CHECK OUT KOSHEEN's New CD "RESIST"
Featuring the single "HIDE YOU"

If youíre a drum & bass fan, thereís a chance you will know of Darren Decoder, Markee Substance and Sian Evans already, what with their debut single ìHide Uî smashing it up on the circuit last year and subsequently voted Best Single at the recent Drum & Bass Awards in the UK. Even if you're not a drum & bass fan, you might also recognize their music. Kosheen are one of the few acts on the dance scene who can claim to have had John Digweed spinning their track to finish his set at Bedrock one week, 5000 ravers singing along to it the next and then have the influential Breakfast Show on BBC Radio 1 vote it single of the week . Or to have found favor with the drum & bass faithful, the breakbeat cognoscenti and the UK Garage pin up boys the Dream Teem in the space of three singles. The secret of the their success? Well, 10 years at the cutting edge of breakbeat culture obviously hasn't hurt, but Kosheen put it down to the timeless attraction of the good old fashioned song.

"We're trying to push our sound and take it into different areas," asserts Markee Substance who makes up one third of the group. "We want to show people how versatile we can be. One of the most positive things so far has been the way people in different scenes have picked up on our records. That's great and the reason it's happening is because we're working with songs. A good song is universal; if you love it you'll love it, no matter what style of music you're into".

Their ability to conjure up drum & bass cuts with a decent tune that can still destroy a dancefloor is one reason why it's worth getting excited about Kosheen and their utterly distinctive sound that has grown from finely tuned studio experiments. Itís the sound of sweet soul and folk melodies mashed up with a decades worth of urban dancefloor to create chillingly beautiful tunes to melt your heart as easily as they move your butt. It's the sound of Kosheen. And itíll be the quintessential sound of 2002.
