Dam Funk wrote the book on boogie, funk, and street cred.

When you see this guy live as soon as he walks into the room all the sudden it gets funky. Just everything about this guy is Funk.

When he DJs it’s all 100% wax original pressings, 2 turntables,an old school casio microphone (to keep the MC sounding backyard boogie status), and Los Angeles’s funkiest dude going to town on the decks. This is first DJ I have ever seen where I thought, “Thank GOD this guy exists, DJing is still progressing to another level, and this world isn’t doomed by sorority girls djing their Britney mashups through itunes”.

Enough talking, enjoy this golden set, let me know what you think.

Track of the Day: Massive Attack – Unfinished Sympathy (1991)


Vodpod videos no longer available.

more about “massive attack 2“, posted with vodpod

[tweetmeme source=”soulofsydney” only_single=false]

The song originally appeared on the group’s 1991 debut album Blue Lines & features Shara Nelson on lead vocals. It is generally recognized as a pioneering song in the trip hop genre & is one of the group’s most successful singles,

This single was released shortly after the first Gulf War started, and due to increased sensitivities, the band changed their name to “Massive” for a time, which is how they are listed on the single.

The video was directed by David Lynch, who is known for his TV series Twin Peaks and movie Blue Velvet. It features Nelson walking along the sidewalk, indifferent to her surroundings, which include drunks, gangs, and bikers. The verve made a similar video for their song “Bittersweet Symphony.”

The drum track is based on the bells found in the 1975 song “Take Me To The Mardi Gras” by Bob James, who is a Jazz composer known for combining elements of dance, funk and pop. Also sampled by Run-DMC’s & Missy Elliot

ERYKAH BADU AUSTRALIAN TOUR PETITION

Click —-> ERYKAH BADU AUSTRALIAN FACEBOOK PETITION

It’s time to make some noise for one of the pioneers of the Neo Soul movement – ERYKAH BADU! From the lady that brought us classics like “Didn’t Cha Know”, “Bag Lady”, “I Want You”, “Ye-Yo”, “On&On”, “Tyrone” and “Love of My Life (Hip Hop)”, Erykah Badu has made an indelible mark in the music industry not only as a creative genius, but as an original artist in a league of her own.  Badu seamlessly fuses organic sounds of  African rhythms, to Hip Hop, to Jazz, Soul to Funk. As a mother, singer/songwriter, producer and entertainer she can hypnotize an audience without the overbearing  trait of preaching a movement – she just lives it.

After rumours of having been denied to perform for Peats Ridge Festival 09/10, a petition has been created via Facebook to let major promoters know that there is a fanbase in Australia. The petition aims to make some waves in the industry with the desired outcome of a future Australian tour! Her new album NEW AMERYKAH Pt.II: Return of the Ankh will be released on the 25th of February, 2010 which sees her collaborate with multiple artists from Jay Electronica, 9th Wonder, Shafiq Husayn of SA RA, Madlib, Georgia Anne Muldrow, Lil Wayne and Bilal to name a few. Honorable mention goes to J DILLA for the use of his production  beyond the grave in the collaboration track entitled ‘LOVE’.

The Erykah Badu petition in essence is all about music – her music, and the heart of the petition is YOU – her fans. Music is our universal language. You know it. I know it. It’s that knowing smile we’ve all experienced. Sometimes we wish the world could take it’s time with us. But it doesn’t. Music is the only thing that can make us take control and say ‘world, you gotta wait…cos my jams on!’

It’s the tingles, the goosebumps, it’s the headnod, it’s the smile….it’s losing ourselves in the moment….it just is.

Music speaks, moves, inspires, instills faith, HEALS and encourages strength through boldness!!

LET’S BE BOLD!

Our efforts combined can make it happen – this is not possible without YOU! Let’s make some noise!!
