“Kiwi producer Lord Echo's latest effort continues a penchant for dancefloor-tested tunes and grooves, a pick-and-mix collection of reggae, East and West African music, American funk and soul and stops in between. It almost sounds dusty, consistent with his proclamation of a recording ethos steeped in a '60s analogue vibe. Calling in a range of guest vocalists (including Leila Adu and Mara TK) adds to the eclectic, loose but polished feel of Harmonies, a place where woodwinds swirl (Life On Earth), disco beats battle with syncopated glockenspiels (The Sweetest Meditation) and flanged electric guitar and slapped bass underpin falsettos (Just Do You).” – Otago Daily Times

“Wellington, New Zealand native Mike Fabulous has spent the past decade helming production for the Black Seeds, the archipelago’s most popular white reggae band (which once featured “Flight of the Conchords”’ Bret McKenzie ). 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. The first single from his upcoming LP Harmonies, “Just Do You,” keeps his perspective firmly nostalgic. The Mayfield-lite croon comes courtesy of a fellow New Zealander, Mara TK of Electric Wire Hustle, who gives the track an vibe well-suited for the dancefloor. TK’s warm falsetto floats atop the track’s strutting bassline, punctuated by bright horns and bongos that evoke the image of a Kiwi Mark Ronson painting with an Afro-Caribbean palette. And as the first taste of Harmonies, “Just Do You” suggests he’s got plenty more grooves left in store.” – Pitchfork
