Hailed as Cologne’s next big thing from the get-go, and still steadily gaining momentum, Coma’s journey isn’t necessarily easy, – as both producers are more ardent perfectionists than hyped-up egomaniacs. Thus, their first official release took another year before it was finally revealed to a wound-up public in 2008. Back then, their first shows were organized abroad, gently pushing the pair on a trajectory bound for international acclaim, and it’s also since 2008 that they maintained their own studio in Cologne, regularly collaborating with fellow musicians like Roosevelt, Vimes, MIT, or Ada. Whether Coma is on hiatus in their hometown or making a quick stopover while on tour, that’s also how the cameos on Coma’s impending debut album came about, including brilliant guest performances from all of the above.
After a handful of expertly crafted EP’s at Coma’s homebase label Kompakt, and three years of meticulous preparation, “In Technicolor” will finally see the light of day in April 2013. The name already hints at the newly found playfulness on display, or as they put it themselves: “Where our previous releases were kinda mirroring a foggy black and white movie, this is definitely a color film… our attempt at fusing diverse sounds in a more vivid manner, without falling prey to boring club conventions restricting the expressiveness of the music.”
