Welcome to the new WASHINGTON CLASSICS online store October 31 2014
The internationally renowned producer and emcee Funky DL and his imprint 'Washington Classics proudly present this new online store featuring a whole host of new and classic merchandise in both physical and digital form.
It has been an exciting year for DL, having completed his law degree and stepping back into the music industry full time, he is taking no prisoners by branching into clothing, returning to vinyl releases and lining up some more exciting releases before the end of 2014.
Funky DL felt this was an exciting time to launch a new Washington Classics T-Shirt collection with the view to expand into other lines in the very near future. Catering for both male and female, the first line of tees are an upper end line produced using a premium urban brushed fabric featuring designs stemming from various Funky DL song titles. These tees were designed aiming at a 'cool and classic' feel so that the garments enhance and compliment the casual look with style.
The store's CD collection hosts various compact disc releases over the years of Funky DL's discography. Some as vintage as "The Classic Fantasy" from 2003, to more recent CD releases such as "February: A Rest In Beats Tribute To The Sounds of J Dilla & Nujabes". There is a store launch "special offer" where any CD of your choice from the CD collection can be bundled with any T-Shirt to create a $10 saving on your purchase (subject to availability). All CD's are overwrapped to ensure they are new discs and in pristine condition.
The very first vinyl release for Washington Classics since 2007 is marked with a very special limited edition Japan flag themed coloured vinyl of DL's classic "Nights In Nippon Jazzstrumentals Album" (N.I.N.J.A.). Originally released on CD and MP3 in 2012, Nights In Nippon has become one of the most popular Funky DL albums to date. The 10 tracks will guide the listener through Funky DL's feeling and appreciation for the vibe of various cities and town in Japan, whilst offering a smooth and chill flavour for the keen jazz / hip-hop enthusiast. The vinyl collection within the store also showcases other Funky DL releases (including albums, EP's and 12-inches), some of which have never before been available in a physical form from Washington Classics online.
Funky DL's MP3 catalogue is highly comprehensive and so we felt it best to house only the mega-bundle download sets in this store (with customers having the option to go to Bandcamp, iTunes, Spotify etc for individual releases). The bundle downloads include a mega 19-album instrumental album bundle with over 200 Funky DL instrumentals for your listening pleasure. For those who prefer vocal only albums, there's a 6-album bundle featuring the last 6 albums from the Funky DL studio vocal album discography.
Whatever you decide, we hope this new store offers products that you will enjoy time and time again and a service that satisfies your every need. So spread the word, the new official Washington Classics merchandise online store is officially open!
