Dam-Funk at Union Pool in 2011 (more by Erez Avissar)
Dam Funk

Professor of the groove Dam-Funk is one of the many artists on board for Northside Festival this year. He'll team up with The Rub for a show on June 17th at Brooklyn Bowl. Tickets are on sale or you can try to get in with your Northside badge.

The show is one of two East Coast dates (the other is in Florida) for the California beatmaster thus far. He's also got some West Coast dates sandwiched in between trips to Europe, and you can catch himat a few festivals this summer including Seattle's Capitol Hill Block Party, Oya, Belgium Dour Festival, and more.

In other news, Dam-Funk recently posted the following to his Facebook page

If none of Dr. Dre's people reach out to the G.F.F.'s DaM-FunK to contribute to "Detox" then, it WILL NEVER BE be a 'true' representation of 'Los Angeles'. Period.

- G.F.F.

Detox is Dr. Dre's long-in-the-works follow-up to 2001. No word from the Dr. Dre camp regarding said comment, but you can check out some potentially Dre-worthy new Dam-Funk tracks below. Personally, I can't think of any artist that sounds more "California" and ready-made to pump out of a low-rider than Dam-Funk.

Those new tracks, two videos, and a list of all dates below...
