[hide]*1 History

History[Edit]Edit

Technotronic was founded by Jo Bogaert end 80 's. Baker was one of the driving forces during the heyday of the New Beat. Also when the New Beat-rage flew over he was not quiet and he kept tinkering with a distinctive sound.

The debut of Technotronic Pump Up the Jamwas. Felly Kilingistood on stage, but in the studio was performed by the Zairean Manuela Kamosi (Ya Kid K). Manuela Kamosi is the older sister of Karoline Kamosi, which later became known under the name Leki.

The single did very well in almost all countries of the world, and was no. 1 in most of those countries. The song remained in the US stuck at no. 2 so Soeur Sourire Dominique of there remained the biggest hit ofBelgian soil. In total, from "Pump up the jam" sold more than 3.5 million copies worldwide.

After a few more singles were released: Get Up! (Before The Night Is Over) and This beat is Technotronic. This missed the huge sales of the debut, because they are the surprise effect of it were missing. Pump up the jam still has the status of nineties classic, although the number is already released in the mid-1980s.

For the second album, Body to Body, did Baker call on Reggie, one of the two cheerful ladies who were known with Indeep (known from Last night a dj saved my life). This album generated sales not half as much as the first.

Three years after their first success, the single Move this from the debut album (also with Kamosi) popular thanks to its use in an advertisement of Revlon. It rose to number 6 of the Billboard-charts in the United States.

A total of more than 14 million albums sold Technotronic all over the world.

They were in the 90 's an opening act for Madonna's Blond Ambition Tour.
