Amp Fiddler

AmpFiddler 1 Amp FiddlerTo many Amp Fiddler would be one of the latest musical innovators coming out of Detroit alongside luminaries such as Jaydee, Carl Craig and Dwele. In fact he is one of the pioneers from the D. with a musical career spanning 20years. It began in 1983 when Amp replaced Bernie Worrell in the George Clinton’s P-Funk set up. It allowed him to escape the street drama of Detroit and learn from one of the masters. Amp toured with Clinton for 12 years and has also managed to work with artists such as Prince, Maxwell and Lucy Pearl. He also steered Jaydee of Slum Village to super producer stardom by teaching how to program beats. The p-funk and hip hop influences are part of the sound that is experienced in Amp Fiddler’s recent critically acclaimed EP’s Bass Mentality and Love & War. In these his house and Latin influences are evident. It is this versatility that makes his debut album so eagerly awaited.
