Wonky (also known as purple sound, aquacrunk, or lazer hip hop) is a subgenre of electronic music known primarily for its off-kilter or “unstable” beats, as well as its eclectic blend of genres including hip hop, electro-funk, chiptune, jazz fusion, glitch, and crunk.

    I'm listening to some wonky nowadays, and I do hear a lot of synths, but I have no idea what 'unstable, mid-range synths' are. I mean, most wonky is made with software synths I presume, so I guess the terms 'unstable' and 'mid-range' refer to the sound itself and not to the quality of the equipment. But then I come to the point where I fail to see why the synths are either unstable or mid-range. They sound distorted and there's a lot of mid-range, yes, but the same goes for any electronic genre ever. So, I really don't get what 'unstable' and 'mid-range' refer to when we're talking specifically about wonky. Please explain. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 145.116.0.97 (talk) 15:27, 21 March 2009 (UTC) 1. There's nothing to explain: these terms are just jargon, they're slushtalk, poopthinking and gobbledegarble. They are meaningless terms used to describe meaningless music. This is not a criticism of either. 2. Nuttyskin (talk) 11:48, 3 August 2009 (UTC) 1. 1.1. OMFG Nuttyskin is...

    although this genre marginally deserves an article - and might grow into a good one (kode9 is playing a lot of this stuff latey) - i have a bit of a problem with the japantimes ref. i know this is pure WP:OR but anyone familiar with flying lotus' stuff would, i suppose, describe it as instrumental, glitchy hiphop in the vein of Prefuse 73 or maybe some Four Tet - it has very little relation to the music being played in south london and sheffield and places being labeled as 'wonky'. a google or even a look at the pitchfork refs in the article kinda back this up. --Kaini (talk) 22:48, 7 November 2008 (UTC)

    Question: should Wonky (music) and Wonky Pop be merged? If so, how? Millstream3 (talk) 17:45, 9 February 2009 (UTC) 1. nope, they're very different things. this music is mainly instrumental, and electronic - it draws elements from dubstep and hip hop. wonky pop is a very different thing. --Kaini (talk) 23:10, 9 February 2009 (UTC) 1.1. OK, thanks for your comments. I'll just people another 2 days to comment... If nothing else, I'll simply cross link using one of those 'Did you mean...' templates and leave it at that. Millstream3 (talk) 09:33, 10 February 2009 (UTC) 1. 1.1. Closing discussion as no further comments. Millstream3 (talk) 20:16, 11 February 2009 (UTC)

    can anyone add a list of artists that do wonky? I think that would help this articleMatsuiny2004 (talk) 03:51, 30 December 2011 (UTC) I'll add one to the article. It will include several of the different scenes, including the more modern Wonkystep style scene. 76.110.90.229 (talk) 04:26, 23 May 2013 (UTC)

    In February 2009, it was proposed that this page should be merged with Wonky (music). There was no support for the merger. Please see the discussion. Millstream3 (talk) 20:22, 11 February 2009 (UTC)

    The BBC has reported that the term was both coined and is owned by the manager of Mika How can anyone "own" the name of a music genre (or any other genre for that matter)? What would be the point? Where would you register such a name, and would artists/music journalists have to pay you royalties to use it? How would you defend any such claim of ownership?Nuttyskin (talk) 11:45, 3 August 2009 (UTC) By this person you mean - Iain Watt (Machine Management - http://www.discogs.com/search?type=all&q=Iain+Watt http://company-director-check.co.uk/director/908567695 .Wonky Pop Limited (company) has now been dissolved it seems.The Managing Director of Wonky Pop Limited was Alex Hardee http://company-director-check.co.uk/director/913006162 , also of Coda booking agency http://www.codaagency.com/coda/default.aspx .Iain Watt is (was?) also the manager of Mika, Alphabeat & Goldfrapp. " The Wonky Pop Tour is the collective name for three artists: Alphabeat, Frankmusik and Leon Jean Marie, who in...

    This is a pop trivia nugget, not anything worth noting. And it's someone giving an opinion. I thought that Wikipedia was supposed to be unbiased. The whole article is a farce. It's basically trivializing each one of these artists because some of them are quite different than the mainstream. Shakesomeaction (talk) 07:01, 4 August 2009 (UTC) 1. In your opinion. Please see the previous deletion proposal. Millstream3 (talk) 15:10, 8 August 2009 (UTC) Seriously, how many made up sub-genres can exist? Like the ridiculous hipster-hop? At this point, I don't even think they constitute as real genres, just stupid and unnecessary labels. Just because a pop artist makes pop music that just sounds slightly different from the norm doesn't mean it deserves its own genre! 24.189.90.68 (talk) 06:23, 7 April 2010 (UTC) Made up by music top end industry insider's who have link's to Major label's.The article doesn't actually mention it being a genre by the way, just a loose grouping of musical act's -...

    Is there a reason that both words are capitalised in the title of this article? "Wonkey pop" would be normal under WP:LOWERCASE.--SabreBD (talk) 19:48, 18 July 2010 (UTC) 1. It looks out of style with the rest of Wikipedia and I don't think there is a reason, but when the article was first made it was full of spelling mistakes, so whoever made it would be the one responsible. FireWolf Flux (talk) 19:51, 18 July 2010 (UTC) 1. 1.1. I will wait a few days and see if any reason is given. Otherwise I think it needs to be moved to Wonky pop.--SabreBD (talk) 00:01, 19 July 2010 (UTC) 1. 1.1. 1.1.1. I can't move it because there is already a redirect there, hense the next section.

    As always happens, the list of acts has grown like wildfire. Most of these acts have no references or mention of the genre on their article pages. I am going to pare this list down to those with reliable sources, so if editors feel unsourced bands should remain please supply a reliable source.--SabreBD (talk) 07:31, 1 June 2011 (UTC) 1. The list of articles needs sourcing for every artist describing them explicitly as "wonky pop"; that specific term must be used unambiguously to describe each artist. I'm going to go through the list and delete anything not appropriately sourced. Blackmetalbaz (talk) 10:46, 24 August 2012 (UTC) If they are sourced, than it is redundant to call them unsourced.

    Genres are not proper nouns per consensus across, um, every other music article on the project. Blackmetalbaz (talk) 10:47, 24 August 2012 (UTC) 1. I agree.--SabreBD (talk) 11:18, 24 August 2012 (UTC)

    Surely this is just some very vague movement that happened in 2009 and not moved since?? Not sure why a page in needed? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 86.40.176.164 (talk) 17:33, 29 January 2013 (UTC)

    Looking at what wonky pop is, this now applies to Tegan and Sara as their last album "Hearthrob" and current album "Love You to Death" have wonky pop elements. But I think it might be difficult to source that. Thoughts? Mr. C.C.Hey yo!I didn't do it!06:10, 5 June 2016 (UTC) 1. 1.1. Sure they Canadian, but they do fit into the synthpop as that is what they becme with the two aformentioned albums and even some of their previous work. Mr. C.C.Hey yo!I didn't do it!06:26, 5 June 2016 (UTC) 1. 1.1. 1.1.1. For both, use of the term on their wikipedia page is not enough, as Wikipedia cannot be a source for itself. They both need independent reliable sources.--SabreBD (talk) 14:24, 5 June 2016 (UTC) 1.1.1.1. Read what I said again. Tell me where I said anything about Wikipedia? You essentially added nothing to the discuss. If I knew you were going to say that, I would have not asked for another opinion. Mr. C.C.Hey yo!I didn't do it!16:05, 9 June 2016 (UTC)

    Can somebody write up an article about the 'Cosmic Scouse' and 'Scallydelica' music scenes? Madchester has got a large article linked to Psychedelic music and Alternative rock on Wikipedia...but you only get Cosmic Scouse mentioned in random articles such as The Bandwagon Club, even though 20 years ago it cropped up quite a bit in the music press. On the other hand random sub-genres like 'Hipster hop' and 'Wonky pop', which may have only been dreamt up/noted by a couple of random journalists (or, in the case of the latter, been a bit of a failure if the idea was to create a lasting scene that was much more than a couple of hit albums by MIKA) are deemed worthy of inclusion. P.S. though I do remember certain journalists/blogs trying to make 'Wonky pop' a thing

    The Wonky Donkey is a children's book, and song written by New Zealander Craig Smith and illustrated by Katz Cowley.
