Electro-pop duo Coma Coast, made up of London-based singer-DJ Mariano Robles and Venezuelan producer-DJ Rey Morales, are set to release their debut EP 1989/The Ritual, via Parissi La Musique Records next Monday, February 24th.
Having met by chance in Caracas in 2012, the duo were jamming in Rey’s studio until the early hours after bonding over musical influences. However, living on separate continents hasn’t halted the flow of Coma Coast’s creativity, frequently bouncing ideas across the Atlantic and working at their own pace, inspired by their own environments and collaborators.
Both tracks on the EP have been given deluxe treatment by Belgium remixer, ATTAR! Transforming 1989 into a dark, bass-driven affair, ready-made for the dance floor. The Ritual sees Sano deliver a signature rework, packed with Latin acid flair and reminiscent of his previous releases through Comeme Records; whilst Mariano’s vocals are littered with playful lyrics inspired by wanderlust.
2013 saw Coma Coast begin their electronic odyssey, playing DJ sets in festivals and clubs across Europe and South America and spending time honing their trademark sound, whilst 2014 will see the duo release their 3 planned EP’s, ahead of the premiere of their live show in London later on this year. It’s going to be an impressive year.
