Coco Bryce - Ma Bae Be LuvLABEL: Lobster Theremin
Dutch DJ and producer, Coco Bryce, makes his Lobster Theremin debut with an incredible offering of jungle, hardcore and broken beats that conjure up feelings of warm, nostalgic euphoria. Over 25 years in the game, recently it feels Bryce is unstoppable - unleashing killer cuts on Dead Man's Chest's Western Lore, 7th Storey Projects and Fresh 86. Nodding to the sound of the Netherlands he was enamoured with in the 90's - hardcore, gabber, breakbeat - and channelling the spirit of the UK hardcore scene; Lobster Theremin imprint LT White is the perfect home for this extremely vibesy, playful EP.
Title track, 'Ma Bae Be Love' sees saccharine sweet vocals, bouncy broken beats and jungle energy come together - an uplifting cut you'll want to keep on loop. A2, 'Blue Tile Lounge' marries intricate drum patterns full of sunkissed grooves, with warm pads and uplifting vox lines. On the flip, 'Smoke Screen' reaches further into hardcore terrority with acid lines bubbling up, frantic percussion and whirlpool electronics swirling throughout, with timeless rave references - watch ya bass bins! Finally, 'Get Schwifty' is a total crusher. Hectic, old skool jungle that still sounds fresh as hell, one to shake the floor to the core, a total stonker!
