OH DAMN....DATS FUNKY
UK Funky is, as I understand it a particularly fast, drum-driven genre of house music. A lot of the time I find it repetetive, but here are a few select tracks that really got me movin'. Props as usual to Apes With Barrels and XLR8R.
BANGER BANGER BANGER. Opens with these intense tribal drums, then drops into a super nasty house groove, complete with squelchy bassline. It even has a dubstep breakdown at one point. This sucker really moves.
Joy Orbison is a champion of this whole Funky/post-dubstep/whatever-the-fuck-it-is-they're-calling-it-now sound, and I dig his stuff. This is a really cool track, very chill and deep but with a sub bass that could melt faces, not unlike that Subwave liquid track I posted a while back.
