House tunes that UK funky showed us were not boring

Big thread.


I played on Live FM for a few months in about 2011, towards the end of when it was good. But yeah 2008ish is when it was fire.

All these tunes are great third, although I can't really imagine them fitting into a funky set. Dunno if it's a question of vibe or rhythm?

The cheesiness of some of the tunes that DID pop up in funky sets is part of what I love about them. Cheesiness was baked into uk funky from the start, along with the grimeyness - in fact those two things were two sides of the same coin, somehow.

That's why I felt some type of way about that FACT article about Beneath which was essentially saying UK funky was alright but what it REALLY needed was dark atmospherics and souped up production values.
