Better Living

A 8 track funk ep (32m 52s) — released February 4th 2013 on Pig Balls Records

Morris Chestnut is the funkier, soulier alter-ego of Joe Thompson, a musician and producer who's been writing and releasing music of all shapes and sizes for as long as he can remember.
From playing in bass and keyboards in blues and rock bands as a spotty youth to working as a producer for a number of mainstream dance DJs, it was only a matter of time before Joe returned to the purity of funk and soul as the basis of all grooves and the real roots of dance music as we know it.
Taking a cue from visionaries such as George Clinton and Afrika Bambaataa and following in the footsteps of cut'n'paste heroes such as The Avalanches and DJ Shadow, Joe donned his "Morris hat" and went burrowing through mountains of classic soul, funk and disco cuts looking for magical snippets of forgotten tracks and hidden gems to weave together with more modern elements of hip-hop, breaks and the rapidly growing nu-funk and ghettofunk scenes.
