UK Funky (sometimes known as Funky) is a genre of electronic dance music from the United Kingdom that is heavily influenced by UK Garage, electro house, broken beat, soca music, and afrobeat. Typically, UK Funky blends beats, bass loops and synths with African and latin percussion in the dem bow rhythm and contemporary R&B-style vocals at around 135 beats per minute. Very similar to Funk-Step, however, Funk Step shares a wide range of BPMs.
Emerging in the late-2000s, UK Funky has been described by The Guardian as "probably the most exciting development in UK music since garage became grime".
