Throwback: D Malice – Gabryelle Refix [UK Funky]

Whilst the last couple of years in the UK have been dominated by a resurgence in House and Techno, it’s easy to forget about other genres that at certain points had their time in the spotlight – namely UK funky. Back in the mid to late 2000s, pioneered by the likes of Marcus Nasty and Roska, UK Funky brought a fresh new blend of dance music holding influences from Garage and Grime whilst infusing African style percussion and soul. D Malice’s ‘Gabrielle refix’ brings with it all characteristics of this sound offering deep shuffling strings and trademark UK funky percussion grooves. A mainstay in Jackmaster and Oneman sets back in the day, ‘Gabrielle’ epitomises the four to floor party-starting quality that UK funky was so renowned and loved for.

Release: 2009
