Just when you thought the Stones Throw label could not possibly get any doper, they unveil one of the most monumental mega jams in recent memory. The hook up between Snoop and Dâm-Funk is one of those collaborations that makes you go:’ why hasn’t this happened before? And the answer to that question is quite obviously that the stars had to be aligned just right, so that the celestial shine from Planet Funk could focus a twofold beam of iridescent cosmic energy at Snoop’s sizable blunt and Dam-funk’s opulent ‘do - the force of which has pulled these seasoned Caesars of the groove together in the one of most delicious, synthed-out love-ins of all time. Ladies and gentlemen, without further ado, it is our pleasure to present: The Funk. AKA Dâm-Funk and ‘Snoopzilla’ - ‘Faden Away.’
'Faden Away' is the first single from the forthcoming album, ‘7 Days of Funk’. According to Snoop, they are: ‘the babies of the Mothership' and he goes on to say that: ‘I’ve had funk influences in my music my whole career. Dam-Funk is cold. He’s keeping the funk alive and I knew I had to get down with him.’
Don’t sleep on the album, which will be dropping December 10th on the mighty Stones Throw.
