After the deservedly well received debut album Skechbook in 2007 this summer sees the release of Shatterproof - an album of bone shaking electronica. Shatterproof showcases their unique style in which melodic dance beats blend with a spectrum of flavours; warm chord progressions with filthy subs and heavy crunching beats, all strung together with a hypnotising clarity. Expect dynamic and modern, intelligent dance music...
"It's the ability to match the rough with the smooth that makes Shatterproof win through. With a second album on melodic electronica, filthy funk and soaring goosebump raisers under their belts, it could be time that the 'Skechy boys got the credit they're due..." IDJ - 9/10
"This record is sexier than a quiet night in with Megan Fox" Eddy Temple Morris, XFM
“This is where Orbital, Brian Eno, The Radiophonic Workshop, Warp's Artificial Intelligence series from the early '90s and good old tuneful, contemporary, grimy dance music collide, and it proves to be an immersive, enjoyable journey” MUSIC OMH
Experiencing Echaskech play live will change your expectations of what an electronic act can achieve in a performance. With their notoriously impressive visual show they are often compared to electronic heavyweights such as Chemical Brothers, Underworld and Orbital but with nu-skool pivot of dubby electro.
“Echaskech display proficiency very much akin to the likes of Apparat, Ellen Allien, Modeselektor etc. Every track has kicks and bass that roll up and punch you in the stomach with the precision of only the best metaphorical black belts” Drowned In Sound
"One of the albums of the year. Phenomenal. Electronica at its very best - think Orbital meets Jon Hopkins with a bit of Schnauss thrown in for good measure" Ben Mynott (Fluid Nation, Big Chill)
"Twisted contemporary take on Kraftwerk, Brian Eno and even Ulrich Schnauss. Add to that remixes from dubstep hot act Sbtrkt and electro disco rework from Virgil Howe, we have something that needs to be heard. Brought to you from the label that gave us Jon Hopkins, do track down" Pathaan - iDJ
"One thing Echaskech never shy away from is melody, and that approach makes for an engaging and genuinely uplifting experience" Record Reviewer
