Christopher Coe, it’s fair to say, is not your average musician. In the mid 90s, he released a slew of cracking releases under his Digital Primate, the likes of which typically saw the producer lean on minimal sounds. These days, he’s back releasing under his own name, which last year’s LP, the magnificent ‘MNTNTS OF SLNC’, released via Carl Cox’s fledgling Awesome Soundwave label. Indeed, Coe is the first producer to release a full-length on the label, a worthy endorsement if ever there was one. Ahead of the Awesome Soundwave party at ADE (on October 17th), where Christopher will play alongside the likes of a bunch of live acts such as Mat Playford and Saytek, we caught up with the man in question to get the lowdown on his favourite afterparty jams. Suffice to say, his is an eclectic selection…
Can – Vitamin C
A brilliant krautrock tune with a chorus that may be familiar to a lot of techno heads. Can you recognise it? I did some work with Damo Suzuki.. we recorded a record together that never came out .. I think I should revisit it.
Sly and The Family Stone – Remember Who You Are
A deep and cool groove, and in my opinion Sly’s best tune ever..
Caribou – Can’t Do Without You
Just a lovely moving tune that brings back memories of good times.. it sounded nostalgic even when it was new.
Ame – Howling
A truly great remix of a very cool song.
Four Tet – Love Cry
Such a loose and compelling rhythm, Four Tet never fails to please.
Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five – The Message
Never, ever get tired of this one.
The Cure – A Forest
Blew my mind then and still does today.
David Bowie – Ashes to Ashes
No words necessary.
Talk Talk – Happiness is Easy
I listened to Talk Talk’s Colour of Spring incessantly for 5 years! Their music and production values still inspire me.
Talking Heads – This Must Be The Place
Everyone’s favourite isn’t it?
