New school breaks almost became a swear word in such a short time, after a great run with labels like Botchit & scarper, TCR & Marine Parade at the helm, alongside those responsible (Rennie Pilgrim, Adam freeland etc). Gervase Cook, one half of High Prime & better known as the anoraks favourite B.L.I.M, could do no wrong during the phase, & this 12" is a great example. Already having released early D&B classics on labels like S.O.U.R, breakbeats are G's bread & butter. The moody & electro tinged 'Funky As F**k' & nasty robotic snarl of 'Fruit Of The Boom' are two cuts from the era I wont part with, on account of the ingredients not dating a wink. Solid analog breaks action, don't overlook.
