Echobox is an independent online radio station by the community, for the community. Their network of founders, each having been involved in Amsterdam’s radio scene and with a wealth of experience in the music industry, came together to create a new streaming platform. Now, joined by over 150 radio makers from Amsterdam and beyond, they have carved their own lane in the airwaves. Passionately focusing on the “radio” part of the online streaming world, they have subverted contemporary tropes of online radio by focusing on an audio-based stream that focuses on sound.
Through their multi-faceted studio in Amsterdam, they have been able to showcase talk shows, live music, DJ sets, interviews and everything in between. Every Thursday to Sunday, their packed roster of residents ranges from some of the most recognisable people in the Amsterdam scene, as well as providing a space for guests passing through town and a platform for new and upcoming talents to share their sounds, music archives and ideas on an inclusive program.
The Patta and Echobox partnership goes back to projects started before this collaboration; since then the relationships between both teams have continued to grow and evolve. Echobox strives to provide a platform based on diversity, equity and inclusivity, for radio makers experienced and new, and during the year so far, Patta has been getting familiar with some of them through the ‘Tales from the Echobox’ series. Now as they enter the next stage of their relationship, Patta and Echobox have joined hands to create a crowdfunding T-Shirt in which all the proceeds will go toward the radio station.The Patta x Echobox T-Shirt features a Patta Script Logo on the front and the back is adorned with a radio wave inspired Echobox print designed by Experimental Jetset. The Patta x Echobox T-Shirt will be available exclusively on shop.echobox.radio on Monday, June 13th at 13:00 CEST.
