The difference between nu-funk and ghetto funk

Post by nic_ » Thu Apr 26, 2012 4:29 am

Nufunk is more organic with its sounds, like funky breaks/big beat.. I see it as a name to separate itself from the word Breaks as i remember years ago in Sydney if you rocked up to a venue and said you played breaks, they always though of the harder styles but when you said Nufunk it softened the sound... Genres always start out and as it gets bigger people bring in new names to suit the style of production and thats when Nufunk came along.. Nufunk isnt as big as what it use to be as Ghetto Funk seems to be more the flava these days..


GhettoFunk is a progression from Nufunk with Bigger Synth basslines and was more Hip Hop Sample Based which is why the "ghetto" came into ..

GF is big around 110bpm vibe where Nufunk was 120bpm.. In saying that you'll find a lot of GF or Nufunk sounds fit into most BPM ranges which is one of the great things about breaks..

Im sure i could go on & on about it but thats a simple break down in my opinion..
This might be of interest to the breaks crew - its the difference between 'nufunk' and 'ghettofunk'

No the quote I provided above explains the difference. I'd even go so far as to say its not breaks as in the fingerlicking funky type breaks at all?

Nah, they are the same thing imo, and both fit under the breaks umbrella.


aside: this thing nic_ is doing is weird - sensible discussion starting post, everything spelt correctly, is this new meta-trolling or genuine interest in berks? :)

It's from a quote . Shaman will find it soon - but since I have disclosed it is in fact a 'breaks quote' I'm not sure it would be very satisfying.

Aside to that this conversation is about nufunk / ghetto funk.

And still fucking awful.

Dunno if the same can be applied to the music mind, I have never knowingly heard either brand

5 BPM slower - fractal / computer design as the art work instead of retro photo.
