Koherent represent the diversity of modern drum & bass and, as a production duality with a serious sleekness of style 2020 looks set to be their year. Fellow drum & bass heads who met in Leeds, Josh and Luke decided to fuse their respective solo projects, and their passion for combining ferocious minimality with sumptuous soul was made apparent with an initial single on SGN:LTD in 2017.
