As you can see by looking at a lot of our artwork, music has always been a big inspiration for us, and was one of our main influences when we originally started the brand. We've always felt it's important to promote good independent music, which is why we have a section dedicated to it on our site. All the music we feature has been provided by artists that are connected to the brand in one way or another, from international DJ's and producers, to bedroom beat makers and rappers. As well as original tracks, beat tapes and mixtapes, we are also home to the monthly Echo Base podcast. You can listen to, or download the music straight from our site, or you can do the same through our Soundcloud and Mixcloud pages. Enjoy.

April’s edition of Echo Base saw Mr Brown, Pings & Chris Headcount get busy with a whole heap of brand new & classic Hip Hop releases. Check out the track list below.

Incase you don't know already, DJ Pings is the founder of one of the dopest independent Hip-Hop labels to ever emerge from the UK, King Underground Records. This mini mix is the first in a series, hopefully of many, and gives you a little taste of the music that Pings is into and the vibe that he represents through the label.

"Originally I was just going to do these mini mixes for myself for some iPod action, but then I thought it might be nice to post them up via Dephect. The idea is that each mix will fit into the next, so it's like an ongoing project. All very simple, not really about skills, just dope music, hip hop and breaks."


To celebrate 10 years since the release of his debut album 'The Enthusiast', Evil Ed has joined forces with Donnie Propa to drop this mixtape through Dephect. Mixed purely from vinyl it showcases classics, rarities and remixes all produced by the evil one! Featuring tracks with Jehst, Taskforce, Tommy Evans, Ricochet, Microdisiacs and many more.
