BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1990

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).
