Amp Fiddler - 2017 Interview


An interview with Amp Fiddler

Joesph ‘Amp’ Fiddler is a legend amongst lovers of funk music whose first solo album ‘Waltz of A Ghetto Fly’ released in 2004 still stands out as a classic album. Amp Fiddler has been through a lot, both personally and professionally yet he has grown through his experiences to go on and create great music. Last year’s album ‘Motor City Booty’ received critical acclaim, with great remixes too to add to the dancefloor vibes. Amp is back, about to do a tour this year, playing some great gigs such as Southport Weekender festival in June and European tour.

What do you think about funk music right now? Is it progressing into new forms?
I think funk is making its way back gradually and there are a few artists that are sticking their neck out to do something different. I think that it’s going to take more kids to come through with new forms, but I think that it’s getting better again. I never expected it to saturate the market, but as long as we see kids that are singers and rappers who are continuously creating funk music again it will always be here and create an audience.

You’ve worked with some great artists, is there anyone that you would love to work with right now?
I’d love to work with Kendrick Lemar and Bruno Mars would be cool too. I did a session with Hiroshi Tomoto who’s from Japan; it’s interesting that funk is big in some places in Japan. I’m always keeping my eyes open for someone that may not even be involved with funk that might want to get involved. For years I’ve been writing funk with Raphael Saadiq and now I’ve met Stuart Zender (the bass player for Jamiroquai) who I’ve played with and who I’m looking forward to working with. I like a lot of English artists and a bunch of artists that are heavy into funk. I’ve never met Roni Size but I’d love to work with him.
