Although online radio is currently in bloom, we often see the word ‘radio’ fading. Echobox is an independent online station initiated by a group of local & international Amsterdammers aiming to deliver a diverse and inclusive program within a format rooted in traditional radio. A multi-faceted studio in the creative hub of Amsterdam city will cater to differing forms of content creation with a solid focus on audio: interviews, talk shows, live music as well as DJ sets within a radio context. Packing a roster of regular hosts comprised of both fresh and more recognisable Amsterdam DJs, storytellers, cultural institutions and collectives as well as one-off exclusives from artists and music enthusiasts passing through town.
Echobox will endeavour to work closely with their broadcasters to make sure they are supported in realising their concepts and to create a level playing field for the aspiring and experienced alike. In order to portray as full a spectrum of the Amsterdam community as possible the applications will be open to all: pitches can be submitted via a simple form. Training, in-house production and carefully curated programming are integral to Echobox’s operation in order to uphold a comprehensive, inclusive and cutting edge feed.
Team members Chalice Cox-Hynd, Victor Crezée, Mohamed Ghabri, Rachella Groen and Lorenzo Milelli have a wealth of accumulated knowledge in various fields of the music industry and have the well familiar 22tracks, BBC Radio, BLiP Agency, Mo Manager, Patta Soundsystem and Red Light Radio on their résumés. They are aiming to fill the broadcasting gap that they see in Amsterdam’s scene and bring it to the world.
