Volume 1 of the Janko Nilovic retrospective collection has a distinctly different vibe to Volume 2, there is more of a rock influence to many of these tracks and they seem to be even more succinct and attention grabbing. There are still plenty of similarities between the two compilations though, chiefly being the use of funk and jazz elements as well as the French penchant for wordless female vocals. The percussion deserves a special mention, while not overt it is still good enough to stand out amongst all the great instrumentation going on. For those not familiar with the work of Nilovic I think you will find this record to be a revelation of cool grooves and brilliant composing. Thanks to the original uploader.
