Double Trouble + The Rebel MC ‎– Just Keep Rockin’ (US Promo 12″)

Mainstream (but forgotten) Hip-House from 1989 and their follow-up to “Street Tuff.” (they were called Double The Trouble in the States because there was already a Blues band called Double Trouble)

Sampling the classic Ska track, “I’ll Take You There ” by The Staple Singers, Double Trouble were the trio of Leigh Guest, Karl Brown and the late Michael Menson. The raps provided by Michael West (Rebel M.C.) who went on to a pioneering Jungle Artist.

There is not much different between the more familiar (radio version) “Sk’ouse” mixes, which has that Ska flavour and made it a huge hit at the time. The track is very different on the other mixes, more harder, electro sounding and with plenty of well known soundbites. A forgotten, old skool gem.
