Rising UK talent SOSA’s COCO imprint unleashes the first edition of its Summer Jamz VA series, featuring the label boss alongside Llinares, Mareels, Sacli & The BeatBoy’s.

Steadily growing in stature on the underground scene, SOSA’s COCO imprint continues to roll out a relentless stream of striking subterranean releases full of gritty flavours and roughened edges. Following offerings from Seb Zito, Prok & Fitch, Classmatic and many more, the label returns with their first ever ‘Summer Jamz’ VA.

Llinares kicks things off with ‘Living 4 The Night’, flying straight into rolling analogue-focused grooves. Punchy drum work undulates through a bed of roughened percussive elements, pulsating sub-bass notes and glitchy fills, sliding between a twisted vox arrangement and catchy soulful hook to carve out an undeniably potent peak-time cut.

Label head SOSA follows on with the mesmerising sounds of ‘Novella’. Built around an attention-grabbing flute lead and jittering vox chops, it’s an on-point delivery of the toughened underground sound we’ve come to know and love from increasingly-talented Liverpudlian tastemaker.

The BeatBoy’s come next with ‘Mr. DJ’, delivering more minimal-focused grooves and endless layers of hardware-induced wobble. Rippling drums and resonant frequencies drive the track forwards through a sea of distorted sampling and rhythmic instrumental processing to deliver a uniquely gritty and pleasantly moody dancefloor weapon.

Mareels & Sacli conclude the VA with ‘Bésame Mucho’, keeping things deep and heavy. Riding a subtly bouncing flow of hardened kicks and quirky tonal percs, its skippy hat grooves and stripped-back splashes of melody continue to intensify through the mix into weird and wonderful breakdowns full of striking Latin vocals and huge atmospheric spaces.

We premiere Llinares ‘Living 4 The Night’ on Data Transmission, check it out here and grab the VA on Beatport.
