Coby’s recorded work spans the realms of live instrumentation, sample-based productions and experimental music, melding recognisable motifs of hip hop, noise, jazz and grime into a dubbed-out anaesthesia.
Coby Sey is a songwriter, producer, vocalist, multi-instrumentalist and DJ, who, after years spent buzzing around the DIY artist circuitry of South East London, has developed a distinctive presence as an artist and performer.
Coby employs an open-door approach to sharing and making music, which is evident in his long-term collaborations with Mica Levi and Tirzah, as well as with Dean Blunt, TYSON, Laurel Halo and Speakers Corner Quartet, among others. He is also a founding member of London’s CURL collective (with Mica and Brother May), and hosts a long running monthly show on NTS.
His long awaited and critically praised debut album 'Conduit' was released in September 2022 through AD93.
"a bold contortion of its constituent parts, diverse and fresh from the very first confrontational vocal loop to the album’s piano-laden anti-ending" - Loud and Quiet
"deeply thoughtful, passionate and rooted work" - The Wire
