Known as Los Angeles' "Ambassador of Boogie Funk," dãm-funk represents the citizens of the Funkmosphere. Headquartered in the Culver City section of L.A., dãm (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, dãm 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: continuing the classic West Coast tradition into today's scene with dãm's own original "Modern-Funk" compositions. By plugging in his arsenal of vintage synths and drum machines, dãm channels the galactic harmonies of his inspiration into his own brand of new boogie. Stones Throw Records' like-minded honcho Peanut Butter Wolf brought dãm 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.
okay, for those of you who didn't read that long quote dam-funk is a dj who uses heavy 80s style synth over drum-machine beats to create a whole new brand of electro funk. his latest release is "burgundy city", which is only two songs long but still gets me going. i love all his stuff, and if you're interested i'd be happy to up some of his stuff.

Well, I listened to Rhythm Trax Vol. 4 a few times, that's some seriously funky shit. These are just some excellent beats to zone out to, Red & Sunset being my favorites. Gets a bit repetitive at times, but I'm guessing that's inevitable with electro funk. Burgundy City didn't do much for me on first listen but I'll give it another chance to sink it.
