8th July Green Man Forever - Live
Film Friends Forever are getting together with Green Man Music Festival to present a special evening of live music and film performances from Echaskech (Just Music), and Neotropic (Ninja Tune, Mush Recordings)
We are also offering you an exclusive chance to become a part of Echaskech’s A/V performance and have your film / visuals performed on the night over two of their new tracks.
EchaskechDesribed as the 'The best hypnotic technotronica since the demise of Orbital', Echaskech have a unique style of melodic dance beats blending a spectrum of flavours; warm chord progressions with filthy subs and heavy crunching beats, all strung together within a seamlessly building set that is seductive and uplifting to the point of air punching euphoria. After the amazingly well received debut album 'Skechbook' in 2007 this summer sees the release of 'Shatterproof' an album of bone shaking electronica, and although these guys are relatively new on the scene, if you get the chance to see them live, this might be your last chance to catch them as 'unknowns'.
Visual SaladEchaskech need you, and your talents to help put together this show. We are looking for creative visual ideas in a finished form that can be 'performed' on the night over 2 of their new, especially selected tunes. Perhaps you already have something that might work, or an idea that still needs realising but if you are interested in getting involved and submitting then click here to find out more.
