    Here's a few that I think fit the bill very nicely...

    STEVIE WONDER: BOOGIE ON REGGAE WOMAN
    Killer bass/synth line, from 1974, for fuck's sake. Classic.

    JESSE JOHNSON/SLY STONE: CRAZAY (FOR YOU)
    Probably a little old for the stated parameters, but still solid funk.

    GRANDMASTER FLASH: WHITE LINES
    More electro, but that bassline is 100% solid funk.

    From Prince’s funkier days.

    Kings Go Forth is a great funk band from Milwaukee, Wisconsin. After several years of 7" singles, they put out their first full-length, The Outsiders Are Back.

    Whut, no Average White Band?



    This from Lyn Collins is a classic,



    or coming from a more psychedelic soul territory, the Norman Whitfield produced Undisputed Truth:

    Isolated James Jameson bass part from 'what's going on'. The man was a genius!

    This track is weird and wonderful--starts out with electronic atmospheric weirdness, kicks is with an absolutely killer bassline at about 1:30, for extra wtf it features some melody on the saw (that's right, saw--at least I'm guessing), and ultimately builds up into a full-fledged horn section funk throwdown (with some free jazz weirdness sprinkled in just because). I love this track.

    Space Odyssey" by Marcus Belgrave

    Yeah, so you can go back to the Taphead post on page 1 and play the Imatran Voima song at the same time as the Bill Withers song, just start it at 1 minute into the Bill Withers song, and a mashup happens for 45s seconds until that percussion breaks it, that is something you can do.

    Here are a couple that are more straight-up mainstream funk than my last entry.

    James Brown and the JBs live in Zaire, 1974. James proves his "hardest working man in show business" rep.



    A party classic:

    Here is the artists I meant to utewb up 4 days ago:

    Jimi Hendrix - Dolly Dagger
    Selda - Yaylalar
    Mandrill have since been added here, but, this song:
    Mandrill - Mandrill

    Rufus with Chaka Khan. Tell Me Something Good.

    MESSAGE FROM THE TRIBE is an amazing collection. Have you heard Marcus Belgrave's album GEMINI? Amazing stuff.

    Rarer Funk, from some mainstream Funk groups


    Earth Wind and Fire - "Evil"




    The Four tops. Yes those classy, wouldn't break a sweat
    guys go funk! The Funkateers go crazy.



    Four Tops - "Got To Get You A Woman" [HD]





    The opening bassline on that Four Tops tune above
    could fit any 70s cop show/ exploitation movie.
    Or Anything Tarantino ever made
