|THE LOW DOWN:
For over 15 years the Echo Beach label group has stood for the best in reggae-flavoured sounds. At Echo Beach, dub has
always been a philosophy, a way of life, with the term "dub" accorded very fluid boundaries. Good examples of how
brilliantly Echo Beach covers the musical bandwidth of the genre are the excellent King Size Dub series and the
Sound of Dub, the latter series featuring a superb collection of dub tracks from different countries,
including the United States, France, South Africa and New Zealand.
The label's versatility and variety is probably best showcased on the album serie Modern Wild Dub - Dread meets Disco
Punk Rocker Downtown and WILD DUB featuring the latest disco punk courtesy of bands like LCD Soundsystem,
Chicken Lips, Playgroup, Radio 4, !!!, Chicks On Speed clash with the oldstyle bands like The Clash, Generation X,
The Ruts, Grace Jones and others.
The latest series, the Echo Beach Discollection, opens up the next chapter, venturing into the field hitherto
referred to as LOUNGE and now possibly threatened by extinction...!! On EBD Vol. 2, the Select Cuts label -
specialists for the best of best - present the ultimate soundtrack for Echo Beach's dream beach. Wherever that
virtual piece of paradise happens to be, this comp ensure that it is showered with the finest tunes. Echo beachlife
is floating wonderfull and lounging softly - ranging from electro lounge to jazzy downbeat, dope muzak to
worldtrade dub clash. The emphasis is on good listening, with Select Cuts effortlessly living up to its name.
Selected classic tunes, friendship tunes - the sound of the Echo Beach discollection vol. 2 is mainly
compiled with acts from Hamburg, Germany and guest artists from Vienna, Paris, London and Toronto.
