EchoTest is the bass-centric progressive rock brainchild of Julie Slick (Adrian Belew Power Trio) and Italian musician and producer Marco Machera. The sound they create is a reinvention of the role of solo electric bass and brilliantly displays their songwriting abilities. A captivating combination of loop music, ambient dreamy soundscapes and interlocking bass patterns, always melodic yet aggressive and edgy at times. EchoTest also features the extraordinary drumming of Alessandri Inolti.
