Mighty Six Ninety
We are delighted to announce our first release in four years from London trio EKKOES! The song is called You Just Walked Away and it’ll be available via all platforms on Friday 26 February.
More information below and stay tuned!
It was always going to take something fresh and invigorating to bring the legendary KIDS Records back to life and London electronic act EKKOES are the act responsible for the return of the label who kicked off the career of The Wombats, Kyte and The Whip, oversaw the first UK release from Band of Horses and unveiled Paul Hartnoll of Orbital’s solo debut. The three-piece posses all the trademark qualities of the label’s signature focus on quality and ambition, showcasing a brand of bittersweet, song-driven electronic pop taking cues from the likes of New Order, CHVRCHES, St Lucia, Years & Years, Human League and Hurts.
EKKOES create beautifully crafted pop songs, both melancholic and euphoric, underpinned by a dancefloor sensibility. Jon Beck and Limerick born Rosalee O’Connell sing the songs, whilst Dave Fawbert is on keys, guitar and programming. The band have been writing together since 2013 and launch with their single ‘You Just Walked Away’ – a catchy, broken love song with a melodic chorus, lightly tripping over hi energy bass and synths. The single is the first of four tracks to be released monthly, before the self-produced album ‘Elekktricity’, which features mixing credits from Paul ‘P Dub’ Walton (U2/ Massive Attack/ Goldfrapp) and Duncan Mills (Florence and the Machine/ Peace).
The 2nd single from Edinburgh electro act Discopolis, the mighty ‘Zenithobia’ is released today via all good digital providers!
The EP features remixes from Miaoux Miaoux, One Dollar Dave and a truly epic extended reworking of the original.
In addition, the Beatport version of the release comes with an exclusive deep house mix courtesy of Gabriel Amour.

The release has received support at radio from: John Kennedy (XFM), XFM Playlist, Mary Anne Hobbs (XFM), Q Radio, Ally McCrae (Radio 1), Vic Galloway (Radio 1), Lauren Laverne (6Music) and the lovely press have had been very kind indeed, with praise from the NME, Artrocker (“a single that shows both maturity beyond their years and a sound larger than their number”) and QX (“a beautifully atmospeheric serving of dramatic synths”), together with bloglove from The Get Downnn (“a listening experience unlike any other”), Clixie, Breaking More Waves (“where the electronic cool of Delphic mixes with the sweaty euphoria of Friendly Fires”) and The Electric Sound of Joy amongst many others.
