If KOAN Sound weren't on your music radar before, they should be now. The Bristol bass music duo are known for some of the most creative drum programming and processing in the business, and their latest work is no exception. With the help of fellow Bristol producer Asa, KOAN Sound have crafted a five-track EP of orchestral midtempo and breaks.

While we've seen the softer side of KOAN Sound and Asa before, Sanctuary strives towards something greater. Somewhere between the organic atmospheres and beatific dream sequences rests an aura of spirituality. The combination of the pristine piano and string work, fluid drum fills, and flawless layering is nothing short of divine.

Sanctuary opens with its title track: a blissful midtempo piece that immediately sets the reverential tone for the rest of the EP. "Starlite" is next, balancing delicate and slow instrumentation over a quick drum `n' bass beat. The piano bridge and drum break that follow are awe-inspiring to say the least. "This Time Around" is the most vocal-driven piece on the EP. Led by the ethereal voice of Koo, the midtempo track takes on a graceful oriental quality. Having instigated an enchanting stupor with the first three tracks, KOAN Sound and Asa pick up the intensity for the remainder of the EP. The fourth track, "Fuego," is highly reminiscent of KOAN Sound's previous work on Funk Blaster and The Adventures of Mr. Fox, though more garage-oriented with the help of Asa. The fifth and final production, "Tetsuo's Redemption," is a thrilling breaks track: exactly what we'd expect from the dark and deviant tendencies of KOAN Sound and Asa. Murky, menacing, and otherworldly, it's easily the heaviest work on the EP.

All in all, Sanctuary EP is a magnificent release.

Sanctuary is a beautiful listen. If you're a fan of KOANs songs Introvert or Wide Open then buy this EP, it's something special. Personal highlight for me would be the track Starlite.

Although this EP is a very different approach to Koan Sound's usual style of music, it is amazing nonetheless. I would happily have paid more for this EP, but I would have also liked it to be a full album as this EP has left me wanting more!

Buy it now. These boys are at the top of their game. That's pretty much all you need to know. Beautiful electronica.
