Chris Coco – Top 20 Albums of 2015

MARINI’S-on-57_coverart_200At this time of year we always enjoy asking our friends to look back and put together a end of year selection. Chris Coco has had a busy year of DJ shows around the UK (including Bestival), Ibiza (including Mercury Rising @ Pikes Hotel) and Asia. He also found time to give us 2 of the finest compilations of the Summer. Firstly the excellent Sunset Hours Vol 2 (compiled for Marini’s on 57 in KL Malasia, alongside Afterlife) and the excellent Balearic series that he launched with Jim Breese.Layout 1 (Page 1)

Chris has put together a list of his favourite albums of 2015 and to take things further he’s dedicated the next 2 episodes of his radio show to feature them. You can hear tracks from the albums below on the Melodica Radio Shows on available after 21 and 28 December. We agree with Chris when he suggests “it’s perfect festive listening”.
