EchoSlim releases new EP ‘Red, White & Black Music’
The DJ and composer of music known as EchoSlim has released his latest EP record, titled, “Red, White and Black Music.” It is comprised of three original EchoSlim tracks. The album has been released on the Musically Unifying music label. Technically categorized as electronica or dance music, EchoSlim’s latest record combines a broad variety of styles to arrive at a warm and deeply rhythmic album that will appeal to most every music listener.
EchoSlim’s official bio describes him as a “fusion of multiple genres of music embodied in one individual,” and “a DJ / Producer who lives for creating new sounds and performing those creations live.”
Each of these sonic influences is clearly evident in EchoSlim’s music. They dovetail together in a way that sounds both natural and new. Each of the songs on “Red, White and Black Music” exhibits attributes of at least three kinds of music apart from electronica, such as hip hop, reggae, and jazz.
His bio continues: “Growing up listening to House, Reggae, R&B, Soca, Hip-Hop, Funk, and Alternative amongst many other genres, EchoSlim’s main objective is to expose listeners to new forms of music while giving them something that they are already familiar with. Musical enlightenment.”
EchoSlim’s music brings more than mere sound to the table, however. His beats have plenty of space between them for mellow groove and quiet contemplation. It is instrumental hip hop for the thinking person. It soothes.
“My project is intended to spread good vibes,” EchoSlim writes. “I produce my music with the intention to give my listeners a dose of positivity, with some reality, all while giving them something they can nod their head or dance to.”
“Red, White and Black Music” by EchoSlim is available online worldwide beginning 21 January 2014. Get in early.
