Funky house is a loose definition for a commercially-oriented, disco influenced subgenre of house music.[1] Like most variants of house, the genre follows a traditional four to the floor house beat, and makes heavy use of synthesizers, samples and soulful vocals, although unlike in more electronically bent Chicago and deep house, presence of analog instrumentation is much more common. Notable producers that have worked in this genre include Fedde le Grand, the Freemasons, Soul Central, Armand van Helden, StoneBridge and Seamus Haji.

The genre is commercially popular, with record labels such as Ministry of Sound, Hed Kandi, and Fierce Angel all releasing compilation albums dedicated to the genre.[2][3]
