too much nonsense in here about this being cheesy and the death of D&B. if you dont like it then fair enough but this was huge in every rave for months. I remember being at a festival Ministry Of Sound did at Knebworth while it was on dubplate. I was stood in between the World Dance tent and the V/Movement tent and Body Rock was being in played in both (and got a rewind in both) at the same time. Promos were going for silly money and the 12" sold like mad when it dropped. They didn't add a vocal to it, license it to a major for a remix or do anything to dilute it. The popularity stemmed purely from D&B fans loving it so chinstrokers, Discogs DJs and keyboard ravers pipe down!

I first heard this out when it was still a dubplate in the small DnB room at Atomic Jam. It was the last tune of Andy C's set and the place erupted - cue rewinds galore!
Absolute amazing and a cracking memory to keep with me.
I bought it again recently as I try to gradually buy up old records that I had in the past and I have to say it still works for me now. The whole track is so well constructed, it builds and drops perfectly with all of those accompanying effects and samples and when it lets loose it never fails to put a smile on my face.
Like all of the best art, it provokes extreme emotions and responses from the listeners and as an artist you couldn't ask for more than that (although I'm sure Andy and Shimon made a pretty penny from it too)!

The day drum & bass jumped the shark was the day this dropped. (Actually, it was probably something by Aphrodite before this record. But at least Aphrodite was fun on a dancefloor.)

This tune tore up raves, and to all those who lament its 'cheesiness' I say this - the first DJ I heard play this out was Bailey, and the second was Fierce. Because they knew it was different, and would move a crowd. Yeah we also had wicked serious tunes from people like Digital, Total Science etc in 2001, but the simple fact is this was catchy, got played to death in the UK and went on radio, then into the charts, therefore the usual thing happened ... People turned on it. It's a pity, but then this attitude has always constrained dnb, and as far as I can see continues to do so.

This record is real crap. It's even more crap when you realize this man used to make extremely good music in 1992-3. I bought it as a joke on juno when I just felt like owning a bunch of cheese Clownstep to make a small mix out of in the late 2000s. Btw, it is in 4/4 timing, it just has a really extreme swing beat.

just a heads up...
its hard to mix because its not 4x4 timing, its 12/8 .. there are a handful of D&B cuts like this ... and if you have tunes with the 12/8 timing they are fun to mix.. once you get the drop right.!

This isn't you're average wicked tune kinda drum & bass track and the beats aren't exactly brilliant so if you are looking for a dark, jump up style kinda tune or a heavyweight tune or typical drum & bass gem then avoid this. I rate "Body Rock" probably 3/10... Heard better tunes from the Ram records stable. This is cheese from Andy C.

Never liked "Body Rock" but heard it recently and I think it's actually not that bad considering there are worser d&b tunes so I hope Andy C will forgive me.
