We are now living in probably the golden age of house music. But it wasn't always the case. House music took over in the early 1980s, when club Djs started mixing popular songs.

House music is characterized by repetitive 4/4 beats, rhythms provided by drum machines, synthesized basslines, and off-beat hi-hat cymbals. And while house music was similar to disco music, the main difference is that house music is electronic and minimalistic. The repetitive rhythm is what gives flair to the music, not the song itself.

House music started in clubs in Chicago, and it took few years until the genre made it to Europe. Pump up the volume was the song that brought house music to Europe.

In that spirit, it is only logical that the name of the historic documentary about house music is pump up the volume. House music become so popular, that even artists like Madonna, Tina Turner, Whitney Houston, Kylie Minogue and others incorporated it in their music in the 1990s.
