Why is this so cheap on Discogs??? Not that I'm complaining... this is serious funk, and a collector's find.

I'm getting me a second copy.

This record is funk in the truest sense. It is fierce, robust, syncopated, wiggin' proper electronic funk. For me, this, along with the Turning point EP, Interstellar Fugitives and much of the Direct Beat catalogue, are the high point of Submerge's catalogue. The hi-tech funk style keeps alive the electro-funk spirit of Zapp, Funkadelic, Gap Band, and Newcleus, bands crucial to the development of electronic dance music, and to me is far more interesting than the more well known stereotypical string-led detroit sound.
