Coby Sey is a vocalist, musician and DJ from South East London who offers a shifting, disorienting vision of club music.
Sey's music – as best evidenced on Whities 010: Transport for Lewisham and River – is reflective of his vast spectrum of influences, yet he remains undeniably uniquely himself; experimenting with live instrumentation and electronic-based productions, melding sounds with introspective lyrics into a dubbed-out anaesthesia.

Coby’s open-door approach to sharing and making music stretches to his work with London collective CURL, founded with Mica Levi and Brother May, who release records and host events with a collaborative, improvisatory approach, as well as a regular slot on NTS which offers a portal into his appealingly murky musical world.
This raw and powerful film shows Coby commanding the entire stage, jumping from instrument to instrument, performing music across his repertoire on keys, electronics, and samplers to create a dreamlike soundscape imbued with a heavy, uneasy dancefloor energy.
The performance will be followed by a Q&A with NTS DJ and radio host Zakia Sewell
Blunted and oblique but riddled with direct, gritty grooves, Whities 010 reveals Coby as an artist who dares to not so much go against the grain, but traverse it in his own way in search of a sound he can call his ownBoomkat
