“Pump It” was my first experiment with music production. According to my records, it was put together in 2001.

For the FOUNDATION mix, I put together a remix with a more modern feel. Lately I’ve been very inclined to update some of my own older material in this way: pick out the parts I liked when I put them together, and make the technical end a little sharper with the tricks I’ve picked up over the last decade or so.

At the time the first iteration came out, I was influenced by a lot of hard house, in particular Klubbheads, but wanted to put my own spin on it. The new version has some reference to the original, but has a much less frantic pace and a big room feel.
