        I remember DJ Felix Sama dropping this back in the day at Club Decos (1235 Washington Ave) on South Beach (1988) and remember hearing that breakbeat come on and it would destroy the dance floor. What a monster track

          Possibly the most influential dance record of all time

            And i was one of those "uk youth".

            This record, over all others, Became without doubt the definitive blueprint for uk hardcore and ultimately Jungle & Drum & Bass.

            If you were ever honored with the chance to hear Mr Frankie bones thrash this monster out back in the day, believe me when i say as soon as you heard that "lets do it" vocal, you knew the bass was gonna savagely "kick" at any minute.

            And what made it all the more shocking was simply the fact that no-one had ever heard breakbeats so f***ing hardcore in a "rave" context before this was played out.

            This track was more commonly know to the uk rave fraternity in its bootleg guise courtesy of Carl Cox's seminal re-working
            (which from what i gather was simply a 2 deck mix with possibly a numark sampler mixer hitting out the "lets do it" sample)

            And its records like this that made jocks like bones untouchable.

            The most crucial 3 minutes of music to spawn a generation (or 2)
            But alas, also one of the most elusive.

            It took me 14 years to find my copy.
            But without it, my collection would not be complete :)

              This is one of the most obscure records and unknown titles which played a very big part of Drum & Bass history. It is in this (3:00) version:

              3. Roll It Up (Remix) (Bass Kickin Beats) (3:00)
              Engineer - Carlos Santos
              Remix - Charlie Solana , Felix Sama

              For the first 6 months of my arrival to the U.K. back in the later months of 1989, this was my most treasured track, the one people would remember me for. The vocal "Let The Bass Kick" followed by The Winstons "Amen Brother" breakbeat with a sub 808 that was deadly. Felix Sama's edit work was effective on this chopping Big Daddy Kane's Vocal "Let It Roll" (made popular by Doug Lazy) into little bits before crashing into that 808/breakbeat again. Carl Cox would get his copy from Lenny Dee in Feb. 1990 and went and did a white label remix which would result in his ink with Perfecto Records for "I Want U (Forever). After that it became the template for the young U.K. youth who began to experiment in the studio. The end result being Jungle and Drum & Bass. This record was the prototype.
