There has been a plethora of funk compilations released over the last 20 years but "Movements Vol.1" manages to find some unique treats to thrill even the most jaded crate digger. Some of the tracks invoke James Brown while others have a bit of a Miami funk vibe going on. "Muy Sabrosa", "Soul Popcorn" and "Todos" display South American influences but it is "Funky In The Hole" that stands out from the pack, a truly amazing funk bomb! It's no surprise that this album has spawned 2 sequels because the track selection and variety of sounds on offer will leave you begging for more.
