From Grievous Angel:

This is not a mix. Rather, this is a compilation of the best UK Funky I could find, taken from radio shows. I’m NOT pretending I have these tunes. Rather, I’m showcasing the best in UK Funky. Because, while funky is wonderful, there’s a lot of tunes out there I don’t like that much, and I wanted an hour of music I could point that would say, “this is what I want. This is what I want to make.” Something that would be, for want of a better word, a manifesto of what Funky could be; what I think it should be. I’m not very geeky about funky, or at least not yet, I just love it and listen to it and make it, so I don’t know many of the tunes on here. Probably someone like Queen of Sheba or Paul Autonomic knows every single one, but I don’t. The lyrics tab has timings of the radio shows and podcasts that I’ve taken the rips from.

What I do know is that this stuff absolutely rocks. Funky skeptics, start here.
