Paris DJs Soundsystem presents Lord Echo





New Zealander Mike August, aka Mike Fabulous, aka Lord Echo (and a few more different pseudonyms), is one of those unique multi-instrumentalists/producers you can't pigeonhole in a specific style, blending reggae, funk, Caribbean disco, house, soul & afrofunk — but who's first and foremost a dub artist, just like our own Grant Phabao on the other side of the world…

Between 2010 and 2017, he's put out three times the same album: with nearly the same title, cover artwork & musicians, and roughly the same blend of styles. All three, "Melodies", "Curiosities" and "Harmonies" are fantastic and deeply recommended to our readers/listeners. There's also a handful of limited edition 7 inches pressed and released in Japan only, appearances on records from The Black Seeds, Shogun Orchestra (two bands Lord Echo's been a member of) or The Frightnrs, and a few other timeless recordings to hunt down.

While constructing this mix, we picked something like 30 amazing tunes produced by, or featuring Lord Echo, and had to reduce the selection by half to build this podcast… All that to say there's A LOT of music from the man for you to discover. He'll be touring Europe this year in late april/early may, mostly opening for Fat Freddy's Drop. Try not to miss these, and in all cases, get those 3 albums as soon as possible, the vinyl reissues won't last long! (Hint : we have all three Lord Echo LPs plus a few CDs and rare EPs at the Paris DJs record store…)

I’m impressed, I must say. Seldom do I encounter a blog that’s both equally educative and amusing, and let me tell you, you've hit the nail on the head. The issue is something which too few folks are speaking intelligently about. I'm very happy that I stumbled across this in my hunt for something concerning this.
