Next up on Nang is a single from two DJs with a self-confessed chequered history. They spent some time in Ibiza with a determined eclectic DJing style and a friendship started behind the decks at 'Mambo' in Ibiza one summer evening continuing at nights with the two spinning together at 'Stella Polaris' and 'Roskilde' in Denmark and 'Bestival' in the Isle Of Wight.
At the start of 2009 Coco and Gooding started a little eclectic Thursday-nighter at 'The Player' in Soho. One thing led to another and after a series of fuzzy, hungover sessions at Chris's warehouse pad in Camden the club had spawned a track. The like-named groover 'The Player' is a mid tempo slow burner that features the debut of Mr. Pete Gooding as a cunning vocalist.
Their second collaboration took further bounds forward, again using Pete on vocals, and the bouncy, space-disco-meets-house groove that they called 'Night Dance' is the result. This one brings to mind magic moments in a basement bar. Like a fine musical cocktail it's one part Morgan Geist and a dash of Mr. Fingers.
We have deployed Tokyo based Max Essa on the remix patrol. He turns in something with an early proto-house/Tony Humphries style groove. Cool cat around town Toby Tobias rounds off the package with his uber cool laid back disco minimalist grooves.
