80's and 90's 12 Inch Mixes

M|A|R|R|S – Pump Up The Volume (Remix) (UK 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 19th April 2017

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1987

“Pump Up the Volume” is the only single by British recording act M|A|R|R|S. Recorded and released in 1987. In Europe a second 12″ single was released featuring a “Remix”. This remix became the best-known version of the track, transforming it by the addition of numerous samples which provided the record with additional hooks besides its oft-repeated title chant, such as samples of tracks by Public Enemy, Criminal Element Orchestra and the Bar-Kays being used. It was this remix, rather than the original, that was edited down to create the 7-inch version of the track, which began picking up radio play.

The single reached #1 on the U.K. singles chart.

M|A|R|R|S – Pump Up The Volume (US 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 18th April 2017

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1987

“Pump Up the Volume” is the only single by British recording act M|A|R|R|S. Recorded and released in 1987, it was a number-one hit in many countries and is regarded as a significant milestone in the development of British acid house music and music sampling. The song derives its title directly from a lyrical sample from “I Know You Got Soul”, a hit single by labelmates Eric B. & Rakim, released months prior in that same year.

The single was the product of an uneasy collaboration between electronic group Colourbox and alternative rock band A R Kane, two groups signed to the independent label 4AD. The link-up was suggested by label founder Ivo Watts-Russell after the two groups had independently sounded him out about the possibility of releasing a commercially oriented dance record, inspired by the American house music that was starting to make an impact on the UK chart. When the M|A|R|R|S project was first released early in 1987, the popularity of the style of the song had already started to grow.

The single was very successful in the United Kingdom, peaking at number two on the UK Singles Chart. It reached #1 on the Billboard Hot Dance Club Play chart for one week and was Bomb the Bass’ only chart hit in the U.S.
