Hailing from South East London, vocalist, DJ and multi-instrumentalist Coby Sey has emerged as a distinctive presence in the exciting intersection between contemporary club, DIY-art, and music production. This prolific performer and producer offers a shifting, disorienting vision of club music. As a long-time collaborator with Mica Levi, Tirzah, Babyfather, Klein and Kwes, Coby’s recorded work spans the realms of live instrumentation, sample-based productions and experimental music, melding recognisable motifs of, amongst others, hip hop, drone, jazz and grime into a dubbed-out anesthesia. Live, these dreamlike compositions are imbued with a heavy, uneasy dancefloor energy, often abetted by intimate live vocals. With his debut solo LP on the way, Coby will be joined by London friends & collaborators to stage his distinctive, open-door approach to music at Rewire 2022.
Coby Sey performs on Saturday 9 April.
