They started off with some interesting releases but they quickly turned to quantity over quality.

You guys have started something original to the extreme. Most people I know prefer lyrics in whatever music they listen to. However, Koan has opened an appeal to those instrumental enthusiasts across YouTube. These tunes can be used to relax or even get up and dance in the middle of the living room. I am a devoted Koan fan for life!
