Noc In Dan (2002)
2 Alive is a project from Slovenia created in 1996. It featured the rapper Goran Bilbija and the female vocalist Vivian Trebicnik. The group was licensed by the records company Megaton Records. In 1996 they released their first album called 2 Alive, which was very succesful in Slovenia.
The biggest succes were Oprosti Mi, Nekje Dalec Stran and Vzela Bi Te. English versions of these tracks (Tell It To My Heart and In The Sky) were released in Germany under the label ZYX. None of the above records were released as singles in Slovenia since the local market (2.000.000 million inhabitants) cannot consume large quantities of singles...
However in 1997 there was a single release of the song Se Eno Noc. On this single the rapper Goran was not present anymore. He had left the group and gone to Italy to pursuit his handball career. After this single release Vivian had to rename the group's name to 2 Alive Vivian and in 1998 she released the album entitled Cas Za Ljubezen also under Megaton Records.
In the year 2000, a remix of Iluzija was released, and a year later
came a track called Vrni Se, this time under the name of Vivian only.
The 2002 release was called Vzemi Me and last year's Noc In Dan
was the last we heard from Vivian... In the meantime Vivian got pregnant, and
it is still not certain whether she will return to the music business afterwards...
Along with the group 4 Fun, 2 Alive were the beginners of Slovenian Eurodance and one of the most played artists in Slovenia clubs ever.

Dutch brothers Bobby and Martin Boer had been experimenting with music for years in a little bedroom. But then in 1990 things really started to happen for them, the single Can't Help Myselfwas picked up by Dutch radiostations and became an international hit.
The composing brothers Bobby and Martin appointed rapper Da Smooth Baron MC and the singers Peggy 'The Duchess' and Gale Robinson to form the 2 Brothers on the 4th Floor stage-act. The next single Turn Da Music was somewhat less successful but really helped spreading the name 2 Brothers on the 4th Floor.
After these two singles the project was put on a halt. Martin movedinto a new professional studio and started making remixes under the name Dancability Productions. He made remixes for acts like Becky Bell and Twenty 4 Seven , he also made the Veronica Megamix 1993 for Veronica Radio. In the meanwhile Bobby was busy designing record-covers and CD-inlays.
In 1994 they decided to revive the 2 Brothers on the 4th Floor-project. Bobby joined Martin in his studio and after a while they finished their first track Never Alone. This single was the first to be launched with rapper D-Rock (Renee Philips) and singer Des'ray (Desirée Claudette Manders).
The renewed style and concept got out real fine. Never Alone topped the charts for weeks (Number 1 in Israel) and even got a golden status. The consecutive single was called Dreams, it went right up to the #1 position (#2 in Israel), and Let Me Be Free got a long stay in the national top 10 and peaked # 3 in Israel. In July 1994 the album Dreams hit the shops, it stood in the national album charts for weeks and got very positive reviews.
In 1995 and 1996 the 2 Brothers on the 4th Floor even widened their success with the singles Fly (Trough The Starry Night), Come Take My Hand and happy harcode track Fairytales (inspired from a classical composition by Johann Pachelbel, Canon in D Major). These singles really topped the charts in various European countries and all over the world (Fairytales was #1 in Israel). Some of them were remixed by the Lick project team.
In the end of 1996 they released a single called There's A Key and their second album called 2. The next single to be released was One Day and was a R&B track and not the usual happy hardcore/eurodance style.
The next single to be released was I'm Thinkin' of U. It was also the first single not to be included in any album. In March, 1998 2 Brothers on the 4th Floor released a single, their second from the forthcoming album scheduled for release sometime in the fall of 1998. The single was entitled Do U Know, a mid to low-tempo pop track.
In the beginning of fall 1998 the single The Sun Will Be Shining was released and contained remixes by Mark van Dale & Enrico, Dance Therapy and the Dub Foundation. It also contained a bonus CD-ROM Part with the video of The Sun Will Be Shining and The Making Of. They toured in Canada starting from the end of June.
February 5th, they released a new single called Heaven Is Here. They completely updated the sound to the current future trance hype : with that song they stepped into the same progressive music style as Sash!. For the first time, Des'Ray did all the vocals, singing the verses and the chorus. Remixes were done by Olav Basoski, D-Rock and Marco V. & Benjamin.
29th of October 1999 : the follow-up to Heaven Is Here was finally released : Living In Cyberspace was a cover of the hit Living on Video by Trans-X, already covered by Cardenia among others. It reached #28 in the charts.
2000 : before the Summer 2000 they released a single entitled Wonderful Feeling (which peaked #44 in the charts). At the beginning of October, they delivered 2 singles (among them, the long-awaited Shine Like A Star) and the complete third album to CNR/Arcade. Besides a lot of pushing, no one may take a decision about releasing the new singles, because the company was busy at the moment with a co-operation with another company, which was very frustrating for the group and all his fans.
2001 : At the beginning, the name of the new single was Life and it was initailly planned on the 25th of May 2001. Afterwards it was delayed to June or July. Then it turned out to be Stand Up And Live, planned for June, 29th 2001. It was co-produced by G-spott. At first the record was released as "White label" without the artist name. Therefore it was played by several club-DJ's, Radio 3 and ID&T (Radio) and even nominated to the Fresh Top 40 Tip (The most important Clublist). The record was even played a few times on Radio 3. Since the record was going well on its own, everyone may know that it's from 2 Brothers on the 4th Floor. The release date of the album has not been decided yet.
2002 : Des'ray started a solo carreer whereas D-rock was working with E-life.
2004 : The 2 Brothers On The 4th Floor are going to release a best of album and DVD. The release was at first planned to be in November 2004 in Holland. It was finally postponed to March 2005, then to an undefined date...
2006 : on the 13th January, Des'ray and D-rock performed together in a TV show on the Dutch television. They sung one of the 2 Brothers on the 4th Floor hits. Des'ray said that she could not believe how much people still knew their songs and how much their music was still loved.
In July, Ozi meets Tom Mountain released a cover of their hit-single Dreams. The same year, Dreams was also covered by a Dutch solo singer called Mary (real name : Marieke).
D-rock and Des'ray are still doing performances in Holland. They are speaking with a record company to make a 2 brothers DVD or maybe a best of CD. Nothing has been confirmed yet.
2007 : on 20th August, they released a single entitled Never Alone 2, hidden behind the acronym 2B4TH, under the label Mostiko. It contained a sample from the original hit, and mixes from Anonymous, Juno and Lethal MG.
2008 : D-rock and Des'ray took part to the concert I Love The 90s - The Party in Hasselt (Belgium), on April 12th. A fake third album entitled III can be found on the web, spread by some Russian fans.
2009 : Gabry Ponte vs Format C did a cover of Dreams.
2010 : in May, 2 Brothers on the 4th floor released a new album entitled The Best Of in March, available on iTunes. Shortly after, they released a remixes album in 3 volumes.
2011 : Never Alone as well as a few other 2 Brothers songs featured in the trailer of Dutch movie New Kids Nitro. Quintino & Afrojack used a rap sample from Can't Help Myself in their track Let Me See You Dance.
2013 : 2 Brothers on the 4th floor's hit Dreams was covered by DJane Cassey Doreen
2015 : in May, they released a DJ The Viper remix of their hit Come Take My Hand.
2016 : 2 Brothers on the 4th floor double-CD entitled The Very Best Of, then a 2016 version of their hit Dreams remixed by Louis Bailar and Dimitris Kops

Their debut single Oh La La La hit the charts worldwide, including Spain, USA, Italy, United Kingdom, and Germany.

Play This Song (1995)
In 1988 Patrick Claesen, aka Pat Krimson was hired as promotion boy at Antler-Subway Records in Aarschot, Belgium. At that time nobody could have dreamed that this man from Limburg would become one of the driving forces behind this company. He set up a successful record label called Dance Opera and founded the popular Flemish band Leopold 3. Patrick wanted to get his share of the dance hype and therefore began to produce dance products on his own label. One of these products was The Milky Way, the first production under the name of 2 FABIOLA (another tribute to the Belgian royal family). It was not until 6 years later that another record of 2 Fabiola (apart from Kunta Kinte, featuring Blackanova) was released, Play This Song. This extremely catching dance track soon turns out to be a mega formula for their success on the Spanish and Italian music market. The results were 4 weeks number one and for about 6 months a ranking in the official Spanish top 10. This Mega formula didn't pass unnoticed in the Italian charts either: #15 in the official Italian charts. Meanwhile, 2 Fabiola came to be a real band, gradually conquering the European continent with its extravagant looks and strong live-act.
The group involves Zohra (singer, bellydancer), who performed a nunchako dance on stage, integrated in a beautiful choreography elaborated by herself and the sexy go-go dancer Fabio (who stayed with the group until the single Magic Flight). She helped by Carine B who does the background vocals. Apart from this duo, Pat Krimson is on stage too as keyboard man. This trio puts on a stunning 40 minutes show, making the audience wildly crazy. Andrès Romero, a well-known Belgian producer/composer/remixer from Spanish origin (who also did some remixes for Twenty 4 Seven), also took part to the creation of many hits.
2 Fabiola wants to be extravagant in different ways : the way they dress, they way they talk, the way they act. They don't want to shock anyone, they just want to be different. And different they are ! That's one of the main reasons why they are so famous.
The successor record Lift U Up became a huge success once again in Spain and Italy, and this time the Belgian charts didn't let this second success formula go by unnoticed: 5 weeks number 1, both in the Ultratop 30 and the VTW Super 50. And on the top of that, Lift U Up won an award for best Belgian production. The Golden record resulting from these magnificent sales figures, was presented on Friday, June 21, 1996 at club RIO in St.-Katelijne Waver in Belgium. The band was absolutely thrilled with this recognition and said it hadn't expected this kind of success.
In October 1996 the band launched its big Christmas offensive : a X-mas single (the ballad Universal Love), for the Belgian market only, and a debut double album were released. The Tyfoon album, including the hits I'm On Fire, Lift U up, Play This Song and many more, now already accounts for over 25,000 sold copies in Belgium, which means a Golden record again. And while the album was selling like hot cakes, Freak Out, the new single, was being bought on a massive scale too. This up-tempo track with a squelching beat, ecstatic pizzicato tune and summery raga elements is well on its way to become the smashing hit of the spring.
Before Flashback was released, the group decided to make a pause, during which Zorah released her first solo single I Hate 2 Love U. Fabio left the group to concentrate on giving dance lessons. Pat produced some songs like Taboo Bells, My Playground, and Paranoid In Moscow.
Flashback was a highly futuristic number, somewhere between an authentic underground club record and a hypercommercial radio hit. With a combination of genuine trance sounds, along with melancholic melodies and the goading voice of Zohra, Pat, together with her producer Oliver Adams, was again on the trail of the ultimate number one hit. The theme ? Manga, a Japanese cultural phenomenon now also becoming popular among the young of Europe. The choreography and dress, the brand-new Manga look the group has taken on, is yet another of Zohra's achievements.
Afterward they released their single Sisters & Brothers, which was not a big success because they changed their musicstyle to disco, followed by the single Feel The Vibe and the second album Androgyne. Their latest single called Summer In Space and it is featuring Medusa (who is actually Evy Goffin, who later became the leadsinger of the Lasgo project).
In 1999 Pat Krimson started a new project with Nunca, renamed Nunca Brothers in 2001. This same year, the song Es Cubells was released under Pat Krimsons name.
In September 2000 Pat Krimson moved to Ibiza with his girlfriend Ann Vervoort (ex-singer of Milk Inc.), which marked the end of 2 Fabiola and Nunca. Pat started a dance record label called Benimusa Records named after the village they were living in.
In 2001, Zohra who had gone solo as Punk City (together with producer Kris Vanderheyden behind the scenes) released her first single The Mission.
2007 : After 7 years of silence, 2 Fabiola are back. Their new single Straigth 2 The Top was released on September 3rd. It did not feature Zohra who is busy with her model, DJ, TV-series actress and TV-presentor carreer, but Katie Michaelson. The single was written by K. Michaelson, S. Lovchyld, Underscore, Pat Krimson and K. Herme, produced by Pat Krimson and Kristof Herme.
2008 : in April, 2 Fabiola were among the artists who took part to the I Love The 90s concert in Hasselt. Pat was on stage with 2 new singers Viola Furleo (who previously contributed to Basheeba and Indiana) and Loredana De Amicis. They sung some of their former hits, but also We Love the 90s, a new song composed for the party, which was released on April 1st along with a videoclip.
The new single Blow Me Away was released on June 23rd with a new video.
2009 : they had planned to release a new album in October this year, but nothing came out. In December, they released digitally a new single entitled Release Your Soul.
2010 : 2 Fabiola's new single was entitled Push It Up. It was released on July 5th. The video, shot in Ibiza, premiered on July 7th. It introduced a new face : Tamara Reynders (a vocalist from Bilzen), who replaced Loredana. The Push It Up tour started on July 17th.
2011 : 2 Fabiola's new single was entitled Don't Stop.
2013 : Pat Krimson announced that he was working on a new 2 Fabiola single, planned for end of May. But nothing came out...
2014 : 2 Fabiola qualified for Eurosong 2014 semi-final to represent Belgium at this year's Eurovision Song Contest. Title of their song was She's After My Piano. It was finally not selected for ESC, but went viral on the web in no time. Videoclip was directed by Tim Strauwen and shot in Circus Rose Marie Malter and premiered end of April. In August, it was certified gold and won Radio 2 Zomerhit 2014. Because of She's After My Piano's success, next single One Night In Dubai was postponed to September.

Get Ready For This (1991)
Twilight Zone (1992)
First produced by Phil Wilde and Jean-Paul De Coster as an instrumental in Spring 1991, Get Ready For This reached #2 in the UK charts. Ray Slijngaard was contacted to write lyrics and add the rap to the track. He also suggested bringing in a female vocalist who turned to be Anita Doth (Dels), a singer he knew from the club scene in Amsterdam. The new version was released in September the same year, and was an immediate hit in Europe, Australia and Japan. In autumn 1995 it unexpectedly hit the US Billboard Charts for the second time, peaking at #38.
Twilight Zone was released in March 1992. It was the first track to be written as a team by Jean-Paul, Phil, Anita and Ray. Like the previous release, it went silver in the UK, and brought in the first gold record in Holland, as well as their first #1 in most countries. Anita and Ray recorded 2 videos in 2 days : Get Ready For This and Twilight Zone. Back on the road, they visited Scotland, Belium, Spain, Germany, Greece, Argentina and Brazil, from where they flew directly to the World Music Awards in Monaco for a special guest appearence. Twilight Zone eventually peaked in the Billboard Hot 100 at #48, while they made their first appearance there.
To prove they were more than a single-act, the album Get Ready was released on February 24th 1992. Featuring 9 tracks and 5 additionnal remixes, the album was developed in three parts, including a 'romantic' section featuring some ballads. The succes of the album (golden status in the USA, over 500 000 copies sold, and more than 2 million copies sold across the world) largely confirmed their ambition.
Workaholic was first released April 21st 1992. They visited Finland for the first time, then went for a memorable trip to Japan. In the bus from the airport to the hotel they listened to the first demo of No Limits. They were not convinced, although the Japanese loved it immediately.
August 3rd 1992 saw the launch of one of Anita's and Ray's favourite early singles : The Magic Friend. When shooting the video in Australia's Pinnacle Desert and Wave Rock, they discovered that no less than 3 singles were in the charts there, with the album Get Ready topping the album charts as well. Tour brought them to Germany, Belgium, the UK, Ireland (where they had scored 4 consecutive #1 hits) and Canada, immediately followed by the second US tour. In December they were elected Best Newcomers at the Smash Hits Poll Winners Party.
After some debate, No Limit was chosen to announce the sophomore album, and released on January 18th 1993. It was their biggest hit to date, scoring #1 in 35 different countries (including a six-week run in the UK). It is still the most well-known and played 2 Unlimited track. It picked up an incredible string of Gold and Platinum awards, eventually selling over 2,5 million copies worldwide.
Tribal Dance was originally released April 26th 1994. Worries that the band could not survive the mega-hit syndrome were dispelled when it nearly eulas the success of No Limits. It also heightened the expectations about the upcoming album. During their second visit to the World Music Awards, they picked up an award as the World's Bestselling Dutch Recording Artist. It was covered by Italian project Tribal Unlimited.
May 10th 1993, after being recorded, re-recorded, mixed, and re-mixed, No Limits album was finally released. Part of the delay were the endless interruptions for gigs, promo visits and video shoots which cause recordings to be endlessly rescheduled. After the release, the whole world got on the phone, requesting Anita and Ray for shows, TV appearances, interviews, special events etc. As well as returning to virtually every European country, they undertook an extensive Asian tour, which brought them to India, Hong Kong, China, Korea, Japan, the Philippines, Indonesia, Singapore, Malaysia and Thailand. No Limits was the second most sold single in France for the year 1993.
Thinking of the level of poverty that they saw beyond the walls of luxury hotels during their various tours, Anita and Ray wrote Faces, an unusual choice for a dance act but an indication of their awareness of what is happening elsewhere. It was released on August 20th 1993.
Then the fourth hit of the album, entitled Maximum Overdrive, was released in November 8th 1993. When a concert was cancelled due to illness in Denmark, a riot broke out. A short trip brings therm to Russia for the first time, with 2 shows in Moscow. An East European tour is rounded off at the Mega Dance festival in Budapest, where they play in front of 80 000 people. A last highlight of the year is where they are voted Best Dance Act at the Smash Hits Poll Winners Party.
A complete newly recorded version of the album track Let The Beat Control Your Body was released on January 21st 1994, the first single of the year and the last from No Limits. After being renamed Let The Bass Control Your Body to avoid possible misundestanding in French (never heard of that NdLR), it went to #1 in France. Anita and Ray kicked off the year with a tour in Japan and a visit to the Winter Music Conference in Miami.
May 9th 1994 : The Real Thing was the first release from the upcoming album and another #1 in many countries. Its success is a good indication of what is to come from Real Things. At an early stage of the demo, the 'Bach idea' (based on Toccata and Fugue in D minor) was chosen as a likely single. It turned out to be The Real Thing. The title was a sideswipe at the numerous 2 Unlimited soundalike in the stores at the same time.
June 6th 1994 : The day it was released, the third album Real Things went Gold int he UK and straight to #1 in Germany, Holland and France. The release party was held at Disneyland Paris, with press coverage from all over Europe and a spectacular MTV special. Stylistically, the album ranged from upfront eurodance tracks to trancy mid-tempos and electro-ballads. In some countries the album stayed in the charts for over a year.
Realeased on September 19th 1994, No One was one of the singles to get the most airplay on key radiostations all over Europe. At their biggest show so far, 450 000 people caught them at Holland's Parkpop Festival. The next day they left for Australia to shoot the video for No One on Low Island, part of the exotic Great Barrier Reef.
2 Unlimited went interactive with the release of Beyond Limits, a CD-i which featured videos, music, pictures and background information
At the first-ever European MTV-awards in Berlin, the band was nominated in the category 'Best dance act'. On January 7, 1995, in The Netherlands, they got the B.V. Popprijs 1994 award, with 10.000 guilders, which was donated to the United Nation's fund for UNICEF. They even appeared on the popular British sitcom 'Absolutely Fabulous'.
March 6th 1995 saw the release of the 3rd single from Real Things : Here I Go. With this release they equalled a record of 12 consecutive top ten singles. Other members of this select club included Abba, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Kinks, Madonna and The Bee Gees. At Monaco's annual World Music Awards they picked up their 3rd trophy.
The last release from Real Things was Nothing Like The Rain on June 6th 1995. It was also their first ballad as a single, remixed for the dancefloors. During this period, Phil, Jean-Paul, Ray and Anita said they were working on demos for some new tracks which would open the door for the future changes in style.
In 1995, they released a promo single called Kids Like You And Me, basically just a remake of Do What's Good For Me with different lyrics, only released in the Netherlands.
2 Unlimited has many labels all over the globe. In the States, it's Radikal and Critique that bring the country CD and cassettes. Hot Productions handles 12' releases. In Canada, it's Quality Records. In Holland, of course, it's Byte. Germany gets 2 Unlimited stuff from ZYX Records, France from Scorpio. And the U.K. buys from PWL Continental. Greece is handled by FM Records. In Sweden, the old 2 Unlimited were distributed by CNR records and the new by MNW.
October 30th 1995 saw the release of 2 Unlimited's first best of album. Entitled Hits Unlimited, it gathered the 13 previous hits and 3 new tracks that would be released as singles between the end of 1995 and 1996 : Do What's Good For Me, Jump For Joy, and Spread Your Love. The album includes a booklet, which tells the group's history. Nobody knew it at this time, but these were Anita's and Ray's last appearances with 2 Unlimited. Indeed, Anita and Ray thought they had too little input in 2 Unlimited so they finally left the group to begin a solo carreer.
An interview with Anita Doth in the magazine Nieuwe Revu published many years after (in 2001) gives more details. In the beginning Anita and Ray where friends. But Ray couldn't handle his succes. He had sex with a lot of female fans and sometimes he got agressive against Anita and others. But Anita does not blame it to him, she explains it was psychically too hard for him. Anita is more angry about Jean-Paul deCoster, she describes him as a really egoistic money-grubber. When their contract ended in 1996 Ray and Anita had some bad argues with Jean-Paul and Phil Wilde. In the group, Ray and Anita where responsible for the style, the show, the lyrics and the clothes. They asked for more money and influence. Jean-Paul (who did the finances) refused tot give that. After that, Ray and Anita quitted with 2 Unlimited. After the break, a courtcase followed, once again about money : J.P. deCoster sued Anita for destroying his band. But he lost the case and he had to pay Anita the same amount of the money that he demanded because the statetement considered he paid her too little when she was a part of 2 Unlimited.
There were rumors about vocalist Sylvia Samson, who said she already done backing vocals for several 2 Unlimited songs. It was announced that she was going to be the new official 2 Unlimited frontlady, but when the time came for her to sign the contract she refused on her lawyer's advice. She didn't want to be tied up for 5 years. It was later revealed that the whole Sylvia Samson story was pure invention.
The producers searched for new performers. Romy van Ooijen went to Jean-Paul and said that she was interested. After many talks, auditions and try-outs they came to an agreement and she joined 2 Unlimited. Marion van Iwaarden was completing the duo (Marion was initially written with a 'J', but that was changed into an 'I' because it's easier to pronounce in foreign countries). So, following in the footsteps of Magic Affair, the new 2 Unlimited would become a female duo.
1998 was the year that the new formation was presented to the world. They released their first single Wanna Get Up on the 16th of March 1998 in Holland and Belgium. The rest of Europe followed in May and the UK followed in June. After several try-out concerts in Russia and England they were finally ready to conquer the world...
A few weeks after the release of Wanna Get Up, which got heavy airplay in Holland on TV and radio, the new album II was released world-wide.... The 20th of April 1998 was the day that the new album got its press release with more than 60 press bureaux from over the world attending it's presentation. One week later it hit the stores, not in all countries though...
Marion stated in an interview that 2 Unlimited would be heading in a pop direction : no more technobeats, no more raps, but fresh pop/dance songs with future trance influences. In the album you could find some eurodisco tracks (booming euro bassdrums combined with disco sounds and the typical 2 Unlimited melodies). The current sound of the European clubs according to Jean-Paul de Coster. Fortunately for the fans, it also contained several powerful and stomping dance tracks too, such as Never Surrender, I Am Ready and Be Free Tonight... I Am Ready sounded a lot like Sash! 's Ecuador. Closer 2 U was rather a jungle/Drum & Bass track. The producers described it as the best 2 Unlimited album until now...
Wanna Get Up was still storming the international charts while the second single was already out in the Netherlands and Belgium. About The Edge Of Heaven, expectations were even higher than they were with Wanna Get Up, because it saw the return of the 2 Unlimited techno sound trademark : a future trance song with an amazing main hook played by a trumpetist. Some described it as a mixture between Infinity from Guru Josh and the Mas Mix of RAF's Ocean Whispers. The video that came with the new single was shot in Sri Lanka.
2 Unlimited have announced the release of a Christmas single on Dutch television. But in the first week of 1999 the record company Byte Records Belgium announced that Romy had left 2 Unlimited. In a radio interview Marion said that she had already known for a month that Romy was going to leave the band. She said that they still kept in touch with each other often, that they've had a great time together and worked together pretty good. Meanwhile, Romy stated that she wouldn't be surprised if Marion left 2 Unlimited within a month.
With the departure of Romy, 2 Unlimited's future was surrounded with mistery. While looking for a replacement for Romy, the producers were said to be busy on a new strategy, while Marion was writing new songs... Another version of the album II album was released. Destinated to the French market, its cover was the same as the previous version, without Romy's photo. The next single to be released was planned to be Closer 2U, because Marion did the lead vocals on it...
In 1999, Chaah (aka Susanne Jark) used the melody from Let the Beat Control Your Body in her single The Funkiness of You.
2000 : 2 Unlimited were back with a new remake of their hugest hit : No Limits 2000 with remixes of the New Yorkers Razor & Guido and Yves De Ruyter-co-producer Dirk 'Mike' Diericks. Unfortunately it did not mean the comeback of Ray and Anita, and the video was just an animated clip. The single was released in all countries where 2 Unlimited were successful. It was shortly followed by a new album The Millenium Mixes : Byte Records asked several remixers and guest producers (among them Jaydee) to remix 2 Unlimited's best tracks. After the summer the next single was released, a remix of Twilight Zone by DJ Jean.
2001 : according to rumors, all Ray's projects after 2 Unlimited failed. He was said to have went bankrupcy now, and no one knew for sure what he was currently doing. Meanwhile Anita had some success with her solo career, she had already released her third single and said she was happy to work with producers like Adamski and Todd Terry.
2002 : 2 Unlimited released an album entitled Trance Remixes in December. It was a big success.
2003 : some crazy rumors about Ray having died from overdose proved to be totally wrong. Ray was currently working on a brand new project called Legends. He teamed up with Herman Rarebell of The Scorpions to release a single called Eye of The Tiger.
A compilation by Ben Liebrand conatining only 4 DMC remixes only was at first planned, but it was finally cancelled. An album called No Limit Complete Best Of was released in Japan but it was a commercial flop. There was still no certitude if Jean-Paul De Coster (currently very busy working on projects such as Sylver and Kate Ryan) would one day start the project with new performers.
2 Unlimited released a new remake of No Limits under ZYX Music it featured Ray and Anita's original voices. It included remixes by Master Blaster, DJ Sputnik, and DJ Digress. In June it reached #16 in the German charts, so ZYX decided to publish a maxi CD. In the video-clip, one could discover the 2 new faces of the group : Débora Remagen and James Allan, but mostly see parts of the original clip of No Limits with Anita and Ray performing.
Ray appeared 2 times on German TV (ZDF) during Summer 2003, the first time to explain that he was currently negociating a comeback with the 2 Unlimited producers. But finally he asked too much money and was not chosen to be a member of the group again. During the second TV appearance he explained he was not interested in 2 Unlimited anymore, and that now he was a producer. Later, he explained the same to a Spanish magazine which interviewed him in Ibiza.
2004 : the follow-up single was entitled Tribal Dance 2.4. James left the group after the release. He explained he was fed up rapping playback on Ray's voice. He recorded a duo with Damae from Fragma, but the single hasn't yet been released.
Tribal Dance 2.4 entered Austrian charts in February and reached #41 in German DJ Playlist. A DVD & best of album called The Complete History were also released under the German label ZYX. Deborah and Suheil (the new male dancer) were working hard to promote the single. Unfortuntaly, after these last productions, the 2 Unlimited projects seemed once again to have been put aside... Tribal dance 2.4 won't ever be released in Spain because of a fight around the rights between the labels Blanco y Negro Music and the new label Filmax Music.
2005 : DJ Scarecrow used a sample from Twilight Zone in his single Zwielicht. Ray gave an interview in a magazine at the end of the year.
2006 : ZYX in less than 2 years, have acquired most of the rights on the 2 Unlimited productions, they settled in almost all the European countries in order to avoid legal fights with the labels. A new Best Of (digi pack) entitled Hits was released in February, the tracklisting was the same as the bonus CD The Complete History.
In March, Anita appeared on RTL Germany, singing No Limit. The represented 2 Unlimited, but without the authorization of JP de Coster, owner of the project's name.
In Australia, the DVD The Complete History as well as the 2001 Japanese album Greatest Hits remixes was released on the 17th April 2006... The release of Get Ready For This 2006 was cancelled in Australia. A hardcore version of No Limit 2006 was released in the UK.
Deborah and James (and sometimes Sunheil) keep on promoting the 2.4 remixes.2 Unlimited were planned to appear live in the disco Dream in the UK during the month of August.
Sylver's new single Why featured the melody of 2 Unlimited's No Limit.
2007 : in December Ray did a tour as 2 Unlimited across South America. Apart from the 2U hits, he also sung some unreleased tracks, such as Arabesque, Round And Round, Dance With Me...
2008 : Anita and Ray, former 2 Unlimited members, were said to be negociating for a possible 2 Unlimited reunion, for live gigs. Among other demands, they would like to be authorized to use legally under the band name. Both also also announced that they would release their solo album at the same time, in September. But nothing finally came out.
2009 : in January, BeFour released a cover of 2 Unlimited's No Limit.
14 years after they quitted the project, Ray and Anita announced that are working on some new songs, along with one of their former producers Phil Wilde. They won't be allowed to release the new material under the project name 2 Unlimited. In October, after their surprise appearance during Milk Inc Blackout concerts in Antwerpen, they told that they were planning a world tour. Romy & Marion are back too, recording some new songs. Since they don't have the rights on the 2 Unlimited name either, they will use another project name : Two.
2010 : Ray and Anita released their first single since they reunited, entitled In Da Name Of Love. Luca Antolini released Let The beat Control Your Body in his hard trance single Control Your Body. The follow-up single was at first planned to be Still Unlimited, several times postponed, but they revealed in an interview that it would be entitled Nothing To Lose. In November, Bob Sinclar covered 2 Unlimited's No Limit melody in his new single Tik Tok.
2012 : In July, it was announced that, after many years of trials and negociations, Ray & Anita could now officially use the project name 2 Unlimited again. This wwas the beginning of a new cooperation with producer Jean-Paul de Coster and record label Byte Records. In August, Modana & Carlprit inspired from No Limit melody for thier single Club Go Mad.

3-O-Matic were Nancy Rentzsch (who now married DJ Bobo), Tanja Geuder (28 years old at this time), also joined DJ Bobo's team, and the rapper and songwriter George Walden III aka Wild Thang. The producers were N-Dee (Andy Lutschounig) and Frank Lio (Achim Kleist). Nancy and Tanya had been knowing each other since 1986, when they attended the same dance studio. They toured as dancers with Haddaway in 1993. The project'name came from a play on word. 3 was chosen because they were a trio. The other part of the name came from Variomatic, the automatic transmission in Tanya's car (originally created by Dutch car manufacturer DAF, and which was used in over 40 car brands and models).
3-O-Matic recorded an album in 1996 called Senerata which means "Serenate" in English. The album was coproduced by Antonio De'luque which was also the producer of A.A.A.. Amazing pure eurodance singers were featured in this 3-O-Matic album, such as M.J. Gibbs, MC Bla, Serena.The album contained 8 songs, including the singles Success, All I Want Is You and Hand In Hand. The album was never released, unfortunately.
In 1995 3-O-Matic did two remixes for Odyssey's hit-single Face To Face (the Face The House Mix and the Hard Tribe Remix).

4 Jumps is a Eurodance project from Poland under the Polish labels Star Maker, Dens, and Dance World, established in either 1995 or 1996, made up of vocalist Iza Myszkinis, rappes Tomek and Mariusz, and dancer Martin. They are best known for their song Weźmiesz Wszystko.
4 Jumps first appeared on the scene sometime in 1996. Their first single was their song Weźmiesz Wszystko, which became their most popular song. A music video was filmed for the song, most likely to support the release of their debut album with the same name. During 1996 and 1997, 4 Jumps continued to release songs to compilation sets, such as Niech Spełni Się (Każdy Dzień, Każdy Sen), Nie Wiem Co Robisz, and Co Się Jeszcze Wydarzy. During 1996, 4 Jumps released their debut album Weźmiesz Wszystko, which included 13 songs. The vocalist for the album is Iza Myszkinis, better known under her stage name Izabela and as the studio singer for projects such as Karolina, La Strada, and Starmix. English raps were sone by Dariusz Adekoya. Also in the credits of the album, members Tomek and Maruisz, pictured on the cover, are credited as the rappers for 4 Jumps. The album producers are Krzysztof Czub, better known as Dance Bond, and Jacek Kruszewski and mastered by Grzegorz Piwkowski. The album was released as a CD and a Cassette in Poland during 1996 under Dens and Star Maker.
During year 1997, 4 Jumps released a remix of their hit song titled Weźmiesz Wszystko (Jump Jump Mix) and was featured as singers on a new song titled Świat Się Z Nami Kręci under the name Star Makers feat. Karina Sedkowska, 4 Jumps, Kaska Myszkiewicz, Karolina, D'Adekoya and Cosmica. After 1997, nothing further was released with 4 Jumps so the project is assumed to have disbanded after 1997.

Project was named after the San Francisco 49ers American football team. The first single to be released by 49ers was Die Walküre in 1988. Song was based on a vocal sample from Freeez's I.O.U.. Josy Gil Persia was the frontlady for the project at this time (she was then replaced by Dawn Mitchell), Pieradis Rossini was also a part of the team. He was behind all the hits from the first album : Don't You Love Me (featuring a sample from Jody Watley's hit Don't You Want Me), How Longer, Touch Me (with samples from tracks Rock-A-Lot by Aretha Franklin and Touch Me by Alisha Warren), I Need You, and Girl To Girl, which all reached top 10 places in the charts worldwide. Rumors said that Dawn Mitchell was only a lipsyncer, however she was credited as lead vocalist on Touch Me, while Josy Gil Persia did backing vocals.
In 1991, Media Records boss Gianfranco Bortolotti was searching world-wide for a new singer for 49ers. Over a period of 6 months, a total of 5 singers came to Italy from America and the UK to audition for the new album. The voice had to be perfectly suited and Gianfranco didn't find what he was looking for. The search continued. Finally G.F.B. reached Michael at MCA, who was a personal friend of Ann-Marie Smith's manager. After hearing a demo-tape of her voice Gianfranco knew that the search was over (legend says that she was the 49th singer to be auditioned).
Immediately after, Ann-Marie came to Italy to begin work on the new 49ers album. Her desire to succeed made her all the more popular with the production team of Media Records who find her a joy to work with. The first single from the album Move Your Feet stormed the charts all over Europe and America reaching the first position on the world-wide charts.
Summer 1992 was the time for a double production, double success. 49ers released another great mix Got To Be Free obtaining big results from sales and press but it's with The Music Is Moving, the first track made with Fargetta, that she became the queen of the summer. The song was played in every radio, in all kinds of clubs and Ann-Marie was invited to many shows to promote the song and the new album, Playing With Me Heart, released in the Autumn 1992.
She is still at the first position with The Music Is Moving when Media Records released a new single of 49ers The Message which followed the others in success. In December she toured Japan with Mig and Cappella (both artists from Media Records) for a big media event. Then, a new production with Fargetta. This time she made new an old record by John Miels Music! Her powerful voice gave a different interpretation to this classic, giving the new generations the possibility to know it, love it and dance to it.
February 1993, the new single Everything got to the #1 position in 120 Italian radios and scheduled to be released by London Records. Within the first week of may, that got right away in the record mirror club chart at #5.
July 1993: Keep Your Love, a single that had very good response by the audience all over Europe. October 1994: The single Rocking My Body followed the bright walk of success like the previous ones. March 1997: The single Baby, I'm Yours was released, followed by another single called I Got The Music.
The 49ers hoped that the powerful Let The Sun Shine In would bring them more success. This track had strong vocals and was very suitable for the clubs.But it probably did not get the success expected, since afterwards, everything became very quiet around 49ers. The Media records team were busy with other productions.
2002 : on October 28th, a new single was released in Italy. Called My Heart, it included the B-side (Escape) My Heart.
2010 : in June, ZYX release some 2010 remixes of 49ers's hits Touch Me and I Got It. In November, after almost 10 years of silence, 49ers were back with an single reminding of electro/retro style of Yolanda Be Cool & DCUP We No Speak Americano. It sampled the theme and voice of Charlie Chaplin's singing Je cherche aprčs Titine in his movie "Modern Times" in 1936.
2013 : a new 49ers single entitled Shine on in love was released, feautring Cheryl Porter.

4ward is a studio project of Axel Breitung. It is not known how many songs were actually recorded, but 3 of them were released on compilation only.
Arabian Holiday used the melody of Osmania's Face Of A Stranger combined on a slower, euro-reggae rhythm with an Arabian flavor. Train To Mandalay mixed oriental sounds with a powerful eurodance melody which should sound familiar to Axel Breitung productions fans. Voice Of Time reminded of the early DJ Bobo releases.

The project is produced by Thomas Detert und Mike Griesheimer, the same producers who were behind Activate some years ago. They had also produced projects such as Dyno (There Is Progress), A-Trax (Sweet Lullaby), and Boys On 33 (Slam The Jam).
The members are Diablo (real name : Rene), Karin and Mandy. At first they had some problems due to their conspicuous name. "In the beginning some record shops and radio stations didn't want to sell and play our records. But nowadays people have noticed that our music doesn't concern of satanism. We are just party devils", Diablo tells 'The main idea was that we wanted to come up with something new and special. We watched different bands and their live shows. There were only happy and smiling people. We wanted to put a devil to a stage and do a dark show. That's why 666 was good name for us", Diablo explains. Diablo was actually not the real voice, he only lipsynced on stage.
Their music, defined as progressive house, uses two languages : English and Spanish. 'Spanish is erotic, powerful, aggressive and little bit dark' Diablo says. Their first single was nothing else than a cover of Activate's Alarma, combined with a sample of No Good (Start The Dance) by The Prodigy. It had a great success all over Europe. The following singles, Diablo and Amokk, had the same success. Then their first album, entitled Paradoxx, was released.
The newest single Bomba! was released during the Summer 1999, followed by The Demon and more recently D.E.V.I.L., announcing a new album. 'The familiar 666 style continues. We are working with a new album and I think it will be released in the end of the year', Diablo tells.
2000 : 666's following single was entitled Dance 2 Disco, reminding a little bit of the Vengaboys (according to rumors, the chorus was sampled on a verse of Pet Shop Boys - Can You Forgive Her). They also had recently relesed their second album, Who's Afraid Of, in the same familiar 666 style. Then came the singles Salute (released not confirmed) and more recently Supa Dupa Fly (on November 12th 2001).
