“Music is the Soul Food”

Lively Audio is the new project of Ralph Echter. I was active in the Dutch electronic music scene for almost 20 years. Primarily I was happily spinning vinyl grooves as DJ Gentle and was co-producer of the Dutch duo ‘Fortress’ (later named ‘Paragon’). This led to many other adventures and collaborations such as the cofounding of DJ collective ‘Shifting Gears Collective’ with Eugene van der Poel (DJ Gene Williams) as well as the event organisation company ‘Multiarea’ together with Angelo Faassen (Biological).

Multiarea was also, for a big part, artist management of DJ's & Live acts and I had the privilege to take care of the Benelux bookings for Long Range (from Phil 'Orbital' Hartnoll & Nick Smith), Ian Simmonds aka Juryman (!K7 / Musik Krause), Ben Mono (Compost Records), Paul Murphy (Afroart Recordings), Capitol A (2000 Black), Darcosan (Vienna Scientists Recordings), Biological (EC Records), C.O.N.E (Footsteppa) and Dogdaze (now known as A Made Up Sound).

Fast forward 10 years. Here is to wishing you an ear-gasmic listening experience at my new little musical playground, ‘Lively Audio’, where you can hear some of my mixes and where I feature talented artists & independent labels that I've discovered on SoundCloud.

Enjoy the melody!
