The Songs of Summer #55: ‘Summer Sun’ by Koop
I don’t often get to the beach in the summertime, but I do get to spend quite a bit of time in a place that’s just as relaxing….the deck. I love nothing more than chilling out on a warm summer evening on the deck, with a cocktail or two and some relaxing music….like this.
‘Summer Sun‘ by Koop (feat. Yukimi Nagano, the lead singer of Swedish band Little Dragon) is just the sort of jazzy, loungey music that’s perfect for deckside entertaining (or dockside, or poolside…any side.)
Koop is Mangus Zingmark and Oscar Simonsson, two Swedish musicians who combine elements of jazz, hip-hop, and various electronic genres to create Koop’s adventurous jazz electronica sounds.
‘Summer Sun‘ is from Koop’s grammy-award winning 2002 album ‘Waltz for Koop’, which featured the pair joining with a number of vocalists, including Yukimi Nagano.
The sun’s setting on a nearly perfect warm, humid July day… Koop‘s got your soundtrack.
