Live at Simachev Loft
Recorded at Simachev Loft in Moscow Russian Federation
Los Angeles United States
Stones Throw’s ambassador of all things boogie and electro funk gets down and dirty at Moscow’s Simachev Loft.
Known as Los Angeles’ “Ambassador of Boogie Funk” this man represents the citizens of the Funkmosphere to the fullest. Headquartered in the Culver City section of LA, _(artist-name)Dâm-Funk_ (Dâm 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, Dâm attracts the most discerning boogie funk aficionados within driving distance of his storied Monday night Funkmosphere parties. But it’s not just collectors at the bar toasting to the melodic sounds. Anyone who grooves to the likes of _(artist-name)Slave_, _(artist-name)Aurra_, early _(artist-name)Prince_ and Prelude Records, will get a dose of those groups’ unknown contemporaries more obscure but equally funk-worthy. By plugging in his arsenal of vintage synths and drum machines, Dâm also channels the galactic harmonies of his inspiration into his own brand of modern funk: it comes as now surprise that _(artist-name)Peanut Butter Wolf_ brought him on to the Stones Throw team to glide into the future with his unique, synth- and bass-driven vibe. A new chapter for Southern Cali space funk? Dâm right!
