Koen
Outputs 3 [album stream]

With such emblematic titles as “986,” “996,” and, how could one forget, “984,” you’d be forgiven for assuming that Koen’s latest release for beat curators Soulection was merely a series of unused beats cobbled together into a release package resembling an album. You would, however, be entirely wrong. As the man says himself: “For this project, I decided to take a different route and make all the tracks from scratch, with a different approach. Inspired by my good friends Duke Hugh and Nangdo, I chose a more up-tempo sound, with a lot of 808 drums.” So we’ve got some jungle, some footwork, and plenty of cropped vocals from rappers. Think of it as a much faster version of this geezer.
