Chris Coco’s 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. In this week’s Melodica cocktail: a double measure of SloMoDisco splashed over some experimental house shaken with a dash of old school reggae and some crazy cover versions, topped off with a little experimental electronica, it’s all here and it tastes divine.

More stuff about the music and stories on this weekâs Melodica – this week it’s all about bears (sort of). In tune with the Melodica aesthetic, covering a broad range of exciting, inspiring, beautiful new music from electronica to house to experimental. Melodica chart on Juno Download: here. THAT FUZZY FEELING: YAMBEE – NATURAL OFF This week’s tune of the week is a collaboration between two fine purveyors of modern disco grooves – Yam Who and Ashley Beedle. So now the name makes sense, clever huh? (But remember not to confuse it with Tom Yam Bee Soup, pictured here). The single is a forthcoming release on Ashley’s Out Hear Audio. The flip is one of those long Kraut Rock psychedelic workouts. THE BEST DRESSED CHICKEN IN TOWN The Best Dressed Chicken In Town is a classic slice of old school 70s reggae from Dr Alimantado. The album was originally released in 1978. He has pressed up some fresh vinyl on his own Keyman Records label so we can all enjoy it in it’s crackly glory. It features Horace Andy, Lee Perry and King Tubby and was recorded at legendary Jamaican studios including Black Ark and Channel One. Chicken at Phonica shop MAXMILLION DUNBAR It’s the second week playing something from Maxmillion Dunbar’s excellent EP, Max Trax For World Peace on the Future Times label. Maxmillion on Bleep. 6TH BOROUGH PROJECT Watch out for the forthcoming album from 6th Borough Project, aka Craig Smith and Graham from The Revenge. It’s called One Night In The Borough and if the first sampler tracks are anything to go by it’s going to be a fine collection of sampled-up Scottish SloMoDisco.
This weekend we went to Splash Point. We took pictures. And ended up taking a picture.
