Here at FreshNewTracks, we love chasing down a good story. Red Vision Records in El Paso, Texas is one of the stories you can’t help but share. Earlier today, I was cruising the interwebs and I came across a story from our friends at Your EDM. The title of the sort was “Serial Song Thief ‘Havirest’ Angers KOAN sound, Asa, SKisM, and EDM Community” The article was fascinating, so I decided to do a little digging. Well, a lot of digging. This is where it gets fun.

In addition to ASA, Koan Sound, and SKisM, our friend Collin McLoughlin was targeted too. Particularly, his “Chasing Ghosts” single from his extremely popular “Tears Of Tempo” EP. Collin tweeted about the trickery moments ago. I say he should be flattered, but it’s pretty shitty behavior to say the least. I decided to track down these ole’ chaps at Red Vision Records in El Paso, Texas. Here’s what I found…


DJ-Set | Ultra Music Festival 2013 Weekend 1 Live Sets

Posted by on March 19, 2013


Ultra always brings some of the best sets from the biggest Djs with a whole host premiers on every stage. Here are the best sets from weekend one that will get you through the week to the second weekend. If you have any requests for more sets, put them in the comments. There were a lot of incomplete sets like Above & Beyond and Tiesto that I did not include, so if you want them just say so, but they are only about 20-30 minutes. Below is Hardwell’s outstanding mainstage set that includes 10 brand new tracks from himself & his label. The rest are after the jump.


Dubstep, Review | Reso – Tangram Remixed (Ft. Koan Sound, Billain, Om Unit, & Doshy)

Posted by on March 12, 2013

Reso - Tangram Remixed (Ft. KOAN Sound, Billain, Om Unit, & Doshy)One of the best remix compilations these artists will ever be a part of. Reso really knew who he wanted to do remixes, and his choices are a great success. Each remix is great on their own. KOAN Sound came in a little differently than they have been, but provided enough glitchy bass to feed a starving country… if people were to be able to ingest bass. Billain dropped a filthy Neuro-hop remix followed by an incredible melodic remix from Om Unit. Though I had made my comments on my favorites previously, the full remix of Doshy’s turned out to be more interesting than imagined. 4 great remixes, it doesn’t get better than that.

Glitch | Mord Fustang – Champloo

Posted by on September 25, 2012

Calling all fans of KOAN Sound and Pretty Lights: this is a must listen. Estonian producer extraordinaire Mord Fustang test drives a new sound in his latest release, “Champloo,” which delivers the funked-out vibe that comes from dropping the tempo to 100 BPM but doesn’t dial down the synthwork. Mord is known for his lush, dazzling soundscapes, and they’re on full display here — and work surprisingly well with that groovy glitch-hop sound. This track definitely has a clear KOAN Sound vibe, but I think that Mord’s distinctive space-disco touch sets it apart from the rest. Overall? Awesome and a must download.

Dubstep | Mojo — Superman EP

Posted by on August 13, 2012

Just released today on Buygore Records, was Mojo’s latest EP titled “Superman EP”. After Mojo’s last hit track Carnival I haven’t heard any distinctive tracks that have been worth while from him, until recently. This EP consists of four tracks each of which are unique in style compared to any tracks we have seen released lately.

Starting off with Superman, this track contains some smooth melodies alongside some distorted, overdriven sounds blended into a great progression. This is one of those tracks where the drop just streams straight through the track instead of blowing your ear drums into pieces. It serves as more of an emotional and easy going listen. In Warmin Up and Trigger Finger Mojo brings out the grimy, vigorous sounds that I could see FuntCase playing out at this shows, which means these tracks are no joke. They are the crowd pleasing tracks on the EP that keep the suspense in the intro and then crush the crowds in the drop. The last track on the EP is The Future, which is a mid-tempo styled track that reminds me of a beefed up version of what we see Culprate and Koan Sound making. Grab the EP on Beatport HERE.

Dubstep | Koan Sound – Akira (Habstrakt Remix)

Posted by on August 7, 2012

Habstrakt coming through today with this outstanding remix to Koan Sound’s Akira. He has had this track finished for a while now, but I guess a combination of not having any release plans and lack of use in his sets led to him giving it away for free. Taking the heavy, bass-filled original and giving it that 8-bit Circus Records spin on it with a touch of heavy Habstrakt. It is usually a hit or miss with this style of dubstep, and this one is a hit.

Dubstep | Florence And The Machine – Cosmic Love (Seven Lions Remix)

Posted by on March 19, 2012

Seven Lions releases an excellent take on Cosmic Love, and is about to embark on his first-ever tour supporting his fellow young dub-superstars Gemini, Koan Sound, and Bassex if you happen to be residing in sunny California on one of these dates.
