The Echocentrics is a new project from Austin-based two-time Grammy nominated producer Adrian Quesada, a member of Grupo Fantasma, and one of the minds behind bands like Ocote Soul Sounds, and Brownout.
This introductory, limited edition, 7" single features "Esclavo Y Amo," which is a cover of a Peruvian bolero (ballad) performed by Los Pasteles Verdes that Quesada first heard about 8 years ago. The original version was the tune that inspired the forthcoming Echocentrics album. It's a catchy psychedelic soul obscurity that takes the form of an American soul ballad and spits it back-out dripping in lo-fi South American charm, and sounds like pure sample fodder for someone like Ghostface Killah. "When I first got obsessed with their sound, and in particular that song, I was up late one night surfing the web and emailed them," says Quesada. "I was surprised when the original bandleader actually wrote me right back. They still play in Peru."
