“14 tracks opening up UK Funky”

Perhaps not the most alluring genre-heading in electronic music, Funky House, or UK Funky, or just UKF for those with shorter attention spans, is currently the most invigorated and lively branch of British urban music. The sound of UKF is typified by refurbished House music templates injected with elements of Soca, broken beat, dub and African music, sometimes fashioned into R&B style vocal smashers, but often stripped into dark yet party-fied instrumental anthems. Put another way, UKF is basically a toughened and stripped, yet fluid and sexy House music often made by ex-grime producers, with traces of their former style still apparent in the predilection for African rhythm flavours and sub heavy grooves. UKF is a sound primed and honed for the dance, making it anathema to the introspective head-nodding code employed by certain schools of Dubstep, and its precisely that party attitude that imbues this music with the vibrancy and energy that's been impossible to ignore over the last couple of years. This 14 track selection focuses on the largely instrumental and sub-driven end of UKF, with a few auto-tuned choruses and peak-time anthems thrown in for good measure. Listen up, get fresh and, most importantly, party hard...

“14 tracks newsletter”

Apologies for those of you who received a messed up 14 tracks newsletter today, it was a "tell a friend" email someone had sent and for some unknown reason it attached itself to our newsletter. obviously it was unintended - sorry!

“LD”

his production is staggering. probably the most underrated producer around at the moment. anyone hear the animal collective remix? amazing.

On 24 Jun 14:07 Moo said:

Yeah, was wondering who Casey was and why you were calling me a Tithead. Bit uncalled for! Great selection as usual.

“Wonder why I was being called a Tithead”

“lots of artists you've featured before”

lots of your regularly featured dubstep associated artists here and not many who are purely from the funky scene - no Donaeo, FootSteps, Apple, Tribal Audio, Roska etc?

“U.K. Funky”

Big inna scene innit. Props for this collection.

“corrected ;)”

i stand corrected. i guess i meant the selection was quite/tech, and maybe lacked the glam chick rather than the hooded bloke illustration which is more dubstep to me, but that's my take and it is boomkat

On 25 Jun 09:32 Jack said:

“Nice....”

Good selection of UKF - I'd really like Boomkat to start stocking more of this stuff. The selection at the moment is a bit thin, and you'd probably corner the market since the other sites that offer UKF downloads are over-priced and terrible to navigate.
