Half of former discotheque duo Super Collider, Jamie Lidell is just as convincing fronting chart-storming anthems as he is making homemade soul to soothe.
His solo projects build brooding soundscapes using one mic, his soulful strains and stadium sized percussion made by his two hands. Forget the man on the corner with tambourines strapped to his feet; Jamie Lidell is a one-man band. On the flipside, his collaborations with Simian Mobile Disco, Atrak, and Baby Elephant and David Byrne prove he can dish out dance hits.
Straddling the two with the bubbling funk of new cut, Walk Right Back, expect an eclectic selection of smooth cuts and thumping electronica. He plays Gorilla in Manchester on October 28th.
Presented by Metropolis.
