Futuristic Brussels based four-piece ECHT! are set to release their sophomore album ‘Sink-Along’ on May 5. Receiving critical acclaim from the likes of Gilles Peterson (BBC Radio 6 Music) and Mixmag for their debut release ‘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 ‘Cheesecake’.
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.
The third single “Cheesecake'' is a track that draws the listener into the abyss and takes unexpected paths along the way. The melodies take you into strange and hypnotic depths.
What the band has to say about the track:
"It's not a very long piece, but it's full of different stories and atmospheres. We wanted to have something heavy but using it in a non-linear way and we wanted to surprise ourselves and the listener. It's deep and heavy, but there are developments and twists that you don’t expect.”
