Funky House

Funky house is a subgenre of house music that uses funk or disco samples, a funk or disco-inspired bass line or a strong soul influence, combined with drum breaks that draw inspiration from 1970s and 1980s funk or disco records.[1] The use of disco strings are also common in the genre, although not always.

The genre is commercially popular, with record labels such as Defected Records, Ministry of Sound, Hed Kandi, and Fierce Angel all releasing compilation albums dedicated to the genre.[2][3] It was particularly successful in the early and mid 2000s (decade).[4]
