The only way to indentify this from the other version of The Ragga Twins – Ragga Trip / Hooligan 69 is by looking at the runout info.
This version contains the LYN - 26985 / LYN - 26986 etchings on the A / AA sides respectively.
AA1: Bassline sampled from Area 10 - Love Take Me Over.
AA1: Vocal sampled from Prince - Let's Go Crazy.
AA1: Bleeps sampled from Yellow Magic Orchestra - Computer Game (Theme From The Circus).
I concur with pigman in that I'm surprised at the lack of comment but it seemed to be always a more 'underground' tune. This was one of my first favourite tunes of this era, along with LFO, that I will NEVER tire of...
Sometimes you find a tune and then your jaw drops as you see that no one has bothered reviewing it.
Hooligan 69 for me pretty much symbolises the start of Hardcore,a noticable change in the style and
attitudes of the clubbers at the time,from the loved up ,i'm your best mate friendly days to a much more sinister ,
coked up darker side.
The bass line is still one of the most amazing i think i have ever heard,it mashes up every dance floor ,causing chaos and destruction !
Prince is heavily sampled and why not,he had n't made a decent tune for a while and then the vocals,probably the most
known bit of MCing since Smiley Culture hit the charts !
A truely outstanding and groundbreaking fusion of Bass and Beats.
Big up Shut Up And Dance and also The Blapps Posse,the originators of a long lasting scene.
