Can anybody identify the original track from where the sample used in Jungle Tech originates...it kicks in at about 20 seconds, runs all the way through (it's under the Coffey sample)...it's that bubbling bleeping funk sound...like a sound a whirring computer from the six billion dollar man would make, it's effing brilliant. Please, please put me out of my misery!

This was the first US import that I ever bought in the UK. It opened my eyes to a whole new style, nothing like it existed at that time...and not much since.

It's jam packed full of samples ranging from Talking Head's Born Under Punches, Johnny Hammond's Los Conquistadores Chocolates, Dennis Coffey's Scorpio, Heatwave's Groove Line, Quantum Jump's Lone Ranger...it's a hodge-podge of cool breaks pulled together like you've never heard them before...thanks to Hunter and Dao's talents.

It's weird and wonderful and I can only describe it as electro-funk...it's really difficult to define, if I had to frame a reference I'd say the P-Funk All Stars all accidentally locked into a space shuttle, pressing all the buttons and flicking all the switches and generally not taking the gravity of their situation very seriously...but then miraculously going into orbit, making a perfect reentry and touching down silently in the pleasant pastures of an English field. Then it's off to the Arch Bishop of Canterbury's house for crumpets: "More tea vicar?"

Anyway it comes from a time when house was still a 'feelin.'...so it's best just to kick that bare in your mind to the back and listen.

PS Check out Gene Hunt's 'Come And Get Some.'...

Incredible electro style thumper that damages the dance floor each and every time..
With Peter Daou in the mix as well (331/3 Queen).. This is one of the dopest on this label.. in my opinion several arent much to rave about but the records that were dope were absolutely brilliant on this label and this is one of them (Funk Flows Freestyle)..
Im pretty sure that some of these were repressed as well.. I urge you to check out this amazing record
