Ed Muzik – Pump Up The Volume

On June 11, 2010, in MP3 Download, New to Starlifter, by Dr Hitchcock

Local electro pop-tart Ed Muzik and his band the Burning Sensations are back with more airhorns and cowbells on their latest song ‘Pump Up The Volume’. Crank this on your next d-floor! We’ve just added it to the Starlifter playlist and you can download it for yourself from: here

Here’s the hype:

The biggest thing since the Clyde Dam – it’s Pump Up The Volume. Air horns, floors toms, 20 vocal tracks, jittery synths and cock-a-hoop lyrics. Itʼs everything youʼve come to expect from Ed Muzik, plus more. Itʼs Ed Muzik on crack. More crack. More, good crack. It’s Ed Muzik times infinity. Squared.
Pump Up The Volume harks back to the rave era, to the late 80ʼs and early 90ʼs, to acid and warehouses, but without the homoerotic mimicry that characterises so much of the retro smiley-face crowd. Instead of simply glamourising the party and the excesses of wasted youth, Pump Up The Volume traces the arc of a house party, the rise and fall. Cos what goes up, must come down.
Ed Muzik and the Burning Sensations recently debuted Pump Up The Volume when they toured in support of Minuit. Test audiences responded
well to it, and it was decided that a video should be commissioned for the song.
This is the anthem for a generation (albeit, a very small subset of that generation.) Be sure to check out edmuzik.co.nz for for information and other bullshit
This is NOT the Christchurch sound - Vol. 1

This is NOT the Christchurch sound - Vol. 1

Well it kind of is. I just thought I’d be a little controversial with my post heading. It’s NZ Music Month here in NZ so I thought I’d play some NZ music on Starlifter Radio. Actually that’s not true either, the kiwi tunes I’m playing on my little internet radio station are getting played because they’re fucking great and I’m really diggin’ them at the mo.

To start off with I’ve got the original “This is NOT the Christchurch sound” CD. It features songs on the Indie Rock to Electro spectrum from bands and artists such as Ed Muzik, Tom Cosm, Break Mission Kills, Charlie ASH, Pig Out, Get Set Play, The L.E.D.s, Tiger Tones, 5 1/2 Minutes, Electro Pussy Posse and more. We released it with RDU 98.5 FM in June 2007 to get some attention for all the local acts we thought deserved a little more attention.

Then we have my latest DJ mix ‘Interstella Week Beats Your Intergalactic Year”, a set containing electronic beats and grooves from LCD Soundsystem, Daft Punk, DIM, Uberzone, The Future Sound of London, Vinyl Life & Joey Beltram, Rocha + Lewinger, Underworld and Telefon Te Aviv.

And further on the Christchurch tip we’ve got tracks from Bang! Bang! Eche!, Hypercolour, No Aloha; Auckland cats Bandicoot; and Ex-Dunners now AK kats (I think) Brains.

There is also the latest from School of Seven Bells, these guys are amazing!

So that’s the go, there’s heaps more on there as well so be sure to tune into www.StarlifterRadio.com and get down with your bad elf.
