Koop Waltz For Koop-Alternative Takes
- Words: Jennifer Marston
- Label: Palm Pictures
Alternative Takes: a piece of remixology genius or Koop's attempts to transform an originally flaccid album into something with more character? The jury is out, but one thing is clear: Swedish duo Oscar Simonsson and Magnus Zingmark aren't about to be shoved into a box labeled "nu-jazz" on the basis of this compilation. It's full of dancefloor variety; for example, the pacifying strings and vocals of "Tonight" hit ears just a few minutes before DJ Patife served up a floor-pounding drum & bass rendition of the title track. Genius or not, Koop definitely serves up a slice of the musical pie for everyone.
