Digging for Ghettofunk

I just love how the ghettofunk does the job. There’s really no need to push it full tilt at 10 PM with some full on 135+ BPM dancefloor slayers (OK, maybe there is on occasion…) but if you’re ever caught in a spot where you just want to do it to the crowd – you may have knocked off the odd Moombahton, hiphop, reggae, or ghettofunk….

Chances are, if you are an aficionado of the ghettofunk sound you’ve already bookmarked GhettoFunk.co.uk but where else do you go for the goodness?  Here’s a few links I like hitting up, even though sometimes the material overlaps…it’s good to be thorough…

freebreaksblog.posterous.com/

Free breaks blog has been sourcing out great breaks, and is no stranger to the phonk de la ghetto.

Searching Soundcloud for tracks tagged ‘ghettofunk’ is a good way to filter through the soundcloud network.

Wefunk radio has been blasting out the funk for years.  What I especially like about this site is how you can go into the show archives, look at the entire show’s playlist, and click on any particular song to check it out.  I’ll copy paste tracks / artists names into a list – then take that list to iTunes / Google to track down where to buy these songs from.  Biggups to wefunkradio – you have an amazing site, so thanks.

Why not start with some proper funk.   Ghettofunk is built on this stuff, and you should get familiar with some of the classics.  Most DJ’s will already have the tools available to grab some old classic funk and beef it up with a few loops from your library.   With a bit of prep time, you can mash up a winner in no time.

The bootleg blog has a nic ghettofunk category worth checking out.

 http://www.mixcloud.com

Mixcloud is a good source for full length ghettofunk tagged mixes.   Here you can check out a mix and get some ideas from the tracklists provided.

 Thank Nufunk It’s Friday

these fellas have been pulling funk off the net for some time and doing a fine job at it.   Bookmark this now.

 

Well that’s a start….as I find more places for sourcing out good beefed up funk, nufunk and ghettofunk (or however you want to call it…) I’ll add them here.  Hope this helps!   Keep it funkeh!

Free music! breakbeat downloads

   Everyone likes free music, and I appreciate it when someone takes the time to hunt down some decent breaks tunes for me.   So I am going on a mission now and again to return the favor and provide some links to free breakbeats and fat beats for you to download.   Enjoy this first installment….

 

First tune comes courtesy of Freq Nasty, an old time veteran of breaks.  Here’s a remix of South Arfican Die Antwoord’s “I Fink U Freeky.”  While I am providing you with a soundcloud widget to preview it – you’ll need to hop on over to Facebook to get the tune

 

I had the pleasure of meeting Shack from Elite Force at this years Breakspoll party in London…

Elite Force jprime

…and just found this link to some material that they are giving out….don’t sleep on this – there’s a bunch of tracks to choose from…. http://www.eliteforcemusic.com/RVMPD2/

Boom – enjoy that for now….back in a bit after this break…

   It’s a good day when you put together a full mix of all your own tracks. Okay, granted a few of these are remixes of our work, and in a couple cases we remixed it up….but this mix has a bunch of our own Vipercorps original material, some of it unreleased and fresh off the press.
Hope you enjoy…
