Super Limited 7 inch - Highly Recommended! After dropping 2 EPs (The Lover, Sugar And Spice) and a breakbeat hardcore full length (Pacific) earlier this year, Coco Bryce is set to wrap things up for 2014 with Cold As Ice, a 4 track exploration of instrumental hip hop and skweee. Where both The Lover and Pacific were heavily inspired by 90s Rave and Hardcore, most of Cold As Ice is built around a framework of samples taken from various ethnic styles of music, ranging from steelband percussion from the Dutch Antilles on Voodoo, to traditional African chants and instruments on Selesha and ep opener Love Fool. Of course theres no shortage of drums on there either: Coco returns to the classics, not just for his next number, but for all 4 of the songs featured: chopped up funk breaks and old school drum computer programming make for a sound thatll leave you wondering if he mightve grown tired of trapped-out 808 beats over the last year or so. Which is not really the case. Its just that gritty old drum samples seemed to fit the gritty old African samples better than a series of triplet hi hats pulled from a Roland sample pack.
