dam funk DaM FunK & Master Blazter: Set to Embark on Fall Tour

DaM-FunK and his three piece live accompaniment, Master Blazter (Los Angeles producers/players Computer Jay and J1), will embark on a national tour beginning in October. DaM’s been funking it up at every festival imaginable: Bonnaroo, Roskilde, The Detroit Electronic Music Festival, Winnipeg Jazz Festival with Bumbershoot and MusicFest NW on the horizon.

Toeachizown (Stones Throw Records, 2009) was a benchmark for the burgeoning ‘Modern-Funk’ movement. Since then, DaM has been a busy man touring the globe, hitting the studio and dropping sonic gems like this one to tide us over until the world gets to feast it’s ears on DaM-Funk’s project with former Slave frontman, Steve Arrington, Love, Peace, and Funky Beats (Stones Throw Records) which is set for release November 2011. Go here to stream the single. Keep your ears peeled for a new EP on Scion A/V September 13, 2011 and the long awaited full length on Stones Throw in 2012.
