Burnley in Britain is one of the focal points of the planet’s most terrifying and hilarious forms of dance music: donk.
There’s a bit of debate about donk’s origins, but generally people attribute early-90s Dutch producers like Ultrabeat for pioneering the sound. It’s a rave-based dance music created around no-budget 150 bpm bouncy beats, intrusive fog-horned synth stabs, cartoon-y samples, and unsettlingly saccharine highs.
It’s basically happy hardcore on a crippling steroid comedown. The word “donk” comes from the relentless, maddening “donk” sound that’s overlaid on the beats.
When dancing, a donk commonly makes the dancer bounce on the donk beat.
Or just donkify your favorite song into a banging hard dance anthem:
