More stuff about the music and stories on this weekâs Melodica.
All the shows are archived on the Chris Coco page at Mixcloud.
THAT FUZZY FEELING: CFCF – COME TRUE – UNO
This track from experimental chillout act CFCF, aka producer Michael Silver, is described by the label as a late night affair. It’s simple with a cool groove but there’s an indefinable special feeling about it that makes it the tune of the week.
PARADA 88 -YOU’RE GONNA MISS ME – INTERNATIONAL FEEL
The is are re-imagining, a re-version of the 80s house classic You’re Gonna Miss Me When I’m Gone by Turntable Orchestra. It works well in an old school / new school house set, giving some extra push and a little party edge to the proceedings.
STELLA POLARIS – SEVEN SEAS
Seven Seas is the new compilation from the people behind the excellent Stella Polaris Festival that happens every August in various parks in cities around Denmark. It includes fine work from Melodica favourites Lulu Rouge, as well as a Chris Coco track, something from Moby and a rather incongruous mix of a Robbie Williams tune. Overall though, a really good selection of downtempo electronic material that reflects the feel of the festival perfectly.
AGNES PRESENTS CAVALIER
Swiss techno producer and DJ has made a really cool deep house and atmospheric album for Drumpoet Community Records. It’s a mix of spacy house and ambient or just plain strange interludes that works well as a full album listen but also contains tunes that would fit well in a deep house set.
Allo Love is a collection of tunes that have been released as singles on the rather good Wah Wah 45s label. There’s dubby soul, souly jazz and jazz dub, plenty of girly vocals and a a sprinkling of really good songs on the selection. My favourite is a piece of proper modern electronic jazz by The Greg Foat Group. Nice.
