The single, not the album version of the track We Gonna Rock It (Radio Mix 2001) present a female rap migrating from track Lady Bass – One Fine Day, it is likely that the JetSet pre-released it this track, and then added the rap in the new version for Flying Steps.

Breakdance Battle and Battle Megamix Assembly are not albums at all, there are plagiarism for sale, nothing new was added and the tracks Get Freaky and Super Sonic wsa writted by Music Instructor.

Music instructor – this is Mark MM Dollar, Mark Tabak and Mike Michaels – popular dance project long before the wave electro, invited Flying Steps for the filming of their several clips plus dance support during a live performance. First came Amigo in the clip Rock Your Body,all the team appeared in the music video Super Sonic. Soon the contract finish and the album was released without them – they took another team.
