Renegade feat Ray Keith – The Terrorist (PA Mix) [1994]

6 minutes of ruffness. Absolutely legendary DnB cut from Ray Keith. Immediately recognisable, everyone knows that drop is comming but that bassline is out of this world. Literally WROTE the book on rollin’ – love it.

Incidentally, the Piano is sampled from Japan’s “The Nightporter” taken from their 1980 LP “Gentlemen Take Polaroids”.

From Discogs
Whoever listens this timeless Breakbeat classic “Terrorist” by Ray Keith & Gavin Cheung (A.K.A. Nookie) for the first time will never imagine what comes right after the opening dramatic pianos taken from Japan’s “The Nightporter”: an oscillating bassline from Kevin Sauderson’s classic “Just Want Another Chance” (1988) as Reese and the Amen Break based Breakbeat storm (sampled from the complete drum solo drop out of “Amen, Brother” by The Winstons, 1969) that would cause a very singular impact on the history of Jungle & Drum n’ Bass. As a natural consequence, “Terrorist” was included on many important compilations such as ‘Drum & Bass Selection 2’, ‘Jungle Fever Vol. 1 – The Jungalistic Revolution’, ‘Jungle Mania 2’, ‘The Ultimate Jungle Collection’, ‘Radio Dreamscape Volume One’, ‘World Dance – The Drum + Bass Experience’, among others.
Although there is no credits on the sleeve or label for Nookie, he was with Ray Keith the composer and producer of this single.
