Bath's Stabilizer gives us a funky little number for FB's sixth release. This original mix has a nice little groove to it on the more mellower and funkier end of the breaks spectrum. Very groovy indeed. The Phantom Beats provide one of the other mixes, with their growling basslines that they have become well known for, driving the track to a new level. The Spoon Wizard, taking time out from working on his upcoming "Believe or Suffer" album, provides the second mix.

With a blinding breakbeat mix from Spoon Wizard, an artist signed to Exeter (UK) based Functional Breaks, the horror B-movie samples get annoying pretty quickly on the other tracks, they fit perfectly into Spoon Wizard's eerie late-nite breaks mix, his best production to date and easily the best track on this 12". Spooky sounds punctuated by lovely acid tweaks set the mood before a devious nu skool styled bassline is let loose to cause havoc on the dancefloor - a killer track!
