Throughout 2010, Irish record store turned label, All-City Records, has been putting out a series of 10-inches dedicated to LA’s prolific producer/beat scene and recently dropped the seventh installment, a joint effort between Dam-Funk and Computer Jay. We already shared “Phantom” from Computer Jay’s side of the vinyl, and now we can pass along a selection from Dam-Funk’s half of the record. “3012 Love Affair” is a remarkably appropriate title for the song, as it really does sound like he is madly in love with his synthesizers. A smooth and funky rhythm track floats along for the better part of the five-and-a-half-minute song and lays the foundation for Dam-Funk to go apeshit on some keyboards, basically soloing the entire time. That’s not to say that this is some sort of self-indulgent effort; listening to him solo is just as rewarding for us, the listeners, as it is for him.
