Lord Echo Rarities 2010-2020: Japanese Tour Singles

      • 1. Be Thankful
      • 2. In Your Life (Lisa Tomlins Version)
      • 3. Nightclub Daydream
      • 4. Floating Bridge
      • 5. Woah! There's No Limit (Alternate Version)
      • 6. Thinking of Dub
      • 7. Makossa No. 2
      • 8. Cosmic Echoes In Dub

      While we patiently await new music, we can revel in versions that escaped the typical overthinking that occurs during the album process, instead reflecting the spontaneity and freedom of a touring artist. All tracks bar one ('Thinking of Dub') were initially released on short-run 7" singles for Echo's early Japan tours, made only available to dedicated fans who attended the live shows.

      The country holds a special place in his heart thanks to the warm hospitality of its citizens, in particular tour organiser and label owner Ken Sakairi from Wonderful Noise (with whom Soundway is co-releasing the vinyl album). That said, cultural differences made for unforgettable if not unique experiences of performing in Japan - from DJ etiquette which compelled him to stay to the end of the party no matter what, to a near-religious moment of dancing to Pat Metheny around a bonfire in the woods. A regular visitor to Asia will also be familiar with the concept of "lose-face", and in the case for Lord Echo it was processing the crushing shame of DJing a digital set alongside heavyweight Japanese collectors or next to signage stating "REAL DJ VINYL ONLY'.
