With Daft Punk splitting this week it seemed like the perfect opportunity to share one of my favourite tracks from Edwin Birdsong 'Phiss-Phizz' whose 1979 song ‘Cola Bottle Baby’ was sampled in the magical robot duo’s ‘Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger’ hit.

Birdsong was an accomplished solo artist, as well as a prolific session musician and producer who worked with like Stevie Wonder and Roy Ayers. It was a tough choice between sharing ‘Phiss-Phizz’ or ‘Rapper Dapper Snapper’ — both of which are 🔥🔥🔥 but something about P-P edged it.  

This weeks portrait was done with airbrush, coloured pencil, ink and pastels.
