Ape Echoes is the frankensteinian brainchild of Bombay-based producers and multiinstrumentalists, Nirmit Shah and Sid Shirodkar. Drummer Sahil Shah joined the duo in 2016, soon after their formation. Guitarist Harsh Gadhvi joined in 2017 in the initial legs of their debut EP release tour. Ape Echoes frequently combine traditional acoustic and electronic instrumentation with experimental sampling – weaving together an immersive if sometimes chaotic musical narrative. Their debut EP, ‘Ape Machines’, was released in August 2017 and alternately moves through territories inﬂuenced by crossover-jazz, electronica, noise, hip-hop, prog-rock, funk, and soul.
