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

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

Fact - Aphrodite wrote this because he didn't have a copy of Quest by Shimon and Andy C.

Sure it is Jump Up. VERY Jump Up... but I think there is a reason DJ Hype mixed this into his Jungle Massive compilation. This tune was a new sound when it released all the way back in 96! When mixed in the right way, I think this would destroy a dance floor of even the most purist Junglists.

Seems to divide opinion, Bad Ass! used to send the floor mental, I really like Drop top Caddy, sure its not Photek dude, but it was good tune for the dance floor and still enjoy listening to it now. Finn & Aphro' you can't go wrong!

Essential jump up tune that used to smash up the dance back in 96-97, as anyone around at the time will tell ya. Just check out Mickey's Roast 5th birthday bash set. The flip is equally as good and was also rinsed out by the likes of Hype and Nicky Blackmarket back in the day. Stone cold classic!

Complete Weak Sauce. One of the worst Garbage jump up tunes ever to be pressed on vinyl. Nothing but a silly wobbler bass and a single monotone two step drum "beat" throughout the entire track (more like half-step).

The only dance people do to this is the running man and I wouldn't be caught dead playing this in a set. Just my opinion. All who disagree are probably, quote me, "New Bootie" Drum 'n Bass heads whom I encourage to go ahead and BUY it so you can dance the "running man". Pure garbage.

ps Sorry Aphrodite. What happenned?? Your first couple of handful of releases were great...
