Back in October before Dâm-Funk dropped his collaborative album with Snoop Dogg, 7 Days of Funk, he did a killer hour-long set for the Ray-Ban x Boiler Room 003 Treasure Island Festival 2-Room Broadcast. Now, the Boiler Room has made video of the full set available to watch on YouTube. The set kicks off with one of the most recognizable samples in hip-hop, Mtume’s “Juicy Fruit,” and transitions into a dozen more deep cuts. There’s nothing better than seeing a DJ’s appreciation for the music he loves put on full display; the moments when Dâm-Funk holds up his precious vinyls and throws his hands up in jubilant sing-along: priceless. He also takes to the mic to perform for a bit around the 39-minute mark.

sumthin

Ill Adrenaline Records and Da Beatminerz team up again to put out two dope unreleased remixes coming straight out the vaults from Mr. Walt and Evil Dee.
While the original version of “…Sumthin” (feat. Tash & Rah Digga) got a more funky vibe, the remix of this east coast/west coast collaboration banger is on the rough and rugged tip. Produced by Mr. Walt and featuring Tash of Tha Alkaholiks and Brick City’s Rah Digga, this remix was recorded back in the same year as the original version (1998) and shelved until now.

The b-side remix of Black Star’s (Mos Def & Talib Kweli) “Another World” is another amazing and unreleased remix of this classic tune. Just like the first remix, this drum driven and funky remix didn’t make it onto any release either. Da Beatminerz got hired to do several remixes of this track (originally produced by UK production crew The Creators) in ’98.

Classic Beatminerz production on both tracks!

7″ vinyl available on limited (100 copies) coke bottle clear vinyl and official black vinyl.
Coke bottle clear vinyl and cassette version exclusively being sold on the Ill Adrenaline website. Purchase the black vinyl here.
