After a good few years discovering and nurturing new talent I have decided to end my involvement with the label Melodica Recordings and its parent company MRC to concentrate on other activities including my own productions. The Melodica radio show will, of course, continue as usual. Chris Coco 16 March 2015
This is roughly what’s happening, in chronological order. Music, football, beer; music and nature in West Cork; a new album nearly done, another one started, plans and schemes, dirty streets, bright light, hope for the future; you know the drill.

This is what DialogueInc.com said about Coco Steel & Lovebomb – The Chillout Album: Setting us down in a field of wild flowers, light fractals and winks of cheeky fun is the trio of Coco, Steel and Lovebomb, whose full length The Chillout Album recalls vintage KLF, sunsets in Ibiza and pints in a pub in London. Mixing field recordings with the warmth and glow of synth chords and surf guitar, the spirit of the yoga studio and the smoke of spliffs rolled beachside in Bali, the record is best digested as a whole—an immersive bath of sound handcrafted for sunsets, sunrises and the Balearic sense of everything and nothing that so bewitched us this summer. Which sums it up rather nicely actually.
