In addition to being the father of Flight Tower lead vocalist and Dirty Projectors keyboardist-percussionist Felicia Douglass, The Senator has worked as a Grammy-winning record producer and mix engineer with Aaliyah, Aretha Franklin, Grimes, Jay-Z, Justin Timberlake, Led Zeppelin, Missy Elliot, Pharrell, Roxy Music, The Rolling Stones and more. His raw edge and heavy funk bass have become a couple of his many signatures, and on “Lose Your Love” he transforms the track by tapping into the Minneapolis Sound.
Watch the visualizer for “Lose Your Love” (Jimmy “The Senator” Douglass Remix) HERE:
In an interview on NPR’s Weekend Edition, Felicia Douglass compared co-writing “Lose Your Love” to being like a kid in a candy store, deciding which lyrics to lay over Dave Longstreth’s harmonic and melodic fabric. The FADER said, “The result is something weird and endearing, a song that builds on the airy, brightly-colored Windows Open.”
Flight Tower marks the second in a sequence of five EPs that Dirty Projectors will release this year. Each sung by a different band member before Maia Friedman, Felicia Douglass, Kristin Slipp, and Dave Longstreth convene together on the fifth, the group’s sound will continue to evolve with every new offering.
More details on the next three releases will be announced soon.
