Stream KOAN Sound’s long-awaited ‘Polychrome’ LP
Lovers of underground bass music have a long, rich relationship with KOAN Sound. After a few well-received releases in 2010, the duo from Bristol gained support from the burgeoning OWSLA imprint and went on to be a beloved member of the left-field bass scene. Now, three years since their last release, KOAN Sound have dropped their long-awaited Polychrome LP.
Spanning 11 tracks and nearly an hour of music, KOAN Sound have returned with quite a selection of jazzy, bass-heavy tracks. The lead single, “Chilli Daddy,” is as much slap-bass as it is hard-hitting dub, as the duo seamlessly fuses together sounds from all over the musical spectrum. On their first project since 2015, KOAN Sound prove that they can still be atmospheric and moody while engaging with a variety of electronic sub-genres and tempos.
