Funky style is a dance music genre that emerged from the fusion of various music genres that were popular among African Americans in the mid-20th century.
Some of the past or classic trends or influences in funky style are:
  • James Brown: He is widely regarded as the "Godfather of Soul" and the "Father of Funk".
    He was one of the first artists to use a rhythmic, danceable form of music that emphasized the groove and the bass line.
    James Brown also influenced many breakers and uprockers with his energetic and expressive dance moves.
  • DJ Kool Herc: He is credited as the originator of hip-hop music and culture.
    Kool Herc invented the technique of using two turntables and a mixer to isolate and extend the break beat, which is the most percussive and rhythmic part of a funk or soul record.
    He also hosted block parties in the Bronx, where he played funk records for dancers and MCs.
  • The Funk Styles: This is a group of street dance styles that originated in California in the 1970s.
    They include locking, popping, boogaloo, and roboting.
    This group is characterized by sharp, angular, and robotic movements that contrast with the fluidity of breaking.
    The Funk Styles were inspired by various sources, such as cartoons, sci-fi movies, mime artists, and soul singers.
    Some of the pioneers of these styles are Don Campbell (the creator of locking), Boogaloo Sam (the creator of popping and boogaloo), and Pete Robot (the creator of roboting).
  • Parliament-Funkadelic: This is a collective of musicians led by George Clinton that produced some of the most influential funk albums in the 1970s and 1980s.
    They combined elements of psychedelic rock, soul, jazz, and Afrofuturism to create a unique sound and aesthetic that they called "P-Funk".
    Parliament-Funkadelic also introduced concepts such as the "Mothership Connection", which was a metaphor for a cosmic connection between black people and their ancestral roots.
  • Prince: He is one of the most versatile and influential artists in funk history.
    He blended funk with pop, rock, R&B, new wave, and synth-pop to create his own distinctive style.
    Prince also played multiple instruments, wrote and produced his own songs, and performed with charisma and flair.
    This artist influenced many artists across different genres, such as Michael Jackson, Madonna, Beyoncé, and Bruno Mars.
