It has been two years since Funkstuff Recordings was founded, which makes us bring out the second Essentials compilation. This was another busy year but this time it felt rather short since the labels perception of time seems to accelerate with age. The release list is growing, the selection is improving and the liquidity ;) of the label is kept at the optimum level. The summary of our contributions for the great cause of good music is presented here in FSR027. We chose some highlights from our catalog, including tunes by ELKA, J:Logic, Fokus, Funkware and mSdoS, just to name a few. According to a recent thread funky drum'n'bass was considered almost dead but we don't think so. So, who puts the jazz and funk in dnb we claim we do!
