Listen & Download: KOAN Sound Pre BASS Camp Mix
5 December 2012
Signed by Skrillex's OWSLA label, KOAN Sound are a glitch-hop production duo from Bristol, UK.
Over the space of their relatively short career the duo have brought forward masses of crunked-up bass to the forefront of EDM's sonically diverse playing field and this original ethos has granted them well deserved credibility from producers, DJ and music fans alike. These include the likes of Aphex Twin, Noisia, Pendulum, Rusko and Amon Tobin just to name a few.
This weekend the cities of Delhi, Mumbai and Pune are set to experience sounds from this mighty duo as part of BASS CAMP Festival.
Dedicated to pushing the most cutting edge sounds from bass music producers the world over it regularly invites some of the worlds most bass-face producers from genres that include drum and bass, dubstep, and glitch-hop to play in venues across the country. This edition is no exception.
"We're looking forward to meeting people contributing to the scene here and making things happen. It sounds like the underground electronic music scene has really blown up in the last couple of years, especially in Mumbai and Delhi, so it will be interesting to see if some of the smaller cities in the country begin to develop scenes of their own." - Koan Sound (Times Of India, Interview)
