Dâm-Funk

As a DJ/selector, Dām attracts the most discerning Boogie Funk afficionados within driving distance of his storied Monday-night Funkmosphere parties. But it's not just collectors at the bar toasting to the melodic sounds. Anyone who grooves to the likes of Slave, Aurra, early Prince, Prelude Records and the like, will get a dose of those groups' unknown contemporaries - more obscure but equally Funk-worthy.

The next phase of the Ambassador's mission is his debut album 'Toeachizown': continuing the classic West Coast tradition into today's scene with Dām's own original 'Modern-Funk' compositions. By plugging in his arsenal of vintage synths and drum machines, Dām channels the galactic harmonies of his inspiration into his own brand of new boogie.
Stones Throw Records' like-minded honcho Peanut Butter Wolf brought Dām on to the team to glide into the future with his unique, synth and bass-driven vibe. It's a promising new chapter for Southern Cali space funk.

DâM-FunK is the epitome of funk. Ever since debuting with Stones Throw in 2008, DaM-FunK has become one of the genres most passionate proselytizers, out to save it from devilish depictions of cartoonish caricature. To Dam, funk is a way of living, "a feeling of struggle and staying cool through it all." In 2013, he released his celebrated partnership with hip-hop's Snoop Dogg titled '7 Days of Funk'. He is here to make sure that never comes to pass. As he puts it, "funk is the underdog, the black sheep of black music," and if that's true, DâM-FunK is its shepherd.
