What is the sound of one hand clapping? This age old paradox may have just been solved. UK glitch hop newcomers KOAN Sound are coming correct with a fresh new production style that causes neck breaking head bobs and body thrashing. With a wicked swing to their step and negative space synth wobbles these guys make the kind of funk that wipes your mind clean, leaving you in a state of musical zen. Perhaps that’s why they call themselves KOAN Sound.

A Koan is a puzzling, often paradoxical statement or story, used in Zen Buddhism as an aid to meditation and a means of gaining spiritual awakening. Rather than meditate, these UK boys want you to thrash yourself to enlightenment. Be sure to support yet another amazing release on the OWSLA label by picking up their sophomore EP “Funk Blaster” here and catch them on their US tour with fellow young buck Gemini when they rage through a town near you this spring.
