So Solid Crew's '21 Seconds' is an unimpeachable classic of British music.
A real statement from the underground, it brought together a huge crew of South London producers, MCs, and vocalists, a show of force that conquered the charts.
With its impact still being felt, '21 Seconds' has been the subject of this fantastic new analysis by spoken word artist Harry Baker.
Breaking the track down mathematically, he marvels at the intricacy of its structure, while remaining respectful to the UK garage template.
Adding in a guest verse of his own, it's an insightful and pretty-damn-funny look at a truly seminal moment in UK culture.
