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…

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.

 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!
