Coco Solid Announces Pacific Rims Album and Collaboration Details

Wednesday 22nd June, 2011 12:14PM

New Zealand genre-hopping artist Coco Solid is due to release her six studio album Pacific Rims and has just announced the eclectic mix of artists who feature on the mix tape.

From the press release:

While mixtapes are often referred to as mash ups of other people’s material, Pacific Rims is a collection of original tracks by Coco Solid, featuring musicians from across the globe. She has hand picked collaborators to create the turbo 28 minute mix, which incorporates elements of hip-hop / electronica / new wave and dance - while still staying true to her trademark rap style.
Solid opens with Disasteradio’s ringtone-inspired synth pop, leading into Jizmatron produced G-funk, some of J.Brown 90’s-inspired hip hop, and Dominican Republic duo Astro Hernandez bring the synths on The Whip.
Coco and Mexican producer Pepepe team up again and add electronic-house to I’ll See You Inside. Solid then builds an 80’s New Wave homage with DJ Jizmatron on their track Architecture and Extravagangsta gives the downbeat feel for Heebyjeebies. Chant-rap anthem G is For Girls teams Coco with Lisbon musician Violet and UK producer Subeena.
Aotearoa trio Unitone Hi-Fi dub-out with Coco on Amateur, and Czech Republic producer Martin Vejvoda provides a smooth backdrop for Coco’s Up In Smoke. Solid then closes the mix with J.Brown’s fun groove Best You Can Do.

There is a limited run of the mix tapes available on the door at Coco Solid's nationwide tour in support of this release, but with every pre-sale purchase HERE to the show a free digital download of the album is available. This is the only way to hear the album before these shows.
