Dayton Flic

Yer humble host was doin' some websurfing on Dayton Funk, as that's how he first heard of Dayton, as a young'n highschooler in redneck Louisville suburbia.

Lo and behold lookee here...and update on the old skool funk scene:

..and don't you just love the skyline scene in the background, too?

"Back in the day, (that would be 1982 - Dayton, Ohio Y’all) Jenny Douglas, Chris Bowman, Roger “the Dodger” Parker and Jared Michael Nickerson laid tracks reel-to-reel stylee in Dean Bowman’s basement studio.
A few takes and a few mixes later, Dayton Flic & The Music Suite came to life.

Fast forward to 1999, with a bassline and a hook, Jared Michael Nickerson did a taste of tracking at the home of guitarist/engineer Chris Bowman back in the Gem City and in 2007, enlisted the fabulous Justice Dilla-X on vocals at Eric Ronick’s Thin Man Studios in Brooklyn, N.Y. to top off Takin You Back and T.Y.B. remix.

- The result, as described by Dusty Groove America - “Basement soul grooves that reach for the cosmos.”

Beautiful find!

That does take me back to some great times for Dayton and Dayton funk. It's nice to see that coming out of the basement!
