Synth wizards have been integral to funk since the dawn of the ’70s, from famous pioneers like Stevie Wonder, Bernie Worrell, and Prince to cult heroes like Dexter Wansel and Mandré. That’s the universe Damon Riddick grew up in, and he expanded through that experience to evolve from g-funk session player in the ’90s to one of the most fascinating figures in West Coast funk. Ever want to hear a Zapp-caliber bounce groove stretched into the sort of endless, sprawling vistas Tangerine Dream escaped to? Dâm-Funk would take you there, whether the journey was a relaxed nightvision glide or a high-noon dose of Cali heat.
