“If you asked us what UK Funky – the bastard son of grime, funky house and hard house (bantons) – should sound like, we’d probably just record that first OOH TELL ME from ‘Do You Mind’ and stick it on a sixty minute loop.

Bbut then we’re idiots rather than acclaimed DJs. Past FACT mix contributor Grievous Angel is an acclaimed DJ, and his digital Funky Manifesto compilation is the way he envisions the genre in a perfect world.”

Funky Manifesto: a compilation of superb UK Funky radio rips

f

This is not a mix. Rather, this is a compilation of the best UK Funky I could find, taken from radio shows. I’m NOT pretending I have these tunes. Rather, I’m showcasing the best in UK Funky. Because, while funky is wonderful, there’s a lot of tunes out there I don’t like that much, and I wanted an hour of music I could point that would say, “this is what I want. This is what I want to make.” Something that would be, for want of a better word, a manifesto of what Funky could be; what I think it should be. I’m not very geeky about funky, or at least not yet, I just love it and listen to it and make it, so I don’t know many of the tunes on here. Probably someone like Queen of Sheba or Paul Autonomic knows every single one, but I don’t. The lyrics tab has timings of the radio shows and podcasts that I’ve taken the rips from.

What I do know is that this stuff absolutely rocks. Funky skeptics, start here.
