Very excited to announce the upcoming release of the debut LP …And the Sky by Echo Base’s own Nate Mondschein, aka Best Mann, out this coming fall. The lead single, “MCO”, drops next Friday, August 30th. The single and the album were both composed, produced, and performed entirely by Nate @ Echo Base Production, recorded at Echo Base and Ghost Hit Recording, mixed by Andrew Oedel @ Ghost Hit, and mastered by Brian Lucey @ Magic Garden Mastering. Stay tuned for more info on Best Mann’s upcoming music, and check out “MCO” when it goes live on Friday!
We’re only halfway through, and EBP’s first summer has already been a busy one! Here’s a quick roundup of some of the things that have been going on with Echo Base over the last two months:
-Recording Emma Ayres: The incomparably wonderful Emma Ayres and I have been having a blast tracking and producing her upcoming EP, “Encyclopedia of the Broken Hearted.” We wrapped basics a few weeks back, and are hitting the finishing production/tracking touches now! Stay tuned for details on that release, and in the meantime, check out some of Emma’s other amazing work here and here (w/ Old Flame)
-Speaking of Old Flame: in case you missed it, we released an album last spring! It’s called Young & In Debt and was produced by myself @ Echo Base, mixed by legit genius Andrew “Sandshrew” Oedel @ Ghost Hit Recording (who also handled the majority of the recording), and mastered by the amazing Andy Cassella of Shape Recording & Sodada fame. And if you haven’t yet (or even if you did back when it dropped), you should give it a listen (or 1000)!
-Speaking of Sodada: I’ve been in the studio doing production and drum work with this wonderful duo working on a batch of new singles that we’re very excited to share! Some pics from those sessions will be popping up in the gallery, and those tunes should be on their way soon! Very excited to share them. While you’re anxiously awaiting, make sure to check Sodada’s recent full length, Phase.
-Last But Not Least…New Studio: A week ago, Echo Base made the big move north-east to a wonderful spot in Shutesbury. Pics to come, but incredibly excited about how the new space is shaping up!

LOOKING TOWARDS FALL:
Starting to book projects heading into Fall 2019/Winter 2020, so if you’ve got any projects on deck in need of production work, give a shout: email@example.com
‘Till next time
You’re here! Where’s here? Great question! This is Echo Base Production, home of producer/composer/engineer/performer Nate Mondschein (that’s me!), and a great place to keep tabs on news about any upcoming Echo Base projects/productions/musical endeavors (as well as some general hype about musical family and friends of Echo Base and the amazing work they’re doing).
If you’ve found your way here, my guess is you have already worked with/know someone who has worked with/listened to music that Nate (still me!) has worked on, but for those of you looking for a little more info, swing by the “About” and “Studio” pages to get filled in on some more details about the history of Echo Base, or the “Work” and “Media” pages for some samples of previous Echo Base projects.
And always feel free to drop a line @ firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or thoughts, or to plan any future projects with Echo Base!
