KOAN [Pronounced Ko – Anne]: a paradox to be meditated upon that is used to train Zen Buddhist monks to abandon ultimate dependence on reason and to force them into gaining sudden intuitive enlightenment.
Young and vivacious are two boys from Bristol, UK who are serving enlightenment on a dish. This dish is their debut EP on Skrillex’s OWSLA label. Breaking boundaries and forging new styles, these new sounds is certainly giving other artist something to meditate with.
Koan Sound will be in Toronto next Wednesday November 9 at Wrongbar for Bassmentality.

    I dunno mang, I liked the first track ok but then the next four were the exact same shit.

    Good stuff although I agree that it is a little repetitive. Just so u know, I think all the names of the tracks are mixed up e.g. the edge is actually talk box etc.

    Ya, the titling error is fixed. Beatport at fault, not me. lol.

    And yes, i do somewhat agree, the tracks all do have a resemblance. Although i find it a unique one. Koan’s sound – literally – is something different. Its safe to say their young, very young and their production level is far ahead of most. Im sure as they grow more mature so will there productions.

    haha i was gonna say “i dunno mang” too but buddy up in front beat me too it.

    i definitely feel the same way, because these tracks aren’t the Koan Sound i know and love. i definitely applaud going down a unique route and doing something different, but to be honest, it’s kind of boring and all the songs have very similar patterns.

    but whatever, these tunes might just be one of those “you need to hear it at least 10 times before it sounds good”
