Ayro Electronic Lovefunk
- Words: Dan Sicko
- Label: Omoamusic
With a title sounding every bit like his own little genre, Jeremy Ellis springs forth with a fiery blend of broken beats, r&b, pop and jazz styles. Motown and Transmat influences are definitely present, making for a neat encapsulation of all things Detroit, but Ellis's music also measures up against that of another petite writer/arranger/producer/performer out of Minneapolis. Electronic Lovefunk comes off as a synthesized whole, due in large part to its seamless structure: Ellis has amazingly interpolated the beats between the big vocal numbers on the album, making for an excellent mix and mind-blowing listening experience. This is to say nothing of his perfect paring of simple, heartfelt love songs wih complicated rhythms. This combination is so right, and the grooves so tight, you may not notice the decades of musicianship coming through in his solos.
