With his project Akasha System, Portland-based producer Hunter P. Thompson brings the lush nature of the Northwest to his electronic beats. On his Bandcamp page, he says the new album, Echo Earth, was inspired by “days and nights spent in the forests,” “long stretches of back road trails,” and “sitting alone under moss-covered trees,” calling it "club music for misty mornings, towering redwood canopies, and overcast skies above uninhabited terrain."

Since the release of Echo Earth, Thompson has since released the remix album Echo Versions, which features "refracted" renditions of his work by producers PkaCarl, MC/beatmaker Emeska, and pslzy, just to name a very few. Proceeds from this album will go directly to the contributing artists and also donated to the Black Lives Matter Movement, NAACP, and the ACLU.
