DāM-FunKK drops his newest single “Compos Mentis,” a Latin term which translate to “of sound mind.” The song is set to appear on the LA-based modern funk legend’s upcoming project STFU II, which drops next Friday (May 17) on Glydezone Recordings.
In a statement given to The FADER, DāM-FunK discussed the state of Funk music and his upcoming body of work:
For me, Funk is not a fad…it’s a way of life &..is timeless. Yet, sophistication is rare in Funk, which is still music connected to the streets (cities & suburbs). To its influence in Rap / Hip-Hop, Rock, House, Techno, Disco, R&B & more…from its creation out of pockets of Black American culture & experiences; the music continues to live on, through musicians of many nationalities, countries & human beings worldwide, including me; DāM-FunK, based here in Los Angeles, Ca., & Funkin’ with style, grace, progression & yes; sophistication via my new instrumental joint: “compos mentis” from the forthcoming STFU II project on Glydezone Recordings.
Now, feel free to just ‘glyde’..
