yeah, dam funk is the shit. I have to give Pipecock credit, I slept on this dude for a few weeks until he twisted my arm to check his shit out.

I have a copy of Rhythm Tracks IV and about half of it is bananas, the other half is alright. I still need to hunt down the other two records he has done.

i've seen him live a few times. some of my friends (http://beatelectric.blogspot.com/) used to do a regular boogie/disco night and brought him up. i dig the way he talks into a mic over all his songs. i honestly had no idea any of the stuff he was playing. it all sounded like rare zapp and roger unreleased tracks. maybe a lot of it was his own stuff?

still have yet to hear his album.

i kinda refused to believe he wasn't from the late '70s/early '80s when dudes at groove merchant were playing this

i just cant believe he didnt have a thread on ilx before -- pretty unique stuff to be confined to the end of a stones throw thread

zzz (deej), Wednesday, 24 June 2009 19:44 (4 years ago) Permalink

A few weeks ago one radio station around here had some guest dj on who was playing a bunch of late 70s early 80s stuff that sounded exactly like dam funk's shit and I was like man it has to be dam funk playing this

exactly, and as such it will not go out of style for me to like Dam Funk's music. it's cool that he seems to be hitting big in terms of wide appreciation right now, but it won't last long. 5 years from now people will be talking shit in this thread and i'll still at the very least be bumping the records he's already released.

Rare Dâm-Funk interview on collabos and the upcoming singles and album Invite The Light. Including unusual sharp words on 'Niggas In Paris' / Tyler The Creator from 5:30 on

maarten, Friday, 20 July 2012 19:40 (1 year ago) Permalink

^ Extract from the interview with Damon:

"I'm tired of people making songs like 'Niggas in Paris'. You got millionaires like Kanye and Jay-Z who still have the nerve to use that kind of word and have the whole world running around talking about niggas in Paris. What are you doing? You got millions, fool. What are you doing making my race look bad? You don't ever hear people say 'Kikes in Paris', 'Chinks in Paris', 'Wetbacks in Paris'? So why do you degrade my race and my people? I'm tired of it, I'm not degrading my black people in my music, I won't. I won't be like those other coons doing it right now."

did he actually use the phrase "snoop's first album"

actually, i think he said "early snoop"

the late great, Wednesday, 4 December 2013 21:24 (4 months ago) Permalink

it's definitely the best thing (at least that i've heard) that snoop has done in awhile, just because i think dam-funk's sort of drifting clouds of synth funk sort of fit what snoop can do now, just be a sort of amiable presence and do some nice sing-songy routines and stuff

it's real dreamy sounding

This is kinda low key nice. Nothing v exciting tho. Every song holds the same tempo, pretty weak drums too. The synths sound super. idk just made me want to listen to the new Dom Kennedy album which I think is in the same lane but much better.

Al He Miola (Spottie), Thursday, 5 December 2013 06:10 (4 months ago) Permalink

yeah, this starts really well (certainly hearing snoop sound fantastic and urgent in 2013 is a shock, anyway) and ends low-key nice. pleasant little curio to end the year with, i'm happy with it

Always felt like he needed an MC or at least someone else to bring his music into a bit more focus, so I'm looking forward to this.

Matt DC, Thursday, 5 December 2013 14:38 (4 months ago) Permalink

didn't really like "Faden Away." some moments on this are a little better than that but overall this album is a mild disappointment. snoop's voice doesn't sound very interesting. also they took all the funkiest parts out of "Feels So Real"!!!!

i agree his aesthetic is pretty narrow and unchanging but the guest vocalists he's used add a little salt to the mix and i think the whole thing is designed to create a certain woozy flow as discussed upthread, but you cd also mix this with the harder lockgrooves of classic G-Funk if you wanted
