about

Following the acclaimed Koshowko remixes of B(if)tek and Disco Stu featured on ‘Re Cognition: The Clan Analogue Legacy Collection’, the time has come for The Truth In Me, an EP of all-new Koshowko material. Recorded upon Koshowko’s return from touring Germany, The Truth In Me combines melancholia and opulence, with lush synthetic soundscapes, infectious melodies and polished nu-disco grooves.

The Truth In Me EP explores the transitoriness of existence and the search for meaning by melding the in-the-moment philosophy of dance music with timeless musical values of melody, harmony and structure. The EP opens with epic synths and haunting vocoders on the ‘Down On your Knees’ edit of the title track. Next we hear a new remix of ‘Switched On’, initially produced by Koshowko for the critically acclaimed collaboration with Winduptoys on their 2006 album Double Exposure and now remixed by Philosophy Of Sound with added existentialist dancefloor intensity. ‘Lose What We Have’ touches on the transient aspect of life with a fatalistic abstract hip-hop groove. ‘Promise - Part 3’ update the classic Koshowko dub track with lyrics inspired by Leonard Cohen’s poem ‘Democracy’. The EP closes with a nu-disco mix of ‘The Truth In Me’.

The EP has been enthusiastically received by the Australian radio with airplay on Triple J and variety of national community radio stations. An example of the track handpicked by DJs from the release is ‘Promise – Part 3’, which has spent several weeks in the top 10 of the Kiss FM (Melbourne's leading dance music radio station) Chart, where it reached number 2.

The strong visual aspect of Koshowko music is also represented on this release – with video clips to ‘Switched On (Philosophy Of Sound Remix)’ and ‘Lose What We Have’ available on KOshowKO’s YouTube channel.

Track Name: Lose What We Have
I.
Sometimes I ask myself what’s real
And the books
They answer this question
The answers, they always get forgotten
And the pain
The pain remains the same

Those answers, however
Always get forgotten
And the pain remains the same

II.
Sometimes in a moment of thrill
I think things are as they used to be
But the reality gets resurrected somehow
And the pain
The pain remains the same
The pain remains the same

III.
And what I also know is
That everything is dying
And in the rush of living
No matter who we are
We will lose what we have

No matter who we are
We will lose what we have

Track Name: Promise - Part 3
There are wars
That Bring The Order
Where The Fools
Still go to play
And the masses
Keep on dreaming
That They Still
Can Disobey
Their confusion
Is a promise
Of the things
to stay

So promise me forever
There will never be a never
