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. This episode I’m back in the studio after a few weeks out in the field trying to catch up with a real pile of vinyl and a digital avalanche of sound files on the desktop. So we start with some of that modern house then sort of slide into a very mellow ending. I don’t know how it happens, but it does. [setlist] 1 Leon Vynehall – Don’t Know Why – Man Make Music 2 ZZT – ZZAfrica (Julio Bashore Remix) – Turbo THAT FUZZY FEELING (TUNE OF THE WEEK) 3 Boddika, Joy Orbison & Pearson Sound – Faint – Sunklo 5 Sinkane – Running (Daphni Remix) – Phonica Records Special Edition 6 Sando Perri – Love & Light (Ton Croose) – Phonica Records Special Edition 7 Soft Rocks – Little Lights (Cos Mes Remix) – ESP Institute 8 Gudrun Gut – Simply The Best (Thomas Fehlmann Remix) – Monika Enterprise 9 Cat Power – Cherokee (Nicolas Jaar Remix) – Digital File 10 DFRNT – Home – Echodub 11 Blue Daisy X Unknown Shapes – Pillow Talk – Black Acre 12 Logreybeam – Opening – Muri Records 13 Chilly Gonzalez – Kenaston – Gentle Threat

Let tastemaker Chris Coco guide you through his selection of the week’s best new music. This episode I am playing reggae at the One Love festival with Mixmaster Morris. We have 12-5, daytime, maximum chillout vibes in a reggae style, with a few side tracks, hour on, hour off. It’s one of those afternoons that just flows, no pressure, just good company, sunshine and great music. What with Morris and Saxon and Channel One, it turns out to be an inspiring day out in the sunshine. One Love. Now all sing… Jamaica have one and two and three, Jamaica have one and two and three… [setlist] 1 Augustus Pablo & The Revolutionaires – Spirit Of Umoja 2 King Tubbys – Bag A Wire Dub 3 Doctor Alimantado – Unitone Skank 4 Tapper Zukie – Ghetto Rock 5 Vin Gordon – Magnum Force 6 Jonathan Richman – Egyptian Reggae 7 Dennis Bovell – Burden 8 Big Youth – Burning Dub 9 Augustus Pablo – Curly Locks 10 Lee Perry – Get Ready Dub 11 Aggrovators – Nice Time Dub 12 Offshore – Pepper 13 Rupie Edwards – Skanga 14 Unknown – Unknown 15 Unknown – Unknown 16 Gregory Isaacs – Cool Down The Pace

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. This episode comes live from the Stop Making Sense festival in Croatia. Chris soundtracks an afternoon of sunbathing from the wooden shack that doubles as a DJ booth on the beach at the festival. The sound of cicadas is almost as loud as the music in the booth and the view is spectacular – sun bathers, just beyond the Function One speaker stack to the left, a lagoon and what looks like a wooden pirate ship straight ahead. It’s extremely hot and the music reflects the mood. [setlist] 1 Now Now Now – Problem – Balearic Gabba 2 Deekie – Rush (Joel Hood Remix) – Melodica Recordings 3 Idjut Boys – Love Hunter – Smalltown Supersound 4 Ben Sidran – About Love – Digital File 5 Noir & Haze – Around (Acoustic Version) – Cool D:Vision 6 Pepe Bradock – Deep Burnt – Vulture 7 Sonarpilot – June Dub (Brendon Moeller Dub 1) – Sonar Pilot Audio 8 Greg Paulus – Yellow Sky – K7 9 The Paradise – In Love With You – Vulture 10 Wings – Love Is Strange – EMI 11 Seu Jorge & Almaz – The Model – Now Again Records
