The consistently excellent and utterly prolific artist known as Dâm-Funk recently dropped this gem on the world as part of his Straight from the Lab series displayed on the Stones Throw website. It’s another addition to his ever-growing catalog of forward-thinking boogie tunes that prominently feature thick, buttery bass synths, classic drum-machine tones, spacey analog keyboards, and a big helping of Dâm’s colorful vocal delivery thrown in for extra effect. This new tune sounds both off the cuff—as it jams on only a couple of ideas for nearly four minutes—and well rehearsed in its delivery, since just about everything Dâm-Funk puts his hand to has the soulfulness and immediacy of a classic track we’ve listened to for years.
