Cooly G
A South Londoner who produces, sings and DJ’s and who has released on Hyperdub Records for the last 4-5 years. Cooly’s music exists in it’s own hinterland, her two highly lauded album releases, ‘Playin Me’ , recorded without any frills in her home studio, simultaneously recall a legacy of black British music, filtering the female pressure and reggae lilt of Lovers Rock’s kitchen sink dramas, the sweet seduction of 80’s Quiet Storm, through to bitter-sweet synths, polyrhythmic dub decay of early jungle and tough tribal drums, while 2014’s ‘ Wait Till Night’ slowed the pace down, with a sexy mix of R & B and trap beats, drawn through smokey South London dub, it’s a unique piece of lo-fi bedroom music. The music she’s released for the dance floor as singles is full of stripped down, tribal post-garage beats, often graced by dubtracted vocals, seductions and vexations, uttered over empty spaces and lush washes and bass booms. Her productions have garnered support from DJ’s such as Annie Mac and Benji B as well as big names on the DJ Circuit. Along the way she’s remixed a wide number of names from Neneh Cherry, the Knife, Kei$ha, Speech Debelle, and Zero 7.
