Amp Fiddler: Basementality 2

It's been eight years since Amp Fiddler's last album (six since his collaboration album with Sly & Robbie) feeding his fans with every now and then guest appearances on projects including Trus'me and Hundred Strong. Last night Detroit's soul funk God set the music underground on fire with the announcement of a new project that dropped today.

If you recall, his first project in the new millennium that reintroduced the world to the one time Parliament / Funkadelic member, was the "Basementality EP". So breaking his silence with the release of "Basementality 2" just may be a sign of another rebirth and that we probably can expect more visibility from him in the near future.

Always keeping it soulful and funky, on part two, Mr. Fiddler steps slightly away from the "dancier" soul style he's been associated with in recent years giving a fresher and raw sound complete with heavy live instrumentation that incorporate elements of 60's soul, 70's funk and a little psychedelica. Even has a contribution from Raphael Saadiq on the track "Take It". Also include funk dance remix from L.A. based producer, musician Daniel Crawford. Long story short, the man is back and back with a vengeance. Take a listen and cop below.
