It is the first ever cover song by the Estonian funk band that has been releasing original music for 7 years. The track was first released in the end of May with a live video by Ako Lehemets.
Lead singer and co-producer Robert Linna opened up about the idea: “The thought of doing a cover got stuck in my head and I’ve long considered “funkifying” old disco hits. “Pump Up The Jam” was the first choice as it’s trance-like energetic pumping gets you going straight away, and we’ve incorporated the rap part at our live shows already. We spiced it up with some psychedelic synths and reverb and voila – put your shades on and disappear into the night…”
The original track by Technotronic became a global hit as it reached the 2nd spot in charts in the UK and US at the end of 1989 and early 1990. It was also the first house track to ever reach the top 10 of US charts. Stream on Spotify
Raw street funk on one side, with sweet soul on the other — Lexsoul Dancemachine is a 6-man groove band known for tearing venues apart with their stage presence. Active since 2013, the aim of the machine is to hypnotize feel-good music lovers with thumping bass lines, syncopated rhythms, repetitive grooves and soulful vocals. It’s the kind of music you can break dance to, although in between those hard-hitting sounds you’ll find some more tender grooves. During its years of activity, the band has released 3 LPs, toured Europe and the UK and received critical acclaim both locally and internationally, including being continuously supported by the grandmaster Craig Charles, as well as winning Band of the Year at Estonian Music Awards in 2021.
