Dâm-Funk Is 'Above the Fray' on New Album
Hear the title track from the upcoming instrumental LP
Published Jul 20, 2021After wrapping his Architecture release series earlier this year, Dâm-Funk has detailed his second release of 2021. New album Above the Fray arrives July 30 through the artist's Glydezone Recordings imprint.
Announcing the effort on Instagram, Dâm-Funk shared that the 10-song, all-instrumental Above the Fray was entirely produced, record and played by himself.
While this year's Architecture III and two previous instalments of that series were geared towards house music, Above the Fray will slide back into "Modern-Funk." You can hear its title track in the player below.
Of his latest, Dâm-Funk shared in a statement, "In 2015 I did an album called Invite the Light.… I invited the light back then which brought me above the fray. I've been learning that I want to keep the narrative positive and uplifting, I want to humbly interject into the game cats like myself who on any given day can listen to 'Black Superman' by Above the Law and at the same time listen to Larry Heard, Prince, Happy the Man, Barry White, or Prefab Sprout."
