Artiestinformatie

Land   BelgiĆ«

Deze Belgische New Beat-groep werd eind jaren ’80 opgericht door Jo Bogaert.


Met het nummer Pump Up The Jam maakte de groep zijn debuut van het gelijknamige album. In de studio werd het nummer gerapt door Manuela Kamosi (Ya Kid K), maar op het podium stond Felly Kilingi. De single werd een wereldwijd succes met een verkoop van meer dan 3,5 miljoen exemplaren. De singles die daarna werden uitgebracht zoals, Get Up! (Before The Night Is Over) en This Beat Is Technotronic deden het goed, maar ze konden het succes van de eerste single niet overtreffen. Wel een ander opvallende van dat album was de single Move This. Deze single wordt populair door het gebruik daarvan in de reclame van Revlon in 1992.


Voor het tweede album werd de hulp ingeschakeld van Reggie, één van de dames van de groep Indeep. De verkoop van het album viel echter enorm tegen. Het verkocht niet eens half zo goed als het debuutalbum.


Ze staan in de jaren 90 in het voorprogramma van Madonna’s Blond Ambition Tour.


In 1995 brengen zij hun vijfde album genaamd Recall uit. Uiteindelijk heeft de groep meer dan 14 miljoen albums en singles verkocht.


Songtekst

When I'm down on the microphone stand
I give you all the dope lyrics and
Introducin' the band to make you understand
How this is planned, I demand

A microphone to rock the home boys
With an instrumental to make noise
Yo, I'll rock the home girls too
I'll explain the name of the crew

Yo, this beat is, this beat is
This beat is Technotronic
This beat is Technotronic
And Eric got lyrics for y'all

I saw your posse but now it's me who's bossin'
So I'm givin' the orders around here
You don't wanna get sacked so be a
Good party goer, get the floor ready

And yourself ready, huh, I rock steady
Like a rock, then I won't stop till it's at the top
And the [Incomprehensible] drop to hop to it
Yo, they couldn't do it to get more to the point

They blew it but not like you're blowing a speaker
They can't go on because they're weaker
I seek a strong posse I insist for this the [Incomprehensible]
People prove that letha l beats can equal feats that I produce

And Techno produced it so tight right
Yo, it can't be a loose fit
So step right up for your sizes
You know what the first prize is, yo

This beat is, this beat is
This beat is Technotronic
This beat is Technotronic
And Eric got lyrics for y'all

This beat is, this beat is
This beat is Technotronic
This beat is Technotronic
This beat is Technotronic

This beat is, this beat is
This beat is Technotronic
This beat is Technotronic
And Eric got lyrics for y'all

Dance floor, must rush
You don't wanna make noise so, hush
Shh, listen, no hissin' and booin'
I mean who in the world is fresher

I test a M.C. in my spare time
But right now I'm making the song
I'm on the right track
There's the dope beat and this is the rap

That was a warning, I'm getting warm and
Now we're all in participation
Move the nation, this creation
I put the bass in, I put the rhymes in

Side to glide and ride
So lonely I confide in to you to
Let all the beats just move you
Now you know what you gotta do

This beat is, this beat is
This beat is Technotronic
This beat is Technotronic
This beat is Technotronic

This beat is, this beat is
This beat is Technotronic
This beat is Technotronic
This beat is Technotronic

Now when I'm down on the microphone stand
I give you all the dope lyrics and
Introducin' the band to make you understand
How this is planned, I demand

A microphone to rock the home boys
With an instrumental to make noise
Yo, I'll rock the home girls too
I'll explain the name of the crew, huh

This beat is, this beat is
This beat is Technotronic
This beat is Technotronic
This beat is Technotronic

This beat is, this beat is
This beat is Technotronic
This beat is Technotronic
There's a dance floor get on it

Y'all say peace
[Inaudible]
Yeah, yeah

This beat is, this beat is
This beat is Technotronic
This beat is Technotronic
And Eric got lyrics for y'all

I saw your posse but now it's me who's bossin'
So I give the orders around here
You don't wanna get sacked so be a
Good party goes, get the floor ready

And yourself ready, huh, I rock steady
Just like a rock, then I won't stop
I won't stop till it's at the top
And the [Incomprehensible] to hop to it

Yo, I mean who it's appealing to has to show
And prove and move
And you've been waiting for great
Interpretations of beat creations

And I put the bass in, my rhymes race in
Set the pace and I'm the ace
And I don't mean you facin' my direction
Get to the dance floor section

Yo, this beat is, this beat is
This beat is Technotronic

This beat is Technotronic
There's a dance floor, you get on it
