Yet another great female artist album on Hyperdub,
This review is from: Playin' Me (Audio CD)
What is it about the Hyperdub label - how come they have succeeded in finding so many brilliant female artists in what is - for whatever reason - a male-dominated genre? I don't know myself. First Ikonika, then Inga Copeland (assuming she exists?!) then Laurel Halo and now Cooly G.
"Playin' Me" is an entertaining listen in a Basement Jaxx/Bugz in the Attic kind of way, but with a darker edge.
Track 9 "Trouble"? Yes that IS Coldplay's "Trouble" and very good it is too. No irony, no fuss - just a Coldplay cover on a garage/dupstep LP.
Radio 1Xtra should be caning this - though they (probably) aren't. So you might just have to buy it instead.
