Coco Bryce and Amy Dabbs release the first instalment of their Slightly Involved project on label LT-CODA, in which they bring their own styles and techniques to tracks the other artist has recently released.
In this first instalment, using tracks released solely via Lobster Theremin and its sub-labels, Amy Dabbs‘ Girl Like Me and Allure get the full Coco Bryce treatment, and Amy Dabbs takes on Coco’s Twenty One Lies and Ma Bae Be Luv.
Coco, renowned for incorporating elaborately edited layers of breaks samples into his sound, serves up a slice of acid jazz in Geezer Like Me, his take on Amy Dabbs‘ Girl Like Me. Complementing this, is Allude, an edgier jungle version of Amy’s track, Allure.
Amy, who codes her own drum patterns from the ground up, delivers us Twenty One Highs, a liquid style take on Coco Bryce’s Twenty One Lies, with Ma Bae Be Blonde, her version of Coco’s Ma Bae Be Luv, paying homage to the UK’s early rave era.
All four tracks are serious head+heart melters and for two producers that are championing the new wave, it’s their ode to what came before combined with today’s genre merging movement that sets them apart.
1. Twenty One Highs
3. Geezer like me
