jamie lidell / lee's palace, toronto / april 21st

Jamie Lidell is a brilliant maniac. He transformed / remixed all his soulful Multiply album tracks live and blew us away with improve techno. It was definitely one of the best live shows ever. His playful stage presence is something that can not me missed.

"He was very impressive live. Amazing voice and the beatboxing improv was mind blowing. He'd build entire tracks from looping and layering his voice and a few moog and micron synth lines. His obvious skill alone worked the crowd into a frenzy. I've never scene such an impressive performance by an 'electronic' musician."
