Lord Echo Brings 'Harmonies' to Wellington & Auckland

Lord Echo takes Harmonies on tour

Thursday, September 28, 2017 - Wellington producer and multi-instrumentalist Lord Echo is taking his stunning record Harmonies on the road for a pair of headline shows at iconic venues San Fran in Wellington and Hollywood Cinema in Auckland this November.

Harmonies is the third album from Mike Fabulous’ solo project Lord Echo, but on the road he’ll be joined on stage by five stellar musicians - Lisa Tomlins, Mara TK, Lucien Johnson, Daniel Hayles and Izak Chads. Following festival performances at WOMAD NZ and overseas, these are the long-awaited first headline shows in support of the album.

“With his Lord Echo project, Fabulous thoughtfully incorporates dub reggae rhythms and a production aesthetic redolent of the ‘60s into an expansive pool of sounds that draws from 1970s West African clubs quiet storm-era Motown, Caribbean disco, and more.” - Pitchfork

Lord Echo is a multi-instrumentalist producer and engineer and DJ whose music imagines a world where reggae and rocksteady rub shoulders with Latin music, disco, African soul and techno. His production aesthetic keeps a firm grasp on the DJs need for quality sound material but never strays far from the ever popular sounds of the 60's and 70's, which he has put half a lifetime into absorbing.

This combination of imagination and technical mastery of all but forgotten sound techniques have allowed him to craft a sound that is instantly recognisable, even in today’s over saturated world of music.

Currently performing as a six piece live band, they have performed at WOMAD NZ, Adelaide Festival, Shanghai JZ Festival and numerous other shows around the globe.
