    Sounds like the perfect music to play at a clown party.

      Seeing all the discussion here, I realize "Ram Records" was actually a good name for the label. Releases were often innovative, exploring new things. sometimes hard to swallow, but the ram always charges on, like it or not.

        Still remember first time I heard this, when Goldie dropped it at the end of a wild set/party at Vooruit, lights on already, so fresh, the remaining crowd exploded, the rewind, the build-up of the intro, the exuberant joy of the ravers. Good days.

          Love all the d&b purists crying their eyes out at this track 22 years later. This track is brilliant, it pushed the boundaries of what Drum and Bass really was and that’s why it’s so good. It’s really catchy, but different. No other tune like it, or atleast at the time.

            dopest cover art for one of the worst records ever made in history of drum and bass.

              Quite frankly I fail to see how 'Body Rock' is even defined as Drum n Bass or Jungle. Maybe by some technicality? There's no breaks, if anything it sounds more like a Footwork track. Anyways, as a 19-year-old who could have never heard Drum & Bass in its heyday (the 90s), I'm very happy that I found my favorite genre of music through years of refining my tastes in Electronic music and venturing through the Youtube algorithm to find the classics, rather than finding what's popular and latching onto it, and defending it to the death when people tell me that it doesn't exactly represent the 10 years of musical evolution behind it. Body Rock is to Drum n Bass is exactly what Skrillex is to Dubstep, something that barely even resembles the genre that it's for some reason lumped in with.

                Man, old dnb heads REALLY hated having fun, huh? That's what it seems like, going off these old comments. Some crowd.

                Thank god there's more drum and bass like this today, thank god that popular producers in the scene wanted to create fun, accessible tunes that didn't have to follow the strict guidelines of what makes "proper" dnb, and thank god the heyday of these miserable, sore losers below me is long, long gone. It's tracks like Body Rock (along equally-hated "clownstep" gems by Pendulum, et al) that led to drum and bass' breakthrough for younger generations, allowing 24-year-old me (and many others in my generation) to find this amazing genre, long after these tracks were debuted.

                Here's to more drum and bass producers continuing to innovate and inspire younger folks, challenge audiences, and making a laughingstock out of stuck-up, washed-out elitists in a scene that simply isn't built for their pretension.

                  Can we stop with the whole it's good/it's bad thing.
                  It's absolutely terrible.

                    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)!
