Some DJs “kill it”, others breathe life. And some paint inspirational musical textures to the minds of those present that they’ll never forget. In a new age of disposable gimmicky dance music, the sound of Eco has remained a constant.

Even Armin van Buuren was left in awe on his world-wide acclaimed radio show A State Of Trance, declaring, “I seriously don’t know how he does it. Everything [Eco] is touching is turning into pure melodic gold,” and, soon after, made him a permanent fixture on his Dutch powerhouse EDM label Armada Music, as one of the few and standout American artists on his roster. His critically acclaimed albums and compilations such as “M(you)sic” and “Constellations In You” set the popular formulaic standards on their head, and cultivated a fresh new dedicated following throughout the U.S. and beyond.

His sets at Ultra Music Festival, Electric Daisy Carnival Las Vegas, and Electric Zoo New York, as well as his appearances on Armin van Buuren’s A State Of Trance Invasion tours throughout Europe and the States have inspired partygoers the world over to push the envelope with the music they listen to or create. The sound of Eco has become many people’s catalyst: to explore, to create, to dream, to live.

From Amsterdam to Montreal, from Miami to Los Angeles, the sound of New York City’s own young artist Eco is quickly establishing him as one of the standout American DJ/producer exports. Some DJs “kill it”, Eco breathes life; some DJs quickly explode onto the scene, he shines like a beacon for all to follow and find inspiration through the long night.

“The Sky Below” (free download)

Here’s a new track called “The Sky Below” for free download. I developed it quickly about a month ago as a submission for Armin van Buuren’s ASOT 750 anthem contest. It isn’t really in line with the sound or style of my “WOLVES” material, and I don’t think it’s representative of my best work, so I figured I’d share with you for free, for the fun of it. It’s been a while since I’ve released anything, so I hope you enjoy and will share it!

The Sound of You(th) 016 (Halloween edition)

Since I started clubbing, some of my favorite nights out every year have been on Halloween. Something about the holiday brings the best out of every DJ who comes into New York for the weekend. My favorite DJs over the years have known the vibe they needed to create for the crowd and would do it seamlessly. So, I wanted to do a little something similar of my own. I’ve picked out some of my favorite “dark” tracks from the past 10 years and tried to imagine playing a Halloween warehouse party. Be prepared, this is not for the faint of heart.
