OKO on Breakingtunes
OKO is a project led by guitarist Shane Latimer featuring keyboardist Darragh O’Kelly
(Republic of Loose, Niwel Tsumbu), percussionist Shane O’Donovan (Dublin City Jazz
Orchestra, Isotope) and turntablist DJackulate (North Strand Kontra Band).
The group improvise between skeletal compositions, drawing on a wealth of influences such as
krautrock, vintage TV shows, free jazz, noise, dub, drum ‘n’ bass, dubstep, musak and more.
Their music shifts from lush synth-drenched sculptures to both tight and loose grooves, singing
melodies, robust scratching and liberated soloing.
Their debut album is due for release in 2012 on Diatribe with the assistance of the Arts Council Music Recording Scheme.
