Dâm-Funk Offers Free Download of Classic Tape Release

Back in the mid-'90s, the funk auteur known as Dâm-Funk was operating as Damon G. Riddick, and steadily honing his craft inside of his Pasadena bunker—concocting the smooth, G-funk sound which would become his calling card. Now, the SoCal producer has shared Tranquil Funk, a cassette recording from 1994 which—until recently—only existed in its original form as a "private pressing" in the hands of only a few “close friends and associates,” but is now available to download for free. Edited down from its original 16-track version, Dâm-Funk has digitized eight of the tape's tracks, all of which were produced in his bedroom at the time. You can stream and download Tranquil Funk via the SoundCloud player below, where you'll also find the complete tracklist. (via FACT)
