Long time collaborators Rui DaSilva and Chris Coco have a new ep coming out on Rui’s Kismet label now. The Ep features three new tracks – the deep vocal house tune Don’t Say Nothing, it’s companion instrumental Say Something and the darker after hours Make It.
It’s been a while since club legend Rui DaSilva and chill out supremo Chris Coco got together to make a record.Â
They made several singles for Rui’s label Kismet Records, the most successful being Saudade, still used today by many DJs as a late night super deep secret weapon.
Now, Coco has travelled to Rui’s current studio base in Ibiza to collaborate on new pieces which reflect their mutual love of deep, experimental electronic music.
There are three tracks to choose from here.
Two companion pieces, Don’t Say Nothing and Say Something, a song and an instrumental are on the A side.
Don’t Say Nothing is about the total breakdown of a relationship, the point where it is impossible for the two people involved to communicate in any way. Say something is, perhaps appropriately, an instrumental, no words but a more optimistic feel.
The song titles owe a debt to a poster by graphic artist Anthony Burrill.
On the flip, Make It has a more after hours feel, the lyrics a fractured poem about the futility of modern existence itself.
