Black Echo Zone
Black Echo Zone is a creation by Scott McEntyre. Meant to be an effort to meld old classic Detroit Techno sound with new unfamiliar rhythms and beats. When listening to any BEZ collaborations the listener should clearly hear deep bass along with beautiful melodies and driving drums. So escape to a new world of sound and imagination and darkness.
