Only play these tunes if you be straight ballin/got mad swag.
First up are two free numbers off Devonwho's soundcloud. Devonwho make excellent... music that is difficult to define. Imagine hip hop made a baby with star trek; that's close to devonwho. To date I've never heard a devonwho track I haven't liked within 30 seconds and last year they turned in a remix of Mono/Poly's Oil fields which easily ranks in my top 50 tunes from last year. Starting off Slapshot is a bit that Dam-Funk (more on him below) included in his mix for the irreplaceable Mary Anne Hobbs entitled Dam-Funk's future of modern funk mix, I think that sums up the track rather nicely. The second track, and my favourite, is most definitely the more heartfelt of the two, even if the heart it is felt from is that of a robot. I hope I've confound you enough with my sci-fi analogies to hit them tracks. LAZER!
Ok ok so who's this Dam-funk cat you mentioned? This guy.
There's literally no way he can make music that sounds awful; look at him! I found this remix of Nite Jewel on XLR8R and fell in love with it pretty quickly. It was described as galactic boogie which is pretty accurate. Maybe I should change the name of this post to that? If you need a bit of help to convince you to download the track I suggest you A. look at the photo above again and B. watch the below video of Warm eyes by Fatima, produced by none other than Mr. Funk himself. Finally, watch out for a Nite Jewel + Dam-Funk collaboration lurkin in the near future
