Episode 4: Funksday

Funk is where grooviness was birthed, where swag originated, and where originality thrives because it's a quality that’s lauded in the genre, if not required.

Its flexibility also allows it to fit every other genre like a glove: it accelerates the experience of any and every song through those nasty bass lines and syncopated beats. It lends absolute freedom to creativity and you can tell, from the wide ranges of output, just how much flexibility it offers artists.

So put on your platform shoes, butt cut out pants, giggy hats, or whatever else makes you feel funky i.e. your favorite self and get ready to vibe.
