Aussie DJs Phil K and Ben & Lex offer two funky breaks mixes that sound more like mid-'90s West Coast than post-millennium Down Under. Phil K's set indulges in plenty of trancey overtones throughout, with most tracks sounding like they were plucked from some early AM rave set from around that time. Ben & Lex offer a more minimal and interesting ensemble that shifts into more relaxed grooves about halfway through. San Francisco's An-ten-nae delivers the strongest cuts on each of these two mixes, adding some much-needed electro beatwork to these otherwise dated offerings.
