Into the Dragon is the 1988 debut album from U.K. dance act Bomb the Bass.

The album included the number 2 UK chart hit "Beat Dis" and spawned three additional hits: "Dont Make Me Wait" featuring Lorraine, which made number 6, "I Say a Little Prayer featuring Maureen", which peaked at number 10, and two versions of the hip hop inspired track "Megablast", which also charted at number 6, as a double A-side with "Don't Make Me Wait".

Other tracks on the album included "Hey You", "Beat Dat", "On the Cut", "Shake It" and the instrumental "Dynamite Beats"

The album was a mixture of two popular styles of the time: house music and cut-up records. It featured various underground DJs introducing the tracks as if they were on pirate radio, including Mark Moore of S'Express talking over an acid house track whilst introducing "Shake It" and Jazzie B of Soul II Soul who introduced "Say a little prayer". Tim Westwood was the announcer before the Megablast rap version.

The track "Megablast (Hip Hop On Precinct 13)" was used in a computer game for the Amiga and Atari ST called Xenon 2 Megablast.
