Exclusive Steve Cobby Guest mix on Radio COR

The Civilisation Of the Rough fam take their monthly trip along the coast to host the Radio COR show on 1 Brighton FM (first Sat of every month, 2-6pm).

For our October show (Sat 7th Oct), we have something VERY special for the COR faithful. Ahead of the release of his cracking new album, we’ve been lucky enough to get an exclusive 60min guest mix from none other than Steve Cobby to play on the show!

Steve’s new album, Hemidemisemiquaver,  is out the end of Oct, and it’s a gooden. Chilled down, sometimes dubby, sometimes a hint of Fila Brazilia, always quality.

Here’s what others have said about it:

LAURENT GARNIER- WWFM & MEUH “Lovely atmosphere, beautiful deep chilled funkiness. A Great album. Perfect for late summer..”

MAX ESSA – WARP RECORDS “Love this! A deeply satisfying experience beginning to end. From the languid beauty of ‘Cherry-Skin Blanket’ and ‘Fixing The Shadows’ to the nocturnal throb of ‘Canyons of Lower Manhattan’ I look forward to playing this for many nights to come.”

TRIS TIAN B WWFM / BOILER ROOM “This album sounds dope. I’d love to play it on Worldwide FM…”

PHIL MISON – CANTOMA “A beautiful piece of work by Steve Cobby. There’s something on this wonderful album for everybody..”
PAUL MURPHY – CLAREMONT 56 / LENG  “Really lovely album. Fixing The Shadows is the track for me. I’ll be playing this one for sure

High praise indeed!

here’s the press release:

Well over a quarter of a century has passed since Steve Cobby’s music first appeared in record stores, but the Hull musician has lost none of his appetite for writing and releasing new music. Having re-introduced himself to the record buying public via the critically acclaimed Saudade album back in 2104, Cobby has gone on to release a string of fine solo records under his given name. This October, the former Fila Brazillia and Heights of Abraham member is set to release a brand new album, Hemidemisemiquaver, and it could well be his most accomplished solo work yet.

Written and produced in the “Shedio” at the bottom of his garden,the album is little less than a kaleidoscopic musical trip through the hive mind of our hirsute hero. Those with a wide musical palette will spot a dizzying array of influences – from dub, trip-hop, lounge jazz and Balearica, to wide-eyed electronica, early ‘80s NYC synth-pop, Pat Metheny style jazz-fusion and sweaty drum and bass – as well as a few sly nods to Cobby’s own musical past. It’s as vibrant, colourful and effervescent a set as you’ll hear all year, packed full of warm, attractive and melodious tracks that sidestep conventional categorization.

Really, we should expect little less from Steve Cobby, a man whose musical resume looks more impressive with every passing year. Most will know of his production partnership with Dave McSherry under the Fila Brazilia alias; after all, the duo’s career spanned 14 years and resulted in 12 acclaimed albums and over 70 remixes for the likes of Radiohead, Busta Rhymes, Black Uhuru, Simple Minds, Moloko and the Orb. Some will be aware, too, of his involvement with Pork Recordings, the eclectic, open-minded imprint that became a byword for quality throughout the 1990s. It was on Pork that he released his first solo material as The Solid Doctor (he later also recorded as White Dopes on Funk and JJ Fuchs).

Although now famed for his solo work, Steve Cobby has spent much of career collaborating with others. There was his collaboration with former Chakk members Sim Lister and Jake Herries as Heights of Abraham (whose inspired Electric Hush album is now considered one of the finest downtempo sets of the 1990s), a surprise hook-up with legendary pianist and composer Harold Budd, and a string of singles co-produced by former Cabaret Voltaire man Stephen Mallinder.

Earlier this year Mr Cobby turned soundtrack composer via a film about Hull created for the city’s 12-month stint as European City of Culture. He also found time to collaborate with playwright Russ Litten on “For The Many”, an inspiring anthem for a better Britain that led to a blossoming friendship with Jeremy Corbyn. Clearly, the Labour leader has impeccable taste.

So, if you like the sound of that, be sure to check out Steve’s website and bag a pre-order copy. In the meantime, tune in to the Radio COR show 2-6pm Sat 7th Oct and get yourselves an earful of Steve’s exclusive guest mix on our show!

Big Love.
