He’s baaackk. Last year, the man known as the ambassador of Funk, Damon Riddick, otherwise known as DâM-FunK, released a handful of groovy, synthesizer heavy instrumentals, unheard b-sides and a collection of jams recorded during the late 80s called Adolescent Funk. The Stones Throw representative is now gearing up for a full on North American tour, and is also prepping his fans for a brand new, four-track EP called InnaFocusedDazed.

The producer also released a recently recorded instrumental, one that candidly displays his fondness for 80s disco and funk, and that signature squeaky clean sound he’s become known for. Hear “Kaint Let ‘Em Change Me (No!)” below.

Reviews

Charlotte Aitchison’s second LP is a warhead, a sonic sour bomb that conceals sneering attitude and caustic kiss-offs beneath an initially shimmering pop sheen.
