Koop

Magnus Zingmark and Oscar Simonsson are responsible for the groundbreaking music that appears under the name Koop. Inspired mainly by jazz musicians, but also learning from the work of hip-hop and dance artists, Zingmark and Simonsson formed the group in the midst of the fertile Swedish jazz scene. After meeting in Uppsala, the pair moved to Stockholm and began working with a series of collaborators, releasing their debut full-length in 1997. Sons of Koop inaugurated a new sound for Swedish jazz and gained the recognition of fellow European jazz/electronica fusion figures Jazzanova and Kruder & Dorfmeister. In 2001, the group delivered Waltz for Koop, an album that validated their exploratory style and borrowed the talents of two female vocalists, Cecilia Stalin and Yukimi Nagano. Following its release of Waltz for Koop, Compost released singles for "Summer Sun" and "Bright Nights," both featuring remixes. The remix album Waltz for Koop: Alternative Takes followed in late 2003, although their proper follow-up, Koop Islands, wasn't released until 2007. ~ Mario Mesquita Borges

I plan to DJ a few of these songs at a social dance, they're perfect for swing.

This is by far one of my favorite albums. Each song is unique & beautiful. The sound just takes you to another level. I hope they will someday soon release another disc.

First heard Koop Island Blues on SYTYCD and found it infectious! The dance number it was paired with blew me away as well. An unusual sound, indeed!

My son had their cd and played it in my car while we were driving. Since then I have loved their music as I have never heard of them before that. My son being a young man of 19 years in the 21st century has such good taste in music. A child definitely born in the wrong era or just a child with good taste I should say. Love my son and his talent and taste for music.

I first heard Koop on So You Think You Can Dance. It was for a number choreographe d by Mia Michaels called the butt dance. The piece was sooooooo much fun, music and dance. I finally got a copy of the song Koop Island Blues recently and still think it is a bunch of fun. Jazzy, sexy, and fun. Try it, you might like it.
