Koven had a massive finish to 2014, but have started 2015 with a change in style – they’ve just released a remix of Enter Shikari’s “Anaesthetist”. It’s a very deep and dark song, with the vocals from the original close to screaming early on but soft enough to add to the dark style of the song. The first drop begins as drumstep but progresses into Drum and Bass, and stays that way for the rest of the song. It isn’t a banger that will go off, it doesn’t have catchy vocals, it doesn’t have a catchy hook. It’s just straight up dark DnB. The diversity that Koven is showcasing with this song is also shown in the outro, which is classical and quite beautiful. It shows just how good they are, as it’s quite hard to finish a dark song with something beautiful that still complements the main part of the song. Have a listen.
