Their productions on ‘Shatterproof’ and ‘Skechbook’ span delicate ambient, dub and dark rolling breaks, and with such diverse electronic sounds, I’ve always wondered what keeps Dom, Andy and Mach V from Echaskech ticking along…
For isolatedmix 07, Mach V has stepped up to select a few choice current cuts from the Echa-mp3 player for your delectation and delight. Moving from nu-psyche, through folk, ambient, downtempo, electronica – even dipping it’s toes in to shoegaze - this audio array will hopefully offer you some insight into the diverse musical interests that this group has. There’s even an exclusive Echaskech remix of The Beaufort Scale’s ‘Dreaming in Binary’ – a perfect climax to a stunning mix.
At the moment, things continue apace at Echaskech HQ; as well as busily remixing and writing new material for the summer, they’re working with Roots Manuva on his up coming tour, sorting out the live show for Digital City, 27th March and have just heard that their highly successful residency at Concrete at the Hayward Gallery will resume in July, this year.
Echaskech are currently planning their festival season for 2010 and already have several festival bookings that they’d love to tell you about, but can’t at present… you’ll just have to keep your eyes on their website.
