Todd Terry & Steve Mac combine on 2023 ‘Jumpin’ Edit
Freeze records bounce into 2023 with a mighty mash-up of two Todd Terry classics, ‘Jumpin’ and ‘Keep On Jumpin’, courtesy of Steve Mac, who has been tearing up dance floors with this potent secret weapon.
As one half of the Rhythm Masters, one of the UK’s premier house music outfits in the ‘90s, Steve Mac has long associated with Todd Terry. An admirer of Todd’s raw NYC house style, Steve leapt at the chance to remix Todd Terry’s classic, ‘Jumpin’ back in 1996 when asked, which hit the clubs again and smashed the UK pop charts at No.7.
“For me & Data Transmission, the original Rhythm Masters remix was one of the first records that got us in the House Music, since then we’ve had Steve Mac play at our 6th, 8th, and 9th birthdays and when I got sent this version of the record, I was over the moon to hear it and that we at Data Transmission would be premiering it!” Grahame Farmer
Fast-forward a quarter of a century, and Steve, now a legendary producer himself, was asked by Techno DJ Mark Broom for a copy of that original ‘Jumpin’ remix. Instead, Steve remembered an edit he did that’s a bit more cut-up, and gave it a pumping boost and passed it on. Mark played it out on his US tour at the end of 2022 — pitching it up for his Techno sets, which went down a storm and subsequently set social media on fire with a video of him playing the track.
Inundated with requests from DJ’s for a copy, Steve presented it to Todd, who was initially unsure about revisiting the classic track again, but when he heard Steve’s edit with fresh ears, he was immediately convinced it deserved to be out there for one more round. ‘Jumpin (Keep On Jumpin’ Steve Mac Edit)’ precedes Steve’s artist album, ‘Bless This Acid House’, which drops on Jack Said What Recordings in April, featuring legends Marshall Jefferson, Robert Owens, the late Sleezy D, E-Raze, and author Irvine Welsh, among others.
We premiere the ‘Keep On Jumpin Steve Mac VIP Edit’ today on Data Transmission and grab it here.
