Figured I have to keep y’all posted on this one. I promised this a while ago when provided you with the audio stream to “I’ll be Trippin“. If you happened to remember that one you might know Steve Arrington (former Slave front man) and Dam Funk are currently working on an album. More info on that here.
So what do you get when old generation funk collides with new generation funk ?…. Double funkaliciousness and that is something that sounds a little something like “Going Hard“.
Judging by the sound of this track Mr Arrington & Mr Funk are doing their part when it comes to keeping the funk alive. Don’t know about you but I can’t wait for this album to drop.

DOWNLOAD: DAM FUNK-TRUTH
It’s been a while since I’ve posted my first mix from the Oki-Ni mix series Resonance. But I guess it took a while cause this was the one I was waiting for Truth by Dam Funk.
For those of you who are familiar with Dam Funk it should come as no surprise that the mix is full of funkelectric and poppy 80’s tunes. The one thing that puts this mix in a very different league than anything we have ever posted before is the fact that the whole thing is comprised of tracks taken from original wax pressings. In Mr. Funk’s words …. No mp3s or computer files were used for this mix, I own all of these records. No fake shit or fads; just the TRUTH.

Lovin the groove on this one … is either that or just the fact that talib kweli is doing his signature bar spitting. This track will be featured on MED’s forthcoming album.
