British dubstep group KOAN Sound is releasing their next EP, Funk Blaster, on Skrillex's new label, OWSLA, on November 1st. Their latest track, "Meanwhile, In The Future" has a space-age, electronic synth-groove throughout. KOAN Sound's Jim Bastow explains, "The idea for the track was to make a Seventies funky beat fast forward into the future. Instead of the slap bass carrying all the groove, it's the synths, so a lot of time went into making the basslines as tight and punchy as possible." KOAN Sound's Funk Blaster EP will be released on November 1st, but you can stream "Meanwhile, In The Future" for free here.

“You Oughta Know”

Alanis Morissette | 1995

This blunt, bitter breakup song -- famous for its line "Would she go down on you in a theater?" -- was long rumored to be about Alanis Morissette getting dumped by Full House actor Dave Coulier. But while she never confirmed it was about him (Coulier himself says it is, however), she insisted the song wasn't all about scorn. "By no means is this record just a sexual, angry record," she told Rolling Stone. "The song wasn't written for the sake of revenge. It was written for the sake of release. I'm actually a pretty rational, calm person."
