Lord Echo: Melodies

Lord Echo – aka DJ Mike Fabulous from New Zealand – could just as well have called his Melodies album Lord Echo Meets Rockers Down Under. The Rhythm 77 that opens this album signals that crates have been raided for dub and disco dominance; funk flavours, African highlife and Latin rhythms are added to create an intoxicating rush that’ll take you back to Kid Loco’s first records in 96/7.

The biggest hit on the album is a version of Sister Sledge’s Thinking Of You. If this gets a vinyl release it’ll conquer the world.
