SHREM'S DOUBLE TROUBLE: "LET ME BE ME" - Nite-Funk /// "SPACE BETWEEN US" - Ekkah x DāM-FunK
The modern funk wizard DāM-FunK joins electronic efforts with Nite Jewel and Ekkah for two irresistible oldskool flavoured dancefloor moments. Just on time for your Saturday night!
Nite Jewel, who has just released her 3rd studio album "Liquid Cool", is teaming up with the Californian producer under the alias Nite-Funk for a 1980's electro funk themed EP. The delectably catchy and sleekly arranged "Let Me Be Me" is an instant winner among the 4 tracks, echoing some of the sweetest post-disco, cosmic funk and 80's soul vibes. Here's hoping the Dj-Kicks exclusive "Can U Read Me" and this prolific 4-tracker hint a whole album from Dâm-Funk and Ramona Gonzalez aka Nite Jewel.
Perhaps even more surprising is DāM-FunK's collaboration with London POP duo Ekkah. Their synergetic double A-Side single "Space Between Us"/"What's Up" reminisce early Madonna, Zapp and Prince penned gems for Vanity 6. They wrote the luscious "Space Between Us" in memory of David Bowie. Without a doubt one of this year's most captivating POP moments.
