The complex nature of standout UK beatmakers Koan Sound has influenced many producers since their rise to dominance. Bending the basslines while exploring creative spaces within glitch-hop is precisely what the duo brought for their remix of Australian drum machine pioneer Opiuo's single "Life". The originals funkadelic melodies and R&B / hip-hop styled vocals from Gift Of Gab and Syr are further enhanced by Koan Sounds production, and will have you groovin' to the bass fueled beat throughout.

Alvin Risk and KOAN Sound among a slew of other electronic names have gotten recruited to make some official remixes for the upcoming Halo 4 video game, simliar to when Skrillex got recruited to make his massive Reptile’s Theme for the latest Mortal Kombat video game. Smart move on video game companies to work with these buzzing new names. Alvin Risk took “Nemesis” from the soundtrack and turned it into one of his signature chaotic moombah bombs. It’ll get you moving right from the beginning. Look below for KOAN Sound’s take on the soundtrack as well.
Nemesis (Alvin Risk Remix)
KOAN Sound, who we got the exclusive download of their track “Sly Fox” a few weeks back remixed the track “Green & Blue”, creating quite the opposite of Alvin’s. It’s more of down-tempo funky glitch hop bass track. It still packs the bass, but goes on the slower melodic side. Still incredibly well done, and doesn’t let you get bored. The release of both of these and the entire soundtrack available on October 22nd. Enjoy!
Green & Blue (Koan Sound Remix)
Do you think it’s smart for video games to work with buzzing electronic acts? Do you think these electronic artists are selling out by doing so?
Funky is an understatemen for KOAN Sound, the massive duo from Bristol, UK that have been signed to Skrillex’s OWSLA label. Well the duo we can’t get enough of are dropping their latest EP titled The Adventures of Mr. Fox on OWSLA on September 4th. To hook up our fans we got the exclusive download of the track ‘Sly Fox’ off the EP before it drops. This track is vey funky, has a smooth intro, then packs a punch to that distinct brand of KOAN Sound bass. Turn this up, don’t miss the EP when it drops, enjoy!

Skrillex is going to be embarking on a Canadian train tour and is bringing along some of his friends Diplo, Pretty Lights, Grimes, KOAN Sound, and Tokimonsta. They will be making 6 stops, all by train. As the Full Flex Express travels across Canada, they will all be working on a moving train studio. This idea is revived from the 1970 Express tour which featured Janis Joplin, The Grateful Dead, and The Band across Canada. History should be made.
If you are anywhere close to any of these dates, I would not miss it. And the rest of the world will be counting down the days till we hear what madness they create on the train.
More info and ticket links will be updated here later today
Full Flex Express Tour Dates
07-13 Toronto, Ontario – Fort York
07-14 Ottawa, Ontario – Ottawa Blues Fest
07-15 Montreal, Quebec – Parc Jean Drapeau

Here’s a video recap of Skrillex at Miami Music Week (Ultra Music Festival)
Skrillex’s sound in itself almost sounds remixed. So if there’s a remix of a Skrillex track, it’s got to to sound pretty glitched out, and that’s exactly what I’ve got for you today. It’s a real heavy, super filthy dubstep / glitch remix of Skrillex’s ‘Kill Everybody’ by KOAN Sound Remix. Koan Sound is actually the newest project to be signed to Skrillex’s OWSLA label. The remix is MASSIVE, filled with a ton of glitches, wobbles, and bass. If you dig it, purchase the Funk Blast EP, that just got released. Turn it up, enjoy!
