Within the rich history of club music, Funky House has always played an important role. Some legendary producers of the style are Modjo, Junior Jack, Armand Van Helden, Daft Punk, etc. This colorful type of music has made countless clubs on all five continents break out a sweat on the dancefloor, and today new emerging producers are still interested in doing groovy tunes.
Funky House is a loose definition for a commercially oriented, Disco-influenced subgenre of House music. Like most variants of House, the genre follows a traditional four to the floor beat, and makes heavy use of synthesizers, samples, and soulful vocals, although unlike in more electronically bent Chicago and Deep House, the presence of acoustic instrumentation is much more common. The defining characteristics of the sound are heavy reliance on filter and phaser effects both on and alongside samples of the late 1970s and early 1980s American or European Disco tracks. Most of them in this vein feature a tempo range of 110-130 beats per minute.
Funky House music is essentially a combination of three production styles. One is what the people still refer to as “the French touch” and it is the style that was greatly influenced by the Space Disco sound. The second is a continuation and update of Euro Disco and is greatly influenced by the productions of Alec R. Costandinos. The third would be the Deep American House style as evident in the similar treatment of samples and repetitive ‘funky’ hooks. Naturally, further variations and mutations followed. This music genre is also known as French House or Disco House music.

Chloé Caillet moves into a fun dimension with her new housey jam “NYWTF.” Inspired by the classic sound of Detroit and Chicago House, the melody here calls for arms spread and raised to the skies.
In collaboration with Mikhail Beltran and released via CircoLoco Records, “NYWTF” outstands when it comes to minimal and deep tech beats. Moreover, the mantra on repeat «New York What The Fuck» is so bloody addictive that invites everyone to dance.
Hailing from Paris, France, Chloé Caillet is a rising female producer and DJ whose eclectic style is impressing the underground circles. There’s also something vintage about her music that I absolutely enjoy. Well, who doesn’t?…
Best of all, the music video transports you to the capital of the world, the Big Apple. These visuals are simple but iconic at the same time, showing you the land of the free through retro aesthetics.
I really hope you like it as much as I do.

Myst Milano Astounds Everyone With Her ‘Bitch House’ Style
Hailing from Toronto, Canada, Myst Milano is on a mission to revive the ‘Bitch House’ style. She will leave you with your mouth wide open once you discover her iconic song and video, “No Shade.”
What I love about the entire production is without question the old-school and sexy vibes that this track emanates. To date, I can’t understand why such a brilliant release seems to be incredibly underrated.
“No Shade” represents a tribute to her experiences in the Ballroom community. Additionally, this gem is inspired by pioneers of the ‘Bitch House’ style like Moi Renee and Rageous.
All of a sudden, this single saw the light thanks to the support of Defected Records, a British independent label that still promotes the housey culture and genre all over the world.
Indisputably, Myst Milano is more than ready to make waves within the underground circles and beyond. Personally, I can’t wait to hear more hot tunes from her catalog.
If you have musical ears, it’ll be easy to recognize she has a ton of potential.
