Free La Funk is the classic here, as it was the one that most dj's played back in the days.
But for me, Universal Horn is the track that really stands out.
One of the deepest, emotional, and most overlooked atmospheric drum&bass tracks. The build-up is just beautiful, with that one vocal line that tells it all: 'music was magic'. It sure was! Always in the recordbay!

Universal horn has probably got to be one of the best classic intelligent jungle/dnb tracks of all time.
Caned by ltj bukem back in the day and rightly so.
One of my personal favs and a must get for any true jungle collector. Highly recommended!

Universal Horn is one of the *deepest* jungle tracks ever released - insane... very emotional & hypnotic. Free La Funk is pure beauty. Both are serious spine-chillers. A must have for any atmospheric jungle fan.
