    Incoming on a ragga tip, blood!

    This one's for Florian ;)

    Skream - Anticipate (Netsky Remix) + Ed Solo & Deekline - Ragga Tip (Walk And Skank) = this one

    In 1992 breakbeat hardcore producers SL2 released the single “On a Ragga Tip” on the legendary XL Recordings. The tune quickly became an anthem and ended up peaking at number two on the UK Singles Chart. The infamous vocals were sampled from a reggae song by Jah Screechie, who in turn had based it on Slim Smith’s “Never Let Go”. Eighteen years later Ed Solo & Deekline remade this breakbeat hardcore classic as a jungle-tune and released it under the name “Ragga Tip (Walk and Skank)”. In November of 2011, dubstep-producer Skream released the tune “Anticipate” featuring vocals by Sam Frank. Netsky gave it the drum&bass treatment, and this remix is still climbing the Beatport top-ten chart. Last month, norwegian artist ThismeansWAR! took these two tunes and mashed them up - resulting in a sweet drum&bass roller with a heavy dose of nostalgia that brings back memories for anyone who’s familiar with the history of bass music.
