There were loads of electro compilations issued during the early '00s, ranging from cheapo cash-ins to all-new variations-on-a-theme collections, but Funk Electric fits neither category. Instead, it's a smartly laid out assortment of remixes and original tracks that demonstrates the interzone between the new retro-futurism and techno of a slightly more trad sort. Highlights include Aux 88's remix of Laurent Garnier's techno classic "Crispy Bacon," and the Smug Brothers 'aptly titled "Rush Electro."
