SubSound presents KOAN Sound at Camp and Furnace Liverpool

Fresh from their involvement with the massive Baltic Block Party in May, SubSound are back for the autumn season with their most exciting line­ups to date. Saturday 18 October see's them playing host at an exciting new venue, Haus @ Camp and Furnace,to the legendary Bristolian purveyors of glitch­hop and crunked up bass: KOAN Sound.

It’s strange how the end 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's development has been astronomical, 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 and releases are synonymous with dark gripping basslines, elegantly mastered and meticulously executed. Very much evident in their current mind blowing Dynasty EP.

KOAN Sound's creative and above all original ethos has granted them well deserved credibility from producers, DJ and music fans around the globe. Armed with a creative diversity second to none, they have set themselves apart from their peers and continue to push music boundaries not restrained by tempo or genre, all connected by their trademark ‘KOAN’ sound Backing up KOAN Sound are a whole host of local hero's. First up is William Breakspear a British bass music producer who blends bass aggression with funky nuskool drums and glitchy samples to create a unique yet familiar sound. He started writing and producing with an Atari ST and Akai S950 at the age of 16, using his parent’s record collection of Rock, Soul and Reggae as inspiration. Breakspear established the brilliant Skanky Panky Records alongside Buddha from SixAM and has released a slew of successful bootlegs,original tracks and official remixes.

Starting as a DnB DJ at the tender age of 15, Horza quickly fell in love with all forms of bass music from across the world. Horza's eclectic sets have earned him slots across the UK including a spot at Outlook Festival. His stand out trademark sound is from his unwillingness to stick to a one­genre set but keeping his style purely party vibes.

A familiar face to anybody who has been to Django’s Riff on a Saturday for as long as we can remember. Co­owner of Glitch Hop label Skanky Panky Records and all round nice guy, Buddha promises to bring a huge bag of floor shakin Glitch Hop to close this night off in fine style.

With a line up that crosses over between dubstep, glitch­hop, drum n bass and everything in­between expect this to be a blistering bass music jamboree.
