Village Voice: Diving into the Vinyl-Only World of Cotter Records

Added on by Brian Coulombe.

So thrilled to have the Village Voice feature us and our latest release. 

Bobbito Garcia, the New York DJ and streetball legend, doesn't like the playlist on his East Village Radio show to be predictable. "I kind of pride myself on the fact that you can never guess what I'm going to play," he says during a recent phone interview.

So how then does Garcia account for the fact that for three consecutive weeks on his show in February and March, he set things off with the same exact record, a jazz cut from an album called Technicolor Hi-Fi by the drummer, bandleader and producer Pat Van Dyke?

There's certainly no personal connection.

"I don't know Pat from a can of paint," Garcia says. "But what I perceive the PVD record to be is a jazz record that's probably produced by someone young enough to be raised on hip-hop."

"There's records that scream at you to play them," he adds. "The PVD record just kind of yells, 'Yo, play me.'"

In Stores Now: John Robinson & PVD "Miles & Trane" b/w "Kiss The Sky" 7-inch vinyl (Cotter/Brick)

Added on by Brian Coulombe.
Transient

Hip Hop veteran John Robinson & PVD have been rocking crowds together at such venues as The Blue Note, NJPAC, & Southpaw for over 3 years. J.R., a veteran of the underground Hip Hop scene has recorded with MF Doom, Danger Mouse, J.Rawls, Scienz of Life, Flying Lotus & many more. PVD's jazz influenced breaks & Robinson's intelligent wordplay have been quickly gaining the respect of audiences young and old.

This release sees the duo putting their talents to wax on a limited edition 45. Both tracks are sure to be praised by true-school hip hoppers and jazz fans alike, not to mention those who appreciate quality, heartfelt music of any genre. The slick, up-tempo "Miles & Trane" leads the way – doing more than just paying homage to two of the greats. On the flip is "Kiss The Sky", which sees JR speaking on what is important ("Who's your inspiration? Who's influential in your life? Have you reflected lately? Kiss your children and your wife") backed with the lovely vocals of Melinda Camille. Enjoy this 45.
