Audio: J1 "Slang Talk" (from Starship 27, Vol. 2)

You may have read our Rest-In-Power wishes towards the recently departed Master Blazter drummer Javon "J1" Coleman  (see his last known performance on video here) but if  you never got the chance to see Dam-Funk & MB perform live, you may not have known what dude was all about. That stops now. To get an idea, check this instrumental track "Slang Talk" (stream below)--an outtake from the Starship 27, Vol. 2 compilation on Insect Records which drops in digital and vinyl form March 29th. Curated entirely by J1, the comp features the work of OKP stalwarts ranging from Black Spade & Coultrain to Houseshoes to Eric Lau to Kev Brown to Georgia Anne Muldrow (not to mention Dam-Funk himself and the third blazter in Master Blazter, Computer Jay). *More importantly* proceeds from the sale go towards Javon's family. Like somebody wise once said, you never know what you've got 'til it's gone. Now we know.
