Christopher Coe's performances are dynamic, deep and genre bending. Incorporating extreme frequencies, his trademark dance floor funk that he is renowned for under his alter ego Digital Primate straddles the experimental worlds of sound art and atmosphere.
Dissecting time, pulling apart rhythmic structures and building them up again unexpectedly, Coe's aesthetic is one of chaos and decay underpinned by the deep relentless throb of the ever present but sometimes hidden kick drum. Having produced, collaborated with and performed alongside some of the world's greatest electronic producers and DJs - Mad Professor, Carl Cox, and DJ Krush to name a few, Coe, under the moniker Digital Primate, has DJed in the hallowed dungeons of legendary Berlin club Tresor alongside DJ Rolando, Surgeon and DJ Hell, and had coffee discussing the finer details of minimal music in hushed tones with Mark Ernestus (of Maurizio and Rhythm and Sound fame).
Early Digital Primate techno releases through respected underground labels Pro-Jex and Bush in the early 2000's set him apart as an important producer. Album releases in 2005 and 2009 (mixed by Mad Professor) garnered worldwide respect and led to him working working with Carl Cox, producing hot new up and coming act Metals and performing around the world from Glastonbury to Rainbow Serpent (Australia). His DJ sets are legendary in Melbourne due to his long running night Centriphugal being a staple amongst the electronic music lovers of his home city during the late 90's early 2000's. He is a veteran of the early outdoor party scene in Melbourne, has played at most of the early Earthcore events and many others and has a deep love for the sound of techno in the wild!
Over the last 6 years Coe has been residing in Amsterdam and London and working as a producer between London, Amsterdam and New York. In 2014 he took up residence in Amsterdam where he created and ran the Beatport Amsterdam Studios and worked as a producer alongside the many artists that come through.
His last release for Intec Digital, a collaboration with Reinier Zonneveld and Axan called Solid Block reached the top 10 Beatport charts and has been heavily supported by Carl Cox, Pan Pot, Adam Beyer and many others
In mid 2016 Christopher Coe moved back to the west of Ireland where he focused for 6 months on creating and producing his new album project called MNTNS of SLNC, a deep, emotional techno work inspired entirely by the mountainous landscape of his original homeland.
He now lives back in Melbourne where he has designed and built a studio for Carl Cox with whom he has started a partnership in new label called Awesome Soundwave which focuses exclusively on releasing the music of purely live electronic artists. ASW's first release will be Coe's MNTNS of SLNC. He is also working in collaboration with Carl Cox with the shared goal of keeping the joy and the soul of the dancefloor alive.
