When it comes to the school of modern boogie and funk, Dam-Funk is the guru; a spiritual and encyclopedic center, an open channel for all things drum-machine and synth. A quick ear on any of his solo work is more than enough to prove his acumen, but this May, the Pasadena legend will add yet another peg to his undying presence by curating his very own edition in the DJ Kicks mix series. And though we’ll have to wait until May 27th for the full reveal, a track list has arrived, boasting gems, new and old, for both seasoned and novice modern funkateers, including the original composition, “Believer.” So prepare for a proper discourse as Dam-Funk readies the release. Peep the track list down below and hold tight for the full transmission to beam in next month.
