Our good friends a HI54LOFI Records (who are currently moving from Canada to England) have a new gem by the name of Black Coffee & Stephee Pie. As they point out the positive wonders of the internet means geographical boundaries can be surpassed allowing distant collaborations. In this instance the Spin EP which contains some great dreamy electronic rock is the work of a guy (Black Coffee & Cherry Pie) from France and a girl (Steffaloo) from California.
I started BC&CP nearly 2 years ago now, my first album was fully instrumental, then I started adding some vocals tracks for the second one, but that has been kind of hard for me, and not very natural. So I decided to collaborate with a singer to see what it could bring to my music. I first wrote an e-mail to Steph hoping she’ll be ok to record some vocal tracks for some of my tunes, and she was really glad I wrote her and instantly accepted the collaboration.We first made a try on an instrumental track I had already released before, “Midnight Summerlude” and Steph recorded some really nice vocals, so that turned me very positive and excited about the other tracks we could record.In the further months I sent her a couple of demos, and she recorded vocals for two new songs. And that was it for the EP!
