From Jamie Lidell’s Jamie Lidell

WARP

Liner notes: Old-school heat and future-funk cool combine on this furious mix of hard electro-beats and Lidell’s frenetic multitracked singing.

Behind the music: The Nashville-based Brit has worked with Christian Vogel as half of Super Collider and has collaborated with Beck, Feist, and Simian Mobile Disco.

Check it out if you like: Legendary R&B masters like Cameo and Bobby Brown, or modern-day peers like Nick Waterhouse and Michael Kiwanuka.
