Jamie Lidell is from his fantastically funky new self-titled release. Overall, the album mines the glory days of 80′s funk. All your favorite electro and classic funk touch points are here: The Gap Band, The Time, Midnight Star, The System, and of course, Prince. On “Do Yourself A Faver” he knocks on the door of the house of funk built by the by the influential Ohio band Zapp on the song “More Bounce To The Ounce” and dances all the way through like one of the best Soul Train lines dances you’ve ever been a part of. Below, listen to = and in exchange for your e-mail address – download “Do Yourself A Faver.”Today marks the debut of XPN’s Gotta Hear Song Of The Week, a song we love so much we just had to share it with you with the hopes that you will love it as much as we do. “Do Yourself A Faver” by British soul/funk/electronica musician
