Watch a New Interview with Dām-Funk

Following the announcement and subsequent digital release of his collaborative LP with funk legend Steve Arrington (of Slave fame), LA boogie maestro Dām-Funk (a.k.a. Damon Riddick) has shared a video interview in which he gives background and insight to collaborating with his idol on their new full-length for Stones Throw. The years-in-the-making Higher LP was the result of Riddick reaching out to Arrington, who refrained from music-making for nearly 20 years during his tenure as a minister. And this collaboration—as Dām-Funk explains in the interview, which can be seen below—perhaps involves a tinge of fate, as Stones Throw label head Peanut Butter Wolf first met Dām-Funk when Riddick gave him a rare, bootleg videotape of a live TV performance by Slave. Incidentally, we recently shared a tune from Steve Arrington and Dām-Funk's 14-track Higher LP, which is digitally available now via Stones Throw, and will be released on CD and wax this fall.
