Image: 1587933 Pressed On Green Vinyl! HOUSED IN AN 8-GAUGE CRYSTAL CLEAR CUSTOM PLASTIC JACKET! SIDE ONE: Jump Around (Original Mix) SIDE TWO: Jump Around (Pete Rock’s Blood Stain Remix) / “Jump Around” is an impossibly infectious and catchy single. By now you’d be hard pressed to find a music fan of any genre not familiar with House of Pain or their smash hit. The song has been a main stay in arenas for the past 20+ years. Released on Tommy Boy Records and produced by Muggs (who had just masterminded Cypress Hill's groundbreaking debut) “Jump Around” has a beat that is just undeniable. Made up of part Chubby Checker, rare Soul breaks and a hint of B-Boy classic Wild Style, Muggs crafted what would go down as one of the best beats of that year. Everlast was able to match the beats intensity with his gruff voice , and countless quotable lines. The beat, the raps, the hook, it was all there. B-Boys and Punk Rockers alike gravitated towards the song, it was everywhere, even before the tidal wave of attention the cut received on MTV. So what do you do when you have a song this big and need a remix - you get super Producer Pete Rock. By ’92 Pete Rock's legend had grown to being one of the top producers and remixers in the game. A year prior he had astonished rap fans with his reworking of Public Enemy’s “Shut’em Down” with a pan/horn effect that was so ahead of its time. Known as the “Blood Stain” mix, Pete’s remix for “Jump Around” is just as heralded as the original, which is no easy task. Going down as one of the greatest remixes in Hip Hop history, this exclusive 12” is bring the best of both worlds, available on limited Green Vinyl as a testament to the group’s Irish Heritage.
