RESTAURANT, bar and lounge Marini’s on 57 will be releasing its follow-up to last year’s chill out house music compilation Sunset Hours (compiled by Jose Padilla) in conjunction with the bar’s third anniversary.
Titled Sunset Hours Vol. Two, it will be compiled by Chris Coco and Steve Miller (aka Afterlife).
This will be the brand’s second album release in a year, which will be distributed globally and will feature an original track called Sunset Hours (Marini’s Remix).
Chris Coco has been working as a DJ since the acid house explosion of the late 80s.
He has been editor of DJ Mag in its early days where he coined the term ‘Chill Out House’ for the genre, worked for BBC Radio 1 on the after hours show, The Blue Room, and has made artiste albums for Warp and Distinctive Records.
Besides Marini’s on 57, he has made compilations for Playboy, Ministry of Sound, EMI Classical and Trojan Records.
His music has also appeared on many other compilations such as Café Del Mar and Hotel Costes.
His radio show, Melodica, grew from its online home on Mixcloud to include broadcasts in cities from Melbourne to Istanbul to Chicago. Even the UK daily, The Guardian, called it “the hazy, lazy sound of the summer”.
With a monthly residency at the noted East London dinner dance Disappearing Dining Club; plus regular gigs at big festivals like Bestival, Glastonbury and Stop Making Sense and at cool venues like The Bedroom Bar and The Gowlett in London, Big Chill Bar in Bristol and international shows from Space in Ibiza to KuDeTa in Bali, Chris is a busy live DJ.
Chris collaborates with Steve Miller on this new album. Steve Miller is a master producer of quality chill out music and has had more tracks than anyone else on the Café Del Mar album series. His music features on more than 500 other compilations.
Chris Coco will be in Kuala Lumpur on June 9 for the launch of the album in celebration of Marini’s on 57’s Sunset Hours third anniversary and will be on the decks from 7pm onwards. Advanced booking is highly recommended for this launch.
