Kudos to Waxpoetics Magazine for its hot new redesign and also for this very solid (albeit short) free MP3 mixtape courtesy of new funk ambassador and worldwide DJ sensation Dam Funk (pronounced Dame Funk)! The mix is complete with Dam Funk’s fresh new take on the Prince classic 17 Days, which is actually pretty cool as a more bare bones feel than the original. While we certainly missed the Purple One’s original vocals, we appreciate the creativity and effort. He also digs deep in the crates and pulls one of our favorite tracks from the bootleg bins, All My Dreams. We were also super happy to see One Man Jam from the 94 East project, the recording of which predates Prince’s debut LP. Well conceived and executed.
