Melodica 25 November 2013 by Chris Coco on Mixcloud Chris Coco’s award winning 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 is a celebration of another award nomination for Melodica. This time in the DJmagazine Best of British, in the best podcast or radio show category to be precise, and this is both, depending on how and where you listen, on the radio or online. So wherever you are in the world, however you have come across this show, do me a favour and skip over to the DJmag website, find Best Of British and cast your vote for Melodica. Innit. Now – music… It’s moody electronics all the way really, from really cool house to really weird techno, with a little break for some singing, with electronics, in the middle. 1 Jack Dixon – The Things I Gave You – White Asega 2 Unknown – Leslie Crowther – Man Make Music THAT FUZZY FEELING (TUNE OF THE WEEK) 3 Four Tet – Kool FM (Champion Remix) – Text 4 The Marx Trucker – The Bishop Of New Hampshire – Greta Cottage Workshop 5 Haraket – Levelhead – Melodica Recordings 6 London Grammar – Hey Now (Hanami Bootleg) – Soundcloud file 7 Axel Bowman – Fantastic Piano – Studio Barnhus 8 Raudive – Slowing Time – Macro Recordings 9 Recondite – Stems – Ghostly International 10 Colo – Holidays (Christian Löffler Remix) – Ki Records 11 Lord Of The Isles – 301C Symphony – Permanent Vacation 12 Grizzly Bear – Sleeping Ute (Nicolas Jaar Remix) – Warp

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 all about euphoria and the magic of music. So it’s from the heart, all over the place, a little f***ed up, rather emotional; like always, but more so; maybe it’s the season, maybe it’s the circumstances, maybe it’s because everything is such a struggle, maybe it’s because everything is such a pleasure, maybe it’s because we’re all just holding on… 1 James Fox – Holding On (Slow Jam Mix) – Needwant 2 Joakim – Are You Vegetarian – Versatile 3 Mr Fingers – Can You Feel It (Jakobin & Domino’s Pump Up The Jam Rework) – Soundcloud File THAT FUZZY FEELING (TUNE OF THE WEEK) 4 The Marx Trukker – The Bishop Of New Hampshire – Greta Cottage Workshop 5 Haraket – Levelhead – Melodica Recordings STRINGS, WOOD AND A BOX OF AIR 6 Grizzly Bear – Smothering Green – Warp 7 The Beatles – Free As A Bird (Oosh Edit) – Soundcloud File) 8 Sigur Ros – Rafstraumur (Cyril Hahn Remix) – XL 9 Recondite – Leafs – Ghostly International 10 Roger Eno – Field Of Gold – All Saints 11 Sampha – Too Much – XL 12 Perera Elsewhere fest Gonjasufi – Giddy 13 Laraaji – A Cave In England – All Saints

Melodica 11 November 2013 by Chris Coco on Mixcloud Chris Coco’s award winning 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 we explore the outer reaches of new and old ambient music, also known as post, post-dubstep experimental synth and effects stuff; and current club music, also known as good old house; with a little deviation into alternative in the middle. You know it makes sense. 1 Laurel Halo – Dr Echt – Hyperdub 2 Deetron – Sing – Music Man 3 Cut Copy – Free Your Mind – Modular 4 Ricardo Baez – We Come Around – Toy Tonics THAT FUZZY FEELING (TUNE OF THE WEEK) 5 Haraket – Levelhead – Melodica Recordings 6 War Paint – Love Is To Die – Rough Trade LIFE’S A BEACH 7 William Onyeabor – Atomic Bomb – Luaka Bop 8 LB Dub Corp – Nearly Africa – Ostgut Ton 9 Mount Kimbie – Made To Stray (DJ Koze Remix) – Warp 10 Laurel Halo – Ainnome – Hyperdub 12 Laraaji – Being Here – All Saints Records
