Dâm-Funk "Warm Sentiments"
- Words: Patric Fallon
As he is wont to do, LA's premier '80s-funk maestro, Dâm-Funk (who recently released his collaborative Higher LP with Steve Arrington), dropped a free tune out of the blue via his SoundCloud account. "Warm Sentiments" finds the prolific producer in an especially contemplative mood, working out a low-swung groove underneath a thatch of twinkling synths and slow-sweeping filters. An oversized bass tone rumbles and groans in the bottom part of the mix's frequencies, but manages to tread lightly around the finer elements of "Warm Sentiments," leaving its positive energy and classic vibes firmly intact.
