Here's my birthday treat to everyone... Another mix of old school 90s hip-house, also known as house rap, which mixes the elements of hip-hop and house music. I remember hearing this kind of music in the late 80s with the rise in popularity of M/A/R/R/S' "Pump Up The Volume", Bomb The Bass' "Beat Dis," and Hithouse's "Jack To The Sound," using heavy sampling with their tracks.
It later gained more popularity in the early 1990s with the emergence of hip-hop artists like MC Rob Base and DJ EZ Rock, Mr. Lee, Daisy Dee, and Heavy D and The Boyz combining their rap/hip hop style with house music.
But the group, Technotronic, was the most popular artist in this genre producing such hits like "Pump Up The Jam," "Move This," and "Get up," which were all on top of the charts. Soon after, similar artists emerged like 2-Unlimited, Inner City, Haddaway, Bizarre Inc. and a lot more, which paved the way for the "Techno" genre in early 2000.
