Double 99 singles chronology

"RipGroove" is the debut single by English speed garage duo Double 99. A huge underground UK club hit in 1997 when first released on an EP as their alias R.I.P. Productions, the song was officially released as a single twice, first in May 1997 where it reached No. 31 on the UK Singles Chart, then again in October in a new mix featuring vocals by MC Top Cat, peaking seventeen places higher at No. 14.[1] The song appeared on their sole album, 7th High, released in 2001.

The song contains samples of Armand Van Helden's Drum 'n' Bass Mix of CJ Bolland's "Sugar Is Sweeter", DJ Gunshot's "Wheel 'n' Deal", Barbara Tucker's "I Get Lifted" (The Underground Network Mix) and a vocal sample from the Kelly G Bump-N-Go Vocal Mix of Tina Moore's "Never Gonna Let You Go".[2]

Impact and legacy

In a 2013 interview with The Guardian, DJ EZ listed "RipGroove" as one of his favourite tracks: "Still going strong, a mainstay in my sets for 15 years now."[3]

In 2016 for Dummy Mag, UK garage musician Wookie ranked the song at number 2 in his list of the "10 Best Garage Tracks", saying "Undeniably a game changer from my boys Tim and Omar. I still drop this regularly in my sets without hesitation."[4]

In November 2016, UK duo Gorgon City compiled a list of their top UK garage songs for Billboard, with "RipGroove" at #3.[5]

The Guardian listed the song at number 9 in their list of "The best UK garage tracks - ranked!" in 2019.[6]

Mixmag included "RipGroove" in their list of "The 15 Best Speed Garage Records Released in '97 and '98".[7] included the song in their "Honorable mentions" list of "underground UK garage classics that still sound fresh today".[8]
