Dam-Funk Sells Funk Straight Out The Trunk. Literally (Video)
In an era of software-driven producers, Los Angeles, California’s Dam-Funk is about that hardware. Since 1988, the Stones Throw Records artist has made bodacious Funk through a series of synthesizers, cheap and expensive alike. If you see the Snoop Dogg and Blu collaborator on the road, you’ll see that he comes prepared with a Herbie Hancock-like arsenal of equipment.
Gearing up for his just-released Invite The Light, D.F. loads up the trunk of his circa-1980 Pontiac Gran Prix, fires one up, and takes to the streets to spread the gospel of Funkology with the people. With synths under $25, Dam-Funk holds a sale (at Peanut Butter Wolf’s Stones Throw headquarters) and a congregation for the promotional “Dam Trunk.” This is meeting the people done cool.
