Varien swiftly returns into the spotlight again once more as his alter alias, Koinu. Once more exploring the theme of Eastern influences in Western electronic music, his latest offering \”Gainax Bounce\” is a unique track that pairs unexpected melodic instrumentation with a more familiar bass music structure.

With the growing presence of Japanese culture in electronic music, observed in genres like K-pop and in artists\’ snapshots like Porter Robinson, Koinu aims to further engage in this growing trend. Aside from the imagery, Gainax bounce is characterized by unfamiliar instrumentation in the breakdowns and contrasted by heavy hitting bass house style drops. It makes for a unique release in the slew of sounds he has put out as of late.
