You may have read our Rest-In-Power wishes towards the recently departed Master Blazter drummer Javon “J-1″ Coleman (see his last known performance on video here) but if you never got the chance to see DaM-FunK & MB perform live, you may not have known what dude was all about. That stops now. To get an idea, check this instrumental track “Slang Talk”–an outtake from the Starship 27, Vol. 2 compilation on Insect Records which drops in digital and vinyl form March 29th.
Curated entirely by J1, the comp features the work of OKP stalwarts ranging from Black Spade & Coultrain to Houseshoes to Eric Lau to Kev Brown to Georgia Anne Muldrow (not to mention DaM-Funk himself and the third blazter in Master Blazter, Computer Jay). *More importantly* proceeds from the sale go towards Javon’s family. Like somebody wise once said, you never know what you’ve got ’til it’s gone. Now we know.
