Jive Bunny and the Mastermixer

Jive Bunny's three number ones were "Swing the Mood", "That's What I Like" and "Let's Party".[2] All three songs used sampling and synthesisers to combine pop music from the early rock and roll era together into a medley. The results were similar to Jaap Eggermont's Stars on 45 from the late 1970s and early 1980s, although he had hired "sound-alike" singers and musicians to recreate the music from scratch. Also similar was Mirage, active from the mid to late 1980s. Jive Bunny, Mirage and other similar concepts probably helped to establish the 'mash ups' phenomenon in which two or more songs are combined to create a new composition.

Jive Bunny and the Mastermixers were an 80's novelty pop music act from Rotherham, Yorkshire, UK.
The face of the group was Jive Bunny himself, a cartoon rabbit who appeared in the videos, and also (as a human being in a costume) did promotional appearances for them.
They were only the third artist ever to have their first three releases go to number one on the UK singles chart, a feat they achieved between July and December 1989
