Check Out a Mix from Bristol's Young Echo Collective
- Words: Brad Stabler
First spotlighted in our January Bubblin' Up feature on the new crop of Bristol heads, the Young Echo collective—consisting of Vessel, Kahn, El Kid, Zhud, and others—irregularly gathers around the boards to broadcast a haphazard, club-repellant internet radio show, complete with left-field cuts, sound malfunctions, and a loose flow. That same approach applies to the new mix which the group of artists dropped today. While the second half of Young Echo's podcast for FACT steers towards grime and trip-hop, it starts out showing off the odd ends of the collective's music taste—including long ambient and orchestral stretches interspersed with off-kilter beats and spoken word. Young Echo's debut LP Nexus is out this week via RAMP, and the Bristolian outfit's mix can be streamed and downloaded here.
