Come In We're Melodica

Released: 
10/12/2012

Melodica Recordings is one year old! To celebrate this momentous event we've sent our key releases to some of our favourite artists on the label and elsewhere, for a retake, a look back, a flash forward or a new vision of the original. We’ll be releasing a comprehensive digital album of 14 tracks, plus a 12” sampler of our 4 favourite mixes.

On the sampler’s A-side, R&S / Apollo artist Synkro goes toe to toe with Chris Coco's 'My Desire', accompanied by a tasty refix of Deekie's track 'Rush' by recent Bicep cohort, Ejecta. On the flip Coco delivers a deep, deep take on the fluttering garage of Didz and Chico's 'When I Say' and Max Essa re-spins the dials on the No Logo cover of Eurythmics' 'This City Never Sleeps.

Here's what label boss Chris Coco had to say:

“Doing these remixes has helped make the creative family feel that I was after at the start of this process; we're all swapping ideas and tunes now, helping each other to grow and surprising each other with great new sounds. Year two is going to be even more exciting, with fresh bands, crazy party events in tents and basements, plenty of proper quality albums on vinyl (with a free download too).

For now, sit back and relax or jump up and dance, but whatever way you do it please go ahead and enjoy this fine collection of most excellent music from some of the most wonderful people around.”

'On the digital release, watch out for Skintologists Vs. Architeq’s brilliant future-dub excursion ‘Downstairs Dubbing’ and the blissful ‘Summer Breezin’’ by 3 Balrearos Vs. Project Club’ amongst many others!

If you enjoy these tunes don't forget to track back to the vinyl sampler releases!
