Jamie Lidell has announced a set of shows for his upcoming self-titled album that will take him through Europe and the U.S. with a stop in Instanbul, Turkey in between. Before you stop to think that you don't want to see another show of some button-pusher buried behind laptop computers and gear, Jamie has this to tell you:

"I'm revving up the boxes to push more buttons than your average electronic bear. Bringing the burning machine funk back to the floor so you can get your dance on. Digging into that bag of hooks so you can get your sing on. Aaahhhhhh push it!”

Jamie Lidell's funk-electronic innovation will be released next year, on Feb. 18/19 via Warp Records. The man-machine will style and define the new funk prophecy with fresh sounds from his new home studio. “I referenced a lot of the analogue synth tones of the records I really love. The question isn’t electronic music or not, it’s what are you trying to say with the electronics you choose,” he said about the new music.

Check out an advance single with the song "What A Shame" above. It has this sub-rhythm overdrive backdrop to it, a combination of bass, synths and rhythms that will get you reaching for the volume and cranking the bass depth.
