Lab Overview

We’re always on the search for music like this, but Numero seem to serve up a comp of this stuff every couple of years like clockwork (ahem… we’ll take a repress of Personal Space any day now fellas). Billed as a collection of “self-actualized artists and visionaries reflecting and refracting their own interpretations” of the new visionary black music pioneered by Prince and P-Funk in the late 70s and early 80s, Visible and Invisible Persons Distributed In Space collects ten rare private press vessels of afrofuturist funk and sci-fi soul, each easily worth three figures (or more, if you can find any of them) on the second hand market. Needless to say the songs are bubbling with that lo-fi outsider funk vibe that we just can’t get enough of. While I find it endearing, “Just Wish You Were Here” is admittedly a curious choice for side 1 track 1; had the rest of the office looking at me like “WTF are we listening to” but the record gets REALLY good after that. Check out “First Time” by T. Dyson & Company, “Candles Tribe” by Candles, “Now You Sit Alone” by LaRhonda LeGette and Errol Stubbs’ “Spaced Out On Your Love” (this is the type of record I would have eagerly pitched up and looped into the sort of wannabe Just Blaze stadium beats I was making 15 years ago, maybe if I’d heard this back then I’d be on a PJ with Kanye and not slaving away at the Turntable Lab review desk right now). Best of all, the album packaging folds out into a futuristic gold pyramid (check the pics). Recommended.
