Spotlight on for the long awaited debut album by Tokyo Dawn's first lady Amalia! 'Art Slave' is a colorful manifesto for the passion of art, the strength of heart and the need for funk in all stages of life.
Amalia bravely commands her own starship and pays homage to the strong women of soul who catalyzed her ingenuity such as Chaka Khan, Sheila E, Eartha Kitt and Betty Davis. Produced by the Swedish funk extraordinaire Opolopo, 'Art Slave' is sonically and musically influenced by late 80s/early 90s New Jack Swing and Boogie, but definitely sets its own standards. AD Bourke, Atjazz & Son Of Kick deliver the bonus remixes for this release.
