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

psychgawsple, Wednesday, 24 June 2009 19:37 (6 years ago) Permalink

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 (6 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.

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

I guess DF was always just kind of a dreamy, vibey thing without a lot of substance to me...cumulus clouds of funk, this didn't really feel that different

My Chief Keef Keef (upper mississippi sh@kedown), Thursday, 5 December 2013 14:36 (1 year ago) Permalink

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 (1 year 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 can totally see that, I'm sure this stuff is as good as the earlier stuff, which seems like the nature of his work in general. there's no risk of failure, really

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
