"Keep on Pumpin' It" is the title of a single creditably from British producer duo Visionmasters (Paul Taylor and Danny Hybrid) and DJ Tony King featuring vocals from Australian musician Kylie Minogue. The single consists two versions: the "Angelic Remix", which was mixed by Vision Masters, and the "Astral Flight Mix", which was mixed by producer Phil Harding.

It was written by Minogue, Mike Stock and Pete Waterman. It samples Freestyle Orchestra's "Keep On Pumping It Up" and Minogue's vocals from her song "I Guess I Like It like That".

Although it was said to be a big club dance hit upon its release, it charted low on the UK Singles Chart.

Background and production[edit]

King previously remixed Minogue's track "Step Back in Time".

On the back cover of the CD single, The Visionmasters were said to be "a concept born out of visions at Angels Burnley," a nightclub where Taylor held a residency at throughout the 1990s, and originated his Retro club night there.[1][2][3]

Pete Waterman called the song a "more trendy" track. "By this time, Kylie is started to become en vogue in all the clubs and suddenly, it became trendy to play her at the Haçienda. And we don't ever think when we were doing 'I Should Be So Lucky' that Kylie would have ever been played at the Haçienda."
