FUR COAT (Venezuela)
Though you may think that Fur Coat is a new on the scene, the reality is quite different. Even before the Venezuelan pair met at a house party in Caracas in 2004, Israel Sunshine was building a solid reputation as a DJ, and Sergio Munoz was successfully producing his own sounds (under the Delete alias) for a number of different labels.
Through a mutual appreciation of food, movies, partying and each others work, this expressive pair soon became close friends, cementing the relationship with shared musical passions and electronic influences like Giorgio Morodor, Larry Levan and Moodymann. In the summer of 2010, they began DJing together locally and even picked up gigs across Europe, South American and Ibiza -- it was the start of Fur Coat proper.
Fast forward one year and one of the smartest A&R's in the business, Damian Lazarus, plucked them from obscurity and provided a platform on his much-lauded Crosstown Rebels label. It was the duo's blending of live vocals, serious grooves and a heavily funk indebted sound which had Lazarus snap them up. "Space Ballad", their first release for the label shot to prominence thanks to a Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs remix. Reactions to its swirling future funk were crazy, so much so that Fur Coat's 2012 single ‚"You and I" struck a chord with fans as diverse as Ewan Pearson and Art Department quick to play it out around the world.
