Play Cooly for me

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - LISTINGS - JIM CAR­ROLL

MUD Twisted Pep­per, Dublin Tonight 10pm ¤12/¤10 01-8734800 Cooly G’s Playin’ Me was one of last year’s crop of al­bums that got away. Merissa Camp­bell (be­low) is a vo­cal­ist and pro­ducer with some se­ri­ous UK funky cre­den­tials un­der her belt thanks to tracks such as Narst. Playin’ Me was a beau­ti­fully pitched doc­u­ment of in­ner-city ro­mance, soul and quiet domestic dra­mas. Camp­bell’s lan­guid, lovelorn, hazy vo­cals nar­rated th­ese tales against a rich, multi- coloured pal­ette of sounds, from dubby house to r’n’b.

Aside from a live set from Camp­bell, tonight’s Mu­dathon also features Zero T (Shogun), Script (CIA), Nicky Fury, Danny Wong, MC Steo, Boo­gie An Domhain with DJ Baz and Bitch Please. Lau­rent Garnier comes to town (Fri, Dublin); Mr Whippy brings the cream to the wee county (Sat, Drogheda); and Ju­nior Spesh’s Valen­tine’s spe­cial with Rinse FM’s The Heat­wave (Thurs, Dublin)
