EDITORS’ NOTES

Though Jamie Lidell has had an artistic metamorphosis with nearly every record his name appears on, Multiply would ultimately provide a thematic blueprint for all his work to come. Still clinging to the edgy, experimental sounds of 2000's Muddlin Gear and his work with Cristian Vogel as Super Collider, Multiply sees Lidell perfecting a jittering, funky kind of neo-soul with glimpses of dark and glitchy techno influences. Still, the title track is as blue-eyed as can be, with a chorus that would become a sing-along cadence to many of his one-man live performances. Though he'd channel even more of his Sly & The Family Stone influences on his next record, Jim, the emblematic nature of Multiply expresses Lidell at his core: funky, soulful, and just a little wilder than most.
