Echocord are very proud to release the debut album of Luke Hess from Detroit. After his succesfull 12” on Echocord Colour he did with Marko Fürstenberg, he is now back with a full length album on Echocord. Luke Hess creates deep Detroit techno with a focus on soul and experimentation over prevalence and trends. Born in 1980 in metro-Detroit and subject to the city's mid-90's warehouse parties, Luke has harnessed a deep appreciation for the underground movement and electronic dance music. His faith based music production has given him the desire to reach out to others, in the hope that electronic music can be a bridge for restoration and not an avenue for destruction. After acclaimed releases on FXHE, and other successful releases on Beretta Grey, Echocord Colour, and Kontra-Musik, Luke's sound is beginning to take root. His Debut Album, "Light in the Dark" on Echocord further explores deep Detroit dance music through field recordings, live percussion sessions, analog experimentation, and dark cavernous melodies.
