Good to be LIVE!

Good to be LIVE!

Live in Paris CD – Kid Creole and the Coconuts. Recorded at Le Zenith, Paris, September 10th, 1985.paris cover

 

At the zenith of their career, with the complete original line up of Creoleans, Kid Creole & The Coconuts take the stage in Paris to perform and record one of the hot and unforgettable shows that made them famous. The band loved Europe and Europe loved them right back. You can hear it in the applause and the rebounding energy from the stage. In fact, the band is so tight that they never stop playing and we are pretty sure that the audience never stopped dancing (or smiling). The last beat of every song is also the first beat of the next song and this party is a festive and wild ride. Grab a piece of dance floor and hang on!

NEW ARTIST ON 2C2C MUSIC – Tchengiz

DEBUT SINGLE ‘Right Here’ OUT NOW

tchengiz

Tchengiz is buzzing about the release of his debut single ‘Right Here’ OUT NOW!

Singer/songwriter Tchengiz, 24, from London, has always dreamed of becoming a successful recording artist. From the young age of 8 when his father bought him his first guitar, and he couldn’t put it down, he always knew music would play a huge part in his life. His vocal sound has been compared to Robin Thicke and he is heavily influenced by Chris Brown and Justin Timberlake. He has been playing venues around London for the last few years, with his biggest accomplishment to date playing alongside an array of big name artists for a tribute to the late Amy Winehouse.

Written and produced by Tchengiz himself, the single ‘Right Here’ was mixed by Executive Producer August Darnell of Kid Creole and the Coconuts fame. Darnell, along with his partner Eva Tudor-Jones and Peter Schott (both from the Creolian family) are the co-founders of the indie label 2C2C Music to which Tchengiz is signed. With all their years of experience in the music business and the fresh new talents of Tchengiz, this is sure to be a winning formula.

Along with the single comes a fabulous and cool introductory music video shot by Zoey Henderson in trendy Copenhagen where the single was mixed by engineer Lars Nissen at Moremax Studios. The video was cut and edited by Lewis Knaggs of LSK Films.

‘Right Here’ is available NOW at all major outlets including iTunes, Apple Music and Spotify, you will also find the video on Tchengiz’s YouTube channel.

You Don’t Know Me

You Don’t Know Me – OUT NOW!

Brand new single: You Don’t Know Me OUT NOW!

Available for download at:

iTunes

Apple Music

and available to listen on Spotify, Tidal, Deezer, iHeartRadio and many more digital outlets.


KNOW

 

The new KCC single is called YOU DON’T KNOW ME.  It was written and produced by Tim Vine of Electric Diplomat and August Darnell.

Darnell met Vine in Monte Carlo. Vine had just won a small fortune at the Roulette table. Darnell had just lost a small fortune at the same table. Vine felt sorry for Darnell and offered to buy him a drink. Darnell rebuked the offer, mistaking it for a  gesture of superiority. Darnell’s ego kicked in. He said to Vine: “You don’t know me?” Vine replied, “You don’t know me?”
And so a friendship was born. And a sun-scorched song was created out of the embers of a gambling addiction in the South of France.
Turns out that Vine did not recognize Darnell without his signature mustache and two-toned shoes. Darnell invited Vine to hop aboard the KCC Banana Boat whenever he wasn’t busy with his own band, Electric Diplomat.
The track is hot. Check out what it does to your body. And meanwhile, have a swell summer.
YOU DON’T KNOW ME , on the 2C2C record labelcan be found in all on-line stores. It is the 2nd single from the KCC Album entitled Port D’Arnelle.

Enjoy!

And it’s available on their own label, appropriately called 2C2C (too cool to conga music)!
However, you won’t hear The Kid’s voice on the single. He is so eager to retire and spend more time in his home in Bora Bora, that his latest album is featuring 7 different vocalists that he ‘discovered’ on his travels around the world.
This single features the vocals of Savanna, who just happens to be The Kid’s daughter!
The ReMix, which will be available in late April, was done by Youngr, who just happens to be The Kid’s son.
Nepotism Galore. Hey, that’s a good name for an album. Maybe next year.
This year the new album is called Port D’Arñelle. It was recorded in Copenhagen and it will be available in September.
Meanwhile, we hope you enjoy the single as much as it will enjoy you.

The song features a brand new artist, Savanna, who looks and sounds just gorgeous.

True fact: Savanna is the daughter of August Darnell! True fact!

A little bit a bout Savanna:

Savanna was born in Sheffield, England and is 22 years old. Savanna is a performer who loves music, specialising in R&B and pop.
She is currently in the studio, writing and recording her first EP, which will be released this year!!

She says: “My family…. my Dad is an American musician, I’ve grown up watching him on the stage, watching him made me realise  “This is what I want to do”.  My Mum is  a professional photographer and has stood by me from the beginning . I don’t know what I would of done without them”.

She attended the Midlands Academy of Dance and Drama for 3 years, where she met many inspiring people and made some really good friends. Having graduated last year, went straight on tour throughout the U.K, Europe, China, Egypt + Israel in the stage production of Thriller Live! This was extremely exciting as a live performer and was a great way to start her career.
