Here is a taste of Steve Cobby's work over the last twenty years.
Steve Cobby - Saudade
His 2014 release Saudade was celebrated by Fila Brazillia fans, DJ's and newcomers. The album is a great example of why he's been doing it for over 20 years. His sound and compositions still remains fresh and relevant. You can buy Steve Cobby's album here:
Review on Test Pressing Blog
Fila Brazillia is the electronica collaboration of Steve Cobby and David McSherry from Kingston upon Hull, Yorkshire in North-East England. They play electronica, ambient, techno, rock, funk and dub, though the music is often described by others as ‘Downtempo’.
After releasing their “Retrospective” album in 2006, Cobby and McSherry quietly placed Fila Brazillia on gardening leave. Currently, McSherry is a lecturer in Audio Production at the University of Lincoln. Cobby went on in late 2006 to form Steel Tiger Records with Sim Lister. Since 2006 the label has produced various digital and CD releases by J*S*T*A*R*S, Peacecorps, The Cutler (with Pork), Chieftain, and Hey,Rube! (with Mal Mallinder).
The Solid Doctor
Let’s get on with the business of Steve Cobby’s major contribution to downtempo funk in this country and leftfield dance music in general. He is one half of Fila Brazillia and one third of Heights of Abraham, which on their own should get him a knighthood.
He’s also The Solid Doctor, his (inevitably) princely solo project of subtle beats and warm, ambient sound space. Sod the sculpted wombic interior of the modern luxury car, the second most comfortable place you’ll have ever been is immersed in the amniotic aural fluids of 'Faustian Bargain’, the ambient breakbeats of 'In The Offing’ or in the sunny electro phonic jazz funk of 'Intranauts’.
