garage rap # 18




An  important group that nobody talks about these days or listens to.

"They Don't Know" for me is So Solid Crew's one undeniable killer tune.






At least, track with rapping on it. They also made this influential instrumental which played a big role in the shift from garage-based grooves to the electro / jump-up / dancehall hybrids that underpinned grime.




Hang on a minute - seems there was a vocal version of "Dilemma"!

Spelled "Dilema" on the label - deliberately or accidentally, I wonder?



"21 Seconds" is coming up later in a post dedicated to Important But Wack Tunes.

But this is one of the better tunes on the album They Don't Know.
