Dâm-Funk Shares New Track With Steve Arrington, Embarks on World Tour

Oddly enough, it's been quite a while since we last heard from the prolific future-funk maestro Dâm-Funk, so we're pleased to see his name pop back up on our radar. It seems the artist has been hard at work on his follow-up to his sizable 2009 debut, Toeachizown. Apparently, he's also spent time working with ex-Slave frontman Steve Arrington on the singer's upcoming album for Stones Throw, Love, Peace, and Funky Beats, which we first heard about last year. Dâm-Funk will also take to the road with his backing band Master Blazter this Saturday, embarking on a world tour that stretches well into September. You can check out the full list of dates, along with a preview of the producer's work with Arrington, "Goin' Hard," below.
