Ultramagnetic MC’s: Bait (Original 12″ Version)
from Critical Beatdown [Remastered] (2004, Next Plateau/Road Runner)

Here is a quick post from a guest Broke BBoy by the name of TDAWG, outta Northern VA, reppin the SewerLabs, Muzik Fiendz, Uneasy Alliance and N20, A crew I rep myself. You’ll be seeing more from Mr. TDAWG, so peep it… Go Ahead Tee!!


Like a lot of people, I first heard this on the Let’s Go/Next Plateau compilation, “Red Alert Goes Berserk” back in 1987 and to this day it still blows my mind everytime I hear it. This was my introduction to the ‘Nautilus’ bassline and everytime it was sampled after this, I thought, “Damn! They sampled ‘Bait’ (What did I know about breaks back then?). This version, unlike the one on the Red Alert LP, is the full-length. It was previously only available on a mega-rare Japanese 45 but Ultra was gracious enough to include it on the ‘Critical Beatdown’ remastered CD last year.
