Pump Up The Sound feat. Bani Fyah (Professor Skank Remix)

by Ancient Astronauts

/

about

Bani Fyah is a Ugandan Reggae singer who is based in the country´s capital Kampala. The singer is born in Kabale in the south-west of Uganda, an area close to the border of Rwanda, which is also known for being the home area of the Nyabingi movement. This movement was the name-giving influence behind the Jamaican Nyabinghi branch of the Rastafari movement in Jamaica.

The song “Pump Up The Sound” from Ancient Astronauts´ latest album “ZIK ZAK” features Bani Fyah on vocals with the songstress dropping lyrics condemning slackness and corruption. It has received great support and feedback from DJ´s, sound systems, radio stations and blogs worldwide and surely was one of the golden nuggets on “ZIK ZAK”.

When fellow soundbwoy and producer Professor Skank contacted Ancient Astronauts and offered to do a remix for “Pump Up The Sound” it was a no-brainer for the German production duo cause they have been fans of his music since the release of his song “Revolution”. The remix he created is a deep bouncing remix that has been already tested on a big sound system. PUMP UP THE SOUND !!

lyrics

Chorus
Pump up the sound make we turn on the vibe
Pass me di mike mek me bun up the snitch
Fill up the chalice mek we catch a likkle blaze
Pump up the sound mek we turn up the vibe
Pass me di mike mek me burn up the snitch
Fill up the chalice mek we catch a likkle blaze

Verse 1
Wen we pump up di sound system
We light a fire pon di babylon dem
We light a fire pon di wicked man dem
Dat ah mess up the likkle gyal future
Wid a greedy mind and a empty head
Why dem ah mess wid di likkle pikney dem
(See dat?)
Fire haffi burn all di time
Find out dem a sodomite and cocumbine
Instantly mi insta di freak pon line
And tell her fi stop sell her flesh all di while
She sey she can't stop
She sey time fi di shine
She waan buy everything
And she need every dime
Fi go Sodom and Gomorrah pon di frontline
Aim straight to di head and lick di punchline

The Lioness nah go tame up
Real out there wid a fire jus a flame up
Top on di chat our ting nah go lame up
Di queen forward somebody tell dem di game
Loud and clear mek we pump up the sound

(Sound it!)

Chorus
Pump up di sound mek we turn on di vibe
Pass me di mike mek me bun up the snitch
Fill up the chalice mek we catch a likkle blaze
Pump up di sound mek we turn on the vibe
Pass me the mike mek me bun op the snitch
Fill up the chalice mek we catch a likkle blaze

Outro
Only positivity dat we ah gwaan
Bad vibes we nah waan
Come mek we turn op di sound
And catch a likkle vibe
Bun op bun op!!!
