Started as a side project to his main gig in The Black Seeds, Lord Echo released a few tracks here and there on compilations (under the name Mike Fab) and the occasional 7-inch single.
His debut album Melodies dropped in late 2010 and charmed all who heard its seductive soul-reggae and afrofunk. It attracted attention from several overseas labels, picking up release in Japan and Europe, both on CD and vinyl. The album highlight proved to be his cover of Sister Sledge’s ‘Thinking Of You’, reworked as a skanking reggae/ska tune.
He has since released a few solo singles, produced the most recent Black Seeds albums Solid Ground and Dust And Dirt, and collaborated with Lawrence Arabia on the album Unlimited Buffet as half of Fabulous/Arabia.
A second album Harmonies was released in 2017 on the UK Soundway label.
