Echo Engine ‘I’ll Be Here’
Experimental ambient/jazz/groove sound-collage.
UK-based Echo Engine are a jazz/ambient/groove/electronica trio formed by keyboardist Daniel Biro, groove-generator Adrian Newton and guitarist Rob Palmer who regularly embark on improvised, exploratory, mind-reading excursions, often inviting special guests to join them on their travels. These live ‘happenings’ are recorded and then carefully edited, mixed and remodelled into new, more composed sound collages. Capturing the moment, then giving it structure. The only requirement: to ‘be here’.
Echo Engine’s influences range from early Weather Report experimentations to ECM-style electronica (Nils Petter Molvaer, etc) to Aphex Twin ambient grooves. But, ultimately, Echo Engine is a unique distillation of the creative personalities involved.
