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.

If you are going thru the comments section, you probably already figured out that this is THE love / hate track of drum and bass.

I think it is funny or even absurd that this was the "hot shit" track of 2001 - in the era of Bad Company, Kemal & Rob Data, Universal Project, a very strong Hardware lineup and alike...even after almost 15 years, this just does not make any sense, but I was not there, so I would not know...

Totally ridiculous but we all bought it and went mad to it at raves. Not sure its aged that well and I certainly don't play it these days. I think it got about a million rewinds the first night i heard it. Still not sure whether I love it or hate it.
