Known as Los Angeles’ “ambassador of boogie funk,” DâM-FunK represents the citizens of the Funkmosphere. Headquartered in the Culver City section of L.A., DâM (pronounced ‘dame’ as in Damon) spent the last few years cultivating a musical renaissance rooted in the early-80’s styles known as boogie, modern soul and electro-funk.
As a DJ/selector, DâM-FunK attracts the most discerning boogie funk aficionados within driving distance of his storied Monday-night Funkmosphere parties. But it’s not just collectors at the bar toasting to the melodic sounds. Anyone who grooves to the likes of Slave, Aurra, early Prince, Prelude Records and the like, will get a dose of those groups’ unknown contemporaries – more obscure but equally funk-worthy.
The next phase of the ambassador’s mission: continuing the classic West Coast tradition into today’s scene with DâM’s own original “modern-funk” compositions. By plugging in his arsenal of vintage synths and drum machines, DâM channels the galactic harmonies of his inspiration into his own brand of new boogie. Stones Throw Records’ like-minded honcho Peanut Butter Wolf brought DâM on to the team to glide into the future with his unique, synth and bass-driven vibe. It’s a promising new chapter for Southern Cali space funk.
THE STARSHIP CONNECTION
SF based electrofunk wizards join forces and the result is pure madness (in the greatest way). The Starship Connection EP, titled after four piece live e-Funk band, combine their shared love analog synth grooves and West Coast funk in the most cosmic way. Gritty and banging.
Synthesizer Funk / Future Bass Quartet. Crew :: B. Bravo, Teeko, D-Nasty, Bob-O.
Jeffrey moved to San Francisco to escape the suburbs of San Diego’s east county and make a name for himself as a fashion designer. . . shortly after arriving he abandoned fashion and became the front man for influential new wave/hardcore band The Calculators. Two years, two records, and many tours later, they split allowing him to finish a degree in fashion at SFSU and the others to form The Rapture.
Plus new parties in San Francisco: Blow Up and Club 1994 where Jeffrey had picks his favorite artists like Justice, Interpol, Chromeo, Glass Candy, !!!, Steve Aoki, DJ Funk, Uffie, and Yeah Yeah Yeahs to preform. His parties are easily the most exciting and charged parties in the city.
Jeffrey’s musical vision, open mindedness and sense of adventure makes his sets mind blowing and memorable to both the dance and rock music scenes internationally. Get into him.
