RSR332 -Jamie Lidell – Soul Scientist Playing With Beck, Prince, and Prodigy

To loop or not to loop? Jamie talked about Beck producing his record, opening for Prince and Prodigy as a solo loop-based artist, hosting his Hanging Out With Audiophiles podcast, interviewing Spike Stent, and lots of great studio tricks!

My guest today is Jamie Lidell a Grammy nominated self described Soul Scientist who has been making all manner of noise since he was a teen.

His early outpourings were purest of techno until, rather unexpectedly, his voice emerged and he discovered a live looping style that took him around the world as a solo act opening as a one-man show for Beck, Bjork and James Brown. 

He has had several bands to play later albums and opened for Prince, Elton John and more. 

There was a whole lot of touring, much opening, much headlining. Much of a muchness really. Somewhat of a rambling man, he’s jumped all over the place, from Brighton to Berlin to New York to his current castle dwelling in Nashville. 

For the hunters, there’s plenty of music to be discovered, whether it’s from his first 9 EPs with Subhead to 2 LPs as Super_collider (with badass weirdo Cristian Vogel) to the rare work he pushed out as George Lister to a slew of solo Lidellian activity and there’s now his rather entertaining podcast of course. 

The pod goes by the name Hanging out with Audiophiles (although it has nothing to do with hi-fi really). The fun began in 2017 and has already featured some of the very best artists and producers in the business such as Mark Ronson, Four tet, Susan Rogers, Imogen Heap and many more. His YouTubing is showing signs of growth also. Let’s see. Yes, in case you were wondering, the sonic adventures continue. One never knows what’s next with this one.

Thanks so much to Anders at Adam Audio for making our introduction.
