In a society geared almost exclusively toward the technological, ECHT! forges a different path, one that instead replaces
the mechanical with the human.
The Brussels-based quartet call upon their jazz training to serve a number of musical influences, from the vapor of the
constellation ‘Stones Throw’ (J Dilla, Jonwayne, Madlib) to the sound of the galaxy ‘20/20’ (Ivy Lab, Deft).
Since 2017 they have crystallized their innovative style and sound on the Brussels scene. Together with their friends
Commander Spoon, they collaborated with the new generation of belgian rappers for Niveau4XXL at the festival Couleur
Café 2019. A few months later, ECHT! ‘s debut EP ‘DOUF’ was released on the groove-heavy record label Sdban Ultra.
During the strange year of 2020 the band was awarded n°3 by Red Bull Elektropedia in the “Fresh on the scene” category
& ‘DOUF’ got nominated for best EP. They had the opportunity to throw memorable shows at Fifty Session & Les Nuits du Botanique.
‘Echt’ means ‘vrai de vrai’ – ‘true’ or ‘real’ in brusseleir
(Brabantian dialect of Brussels). It is a direct reference to the fact that their sound transmission is ‘real’, performed with
conventional musical instruments as opposed to computer music which the production might suggest. It also relates to the
fact that none of the members of the band are originally from Brussels – bassist Federico Pecoraro is from Italy,
keyboardist Dorian Dumont is from France and drummer Martin Méreau and guitarist Florent Jeunieaux are both from
Mons (Belgium).
