Ape Echoes formerly known as Ape Machines is the frankensteinian brainchild of Bombay-based producers and multi-instrumentalists, Nirmit Shah and Sid Shirodkar. Alternately moving through territories influenced by crossover-jazz, electronica, noise, hip-hop, prog-rock, funk, and soul, Ape Machines forms a sonically and emotionally varied palette. The producer pair frequently combine traditional acoustic and electronic instrumentation with more raw or experimental elements, weaving together an immersive musical narrative.
After forming in early 2016, the pair was soon joined by Sahil Shah and Harsh Gadhvi. Their debut EP, ‘Ape Machines’, was released in August 2017.
