Dreamy Space Echoes... Regarded as the future of shoe gaze SPC ECO (pronounced SPACE ECHO after the vintage Roland 201) are Rose Berlin (Voice of an Angel), Dean Garcia (Production, Bass, Drums and Guitar), and Joey Levenson (Sonic Guitar FX).
Rose, with her beautiful understated angelic voice, is 19 and currently studying Art and Architecture in London. Dean Garcia is a legendary multi-instrumentalist maverick who happens to know his way around the recording studio and music production, as well as being a highly regarded bass guitar virtuoso. Joey Levenson is a master of sound layers, who also happens to have one of the largest collections of vintage guitar FX pedals on the planet.
SPC ECO have self-produced, recorded, performed and mixed the entire album as well as working in the studio with the highly regarded Alan Moulder (NIN, U2, Depeche Mode) for mixing duties on a few tracks. The 11 track album features 3 additional bonus tracks including mixes from Tim Holmes (Death In Vegas) of “Telling You”, and a special mix of “Shine On Down” by Alan Moulder.
SPC ECO 3-D leans heavily on the Dreampop era of the early nineties that comprised bands like My Bloody Valentine, Curve, Ride and Spiritualized. Preferring the term Nu Gaze, SPC ECO conjure up images and echoes of MBV and the Cocteau's (as well as the more contemporaneous influences Glasvegas and Massive Attack). Combining layer upon layer of guitar laden sound scapes along with fierce electronic drums and fluid dub bass lines. Within, without and textured throughout is Rose Berlin's voice, one of the most delicate and wondrous instruments known to man.
SPC ECO is a spaced out hybrid of “nu gaze tripadelica” that combines soul-lifting, mind-expanding, heart-soothing bliss with monolithic beats, heavy bass grooves, and layers of effects...a beautiful cacophony of ambient noise echoes.
