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.

psychgawsple, Wednesday, 24 June 2009 19:34 (eleven years ago) link

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 (eleven years ago) link

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 (eleven years ago) link

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.

MC Whistler (Noodle Vague), Thursday, 27 August 2015 17:47 (four years ago) link

^^awesome thank you! (still need to hear the mix you posted earlier though)

digging the new album a lot, much more energetic party feel imo, less of the spacier out-there funk of "come on outside" or "searchin 4 funk's future" which are two of my favorite tunes from toeachizown so i'm a little bummed it doesn't quite have that spacey vibe (though "acceptance" on the new one works pretty well)

ariel pink tune is one of the weakest here, pretty much exclusively b/c of ariel lol (and i am a fan of AP at least the pre-before today albums)

He just did a 2-track single with Ekkah as well.

"Space Between Us" is the better of the two songs, but "What's Up" is the only one on Youtube.

Surprised there's almost no discussion of "Invite the Light" on here. is it because this thread is hard to search for or are people tuckered out on the dude's sound? I'm on listen #4 now, it gets a bit better each time, the longer tunes like "O.B.E." and especially "Floating On Air" are excellent, I also dig "Surveillance Escape" for its sheer campiness. The Ariel Pink tune pretty much bites it though, I'm afraid.

Don't love it as much as Toeachizown or the Steve Arrington joint, but that's just relative points on a scale of stuff I love

Rock Wokeman (Noodle Vague), Wednesday, 28 December 2016 18:48 (three years ago) link

wasn't a huge fan of the Arrington album - it is nice but to me it just feels like he's adding lyrics to already-finished D-F tracks, several of which I'm pretty sure were released already. The title track rules though. 7 Days of Funk is pretty nice.

frogbs, Wednesday, 28 December 2016 18:53 (three years ago) link

Arrington is such a fun lyricist and I love his voice so I feel like it's his record as much as Damon's. Funkzilla is fine too but just a bit lesser on my scale

Rock Wokeman (Noodle Vague), Wednesday, 28 December 2016 19:10 (three years ago) link

I dig his SoundCloud funk better than the albums and I'm not sure why. He's got a recent one up there, "I smoke music"... I mean that's the greatest title ever.
