Alice Deejay biography

The dutch collective, Alice Deejay, is formed by the production teams Pronti (aka Sebastiaan Molijn) & Kalmani (Eelke Kalberg), DJ Jurgen, M. van der Kuy & DJ Isaac, Hazerdous, Svenson & J. Gielen and Danski & DJ Delmundo (of the Vengaboys) and the frontlady, Judy (Judith Anna Pronk) who, according to the rumors, only lipsynced.

Born December 8th 1973 in Amsterdam, Judy started learning classic dance from the early age of 6. She has a teacher degree, though she has not chosen this carreer. At the age of 18, she started working in discos in Amsterdam as a DJ.

On stage, the project is represented by Judy and the dancers Mila and Angel (aka Mila Levesque & Angelique Versnel). Alice Deejay did an instant breakthrough with their debut single, Better Off Alone, which reached # 4 in Israel, # 2 in the UK and # 32 in the USA. It was produced by DJ Jurgen, who released singles like Higher & Higher in 1999 (with a trancy music like Better Off Alone and a beautiful female vocalist) and One Step Closer (which reached top 10 in Israel). Better Off Alone is also known to be the most remixed song ever. Pronti recalls " I came up with the sentence "Do you think you're better off alone" when the love of my life had left me. It's kind of ironic cause I never even told her the song was about her."

Better Off Alone was followed by another mega hit, Back In My Life : it scored # 5 in Israel, # 4 in the UK and # 17 in Germany. The band's style is defined as trancepop : the music was trance, while the singing was in a pop style. Alice Deejay's debut album, Who Needs Guitars Anyway ?, was released in April, 2000. The album contained 14 tracks and the video of Back In My Life.

At the end of the year, they won the award for their hit single, Better Off Alone, in the category Best Chart Act, defeating other nominees such as All Saints, Jennifer Lopez, Eiffel 65 and the Vengaboys. They were nominated for Radio Music Award (in the Most Requested Party Song category for Better Off Alone)

Afterwards they released the single Will I Ever which was # 9 in Israel, # 7 in the UK Followed the equally successful The Lonely One (# 5 in Israel and # 16 in UK).

2001 : The follow-up Celebrate Our Love was #17 in the UK on February 2001. It was also their last single to chart in the UK.

2002 : Judy announced the split of the Alice Deejay project. The producers created a new project called Candee Jay.

2004 : one of the former dancers Angelique started her own company (AV Performing Productions) and gives training lessons as well as creating complete choreographies for artists, bands and commercial shows.

2005 : Judy is working as a freelance hair makeup artist and beauty/fashion consultant. Mila Levesque has graduated from the famous Lucia Marthas dance academy and, after Alice Deejay, is still very active in the world of dance. She has released a single Lift Me Up for a lollypop commercial.

2007 : Judy nowadays works as an announcer at the Dutch Nickeledeon channel.

2012 : melody of Better Off Alone was covered by David Guetta feat. NeYo and Akon on their single Play Hard.
