Dâm-Funk "A Day at the Carnival"
It's starting to seem that Dâm-Funk releasing a two-disc/five-LP/24-track debut album last year really wasn't that big of a deal for the SoCal funkster. Judging by the extended run of new music Dâm's been doling out at will, dude could probably deliver us a few more Toeachizowns before the Mayan calendar expires. Luckily, each tune added to his repertoire is as consistently rad as those before it, and this one for the Proximal label compilation, Proximity One: A Narrative of a City (out August 10), is no different. "A Day at the Carnival" rocks a particularly high-tempo and upbeat rhythm that are somewhat uncharacteristic for Dâm-Funk, but his standard collection of vintage synth tones and G-funk basslines are as warm and groovy as ever. Dâm-Funk may not be trying out new hats, but at least the one he's got on won't go out of style any time soon. (via Pitchfork)
