Ekko & Sidetrack - Bullet / From Me To You [Cue Recordings]

One of the most notable additions to the bustling Australian music scene, Cue Recordings has quickly become synonymous with the finest bass music. Headed by Tommy Dub, Cue has had a worldwide impact and in two short years has already amassed an impressive back catalogue, with hits such as the 'Reflections EP' and London-based Squash’s 'Divine EP' gaining the Aussie label fans across the globe as well as Radio 1 play and significant appearances in the Beatport charts. Now, Cue Records continues to push above its weight, and hands over the reins to another exciting Australian talent – Ekko & Sidetrack.

Raised in Perth, Australia and formed of brothers Jeff and Jono Hansen, Ekko & Sidetrack only began producing music four years ago. After first experimenting with Ableton, PC Speakers and a Laptop, the brothers have continued to hone their creative vision, and have now found their sound - after moving to a new studio. Pioneering their unique mixture of dancefloor, liquid, future jazz and big bass, the brothers have already supported the likes of compatriots Pendulum and ShockOne, as well as Friction, The Brookes Brothers and Netsky to name just a few. After a slew of releases on labels such as Tongueflap Records, Ekko & Sidetrack are ready to release CUE 006. Featuring the innovative ‘Bullet’ and the chilled sounds of ‘From Me To You’, this is another strong release from a label determined to make its mark.

Ekko & Sidetrack kick things off with the innovative bullet. After a atmospheric, vocal infused build up, ‘Bullet’ launches into a unique Drumstep number. A intricate patchwork of clever harmonies, bass and vocals, Ekko & Sidetrack demonstrate their creative flair, borrowing elements from liquid as well a Dubstep. Featuring ethereal vocals combined with hard hitting drums, and precision bass and synth lines, Bullet is another innovative release from Ekko & Sidetrack.

‘From Me to You’
The second track see’s the exciting production duo take things on an altogether different vibe. Beginning with the rolling drums and yet another soundscape packed with atmosphere, ‘From Me To You’ settles in to a rolling Drum and Bass track. Featuring warm, deep bass, brass full of character and sunshine-soaked vibes throughout, ‘From Me To You’ is yet another banger from the brotherly duo - and an example of their ability in different genres.
