As anyone who has grabbed a free copy of my flip of Maribou State’s Olivia can probably tell, I’m into the grimier side of UK Funky. As such I thought it’d be right to point everyone in the direction of Pull It TV, a new video-interview series that has been showcasing an emerging crop of UK Funky producers who specialise in energetic dancefloor tracks.
Each well-edited video focuses on one producer/DJ, interspersing interview footage with clips of guest mixes on Nasty FM, Marcus Nasty’s Essex-based pirate station. The showcases promote the bashy underground of UK Funky: the sounds of DJ Spookz and Formula Musiq pull together the raw force of old Jungle with punchy drum-programming; Mr P and 86Baby lean closer to tribal house with a Grimey edge.
