TECHNOTRONIC is the act that first rocked the international dance community to its core in 1989. The collaboration of unique musical talent that unexpectedly pushed house music into the mainstream; it is the band behind the house anthem “Pump Up The Jam”.
Aiming to fuse hip-hop and house, TECHNOTRONIC was the brainchild of the Belgian producer Jo Bogaert who collaborated with the vocal talent of Manuela Kamosi (Ya Kid K) to devastating effect. Their first single was the groundbreaking “Pump Up The Jam” – a track that took the world by storm and one which is now considered a seminal house classic. Originally recorded as an instrumental, the track eventually reaching #2 in both the US Billboard Hot 100 and the UK Singles Chart in late 1989/early 1990, becoming the first song in the house music genre to achieve commercial status. Follow up singles such as “Get Up! (Before The Night Is Over)”, “This Beat Is Technotronic” and “Move This”, all enjoyed extensive chart success throughout the world.
TECHNOTRONIC’s debut album titled “Pump Up The Jam” was also a major success and their total record sales are now somewhere in the region of 14 million.
At the peak of their original success, TECHNOTRONIC played live shows opening for the likes of Madonna as well as making TV appearances on ‘Saturday Night Live’, ‘The Arsenio Hall Show’ and ‘It’s Showtime At The Apollo’. Throughout the 1990s they went on to release albums and further singles such as “Move It To The Rhythm” while their music also featured in a number of high profile Hollywood films.
TECHNOTRONIC remain in huge demand and are destined to reclaim their ownership of the dance floor.
