Biography

Auckland, New Zealand (2003 – present)

Jessica Hansell (born December 23, 1979 in Auckland, New Zealand) is a New Zealand independent electro-rapper, singer, producer and half of the electronica hip hop duo Parallel Dance Ensemble. She released her debut album Rock N Roll in 2003 and has since released 2004’s Denim & Leather, 2005’s Erik Ultimate presents Denim & Leisure, 2006’s Gentlemen Prefer Bombz and 2008’s The Radical Bad Attack. Coco Solid received the APRA Professional Development Award for song-writing in March 2009 and New York rapper Princess Superstar has sampled Coco’s song Denim & Leather in her song Monday Morning.

Coco Solid is the New Zealand underground electro-rapper who’s seducing and shaking live crowds worldwide with her psychedelic raps, cut-throat style and lo-fi beats. The sound: a bossy 80’s electro rap, mixing a tough voice with a trademark wit.

“like Peaches, but its far more clever and has a cheeky exuberance that most hip-hop of any flavour lacks. This shit is cool.” - Austin Chronicle

“like any truly original record, Denim & Leather rewards with multiple listens and gradually gets under your skin. This is hip-hop with a difference and its kicking” - TNT

“Smart as Stephen Hawking, sexy as Brigitte Bardot, full of monster techno riffs and truly seismic bass it’s the most exciting local album I’ve heard all year, and the funniest.” - Grant Smithies, Sunday Star Times (NZ)

Princess Superstar has paid homage to COCO SOLID by covering a hook in recently released Monday Morning single
