Beat Dis is to this day one of my absolute Top 10 party tracksI don't knowthe album but got the chance to get one or two of the blue 180 gram re-issue (from Music On Viny)l of the album. It's itworth is? Thanks!!

One of the best album covers of all time - it’s one of three I have framed.

I have a white label single sided pressing of this, has anyone got one of these? I can't remember where I aquired it, I think maybe part of a collection. It's just got the A Side of the album and blank on the B side. Maybe a TP?

DJ Time Simenons cut & paste sampled house record 'Beat Dis' was made with 150 pounds in the summer of 1987.
The record was championed on London Pirate Radio by Mark Moore (S Express) and Nellee Hooper (Soul II Soul) throughout the next twelve months.
Upon official release by Rhythm King Records - the track absoloutely BLEW UP.
Truly reflective of the first tidal wave of commercial house in the UK and overseas, Bomb the Bass had further hits with Dont Make Me Wait, Megablast and Say A Little Prayer.
Beat Dis brings a smile to the face and a tear to the eye of anybody fortunate enough to be involved in dance music in the late 80's!
An absoloutely wicked toon. Ten out of Ten. If this doesnt move ya - check your pulse !!
