Boogie (or electro-funk, post-disco) is an electronic/funk-influenced variation of post-disco. Boogie tracks are usually mid-tempo.

Term "boogie" was used in London to describe a form of African-American dance/funk music from 1980s. The name boogie tended to be used as, although essentially used to describe disco records, the word disco had gained bad connotations by the early 1980s. It had a popular following within London's underground scene, often based around nightclubs and club DJs due to a lack of mainstream radio support. Boogie records were mostly imported from the United States and were sometimes regarded as "electro-funk" or "disco-funk". Originally the word boogie could be found in 1970s funk and disco records, but tracks like "Boogie's Gonna Get Ya" (Rafael Cameron, 1981), "Don't Make Me Wait" (Peech Boys, 1981), "Break Dancin' - Electric Boogie" (West Street Mob, 1984), "I'm in Love" (Evelyn "Champagne" King, 1981) or "You're the One for Me" (D. Train, 1981) helped define the musical style of boogie.

Boogie record labels include Prelude, West End, Sam as well as mainstream disco labels like SalSoul, Radar or Vanguard, among with Profile, Tommy Boy, Streetwise, Sugar Hill, Emergency, Solar Records and Total Experience Records.

The term was coined by UK DJs Norman Jay and Dez Parkes. Usually the term is used on specific music on eBay.
