Damu The Fudgemonk is undobtedy one of the most interesting producer/emcees to have hit the scene in past few years. He's been around longer than that though. His style is known for dropping quality material, taking inspiration and sample sources from everythinng from classic jazz, soulful funk, reagge and of course hip-hop.
Often creating terrific hip-hop beats heavily influenced by the jazz scene of the late '50s to early '80s, realaying on instruments like vibraphoes, acoustic pianos and the overall mood of bop, Damu is one of those MPC instrumentalists who, unlike some beatmakers, packs the quality to both appeal to jazz and undergrund hip-hop heads. Damu's latest endeavor on Redefinition Records is a vinyl EP from Damu called "Spur Moment Trailer" which features "Fade's 'Em Gone (Organ Grinder)" which you'll find at the bottom of this post via Redef's Sooundcloud . Other choice cuts include "Redef Mission Statement", "Assembly Line", "Meadows", to name a few.
The EP is available now from Redefinition Records, and I strongly suggest you pick this one up as ReDef constantly knows how to get rid of filler meterial whether it a long or short porject. Order the CD or LP here.
