KOAN Sound Joins All-Star Cast For 7-Minute Odyssey, ‘If You Hadn’t’
KOAN Sound, Opiuo, Culprate, Asa - If You Hadn't (Original Mix) [Inspected]

Fans of J Dilla=produced rap tracks, heavy breaks, dub-inspired sounds, and progressive sound design should enjoy If You Hadn’t, the ambitious seven-plus minute production from KOAN Sound, Opiuo, Culprate, and Asa.

This production is ambient and languid, and can actually be broken into classical-style movements, as the quartet of producers each leave their individual marks on the production. KOAN Sound’s (pictured) glitch hop and their frequent collaborator Opiuo’s psychedelic rap-inspired funk combine well with UK-based Asa’s grimy two-step and fellow Brit Culprate’s soulful electro-dub inspirations. This one is an aural journey, and demands an open mind and thorough listen.
