"British Funky – formerly Urban House and now increasingly referred to as UK Funky – is a form that requires the DJ's skill for full appreciation. Unlike the builds and drops of dubstep or the jarring disjunctions of Grime, its linear form allows for long blends and subtle EQ manipulations – and it's only through the subtle accumulation of detail in a lengthy set that it actually becomes apparent how distinct the new genre is from earlier House music."
