The album features Snoop Dogg, Flea, Jody Watley, Q-Tip, Ariel Pink, Nite Jewel and more. Damon 'Dam-Funk' Riddick is the epitome of funk. Ever since debuting on Stones Throw in 2008, Dam-Funk has become one of the genre's most passionate proselytisers. In 2013, he released a celebrated album in partnership with hip-hop's Snoop Dogg, '7 Days of Funk'. Fresh for '15, Dam returns with a solo project nearly six years in the making: 'Invite the Light'. Dam's partnership with Stones Throw includes everything from his 2009 LP 'Toeachizown' and 'Adolescent Funk', a 2010 anthology of early productions, to 2013's 7 Days of Funk. As always, Dam flexes his multi-instrumentalist talents by handling all the production but still makes time for guests including rapper Q-Tip, the father-son duo of Leon Sylvers III and IV, and funk giant Junie Morrison of the Ohio Players, who opens and closes the album with dire warnings of what could happen in a world without funk. Rest assured, Dam is here to make sure that never comes to pass. As he puts it, "funk is the underdog, the black sheep of black music," and if that's true, Dam-Funk is its shepherd.
