More about the acts:
Echaskech are a London based electronic act composing emotive, melodic and powerful music. Echaskech are: Andy Gillham, Dom Hoare, Mach V (Visuals).
Their sound is derived from numerous influences ranging across techno, dubstep, IDM, acid crunk and drum and bass. Signed to Just Music alongside diverse acts such as Jon Hopkins, Leo Abrahams and Dan Arborise, they present a unique take on electronic music with warm chord progressions, low end sub bass and cheeky melodies combining to form an accessible yet original style of production.
“Echaskech display proficiency very much akin to the likes of Apparat, Ellen Allien, Modeselektor" - Drowned in Sound.
They have collaborated with and remixed numerous acts including Roots Manuva, James Yuill, Max Cooper, Kraddy, Posthuman and SBTRKT with festival performances at Glade, Blissfields, Secret Garden Party, Solfest, Deershed, Big Chill and Festinho to name but a few. Earlier this year, they performed at a Just Music Cafe showcase at Palac Akropolis in Prague, alongside labelmates Digitonal and Marconi Union.
Their previous two albums Skechbook (Just Music 2007) and Shatterproof (Just Music 2009) are essential record collection must haves and have received much praise from the music press. On Shatterproof:
"This is an album of original material superbly executed and guaranteed to appeal."
5/5 - Utterly Fantastic! - I-DJ Magazine
"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)
Currently working on their third album, Echaskech are lining up a further delivery of heavy crunking bass and melody led electronics. Expect great things at their Ginglik gig. As well as previewing new material from their third album, Echaskech have a few great surprises up their sleeves. Not to be missed!
Subeena is the name by which London-based artist Sabina Plamenova gives vent to her soulful, intensely engaging experiments in electronic music.
Initially linked with the Dubstep scene, Subeena’s music quickly outgrew this category, combining elements of other genres as it evolved with a subtlety and intelligence that revealed her passion for complexity and experimentation, though still with a keen ear for the dancefloor. Her music is undeniably unique, almost alien in feeling, while remaining firmly listenable. Her tracks seem to contain a blend of different influences that is difficult to unpick into its individual ingredients - perhaps a result of the 24-year-old’s frequent relocations, from Turin, to Berlin, before finally coming to rest in the UK’s capital – itself an important meeting-point for sound and culture.
Her tracks have been played numerous times by the internationally renowned trendsetter Mary Anne Hobbs, on her weekly BBC Radio 1 show presenting experimental electronic music, recognised as playing an important part in the massive growth of Dubstep at the beginning of 2006. Mary Anne also devoted a part of her special one-off female producer showcase to Subeena, along with other musical innovators such as Cooly G and Ikonika, who have recently been receiving considerable media attention.
Subeena recently peformed as part of `Nick Luscombe Presents...' at Spitalfields Music Summer Festival night at Village Underground. She left us so transfixed that we just had to invite her back to perform another outstanding set at our next night!
Nick Luscombe Respected from all corners of the music world, Nick Luscombe is one of the UK’s most exciting and influential radio and club DJs. Always one step ahead at the cutting edge of the new music scene, he is highly regarded and constantly in demand in clubs and at festivals throughout London, Europe and Japan. Nick is a presenter of `Late Junction’, the Sony award winning thrice weekly radio show on BBC Radio 3. Nick Luscombe’s unblinking belief in new, forward-thinking music has constantly won him new fans.
Nick Luscombe's trademark sets represent a feast of musical styles, each a one-off and tailor made for the night. His eclectic deep club sounds blend deep and minimal house with electronica, broken beat, jazz, dubstep, techno, soul, disco and hip hop and even a few Brazilian classics.
See you at Ginglik on 3rd September!
