Default Funk Music - Suggestions?

Want to start getting into some new music an funk is a genre I'm really liking at the moment. Getting into the Ohio Players a little bit and I'm really liking it.

Do you guys have any artist or album suggestions?

If you listen to lots of golden age rap, you should be able to pick bands based on what is being sampled. Funk is probably my second favorite genre after hip-hop and there are lots of good stuff that I enjoy.

Funkadelic-Parliament, Kool & the Gang, James Brown, Curtis Mayfield, Gil Scott-Heron, Roy Ayers, Sly & the Family Stone, Isaac Hayes just to name a few.

I'll add The Commodores, Edwin Starr and Earth, Wind and Fire to that^ list. Probably more I'm not thinking of.

Funkadelic - Maggot Brain is a must.

That's the main reason I've been getting into the genre actually.

I wasn't even aware Kool and the Gang was funk. I just picked up their record last night. That's perfect ATM.

Yeah, haven't heard Edwin Starr but Commodores and EWF are great.

The Isley Brothers are also worth a mention.

And let's not neglect George Clinton's solo material.

George Clinton is a must for me honestly. For as many songs I've heard him being sampled. My lord.

some good stuff mentioned so far.

if you like Parliament/Funkadelic/George Clinton dont forget the first few Bootsy Collins solo albums, youve surely heard this sampled or covered
