Recommended Listening / DJ Mix / Future Soul
Well with the new year comes a new mix from myself that I did for Frank 151 Radio A LONG TIME AGO (in internet years). The newest episode turns it’s focus to the future of soul + funk music, LA’s Dam-Funk. I am sure most of you have heard him by now, but if you haven’t just imagine Kashif, Zapp, and Prince having a baby.
I have been waiting and waiting to get this mix posted and the timing actually could not have been any better. My portion of the mix consists of newer boogie / beats stuff that I am really feeling. Mike Slott, Onra, Reggie B, Jneiro Jarel and so on.
So with that said, you can head over to Frank and watch a clip of host Jasmine Solano’s interview with Dam and download the mix. Thanks to Synapse for having me on the show and big shout out to brother Dam for bringing the boogie sound further into the light it deserves (just don’t make the record prices skyrocket!).
