The vinyl for The Du-Rites’ latest finally arrived. Shipping now – can’t you hear these tape guns firing?! Pre-order and preview a few cuts from the album on our Bandcamp and it drops everywhere this Friday, Nov. 13!
Had a blast talking about my favorite songs of all time on Let the Record Show Podcast. Out of the ten I chose, we got to seven of them. From the funk of Kool and the Gang and Slave; to the jazz drumming wizardry of the great Jack DeJohnette to the over the top rap bravado of Schoolly D, Tim Dog and Jheri Curl era Ice Cube, it’s a tour of my wide array of musical influences.
The Du-Rites on Bedroom Beethovens Podcast! This was a good chat. A lot of ground covered, including recording our new album during a pandemic with the world seemingly falling apart, Pablo’s unique history and how one bad SXSW show ended one career and started another for me.
Enjoy and our album ‘A Funky Bad Time’ drops November 13.
Pre-Order vinyl at thedurites.bandcamp.com
Podcast also on Spotify
and Apple Music
A live/rehearsal rendition of a tune from our upcoming ‘A Funky Bad Time’ LP. Pablo, me and as a bonus we have Bill Harvey adding some bass to a tune that has no bassline!
Pre-Order A Funky Bad Time here for vinyl and digital.
Album drops November 13 in all formats.
So we’re in the middle of a pandemic with our iPhones and iMovie. And I’m not Hype Williams. That said, I put together a fun, low-stakes video for The Du-Rites ‘ “Can’t Buy Groove” in socially distanced fashion to the best of my ability. Enjoy and pre-order for the new album A Funky Bad Time is HERE or in the video description. “Can’t Buy Groove” is available on Bandcamp now as a single or with the album purchase. It’ll be on all streaming services October 16th.
The Du-Rites fifth LP in five years drops November 13th on Bandcamp (vinyl, digital) and on all streaming sites worldwide, but the pre-order for the vinyl and digital begin today! A Funky Bad Time is just that – times may be bad in 2020, but it doesn’t mean they can’t be funky. And the badder times get, the funkier you have to be.
Pre-order the vinyl LP and/or digital download (which comes free if you order the vinyl anyway) here on our Bandcamp and get 4 of the 12 tunes plus one Bandcamp-only bonus track.
Between the launch of this pre-order and release day, we’ll be back with a music video, little rehearsal vignettes for the album and more! Stay tuned and thanks for your support. #afunkybadtime
A lil snippet of “Can’t Buy Groove” from The Du-Rites’ upcoming A Funky Bad Time album. Too much time on Reverb buying overpriced vintage gear when you could just buy the cheapest sh*t and make it funky as possible. We all guilty. Album drops November, preorders at thedurites.bandcamp.com Oct. 2
