The highly anticipated follow up to Jose Padilla’s Sunset Hours Volume One drops in the city’s highest bar
The lofty Marini’s on 57 will be releasing the follow up to last year’s chill out house music compilation, titled Sunset Hours Vol. Two, compiled by Chris Coco and Steve Miller in conjunction with the bar’s third anniversary. This will be the brand’s second album release in a year, set for global distribution with original track, “Sunset Hours (Marini’s Remix)” on the tracklist.
Hazy Lazy Sound of Summer
Chris Coco has been working as a DJ since the acid house explosion of the late 80s. As the Editor of DJ Magazine, he coined the term ‘Chill Out House’ for the genre, and has worked for BBC Radio 1 on the after hours show, The Blue Room. He has also made artist albums for Warp and Distinctive Records among others.
Besides Marini’s on 57, the prolific DJ and producer has created compilations for Playboy, Ministry of Sound, EMI Classical and Trojan Records. His music has also appeared on many other compilations such as Cafe Del Mar and Hotel Costes.
Laid Back Vibes
With a monthly residency at the noted East London dinner dance Disappearing Dining Club, regular gigs at big festivals including Bestival, Glastonbury and Stop Making Sense and at renown 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 DJ with a packed schedule.
He has collaborated with master producer Steve Miller on the album, an individual who has had more tracks than anyone else on the Café Del Mar album series. Meanwhile, his music appears on over 500 other compilations.
Steve has said that chill out is an open canvas, it can be any tempo, any fusion, that it’s the least conservative and most flexible of modern styles. He has worked with artists like K-Klass, Jose Padilla, Chris Coco, Lenny Ibizarre, Cathy Battistessa, Matt Blank and numerous others.
Catch Coco spinning from 7pm onwards at Marini’s on 9 June 2015, celebrating the official launch of the album alongside the Bar’s Sunset Hours third anniversary. Advance booking is highly recommended for this launch if last year’s event is anything to go by!
