Renegade Masters: Coco Bryce
With well over two decades of experience as a DJ, producer and label owner under his belt, Coco Bryce can be regarded as a seasoned veteran in the world of uptempo dance music.
After getting his first pair of decks back in 1995 he soon found himself regularly spinning Gabber and UK Breakbeat records at Hardcore events near his home base in the south of the Netherlands. By the late ’90s Coco had taken to producing as well, leading to his first vinyl release in the year 2000.
Ever prolific and never satisfied with sticking to any one formula, his discography contains over a hundred releases, spanning a wide variety of genres and labels, most notably Fresh 86, Lobster Theremin, Critical Music and of course his own imprints Myor, Myor Massiv, Diamond Life, Faces Of Bass and Ill Behaviour.
A more recent development has seen him add yet another activity to his already busy schedule, hosting a monthly show on Peckham, London based internet radio station Balamii. Coco Bryce can be found every second Tuesday of the month, playing his favourite Jungle, Hip Hop and UKG tunes.
We are delighted to welcome Coco Bryce to our Renegade Masters mix series. He’s created a really great mix that is sure to get your weekend off to a great start! The weather’s looking good for the UK this weekend (YAY Bank Holiday!) so if you’re meeting with friends in a park, garden, beach, the banks of a river or wherever it is you go to connect with loved ones and whatever it is you’re doing, make sure you play this and have some fun!

Due to Covid, I haven’t played a single gig in quite a while… the only ‘real’ one I’ve played in the past 14 months was a festival in Klaipeda, Lithuania in the Summer of 2020, which was really nice

I have about 20 releases lined up for this year so far…a couple of solo EPs (and a downtempo album) for Fresh 86, Critical Music, Lobster Theremin, Tekno Sucks, Myor Massiv, UTTU Dance Trax.. and some remixes, for J Kenzo, Brainrays & Quiet, Drumskull, Tim Reaper & Dev Null.. as for gigs: got a bunch of dates across the UK, Membrain Festival in Croatia, Vienna and the Netherlands…
