Say Yes : Volume II : Curated by Coco Cole
Although, Coco Cole may well be a new name to us and some of you, this lady won’t be if you’re a listener to one of London’s top radio stations, Capital Xtra. Even though, Coco is a new name to us, she holds quite a glowing report card. At 21, Coco had landed a key role at, Black Butter Records and with six shows across the week on, Capital Xtra, one of them being the all important warm up to the weekend show on Friday evenings, she has been described as a “vital cog in the machinery of UK Dance” by, Mixmag. She has played for, Carl Cox and Maya Jane Coles and also smashed it at the, Secret Garden Party festival (UK).
Due to the success of her radio shows, Coco has built a very trustworthy platform to bring listeners not only familiar names but also some future stars in the making, which is exactly what her ‘Say Yes’ compilation series is here to do, raise awareness of undiscovered talent. And what an array of talent we have being brought our way! Seven outstanding free tracks of Deep / Tech House and Techno with music coming from, Timanti, BOY, Shoot The Ghost, Waxman, Paola Cantachin and Ireen Amness. The compilation also features a track from, Coco herself, which is her first adventure into the world of production and sees her collaborate with, Barber.
It seems that everything this lady touches turns to gold right now so the news that there is the foundations of a label be laid by, Coco, can only mean even more top music will be out there for us to all enjoy. We’ll certainly be keeping our eyes peeled for Vol.3 of the ‘Say Yes’ series but in the meantime get stuck into Vol.2 and after that check out the ten free tracks from Vol.1 below too. What a feast!
