Bass Heavy Oddball Tech Funk Songs
Bass Heavy Oddball Tech Funk is a genre that embodies a new kind of dance music, defined by its unusual sounds, funk beats, and quirky lyrics. All of these songs incorporate a delicate balance of goofy, random lyrics and grimy bass. A popular independent electronic music label called Dirtybird is known for establishing and specializing in this brand of house music that embodies the unique characteristics of this alternative genre. The label was created by the dj Claude Von Stroke in 2002 in an effort to create a new genre of “laidback” dance music that “didn’t take itself too seriously.” Since then, many producers have incorporated the style of Dirtybird, thus resulting in the formation of a new alternative genre: bass heavy oddball tech funk.

Back to the Jungle by Justin Martin
This song is featured on Justin Martin’s, a Dirtybird native, recently released album titled “Hello Clouds.” The song doesn’t have as heavy or grimy of a drop as Work by Billy Kenny, but rather more on the ambient, mellow side. However it still incorporates the quirky, oddball aspects of the genre.
