If their group name didn’t tip you off, Cocaine 80s are big fans of that fishscale—and not just when it comes to their powder. As the No I.D.-fronted collective reveal on EP standout Fly Ass Pisces, their ideal woman strongly resembles Ariel from The Little Mermaid. The aforementioned Windy City beatmaker creates an instrumental backdrop befitting a beachside romance, layering mellow guitar riffs and glittering keyboard over a low-key, yet driving rhythm section as house lyricist Common pays tribute to a “fisherman’s daughter” who had him hook, line and sinker from the moment they first met. Def Jam recording artist Jhené Aiko plays the aquatic beauty in question on the record’s chorus. For more, check out Cocaine ‘80s newly-released The Flower of Life EP, available for free streaming and download right here in The DJBooth.
