Detroit's own AMP FIDDLER reworks classic funk into a smooth and refreshing modern sound. As Ink Blot Magazine says: "Inheritance is a dangerous thing, be it money or knowledge. As next in line to Sly and Stevie, AMP FIDDLER'S position is precarious. But his knowledge is well-earned - Fiddler spent 12 years as a keyboard player for George Clinton and the P Funk All Stars and has done stints with artists from the new breed including Dwele and Maxwell. Whether learned or instinctive, Fiddler's voice, on first airing, seems to have the same roots as these Soul legends. But while he does delve into the clouded funk terrain pioneered and crystallised by Sly Stone his own take hybridizes traditional soul and funk with modern r&b and dance. Most importantly, Fiddler's songs possess a melodicism rare in the new soul generation." With TORTURED SOUL: Tortured Soul is music that will move you. It's a new concept in the world of house music: it's live. The instrumentation is simple and organic: drums, electric bass, vintage keys, and soulful vocals. Tortured Soul filters club sounds like Afro Beat and Samba through a lens of jazzy House and American Soul to reflect intense grooves evocative of Jamiroquai, Stevie Wonder, the New Deal, and Fela Kuti.
