Peak UK Chart Position: #15 in November 1987 If you recall the Ofra Haza track “Im Nin’ Alu” that was featured yesterday – well, that was one of many samples featured on this Coldcut remix. Said to have “laid the groundwork for hip hop’s entry into the UK mainstream”, and reaching number 15 in November 1987

Peak UK Chart Position: #15 in November 1987

If you recall the Ofra Haza track “Im Nin’ Alu” that was featured yesterday – well, that was one of many samples featured on this Coldcut remix. Said to have “laid the groundwork for hip hop’s entry into the UK mainstream”, and reaching number 15 in November 1987 (the same position that Ofra Haza’s track did five months later).

Not a particularly exciting performance though. In fact, you get the impression that they don’t really want to be there…
