Amp Fiddler

  • Sunday | 02.11.14
  • 7.30pm
  • Band on the Wall, Manchester
  • We welcome Detroit’s Amp Fiddler back to Manchester for the first time in 7 years.

    Amp Fiddler is a living legend. More than a backing musician for the iconic Enchantment, more than a keyboardist for George Clinton’s P-Funk, more than a collaborator on Maxwell’s eponymous debut, Urban Hang Suite, more than a man who introduced producer extraordinaire J Dilla to the tools that would later place him among the greatest, Amp Fiddler is a top-notch solo artist in his own right with two instant classics of independent soul music. Waltz of a Ghettofly released in 2004 and 2006’s Afrostrut are modern-day Detroit soul funk at its panoramic finest made great by one of that city’s very own.

    New release, Basementality 2, a sequel to his 2002 classic Basementality combines social commentary with sonic ingenuity to create a stellar compilation of tracks that celebrate the musical heritage of the Motor City, from the soulful to the electronic.
