House party, workout music, Saturday early evening lounge playlist? Some things just need a good funk groove for a soundtrack. Luckily French DJ/Composer Francois K shared a damned fine list of his top 137 funky tracks on Facebook and The Vinyl Factory compiled this playlist on Youtube for our listening pleasure. An abbreviated version of the list is also available on Spotify thanks to Ben Dunlop.

The massive list kicks off with Soul Makossa, one of finest ass shakers to get you off your feet, and includes classics from James Brown, George Clinton, Lonnie Liston Smith, Marvin Gaye, D Train, Grace Jones, Kraftwerk (?), Curtis Mayfield, Roy Ayers, Price. Damn. Too many to name. Play it over and over to bring forth past memories, unearth sonic samples that are sneakily embedded in the current musical landscape.
