ECHT! is an instrumental, futuristic, Brussels based four-piece inspired by the concepts absorbed in electronic music and musical production. They recently released the debut EP Douf which is out now via Sdban Ultra. Recorded in an empty space in Colfontaine, Hainaut in just three days, ECHT! draw on influences including Electro, Hip-Hop, Psychedelic Groove, Footwork, Trap, Funk and Futuristic Jazz. Check the track “R2-D2“.
“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”.
