LORD - Echo
This album solidifies Echo's 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.
Harmonies is the new long player from underground super-producer Lord Echo (aka Mike Fabulous). The new album solidifies his already distinctive mutations of reggae and rock steady with disco, African soul, techno and spiritual jazz.
Harmonies features Fat Freddy's Drop's Toby Laing, the composer and singer-songwriter Leila Adu, Mara TK of
Electric Wire Hustle, and Lisa Tomlins.
"I made this record primarily with DJs in mind. DJs and record nerds. They are generally people who really love music and are often obsessed with various aspects of it. And they still buy records! I respect that. I'm not making music for people for whom it's just some background noise in their lives; I'm making music for people for whom it IS their lives. And for better or worse, I guess I am one of those people." - Lord Echo
