Editorial Reviews

With his unmistakable sound-mix of Jazz- and Swing samples and electronic music, Parov Stelar has secured his own unique position in the world of music. His upcoming fourth album Coco is eagerly awaited. The double CD starts off where his successful LP s Rough Cuts , Seven And Storm and Shine ended. On the other hand he is consequently developing his established jazzy sound, by adding new stylistic elements to his tunes. Also his dancefloor-productions, that up to now have only been published as singles, find a debut to a greater extent on his album. They meet with Stelar s melancholic-melodious trademark-sound, which is well known from his earlier albums, but now is also spiced up with Hip-Hop beats and synth-pads. Parov Stelar manages to build bridges between his own worlds of sound with these extensive LP as well he as he does with listening- and dance-music in general. An electrifying album to fall for.

The two CDs are originally thought of as one with tracks that can be danced to and one with tracks just for listening. Nevertheless the line between those two approaches becomes blurred in Parov Stelar s newest compositions. The album makes your feet tap more and more with every track. The musician himself sees the whole thing as a book for musical readers which is classically defined in introduction, middle part and end. Because of downloading hit numbers on downloading platforms the listening in to albums and thereby reflecting on less prominent tracks, is lost. Parov Stelar sets Coco as a statement against this habit. Apart from two cooperation-tracks with the saxophone-player from his live-band, Max The Sax, Stelar has cooperated with six singers from different genres. This again gives Coco a characteristic, one and only feeling.

5.0 out of 5 stars Complex. Catchy. Addictive... January 13, 2010
By Josh S.
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
From behind the curtains, Parov Stelar reveals a new masterpiece with Coco. His trademark style seamlessly blends the catchy sounds of 1930s jazz and swing instrumentals with bouncing hip-hop and dance beats. A careful interspersion of funky samples keeps things fresh, while edgy lyrics set the mood just right.

Truly his most complex and colorful work yet, Coco is an addictive audio-feast. Evoking images of 1940s film noir and detective mysteries ("Hurt"), Disc 1 enters familiar territory from previous LPs Rough Cuts and Seven & Storm. The moody instrumentals tell stories almost as emotionally as the sultry and smokey vocals of featured artist, Lilja Bloom (returning from the album, "Shine").

Not featured in his previous LPs, this time around Parov is able to switch gears and shift into two hip-hop tracks. Here the 1930s slide into the passenger seat as melodic background samples, while featured artist, Blaktroniks, takes you on a funky joy ride with "Let's Roll". A few mellow tracks help balance out Disc 1 with a chillout, downtempo pace. "Letoile" takes a minimalist approach with its gentle piano/synthesizer and soft beat, while Max the Sax provides fleeting saxophone riffs that quietly take center stage.

Pumping new life into old jazz, Disc 2 boosts the beats and brightens the horns. Unlike his previous LPs, this is a disc that "can be danced to" as the sticker on the cover amusingly advertises. Upbeat songs, like "The Mojo Radio Gang" and "Catgrooves", keep your hips swinging and your foot tapping. Stelar is much bolder with some the electronic samples this time around too.

5.0 out of 5 stars I really, really like it! July 28, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I first heard of Parov Stelar when I heard the tune Libella Swing used in a YouTube video. Well, I must say that as soon as I heard it, I was hooked. Then, when Christmas rolled around, and my daughter asked what I wanted I immediately pointed her to Coco. I was not disappointed!

This is an excellent 2-CD album, filled with great tunes. Some are real hardcore electro-swing like Libella Swing and some are different. It's really hard to explain, but the music is all quite excellent, and a lot of fun to listen to. Like I said,

Now, I do have one complaint is that is about the tune Matilda. It includes a recording of someone yelling "Come on in here, motherf___ers!" over and over again. (I think it's Al Pacino from the movie Carlito's Way.) This got me into trouble with someone who was riding with me and her small child. The album probably should have an Explicit Lyrics warning.

But, that said, I really do enjoy this album, and have listened to it more times than I can count! I really, really like it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Just Gorgeous April 4, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is a great CD set. There is such a mix of music - something for everyone! Some of the songs have a touch of 'Cirque de Soleil' about them - very whimsical. My whole family love this, from the 8yo to the 48yo.
