UK Funky is a definitive British sound.
A modern UK club staple, it's swift rise fused London bass culture fragments alongside soca and house innovations to forge something truly special.
With its heavy percussive appeal and frequent use of soulful vocals, UK Funky offered something distinguished as the 21st century began to find its feet.
Often under-rated, Rinse decided to honour UK Funky with the inaugural entry of its 'I Love:' series.
A mixture of newly commissioned content and live events, I Love: Funky hits London super-club Ministry Of Sound this weekend (October 9th) for a multi-room spectacular.
Ahead of this, DJ Pioneer decided to look back through the crates for a very special Clash DJ Mix, focussing on some formative club favourites.
A mixture of all-out UK Funky classics, neglected cuts, and personal choices, DJ Pioneer's UK Funky survey is the ideal introduction to this unique sound.
