'Soulacosta' / Close Counters

Nothing beats those funky soul-filled rhythms of the 70’s, as demonstrated by Close Counters' most recent release; a 12-song instrumental mixtape titled ‘Soulacoasta’.


Beat makers Finn Rees and Allan McConnell created this body of work whilst on their gap year travelling throughout Europe.

“Whilst visiting record stores in London, Paris, Berlin and Amsterdam we uncovered some deep cuts of rare 70s groove records, which inspired us to experiment with a more disco-boogie tinged style.

“We created a series of beats built around some samples found on these records and experimented with thematically connecting the songs on the mixtape so that they flow from one to other,” Close Counters said.

'Soulacosta' is available now on Soundcloud and Bandcamp, and the music video for the title track can be viewed below.
