Hey everybody, it's playlist time again!
Some genres aren't as abundant as others; music can often get released in waves and be governed by taste and trends.
One such genre in the FMA is Deep Funk. Recognisable here by its strong basslines, often soulful vocals and laid-back swing pattern of drumming, it can be harder compared to other genres to find modern funk tracks in the FMA catalogue.
The roots of the genre can be traced back to the mid-60s and can be heard influencing many modern top 40 chart hits, but today I wanted to present you with something quite special, a slightly shorter playlist than usual from Musiio - but I think these tracks are just waiting to be heard.
I'm particularly enamoured with track 5 by Ava Luna which starts with an incredible acapella section. And look out for track 4, Luce Lutu '623am' it definitely sways heavily into the trap and soul genres, but I love the sonic recognition across the blending genres.

Welcome to the Americana edition of AI playlists by Musiio!
Today our 'seed' track is the awesome Bob Wiseman's 'In Her Dream' - now usually I pick the seed track and the AI suggests the rest... however the Wiseman track was actually chosen by an earlier version of our AI as a companion to the Kurt Vile seed track from Playlist 1. So in reality I had even less of a hand in this than usual, but I love the way tracks lead to other tracks and playlists break off into different genres - so I couldn't help but follow where it went!
I am a huge fan of the Americana genre. I used to be a regular down the front of shows at Corridor Bar, The Basement, The Union, and numerous other great bars in Sydney, Australia that are at the core of great Australian made Americana, which has dominated the local scene for the last 5 years. These playlisted artists are from the U.S., Russia, and all over - this genre has global appeal.
Enjoy this new playlist of ten tracks all taken from the FMA.
