FRESH: ‘Love Took Control’ – EchoStorms

EchoStorms debut with “Love Took Control”!

Introducing the fresh vibrant sound of new UK dance duo, EchoStorms, as they bound onto the global music stage with their debut single and a debut album in the pipeline. Fusing an effervescent up-beat pioneering electronic dance vibe, with distinctive crystalline vocals, UK pop duo, EchoStorms, burst onto the global stage with their debut single “Love Took Control”, with a debut album in the pipeline for Spring 2021.

Juicy-fresh and teeming with sheer summer joy, “Love Took Control”, is a super-charged up-tempo track, that seamlessly traverses from dance floor to radio; ear-worming its way straight to that addictive place that has us singing it over and over. But as the outer shrink-wrap takes us to musical elation, the lyrics are deceptively deep and dark, as they tackle the very relevant topic of loss, mental health and depression. Depicting the bitter-sweet emotions of falling in love when you’re carrying the scars of previous heartbreak, the fear of succumbing to love and getting your fingers burnt over again, and those ‘chips are down’ moments when you need to have complete faith in yourself to fight for what you believe in, “Love Took Control” is a sugar coated bullet that hits the bullseye. Deceptively weaving these dark moments of our lives throughout a sound-bed of anthemic joy, results in a track that delivers absolute pop/dance euphoria.

EchoStorms are Ben and Katya. Both extraordinarily talented multi-instrumentalists, vocalists and producers, their musical chemistry set sparks flying they moment they set foot in the studio together. With the success of previous bands under his belt, which resulted in a string of radio airplays and live performances alongside Paloma Faith and Maddness, it didn’t take long before Ben was quickly spotted for his production genius.

Stepping behind the production desk, Ben worked alongside the likes of the mighty Timbaland, Jim Beanz, Tom Lord Alge and Ed Buller; Ben even performed live at P Diddy’s Grammy afterparty. But meeting Katya was a game changer for Ben, as he instantly recognised her unique and distinctive vocals. EchoStorms were conceived and the musical journey began, as the duo spearheaded their musical diversity into creating a sound that was inimitably pioneering for the new decade.

Mirroring old-skool tactics in dance music, the pair will be taste-testing their new sounds on live dancefloors with the launch of the Club EchoStorms, where they’ll be hosting live club-nights close to their newly made studio in St Tropez. With live DJ sets from the EchoStorms duo, plus guest sets from British DJ, Club EchoStorms will bring a slice of UK club culture to St Tropez every week during the summer months, with plans to roll-out the concept globally. In parallel, Ben and Katya, are in the process of creating their own boutique writing/production/mixing studio. Nestled in the hills above beautiful St Tropez, ‘Le Nest’, will offer a stunning and inspiring location, with an atmosphere which is the perfect breeding ground for creativity; that will be open to music artists worldwide.

So perhaps you’ve read an article or two that I’ve written and wondered “just who is this character?”! Well I thought maybe it would be time to introduce myself and what I’m all about. Well it’s all about the music! Having been born in the late 1970’s I was heavily influenced by my parent’s love of ‘popular’ music and rock and roll of the 1950’s and 60’s. My Mother always said she should of married Elvis and my father was, and is still, in love with Sandie Shaw! But while my Dad’s tastes stopped in about 1967, my Mum carried on loving music throughout the 70’s, 80’s and beyond. My first memory was playing on the floor whilst my Mother was ironing one day with the radio on, and hearing ABBA’s “Super Trouper” dancing my nappy off to it! Maybe that’s where it all went wrong…?! Having been subjected to all and sundry in my infant years, I finally found my feet in the mid-1980’s and began ‘partying’ to the likes of Culture Club, Stevie Wonder(!), Elkie Brooks and Bananarama to name but a few! The year 1987 would have a profound effect on my listening tastes and from thereon in my life would be dominated with buying and listening to music. Any number of outstanding songs were released and listened to that year, most notably “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now”, “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” and “La Isla Bonita”. That Summer my mind was completely taken over with music and sounds I’d never heard before and I was totally taken in by it all. My father would say “whaaar rubbish you got on naaaaao?” (I’m from Norfolk!) but I was hooked. And it continued so for the rest of the decade and the next. At the beginning of 1988 I ‘met’ my true love and the singer I’ve worshipped more than any other artist or group. You may know of her. She’s from Australia…! Aside from pop music, my tastes are many and varied and continues to grow and expand as I ‘mature’ in age. I’ve always been heavily interested in films and in particular the mechanics of film making and of course film music, so scores and subsequently orchestral music takes up a lot of my tastes and collection. 90’s dance and club tunes also takes up much of the space in my head and I’m surprised my brain has stopped shaking from the years of abuse it took being dragged to nightclubs, often three times a week in my 20’s! I find with each year that passes I regress back to my youth and of course the 1980’s. 80’s music dominates and the lust to see as many 80’s acts and singers play live now is insatiable. I’m still getting into the groove as much as every breath I take, but I’m never gonna give up listening to my heart and pumping up the volume, simply because I LOVE MUSIC…any kind of music!
