Had a really nice writing session with Chris Coco in his studio in London. He’s so sweet and lovely guy! Chris played me a track he’s been working on and I sang/whispered a very static melody onto it. Sound-wise I’d say it reminds me of Mazzy Star which I love. The track is utterly beautiful and very visual and the lyric is quite surrealistic and a nature like.The song will be popping out hopefully next year.
Coco will be releasing a new, anticipated album early next year, and another track we co-wrote a while back will be on the album. It’s very cool track and quite unconventional.
Chris Coco has been working as a DJ since the acid house explosion of the late 80s. He has edited DJ magazine, worked for BBC Radio 1 on the after hours show The Blue Room. He has made artist albums for Warp and Distinctive Records. His music has appeared on many compilations including the big ones, Cafe Del Mar and Hotel Costes.
He currently broadcasts and syndicates a weekly electronic music radio show called Melodica and runs his label, Melodica Recordings, out of his studio/office in London. The Guardian called Melodica “the hazy, lazy sound of the summer”.
