New Music: Experimental Futuristic Four-Piece Brussels based Group, ECHT! Announce New Single + Album Release Date

Echt! Presse 1

We’ve seen so much creativity in music coming out of Brussels in Jazz, with musicians such as Compro Oro and Azmari, but ECHT! have carved their own style and sound within Brussels electronic music scene.

The group of visionary music makers are pleased to announce the release of their debut EP ‘DOUF’, released 29th November via groove-heavy record label Sdban Ultra.

Speaking on the release the group mentioned,“R2-D2 is the fruit of a night jam. We found that kind of sampled piano riff combined with space-full yet heavy hip-hop groove. We wanted to add some of our weirdest, most futuristic sounds (the name ‘R2-D2’ refers to one of those) and a robotic gimmick emerged. Then we alternated this part with a frenetic, condensed flow growing more and more to finally submerge you. This tune reflects our approach: we try to integrate the inhuman heritage of electronic music and “re-humanize” it in an instrumental performance”.

Have a listen to the single below, and let us know what you think:
