Known by his admirers as the 'ambassador of boogie funk' American soul superstar DâM-FunK knows everything that's worth knowing about boogie, modern soul and electro-funk. In this mix, he dives deep into his record collection and emerges with some old gold, from vintage Prince and Prefab Sprout to Oliver Cheatham. If DâM-FunK is the ambassador, the ambassador is really spoiling us.
DâM-FunK is an artist with vintage sensibilities; his studio is full of vintage synthesisers and antique drum machines, while his sound is rooted in smooth grooves of 80s California. It’s no surprise then that he’s a big fan of vinyl and has reflected this in his mix. As he explains:
'All songs were taken from the original wax pressings. No mp3s or computer files were used for this mix. Just 100% 'Truth'.
Honesty, authenticity and truth are clearly traits that DâM-FunK values, and these qualities are reflected in every bar of every track in this mix. In his words:
‘This mix is what I simply listen 2 on any given day, while living life. It's a pleasure to share these tracks with my new oki-ni friends. I own all of these records. No fake shit or fads; just the truth.
