Key members of the CoOp collective, each of their broken beat takes on soulful house shines through on this EP. Syncopated beats, joyous melodies and pristine sampling make for two lush cuts that are as multi-purpose as they are multifaceted. ‘Just Flow’ appears on the B-side and is a luxurious jam with uplifting pianos an addictive vocal sample. Additional saxaphone on the track comes from XAS. Check it out below.
