Funki Porcini - On

James Braddell AKA Funki Porcini returns with his 5th album for Ninja Tune, his first since 2002's 'Fast Asleep'. Mixing together surreal jazz, found noise, synthetic strangeness and dream logic, 'On' is as beautiful and odd as anything he has made. Released on 3rd May (1st June in USA), you can get a free album mini-mix download on SoundCloud:

Order the CD via Ninjashop and the first 20 orders receive an exclusive signed copy: Ninjashop (USA) / Ninjashop (RoW)

Braddell could be said to be something of a trip hop pioneer, operating out of the Uterous Goldmine Studio, his 'Hed Phone Sex' album in 1995 brought dark surrealism to sampler music, and pre-dated DJ Shadow's first album 'Endtroducing'. All of this helped bring in a golden era of sampler based music, although on 'On', more live instrumentation is used than any other of the Funki Porcini albums previously. The greatest provocateur and humorist of the early Ninja period, Funki re-animates with his sound intact yet sounding utterly contemporary. Funki Porcini has promised to not let it go so long before his next release . . .
