Vinyl LP Record [2LP]
For those who think of rap-metal fusion as something invented by bands like Korn and Limp Bizkit, Urban Dance Squad returned in 1999 to remind you that they've been doing it for ten years now, and from a home base in Holland. Artantica is the fifth and last studio album by Urban Dance Squad. The album was a return to the band's hip-hop roots and received critical acclaim. Artantica marked the return of DJ DNA, who had been absent on the band's two previous recordings. Stylistically the album is very diverse, as are most by UDS, with vocalist Rudeboy often singing and rapping in the same song. The single "Happy Go F***ed Up" became a hit in Europe. Urban Dance Squad disbanded the following year, though they did perform together again in 2006. For the first time since it's original release, Artantica is pressed on vinyl. The first run of this limited edition of 500 numbered copies is pressed on 180 gram transparent vinyl.
