KOAN Sound will spend the spring months of 2014 testing exciting new grounds on their very first headlining tour through the U.S. Comprised of Will Weeks and Jim Bastow, KOAN Sound plans to bring their eclectic blend of hypnotic-yet-glitchy take on electronic music to 22 locations across the states. They’ve produced very mellow material in the past, most notably from their successful Sanctuary EP. Their newest EP, Dynasty, brings a grittier evolution of their previous work (with a delicious amount of bass) while still having that signature, therapeutic quality. It demonstrates their desire to experiment with new sounds as well as their dedication to evolving as a duo.


The tour will also give fans an opportunity to experience supporting act Minnesota. A dubstep & bass act out of Santa Cruz, Minnesota combines psychedelic vibes, heavy melodic bass and a touch of hip-hop aesthetic to create rich pulsating digital soundscapes. Minnesota has spent the last year developing his own EPs, including his collaboration with G Jones on the Mile High Club EP, developing an ever growing credibility and garnering attention from leading bass acts such as Bassnectar.
