Koya: ‘Killing Distance’

Koya has only been around for a couple of years but these four lads from the grime capital of the world, better known as London, have been tearing up the UK dubstep scene with some brutally heavy, boundary-pushing stuff. Made up of Fermi, Pi, Loska and Rutile, the fantastic foursome has diverse backgrounds in electro, metal and even dancehall, so do be expecting a fresher perspective to the usual booming basslines and black melodies.

Their newest cut, ‘Killing Distance’, has been blowing up Beatport lately and with good reason. A creepy intro consisting of muffled warnings from a dystopian authority leading into a monster drop that mixes heavy with techy translates into top-notch stuff.

‘Killing Distance’ is out now on Section 8 Dub. Check it out at www.myspace.com/koyadub.
