New Master Sounds

On Sunday, May 24th @ 3PM, DJ Imaginary Radio speaks with guitarist, Eddie Roberts, of the British funk/soul/blues/rock quartet, The New Mastersounds.

As a band, and as individuals, the New Mastersounds have collaborated with an array of musicians DJs and producers, including: Soul Rebels Brass Band, Lou Donaldson (Blue Note), Corinne Bailey Rae (EMI), Quantic (Tru Thoughts), Carleen Anderson (Young Disciples / Brand New Heavies), Keb Darge & Kenny Dope (Kay Dee Records), John Arnold (Ubiquity), Mr Scruff (Ninja Tuna), Snowboy (Ubiquity), Fred Everything (2020 Vision), Andy Smith (Portishead), James Taylor (JTQ), LSK (Faithless), and Karl Denson (Lenny Kravitz, Greyboy AllStars).

The hypnotic afrobeat of the band's latest release, Shake It, draws heavily from the psychedelic sounds of 70’s Ethiopian funk. Lamar Williams Jr.’s lyrical mantra about life’s hardships gives way to a frenzied guitar and horns workout.
