Lab Overview

It’s difficult to look past the legacy of Prince when discussing music from Minnesota, but this extensive Numero Group compilation is FULL of pre and post-Purple One joints that really shine the light on the futuristic fusion funk that was happening in the city. Spread over 4 LPs are 32 “slick, black, technologically advanced” sounds from the land of 10,000 lakes, and you get a clear view of the impact the “tight-knit” community had on American dance music by “varnishing futuristic funk with guitar rock’s glamorous sheen” Check out tracks from 94 East, Flyte Tyme, Alexander O’Neal, Mind & Matter collective, Andre Cymone, and more, and the ambitious release is accompanied by a 30,000 word, 144-page hardbound book that details the stories behind the rare, unreleased tracks.
