Cooly G aka Merissa Campbell, is a South Londoner who produces, sings and DJ’s and who has released on Hyperdub Records for the last 5 years.
Cooly’s music exists in it’s own hinterland, her two highly lauded album releases, ‘ Playin Me’, recorded without any frills in her home studio, recall a legacy of black British music, filtering the female pressure and reggae lilt of Lovers Rock’s kitchen sink dramas, the sweet seduction of 80’s Quiet Storm, through to bitter-sweet synths, polyrhythmic dub decay of early jungle and tough tribal drums.
Her productions have garnered support from DJ’s such as Annie Mac and Benji B as well as big names on the DJ Circuit. Along the way she’s remixed a wide number of names from Neneh Cherry, the Knife, Kei$ha, Speech Debelle, and Zero 7.
Recently Cooly has set about creating work to contribute to 4 new works to be released via Hyperdub (Home to Burial) and Rinse FM. Cooly also has contributed her knowledge and experience to a panel discussion on the dance music industry at The Brighton Music Conference.
