John Arnold has developed the energetic experimental sound of his debut full-length record, Neighborhood Science, into Style and Pattern a comprehensive new album of heavyweight future funk, charged with great songs and irresistibly cheeky and chunky instrumentals. Created and test-run over a series of live shows the album was inspired by direct interaction with crowds and dance floors around the world.
Helping him along the way are label mate Jeremy Ellis and Amp Fiddler band mate Paul Randolph who guests on “Rise Up” and “1234”, plus a crew of Puerto Rican percussionists and Tribe Recording artist Wendell Harrison. Crowned Best Artist at the second annual UK Hip Hop Awards Ninja Tune recording artist Ty flexes his lyrical dexterity over frantic beats and rude bass line on “Style and Pattern” (Nuff Version), the title track.
Since the release of his debut Arnold has developed a completely live, non-stop electronic show bridging the gap between DJ and producer. This “freestyle” technique was developed with label mate and Detroit neighbor Jeremy Ellis. Both are trained musicians and studio scientists. Performing and creating tracks live allowed Arnold to test run music on the dance floor in front of a crowd. These improvisational moments were the inspiration for the Style and Pattern album. “Most of the music for the album was born out of live performances. These freestyle shows involve creating music from scratch; playing beats on the Akai Mpc, looping them and playing keys on my guitar, while constantly looping and building,” explains Arnold. “It allows for true improvisation and I can explore all kinds of rhythms and music,” he adds.
“Top shelf dancefloor burner for the rough 'n' ready crowd... pure heavyweight future funk"
