Rebel MC is often recognised as the originator of Jungle music, which found it's roots in dub reggae, you can definitely see that coming through in this song. Interestingly the bass line was based on that of The Maytals 54-46 That's My Number.

Watch the video below to see their appearance at the 1989 Smash Hits Poll Winners Party, feature Philip Schofield (sans Gordon) as compere!
