Up until the 2nd drop this track is immense. Yes its slightly cheesy as others point out, but it should take its place in the history of the genre as being a track everyone knows (who should know) and going off if used correct. Worthy of praise in my humble opinion

You know, at the time this was released I absolutely LOVED this record as Aphrodite was the king of Jump-up at the time however, listening to it now it hasn't aged all that well and I am amazed at how simple it is but then, Aphrodite was pretty much following a formula at this point and it was a great formula for sure. I sold my copy of this recently as well as the remixes as I hadn't played it in nearly 20 years so it was time for someone else to enjoy it and thats what the song is for, enjoyment. Pure, unadulterated enjoyment as not everyone wants to stand around and wax philosophical on the dance floor all the time.

I bet hardly any of these ponces went raving! Probably a load of snobby armchair Junglists who never went raving and saw everyone actually dancing to this TUNE...

This era was the death of jungle for me. Terrible track.

I don't understand why there are so many negative reviews on this. Sure it's not great but not that bad either it is a pretty decent filler in my opinion will sit nicely next to something like super sharp shooter or urban style music...worth getting for a couple of quid

Gonna revive this for the Summer and make dancefloors Great again!!!
Tune If ever there was one bside is better though...

Yes this tune is cheese and reminds me of a lot of the cheesy quaver nights at Desire @ The Island, all the new emerging quavers in their Iceberg thinking they really were BADASS! But I admit I skanked to it a few times if the mood was right and the DJ didn't play it too long but just used it as a bridge. Do you want it? Probably not! Do you need it? Defo not! But if you like to complete your collection and get it out for a laugh one night at a home party with friends who know all your dark secrets anyway then go ahead and buy it. But don't pay over a quid for it!

BAD ASS!!! - Samples used come from the film South Central (1992) - a party classic but prefer the flip
