Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Pump Up the Volume tells the story of the social and cultural explosion that was House. From its roots in Chicago, where it rose from the ashes of Disco, House music became the soundtrack to every fashion show, after–show party, premiere, and club opening around the world. Today, House is used by leading mainstream music stars, from Madonna to U2, to break into new markets and to update their sound. In fact, House has influenced more artists than any style since rock ‘n’ roll. Pump Up the Volume follows the story from Chicago and New York to Britain, interviewing key players on both sides of the Atlantic. It also considers the social impact of House—a sound that has transcended class, race, and cultural boundaries to become the soundtrack of modern popular culture.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I seriously loved this book- puts a very real and powerful spin on the story of house music which is only powerful if you believe it is yourself. I liked the youtube documentary better because I am not much of a reader- but this was good for my bibliography on my thesis paper on the subject.
