The FUNKY ELEMENTS download includes both the original 'The Funky Element' and 'Mo' Funky Elements' sample libraries, which we first released as Sample CDs way back in 1991.
This classic Funk/HipHop sample collection was one of the world's very first sample libraries ever produced!
It set a world standard for genuine-article funk sounds, and is still regarded by many as the perfect tool for throwing down a retro funky jam.

Additional Info & Quotes
"Mo Funky Elements is more like a funk workstation. A well-targeted, well-played, well programmed collection of funk elements. A substantial collection of apparently undiscovered funky grooves... classy funky beats, authentic & convincing, powerful and tight... The producer M.J. Dunne certainly knows how to cook the beats... Sample this lot and all you'll have to do is add vocals. It's rough, but it's definitely ready. Sound quality tends towards the antique, giving a pretty consistent warm character...
