At the end of the 80’s -in the central part of Holland- a one-off jam session by local musicians led to the birth of an influential and groundbreaking group: Urban Dance Squad, led by MC/Singer Rudeboy. Backed by a traditional Rock Band line-up plus DJ DNA, they pioneered the Rock-meets-Rap movement in Holland and abroad.
Not fitting in either one of those categories, they singlehandedly created their own mix of genres: Rocking with the toughest while maintaining street credibility. On the heels of their 1989 debut Mental Floss For The Globe they toured on both sides of the Atlantic and gained praise by fellow musicians Rage Against The Machine and The Red Hot Chili Peppers. “Deeper Shade of Soul” proved a song with international hit-appeal and several tracks off the album turned up in Hollywood movies.
20 years after release, this LP was voted Most Important Dutch Album by Dutch OOR Magazine. Definitely worthy of a remastered version, we present the long overdue audiophile pressing in a gatefold sleeve with a lyric sheet to rap-a-long while headbanging to “Fast Lane”, “No Kid” and “Deeper Shade Of Soul”, to name a few.
