Pump Up The Jam – The Song
‘Pump Up The Jam’ is a release by the Belgian electronic music project formed in 1987 by Jo Bogaert. The song was originally an instrumental released under the name The Pro 24s. Based on Farley Jackmaster Funk’s “The Acid Life”, this instrumental initially included vocal samples from Eddie Murphy’s “Delirious” live set from 1983 and was months later replaced by newer music, along with a lyrics from Kamosi (Ya Kid K) prior to the song’s international release in September 1989. With Bogaert adopting the name Thomas De Quincey, a front for the act was put together (in a way similar to other Eurodance / Europop products like Black Box or Milli Vanilli), utilising Congolese-born fashion model Felly Kilingi who became the group’s rapper, appearing on the single’s cover art and in the music video. The song became a worldwide success, eventually reaching No. 2 on both the US Hot 100 and the UK Singles Chart in late 1989 and early 1990. It became the first house song to reach the top ten of the US Hot 100 chart. It was also one of the first songs outside Chicago to pioneer the hip-house genre, a fusion of house music with elements of hip-hop.
