Airborn, Spider, Kano & Flip formed the breakdance crew The Dynamic Breakers along with an outsider named Duce as a spin-off from the much larger Dynamic Rockers. They have featured in a few movies such as The Exterminator, Delivery Boys & The Last Dragon.

They appeared on a televised talent contest and won the grand prize which was to appear in the Harry Belfonte movie, “Beat Street”, but due to financial disputes between their management and the movie’s producers it never happened.

This is their debut release on Sunnyview Records, produced by an uncredited Cozmo D of Newcleus. It was originally supposed to be a duet with rap group Total Control (Dynamike, Frankie Dee & DJ Johnny Juice) but after a dispute with Breakdance International who arranged the deal, the record was released crediting Dynamic Breakers alone as the artist although Total Control were responsible for most of the content.

This is an abbreviated version of events. The full story can be found here at www.oldschoolhiphop.com.

There are no label variations that I know of and the promo has the same catalogue number as the official release, however, the promo copy does include an extra promo only edited version of the track.
