Return of the Funk is well Funkalishious baby! Merlin samples an insanely funky lick, which makes the basis for the intro. Cutting the tracking in here is guaranteed to get any crowd funking out! We're treated to a 2nd taste of this funktastic lick at the end of the track also. The main section of the track is pretty funky also with some minimal stripped back choppage and sexy vocal samples, but for me it's about that funky lick!

Encounters is something quite different, much darker tones, aimed at the real break heads. lots of Intelligent amens, and hypnocitc vocal work. What stands out the most is the tonal bleeps and eerie haunting samples. Nice europhic pad work throughout more chilled breakdown sections. A really great oldskool dark jungle tune that would hold up with todays Sci-wax break junkies.

Two very different tracks both offering something original and refreshing. Good bang for your buck!
