LORD ECHO

"Harmonies" is the new long player from underground super-producer Lord Echo. While his growing legion of fans clamoured for new material, Lord Echo descended into obscurity in the industrial backwaters of New Zealand where he lived alone and went completely insane trying to complete the record.  The new album solidifies his already distinctive mutations of reggae and rock steady with disco, African soul, techno and spiritual jazz. In other words, the Lord has returned from the wilderness with a bounty for his followers. Eat of the bread of life and enjoy access to his crazy World of Sound.
“I generally only work with people I know quite well personally - so this included Tony Laing (Fat Freddy's Drop), who is a long time friend and collaborator, Leila Adu - a fantastically versatile composer and songwriter, the excellent singer and producer Mara TK (Electric Wire Hustle) who I was living with at the time and of course the fabulous Lisa Tomlins, whose rendition of Thinking Of You by Sister Sledge was such a hit off the last record.”

Lord Echo

The Sweetest Meditation Remixes

    Lord Echo have quickly risen to fame through three impeccable albums which have seen New Zealand's Mike Fabs become a regular fixture in the more discernable record shops throughout the world. Three different mixes of "The Sweetest Meditation", taken from his "Harmonies" album released earlier this year. The A-side features the original mix (present here for the first time at 45RPM) alongside a re-vamped club version. Both allow the lucious arrangement and instrumentation plenty of room and space to make their impact. The song has a definite structure, with verses, choruses and instrumental bridge sections beautifully penned and well sequenced. I guess the club version buffs up the kick and the low end a bit more to carry it across the party island speaker stacks that this track so well deserves. On the flip Julien Dyne offers up his own intrepetation of the stems - keeping that upbeat funky vibe but switching up the instrumentation - replacing organic with electronic and adding bucket loads of synthy goodness. Finally, if you thought you'd had enough we get an excellent, tropical island 'dub' to complete the package.

    Melodies

      Much loved by our most stylish customer (none other than Pasta Paul), Lord Echo's fusion of disco, dub, Afrobeat and funk has found plenty of fans recently, so this is the perfect time for a lavish double vinyl reissue of the classic Lord Echo debut "Melodies". Alongside his huge version of Sister Sledge's "Thinking Of You", we get plenty of smooth grooves, analogue sounds and humid textures perfect for a midsummer's smoke sesh. Previously only available in Japan, this peach of a debut LP is essential listening for the recent converts.
