UK-born, Nashville-based electronic composer Jamie Lidell, has long confounded those looking to peg his sound as either electronic, acoustic or exotic pop – he’s all of those things. Drawing from unsettled soul and throwback funk, only to reinvent these through electrifying performances, Jamie Lidell is a ticking time bomb! Since signing with esteemed British label Warp in 2005 for his second album, Multiply, the singular artist has built up a broad following thanks to his soul-infused electronic beats layered atop falsetto vocals, resulting in an intense and slightly psychedelic sound. His just released, self-titled, fifth album, is his brightest and most feel-good yet. Lidell returns to MUTEK after a memorable festival closer in 2004.
