Antenna anarchy from below sea level: Echobox Radio
Amsterdam’s independent online radio station Echobox launches soon. The project initiated by a group of local & international Amsterdammers, consisting out of Chalice Cox-Hynd, Victor Crezée, Mohamed Ghabri, Rachella Groen and Lorenzo Milelli, aims 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.
