Dam Funk Vinyl, CD & tapes from this artist at Norman Records
A lot of people are guesstimating that Garrett is the secretive alias of boogietronica legend Dam-Funk. While this has been neither confirmed nor denied at the time of writing (17:00, 29th October, Year Of Our Lord 2018) people are, like, 99.9% sure - D-F’s real name is Damon GARRETT Riddick, after all. What’s more, the smooth-ass synth tracks that make up the Private Life II LP bear more than a passing resemblance to the D-F sound. This one’s out via Music From Memory.
More funky activity from DaM-Funk. This one is a sequel to 2016’s Architecture record, and it more than lives up to that fine slice. Architecture II is a good-times record, with four tracks full of bassline fun and big melodies. Lots to love here. Please note, Mr Funk suggests you listen to the four tracks together as a set for best results. On Saft.

A new(!) one from everyday synth archivists Music From Memory sees ambient rocker Garrett mix wahing guitar signals with oscillating synths, combining washy chord overtures with thrilling rhythmic pulsations. Private Life comes with little information contextualising it, presenting the "mysterious" LA artist on his own terms. Expect lounge instrumentals, a smattering of funk and twelve minute prog meditations.
Dâm-Funk can be relied upon to show you a good time with his low-slung funky style. New three-track EP Architecture is no exception, although Mr Funk does tip his hat to the house style of the label by cutting some deep house flavours into the mix. If anything, that makes things even smoother and groovier. 12” on Saft.
Dam Funk steps up to the wheels of steel for his contribution to the venerable DJ-Kicks series. You’d expect the man to deliver some compelling funk action, and boy does he not disappoint. Stacks of quality synthy-groove, sourced from producers big and small, and topped off with an exclusive Dam Funk cut. Different tracklistings on the CD and vinyl editions.
Eighties electro-funk revivalist Dam Funk has an excellent line in smooth jams both slow and fast, and he crucially understands the essential swing of funk. Invite The Light gets help from the likes of Q-Tip and both Leon Sylvers III and Leon Sylvers IV. The home of this record is Stone’s Throw, just the right place I should think.
