Joseph Anthony “Amp” Fiddler, who sadly passed away on December 17, 2023, was an American multi-instrumentalist, singer, songwriter, and record producer hailing from Detroit, Michigan. His musical journey spanned decades, weaving through vibrant threads of funk, soul, dance, and electronica, leaving an indelible mark on the soundscapes of the world.

Born in 1958, Amp's musical passion ignited early. By 16, he was already immersed in music, honing his skills on keyboards and immersing himself in the rich soul and funk tapestry of Detroit. This foundation propelled him into the bustling scene, landing him a crucial role in the iconic group Enchantment. His talents soon caught the attention of the legendary George Clinton, leading to a decade-long stint with both Parliament and Funkadelic, further shaping his musical identity.

While the 1980s and early 90s saw Amp Fiddler leave his mark on the musical landscape as a collaborator and session musician, his solo debut, “With Respect” (1990), under the moniker Mr. Fiddler, truly announced his arrival as a leading artist. This soulful funk exploration opened doors, paving the way for his groundbreaking masterpiece, “Scratch Orchestra” (1999).

This genre-bending album, marrying DJing with live musicianship, became a watershed moment. Blending funk, jazz, hip-hop, and electronic elements, it not only showcased Amp's creative genius but also established him as a pioneer of the “nu-jazz” movement. “Scratch Orchestra” went on to receive a Mercury Prize nomination and cemented Amp's reputation as a forward-thinking innovator.

Throughout the following decades, Amp continued to push boundaries. He released a string of acclaimed albums like “Afro Strut” (2006) and “Inspiration Information” (2008), collaborating with diverse talents like Sly and Robbie and Martina Topley-Bird. He even composed music for film and television, leaving his sonic imprint on projects like “Snatch” and “Charlie's Angels.”

Beyond his own artistic pursuits, Amp actively nurtured the music scene. He founded the Ninja Tune sub-label “Scratching Fingers,” discovering and promoting talents like DJ Shadow. He regularly performed DJ sets and live shows across the globe, captivating audiences with his infectious energy and masterful blend of sounds.

Sadly, 's journey ended in December 2023. However, his legacy as a musical alchemist lives on. He leaves behind a vibrant body of work that continues to inspire and influence generations of musicians and music lovers. From the soulful grooves of Detroit to the innovative soundscapes of electronica, Amp Fiddler's musical odyssey is a testament to his boundless creativity, unwavering passion, and dedication to pushing the boundaries of sound.
