    Default Suggestions? Looking for Uptempo Funk and R&B

    I've heard some pretty sweet songs lately in this genre and I want to get some more artists but I can hardly find any information online about them.

    The stuff I'm basically referring to is like the house music VH had on in 07/08; real fast R&B and funk.

    There's a group I'm particularly fond of: Charles Simmons & The Royal Imperials but they only have one song it seems! But it's fantastic!

    So does anyone know any good groups would fall into this category (I already have James Brown and Curtis Mayfield covered)?

    Are you looking strictly for newer stuff, or some of the classics as well? If you want some good stuff, there are a few good examples in this thread

    You put in a song/artist that you like and it will give you other songs that are similar to it by different artists.

    If you want some great old school funk, then you must check out The Meters. Also check out the new generation funk of Galactic.

    Some groups that come to mind are JAMES BROWN 70'S stuff, Earth Wind and Fire, Heatwave "Best Of". Michael Jacksons "Off The Wall", KC and the Sunshine band, Bee Gee's, Saturday Night Fever CD... Any 70's Disco compilation

    I'll try to think of some more later.

    Excellent. I love George Porter, Jr.'s playing. And any time spent listening to Galactic is time well spent.
