Featuring Final Fantasy IX and funk.
Greetings fellow game music lovers,
since funk was so much fun last week, another entry regarding the genre this week. For the sample, we use something from Final Fantasy IX (2000) this time: Theme of Tantalus.
Since this has a pretty hoodish sound, it's no surprise that one can find something comparable in the funk genre.
The first sample comes from one of the better known funk artists of the 80s with
Bootsy Collins - "Bootsy? (What's The Name Of This Town)" (1978):
A less good but maybe comparable sample may be found in Funkadelic's "Jimmy's Got A Little Bit Of Bitch In Him" form 1975:
It may be possible that the sequence can be traced back to blues music. I shall update here if I get proof.
Next week we'll make a slight genre shift when we make a deep dive into the baroque domain that seems to have a significant place in Uematsus heart.
