I read an article not so long ago about someone who did a track known as the 'DNA of Hip-Hop',
and it was this guy.
If this is elevator music then.

I first came across these 'mixes' on some strange DJ Mix Site that looks legit.
And now that I've managed to hear them...I'm glad I never had to pay.
As they are utterly pointless.
WHY bother to dance-up this track of ALL the ones in his catalogue ?

That's very interesting...On the UK 12'' I had and several Proper DJ's too.
The acapella version was track 1, then the 12'' Mix.
I only remember 'coz it sorta stood out as people ran to the dance-floor.
Like a Shalamar for the '90's I used to say.

Has anyone seen a copy of the 12'' of this with a different colour combo ?
Where the black stripes down either side are, on the front...on at least one copy they were pink.
There's a guy in Reading, UK has a copy.
I've never seen another one since.

OK, the Dutch 12'' is about 30 or so seconds longer.
Let's not get too excited ?
If there was long [guitar-less ?] instrumental or a longer dub it might have done a bit better ??
