KOAN [Pronounced Ko - Anne]: A puzzling, often paradoxical statement or story, used in Zen Buddhism as an aid to meditation and a means of gaining spiritual awakening.

Their success has been no mystery at all.

KOAN Sound is an electronic music production duo from Bristol, UK. The duo consists of Will Weeks and Jim Bastow. The name is taken from the word kōan. A track from the Max Out EP is titled "One Hand Clap" - a refer
ence to a well-known kōan.

The duo cite bands such as Rage Against the Machine and Incubus as early influences. In 2005 the duo began to explore electronic music through artists such as The Prodigy and Noisia. They initially gained recognition as Dubstep producers, with earlier popular tracks including "Akira".

The duo have since released music on various labels including Inspected and OWSLA, and have worked with a number of other artists, including producer Asa and singer Ed Sheeran.

On 23 May 2011, KOAN Sound released the Max Out EP. The release was seen by many as a turning point in their production, gradually moving away from the dubstep template of their earlier music and displaying a wider range of styles.

On 1 November 2011, the duo released the Funk Blaster EP on Skrillex’s label OWSLA. The EP reached number 1 in the Beatport releases category.

During 2012, KOAN Sound performed across Europe and North America. They supported Skrillex alongside Diplo and others on the "Full Flex Express Tour" in 2012.

On 4 September 2012, The Adventures of Mr. Fox EP was released. The release includes remixes from Reso, Neosignal and Opiuo. A remix of "Introvert" by Vexisle, a duo of KOAN Sound's frequent collaborator Asa and Kursa, was released soon after as a free download.

Evan Chandler aka Slynk had music on the mind from birth. Naturally gifted with a musical ear he flirted with a range of classical instruments including piano, guitar and drums.
In 2004, Slynk received a gift that would inevitably set the wheels in motion. A set of turntables motivated the aspiring DJ, and consequently resulted in an unremitting addiction to vinyl. The two years following, in his hometown Brisbane, Slynk secured a residency in an underground New York inspired café. Here he refined his skills, experimented and educated his peers and fans with mash up productions of classic hip hop, ingrained with rare and funky, rhythmically savvy grooves.
In April 2008 local DJ agencies started showing a zealous interest and in time Slynk was running rampage and shaking rumps throughout Brisbane’s most notorious funky joints. Bedroom DJ no longer, Slynk was fulfilling his destiny as one of Australia’s leading funky breakbeat DJs and producers.

Regular interstate and international gigs reaped overwhelming support and love from the world’s most respected funky breaks vinyl slingers including A Skillz, Krafty Kuts, Featurecast, Mooqee, Fort Knox Five, Freddy Fresh Worldwide, Craig Charles (BBC 6Music) and many more. In 2009 Slynk smashed the Fractal Forest stage at Canada’s biggest breakbeat festival, Shambhala, simultaneously releasing his first three vinyls on respected ghetto funk labels Goodgroove and Manmade. All of which featured in Juno Record’s Best of Breakbeat 2009 list hitting number 1, 12 & 30. 2011 saw Slynk invited back to smash Fractal Forest again, this time opening up for the king of ghetto funk, A Skillz.

Slynk’s reputation stems from his inventory of unreleased and unsigned party style ghetto funk bootlegs, remixes and edits. His work is highly sought after by DJs around the world while his forward momentum knows no boundaries, releasing more tracks with Jalapeno Records Goodgroove, Manmade, Breakbeat Paradise, Roca Records, Bombstrikes and Discocakes.
Recently destroying the snow season dance floors at Perisher NSW and the beautiful beaches of Byron Bay NSW the funky breakbeat prodigy is ready to take on winter in Canada for February & March 2012. With new tunes, collaborations and projects always in the pipelines, you’re guaranteed a fresh show every time.
