OUT FEBRUARY 19 ON WARP RECORDS
Known for bringing together disparate musical influences, Jamie Lidell cites Mtume, Cameo, New Jack Swing, Bobby Brown and George Clinton as inspirations for the new release. “I referenced a lot of the analogue synth tones of the records I really love,” he says, “the question isn’t electronic music or not, it’s what are you trying to say with the electronics you choose.” Lidell recently moved from New York to Nashville and set up an expansive recording studio in his new home. “The whole house has become a recording studio,” Lidell says, “the entire album was recorded and mixed at home. I’m proud of that.”
