But it’s none of that rap. This is straight R&B.
In addition to being a rapper and producer, Vitamin D is a good DJ, which is a hard to define quality until you hear a good DJ mix. “Funk on Sight” is that, a blended entity of disco/electro funk songs from the ’70s and ’80s with some of Vitamin D’s signature scratching.
He released “Funk on Sight” via his twitter, and then re-uploaded his “Bornday” EP, which was released earlier this year. If you haven’t listened to that, get it. One of the best local “freEP” rap releases of 2010.
