Koan Sound

KOAN Sound is an electronic music production duo from Bristol, United Kingdom. The duo consists of Will Weeks and Jim Bastow.

It’s strange how the death of one musical group can be exactly the sort of catalyst needed to spawn another. KOAN Sound are certainly a highly gifted example of this phenomenon. It was in 2008 that KOAN Sound emerged from the ashes of several other musical endeavours, fusing passion for electronic music with sheer musical intuition. Since then KOAN Sound have continued to develop, synthesising ever more complex and inspirational patterns. And with influences such as The Prodigy, Amon Tobin and Noisia, it’s not hard to see why KOAN Sound productions are synonymous with dark gripping basslines; elegantly mastered and meticulously executed.

Support is nothing but exponential for KOAN Sound. The group’s creative and above all original ethos has granted them well deserved credibility from producers, DJ and music fans alike. These include Aphex Twin, Pendulum, Zane Lowe and Rusko. Armed with a creative diversity second to none, they have set themselves apart from their peers and continue to push music not restrained by tempo or genre, all connected by their trademark ‘KOAN’ sound.

A. Skillz

Record label owner, producer and DJ extraordinaire, A.Skillz’ incredible deck talents fuse funk, soul and hip-hop with D’n'B, dub-step and breaks, all sliced, mashed and cut together with a unique style of scratching and mixing. His reputation as a true party rocker has won him prime-time slots across the world at a ‘who’s who’ of major events.

Adam Mills, aka A Skillz, is a breaks DJ and producer from the U.K. who has spun at parties and festivals across the globe. Across the years, he has combined funk and soul — the backbone of old-school and golden age rap, his primary inspirations — with flashes of drum’n’bass and dubstep. His first release of note was a collaboration with the like-minded Krafty Kuts; in 2002, they issued the freewheeling 12” “Tricka Technology” (featuring Zulu Nation’s T.C. Izlam), and then followed it the next year with an album of the same title. For the next several years, Mills worked predominantly with the 12” format, including over ten releases in the bootleg-oriented Insane Bangers series. He also mixed Freshtraxxx, a compilation of releases from the Finger Lickin’ label that featured his work beside Krafty Kuts, as well as that of Plump DJs, Soul of Man, Drumattic Twins, and Slyde.
