«funky house» - best artists
Funky house is a loose definition for a commercially orientated, disco influenced subgenre of house music. Like most varieties of house, the genre follows a traditional four to the floor house beat, and makes heavy use of synthesizers, samples and soulful vocals, though instrumental tracks are also common. Notable producers that have worked in this genre include the Freemasons, Soul Central, Armand van Helden, StoneBridge and Seamus Haji.
The genre is commercially popular, with record labels such as Ministry of Sound, Hed Kandi, and Fierce Angel all releasing compilation albums dedicated to the genre.
Confusingly the terms “house and funky”, and “funky” have also been used to describe an offshoot of the UK garage genre heavily based on funk samples and R&B style vocals over a “broken” soca style beat.
