Known as Los Angeles’ “Ambassador of Boogie Funk,” DāM-FunK represents the citizens of the Funkmosphere. Headquartered in the Leimert Park section of L.A., Dãm (pronounced: ‘Dame’ as in Damon) spent the last few years cultivating a musical renaissance rooted in the early-’80s styles known as Boogie, Modern Soul and Electro-Funk.
As a DJ/selector, Dãm attracts the most discerning Boogie Funk afficionados to his 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.
Also, as a current Stones Throw recording artist (his debut album ‘Toeachizown’ (2009), now an underground classic), he continues to enjoy critical acclaim, new fans worldwide, and co-signs of approval from artists like Snoop Dogg (who, with music produced by Dam, just released the ‘7 Days of Funk’ EP), Ariel Pink, Jay-Z, Erykah Badu, De La Soul, Junie Morrison (Parliament-Funkadelic, Ohio Players), and many more current and classic musicians of various genres. His next album of new material will soon be released on Stones Throw Records, and will continue to blend the classic West Coast tradition into today’s scene with Dam’s spacey, original “Modern-Funk” compositions that “glide into the future with his unique, synth and bass-driven vibe.”
Fresh off his travels as a musician in Todd Rundgren’s recent tour, this special dj set will mark Dam’s fourth New Orleans show (dj or band performance) to be co-presented by Soul Sister, who cites him as one of her favorite artists.
