daniel savio is one of the originators of the skweee genre, and actually the one who first coined the term skweee to describe the process of squeezing each and every sound used in his tunes from one single synth. it goes whithout saying that myor is very proud to present this 7 inch by the master of his trade. assecs denied is about as close as youll get to a banger within this freakazoid genre: compelling drum works, catchy synth bleeps and some obscured vocal snippets. on make it personal señor savio treads a slower and more modest pace. still skweee though, just a bit more relaxed and even slightly melancholi
in the year 2053, two japanese musical explorers by the names of katsuyoshi and yousuke, travelled to the city of breda in the netherlands. whilst drinking beers in a park near the train station, they stumbled upon an old, partially decayed usb stick, hidden behind a trashcan. with usb technology being long absolete by then, they had no way of checking what was on there until returning back home to tokyo, where yousuke still had a macbook from around the turn of the century tucked away under his bed. after retreiving the data, the stick turned out to contain two 128kbps mp3s of unreleased coco bryce material. utilizing an extensive and painstaking radiocarbon dating procedure, they managed to pinpoint the production date to the spring of 2017. the tokyo natives then proceeded to reverse the mp3s back to their initial wav format via state of the art 2053 audio technology, and emailed them to richy at binary feedback, who subjected the files to a spot of mastering. richy immediately recognised the tunes from a series of youtube id request videos that had been doing the rounds for the previous 36 years. being the shrewd business man that he is, he decided to contact rick sanchez, who in turn teletransported the tracks back to 2017, dropping them off at an undisclosed dutch pressing plant. romanian visual artist raw parigi was contacted to sort out the labels, after which the records were pressed up and distributed to shops across the globe, hopefully making their way into the homes of hundreds of jungle and drumfunk enthusiasts worldwide. amen
dutch jungle loons fff and coco bryce team up once again for another amen excursion on myor massiv. space is the place on this 12inch, with both jams featuring a short documentary s worth of chatter about giant planets, failed stars and opposing quadrants. whereas fff takes a rather intricate and, dare i say it, intelligent approach on the a-side, coco bryce s more massiv goes straight for the throat, with amen chops and a double tempo pulse bassline being dropped mere seconds after take off.
volume 6 comes courtesy of label owner coco bryce himself. side a features a synthy roller by the name of “rubber track”. leaning heavily on samples lifted from an undisclosed (yet very well known) 80 s horror flick, it displays coco s darker side. no crazy, over the top break beat edits, but serious business nonetheless. the flipside is a whole other story: “d.p.s.” is all about the beats. choppage galore, heavy subs and ragga chants. this one has “dancefloor tear out” written all over it.
nice price deal !!! the new light club 7 inch is a continuance of their ascent into the realms of underground beat king immortality. somewhere in between the likes of araabmuzik and sampling records in the library slightly drunk, these feather-weight clubbers have returned to bring us what is the most cohesive release to date.
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.
tropical heat volume 1 is the first in a series of compilation eps on the myor imprint. six tracks provided by six of the best beat producers on the planet right now. rekordah (lo fi funk, pollen) & coco bryce (harmnia, lowriders) both opt for some abstract beat mangling, while harmnia head honcho mesak delivers a slice of prime skweee minimalism. slugabed (ramp, planet mu) gets deep, slow and melancholic on >here you are<. ni?o (dodpop, galleta) takes the best of electronic funk and combines it with some neat crooked beat trickery, resulting in some top notch instrumental future r&b. to finish it off we got saccage teaming up with incense for a classic boom bap style hip hop tune.
