Armin Van Bureen’s dream has become reality.
“I’ve always been a fan of the song,” van Buuren says. “I was 6 when it came out. I’ve heard it many times, and years ago, I had a conversation with my publisher saying if there could be one track that I want to get my hands on one day, it’s ‘Jump.’ He remembered that, and a couple of months ago, I got the stems from a befriended label. First of all, to have the original stems to such an iconic record is amazing. I sent the mix it a label … For about two weeks, I didn’t hear anything, then I got a phone call when I was on my way to Israel to do a gig. My publisher couldn’t breathe. He was like ‘David Lee Roth loves it, and he loves it so much, he wants to come to Miami to perform with you.‘ That’s when I couldn’t breathe anymore.”
