I’ve been looking forward to this for a while.
Funk master Dam Funk has slowly been edging his way into my life via his crossover Ariel Pink collab and professed love for Prefab Sprout. Snoop I can take or leave but his smooth delivery matched to Funk’s slick beats could provide some much needed LA smooth grooves while we battle our way through a bitter winter.
Opener ‘Hit Da Pavement’ shows the collab hitting immediate paydirt with a jittering production married to the biggest hook on the record, leaving a production as gleaming as the wing mirror on Snoop's ‘67 Pontiac. His understated delivery ensures that he doesn’t completely obliterate Funk’s production but neither does he really add too much sparkle to Funk’s instrumental cuts. This is evident on ‘Let it Go’ which has a fabulous 80s Prince groove gliding away, the vocal hook is smart but doesn’t completely catch light and on ‘Faden Away’ he almost fades right out the track despite its sweet chorus over some outrageously squelshy synth.
‘Do My Thang’ is the nearest we get to full on Doggy Style. Snoop generally seems to be holding back on the album but here he’s all out which leads to the most commercially accessible track on the record. Although you are sometimes left with the impression that this is a Dam Funk instrumental record which Snoop has wandered in and done his ‘thang’ over, its still wonderfully enjoyable with a couple of killer standouts.
