The Brit Funk Association recently released a new album “Full Circle” on Expansion Records.

The Brit-Funk genre started in the late 1970’s and was a catch-all phrase coined by Record Mirror Magazine’s James Hamilton to describe the distinctive mix of jazz-fusion-funk-disco music being made by UK bands such as Level 42, Light of the World, Freeez, Shakatak, Central Line, Hi-Tension, Morrissey / Mullen, Second Image, Direct Drive, Linx and Incognito.
