A musical genre based on shonk, characterized by a discordant and/or disjointed sound with instrumental and musical progressions. It is most commonly found in DJ'ing and dance music production.
In a historical context, the sound did not originate from a single individual but rather a collective of visionaries, who used the internet to collaborate. As such, pioneering shonkalists and their seminal creations can be found at various websites - in particular, abletonlivedj.com.
Progressive Shonk is a evolution and refinement of Shonk with smoother and more measured beginnings providing a well-balanced transition to the disjointed and jarring feel of classic Shonk
"His progressive shonk sounds had the crowd hopping that night."
