Best Remixes: Jump
Matt Pop does it again with his remix of “Jump”! The tune features the original David Lee Roth vocal and a sample from Jump by The Pointer Sisters. Crank it up for maximum effect!
The song by Van Halen was released in December 1983 as the lead single from their album 1984. It is Van Halen’s most successful single to date reaching number one on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100. At the time, the song differed from earlier Van Halen songs in that it is driven by a rolling synth line (played on an Oberheim OB-Xa), although the song does contain a guitar solo, which was spliced together from multiple takes. David Lee Roth dedicated the song to martial artist Benny Urquidez, of whom he was a student. Thanks to Matt Pop for this incredible remix!
