Funky Fresh is one of the best tunes ever spun. It's takes a few listenings to, but once it hits you, it will stick in your head for life!

The Funky Fresh track is very much in the same vien as Fatboy Slim, a simple breakbeat loop with a looped vocal of 'Funky Fresh'. The Dub obviously very similar apart from the omission of the vocal loop.
But for me the stand out track is B1. 'Check The Label', where you are taken back surprisingly to the '90s UK rave scene!
A cut-up vocal loop of 'check-the-label-as-it-goes-round', a chest pounding 808 bass drum, a lovely deep sub-bass loop and a full on 'hands-in-the-air' piano break!
All in all very reminiscent of say, The Production House label circa 1992, which leaves you thinking 'is this really a US release?'
