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.

Bomb The Bass – Beat Dis (UK 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 17th April 2017

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1987

“Beat Dis” is a 1988 track by British act Bomb the Bass, a studio production formed by producer Tim Simenon, from the act’s album Into the Dragon. It, like other hits of the era such as “Pump Up the Volume” by MARRS and “Theme from S’Express” by S’Express, largely consisted of samples.

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.

The record sleeve features a smiley lifted from Watchmen. This usage was the origin of the use of the smiley as a symbol for acid house.
