Rising, disco-delving duo Coma Coast offer up a ‘shoulder-shaking’ selection of disco, funk, electro, synth-pop and jackin’ house for the latest exclusive Clash DJ mix.
Consisting of London-based DJ/singer Mariano Robles and Venezuelan DJ/producer Rey Morales (after they met in Caracas in 2012), the duo’s sound is an unashamedly nostalgic meander through hazy synth-pop and ’80s-saluting disco and funk flavours that pushes all the right buttons. Their ‘1989/The Ritual’ EP, released earlier this year, even dips gently into new wave to achieve its funky, rose-tinted synth-pop shine, and their follow-up – the second release in a series of three EPs – ‘Fail Better/Last Song’, takes a similarly sunny, funky approach that just can’t be ignored.
The duo’s Clash mix works its way through punchy Miami disco bliss, grooving house, glittery, glistening electro-pop and plenty in-between. Don’t feel bad if you don’t recognise many names from the tracklist – these are two crate-diggers who know their musical subject matter intimately and aren’t afraid to flaunt their knowledge – for your benefit, of course – through a series of rare and underground tracks that never stray too far from a deliciously funky trail. Here are a few succinct words from CC themselves:
“Our exclusive DJ mix kicks off with the Boogie Vice remix of our song ‘The Ritual’ and channels some of our influences and some deep house, shoulder-shaking favourites. Enjoy!”
