Jump - Funkatarium / Groovalution

Shock horror - a prog house track! This was an anthem back in the day, from the very brief period when I attended Slam at the Arches before heading to the darker territory of Pussypower then Pure.

This was from the time when I had no idea about dance music, and only got the name of this track via a random phone conversation with a guy when his flatmate was playing it in the background. I got him to go and get the title of it and it was duly purchased the next day.

It's all about the breakdown with bells on, at around the 1:30-2:00 mark. Sounds slow as fuck now, needs to be pitched up to about +3 or thereabouts but I've ripped it at the traditional 'green light' setting for you to do what you want with.

Never bothered with the b-side (Groovalution) before just ripping it there. Fairly average but I'll let you make your own mind up.

A - Jump - Funkatarium
B - Jump - Groovalution

Brillz and skillz! I love this track, but didn't know (or had forgotten) what it was. What a great blog this is, always full of excellent music. I've got a CD in the car that I've ripped from a selection of your posts that fucking *rocks*. Just like you.

Aw, thanks Nolan. Comments make it all worthwhile, but coming from YOU that means all the more. Glad to be of assistance...

They played this at Melting Pot last time I went. Still sounded magic
