MR. FINGERS, Felix Da Housecat and Vitalic.
Our 68th exclusive FACT mix is the work of Piers Martin and Rodaidh McDonald, the brains behind Cocadisco.
Founded in 2003, Cocadisco has become a bit of an institution, bringing some of the world’s best italo DJs to London and providing a platform for the likes of Aphex Twin, Richard X, Russell Haswell and Erol Alkan to spin the "fruitier, stranger" records from their collections. Tonight, Friday 24 July, Cocadisco commandeers Corsica Studios for an all-night party headlined by Vitalic, and also featuring DJ sets from The Horrors and Mark Moore. More information on that party, not to mention the larger story behind Cocadisco, in the Q&A below.
No tracklist for this one folks – see our interview with Piers below for the reasons why – but the keen-eared will likely spot synth-driven contributions from Klaus Schulze, Vitalic and Mr Fingers. Enjoy…
