Funktronic Icon DĀM-FUNK Remixes Track From New Todd Rundgren Album!


Los Angeles, CA - When legendary producer/songwriter Todd Rundgren went looking for special guests to collaborate with on his newest album White Knight (released 5/12/17 by Cleopatra Records) one of the more surprising yet enormously successful choices was electro R&B superstar DāM-FunK. The two collaborated on the stellar track “I Got Your Back,” fusing Rundgren’s jazz art rock with DāM’s ultra smooth e-piano grooves. Now, DāM returns to the track and offers up a new vision of their collaboration, a “Re-Freak” that adds more bottom heavy synths and new vocals sung by DāM. The result is a delight for fans of both Todd and DāM and is currently available on all digital platforms courtesy of Cleopatra Records.

About their collaboration, DāM had this to say, “Working with one of my heroes in music was a genuine pleasure. His progressive mind when it comes to all things music, without losing his soul in it, is such an inspiration to me and in what I humbly try to contribute to music listeners and aspire to. As the song says, ‘I got your back, Todd.’”

As a bonus, the digital single will come with a special “b-side” - the first downloadable release of Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross’s remix of their Rundgren collab “Deaf Ears!”

Fresh off his latest run with Ringo Starr which ends tomorrow, November 16, Todd continues his “White Knight” headline tour beginning November 17 and ending New Year’s Eve at the Saban Theater in Beverly Hills. For more info on the tour, visit: http://www.todd-rundgren.com/tr-tour.html

Rock Review: Aunt Mary-New Dawn

Release Date: 12th February 2016 Label: Wind-Up Website
Aunt Mary, as a name, somehow suggests an “older” band and it came as no real surprise to find that they are a Norwegian prog band from the 70’s. The band were considered by many to be one of the best prog bands in Norway with their brand of music a mixture of heavy hard rock tunes plus clear indications of a more symphonic nature, although that only really showed itself on their 3rd, and last, studio album, Janus, in 1973. Last that is, until now, with the release of New Dawn. This would appear to be an apt title for a release which follows 24 years after an album of blues covers, released in 1992. 

At their height, Aunt Mary were “up there” with the likes of Deep Purple, Ten Years After, King Crimson, Jethro Tull and many more. After the release of Janus in 1973, the band split up but did a few sporadic appearances, as well as releasing the blues covers album mentioned earlier.

3 years ago, the Norwegian guitar legend and producer, …

New Age Instrumental Review: Anaya Music-AONKI – Gateway of Love (Cosmic New Age Music)

Release Date: February 2, 2018 Label: Anaya Music Website
Around this time a year ago I had the experience of listening to Anaya Music and providing coverage of Eternity.  It was an uplifting experience and a memorable listen as I recall.
Now with February drawing closer AONKI – Gateway of Love (Cosmic New Age Music) will arrive.
Once again, the recording features several exceptional collaborations between Anaya Music and a live virtual symphony orchestra recorded in the heart of Prague, the capital of the Czech republic. The orchestra combines members of the finest ensembles in Prague, including the Czech Philharmonic.
I think they should rename the orchestra to “The Live Spiritual Orchestra.” If you have been exposed to Anaya Music you will understand what that means. If this is your first journey with this music you will find out very quickly. Either way, this is spiritually uplifting music that leaves a smile on your soul. It’s like the term digital footprint, there is an everlasting m…

Jazz Fusion-Rock-Pop-Funk Review: Project Grand Slam-Trippin’

Release Date: June 29, 2018 Label: Cakewalk Records Website
This will be my sixth voyage into the world of Project Grand Slam (PGS). So, what is this experience going to be like this time? I would expect the same great combination of jazz, rock, funk, and pop that I always enjoyed.

Just so you all know PGS is: Robert Miller (bass), Mario Castro (saxophones), Bayden Goyo (keyboards), Joel E. Mateo (drums), Guillermo Barron Rios (percussion), Tristan Clark (guitar) and the beautiful Ms. Ziarra Washington (vocals).

So, now we are Trippin’ into 2018 with PGS. And the first track titled “1972” was like turning on the radio and hearing the Average White Band or Tower of Power. Yes sir, on the AM dial, it came blaring through back in those days. 

The title track is a real gas too. This number has some great sax from Castro and a killer rhythm section courtesy of Miller and Mateo. It shines the spotlight on them clear and bright. Let me tell you, those two are like the dynamic duo, kind of like a p…
