REVIEW: "Ab Initio" on Bandcamp

This is Abby Echiverri’s debut release, but she has plenty of experience under her belt as a DJ and sound engineer—and it shows. While the beating heart of this EP is acid house, with each track she fragments her sounds, often breaking up the rhythms so it’s like looking at a cubist picture of a techno rave. But her well-schooled understanding of what is going to punch through a soundsystem means that it never feels fiddly or complicated for the sake of it: even when it’s jagged (“Ionosfeer”) or slow, sparse and strung-out (“Inquilinism”) there’s no mistaking that this is music for the club.

FEATURE: Abby on Hyponik / Studio Talk

Read this detailed rundown of my current studio setup here.  Thanks Hyponik!

With a professional background in the maintenance, engineering and manufacturing of audio equipment, it comes as no surprise that Abby Echiverri has an impressive collection of her own hardware. Classically trained in violin, piano, vocals, and flute, as well as an experienced DJ, VJ and sound engineer, her knowledge of the technicalities of music is extensive.

After moving to New York to study recording engineering and perform in post-punk bands, Echiverri quickly became a regular at local party institutions Wierd and The Bunker. As well as being an accomplished DJ, she’ll often play live, composing new pieces for each event.

Taking all this into account, it’s surprising that Echiverri has only just put her first release out. The ‘Ab Initio’ EP released on The Bunker is a testament to her mature and polished approach, despite her years. We requested an invite to her studio for a closer look at her key pieces of kit.

Abby on Red Bull Radio: The Bunker NY

Tomorrow I will be on Red Bull Radio playing a version of my live set in Detroit, doing an interview w The Bunker's Bryan Kasenic, and then DJing for an hour.  Tune in every week at 4-6pm EST!  Link here:

//// +++ EDIT ++++ ADDITION : if you missed it, you can stream the live set here:

On the eve of her first release for the Bunker New York, the inventive Queens producer plays genre-defying live and DJ sets from our studio.

Abby Echiverri is as immersed in the particulars of sound as anyone featured on the Bunker’s biweekly broadcast — as an audio engineer, she’s built custom studio and DJ equipment, helped maintain James Murphy and 2ManyDJs’ wildly high-spec Despacio soundsystem, run the Funktion One rig at Brooklyn’s Output club and worked on loads of other projects that delve into the science of sound. Despite all of that experience surrounding music production, she’s just now getting around to releasing her first record, the Ab Initio EP on the Bunker New York. Here she joins Bryan Kasenic in our NYC studio for a pair of exploratory sets – one live, one DJ’d – and an interview that fleshes out Echiverri’s unique take on electronic music.

Ab Initio follows Echiverri’s appearance on The Bunker’s 15th anniversary compilation earlier this year.

The Bunker New York’s next record is an EP from Abby Echiverri titled Ab Initio.

Made up of four hardware-based tracks, Ab Initio will be the New York-based Echiverri’s first full release, and it sees her back on The Bunker following a contribution to the label’s RA-recommended 15th anniversary compilation, out in February. The EP lands in a couple weeks on vinyl and digital formats.

Echiverri has an extensive musical background: classically trained in violin, flute, piano and vocals as a child, she’d go on to study music engineering at university and perform in the post-punk band Dream Affair, and The Bunker says she became a regular at their parties “at a very young age.” Nowadays, she seems to wear many hats, as a live act, DJ, VJ, engineer and gear technician. The past couple years have seen her doing tech work with LCD Soundsystem and Soulwax, and she used to be production manager at Brooklyn club Output.

Thank you Detroit...

What a journey.  I had such an amazing time playing for Interdimensional Transmissions Presesents: 15 Years of The Bunker because I got to play a weirdo, trippy, slowed down set of my normal electro.  It goes without saying that it was an honor to perform at IT, where the No Way Back productions have continually blown my mind.  This performance is going to stay with me :)
