German drummer Jens Müller fancied himself a rapper in the early-1990s (he should have stuck to drumming). His 1992 single “Keep The Promise” comes off as a poor attempt to copy Pop Will Eat Itself. Ben Grosse and Marc Kinchen were tasked with remixing the song, although as the saying goes, you can’t polish a turd…

The group enjoyed great success throughout the 1990s with a string of hit singles and best-selling albums, not to mention a couple of BRIT Awards and the 1994 Mercury Prize. The belated US issue of “Moving On Up” benefited from new remixes by Marc Kinchen, which joined mixes produced by Roger Sanchez, and the band’s original versions.
