Speaking to his label Stones Throw, Dam Funk said of Sky :
'Sky' is the final chapter of my 5-part presentation of Toeachizown. I chose to round out the set on a totally positive vibe & level of sound with these songs. Joints like “The Sky Is Ours” (MP3) I feel captures positive & uplifting vibes while still remaining based in the 'Funk' yet, with new types of chords & arrangements being experimented with + vocals throughout this particular song. I consider “The Sky Is Ours” to be one of my signature compositions in regards to sound, style, arrangement, drums, vocals, & keyboard playing. I'm very proud of this one.
I'm glad that it was able to be released 'officially' on this project. I also hope U dig the rest of the joints contained on 'Sky'. With “Nu-Frontiers” I got to pull out my silver-sparkled Slingerland drum set and funk out for a bit, real tough for U. It, as with 99% of all my material, was 'recorded live' from beginning to end. “Spacecapades” is for the ultra critical headz whom hold the opinion that a lot of my stuff 'sounds the same'. Pleeaaaze! Just give “Spacecapades” a whirl, will ya'? 'New-Wave-Funk' vibes on that one, as well as on the joint “Fantasy”. Both made from the heart & without any irony attached, whatsoever. "Come On Outside" is a vocal joint that I hope U dig, which invites U to do just what it says: “Come On Outside & Won't U Funk Wit' Me”.
It's long overdue y'all. And, I chose to close 'Sky' out with “Keep Lookin' 2 The Sky”, which I hope we ALL remember to do whenever we get low on this rock.
