Coda prepares to drop his ‘Mister Beat’ EP on Natty Dub Recordings


For those familiar with the legendary Mr. Men series (which also spawned a Little Miss series…) you will no doubt raise a smile at the cheeky artwork. Obviously, Coda somewhat resembles a pink drum with mental fingers but that’s a story for another day. For now, we prepare ourselves for Coda to drop his ‘Mister Beat’ EP.

‘Mister Beat’ follows in a true experimental style with harsh wind instrument chops and a beat so diverse it will have your head twisted up in seconds. Not one for the main room at midnight but indeed a track to drop at the afters for serious damage.

‘Starlight 2001’ provides all the emotions of a vinyl release without the 3-year wait at the pressing plant. Full of ‘96 charm and character, some cheeky Amen breaks in the very welcomed second drop and everything else you would expect from Coda.

‘Last Chance’ certainly isn’t a resignation letter from Natty Dub (we hope!) but a rework of something very spectacular from one of the golden eras of drum & bass. It’s hard to say anymore without something official landing through the letterbox, but feel free to check it out and make your own mind up…

‘B Side Funk’ rewinds the tape deck to brighter times with an abundance of fun and one-foot skanking. Time to reach for the Benson & Hedges Sovereigns (if they still even sell them?), lace up the Reebok Classics and have a little jam. Make sure you listen right to the end too!

Today we prepare ‘Mister Beat’ which you can check out below. The Ep of the same name drops on Friday 24th February via Natty Dub Recordings, you can get yourself a copy here!
