Whoop! Reaches 100

Whoop! Records will release its 100th tune in April 2006, a tremendous achievement for a dance music label. Whoop! has been operating for 12 years.

To survive 12 years in dance music is a real achievement for a record label.

But on 6 April UK label Whoop! will indeed reach 12-years-old, and will
also celebrate its 100th release.

Label bosses Andrew Lekker and Joel Xavier started Whoop! in 1994 as an output for forward-thinking progressive house, and over the years they have released some of the most important records of the genre.

UK DJ Steve Lawler paid tribute to Whoop!.

He said: "These guys have supplied me with some killer tracks over the years, always keeping quality as their forefront."

Whoop!'s 100th release will be a reworking of the classic 'House Stompin'' by Bump, the track that originally inspired Lekker and Xavier to start the label.

The tune became a hit after DJ duo Sasha & Digweed included it on their famous CD mix compilation 'Renaissance – The Mix Collection 1'.
