Melodica Radio Show 20 OctoberÂ 2014
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.
I’m feeling a bit hippy and spacy thanks to having just returned from a most excellent trip to Japan, so there’s a bit of a mellow drift to the show, the proverbial floating downstream in a boat made of glass. But never fear, before we reach the inevitable waterfall or rapids, by the end of the show, there’s a way out of the boat thanks to some clever house and disco. Whew! So that’s Caribou, Loleatta Holloway, some weird cover versions and Flying Lotus.
