One House Artists

Detroit based Amp Fiddler is a celebrated soul/funk musician who has shared stages and studios with everyone from Prince and George Clinton to Primal Scream and underground Detroit producer Moodyman. Amp also played a pivotal role in bringing Slum Village to global attention, and was a friend and collaborator with their producer, the late J Dilla. His 2018 album Return Of The Ghetto Fly was met with critical acclaim. It was released on Moodymann’s Mahogani Music with features from Andres, T3, Neco Redd, Louie Vega and Moodymann among others.

In Amp’s newest live project – Amp Fiddler ft. A Drummer From Detroit he collaborates with old friend, collaborator and Mahogani Music label mate Andres aka A Drummer From Detroit on live percussion and electronics. In a city full of musical heroes, Andres is one of Detroit’s greatest. Aside from releasing some of the most iconic Detroit house music around since the late ’90s and performing as Slum Village’s DJ, he is also an incredible percussionist and among others has collaborated with Erykah Badu (on her track Didn’t Cha Know). Andres doesn’t just make house, as his seminal Andres II album and subsequent releases prove, he’s just as adept making hip-hop, downtempo boogie and more. He’s worked with Theo Parrish, Moodymann, J Dilla and more in his time, and recently started a new record label to reissue some of his lost classics.

Their collaborative project includes live performances, with percussion, keys and singing, of some of their standout tracks and new as-yet-unreleased music.

In 2019 they became the first act to perform live on TV from a planetarium when their hour-long set was televised on French channel Arte to more than half a million people. Watch it here!

They headlined the Mahogani Music night at Gilles Peterson’s Worldwide Festival in Sete. The audio is to be released later this year including live performances of “I’m Doing Fine” and “I Get Moody Sometimes” with Moodymann.

They headlined Insomnia Festival in Norway.
