    this was on invasion records, produced by either OB or MA1 iirc, so I guess its fine to call it '1st wave' funky then. luvvit
    YES

    The MA1 connection makes sense as it was around the same time as 'Give It Up To Me' the MA1 mix which had a similar vibe and which I absolutely loved also.

    Thanks

    BTW are you on radio at all? I feel like you should be

    Can anyone point me to some mixes similar to this (Essentially UK Funky drums with Jackin Bass/ House & Bass- style bass):

    Req: Lighter - Skanker

    I've managed to source the vinyl for this but not sure on quality, would anyone be kind enough to send me the version that was available on Dubplate.net? Been after this for ages!

    I feel there is a tide of percussive, syncopated, drum oriented tracks coming back into UK dance, uk funky was there then it went quiet... dunno maybe gqom and other african electronic genres' growing influence is leading sounds back in that direction. It's interesting hearing TSVI playing old tribal house tracks in his sets

    Can you give examples?

    Feel like the rise of afrobeat music from LDN Artists is a bit of a funky resurgence on the sly. Not even that sly when you consider Ill Blu are producing MoStack.

    its mostly "fringe" stuff I guess, maybe i'm just cherry picking from my own tastes..just feel i've been finding alot more of the kind of percussive tracks that blend so well with funky and afro-house. Maybe it's more people playing out artists like niggafox, dotorado pro, hagan, gqom etc in their sets than it being produced directly in the ldn continuum or whatever, but the bongos are back

    Love some of those bits you just posted. (Gives me a bit of inspiration to produce again cos it sounds like something I COULD conceivably make... Just like funky was.)
