Title - '21 Jump Street' (Soundtrack)
Artist - Peter Bernstein

'21 Jump Street' focused on Officer Tom Hanson (Johnny Depp) and his band of agents in the special Jump Street division who would go undercover to infiltrate local schools and put a stop to crime to keep students safe from corrupt influences.

The 21 Jump Street team was a mixed group which included the wise cracking Officer HT Ioki (Dustin Nguyen), the brilliant Officer Judy Hoffs (Holly Robinson Peete), the streetwise Officer Doug Penhall (Peter DeLuise) and, in latter episodes, the renegade Officer Dennis Booker (Richard Grieco).

'21 Jump Street' was among the fledgling Fox TV network’s biggest breakout hits and made stars of the young cast, especially Johnny Depp and Richard Grieco.

Like everything else about the show, the score became something new in the history of television. “The cast, stories and music were all aimed at a new generation of viewers largely ignored by series television of the time and helped launch the careers of many young directors and actors including its top billed star Johnny Depp,” explained Peter Bernstein.

The music itself was also revolutionary in how it was recorded. Bernstein composed anywhere between 12 and 20 minutes of music per episode, as explained in the albums extensive liner notes by Jim Lochner, working from his home studio set up in his spare bedroom – a rarity at the time - using mostly samples, a bank of synthesizers, with an occasional acoustic overdub.

As the series evolved through the years, so did the music. “It got a little darker as time went on, more emotional,” Bernstein said. “In the beginning, I think it was enough to have some rhythm going on. As time went on, everybody was digging deeper and the series changed. The music reflected that.”
