View Full Version : Ghetto funk

I'm really getting into this sound as it provides me with remixed hiphop in a more structured way. I will be using it for opening sets as my usual style doesn't fit laid back early set times.

Does anyone have some good recommendations for where to find great tracks for this genre?

I've heard it described as glitch hop, nu funk and mid tempo too.. So that makes it all the more confusing!

I'm sure you have seen http://ghettofunk.co.uk/ If not, just follow the site. It has everything you need to get started.

As for shopping for tunes, go to Junodownload.com They have the best selection for nufunk/ghetto funk. Tons of stuff you can't get anywhere else!

Some labels to start you out.

Bomb Strikes
Insane Bangers
Breakbeat Paradise Recordings
Bombastic Jam
Disco Cakes
Big M Productions
Boogie Boutique
Ghetto Funk
Roca Records
Riddim Fruit
Scour Records
Booty Fruit
Home Breakin Records
Timewarp Music
Jalapeno Records
Fort Knox Recordings
Funk weapons
Super HI FI

Since a lot of nu-funk/ghetto funk is remixed old stuff(not worth paying royalties), a lot of it is given away for free. I mean really good stuff too!

The Ghetto Funk blog has a weekly soundcloud scour (changed to bi-weekly) worth checking out. They also give out tracks randomly. Check out the Icons Remixed 1-3 http://ghettofunk.co.uk/icons-remixed-free-album-download/ http://ghettofunk.co.uk/icons-vol-3-ghetto-funk-remixes-clips/ You may have to sign up at ghetto funk to get these.

http://freebreaksblog.com/ also has a nu-funk round up every 1-2 weeks. Really good site for stuff the ghetto funk blog missed!

Hope this helps out!

Edit: Here's a quick mashup I did a while back if you want it. :P This was posted in the Nufunk roundup #40 http://freebreaksblog.com/nufunk-round-up-40/

Emalkay - Fabrication (Craze's Loc'd Out Refix) vs Westside connection (mashup)

I love the stuff, ghetto funk has the icon vol. sets that are a great way to get started. Burn them to cd and listen to them when you are driving, something will come together for ghettofunk sets.
