“Young Echo doesn’t so much blur the lines as explode the idea of genre itself.” – Crack
Very excited to host a two-day takeover from the 12-strong, Bristol-based collective of producers and vocalists, Young Echo.
As a group, extended radio submissions, prolonged studio sessions and notorious club nights make up the cogs of time. Over the course of these years, the network has grown continually, both as one, and with singular, multi-directional paths from each of the 12 artists that make up the Young Echo collective, counting Jabu, Vessel, Kahn, Neek, Ishan Sound, Ossia, Manonmars, Bogues, Rider Shafique, Chester Giles, Sunnun and Jasmine towards the crew, with projects such as Bandulu, FuckPunk, O$VMV$M, Gorgon Sound and ASDA adding to the table in their individual ways.
Detuned soundsystem stylings, love songs swaying in hacked up ambience, skeletal dancehall, microphone technique, dread electronics, outsider pop, Young Echo manifest the outcome of the shapeshifting anarchy which rears its head when no one idea can rule, embracing the diversities when one path must be made up of many.
