May 19, 2011 What a Tuesday for OC… Dâm Funk at Mesa – Cocoe & Steve Massa at Focus (5/24/11)
Over at Mesa you got…
Funkmaster Dâm Funk will be turning Mesa into a shrine for the spaced out cosmic electric funk that he has collected and curated throughout his journeys into time and space. As you might have guessed from the flyer, it’s a good idea to bring your 3D glasses. This is the only way to experience the sound to color synesthesia of Mr. Dâm Funk’s records. Be warned if you aren’t prepared you will remain in the two dimensional realm of predictability.
Here are some full length tracks from Dâm Funk courtesy of Habituate.
“The Telephone Call”
“I appreciate My Life”
And over at Focus you got…
I will wholeheartedly say my favorite nights at Focus have been the nights where locals takeover. Lately I have been more and more impressed by what OC has to offer, Cocoe & Massa are two of those offerings.
We are in luck, Cocoe just recently updated his soundcloud with a wide range of productions and collaborations. Here are some that stood out to me.
“Just Dance” (deep instrumental arrangement and vocal work on this)
“Brothas on Music” (luv the synth in this one)
Steve Massa is part of the Heartbeat crew and soundsystem, you might also remember Brian Kott, another Heartbeat member from one of the last Hometown Hero nights. (First time I caught Brian play some tunes he played some Metro Area). These guys are holding it down when it comes to that late night, lethargic, and elcectic house and tech sound. If my memory serves me correct, I think when I was at an Absurd underground my friend ran into Massa and got a mix cd, I’ll see if I can get a hold of that one. No worries though, here is a mix from Massa for right now.
“Live at Secret Cinema”
