afropunk premiere: gedeon luke and the people’s new rockin soul remix – ‘echoes’ (opolopo boogie bounce remix)

June 10, 2015

Today we’re premiering the new remix from Memphis Soul rockers Gedeon Luke and The People – a rework of their single ‘Echoes’, courtesy of Swedish producer Opolopo. Gedeon Luke tells us, “This song is a dedication to all of the legends that have come before me. Influenced by their words, rhythms, and messages, I couldn’t do a record like this if I didn’t have their shoulders to lean on.” And Opolopo adds: “When picking a track from the album to remix I immediately gravitated towards ‘Echoes’. Gedeon’s energetic delivery, with lots of hooks and great lyrics about the artists we are all inspired by, made it an obvious choice.” Listen below (plus, see Gedeon Luke and The People’s upcoming tour dates).
