Jamie Lidell Biography

Last updated: 04/29/2008

White British producer and vocalist Jamie Lidell came to prominence thanks to Super_Collider's Head On (Medicine, 1999) and Raw Digits (Rise Robots Rise, 2002), two collaborations with Christian Vogel that were instrumental in fusing soul crooning and ambient techno.

Lidell, who had relocated to Berlin, debuted solo with Muddlin Gear (2000), but it was only five years later, on his second solo album, Multiply (Warp, 2005), that his vision matured: injecting different brands of old-fashioned soul music (from Tamla Motown to Stax) into the body of techno music.
