A. Front

“Rockin’ Over the Beat” is a song by Belgian dance act Technotronic. It first appeared on their debut album Pump Up the Jam in 1989 and was released as a single the following year. It is accredited to “Technotronic featuring Ya Kid K”, who co-wrote the track with Jo Bogaert (aka Thomas De Quincey).

The song is an upbeat house tune espousing the pleasures of dancing. It is representative of the positive and melodic feel of the Pump Up the Jam album. “Rockin’ Over the Beat” was a respectable hit for Technotronic; it reached #9 in the UK, #11 in Ireland and breached the Billboard Hot 100 at #95.

Most 12″ releases featured three remixes by Bernard Sumner of New Order: the “Piccadilly”, “Hacienda” and “Instrumental” mixes, all of which were prefixed with “Rockin’ Over Manchester” (where Sumner is from).

    It’s surely feeling like Summer Paul!! Such memories with Technotronic!! I loved their “Pump Up The Jam” and “Get Up!” singles and this one wasn’t too shabby either. I’m not sure I know of these mixes, but I am excited to check them out. Such a good record with a different sort of vibe compared with the first songs released. Actually, this song took longer to grow on me, but after a while, I was hooked. Thanks for presenting this to us dear Paul!!

    You’re welcome Jeff always liked this song it has a great hook. Bernard Sumner of New Order does a pretty good job at the remixer helm 🙂
