[MP3] Shelby Grey & DâM-FunK reMix Toro Y Moi

Toro Y Moi

Two very different interpretations right here of Toro Y Moi’s Say That, one of the standouts from his recent Anything In Return album. There’s a few reMixes of this tune floating about, but these two recently released versions bring a couple of distinct flavours to the track.

First up Mr. Shelby Grey delivers a deep House groove to accompany the song. Spacing out the vocals over a laid back warehouse beat. With a synthetic, hypnotic hook, Shelby drops haunting snatches of vocal in and out of the track, driven on by an early 90s House bassline. LA Funketeer  DâM-FunK whips up a sumptuous LA Funk Re-Freak that plays on the tracks smoothness to it’s fullest and injects it with a healthy does of D-F’s raw synthesizer Funk.  Two equally good, but worlds apart takes on an excellent, soulful, tune.

Unreleased track from DâM-FunK

Here’s a fresh track from the vaults of LA groove king. DâM-FunK

‘Blair’, in his own words is “An instrumental, dedicated 2 the memories of my hi-school I graduated from in Pasadena, CA while a ‘temporary resident’ here on this thing we know as plant earth.”. I, on the other hand, would call it smooth modern funk in that freeform way that is instantly recognisable as DâM-FunK. A solid tune with some real feeling in the synth playing, ‘Blair’ is the funkiest thing you will hear all day.

DāM-FunK and Nite Jewel keep it funky

It’s been ages since Synth-Funk master DāM-FunK and Nite Jewel supposedly teamed up to record an album under the moniker Nite-Funk. Apparently the album will finally be surfacing later this year, but until then this track might provide a glimpse of what to expect.

DāM-FunK’s reMix of Nite Jewel’s ‘It Goes Through Your Head’ will appear on the forthcoming single out later this month and it’s exactly what I’d want the Nite-Funk album to sound like. I love DāM-FunK’s synth work so much, he just gets that 80’s Post-Funk ElectroPop perfectly which makes a nice counter for Ramona Gonzalez’s vocals.

‘It Goes Through YOur head’ is out soon on Mexican Summer.

DāM-FunK – ‘Tis The Season!

West-Coast electronic Funk overlord DāM-FunK has recorded an especially smooth little jam for the holiday season.

Recorded live, un-sequenced, in LA a few days ago, the track ‘’Tis The Season’ blends X-Mas spirit, 80’s electronic Pop R&B and DāM-FunK Electro groove and should definably be on your X-Mas party playlist.

DāM-FunK covers The Human League

Dr. Martins, British footwear provider to the Indie inclined for, well, forever, are celebrating 50 years in the boot business by commissioning a whole heap of artists to cover 10 classic tracks.

This is the track you’ll be particularly interested in. La Electro-Funk agitator DāM-FunK taking The Human League’s ‘The Things That Dreams Are Made Of’ to Moog heaven.

Like Barry White channelling Phil Oakey this is a really raw Funk, bass heavy version.
