 Numero Group presents 'Purple Snow: Forecasting The Minneapolis Sound' – the pre-Prince compilation of Minneapolis funk behind the city’s timeless sound. The boogie-driven fusion marrying classic funk principles with rock guitar that would eventually bolt out of the Twin Cities and go on to drive subsequent decades of r&b and pop production is never really discussed in great detail past the iconic works and faces of Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis, Morris Day and Prince. The Purple Snow compilation stands to change that with a body of work that spans over a decade of white hot musical innovation fresh from the land of 10,000 lakes. This is the sound and circumstance that gestated the relentless groove the region later became known for across the world.
