DJ Jamie Lidell – With His Voice

Jamie Lidell is so badass, he don’t need no stinky synths:

Bjork did something like this on her Medulla album, which was created almost entirely by vocal parts. And Jon Brion and other musicians do a similar act where they string a series of instrument lines together recording each individually live.

But, first, it’s really hard to do.

Second, an amazing artistic transition when what you’re expecting is only Stevie Wonder-style funk and you end up with home grown electro, and damn good at that.

Third, it seems a little gimmicky, but I can’t help but admit that it’s awesome.

I fee an Ableton session coming on…
