This year looks to be the year that Stones Throw Records‘s Dam Funk blows up on the national scene. This past summer saw the release of Dam Funk’s incredible collaboration with Slave’s Steve Arrington. However, December marks what may be his biggest collaboration with — a collaboration with the legendary Snoop Dogg, in a new group that both artists have dubbed, 7 Days of Funk. Their self-titled debut effort will see a December 10th release. And from the first single off the album, “Faden Away,” the track sounds as though it mixes G Funk era funk with Snoop Dogg’s “Sexual Eruption.” It’s funky and seductive as hell — and it sounds as though it could have been released in 1983 as easily as it could have been released today.
The official video has the duo performing the song in a sweaty, underground club. And of course, Snoop is being – well Snoop.
