A few days ago I was having a conversation with a good friend of mine and we were talking about music production, I then dropped Damu The Fudgemunk. Without being sidetracked with irrelevant innuendo, I started up my laptop and I commenced to go over some tracks off his instrumental LP, How It Should Sound Vol. 1 and 2, which released in 2010.
Let me tell you, some of those tracks were created between 2004 and 2007, and in 2012 they sound as timeless as any classic record of your favorite artist. For as technologically advance music producers have become today, Damu utilizes an old MPC 2000, Technics turntable, and samples/scratches records as if he were living in 80’s and 90’s. His musical creations have this warm analog sound that drives its wavelengths deep into the imagination and helps develop a shatter-proof comfort zone of jazz and soul tones.
Some of his videos on YouTube showcase his skills, especially this video filmed in 2009 titled Live on the MPC, where you literally see his beat-set on old floppy disks.
Other memorable videos is his How It Should Sound Promo #1 and #2, which goes into a short “a day in the life of” Damu The Fudgemunk and the lastest video “Hole Up” feat. Raw Poetic off the Kilawatt 1.5 EP.
How It Should Sound Vol. 1 and 2 is selling for a very low price of $4.99. Not bad for 28 tracks. Other album is his Supply and Demand.
