An absolute class act in the music industry, Dam-Funk has an unfathomable amount of knowledge when it comes to timeless productions. His own music tilts from the future-boogie to old-school funk and R&B which has allowed him to stand out from the saturated scene that has become dance music. He's getting set to release his next full-length album, which you can stream below, but he also got a chance to sit down with the Boiler Room crew for a special dig through his immersive collection.
It's apparent that Dam-Funk likes to hoard vinyl, but it's not really hoarding if every piece of wax is an absolute jam. One of the best things about listening to records is the raw nature that comes from the sound. You are literally holding the music in your hands and when you put the stylus into that groove you are hearing a miracle. Dam-Funk certainly knows the importance of this aspect of records and it's a pleasure to be able watch him go through some of the best of his collection.
Invite The Light is a special album for Dam-Funk that features 20 tracks with cameos from the likes of Q-Tip, Snoop Dogg, Kid Sister, Jody Watley and Nite Jewel among others. It's as if this album is the culmination of his entire career packed into a beautifully crafted album. Listen to the stream below to get a sneak preview of the album and take some advice from the soulful king of cool.
Dam-Funk's Invite The Light will be released on September 4th via Stones Throw Records
