Dam Funk @ APT This Friday - May 2nd

This Friday Stones Throw artist and Los Angeles DJ Dam Funk will be visiting APT in NYC [Downstairs]. This man is a former G-funk producer and founder of the Funkmosphere on Monday nights at Carbon in Culver City, LA, who kills it with boogie (damn I still hate this word LOL) classics. Check out the remix he did for Baron Zen’s cover of the Gap Band classic “Burn Rubber” on Stones Throw and his upcoming EP set for release later in ‘08.

Friday, May 02 @ Tha Get Up! / Duane Harriott welcomes Dåm Funk – 10p / $10

Duane keeps it rolling with an amazing string of guests. Last month, he had Maurice Fulton. The month before it was Theo Parrish. And now… Dåm-Funk. You may know Dãm-Funk from his remix of Baron Zen’s “Burn Rubber” & his debut solo joint “Sidewayz” both out now on Stones Throw, but he also throw’s one of the freshest Monday night parties in L.A. called FUNKMOSPHERE which focuses on rare joints from the early 80’s based Boogie/Funk, Modern-Soul, & ‘current’ Modern-Funk sub genres respectfully. An L.A. native, raised in Pasadena, CA & now based in the Leimert Park section of Los Angeles, Dãm is now currently recording his debut ‘EP’ for Stones Throw Records with full support from label president & friend Peanut Butter Wolf which promises to be the ‘Modern-Funk’ project everyone’s been waiting for to emerge from the left coast.

Here’s some vids to let you know what you will have in store at APT. The sound and visuals are a little crazy but you can see what type of shit he’s working with. (props to user centralline14 for upping those)
