Cooly G, a semi-pro female footballer and UK house producer and DJ from Brixton, South London, describes her sound as having a “deep house tribal dubstep vibe,” and you can see why – Cooly G’s productions exist in their own hinterland – abstract post-garage beats that slowly shuffle into life, dubbed out, with her own cut up vocal snippets singing painterly half phrases.
She’s the second female producer on Hyperdub alongside Ikonika and she released her debut single for the label, Love Dub b/w Narst, after a string of self-produced CDR-s. The single got people pretty excited; she was single of the week in the Guardian, One to Watch in the Independent, got interviewed all over and was immediately snapped up for remixes by the majors as well as starting to get bookings all over the world.
At times the dance music scene seems to be a male dominated genre, but UK producer Cooly G is a fine representation of females in the game. When it comes to deep house that’s cutting edge and pushing the envelope, her name is one that keeps popping up. Her remix of Zero 7’s “Medicine Man” is a great example of her versatility. Dark and melodic, the track makes a nice weapon, especially with the urgent drum shuffles. Don’t let this be the only Cooly G song you check out, her back catalog is full of many more dance floor kilers like this one.
