Urban Dance Squad was a / band which formed in Utrecht, Netherlands in 1986. The band consisted of Rudeboy Remmington (vocals), Tres Manos (guitar), Silly Sil (bass), Magic Stick (drums) and DJ DNA (turntables). The band issued five albums: “Mental Floss for the Globe” (1989), “Life ‘n Perspectives of a Genuine Crossover” (1991), “Persona Non Grata” (1994), “Planet Ultra” (1996) and “Artantica” (1999) before disbanding in 2000. The band returned for a reunion tour in 2006.

The band’s rap-rock hybrid style was influential on several groups, such as Rage Against the Machine and a late 1980’s tour with the Beastie Boys was what convinced the latter group to return performing their own instruments. UDS’ single “Deeper Shade of Soul” was a hit in the United States, peaking at #21 on the Billboard Hot 100.
