If there is a musical genre that was inspired by the R&B tradition and inspired the current scene in such a way most of its interpreters are paying tribute to it through sampling, it's definitely funk.

If it was once defined in dictionaries as body odor or the smell of sexual intercourse, commonly has been regarded as coarse or indecent, African-American musicians originally applied "funk" to music with a slow, mellow groove, then later with a hard-driving, insistent rhythm because of the word's association with sexual intercourse.

I'm gonna put up a series of 1 hour-each mixes to underline the importance of the influence of funk on nowadays's rhythms.

A good basic starter for people looking to feel the top o the charts type funk. I hope as you continue the series you will get deeper into the funk. Much love
