Urban Dance Squad, led by MC/Singer Rudeboy 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. 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.180 gram audiophile vinylGatefold insert / insertSIDE A1. LIVING IN THE FASTLANE 2. NO KID 3. DEEPER SHADE OF SOUL4.

GOD BLAST THE QUEENAt 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.
Though DJ DNA had not yet returned by this point, the band once again made use of turntables on this album. The band received some great assistance by Belgian producers/keyboard players Wizards of Ooze and Osdorp Posse's Seda.There are also many songs on the album that feature singing instead of rapping by vocalist Rudeboy.Three singles from the album received international airplay; "Temporarily Expendable", "Carbon Copy" & "Ego".180 gram audiophile vinylGatefold sleeveIncludes printed innersleeveIncludes insertRemastered audioFeaturing the hitsingles "Temporarily Expendable", "Carbon Copy" & "Ego"First pressing of 500 numbered copies on transparent vinylThe complete album on vinyl for the first time!SIDE A1.
