As all of you know, I'm obsessed with French House.
Well today, I'm going to take you to the roots of true, funky French House. I'm not going back as far as Jazz and Early Funk, because that's not electronic. I am going to cover one of my favorite genres of all time, Electrofunk.
Since I ditched you guys two days ago, I decided to unleash one of my big guns today. This track is the definition of Electrofunk. It's so damn catchy and funky, and has a talkbox in it :-D. Electrofunk is a very simple genre. Just take some of the Funk from the 70s, and add some synth action to it.
Now how is this the roots? Well, the fabulous French were inspired by this great music and took it, filtered it, and made it robotic and amazing, while still mainting the true funky roots. I hope you guys enjoy this song, because I know I do. A fantastic riff replays several times and each time, it's more and more amazing. So have fun with it.
Also, please help me keep this blog alive. I don't want to end up spending a lot of time to entertain 5 kids a day. So please, advertise it, and you will be repaid greatly with my apreciation. Just help keep the blog alive! I have fun doing this and I don't want to have to stop :-/.
So anyway here's the track from our Funky Bunch, Zapp & Roger.
