A little history…
90% of the album "Potdamn, here it is!" was originally recorded and mixed in the summer of 1994. Since Def Real songs had proven to have hit-potence, the Record company + Publishing Compacy decided to "clear" (ask for permission to use the fragments) the samples used on the new Def Real album. A proces which took about ¾ of a year. A time well used for finishing the extra 10% (topping) of "Potdamn,…." October 1995 the album at last came to birth. The game plan was to release the album first and choosing an single after the first reactions.

The first DJ to pick up was the legendary Rob Stenders with his sidekick Fred Siebelink. At that time they had radio shows at Kink FM (the alternative radio station). Soon after the release Def Real visited Rob & Fred at Kink FM. Since Kink FM picked up "Me & the Pizza", the record company decided to make this the first single. Soon after that the Studio Brussels (Belgian national Radio) picked up "Me & the Pizza", where it even became a radio hit. After that things speeded up for Def Real. The album tour took them through the club- and festival scene of the Netherlands and Belgium and got them national radio and TV exposure. Etc. etc. etc……..
