Jamie Lidell Multiply Additions
- Words: Tony Ware
- Label: Warp
Glitched-up crooner Jamie Lidell has commented that there is but a thin partition between arrangement and derangement. And with this remix and reinterpretation EP, the mercurial torch singer/bearer lets his colleagues push the source material's honest Stax homage into darker, more disconnected territory. The rhythmic regurgitations by Four Tet, Luke Vibert, and Matthew Herbert are dilated and dusky compared to the originally splashy, shimmering material. Freeform Reform, Mocky, and Herbert-the latter two kind souls assisted Lidell with the original, Multiply-even take it down a notch to a more pushing-air pace. In contrast, Lidell's live piano takes celebrate the purity of his English blues.
