Jamie Lidell

With his band Super Collider, Lidell made supremely funky EDM; as a solo artist, he has veered into retro-minded R&B. The best bits here goose jhericurled synth-funk with modern electronics (the hooky "What a Shame"). But Lidell seems most interested in Xeroxing old Prince and Roger Troutman moves. He does it well, at times, but he usually makes you want to YouTube up the originals.
