Album Review: DJ Eco – M(you)sic (2011)
Hailing from New York, Marcello Pacheco known to many as DJ Eco, released his debut album “M(you)sic” on Armada Music this year. While DJ Eco may be a fresh face for some, Pacheco has actually been working on Electronic Dance Music for quite some time. With tracks released on various labels, DJ Eco is responsible for trance music anthems such as “Light At The End”, “Borealis”, “Mouse Without A Voice” and his uplifting 2006 musical masterpiece “Tonight Is Forever”.
The 2011 release of DJ Eco’s first studio album “M(you)sic” was not only refreshing, but also highly anticipated amongst devout trance music fans. Those who appreciate music in its true form will truly appreciate Eco’s debut effort, which captivates its audience from its first “Intro” track into “After All” a vocal track featuring Kerry Leva. Pacheco also worked alongside Casey Keyworth better known as Breakfast on the albums “Wide Open”, which was released as a single in November 2011. Eco showcases a track-series with “Hellovators (Part 1: Going In)” and “Hellovators (Part 2: Going Up)”, “Mali (Going In)” and “Mali (Going Up)”, as well as “Architextures (Part 1)” and “Architextures (Part 2)”, Part 2 of Architextures features Informant.
Those avid trance followers who may already be familiar with the sound of DJ Eco, can find the uplifting melodies and powerful synths they’re used to on the albums “The Stream Turned Into Ocean”, “Electric Poetry”, “Under Paper Skies”, and “The Light In Your Eyes Went Out”. Pacheco teamed up with Einat on the albums “Breaking The Habit”, and Jeza on the albums single “Over Paper Skies” which was released late Summer 2011 with a music video taking place throughout New York City depicting a larger than life water gun battle. One of the albums biggest tracks “My Name Is You(th)” alongside Eller Van Buuren, the younger brother of four-time number one DJ Armin Van Buuren, expresses their true musical capabilities.
One of the albums most prevailing tracks “Change The World” featuring vocalist Radmila, is lyrically powerful and melodically empowering. Overall, DJ Eco takes us on an emotional journey with “M(you)sic” in a seemingly flawless manor. The seventeen track effort listened to straight through tells a story portrayed by Pacheco. Call it trance, call it house, call it techno, call it what you wish – we call it a true story of what is possible when true talent is recognized. Don’t forget to always support your favorite artists and buy “M(you)sic” available now on Beatport.
