“This started life as a remix for Gorillaz with Del the Funky Homosapien on vocals. Jamie Hewlett of the Gorillaz was doing the concept art work for my album (which Iâ€™ll dig out at some point) and his company was across the hall from my managementâ€™s office in west London at the time. I sped the vocal up from 100 bpm to 130 bpm and that pretty much killed the chances of it being released as a Gorillaz remix I later found out. Tho interestingly enough they came with a 130 bpm breaks based rap vocal tune soon after on the next album. It was way better than my effort so hats off to them – and it was a chart hit. The Stanton Warriors did a sick bootleg mix of it.
I was having fun adding dancehall beats into every thing I did at the time and may be able to lay claim to the first 130 bpm dancehall tune in my remix of Hybrids â€˜Skyscraperâ€™ (see write up elsewhere here). It may have been coincidence but Aquasky did a sick tune in a similar vein soon after with Daddy Freddy called â€˜Dem No Know Weâ€™ which I loved and caned. They made many of the ragga-breaks tunes I was playing at the timeâ€¦ talented bastards.”
