Lord Echo - Just Do You 12" out

Out now on Soundway/Wonderful Noise: "Just Do You is the first single from underground super-producer Lord Echo's hotly anticipated 3rd album 'Harmonies'.

He emerges from the darkness with a gleaming diamond in his hand - a slice of pure disco dub indulgence with all the rough trimmings that have made him a cult favourite from Tokyo to Trinidad.

With the real life concerns of the DJ always foremost in his mind, this 12" has something for every occasion with two different vocals and a radical excursion into the realm of left field disco dub that record collectors sweat over in feverish night dreams of cult record acquisition.

Both vocalists are long time Lord Echo collaborators : Mara TK (Electric Wire Hustle) and Toby Laing (Fat Freddy's Drop).

Mara's version sees the golden voiced visionary wax lyrical on a night time affair stemming from a tiresome diplomatic function in a sweaty, exotic location deep in the recess' of your mind. Toby's vocal was recorded in a hotel room in France on one of Fat Freddies Drop's sweeping European tours and features some of the most obtuse yet deeply penetrating lines in contemporary songbook narrative."

Lord Echo has also been added to the bill for next year's Womad Festival in New Plymouth.
