So there was another Jamie Lidell gig last night, this time at the Metro Club on Oxford Street (forgot to tell anyone here I know).
Jamie Lidell "Multiply" - One does not reasonably expect great modern soul music to come out of Warp Records (home of Autechre, Aphex Twin, and Prefuse73), but here it is, possibly the best soul record of the year and it's by a white guy from England.
Jamie Lidell's songs are clearly reverential of 60s/70s soul music, but are arranged and recorded under the influence of hip hop and electronic dance music.

 Jamie Lidell - PopMatters Concert Review
But for what it's worth, Jamie Lidell is balls out brilliant, a mad hatter collision of soulful creativity, the kind of person so frenetically pregnant with ideas that you expect him to explode onstage or, at the very least, get forcibly taken back to his home planet for blowing his cover here on earth.
But Lidell rallied, opting for the gorgeous nudity of his voice, belting out his songs unadorned, performing his set solely on the force of the thigh-quivering honey in his pipes.
Lidell's effortless erasure of the opposition we have in our heads between organic soul music and allegedly alienating technology is testament to his credentials as a feral visionary.

 Jamie Lidell: Multiply: Pitchfork Review   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-10)
A significant break from Jamie Lidell's prior work both as a solo laptop artist on Warp and as one half of Super_Collider (Chilean techno terrorist Christian Vogel carries the other half of that amulet), its breezy soul had me dreaming up back stories.
Maybe Lidell did some Logic voodoo on a vault of old soul reels and repurposed a bunch of lesser-heard Motown gems to fit a glitchier, Warp-friendly palette.
Where Lidell's prior solo work enjoyed a well-earned reputation for being difficult and forbidding, Multiply is among the most accessible records Warp has ever released.

 Super_Collider - Raw Digits - RRR002 - erutufon|nofuture
Lidell took vocal inspiration from bedroom smoothies like Marvin Gaye and Prince, his voice gliding, swooning, hoopin' and hollerin' like a man possessed by the night.
Jamie Lidell, having enjoyed success as an acclaimed techno producer on Subhead, Sativae, Mosquito and Tresor, released his debut album Muddlin' Gear on Warp / Spymania in 2000, as well as playing many exciting solo live shows, and doing remixes for artists such as Herbert.
Recorded by Jamie Lidell with Cristian Vogel, it's a superbly wrought, imaginary robo-funkalbum that could only be brought into being by a process of studio dicing, stretching, compressing, inverting, processing and reprocessing.

Lidell's live shows feature outrageous costumes and visual effects, in addition to his myriad supply of samples, loops and sound effects.

However, as Jamie Lidell's distinctive music starts up - banks of electronic vocal harmonies and massive P-Funk basslines - the crouching figure remains in place.
Lidell uses his mouth as a drum machine, his tonsils as a sampler and the visor-man wields some sort of sonic boom, as the beats sends bottles flying from their shelves.
Lidell is shrewd enough to seduce the crowd with over an hour of heavily adulterated dance music before wooing them with purer soul.

 Jamie Lidell's music draws from a wide range of styles | The San Diego Union-Tribune
Lidell cites funk and soul as inspirations, but also “noise, jazz, blues, techno, house, glam, dirtcore, unterbeat, the big ole pop, the lesser known pitch touch, rock 'n' rules, the hop, the fug, all that.”
From the subtle soul of “Games of Fools” (in which Lidell sounds like a young Sam Cooke) to the Rick James-esque “When I Come Around” (complete with hand claps and 1980s keyboards), the disc covers a dizzying array of song styles but manages to hold to together as a complete whole.
A Jamie Lidell concert is singing, dancing and performance art all wrapped into one: “When I play live, I try and just let the music flood out like tea from a bag.”

 Jamie Lidell: Multiply (2005): Reviews
One half of the electronica outfit Super_Collider, producer Jamie Lidell returns with a second solo album that finds him in an unlikely new role: that of a soul singer.
Although Lidell's voice lacks muscle and butter, he knows how to launch a falsetto, and the beats on "A Little Bit More" and "The City" should not be played within earshot of anyone wearing a pacemaker.
Outside the charismatic skill of Lidell's shapeshifting vocals and his forward-looking arrangements, the actual songs of Multiply aren't of as indelible an essence as the classics that they imitate.

 XLR8R - JAMIE LIDELL: SING IT BACK   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-10)
Jamie Lidell was nearing the end of his live performance at Montreal’s MUTEK festival last June when techno producer Mike Shannon turned to his collaborator Jay Hunsberger and asked, “Do you want my computer?” Hunsburger looked at him quizzically.
Lidell is a consummate performer; when he’s onstage, it’s tempting to say he’s less a musician than a performance artist.
Warp Records, according to Lidell, is at a loss with how exactly to market this phase of the erstwhile drill & bass rebel’s career; he claims the label, perhaps as a last resort, is attempting to pigeonhole him as a sort of techno Beck figure.

What keeps Lidell from massive cheesiness a la Jamiroquai is evident on "The City," the only real link here to Lidell’s previous crazy-beats-heavy and effects-laden solo album and his work with Supercollider.
I'll confess that I don't really know that much about Jamie's previous works, though I've begun to notice his featured tracks a little bit more on his work with Herbert and his big band (which if you haven't heard, is another terrific piece of rivialists music with a modern day twist).
Jamie Lidell's Multiply is the kind of recording I dream about getting in the mail.

 * Dusted Reviews - Jamie Lidell *
Lidell’s steez, as it was in Super_collider (his collab with Cristian Vogel, which bore two highly esteemed albums of its own), is to funk things up digitally.
Both of these are good things, and in Lidell’s case, he identifies a mastery of form that few if any contemporary musicians have managed to tackle.
The temptation would surely exist for Lidell to cannibalize the parts of music he liked and just copy and paste them out; he certainly has the skills to do so, and fuck history over in the process.

 Jamie Lidell - Multiply : album review
Jamie Lidell's reputation has largely been built on the back of his Supercollider partnership with Christian Vogel, his well received Muddlin' Gear album for Warp and some spectacular recent live performances, all of which have built Multiply into an eagerly anticipated album.
It's interesting to compare Jamie Lidell with his British white soul contemporaries, and revealing to note that nobody seems to be pushing the funk in quite the same way at the moment.
Lidell can achieve all these things - his is a rare talent, demanding to be heard.

Lidell has a killer voice and the perfect music to go with it.
But even though Jamie Lidell has a voice a lot like Otis and many other old-school soul singers, that doesn't mean he should be appreciated less.
Lidell has other things going for him, namely the music he sings over.

English guy Jamie Lidell is certainly a name people are going to be familiar in time to come with judging by ‘Multiply’ on Warp Records.
Jamie Lidell has been spellbinding people at his live shows having played at Sonar festival and Ether Festival last year and he recently played at The Faversham in Leeds.
What’s clear is that Jamie Lidell is indeed a talent and something for Brits to feel proud of.

 Oh My Rockness ((Jamie Lidell))
UK/German resident Jamie Lidell may be on Warp Records, but this is no Aphex Twin (or even Maximo Park for that matter).
Moving front and center to the foreground is Lidell's powerfully smooth voice that would make even the men of Motown proud.
Regardless which soulful singer Lidell is the Second Coming of, it's a fact that he has a genre-busting voice anyone can appreciate -- even tech geeks.

(Jamie is also seen under four legs, with notorious Brighton band Balzac.) He begins more work with the computers.
Jamie spent 1369 long half days recording his solo album Muddlin' Gear for Spymania records, home of some of Squarepusher’s first vinyl efforts and purveyors of a wide range of...well, less sophisticated stuff.
Built on analogue sounds, the album mixes the studio approaches of the Radiophonic Workshop, whose influence he acknowledged as "good", and Todd Docksteader, the American experimentalist who Jamie admired for his “control and humour”.

 DOA - Jamie Lidell - Multiply
For anyone who thinks Lidell’s tributes to the past are unbecoming coming from a skinny white guy who recently appeared on the cover of “The Wire” in a cardigan and some silly sunglasses, drop your reservations: There’s nary a hint of irony or mockery on Multiply.
When Lidell does mix his blue-eyed past with his red-eyed present, the results are so enticing you wish he’d try it more often.
Lidell is seemingly dead serious about his turn as a soul man, and Multiply is not just the year’s most adventurous album, it’s one of its most melodic, soulful, and engaging as well.

 GIGWISE.com | Britain's Answer To Prince? Jamie Lidell   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-10)
As a former half of electro-funk outfit Super_Collider you might have heard of Lidell, you might even have his first album 'Muddlin' Gear', a record that his label Warp describe as “digital derangement and deformed R’n’B”.
Lidell, and his work is a constant dichotomy.
It’s not surprising then with live shows which mix art, film and music that his stage heroes are the likes of Prince and Bowie, as he tries to veer away from being a kid in a t-shirt standing behind a laptop.

 slant // magazine.com: Music Review - Jamie Lidell: Multiply
But while Jones and The DAP Kings are somewhat limited by their attempt to meticulously recreate a flawless '60s soul vibe, Lidell infuses his tribute to classic soul with elements of modern dance music in a way that, if not revolutionary, nonetheless sounds progressive.
Though there are elements of Otis Redding in his phrasing (in the way the repeated refrain of "so tired" on the title track is slurred to "soultied"), Lidell's voice most often recalls a hybrid of Terence Trent D'Arby and CCR-era John Fogerty, a ragged and world-weary but still perfectly controlled instrument.
Lidell's reputation for spectacular, lunatic live shows suggests that Multiply may only hint at his capability, which is impressive indeed for an album that, in its best moments, draws comparisons to at-peak Prince and, at its worst, lands in the respectable company of Nikka Costa’s Everybody Got Their Something.

 Silver's Boogaloo: Jamie Lidell is crazy
Not something you’d typically associate with the esteemed Warp Records, the new Jamie Lidell album has to be one of the most exhilerating releases from the electronic giants back catalogue.
Lidell was formerly one half of techno-funk outfit Super_Collider with Cristian Vogel, and anyone who heard his singing contribution to Matthew Herbert’s Big Band project, will know the strength, diversity and passion of Lidell’s emotive vocal range.
A refreshing approach to electronica, Lidell is completely and utterly in a league of his own.

It's been said by many that Jamie Lidell was the musical sensation of 2005.
Lauded for his improvised, soulfully chopped-to-hell live jams, Jamie's proving what a nice boy he is by bringing his one man party on the road through the states.
If his shows last year in Europe and the U.S. were any indication (and they freaking were) this is going to be the tour of the year, no doubt.

 Jamie Lidell: Multiply - PopMatters Music Review
A middle-aged white Englishman sporting thick nerd glasses, a scraggly beard and a cardy you suspect was knitted for him by his mum, Jamie's tax inspector exterior hides all the passionate intensity and delirious falsetto action you could ask for.
The bleed-over of shared mics so prevalent in the latter was apparently a technique employed when Lidell got together with fellow Berlin residents Mocky (mainly on bass and backing vocals) and Gonzales (keyboard and organ) to flesh out his laptop sketches into something alive yet not too polished.
Nostalgic traditionalists, moreover, will be unable to deny Lidell his chops after the genuinely gorgeous "What's the Use", the effortlessly lithe singing and finger snaps of "Music Will Not Last" and the back-to-basics closer "Game For Fools", which shows that his songwriting and delivery have the sensitivity and conviction to stand alone.

Lidell in Wire magazine and heard only great things about his live show, but I somehow missed the connection between that soulful voice and one of the most entertaining outings I’ve had all year.
As I said before, Jamie Lidell is British, Musical Genius, etc. So imagine a handsome Brit sporting a white polo shirt with a white towel draped around his neck, fl rim glasses on, throwing down some of the most talented beatboxing you’ve ever heard.
Lidell’s hyper-energetic show isn’t for you, Four Tet is still worth it.
