According to commonly accepted knowledge, a three year old should be able to follow basic directions, sort objects by shape and colour, imitate the actions of adults and playmates, and express a wide range of emotions. Ah well, CO-OP’s always been something of a ‘special’ case.

Hard as it may be to believe, given our sluggish development, we are soon to celebrate our third birthday. The last two have seen the CO-Operative get loud and loose in fine style with our good friend Harri, however we’ve never been content to partake in any laurel sitting and so we’re doing things a bit differently to mark the occasion in 2012.

We’ve only engaged in a single headline show in the last twelve months for one reason or another, but it was a good one – Prosumer in late March. Good because of him, you and them (the venue, the staff, the other DJs et al), so we’re hoping that lightning can indeed strike twice as we host the forthcoming CO-OP birthday party at One22 on Saturday 19th May. The place is appropriately sized, appropriately late licensed and appropriately armed with an A-grade Klipsch sound-system, all of which makes it appropriate for another visit from us lot.

And so to the business of the musicism – amongst the aforementioned ‘lot’ will be a pair of international talents, both of whom will be shaking down exclusively for CO-OP in Sydney on their debut tours of Australia…

SAN SODA (WE PLAY HOUSE / FCL – BERLIN)
———————————–

First up is a young man hailing from Belgium via Berlin – Nicolas Geysens AKA San Soda. Mainstay of the revered We Play House label and one half of production duo FCL with his friend, recording partner and WPH label owner Red D, San Soda’s DJing and production prowess have been in high demand across Europe and beyond over the last few years. Anyone who’s come across any of his mixes will know he effortlessly blends contemporary deep cuts with crate-dug joints from back-in-the-day to present a forward-thinking history of House that presses all the right buttons. With releases and remixes from his San Soda and FCL projects finding homes on leading labels including Freerange, Dessous, Delusions Of Grandeur and 20:20 Vision (who are soon to release the latter’s album), Mr Geysens is on fire in the booth and studio right now.

BILL BREWSTER (DJHISTORY.COM – LONDON)
———————————–

Our second headliner is probably as well known as an author as he is a DJ, having co-scribed a pair of best selling books on the art and form of the disc jockey – Last Night A DJ Saved My Life and How To DJ Properly. Ladies and gentleman, Bill Brewster Esq. Whether he’s removing the roof from a club with his unique selection of deep and devastating ‘Ouse (he was one of Fabric’s first residents don’t you know), enchanting a backroom with a genre-bending set of Disco, Balearic, Rock and Hip Hop or playing perfectly judged chill-out tuneage by a pool in Ibiza, The Brewster is a man for all occasions. Allegedly, what he doesn’t know about DJing isn’t really worth knowing. A bloke of many talents, Bill also runs the highly regarded DJHistory.com website out of the UK, which has become THE go-to online destination for those with definite symptoms of dance music OCD. Likewise, his legendary Low Life parties (now in their 15th year, having started in NYC) continue to deliver substance and spectacle in equal measure every few months in London. Yes, he’s been a label head, yes, he’s produced records, yes, he’s got a family and a dog, but its as a DJ that he continues to inspire and practice what he writes/preaches most regularly and rapturously.

Support on the night will come, in some form, from the CO-OP DJs and possibly a couple of extra guest spinsters, and there may be a pleasant surprise or two still to be revealed for the assembled throng on 19th May if all goes to plan (i.e. we don’t oversleep and can remember our PIN number).

Resident Advisor, unsurprisingly, hold the keys to advance tickets to CO-OP’s third birthday uprising – show them what you’re made of.

Two’s company, three’s a crowd…

CO-OP.
