Put Your Two's Up

  • songfacts ®
  • This track features The Wire actor Dominic West rapping about attracting people to the dance floor, steadily getting more drunk as the song continues. Jordan "Rizzle" Stephens told The Sun: "Having Dom in the studio was awesome. Not only did we have a proper laugh making the song, we were able to have some drinks, which was a good opportunity to get to know him and ask him a bucketload of questions."

    West also appears on another Roaring 20s track, "That's Classic."
  • The song was co-produced and co-written by Rizzle Kicks' fellow Brighton resident Fatboy Slim (aka Norman Cook). The DJ previously produced their hit single "Mama Do The Hump."

    "We're always happy to work with Norman, Stephens' Rizzle Kicks partner, Harley "Sylvester" Alexander-Sule told The Sun. "I think at first he took to us because we were Brighton boys, then I think he was just happy to be in the pop world again."

    "It's a while since he put out an album but he has never lost his touch," Sylvester added. "He said, 'Why on earth do you want to work with me?' But growing up in Brighton, he was THE person who put that sound in our heads. His music was always there."
