Echo Dek is a remix album by the Scottish alternative rock band Primal Scream. It was released in October 1997 and followed the group's fifth studio album by less than four months. It peaked at number forty-three on the UK Album Chart[3] and number ninety-seven on the Japanese Oricon Album Chart.[4]

The album is an experimental dub remix of Vanishing Point. The album was extensively reworked with additional production by English record producer Adrian Sherwood. Sherwood sampled Jamaican reggae musician Prince Far I on "Wise Blood". Eight of Vanishing Point's tracks were remixed for the album - two mixes of "Stuka" appear - "Burning Wheel", "If They Move Kill 'Em" and "Motörhead" are the three songs not included.
