Bastard Jazz Recordings presents the sophomore album Curiosities by New Zealand multi-instrumentalist and producer Lord Echo (aka Mike Fabs). An enticing sonic excursion that effortlessly transcends genre and geography, the release finds Echo flexing his dual-mastery of 60′s production techniques and modern dancefloor aesthetics, while highlighting the vocal prowess of his soulful compatriots through a flowing blend of boogie-laced Funk, disco-primed Dub, futuristic Soul, and timeless African rhythms.

Curiosities picks up right where his first album Melodies left off, with sun-drenched psychedelic dub sounds of tracks like “Bohemian Idol” (featuring vocals by Toby Laing of Fat Freddy’s Drop), and the jerky funk vibes of cuts like “Digital Haircut”. The album provides a wealth of DJ fodder, with forward thinking 70s-inspired disco tunes such as “Molten Lava” (featuring the soaring vocals of Leila Adu), as well as analog Afro-infused burners like “Put It In My Head” (complemented by the golden-voiced Mara TK of Electric Wire Hustle fame). Another highlight from the album is Echo’s driving cover-version of the Pharoah Sanders & Leon Thomas classic “The Creator Has a Master Plan”, uplifted by the soulful singing of Lisa Tomlins.

This DJ promo features the two lead singles from the album, which is now available on LP, CD and Digital (BUY NOW). Also check out the mix from Rich Medina after the jump, along with the full album stream.

The seventh and latest track in the series is N.A.S.A.‘s re-interpretation of Max Romeo and The Upsetters classic reggae anthem “I Chase the Devil.” Having collaborated with heads as diverse as M.I.A., Karen O and Tom Waits on their masterful debut LP The Spirit of Apollo, it was anyone’s guess as to what direction N.A.S.A. would take. After hours spent crunching real tape loops and experimenting with the dubbing to get exactly the right “stoned, spacey feel,” the production on the
