Toronto based Co-Op are the talented duo of Oreste Camarra and Karim Sultan. Together they produce innovative improvised takes on deep dubby house and techno. Collectively they find inspiration from their live jams and performances to create polished high-caliber studio recordings. Appearing on Noah Pred’s Thoughtless label last year for their Peace By Piece EP, these two continue to thrive and rise within the Toronto scene and it’s only a matter of time before they are appreciated globally.
Their stellar basic_sounds release, For Real Good, certainly lives up to its name delivering two compositions, which showcase the group’s diverse range of influences. The EP starts off with “A Conversation,” a deep brooding dub techno track with subtle evolving echo percussion builds. Hints of muffled voices combined with soft cymbals slip in and out for an overall hypnotic metallic minimal warmth. The title track is an irresistible slow building melodic house number incorporating piano, organic percussion, claps and uplifting vocals for the ultimate infectious groove. Ideal for the dancefloor or home-listening.
