M|A|R|R|S - Pump Up The Volume Crijevo

While all hail to the sample-heavy title track that swallowed its own creators, both creatively and legally, it is the b-side (or as it insists, the aa-side) that gives way more weirdness to it. Whoever is "Anitina", the dreamy vocals drenched in feedback and echo-delay, blending with guitars and a smashing beat box, do way more justice to what M/A/R/R/S may have become from the over-exploited one-hit wonder they remain to be. Of course, there are several variations of both tracks via different editions. Each interesting to explore while differences are way more audible in the aa-side's versions. The main beast of a track is lost in its variants though, and depending on your personal taste - or better, mood - "Pump Up the Volume" will either thrill you or annoy you.

MARRS the name was a one hit wonder but the producers were far from it.

"Pump up the volume" is a great electro-dance-disco blend which keeps a pounding rhythm and Great lyrics to put a smile on your face as well. Enjoy!

Don't miss the hidden gem on the flip - Anitina (First Time I See She Dance). An interesting and groovy mid-tempo industrial club track with some solid drum and bass programming, wailing voices, strange samples. Best of Colourbox style without the cheese.

If there's a song out there that it's worth to be labeled "historical track" this is the one.
A revolution, this is the bridge from 70s/80s typical discomusic to a new world.

Not owning this record should be considered a crime.
