Equal Echo, the new project of producer / DJ Hector Plimmer and singer-songwriter / instrumentalist Alexa Harley, are poised to release their debut EP with the arrival of ‘Dynamite’ this summer.

Already acclaimed in their own right with their personal projects, the electronic soul tinged 4-track EP reveals the multi-facetted duo in perfect union that initially brought about the birth of Equal Echo.

Tracklist: 1. Dynamite 2. Pandora 3. Black & Blue 4. Carousel

Dynamite hints at the past work of both artists whilst retaining an altogether fresh and unique outlook. Taking Hector’s flair with synthesizers and rich instrumentation, combined with Alexa’s experimental take on chord progressions and her soulful, composed vocal delivery, together they share a love for jazz, soul, house and pop soundscapes, to create an impressive, expansive and emotive sound.

Alexa details the track ‘Black & Blue’: “’Black and Blue’ was written out of necessity – it expresses the emotions one goes through when experiencing a deep regret, but also addresses a universal human need of wanting to be loved and accepted for who we are”.

For the last two years, Harley & Hector have been meeting two days a week, almost every week, creating music that shares an equal input of musical ideas from one another. The amalgamation of styles & musical backgrounds blend together to make a sound unlike either Harley or Hector produce alone, whilst still retaining the best attributes from both. Not only are they musical partners, they are also best friends.

Two glistening EPs (mixed and mastered by Albert’s Favourites Dave Koor) are the product of 2 years of studio collaboration and many more of friendship, with the next EP due to drop early next year. Over past couple of years, the dynamic live show has been previewed at Archspace, Ghost Notes with their premier festival appearances at Brainchild and Glastonbury Festivals.

They have also performed at Tate Modern and supported Amp Fiddler & Tony Allen at the Jazz Café.

Hector Plimmer is an exciting London-based beatmaker making his own unique style of atmospheric, hypnotically rhythmic music. His debut record Sunshine was released last year to a phenomenal response – garnering support from Gilles Peterson, Lauren Laverne and Jamie Cullum on the radio with press features in Boiler Room, i-D and Fact Magazine among many others. Tour support thus far has included Yussef Dayes, Amp Fiddler and Nightmares on Wax.
