Bass legends at their finest. KOAN Sound get their name from a Buddhist storytelling tradition, by which people are led to enlightenment by studying obscure and often contradictory narratives. However, their music is anything but obscure, with gregarious basslines that grab you by the face and send you tumbling down to the earth below. Case in point: the Forgotten Myths EP. Some of the finest glitch hop, drumstep, and drum and bass that you’ll find, and you can grab it at your own price via bandcamp. And, this EP also shows the duo at their finest when it comes to lush atmospheres, with two fine meditative tracks thrown in for good measure. Check it out below.
Daft Punk’s Alive 2007 introduced me to the world of electronic music, and ever since, it’s been a huge part of my life. I’m currently a philosophy student at UCSB, but music and shows are my passion. Thanks to EJ, I hope to share the magic of music with anyone interested.
