It's rare that a demo comes across the desk at Coco HQ that we instantly latch on to. Most days are spent searching for or working with our stable of artists to twist and re-shape the face of what is already in motion. This day was different, a cool fall day after a "Thatch" party when the Land Shark was in town and this demo hit the CD player. I saw the Shark's dorsal fin start to wiggle a bit and new we had something here. A copy of the CD went back on the boat to San Francisco and within the week we had settled on a track selection. "Story Time with Carlton Banks" definitely deviates from most previous Coco Machete releases, but deviance is what we're really all about. Coming out the gates Carlton delivers four strikingly different selections ranging from electro fueled bangers to the lushest depths of techno. With ultimate variety and tempos this release may never leave your box. This release also marks the introduction of the Land Shark to our A&R team seeking out new joints and fresh cuts. Be on the lookout, peel your ears.
