When voltage increases why does current.

In a dc circuit, where a power supply connected into a circuit containing an amp meter, when you crank up the voltage of the power supply the reading of the amp meter also increases. With the definition of current being, the amount of charge passing a point per unit time. Does increasing the voltage increase the velocity of the charges, or increases the density of the charges, both or something completely different.
