Estonian funk outfit Lexsoul Dancemachine are known for their blistering live shows so it was only natural that for their first ever cover, they would choose Pump Up The Jam by Technotronic. What?! Pump Up The Jam?!!! The cheesy, 1989, Euro-hip-house, world-wide hit, Pump Up The Jam? ‘Pump up the jam, Pump it up, While your feet are stomping’ Pump Up The Jam? That Pump Up The Jam? Er – yes – the very same. Still it’s curious the way over the decades, things acquire a quaint nostalgia. And when you factor in that LDM’s idea to pimp up the jam (thank you, I’m here all week!) was to make it over as a Budos Band-style slab of psych-funk, it all begins to make sense. So much so, in fact, that you are liable to get your booty on the floor tonight and make their day. Check out the video below.
