The Co-operators formed in 2015 basing our approach on that of classic Jamaican studios such as The Black Ark, Channel 1, Harry J's and Studio 1 and we have been working hard to provide a rhythm section for singers and players at Waggle Dance Studios ever since. Taking our influences from the sounds of 60s, 70s and early 80s Jamaica, we have been applying our own twist to this music with the 'use what you got' mantra as the studios foundation stone.
Following the release of our first single ‘Flesheater’ by Beanie & The Co-operators on Woodland Records in 2017 we started the Waggle Dance Records imprint to provide an in house platform to release music from the band and studio. Following the sucess of our first three singles last year we decided to put togeather our first full length album 'Rhythms From the Kitchen Sink'. Showcasing some of our favorite singers and players it features tracks from Kitma, Chloe Laing, Joe Yorke (and The Eastonian Singers), Beanie, Perkie and The Basque Brass Thunder band and is backed by a cast of talented musicians. Recorded and mixed by Eeyun Purkins at Waggle Dance Studios and mastered by the excellent Pressure Mastering.
The albums are available here at a reduced rate of £10 plus P+P relative to your location (details bellow).
Thanks for your support,
Eeyun and all the Waggle Dance Crew.
