Daniel W J Mackenzie is perhaps best known for his work as Ekca Liena, a droning guitar and electronic mesh of ambience, electronica and hints of doom. This alias has carved it’s place in the UK ambient underground. In addition, Daniel also records and performs with psychedelic drone outfit Plurals and even have collaboration with Nadja’s Aidan Baker due. Ekca Liena`s music contains a variable configuration of ambient, drone, post-rock, doom, noise and electronica. There is also a psychedelic and ritual element at times. Daniel Mackenzie is making music since his mid-teens and when Daniel hit seventeen he think it got a bit more serious. This combined with a continuing desire to transpose emotions and experiences (usually of the negative, melancholic kind) and things far more abstract into art are the roots of it.
“Light Procession” is new album recorded last winter and now released in a limited edition of 100 copies in special hand-made packaging with foto inserts inside. Here we have excellent mash-up of ambient, post rock, drone, drum tribal and eletronic.
