Dynasty Ep

Bristol, December 2010. It was a very cold winter. First one in the trip-hop city. I went there because I’ve heard of the vibrant artistic scene. You know, Banksy, Massive Attack, Smith & Mighty, the Pop Group and then Dubstep came out. Before landing there I’ve heard about Joker and Pinch with his 2007 full length Underwater Dancehall. Once there I met some guys in a club and they mentioned me about this two “friends of him”. I googled them and found their Soundcloud page. Since I’ve heard their songs I started loving their music. A colourful mix of funky drops, elastic basslines topped with complex grooves.

Energetic and funky are the words that better describe their music. Songs are vibrant, colourful and groovy. Can’t stop my feet when listening to 7th Dimension or Infinite funk. A little departure from their usual style but I do not regret this change in favour of a much more groovy sound. In “Dynasty” the Koans bring us to the Far East by adding an epic and adventurous mood to the EP with the inclusion of a more familiar bass-driven sound in the middle of the song that could easily be the perfect soundtrack for a Journey into Asia. Last track on the EP is the dreamy-jazz Lost in Thought; a great ending for this beautifully-made EP.

Every release of the duo is always one step forward, every time looking for new directions in sound.  I cannot wait for the duo’s first album hoping for it come soon!
