Dam-Funk teamed up with Scion AV for the release of this new EP and the October tour. 10" vinyl release coming soon, but you can download it for free below. Hard to improve on the write-up Weiss posted, so we'll just quote ...
"Is there anything better than a new free Dam-Funk EP? No, there is not. More gorgeous PCH-ready modern funk, with Dam tweaking the formula ever so slightly. Make no mistake, at heart Damon Riddick has a musically omnivorous bent, with an equal ardor for soul, metal, jazz, techno, disco, and rock. Ask him about Prefab Sprout or Todd Rundgren and turn your tape recorder on to remember the recommendations. But at heart, he is a funkster, both traditional and experimental, futuristic and nostalgic. The Gemini Twin, a master of duality. InnaFocusedDaze is the appetizer for his next full length, due next year on Stones Throw."
