Boomkat Product Review:
Stones Throw's Peanut Butter Wolf digs deep into Dam-Funk's tape archives to present a "new" album recorded 1988-1992. 'Adolescent Funk' features some of Dam's very earliest joints, created with his favoured setup of Linn drum machine, Korg M1, and Casio SK1. This is the real deal DIY boogie business, all recorded straight onto cassette, yet sounding remarkably well finished and articulate. These are all proper songs, which would have lain languishing in some corner of his cupboard had it not been for PBW's insistence. Boogie nuts should just peep the super-slick vibes of 'I Like Your Big Azz (Girl)', or 'Do You Feel Like I Feel?' for instant gratification, but for us it's the punky piece of 'It's My Life' and the Disco/House style cuts 'I Love Life' or the heavy drums and off-the-dome vocals of 'The Telephone Call' that shed light on a very different side of Dam Funk's unique style. Recommended.
