SHRUBBN!! have been around for a cool 15 years … and that’s exactly how long we have been waiting for this particular beauty: their debut album. After all, buddies Ulli Bormans (aka SCHIERES) and Marco Haas (aka T.RAUMSCHMIERE) prefered to sling out the odd SHRUBBN!! track on different, almost forgotten labels whenever they felt like getting it together. Now, the duo surprise and delight us with a veritable gem of a record. Their long distance debut ECHOS follows an upbeat scientific credo of art for text. Pushing the computer aside, Ulli and Marco crafted fourteen pulsating, deep and dubby tracks caught up between ambient and beats – a thick, full sound, a call of the deep with plenty of passion for reverb and bass.
