Young Echo Sound⤬
An eleven-strong collective of boundary pushing producers, vocalists and sonic provocateurs, whose incursions into dub, bass, drone, grime, noise and techno have sent a fresh charge through the UK musical souterrain.
'Young Echo represent the next step in Bristol’s rich legacy of leftfield, dubwise music' RESIDENT ADVISOR
'Young Echo’s members have already proven themselves to be talented individuals; when they pool their influences and styles as a collective, they draw a musical map of their home city' THE QUIETUS
In 2016 the Young Echo record label was launched, with Rider Shafique’s I-Dentity 12″ as the first release, and 2018 see’s the long awaited follow up to their debut LP, Nexus. Each of the artists has an important part to play, but it is very much about the act of balance, accepting individualism to form a greater whole.
The Young Echo showcases are a chance to jack into the mainline live and direct over the course of a whole night…a loose and loud collision of room-shaking dub, coruscating noise, tampered R&B, incendiary grime and proto-punk 7”s, all delivered with the intense brio and enthusiasm that brought these heads together in the first place.
