Spiritbar is hosting UK electronic music duo KOAN Sound on Wednesday, June 13.

KOAN Sound consists of Will Weeks and Jim Bastow, both hailing from Bristol, UK.

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, synthesizing 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 the likes of 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.

Keep your ears to the ground: KOAN Sound have arrived.

Doors open at 10 p.m. and ticket information is available at the Hume Hotel. For ongoing information about events at Spiritbar follow Spiritbar events on Facebook.
