How do two musicians – one living in Echo Park, the other in London – collaborate on music? The above video shows how AM of Echo Park traded song tracks and ideas with Shawn Lee of London as they worked more than 5,000 miles apart in their respective studios. The video begins in London and then switches to AM and the Echo Park studio set up by Brad Gordon. How did the two musicians team up? The publicity material explains:
The Echo Park to London, transatlantic musical collaboration between AM and Shawn Lee was conceived after AM heard Lee’s music on the radio in Los Angeles and reached out to him via email. The two became quick friends sharing a love for vintage grooves and 60’s and 70’s soundtrack music and decided to embark on making an album 21st century style.
The result is the single “Dark into the Light,” which is scheduled to be released today.
