Last November, Yours Truly visited with Dam-Funk & Master Blazter to record a live version of “Songs From Scratch” (sound by Patrick Brown and Jorge Hernandez.) Capturing the talents of Master Blazter’s Computer Jay and J-1, the sexy funkiness the duo brings is undeniable. With Dam-Funk’s own electro-funk-boogie style singing and intermittent shout-outs to San Francisco, the video showcases the combination of musical capabilities each has to offer. Featured on Pitchfork.tv, the video shows some of the last footage of drummer, Jovan “J-1″ Coleman, before his untimely passing on November 27, 2011.
Dam-Funk issued the statement, “…R.I.P. 2 our brother J-1 (Jovan Coleman) aka THE DEER & drummer of Master Blazter. *We love U sincerely brother & we will always rep U!!” We at Different Fur echo that sentiment and are proud that we had the opportunity to work with J-1.
