Receiving critical acclaim from the likes of Gilles Peterson (BBC Radio 6 Music) and Mixmag for their debut album ‘INWANE’ (2021), ECHT! takes the best of Jonwayne, DJ Rashad, J Dilla, Ivy Lab, Tsuruda and Aphex Twin, resulting in an unrivalled sound. Today they release a new single called ‘Vault-A’.
In a society geared almost exclusively toward the technological, ECHT! forges a different path, one that instead replaces the mechanical with the human. At the heart of their creative process made up of actual skin and bone, the influences of trap, bass music, jazz and hip-hop burst forth through their expert playing of instruments.
First introspective single ‘Vault-A’ is inspired by the feeling of having found something very precious, a kind of treasure. This feeling is sometimes accompanied by nostalgia with the idea that this treasure might disappear. The track is dedicated to the band’s workplace, the VOLTA music space in Brussels.
