Keep It Unreal is Mr. Scruff's first major release. It includes the hit single "Get a Move On", which samples Moondog's "Bird's Lament (In Memory of Charlie Parker)" and the vocals are from T-Bone Walker's "Hypin' Woman Blues." The album ends with "Fish", a track made up of samples about marine life, which is a motif of Mr. Scruff. Samples used in the track include the likes of David Attenborough and David Bellamy. The original sleeve had a black background. It was re-released in 2009 as a 10th anniversary two disc set.
