The UK urban dance scene has come a long way in recent years. Gone are the days when garage and grime were the dominant force accompanying the lyrics of UK rappers. Today we can hear the influence of house, electro, hip hop and hip pop in this flourishing new age for the UK urban scene.
At the same time street dancers have stuck with it, developing and revolutionising the many ways of moving and popping to the beat. With this in mind, Ministry of Sound has travelled the length of the United Kingdom and beyond to merge these two unique arts and bring you a fine selection of urban tracks for the dancer in you.
The album 'kick-starts' with the massive new single of the same name from Example, followed by two of the UK's finest artists, Professor Green and Lily Allen with their hit Just Be Good To Green. Of course no urban album would be complete without the lyrical genius of Dizzee Rascal and so he features twice with Dirtee Disco and the Doorly remix of Bonkers.
CD1 is so full of energy you're sure to be energised to the sounds of Rusko's wonky remix of The Prodigy's Take Me To The Hospital, DJ Fresh's new hit Gold Dust, and Wiley, Jodie Connor and J2K's wobbly-bassline party anthem Electric Boogaloo.
CD2 ventures further afield in search of more danceable class-acts featuring the masterpiece One by Swedish House Mafia, the insanely catchy Yolanda B Cool & D Cup chart hit We No Speak Americano, Deadmau5's floor-filler Ghosts N Stuff, and the funky feel-good anthem ANYWAY by Armand Van Helden and A-Trak, before wrapping things up with Bob Sinclar's Rock This Party.
