I can't say that this comp is really unique or "better" than anything else out there, but some of the material just keeps me coming back for more, more, more! The tracks on this set are just crazy good, if not virtuoso. 12 Min of Dreams, 5 Min of Tech Funk, and Here We Go for 8 Min are just a few of the ones I really DIG!
