Roger Troutman aka Talkbox King

Roger Troutman (November 29, 1951 — April 25, 1999) was the lead singer of the band Zapp who helped spearhead the Funk movement and heavily influenced West Coast hip hop due to the scene’s heavy sampling of his music over the years. Troutman was well known for his use of the talkbox, a device that is connected to an instrument (frequently a keyboard) to create different vocal effects. Roger used a custom-made talkbox—the Electro Harmonix “Golden Throat,” as well as a Yamaha DX100 FM synthesizer. As both lead singer of Zappand in his subsequent solo releases, he scored a bevy of funk and R&B hits throughout the 1980’s.

VYG02 – Harvey Sutherland – Brothers EP

Emerging from Melbourne‘s hyper-creative inner-suburbs, armed to the teeth with analog synths and velvet grooves, Harvey Sutherland is undoubtedly one of the most exciting electronic producers bubbling down-under right now. He’s spent the last few years weaving through Melbourne’s vibrant underground scene, putting out kaleidoscopic sounds that have garnered support from Max Graef, Bradley Zero, Glenn Astro and Motor City Drum Ensemble.

His new EP, Brothers, is a four-track exploration through cloud-busting pads, lo-fi jazzy leads, cosmic moog basslines and 808 house-infused shuffles that is sure to lull any dancefloor into a trance-like state. The EP is out now on Andy Hart’s Voyage imprint, yet another awe-inspiring producer popping up in Melbourne at the moment.
