Previously of New Zealand reggae act The Black Seeds, Lord Echo made his own mark with last year's debut solo album Melodies, which combined funk, dub, beats and Latin influences and also included a killer cover of Sister Sledge's "Thinking of You". On this latest tune (out on Brooklyn's Bastard Jazz label), Echo works up a fun, sunny disco-funk groove complete with some urgent organ chords and some live brass. On the flip, "Long Time No See" comes in on a boogaloo tip with a mesh of clavs, cowbells and claps all fused together with plenty of Latin flavour.
