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.

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.

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!

Marc "Hildy" review say's it all, i cannot enhance his reveiw anymore than to say it's all true - if this was a single album i would have been more that blown away - put it on the player and let it roll - there is something for everyone, from the sweetest swingin grooves to the more upbeat electronic tracks... i love it, get it now :)~

Have you caught the electro-swing craze yet? While Parov Stelar is by no means new on the scene, Coco marks a distinct departure from his previous albums in that it is primarily focused on upbeat electro-swing. Imagine those old swing songs from the 30's-50's from your grandfather's dusty records collection, sampled, and then mixed into a house beat -- that's Parov Stelar's Coco: 2 discs filled with musical gems that will have you tapping your toes on repeat. What makes this album different than others of its kind is Parov Stelar's experience as a DJ and producer in dance/pop formats (he has released no less than 6 prior albums starting from 2001, and has been DJ'ing since the 90s) that gives his tracks a very easy flow where elements come in and out without being intrusive; you may just go through the whole CD on the first listen without realizing the song changed.

Bought this CD primarily for the cut "Catgroove" and the other electro swing pieces. Stelar could have made this a single, great CD. Instead, in my opinion, there are a lot of throw-away songs...mostly on the first CD. Still enjoyable though.

Parov Stelar's album, Coco, is a true unique gem. Parov Stelar and his band are composed of a sax, a trumpet, a bass and a drum player accompanied by a singer and a DJ (Parov Stelar) successfully creating a meld between, Jazz, Swing and House genres to form an amazing sounding new sound that is becoming increasingly famous in house music capitols of the world such as Berlin.
Coco is able to combine the trance effect of house music with actual dancing found in Jazz and Swing.
Coco's music is not entirely new, you have un-doubtfully heard many of the titles in TV commercials or movies such as "Catgoove" in the Las Vegas Cosmopolitan hotel commercial.
The two CDs that encompass the Coco seem to be divided into two purposes, the first is for the "ears"; it seeks to find the best possible jazzy electro sound.
The second CD is meant for the "body", to drive that instinctual need to move and dance.
The first CD has voluptuous tones best heard in the title "true Romance," mixing electro-pop with sensuality sounds all while keeping the Jazzy tones, thanks to the saxophones.
The second CD is faster paced, with accelerated bass play, which has one goal, to make you jump up and dance. The songs are all based on a Jazz background with somehow a nightclub setting, which induces nothing less than pure euphoria.
This feeling found in both CDs is further heightened by the songs working within each other, in the sense that every title starts where the last one left off.

The creativity of Parov Stelar and his band in Coco is astounding. Coco successfully bridges a great gap in generations between the 1950s, 1960s jazz fans and today' house/electro generation.

This album will thrill all ages and a must have.
