Dâm Funk Explains The Funk, Digging, Good Music Karma

March 25, 2009

Respect to On Point for dropping an interview with Stones Throw artist Dâm Funk as he elaborates on his philosophy behind exposing his DJ set playlists, the practice of covering record labels, sharing knowledge of music, and keeping Funk alive.

Notable Quote:
"The Hip-Hop generation… ya know, they sampled the Funk, but they don’t really pay homage to the Funk."

I’m feeling this, but I don’t agree with the whole West Coast were the only ones pumping the funk, what about EPMD’s first album? That was 88, four years before The Chronic!

Word i do have to agree with him. Being i’m from the midwest(kansas city)Here we were in to cameo, faze-o, barkays, and zapp,and all of the late funk.

*side note*

I met Roger Troutman when he came to Kansas city. He was here to do a track with Tech Nine. I was working at 7th heaven, which is a record store. If you have ever seen any concert or video of Zapp.

You know the stage gear that DF was talking about in the interview, they ware that shit all the time.

Roger came in to the record store just to buy his album and he had on a suit like he just got off stage, and then ran to the record store to buy his album. LOL LOL

It was crazy, i’m like did he just have a concert in the middle of the afternoon.LOL LOL but he was a cool kat. This was like 2 weeks before he was killed. RIP

I went to three cities to play during last summer holidays. They are Beijing, Dalian and HuHehot. I went to Beijing Michael Kors Handbags more than eight times. Beijing is the capital of China.

My family visited the Great Wall, the Summer Palace, the Palace Museum, the Beihai Park, the Space Museum, etc. I went to the countryside of Beijing to go boating and Michael Kors Skorpios handbag fishing. It was very interesting. I went shopping in WangFuJing. I bought lots of souvenirs and other michael kors iphone wallet things. I like eating Beijing snacks. They are delicious. Don’t miss Beijing Duck. It is really nice. Dalian is a beautiful city. Dalian is close to Beijing. I spent 5o minutes on the plane. Dalian is near the sea. I smelled the salt in the air. The roads are clean. There are lots of michael kors classic handbags trees and flowers near the roads. There are many esplanades and Japanese buildings. There are some fountains in one of the esplanades. Some people flew kites and walked on the michael kors hamilton esplanades. We went to see the beach and the sea. The sea is blue. There were many swimmers in the michael kors iphone case sea. I lay on the beach to see the sky. Dalian is a very nice place to Michael Kors Jet Set Tote live in. Huhehot is in michael kors iphone case Inner Mongol. There are lots of large grasslands. The grasslands are endless. The sky is michael kors outlet bright blue. There were a lot of horses and sheep. They were running or eating grass. I rode a horse on the grassland. I picked some colourful michael kors iphone flowers. We drank tea with milk. There is a small desert, it was very hot when I walked on it. The sand could sing. These trips helped me open my eyes. I enjoyed my day.
