COTCH is a new series of events showcasing a fresh breed of up-and-coming artists, who want to create music outside the box and operate on the edges of genre. The first bash takes place early July and features some of the cities finest new acts. After killing YouTube with some of the illest home-cooked videos, London boy Onoe Caponoe is ready to take the world by storm. He comes by to introduce his first LP Voices from Planet Cattele and performs his mix of afrofuturism, funk, cosmic jazz and UK hip-hop live. Also Shamz Le Roc is a serious one-to-watch artist. Live she blends RnB-inflected hooks with killer bars that steer clear of cliché. For more live action the South London-based troublemakers BRTSH KNIGHTS show up to deliver heavy bass hip-hop out of the ordinary. The only DJ of the night is Blackfoot Phoenix, who is holding down a well-respected NTS show and is well known as a selector who plays sets that fully explore the spectrum sounds both old and new, from across the world.
