1987 (one-off project)


M/A/R/R/S was a one-time project, combining the talents of the groups A.R. Kane and Colourbox in the UK. Their only commercial single was "Pump Up the Volume", which was featured in the episode "Baseballs of Death" of the series Miami Vice.

The song was an early example of "sampling", used routinely today in songs by many hip-hop and dance songs. The group ran into a number of legal issues (with the samples) and personnel issues and did not record any other songs. The recording was nominated for Best Instrumental Performance at the Grammys, and reached the Billboard Top 20.
