Nothing To Live For
Tranquility (Icone Remix)
|3||mp3||2005-00-00||Not On Label (Icone Self-Released)|
Hailing from central southern England, Echano is unfortunately-named Martyn Bone, an 18-year-old keen-yet-picky trance enthusiast and amateur producer.
His passion for the genre that is trance probably began part-way through the year of 1999, when the original instrumental version of Fragma's 'Toca Me' led to the impulse purchase of a thoroughly decent compilation CD. Perhaps a little sad, but certainly fortunate as he was hooked! Soon it wasn't long before he found an interest in producing his own music.
This became more of a solid hobby towards the end of 2001. In terms of musical development and progress however it's taken until mid-2003 for things to really gain momentum. Following an initial collaboration with Fin Nikolai Rasimus (formerly Beat Project and now OrgaNik), the Al Azar partnership was formed. Meanwhile Echano enjoyed his first glimmers of popularity with summer track Tranquility and a vocal remix of Madonna's Frozen.
With subsequent productions and remixes, both Echano and Al Azar have generated more solid popularity; Nothing to Live For is now a forthcoming release on Motion Music, and has so far gained support from Armin van Buuren, Solar Stone, The Thrillseekers, Jon O'Bir, Niklas Harding, Marc West, Above & Beyond and others with a remix from Gareth Emery alias GTR.
