Whats Funky House? In the early 1980s, Chicago radio jocks The Hot Mix 5, and club DJs Ron Hardy and Frankie Knuckles played a range of styles of dance music, including older disco records (mostly Philly disco and Salsoul tracks), electro funk tracks by artists such as Afrika Bambaataa, newer Italo disco, B-Boy hip hop music by Man Parrish, Jellybean Benitez, Arthur Baker, and John Robie, and electronic pop music by Kraftwerk and Yellow Magic Orchestra.

Some DJs made and played their own edits of their favorite songs on reel-to-reel tape, and sometimes mixed in electronic effects, drum machines, synthesizers and other rhythmic electronic instrumentation.

The African-American DJ Frankie Knuckles would use basslines and rhythm section parts from vintage disco and R&B songs, mix them with parts from modern synthpop songs and transform them into innovative house music tracks.

DJ Ron Hardy, an African-American producer and DJ who spun at the Music Box club, used the same approaches as Knuckles, collaging parts from vintage and new songs to make new tracks. However, whereas Knuckle's house tracks had an overall positive mood, Hardy's tracks had more of an edge and faster, more energetic tempos, designed to rev up the dancers in the club.
