6150Known as Los Angeles’ “Ambassador of Boogie Funk,” Dam-Funk represents the citizens of the Funkmosphere. Headquartered in the Leimert Park section of L.A., Dam (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/selector, Dam attracts the most discerning boogie funk afficionados 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 Slave, Aurra, early Prince, Prelude Records and the like, will get a dose of those groups’ unknown contemporaries – more obscure but equally funk-worthy.

The next phase of the Ambassador’s mission is his debut album “Toeachizown” (release date: 16.10.2009): continuing the classic West Coast tradition into today’s scene with Dam’s own original “modern-funk” compositions. By plugging in his arsenal of vintage synths and drum machines, Dam channels the galactic harmonies of his inspiration into his own brand of new boogie. Stones Throw Records’ like-minded honcho Peanut Butter Wolf brought Dam on to the team to glide into the future with his unique, synth and bass-driven vibe. It’s a promising new chapter for Southern Cali space funk.
