It All Makes Sense

17th March 2011

Out on the decks again. Tonight the city feels like fumes. Fog-breath over Waterloo Bridge. Swimming against the commuter tide heading south, heading home. I am in Somerset House for the opening of Anthony Burrill’s latest show. Soundtracking the the movement of the invited, the graph geeks in big glasses, the show girls clutching their Chardonnay. Anthony has the top room in this show, he is the top typographical dog, the only one with music, the only one with enough space, the only one with a portrait of the the artist as a young man with a horse.

There’s a prefab photo booth so Wes takes a picture of me and I take a picture of Wes.

And there’s a newspaper called It All Makes Sense. And honestly, it does.

Gooding & Coco Believe

15th March 2011

Following up their brazen debut on Nang in 2010 Ibiza lord, Pete Gooding and Chill Capitano Chris Coco return with their follow up. This time their have enlisted the silky vocals of Peter Coyle, best known as the voice of Liverpool based Lotus Eaters who made the amazing “First Picture of You” in the early 80’s. “Believe” turns down the BPM quotient a few notches and sets the destinations for Balearic.

Pete Gooding has been spending a fair chunk of the year in Ibiza and this certainly shows through in this track. Chris Coco, ever the cool customer adds his polish and laid back Korg MS20 grooves to the proceedings. Peter Coyle, now a resident of France adds his vocals in a relaxed and well-measured timbre.

Remixes come from groovy Swiss customer Pharoh Black magic who manages to re-use some extra vocals (not even in the original) and turn in a underbelly growler of a remix, one for the floor. Next its off to Italy where Ajello (AKA DJ Rocca, studio partner of Dannele Baldelli) gives us some Italian sheen, analog burbles and warbling moroder-eque basslines.

Back to all things chilly and back to Western Russia (Ulyanovsk to be precise) and Volta Cab’s grooves match the climate, icy and solid. For all those who prefer things less vocal we also have included a whole swath of dubs, instrumentals and extra mixes on the digital side.

‘Believe’ is out in May on Nang Records
