Coco on Wax

4.10 pm Coco on Wax

Vinyl is not dead! In an era of file trading and music-on-tap, the humble record has retained its boutique value, holding its own as a collector's item as much as a music medium. In 'Coco on Wax', vinyl virgin Coco Solid and RNZ reporter Sam Wicks cross the ditch to watch Coco's lo-fi chutzpah-heavy rhymes pressed to wax - a 12" slab of shocking pink vinyl, no less - at record pressing plant Vinyl Factory, in Australia. Then they hoof it back to Auckland with the fresh batch for a release show at Coco's Bar.

And Nick takes a listen to the new, dance floor oriented record from SJD.
