They may have invented jungle (as other reviewers have suggested), but don't ever tell them that - I read an interview way back in the '90s where they stated that if anyone used the term "jungle" in front of them, they would get a punch, as they considered it a racist term.

Whatever you call their music, they are legends, and I still love their tunes, decades later.

The importance of Shut Up & Dance can never be underestimated. They were pioneers of the whole breakbeat rave sound along with the likes of Rob Playford and Altern-8. This was music to dance to. Simple yet so effective.

Shut up & Dance can, more than anyone, lay claim to having pretty much invented jungle. When Acid House was still the in thing, Shut Up & Dance were adding breakbeats to the formula with dark twisted basslines and atmospherics, making records that sounded so unique.

I've often said that breaks has never been the same since the old rave days, the tunes don't have the same bounce, melody or groove. Modern breaks artist should look at how these tunes were made and take note. We don't want to hear uber produced tunes with god knows how many sequences or layers. We want tunes to dance to. You only need to listen to the eerie "Dance Before The Police Come" or "£10 to get in" or "The Green Man" to hear their genius. That's also without mentioning the infamous "Raving I'm Raving".

I'm not even going to write about their record label either 'cos i'd be here all day. Sometimes i feel that the whole DIY ethic is missing from dance today which is a shame. There's no feeling of unity anymore because money killed it. Shut Up & Dance, we salute you for doing you own thing. Thanks.

They may or may not go down in history for this, but the fact is that SUAD invented Jungle. Yes I did say invented. Listen to '£10 to get in' and you'll see what I mean. There influence in creating a London specifc variation of the Northern noisy techno scene of the early nineties is nothing short of creative genius, and was to evolve into the 'ragga' style of jungle that is so established today.
