Continuing the Rhythm King theme with 'Beat Dis', the debut hit for Bomb The Bass, mentioned in an earlier post. If you don't know this one, you may know Bomb The Bass for the 90's hit 'Bug Powder Dust'. 'Beat Dis' is iconic of the time it was released. Sampling was rife, and people were making amazing records like this, sometimes with just a drum machine, a tape machine or Portastudio, turntables, and a whole lot of records to sample. I highly recommend you search for this one on YouTube.
The cover art features the smiley face which was recycled from the 1970's and became an icon for the acid house generation. In this case, the bloodied smiley is a direct reference to Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons' 80s comic book series Watchmen.
