DâM-FunK: "Step Into My Zone"

Yet another late-night Soundcloud drop from the FunK himself, "Step Into My Zone" is a six-minute slow jam that dates back to '06. The song title pretty much says it all for this irresistable instrumental groover. --Ric Leichtung, Altered Zones

Stream DâM-FunK's InnaFocusedDaze EP

Dummy Mag shared a stream of DâM-FunK's InnaFocusedDaze 10", the first official release to follow '09's Toeachizown. It's true, this four-track EP is a part of Scion's totally lame but well-curated A/V project (artists have to eat too y'all), but the syrupy sounds of "Inside Of U" and glitched-out funk of the title-track make InnaFocusedDaze a worthy listen while we wait for the Stones Throw full-length to drop next year. --Ric Leichtung, Altered Zones

DâM-FunK: "Kaint Let 'Em Change Me (No!)"

DâM-FunK has been on a roll with his late night SoundCloud posts, and this smooth lo-fi jam is no exception. The quality of the off-the-cuff track "Kaint Let 'Em Change Me (No!)", recorded at 3 a.m. last night, just makes us even more excited for his full-length follow-up to '09's Toeachizown due in 2012. --Ric Leichtung, Altered Zones via Prefix Magazine

DâM-FunK: "We Should Kill All Azzholez (Louder Mix)"

If you're one of DâM-FunK's 4,000+ Soundcloud subscribers, then you know he posts unreleased goodies for his adoring pupils of funk on the regular. But take note, his latest to hit the Internet, "We Should Kill All Azzholez (Louder Mix)," will be removed tonight. Inspired by the force of all things good and pure, DâM wrote, "I arose 2day & decided 2 stay in the 'Light'. I refuse 2 let the 'darkside' rule. This is why this latest creation: "Kill All Azzholez" aka K.A.A.  will get the 'delete button' treatment by sundown. *It will remain eternally a 'very rare 1' within a brutha's continuing musical evolution." --Ric Leichtung, Altered Zones via Prefix Magazine
