From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Boogie (sometimes called as electro-funk or post-disco) is an electronic/funk-influenced variation of post-disco.

Boogie, as one of the post-disco subgenres, lacks the four-on-the-floor beat, which is a "traditional" rhythm of disco music. Aside from the moderate influence of synthpop, boogie heavily draws from funk music. Typical boogie track can be characterised by mid-tempo rhythm, prominent use of slap bass, loud clapping sound, melodic chords and, obviously, synthesizers.

The term was coined by British DJs Norman Jay and Dez Parkes. Usually the term is now used on eBay to refer a specific form of early 80's dance music of African-American origin.
