Echo Other (24 Bit Alternate Master)

by All India Radio



This 'lost' version of Echo Other was mastered in January 2006 by Francois Tetaz at Moose. Francois was (and still is) a go-to producer/mixer best known for producing Gotye's 'Somebody That I Used To Know' and many other fantastic artists including Kimbra, Architecture in Helsinki and High Pass Filter. I was lucky to have hired him. Trouble is I didn't like the results. To be fair I think it was less Francois' mastering work than the mixes themselves. It's hard to put my finger on why I wasn't happy. Sometimes you just need to keep tweaking until it feels right. A few more weeks of re-mixing and I was satisfied, but I wasn't able to take it back to Francois for mastering as he was booked out and I had a deadline to meet.

As the years went by I'd forgotten about the Francois Tetaz version. Thankfully he had mastered the final files as individual high resolution 24bit wav files and not just a 16bit master CD as is usually the case. What's different? The Quiet Ambient and Mexicola have noticeably different mixes and the other tracks have been more subtly tweaked mainly in the upper EQ range. Long time fans will notice the changes and those of you with high resolution playback gear will hear the album in all its hi-rez glory for the first time!

Eight years after its initial release I'm happy to present to you the 'lost' version of Echo Other in its original high resolution form.

Make sure you download the FLAC versions for the full high resolution experience (Source files are 24bit/44.1khz WAV files)

Since1998. I play mostly ambient music. Sometimes spacey and cosmic like Pink Floyd, sometimes electronic and chilled. Wired magazine: "has mashed the ambient-hop signatures of DJ Shadow, Tortoise and Thievery Corporation with the instantly recognizable guitar soundtracking of Ennio Morricone and Angelo Badalamenti.... capable of floating listeners to galaxies far, far away." ... more
