the video says 1998, which is not correct, it should be 1988. The track was released in 1987 but became a hit 88

I remember being 5 yrs old and hearing this. The sounds and samples over the beat was so intriguing lol. I didn’t know what I was listening to.

My Wife always says all of the old Hip Hop I love sounds the same, but I dont think she gets the nuances. This rhythm is consistent with rap of this time, but that's because it still holds up to this day! Rakim, Tribe Called Quest, Ghetto Boys, Slick Rick, Mobb Deep, Public Enemy, all game changers. Probably get flamed for this, but I would say better than Biggie or Tupac..

This has been my favorite song since I 1st heard it in 88’. I didn’t learn about Alan Watts until 2016. Can still listen to this jam and Watts daily.

... i would have thought.... - this remix is possibly part of what potentially hit the editors floor (.. one of the ye oldest crimes in histoire - apart from Harry Squatter.....).. is shaving down some awseomage music.. - to fit some other potential co0ntext.. anyways.... an pretty decent version.. dig it..

What makes this remix so good is it's not perfect. In places the turntablism was live and mistakes are made. It's like a tribute to the age. Nowadays sampling is easy and no longer an art in itself.

Anyone else spot the " back in the club, why, you kids used to laugh at that song" sample at 4.27 on this track, is a scene from the classic Jimmy Cagney film, The Public Enemy.

I remember thinking this was not as good as the original - cleverness and a heavier beat not necessarily making it better. But it sounds OK to me now. Some of those Ninja Tune guys thought that they were cool. They were very silly arrogant white boys who thought they knew everything about the groove. Spare me please. Though Coldcut Solid Steel ended up really good eventually on Kiss FM once they had learned a bit about music rather than reefers and trainers.

I can't tell you all how many time I heard this mix in the New York City club scene in 1988. I'm a Nell's alumni and they use to kill this track every single weekend for probably the entire year. Let's put it this way, at the end of 1988 I knew all the lyrics just from hearing it in the clubs and never owned the mix at the time. That should give you an idea of how often this the DJs spinned this track in the clubs in Manhattan back in the day. Now I hear it played over the sound system at Equinox. Mind blown but in my heart with those memories forever. LOVE!
