from Dublin

OKO was borne out of a number of collaborations in 2010 and 2011 between guitarist Shane Latimer, keyboardist Darragh  O’Kelly, percussionist  Shane O’Donovan and turntablist DJackulate (Jack McMahon).

The group improvises around skeletal compositions, drawing on a wealth of influences such as krautrock, vintage TV shows, free jazz, noise, dub, drum ‘n’ bass, dubstep, musak, metal and more. Their music shifts from lush synth-drenched sculptures to tight hooks and loose grooves, robust scratching and  liberated improvising.
