Brooklyn-based producer Kotchy is a singer songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and all round super talented. If you’ve been lucky enough to see him live or performing with NY revered bands like The Epochs, and Violet (w/members of Fischerspooner / Rufus Wainwright / Joan As Police Woman / Polyphonic Spree) then more than likely you’ll already have taken note. Press credited Switch for Kotchy’s Tricky remix but there’s no mistaking those hushed vocals. Now, fresh from working with Yo Majesty (Domino) and Starkey (Planet Mu) he’s primed for the release of his debut longplayer “89”.
Kotchy’s percussive roots shine on “89”, electro-acoustic hybrid productions littered with subtle melodies, harmony’s, straight heat lyrics and cool delivery.“89” is reminiscent of Beck and Prince’s finest hours and smacks of Pharrell’s production. Beats shift from glitched out pop to dubconscious hip-hop.
“She Made it Easy” is the first taste of Kotchy. It’s a 4/4 hybrid of NYC disco and lo-fi emo esq guitar. Glitched and whispered it’s a tale of a girl who entered and left his life, but, somewhat unusually, draws inspiration from the ease of the break as oppose to the pain of it.
The flip on the 7” is ‘Bruce Fleetwood’, a cheeky number that combines ‘The Boss & The Mac’. Subtle production and simple elegance fuse the two, making one sexy love child. This limited edition 7” (500) comes with with artwork from Kotchy’s lifelong buddy & fast rising street artist Joerael Elliott.
The digital bundle contains ‘Falling In Love’. A cool as ice number with beats reminiscent of Flying Lotus and two super powered remixes from Civil stable mates Drums of Death and Reso. Drums of Death’s stock it rising meteorically and his remix shows why, a Kitsch finger clicking disco epic that reworks Kotchy’s hook to great effect. Reso’s remix is a more tekky affair from this up and coming glitch producer, with sounds that lean to Trentmoeller and early acid house riffs.
