Toeachizown is the sprawling, two-and-a-half hour debut album from Stone's Throw's "Ambassador of Funk," Dam-Funk. It is made up of five installments: LAtrik, Fly, Life, Hood, and Sky, to be released throughout the fall of 2009. For this album, Dam-Funk drew from his influences, from big names like Prince to the little known funk pioneers from his hometown in L.A. His self-proclaimed "electric-space-funk" is produced with analog synths and vintage drum machines, and divided thematically between the volumes of the set -- for example, LAtrik got its name because it's the most "electric" of the five. Clever, no?
