Dam makes a lifetime of digging and absorbing music that feels as laid-back as the Santa Ana breeze. Years ago, he coined the term 'Modern Funk' to give context to his music. The elements of the synth-heavy and multi-layered style are gloriously displayed on DJ-Kicks. "Modern-Funk is a combination of all the sounds on the mix," he explains. "Funk, Boogie, Electro, House, Modern-Soul, Ambient tones… a push and pull of nostalgia and progressiveness…"
At a satisfying 19 songs, DâM-FunK's DJ-Kicks lets grooves breathe. This is a mix to happily get lost within; a document in vibe. Unexpected contemporary joints mingle with lost gems from unlikely places. The exclusive DâM-FunK production "Believer" makes its debut on DJ-Kicks, an extensive instrumental composition that on it's own could only be classified as signature Modern-Funk. The mix also includes Dam's excellent collaboration with Nite Jewel, as 'Nite-Funk,' on "Can U Read Me?"
DâM-FunK's DJ-Kicks is released on May 27th, on CD, 2LP (w. CD included) and digital formats. Pre-orders are available now.
