family dinner

This is a different kind of funk, a slight deviation from the usual Funk It Out Fridays around here.  It’s still funky, just a mellow version.  Brought to you by Snarky Puppy from their latest release, Family Dinner, Volume 1, “Deep” (which was originally featured on N’Dambi’s Tunin’ Up & Cosignin’) was reworked as a live experience, encapsulating the original jazziness but extra rich in bass and percussion.  Check it out below and pick up that new Family Dinner, Volume 1 as well.  With features from Lalah Hathaway, Chantae Cann,  Shayna Steele, the aforementioned N’Dambi and other talented vocalists, this album proves to be a must-have.

 

There’s something so dope about a dj’s reworking of an artist’s music.  It’s like listening to the tracks with fresh ears in new light.  This is exactly what DJ Rahdu has done with some of the exotically soulful N’Dambi’s past works.  It’s an unfinished mixtape, so brace yourself for an abrupt end that makes you feen (yes, feen) for more of that revised goodness.
