blame it on Shake June 30, 2016

Back in 2010, Los Angeles’ own groove gawd DaM-Funk and singer Ramona Gonzalez (Nite Jewel) announced they were joining forces as Nite-Funk and would release an EP in the near future.

Unfortunately, it never arrived. But now, six years later, the duo are finally ready to release their self-titled EP, tomorrow, on July 1st!

Getting the ball rolling last week with “Let Me Be Me,” Nite-Funk return with one last offering off the project called “Don’t Play Games.”

“I had been thinking a lot about how some dudes I know front like they wanna be with someone or be in a relationship, but really deep down are afraid or intimidated by unhinged desire,” Ramona told The FADER. “Which is why I say, like I’m whispering into his ear: I’m ready, don’t play games with me.”

Recorded in a downtown L.A. studio, as the sun was setting, with an orangish, bronze sky over skyscrapers, DaM-Funk and Nite Jewels’ “Don’t Play Games” can be heard below.

Press play and vibe out — which, you’ll have no choice but to do — and be sure to pick up Nite-Funk on iTunes at midnight.

UPDATE: As promised, Dam-Funk and Nite Jewel’s Nite-Funk EP is now available on iTunes.
