Pump Up the Jam (also known as Pump Up the Jam: The Album in North America) is the debut studio album by Belgian dance act Technotronic. It was released on 28 November 1989. When it was discovered that model Felly lip-synched to vocals that were actually performed by Belgian emcee Ya Kid K, the album's artwork, which had featured a picture of Felly, was changed to feature Ya Kid K instead. The album reached number 2 on the UK Albums Chart.

Pump Up the Jam," "Get Up (Before the Night Is Over)," "This Beat Is Technotronic," and other highly infectious club hits didn't do much in the rap or R&B markets, although Technotronic did enjoy some exposure outside of dance music circles thanks to the inclusion of "Move This" (also included here) in a 1992 Revlon commercial employing supermodel Cindy. But on the whole, this collection appealed primarily to Technotronic's target audience: dancers and club hounds.
