Prophet

In 1984 Prophet released ‘Right On Time’ - full of mind-blowing leftfield boogie, it now has a dedicated cult following and can be found buried deep within vintage record stores or changing hands for hundreds of dollars online.

But now, after 34 years, Prophet is finally making his return. His new album ‘Wanna Be Your Man’ is utterly unique. Produced by Stones Throw beat maker Mndsgn, the album’s ten tracks of modern funk, pop and r’n’b, nods to Prince, Michael Jackson and James Brown. It’s an album that sounds simultaneously like retro hits and the music of the future.
