Following contributions from the likes of DJ Koze, Actress, and MoodymanDâM-FunK is set to become the next artist to bestow his musical prowess and reflection to the esteemed DJ-Kicks series. Known all around the world for his multi-layered, G funk-laden style and adored in his native Los Angeles for his consistent contributions to the city’s nightlife and preferred sound, DâM-FunK can be credited with the revamping and revival of the sound that is now known as “Modern Funk.” In a press release, he explains the genre plainly by saying “Modern-Funk is a combination of all the sounds on the mix: Funk, boogie, electro, house, modern-soul, ambient tones… A push and pull of nostalgia and progressiveness…”

DâM-FunK‘s contribution to the series is set to drop on May 27 via !K7 Records. Ahead of its release, you can get your first taste of this dynamite collection of tunes by streaming a new DJ-Kicks exclusive from the man himself, titled “Believer,” in the player below.
