When it comes to true artistic form, two names that venture far beyond the commercial sounding EDM stamp are Haywyre and KOAN Sound. The Bristol-based duo released an inspired Polychrome LP last December, while the Monstercat favorite is still riding the waves of his two-part Panorama EP series, with Discover and Form landing around the turn of the new year.
Both headlining acts in their right, their sounds couldn’t compliment each other better. Whereas Haywyre takes a predominately key-led approach to glitch-hop, KOAN Sound harkens on liquidity basslines and ethereal melodies in their funk-fueled approach to glitchy bass. That’s why Haywyre and KOAN Sound are a match made in heaven for their new 21-date world tour, dubbed In Parrallel, which the three announced yesterday, much to their fans’ applause.
The joint-headlining tour kicks off in Glasgow in early September, making rounds all across the UK, before heading to the western US and Canada, and ending with stops all over the Midwestern US in October and November.
Tickets are on sale now. More dates to be announced later.
