Bones was hugely influential as a DJ giving the breakbeat sound a huge bump in the UK when he used to tour the country, but I think that if you want to know where that sound started you may need to look at Atlanta.

The intro to My house... and the "Let the bass kick sample" was taken from / inspired by the 3 minute B-side "Roll it up" from Success-N-Effect, a trio from Atlanta that released Freeze the year before.
I am not making this up, Bones himself acknowledged as much.

If you listen to the bass of Roll it Up you can see the blueprint of modern Jungle/Drum'n bass right there, and back in 89 there was nothing like it out there as far as I know.

A great tune & lets not forget the wonderful sample of the legendary Ital Rocker's Anthem - one of the best tunes of 1990 for sure!

Absolute classic, this was later given an updated version by Carl Cox Let The Bass Kick.

Great early House / Techno tune "My House Is Your House" is the main track o this 12" its an absolute monster.
Breakbeat percussion & scratching intro, dropping into deep bassline and dark synth line, then comes the main synth with its infectious riff topped off with the vocal. track builds and drops with different elements coming in and out all the way through. Great track and still love it today, well worth a listen - but play it loud !!!

TBH I'm not entirely sure it's fair to say he's "emulating" the UK sound as he is widely recognized as being the DJ who single handedly brought the amen to the UK. That being said you UK lads accelerated at it immediately while the Brooklyn rave scene couldn't match up but still it's not an emulation they were experimenting with this stuff at around the same time.
One of the first truly "Hardcore" tunes either way
