since forming in the late 90’s, kosheen have proved that success doesn’t have to come on someone else’s terms. fusing the plaintive, potent vocals of singer sian evans with the darkly intimate electronica of darren decoder and markee substance (aka kosheen djs), kosheen create songs where the sounds tell the story as much as the lyrics while the boundaries of genres are ...

Product Description

About the Artist

Kosheen s founding members of Sian Evans, Darren Decoder and Markee Substance found early success with their first album RESISTan album that sold over three quarters of a million a few years ago .The world agreed that they were something special. Their compelling anthemic track HIDE U reached number 6 in the UK ,while CATCH hit number 15 and HUNGRY number 13. The album RESIST hit number 8 in the UK and made the top 30 in most other territories.Two other albums followed, KOKOPELLI [charted at No.6 in the UK album chart] and DAMAGE both of which performed well but not well enough for the major label and soon the band and record company parted.Since then the band have continued to tour augmenting their line up to a 5 piece and visiting China, Russia, Australia and most European territories as well as the Czech Republic, Poland, Hungary, Romania, Serbia, Latvia and Estonia.In addition the band has formed it s own label and their new album INDEPENDENCE marks the label s first release.The Track SPIES will be the first single and will be heavily promoted at Radio and in the clubs.

This title includes a code for 6 free downloads from the Kosheen website.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning, a return to the old Kosheen 16 Oct 2012
By Hamo
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Absolutely amazing. If you thought they'd lost their way with their last couple of albums, and have been waiting for a return of the production and sounds of the superb Resist album, then the wait is over. This is a grest album, once you start playing it, you won't be able to turn it off, if you're anything like me, you just keep the up the volume higher and higher. But don't take my word for it, buy it and hear for yourself

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow! Loved Damage. This is even better 2 Nov 2012
Format:Audio CD
I have been a big fan of Kosheen consistently throughout their career to date. I like everything they have done. My least favourite album is Kokopelli as the guitars arrived on that album. I am not averse to guitars, but not with my dance and house music. They redeemed themselves with the wonderful "Damage" album which is a great mix of house and dance sounds with pop and trip-hop edge. For me: heaven. I was sad and worried that "Damage" may have been the end of Kosheen as it didn't chart well, unlike the previous two albums. So as you can imagine I am OVER THE MOON that Kosheen have found their "independence."

Its a strong album, sweeping synths with a very dark underbelly, gorgeous and at times ethereal vocals from Sian. The dance rhythms range from pure hard house, breakbeat, drum and bass (mildish) and trip hop and pop. I would say that in a very short time this is going to be better than "Damage" and is already better than "Kokopelli" by miles. I really do think lovers of intelligent dance music, well produced house music and pop with a dance edge will absolutely love it and so I have tagged those phrases in the hope that this album succeeds as it definitely should. Buy it and absorb yourself in it. If they are playing a live set anywhere, as opposed to a DJ set (I am 41 now, lets face it) then I will be taking everyone with me to see them. This album is Excellent.

4.0 out of 5 stars Classic Kosheen 3 Oct 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Only received this CD this morning and been playing it most of the day. This album is mostly the trademark catchy Kosheen, with a couple of duff songs thrown in. You won't be disappointed with this latest offering, I personally think this album is better than Damage. Given this 4 out of 5 due to having one or two rubbish tracks on it

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing 14 Sep 2013
By Harrie
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Better than the previous album (Damage), this album recalls Kosheen's own musical style from the first two albums and connecting to other musical styles, riffs. Independence is the first to be released under Kosheen's own label, but also shows their Independence of the urge to become famous: they make music that they like!

My son is the drummer with Kosheen so I am bound to say that it is indeed brilliant. However, I am also a musician and so, highly critical of the the over-all sound and performance... Read more
