Press Play: Dâm-Funk, Kingdom, Shlohmo, and More
- Words: Patric Fallon
We're not necessarily complaining when we say that our inboxes are inundated on a daily basis with more music than we could ever hope to hear, but it does often pose a problem for us. We mostly just don't have the space or time to share all of the interesting, unique, and exciting new tunes that come our way. In an effort to combat this issue, we've come up with Press Play, a weekly feature that will pull together 10 or so of the things we "missed" into a single post rife with eclectic sights and sounds.
Our first installment of Press Play comes complete with all sorts of sonic mish-mash, courtesy of artists like Kingdom, Shlohmo, Lemonade, Dâm-Funk, The Bug, Groundislava, and JJ DOOM, among others. Get your fill of the remixes, originals, DJ sets, live performances, and more, below.
