COTCH release information for their upcoming launch party, set to be hosted at Peckham’s Rye Wax next month.
Set to be the first of many, COTCH is a new night to be hosted at Peckham’s record shop/venue ‘Rye Wax‘, on July 2nd. With a focus on underground artists, the event purports to be “100% dedicated to good vibes and freedom of expression.” Can’t argue with that, and volume 1 of COTCH sees a wide range of artist gracing the bill.
First up is ONOE CAPONOE, a High Focus signee with a cloud-rap style. His most recent release, ‘Voices From Planet Cattele‘, saw him working in tandem with fellow talented Londoner Chemo. Take a listen to ‘Disappearing Jakob‘, my favourite track from the album.
Next we have Shamz Le Roc. Another Londoner, this low-key r’n’b soulstress earnt herself a new set of fans with last month’s ‘Incipio‘ EP. Understated and smoky, her sound is akin to a more enthusiastic Kilo Kish. We’ve not heard much from Shamz yet, but you can bet there’s more in the tank.
Another act building an underground buzz are BRTSH KNIGHTS – you might’ve heard their recent EP ‘Future Relic‘. The trio’s sound is a tough one to explain, the sombre vocals roll over the top of plenty of keyboard work, ending up with a kind of 80s-dance-r’n’b sound that I think will be really interesting to hear live.
Joining the aforementioned 3 is Blackfoot Phoenix, an artist I first heard about through Champ Magazine. Affiliated with Boiler Room, this man’s got a serious reputation about London (take a guess where he’s from) as well as a show on the much respected NTS. Have no doubt that he’ll fit the vibe of the evening perfectly.
Make sure to get there early on July 2nd to avoid disappointment, as the capacity is only 100 people! If you want your name on the list (for free), send an email over to firstname.lastname@example.org
