focus 5 Lapalux – Call The Chops – Brainfeeder 6 Shelter Point – Braille – Hot Flush 7 Mario Basanov – We Are Child Of Love feat Minalg – Needwant 8 Dam Mantle – Blueberry – Notown 9 Mouse On Mars – WOW – Monkeytown 10 Falty DL – Straight + Arrow (Four Tet Remix) – Ninja Tune 11 Obsolete Music Technology – Swell – Dolly 12 Cottam – Relapse – Aus Music

Velo City

City Jet out of City for ADE and a hi tech lo fi experiment over the water in Velo City, Bike Town, Amsterdam. I love the calm of this town. I love that cyclists rule the centre. I feel at home. On a bike you don’t stop. Pedestrians jump. Motorists slow. You go. All cities should be like this. I am keeping my wits about me. Using not enough film and too much iPhone. Like I said, it’s hi tech lo fi, the way forward. There are meetings, arranged and chance. There is the swapping of cards, CDs and ideas. There is the traditional lack of sleep, excess drinking and steely early morning hangovers, disco lights, misty dawns and bright-angled sunlight, burning retinas, twisting the steel band of headache. There is hope in a changing world, and other pretty meaningless but generally uplifting slogans. And there is cycling. Ah, cycling, in proper bike lanes, up and over the hump backed canal bridges, down beautiful, sunlit streets, as the leaves drop gracefully, in waves, into the murky water.

An eclectic selection of brilliant new music starting with house and moving on to electronica, downtempo, acoustic and all sorts of other styles loosely connected to dance and electronic music. Let tastemaker Chris Coco guide you through his selection of the week’s best new music. This episode is mostly about real electronic music, with heart and soul, made with machines and computers, by humans, with love. There are a couple of diversions into alternative music and the world of barbers, but hey, I like to keep it interesting in here.
