All Right (24th Nov 2015)
Nathalie Aarts was born and lived for 21 years in Breda (Holland). During this period her interest for music developed and she studied piano, guitar and, subsequently, singing.
In 1984 she was the protagonist of the film Picking Up The Pieces, which toured all major European film festivals and won several awards. In 1989 she got a jazz dance teacher diploma and in 1991 she decided to leave both Holland and her group, The Fuse, of which she had been the singer for 6 years. Having arrived in Italy she started working with the La Bionda brothers and as vocalist for a few advertising jingles. In December 1991 her work with the brothers resulted in her first record as solo artist, a cover of a song by Lisa Stansfield titled Change.
In the following years Nathalie studied at the Civic Jazz School of Franco Cerri and Enrico Intra, working as backing vocalist for Gianna Nannini on the album “Per Forza e Per Amore” (Festivalbar Verbania 1993), Adriano Celentano and the English group Right Said Fred (Roxy Bar) but also with various musicians and producers as author and as vocalist in various musical projects (WASP, Daffodil...). She also performed with project 2 Cowboys during their TV appearances.
A meeting with the well-known producers Molella, Phil Jay, Roby Santini, Gianni Fontana and Argentinian singer German Leguizamon, led to the creation of dance music project The Soundlovers. During more than 10 years and 15 singles, she scored many hits, taking part in major musical shows and radio and television programs.
In July 2001 she started singing in the Nat’s Band with four new musicians and in October she joined one of the best-known Gospel groups, the No One Else, with which she has been taking part in several concerts in many big theatres and gospel festivals, both in Italy and abroad. She also contributed to the project Larabelle. You might not always be able to recognise Nathalie in the various video clips that were produced, that is because she has always chosen not to be identified, to enable her to continue interpreting all her other music projects.
In August 2006, after a 2-year break, 2 new Soundlovers songs were published, still featuring Nathalie : Can’t Stop Dancing and I’m Not Scared.
Nathalie has been working together with Kim Lukas since 1999 for various promotions all over the world and with Neja as part of the project Girls Party, the two have become friends, also because of the fact that they have often been mistaken one for the other, so much so that sometimes they are given back the wrong passports at customs. The two have therefore had the idea of singing like "two real sisters"…
2007 : Nathalie and Kim Lukas released their first single Change The World under Ritmica Records. Nathalie was also featured by Stefy NRG on the track Music Is My Life. Meanwhile, Nathalie was performing, singing cover versions of various genres, from blues, to rock, funky and revival in some venues in and around Milan.
2008 : The Soundlovers and Nathalie were back with a new single entitled My Body And My Soul.
2010 : Nathalie, Kim Lukas, Neja, Be Angel, Viviana Presutti (Da Blitz), Ryan Paris, P.Lion, Luca Zeta and Miko Mission joined to form the charity project Bandance. The single Guiding Star (an homage to Michael Jackson) will be released on June 25th. All incomes will go to San Paolo Hospital in Mailand
2011 : Nathalie teamed with Kim Lukas and producer Graziano Pegoraro (T42, Ava & Stone, Mato Grosso) for a single entitled Breathe Again.
2016 : she did vocals on Alain Ducroix & Michael Sax's single Move On.
2018 : Nathalie was featured by DJ Jump on his single Memories

Musical team : Peter Gillis, Jacques Bultinck, Cedric Murril
AB Logic is a European dance music duo made up of singer Marianne Festraets and American rapper K-Swing (Cedric Murril). Marianne Festraets took many years of classical ballet lessons. She also contributed to the project The Dinky Toys, and did backing vocals for Isabelle A. The group was masterminded by Belgian producers Jacko Bultinck and Peter Gillis. Phil Wilde also took part to the project.
In 1991, Marianne Festraets was asked to go to an audition at Top Studio in Ghent (Belgium). She had to sing a dance track called The Hitman, and was chosen on the spot among several singers to record it and be a part of the project, together with K-Swing. Peter Gillis and Jacko Bultinck took the song to the MIDEM in Cannes (France). Ronald Van Huffel came up with the name AB Logic to promote it, and in no time they got signed at Warner East-West records in London! From that moment on, everything went very fast! In one month, they had to come up with a full album, which was the condition for the record company to release the single in the USA. And so AB Logic went on promo tour in the UK in June 1992. One day, an American DJ played The Hitman in a club, the song became an instant success.
Their second single AB Logic was quite successful, it peaked #1 in Israel for 3 weeks. Then their album was released.
Their last single to be released was a very nice eurodance track called Real World. It is not included in the album. It was written by Peter Gillis, Jacques Bultinck and Cedric Murril, recorded at Top Studio in Gent (Belgium).
Another single was confidentially released in 1996. Entitled Welcome To My Heart, it was written by Marianne Festraets, Peter Gillis et Cedric Murrill, produced by Peter Gillis, co-produced par Marianne Festraets. The single was published under BMG Ariola Belgium / Wax World USA import.
Apart from their first releases there was also a medley entitled This Is AB Logic, mixed by Les Massengale and Mark Roberts, featured on a compilation named Ultimix 47 (Ultimix Records).
2003 : Peter Gillis and Jacques Bultinck tried to relaunch the Paradisio project, but the single did not have the success expected.
2007 : Marianne Festraets with Alain Vande Putte was busy writing songs from Ronald Van Huffel. She started to take extreme vocal classes at ESPAVO Vocal Coaching in Mechelen.
2009 : Marianne is writing songs together with Ken Marcelis, a long time friend.

Members : Abigail (singer), Ian Anthony Stephens (producer, arrangements,music)
Abigail Zsiga started her carreer as vocalist for the Love Decade project. With them she recorded one album entitled Decadance.
As a teenager, Abigail enjoyed her first UK chart hit in 1992 when I Feel You hit n°33 on the UK National Singles Chart. She then hit n°1 on the UK Hi-NRG Club Chart with her second single Could It Be Magic. Her third single, a dance version of KD Lang's Constant Craving brought her acclaim in 10 countries, particularly the US where it spent an amazing 19 weeks at n°1 on DMA's Hi-NRG Club Chart. Abigail's fourth single Smells Like Teen Spirit entered the UK National Singles Chart at n°29. Her fifth single - Don't You Wanna Know was featured on Interhit 's massive-selling DMA Dance Vol. 1: Eurodance in 1995.
Following the success of her singles, the artist's first album - FeelGood - saw release in 33 countries. Several dance music awards anda few years of solid touring followed until Abigail decided to take sometime off to have her first child, Ilana.
In 1998, Abigail signed with Interhit Records and Let The Joy Rise, with a more mature sound, represented an exciting and new direction for her. Let The Joy Rise was co-written by Janice Robinson of Livin' Joy (Dreamer) and produced by Thunderpuss 2000 (Barry Harris and Chris Cox). It was described as "an uplifting dance anthem packed with emotional vocals and backed by Thunderpuss 2000's powerful signature sound". It is caused a stir in New York & L.A. clubs from a handful of test pressings and Abigail toured touring the U.S. clubs this year in support of this single. An album entitled Nightmoves seemed to have been planned for December 25th 1999 but apparently was never released.
2000 : She was also featured on G & O Project's song Hardworkin' and Lucas' Got To Have Your Love. Both were included on a UK promo sampler called Deluxe Audio Presents: Dig The New Breed. She was signed to Strictly Rhythm Records/Groovilicious and worked with Thunderpuss again to created If It Don't Fit, which was an instant club hit and went #1 in Billboard Club Play Charts.
2001 : Abigail released a single she co-wrote with J. Carrano : You Set Me Free.
2003 : Abigail signed with an independant label, Eden Music (according to other sources, Eden Music was her own production company). She released a new single called Falling, and she declared she was preparing her new album. 5 tracks were already completed.
2004 : Abigail's new album was entitled Home... Again and the release was planned on August. All the tracks were slow, acoustic tracks. Abigail seems to have definitively turned the eurodance page...
2006 : Abigail took part as vocalist and co-writer to 10 Monkeys's single Lay Down.
2009 : she was featured on the track Forever Young (a cover of Alphaville's hit), on DJ Bill Bennett's first album Big Muscle Of The Rhythm. Abigail toured in early 2009 with a new line-up, new songs and a very new sound.
2010 : Be Still My Soul was the tile of Abigail's new full-length acoustic CD, recorded in San Diego and planned for a mid-November release. She also recorded a new dance track in collaboration with The Perry Twins entitled We’ll Never Know.

Nana Kwame Abrokwa was born on October 5th, 1969 in Accra (Ghana). At the age of 10, he came to Germany with his mother, brothers and sisters. Music was his hobby since his tender years, and when he finished school, he started a DJ carreer. He played at a lot of places and got kind of famous. He also appeared in two German movies. Then he met Toni Cottura. And they both understood that, one day, they would work together. At this time, Toni was successful with Fun Factory and producing great hits for famous acts like Marky Mark, the Backstreet Boys or N'Sync. In 1997, Toni Cottura left the Fun Factory with his partner Bülent Aris, and it was finally time for them to work together with Nana.
Nana started rapping under the name of MC Africa True (or shortly : True). He contributed to the eurodance group Darkness, with the single In My Dreams in 1995. The music was programmed and arranged by Bülent. He also co-produced some songs for DJ David Fascher (such as Make The Crowd Go Wild). Legend says that he did not like eurodance style, so he left Darkness afterwards.
Nana's first solo single Darkman was released in late 1996. The song was a big success in Europe, especially in Germany, Austria, Switzerland & the Benelux. Europe discovered a new musical style : European rap & hip hop. The real breakthrough for Nana came with the next single, Lonely. Featuring vocals by Alexandra Prince, it was a super-hit of 1997 Europe-wide, staying # 1 in Germany over 1 month. It entered the top 5 on most European charts. Then followed the singles Let It Rain (written for his Mum who passed away from cancer 10 years before), He's Comin' and Too Much Heaven from his debut album Nana - The Album. They all entered the top10 in Germany. The album featured many artists like Jan VD Toorn, Jonestown, Pappa Bear (Daisy Dee's brother), the vocalist Mazaya, Alex Prince as previously mentioned, as well as a lot of other Booya Family members.
In May 1998, his second album was out, entitled Father. Nana adopted a new style : R&B/Rap, with slower songs and more mature lyrics. He released the songs Remember The Time, Dreams (reminding a lot of the previous hit Lonely) and Father from that album, and they all scored big in the charts.
Nana first single from the 3rd album, I Wanna Fly (Like An Eagle) was released in November 1999 and it was a ballad about freedom. Then there was a big break and the planned third album was canceled, while Viva TV had already played samples from some tracks of that album during a one-hour Nana-special broadcast. Nana had worked hard and this was planned to be a big release, and a defenite hit in the charts again. Songs remained locked in the booya-bass. I Wanna Fly was a flop and after that, the Booya Family split up. Bülo couldn't release this album due to copyright problems, since all the producers and collaborators who had worked on the album had left. Nana recorded another album in the Booya studios. But since the Booya era was really over and the music world had changed a lot, this was not released the album as well. Nana finally left Booya.
In 2001, Nana did a comeback, this time rapping in German on the single Du Wirst Sehen (You will see). It was a great hit on the German club scene, but far away from the old Darkman-days. He started working on the new album which was going to be named Global Playa and would be in both English and German. But it was also cancelled.
2004 : rumors according to which Nana was working hard to get back on the scene were true. Nana released his new single Butterfly/Ride With Me, which was his first single from the new album (entitled All Doors In Flight No.7) that was released in July 2004.
2009 : Nana's new album was entitled Stand Up. It contained 18 tracks.
2014 : Nana cotributed to a collective single with DesiSlava and Pappa Bear, Cotton Candy.
2017 : Nana released a 2k17 version of his song Remember The Time on August 4th, along with a new video. Then came Go Away featuring Manuellsen & Vessy. Both songs were included on his album #BetweenLuciferAndGod, out on November. Album included collaborations with eurodance big names Thea Austin and Ice MC.

She also recorded about 20 solo singles. For instance she appeared on Abigail's single If It Don't Fit as lead background vocalist
The single sounded a little like a Robyx track. It was composed by Michael Lloyd, Tommy Oliver and Jim Ervin, published under Scorpio and Hot tracks in France. 6 mixes were made for this track, all of them are very hard to find : a Heat Mix radio, an AP Mix Radio, a Heat mix, an AP Mix, a USA mix, and an Original mix.
It was used as intro track for the TV series Acapulco Heat.

Acropolis is a Russian project featuring Grigory Bunkov, Vladislav Levchenko and the vocalist Emma Novikova. They were based in Ekaterinburg. They released 3 albums. The first one, released in 1995, was called Technotango, and it was a classic eurodance album. The second album Koma was an mix of eurodance and hardcore, and the last one History had turned into progressive house (in a style reminding Brooklyn Bounce or Red 5).
It all started back in 1990 when Grigory Bunkov decided to create a pop-music project, but with real and serious texts. He liked progressive electronic music but also had contacts with rock bands from Sverdlovsk. He met the DJ Vladislav Levchenko (who had already created some tracks for different music groups). Together they recorded 3 songs in Techno, but they did not have any success. However they continued their collaboration, and in 1993 they were joined by Emma Novikova. In this time eurodance was beginning to be popular in Russia.
First album was recorded in 27 days & nights only during the year 1993. But it was finally released in only in 1995, and had great success in discos in Ekaterinburg (Sverdlovsk).
In the middle of 1995 they started to work on their second album Koma. But it was only in Autumn 1996 that they finally started the recording of new songs in Ekaterinburg's studio "Tutti record". Koma took auditory by surprise, since they were not ready to welcome dance music with serious texts. Anyway some tracks became hits in Russian housemusic clubs.
Third album History was also recorded on Tutti Records and completed in April 1998. Some tracks had pop-house influence but elements of eurodance were also included. They also shot their first video, for the song History. The CD was available in shops only in February 1999.
A 4th album called Cyngalai was started, but unfortuntaly it was never released. Some tracks were recorded in 2000, such as I Love When You...
Vlad Levchenko has since left the band and he started a new project with the singer Olga Lebedeva from Ekaterinburg. The style was hard rock music with dance motives.

Acting Lovers is a project directly inspired from E-rotic's musical and graphical universe, created in 2005 by producer Patrick Thomson and songwriter Jack Summers.
Shortly after, Patrick started to compose the tracks for the first album. Together with Jack he wrote the first lyrics. In February 2008, they finally found their vocalist : Miss Madison. "At that moment noone ever thought about the male parts of the songs, until Danny Ciccone grabbed the mic and started to rap the male parts of our song Tonight", they explain.
2007 : the single Flying Away was released, as limited promo only. The first album Hot was planned for release around September, but nothing came out.
2009 : their first single In Light And Darkness, recorded in Basement Sound Studio in Weiden, was released in January. On month later, it entered the Euro-HiNRG Charts. At the moment Patrick and Danny are working hard re-recording the first album which will be probably released in April. Their new single is entitled Tonight, release date is not known yet.

Let The Rhythm Take Control (1994)
Save Me (1994)
Save Me (Megamix) (1994)
The project was established in the year 1993 on a Sunday by 4 German producers and songwriters who called themselves the 'A-TEAM' : Thomas Detert, Mike Griesheimer, Nicole Wetzel and Manfred Poppe.
The group is a trio : 2 rappers (Mike and Thomas themselves) and several female singers : Nicole Wetzel, Rachel Rack, Marjana "Nanni" Zagar, Helen Smith.
Their first single to be released was Let The Rhythm Take Control in 1994. It featured the voice of Nicole Wetzel. On the CD maxi sleeve one could read that it was produced by Manfred Poppe and the A-Team. Actually he was only co-author. After the release of this single Manfred Poppe left Activate to produce the project X-Fade (which released the eurodance single Give Me More Of Your Love which unfortunately did not had any success). Nicole also left the project for personal reasons, and Andreas Hoetter and Alexander Stiepler became co-producers of Activate.
The second single was entitled Beat Of The Drum. Activate had to look out for a new vocalist, which became Rachel Rack. She did all the vocals for the album and they had to re-record Let The Rhythm Take Control once again.
The first and only album Visions was released a first time. Then came Save Me in 1994 too (along with the Megamix). Rachel Rack who has performed at the Starlight Express in Bochum returned to LA after the recordings in 1994. So once again they had to look out for a new singer and it became Nanni Zagar. She was Activate's frontgirl 'till the end of the project and she's the girl acting with Mike and Thomas in the Save Me video. As Save Me became a great hit, the album was just re-released with a new sleeve design, showing Nanni, Mike and Thomas.
Then followed in 1995 the hits I Say What I Want and Tell Me (with bonustrack Daydreamer). The track Rhythm And Drums was actually never released as single.
In the whole, Activate sold 400.000 units and had been on tour with all the big names of that period like Masterboy, DJ Bobo, Twenty 4 Seven, Dr. Alban... In the end of 1995, Mike and Thomas decided to start their own company "Activate music productions" and "Activate music publishing". Then they decided to give up Activate and to establish the 666 project. The debut-single from 666 Alarma was a remake of the Activate-song with the same name.
Another single was released, entitled Fall In Love With You. It was released by the records company Dance Street without even asking the original perfomers and songwriters. It was written/produced by Hoetter & Stiepel. The track was not featured in the album. The single featured the voice of Helen Smith aka Kristin and it flopped.
2005 : following 666's decrease of popularity, 666 team created a new project called Vinylshakers.
Andreas Hoetter is still working in the music business, but Alexander Stiepel got lost by his former collegues.
2012 : Activate plan to release a digital Lost & Found EP on June 1st with 3 previously unreleased tracks : Heart (Gimme More), Mister Moon and Mister Sun, and Dial My Number. They also included the rare 1996 version of Let The Rhythm Take Control, with original vocals from Nicole Wetzel and a new rap by MC Eduardo
2016 : Activate were back with a brand new single entitled Spotlight, a real classic eurodance song.

René has been making music since he was 6 years old. When he became 18, he started performing in clubs, rapping his lyrics on different types of music. "I was just trying to invent some new styles" he explains. Some of his live performances were taped by the DJs. This is how Manuel Ramon, an Italian producer living in Germany happened to hear on of these the tapes and was interested. René and him met and recorded some demo’s. But they never made it to the real deal like a CD or maxisingle. But Manuel Ramon knew another producer called Mario Aldini who needed a rapper in a project. That’s how René became Priority's rapper.
Then he recorded one other song with Mario Aldini, entitled was called OK Corral by Think Twice. He then started to work with Luc Rigaux. They collaborated during 3 years. They made a Sister Sledge megamix together. René also did some rapping on Sister Sledge and for other projects.
Nowadays, René is working as a manager in HVAC business. Since 4 years he quitted being a DJ and started his own recording studio.

Aikakone (means time machine in Finnish) is a dance/pop project with 4 members : Sani, Vera, Alex and Maki.
Sani (real name : Saija Aartela) , the main female vocalist, was born June 8th, 1971. She has brown hair and green eyes. Vera (background vocalist, lyrics writer), was born in October 1971. She attended the University of Jyväskylä. She is blong-haired. Alex (musician, background vocalist, English lyrics writer). Alex is the male singer. His role as a singer diminished over time as he got more involved into the instrumental music aspect of the band. He was born in San Jose, Costa Rica on the 13th of July and speaks Spanish fluently : he wrote the song El Sol from the Maa album. Maki is the composer and producer of the group. He is no newcomer in the music business, since he had already produced many groups before. He plays the guitar.
They released 3 albums in Finnish language : Tähtikaaren Taa in 1995, Toiseen Maailmaan in 1996 and Maa in 1998.
Their music was simply wonderful with intelligent lyrics and superb vocal harmonies. The only thing that prevented Aikakone from huge international success was that they sang in their native language of Finnish. Later, they changed their name to Aika to reflect the language change from Finnish to English. Under this new name, they released 2 other albums : Time (A special internet-only EP, 1997) and Hear Me Now (2001).
2002 : Aika took par to the Eurovision song contest.
In 2003 they released a best-of album entitled Pophitit 1995-2003.
2008 : Sani competed to represent Finland at Eurovision Song Contest.
2011 : Aikakone are currently working in studio on their new album.
2015 : in May, Aikakone released a new single entitled Liian vanha. In October, their new album 2.0 was out.

Burnell Keith Herring JR was born on 15th of July 1969 in Chicago. His father Burnell Keith Herring Sr was working in the army so they travelled a lot. His mother is called Cornelia. She spent the second half of his childhood in Arkansas, then, as AK was 13 years old, his family moved to Frankfurt. At the age of 15, he began to dance. He also learned viola, violin, cello, and contra bass, and also got involved in his school's Concert Orchestra. Then he was promoted to the Symphony Orchestra within six months, which got him 1st and 2nd chair honors, and participated in three state competition's.
His first pseudonym was BK, but people called him 'Burger King' or 'British Knights' so he changed the first letter and added 'Swift' because it sounded good. Another explanation of his name can be found on his official website : an acronym meaning Asiatic Knowledge Swinging With Incredible Force Totally.
In 1983 (years after his introduction to the hip-hop culture) AK got involved with a Frankfurt based breakdance group called Floor Masters, learned the art of DJing, and continued to perfect his rapping and writing skills.
Back in the US, he entered the army but he did not stay very long because he could not stand the officers' racism and absurd disciplin. In 1990 he left the army and works as a DJ and a break-dancer. Then came 2 years of misery : he divorced from his wife, lost his job and becam homeless. He has a son also called AK, who lives with his mother in Germany.
After coming a long way, he began a score of releases, beginning with Underground Prophet, under the name of True Minds feat. B.K. Swift in 1991. Then he took part to the Cella Dwellas group as rapper and co-producer in 1993. From this collaboration, 2 singles were released : Rugged Discipline and Hip-Hop Hurra Rap Gegen Rechts. Still in 1993, his voice was featured by Jazz Con Bazz for the track Evolution Of A Mindflow.
Then AK was noticed by the producer Mike Staab, and became Magic Affair's rapper between 1994 and February 1995. The first time he saw Franca Morgano his partner, he found her so tiny (AK is 1,83 m tall), but was very impressed by the force of her voice. The cohabitation between the 2 members of the group was not always easy : AK was shocked by the way Franca was dressed on the scene, and he found her too nervous. They argued so much that AK left the band, but the rapper who replaced him didn't fit so finally he came back.
In 1996, after he was finally fired from Magic Affair, AK released a single Shake That Ass with the group C-Block.
Then he released with Franca Morgano a cover of Chic's song Good Times under the name of Blaxone. He signed under the Booya Records label and did a rap on Toni Cottura's Party Boom single, after that he had hits with his own project A.K. S.W.I.F.T. In spite of irregular success, AK kept on releasing singles. After Light In Me, he released In The Game. The song featured Will Williams, it was composed and produced by Bülent Aris, Tony Cottura and co-produced by Daisy Dee. The video was shot in Miami, and reached Top 40. AK also did a debut in Germany's hit movie 14 tage lebenslanglich.
A.K also participated in the charitable Big Basketball Challenge with stars like Backstreet Boys, N'Sync, DJ Bobo, Masterboy, and Nana. Which all of the proceeds went to a cancer research fund for children, the event was organised by Hand-in-Hand concept. Due to differences between AK and Booya-Music, AK decided to go his seperate way.
Later in 1997 AK produced a Breakbeat track for the inline skater Dirk Auer to celebrate his World Record. The song was called Pick Up The Speed , the project name was Inline featuring rapper Mad Flava.
In 1998 AK teamed up with Rico Sparx, Alley Cat, and Greg MCcoy, the result was entitled The Professionnal (featuring Will Williams, Leidra Jones and Kosta Wilson as vocalists). He also recorded So In Love With You which was never released. He did a guest rap appearance on Playstations' single Bust-A-Groove, and was featured by Cloud 9 on the single You Spin Me Round.
In 1999 AK came back to Booya and recorded the track It's On (with Mazaya feat. Craig Smart), which reached # 75 on the German charts. Then a track called Do U Wanna Die was scheduled to be released in mid-May 2000.
2001 : AK has signed a deal with In-Motion AG record label Bookmark and released You Know The Names vs. s.Oliver BBL Allstars (Basketball Bundesliga) on March 5, 2001. This song is the official Hymn for the Basketball Bundesliga. His first album was planned for the Autumn 2001 but it was never released.
2003 : A.K.did a comeback in June, with the single Here We Come, that he co-produced with Paul Schulte. This track was released under Bellaphon Records, for the European NFL team Frankfurt Galaxy (who became World Bowl Champions shortly afterwards), featuring raps from A.K and team member Calvin Spears, with support vocals from Preshuz T, Chris Pointer and The Galaxy Cheerleaders. AK also appeared on the track Who's Next Large's debut album Larger Than Life, the song Oh No from the German rapper Big 6 debut album, and two songs on Simon Collins (Phil Collins' son) album.
2004 : in the beginning of the year, AK created his own label, called Hoodkatz. He started working with his former collaborators Danny Sullivan and Martin Prodwhiz again. The result of their efforts was the single Pussycat, released during the summer. The solo album should be soon released and the name is going to be 13.
May 29th, A.K. performed in Saarbrücken with the group Large for the discotheque Kufa birthday party. October 29th, he performed his soon to be released single I Growl (Step Back) with his new DJ "Deviate" at the discotheque Nachtsicht in Heidelberg. It is not clear wether the single was finally released or not.
AK'd rather be considered as a poet than a rapper. He likes basketball, body-building and football. Is also a big movie fan with over 1000 movies in his private collection. He sends money each month to his family who stayed in the US. He describes himself as a complicated man. He usually wears sneakers and clothes designed by Karl Kani (an American streetwear designer). He likes chinese food. His favourite artists are Harrison Ford and Arnold Schwarzenegger. He hates George Bush. He listens to many hard-rock groups. He has a son called Anthony Joshua.
AK's future plans are to produce other artists, and to become an actor.
2005 : AK Swift and DJ Deviate formed a team called the Trak Predatorz, DJing in the disco Funkadelik in Frankfurt one Wednesday and one Friday a month.
2007 : AK produced and performed 2 songs : the single I Growl (Step Back), featuring Iz, and the single I Wanna Pusssycat featuring My Linh, for the German movie Madonnas (aka "Madonnen"). He toured with Ayman, and the Eastside Famlee, in Dormagen (Germany).
2008 : Magic Affair got back together and released a remix of Omen III under label Balloon Records in Austria, and did a tour there to promote it. AK also started his commercial acting debut for Lindy Electronics (a new cable company), and Avia (Fuel resource), unfortunately he had no spoken parts.
2009 : AK and Franca were asked to perform at the RTL Ultimative Chartshow in Köln (Germany). While working on the new Magic Affair album, AK is also producing his A.K.-S.W.I.F.T. album titled Chronicles of a Ghetto Ninja. He is als the chairman of his own productions KNIGHTZ INC., producing artists in many styles such as Hip-Hop, R&B, Pop, Latino, and House.
2014 : AK teamed with Struggle da Preacher and Young Noble to release single 365 Grind
2015 : he released a second hip hop single with Struggle da Preacher entitled Still...
2016 : AK Swift announced that he was back with a new single called Reigning Day, planned for March and featuring Peabo, but it seems that it was finally not released. An EP should have followed in May 2016. He is also producing a new dance act together with producer Bernd Waldstädt. He appeared in a few small roles in a couple of independent films. He also became a columnist for Mittelpunkt-Zeitung, interviewing music artists for his column Rise of the 90’s
2017 : AK Swift teamed with Lorenza Maluku to create new dance project M.A. (Mystic Arts). AK and Janina were featured on Philipp Tesarek's project J.O.Y.C.E. Let The Rhythm Take Control, a real eurodance song.

Producer & Rapper : Tony Alexander Entesarian (aka Alex)
Vocalists : Marwa Chebil, William Sandberg, Mikael Säfvestad, Pernilla Eriksson, Ellen Persson, Amelie Lundqvist.
Already at the age of 7, Alex became fascinated when his older sister listened to different eurodance artists. As it was in the beginning of the 90's the eurodance was pretty mainstream among the teenagers.
At the end of the 90's Alex became stuck in the eurodance genre and started producing his own stuff. It wasn't until the year 2004 he released his first official record at his own record label where he and Basshunter released each own record. The very first single Don't Need Your Love was released in 2004. It featured vocals by Pernilla Eriksson.
Later in 2005 Alex met Marwa Chebil, who just had competed in Idol 2004 in Sweden. He asked her to do backvocals in his upcoming album (Past, Present & Future). Alex chose to produce his new album with old studio equipment back from the 90's to get the real eurodance nostalgie feeling.
2006 : their first video I'm Gonna Make You Mine got released during the summer, together with the album. Right now they are doing gigs in Sweden.
2007 : Alex started recording his upcoming album in the studio, the single (Lose Control) got released the same year.
2008 : Alex wanted to release a new up-to-date sound album to get higher publicity in Sweden, so he started to produce house music. The single (Put Your Hands Up) got released in December.
2009 : Fans complained about the new style and Alex didn’t feel comfortable with the new sounds either so he started to re-record new songs with the classic 90’s style again. In October 31th he releases the single Moonlight which was inspired from the Twilight saga movies. The single will only be released digitally on restricted stores, mostly US.
On 4th of December he released his new album Self Control. For the first time, it was distributed internationally both on CD and digital. This was 3 years of hard studio work and Alex has never put as much effort before as on this album.
2010 : Alex recorded a videoclip for his single Moonlight.
2011 : Alex's next single will be entitled I Wanna Feel Your Love. In October, the title of the next single was revealed : Paranormal Rhythm, still featuring Marwa.

Alexia was born Alessia Aquilani on the 19th of May 1967 in La Spezia. Since she was a child she had an irresistible attraction to music. When she was 7 years old she began studying piano and voice at school. Her family, noticing at such an early age her singing and performing talents, decided to point her in the direction of a musical career. It was during this time she won more than 50 song-contests achieving the title of 'Little wonder'. When Alexia was twelve she studied dance. In the meantime Alexia kept on doing shows in clubs, becoming familiar with the stage and live crowds.
When she was a teen she joined a very famous pop group in La Spezia, called 'I Ragazzi Migliarina'. After finishing school she started working as a full-time singer, doing many shows during the summer. During one of these shows she was contacted by a manager of a group, working in disco's, and he asked Alexia to be their lead singer. This was the start of her professional career in the clubs, without giving up her studies of opera and classical music. Alexia also founded her own group called 'Brother Machine'.
This was the time when Alexia first met Robert Zanetti (her producer, better known as Robyx). Roberto's sister Viviana had told him about Alexia as she heard her singing in a club with withher band. He came to listen for himself and approched her, asking if she would like to go to the studio for an audition. So in 1989-1990 Alexia entered the DWA team, at first as a studio vocalist. She did vocals on Lita Beck - It's Alright and on Two For Love Hold Me. She co-wrote lyrics of Wilson Ferguson - Sometimes with Robyx.
In 1991 Roberto asked Alexia to take part in the Ice MC project. She did all the vocals on his album Ice'n Green. In 1992, she released as single under the name Alexia Haslip entitled Take Care Of Your Life, composed by Giuseppe Cominotti, released under label Future Rhythm.
In 1993/1994, the great success came and Alexia and Ice MC did shows all around the world. Meanwhile, she gave her voice to many other DWA products : Alexia Cooper, Digilove, Fourteen14, Galactica, Gray Neve, KU, Due... She also sang the background vocals of DoubleYou's hit Please Don't Go, and two songs on his Blue Album.
In 1995 Alexia released her first solo-single (also featuring Double You), called Me And You. This single was released in August and just a few days from its release, it made waves everywhere reaching the top spot in Italy and in Spain. 1995 was also a very tragic year for Alexia, since she lost her dad Agostino.
After that great eurotracks followed, like Summer Is Crazy (released in May 1996, with a remixes CD released in August, #31 in France, #36 in Austria, and #25 in Switzerland) and Number One (#36 in France).
In 1997 her album Fan Club was released, one of the best Eurodance albums of the year. The album also was released in America, with a different title: Fun Club. With the euro reggae track Uh La La La Alexia had her biggest hit all over Europe, although it took almost a year of airplay. In several countries this track was released two times. First in 1997, and later in 1998 again. It ranked #10 in the UK, #13 in France, #16 in Switzerland, #15 in the Netherlands, #6 in Austria, #5 in Sweden and #7 in Israel. With this track it seemed that Alexia had said goodbye to eurodance, because the follow-up Gimme Love (#16 in Israel, #36 in Sweden and # 17 in the UK) almost was a copy of Uh La La La.
The second album was also a disappointment for Euro fans since it was filled with ballads and euro reggae. Only The Music I Like was a good old eurodance song. It song was released as the follow-up to Gimme Love with some terrible remixes (it appeared on the soundtrack of the popular TV-serie 'Baywatch'). It reached #22 in Israel and #34 in UK. In 1997 a single entitled Hold On was released, but only in Brazil. It's a very hard-to-find item...
Alexia's first single of her third album was called Goodbye. It was released on the 8th of July in Italy. Goodbye was made in the 'Alexia-style', but is more pop than dance with less electronic instruments and some guitars on it. The sound has a '70/80's feel to it with a catchy chorus and an intense melody. The Italian musician Marco Canepa was involved in this project by Robyx for the musical arrangements. The single was # 3 in Israel.
Alexia's third album Happy was released at the end of August. It contained 12 songs that have a pinch of each style of music, from dance to R&B, from pop to sweet ballads. According to DWA, each track on the album was so good, that each one was a possible single. Among the tracks were Goodbye, Happy, Change Your Life, Baby Baby Baby, Let The Music Play and Te Amo.
Alexia will present the new live show which consist in herself performing live + his guitarist Paolo Mirabelli + 1 DJ doing tricks with his Technics turntable (his name is Theo) while Alexia sings accappella... Alexia sings everything on any music played by DJ Teo.
The latest single released by Alexia with Robyx entitled Ti Amo Ti Amo, and it peaked #12 in the Italian charts. After the release of her album The Hits in June 2000, Alexia left her producer Robyx to sign under Sony. She said that she came to the moment where she wanted to show her complete talent. On October 19th, 2000 the new single Non Ti Dimenticherò featuring Gianni Morandi was released in Italy only. The next single to be released was planned to be Baby Baby Baby from the latest album The Hits, with no precise date.
2001 : Alexia released her new single Money Honey which was followed by a new album entitled Mad For Music already out in Italy. She started a live tour in Italy (first appearance in Rome on the 15th of July) and appeared at Festivalbar on the 3rd and the 10th of July. Money Honey peaked # 4 in Israel's Dance Chart.
The following single was Summerlovers, which was written by Alexia and M. Marcolini, remixed by Vanni J.
2002 : Alexia's brand new single is Dimme Como (Don't You Know), a track totally sung in Italian. It was released on the 6th of March, from the forthcoming album simply entitled Alexia. It was quite succesful in Italy, reaching #4 in the charts. This album was planned for the 8th of March, it contained 9 Italian songs and only one it English. Sad news for all eurodance lovers : her style will now be soul-related.
On the 5th of March, Alexia took part to the San Remo festival (broadcasted on Rai Uno), the biggest national Italian song contest. Her song reached #2...
Alexia's next single was Non Lasciarmi Mai, and it was played a lot on the Italian radio stations. The next one was be entitled Don't You Know (the English version of Dimmi Come) and it was released in the 25th of June... in France included (where it was not very succesful, though appearing in the local charts at #70). Afterwards Alexia is released the English version of her album Alexia... Her tour started in Iatly on the 10th of July.
Alexia was nominated to the "Italian Music Awards" (broadcasted on the Rai 2 on the 2nd December). Her next single to be released in Italy was entitled Hasta La Vista.
2003 : Alexia released a brand new album called Il Cuore A Modo Mio. In March she won the Champion award at 2003 San Remo festival. Her single Per Dire Di No peaked #11 in the Italian charts.
In May she released her new single, Egoista. She also did a tour in Italy. In September she sung a duo entitled Nel Blu Dipinto Di Blu, with opera singer Andrea Bocelli at the Auditorium of Roma.
2004 : after taking a little break to rest from the year 2003 which was very intense to her, Alexia came back in studio to record a new album. She collaborated with the producers Louis Biancaniello and Sam Watters (known for producing hits for pop stars such as Anastacia) for the song Come Tu Mi Vuoi (You Need Love), and with Diane Warren (who worked with big names like Celine Dion and Aretha Franklin) on the song Se Te Ne Vai Cosi (I Want It To Be Me). Come Tu Mi Vuoi was the first single to be taken from the new album Gli Occhi Grandi Della Luna. The song Una Donna Sola was not released as single, but it was played a lot on Italian radios.
2005: Alexia took part to Sanremo Festival and was second in the women category with the song Da Grande, which was afterwards released as single (scoring #18 in the Italian charts), followed by a new album of the same name. This album featured Alexia's biggest Italian hits, along with three English bonus songs, as well as the previously unreleased song Mai Dire Mai.
Mai Dire Mai was released for the radioplay on 29th April. It is not sure wether this song was later released as single or not. Alexia did a tour in Canada in May and June. In June, Alexia was chosen as godmother for the third edition of Renault Italy Safe N'Sound campaign for the road safety. She will sing a totally new song on the album which will be realeased with Renault
Then she started her summer tour in Italy in July. The new single Une Donna Sola was planned for radio release the same month.

Her new single Grande coraggio (meaningin "Great Courage"), a rock song, was presented on the radio on May 30th. In August, Alexia did a special live concert in Pekin, for the Olympic games. Two videos were filmed for the release. It was the first video clips Alexia had filmed since Da Grande.
Her next single was Guardarti Dentro (meaning "To Look At You Inside"). The video featured Italian actors Roberto Farnesi, Kledi Kadiu, Primo Reggiani, Rossella Brescia, Giorgia Surina and Roberta Scardola and premiered at the Roma Videoclip Festival. The single reached number thirty five on the Italian itunes chart. As the single was a one track release from an album that was already out (and did not differ to the album version), no separate download or artwork was issued

She will record a song specially written for the event, and contribute to a collective song entitled Lately. Both will be included on a double CD compilation to be released in March 2009.
2009 : Alexia took part to San Remo festival in February with Mario Lavezzi, but did not win. The title of the song was Biancaneve. Summer is crazy was covered by Finnish artist Virpi - Rakkaus On Hulluu.
She re-recorded her last album with other Italian artists, such as Madame Sisi and Jeffrey from Bloom 06 (former Eiffel 65, with an English electro-pop remake of Il Branco entitled "We" is the power). The new album was entitled Ale & C.
Alexia's new single was the one she recorded for Globalone Music project. Called Come Nessuno, it featured the rising star Andrea Dianetti. The song was released as a digital download on May 19th, 2009. A video was filmed for the song with each language version dubbed over it. No artist involved appeared in the video...
Then, "We" Is The Power was released on 12 June. It was the first Alexia release in English since You Need Love.
E Non Sai (meaning "And You Do Not Know") was the third single from Ale & C, and was released on 9th October, with the video following on October 18th. Once again, no separate download or artwork was issued since this duet with Madame Sisi did not differ from the album version.

Who Needs Guitars Anyway / Megamix (Jun 2001)
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.
2014 : Alice Deejay was back for concert appearances with new singer called Ilona, the same producers and a new spelling : Alice DJ. They've been touring all over Europe and also announced a new single to be released soon.
2017 : Judith Pronk confirmed she would not wome back with Alice Deejay project.

Boske was born in Bosnia, Sarajevo on December 2nd 1990 and Lazar Corluka aka zol@ was born 12th September 1990 in Belgrade. Even as a kid, Boske moved to Belgrade and lived in Zvezdara but soon moved to Zarkovo. zol@ and him ended elementary school "Djordje Krstic" in Zarkov.

Artists and groups featuring Alley (Tanja K)
Eternal City - Get What You Want (1996)
Face II Face - I Want You (1994), You're Livin' In My Heart (1994)
Her real name is Annerly Gordon. She is one of the vocalists of the duo Ally & Jo.
Here is what is said about her on the offical website : Ally was born in Sheffield, she travelled a lot around England and then came to Italy where she did all kinds of jobs except singing, an activity she limited to the shower, until she started this project ! She is a Scorpio and says that her mission in life is to have a good time and help others have one, too. Her favourite singer is John Denver and she likes folk music and funk. Her interest in dance music goes back a long way. In fact, the first record she ever bought was by Boney M.
The Lion Sleeps Tonight (19th Feb 1995)
Holding You (26th Jun 1996)
Nasty Girl (1997)
In The Zodiac (Stars Say You'll Be Mine) (6th Apr 1998)
Producer : Davide Riva .
Ally and Jo are two plucky girls who became friends after meeting in a bookshop, where they were both in the process of buying the same book by Stephen King. They soon discovered that, apart from the well-known writer of horror stories, they also shared a passion for singing and discos. It was a natural step to combine their extraordinary vocal talents and the results didn't escape the ears of the producers, Larry Pignagnoli and Davide Riva. The choice of the first single, a remake of the classic The Lion Sleeps Tonight, in dance-club style, was an idea of Ally's, who said that she kept hearing a seventies version of the song at the hairdresser's and couldn't get it out of her system. Followed 2 other hits, Nasty Girl and Holding You.
Their fourth and last single was released 1998, it was entitled In The Zodiac (Stars Say You'll Be Mine).
Even though the cover of the singles presents 2 girls very different from Annerly Gordon, the vocals remember hers a lot, and there are still people that think both voices belong to the same person (Annerly appeared on the credits of Holding You). One of the girls could actually look like Dhany (who was credited among the songwriters of the single Nasty Girl).
Records company based in London, they stand behind the projects Jackie O, Rochelle, 4-2 the Floor, and Obsession.

Amber's real name is Marie-Claire Cremers. She recently explained that the name Amber was chosen because in America everything is sorted by A-B-C-D in record stores, so her producers wanted her have a name with “A.” She was born in the Netherlands, and her parents loved classical music (her dad is an opera singer and her mom is a piano teacher). That was not her case, actually she always liked dance music, and she started singing after moving to Germany. As of now, she has a son and resides in the United States. She comes back in Europe for the holidays, though, to visit her family.
As she was in Germany, she met the successful producers Bermann brothers, and they decided to work together. She became the first Euro-NRG artist to be signed directly to a label as a solo artist. They recorded her first single, This Is Your Night, in New York City, and it became a hit worldwide (# 1 in Israel, #14 in the Netherlands, #11 in Australia), but specially in the USA (it reached # 21), where eurodance songs like that don't use to have more than a negligible success. It sounded a little like Another Night by the Real McCoy, but that's just because it were the Bermann Brothers who produced that song too. "When I started out with This is Your Night, the lyrics were too simplistic for me. I didn't realize back then that that would be my market niche, keeping me dumb and stupid" Amber remembers. The song appeared in the movie A Night at the Roxbury.
At the beginning of 1997, her second single was released, called Colour Of Love, (quite succesful too since it reached # 12 in Israel, #74 in the pop charts in America and #31 in New Zealand). Though she is vague on the reasons why, Amber hates this song and refuses to perform it live.
It was followed by her debut album, that contains very good dance tracks, and some ballads too.
One More Night was the next single to be released. This song was originally a ballad on the This Is Your Night album, but was remixed by Hani and became a pop hit in America, peaking at #58 on the Hot 100
1998 : a collective single gathering Ultra Nate, Amber, & Jocelyn Enriquez' voices was released under the name of Stars On 54 : If You Could Read My Mind. It was a big success, peaking to #3 in Australia, #17 in Austria, and #82 in France.
1999 : Amber, her second album was preceeded by a very succesful dance track Sexual (La-Di-Da). It went #24 in New Zealand, #40 in France, #34 in the UK, and #94 in the Netherlands. However the album, a collaboration with Rick Nowels and Billy Steinberg, was rather soft of dance style. Followed Do That To Me One More Time which is not on the US version of the Amber album.
2000 : The third single from the new album was entitled Above The Clouds. It was prominently featured on the final episode of Season Three of television series, Sex and The City.
The following single to be released was be Love One Another. It was written by Amber herself, still with Rick Nowels and Billy Steinberg. Amber released Sexual in the UK on 29th May 2000, and it could well turn out to be her first UK hit as it is getting plenty of publicity.
Amber co-wrote an original track on Bette Midler's 2000 album Bette entitled Bless You Child.
The same year, Amber released the album Remixed, which contained remixes of all her previous singles, including If You Could Read My Mind. It also included a popular non-album track called Taste The Tears.
2001 : Amber released a single entitled I Found Myself In You. It was written and composed by Pam Sheyne, Kyle Nevan and Alex Wilson. Then followed Yes ! which was not included on the album. It was quite succesful and peaked to chart position #10 in Israel. Its chorus was based on the final few lines of James Joyce's controversial novel Ulysses. It became a #1 smash hit in the American dance clubs.
2002 : Amber finally completed her third album, called Naked, planned for release in August. She released a new single called The Need To Be Naked, which had an incredible success in the US : it peaked #1 in Billboard Dance Club chart. The single is not real eurodance, however on a fast tempo. The follow-up was entitled Anyway (Men Are From Mars).
Amber's songs Above the Clouds and Object of My Desire were featured on the famous TV Show Sex and the City. Amber even wrote an Unofficial Anthem for the show, called Sex & the City which appeared on the Naked album.
2004 : New Amber's song You Move Me, an electro-rock track, reached #4 in USA club chart. She should soon start a tour in the US. She changed her haircut and hair colour. Her brand new album My Kind Of World, containing 12 brand new songs, was released one month later, in October. She also released Undanced a collector's Greatest Hits compilation of unreleased Club Remixes of her previous hits from the 2 previous albums, only available exclusively through her official website boutique.
The same year, she was nominated for a Grammy Award in 2004 as songwriter on Cher's cover of Love One Another.
2005 : Amber's next single was entitled Voodoo. HX Magazine's reviewer said of her Vocal Performance "Amber growls like a sexy baby tiger". She performed for the American troops headed to Iraq.
Amber performed live in Phoenix along with Kristine W and Deborah Cox. In December she released the follow-up, entitled Just Like That. It featured remixes by Jason Nevins, Belmares & Preve, Solar City vs. DJ. Rico, and others plus a Ballad Mix.
2006 : in August, Amber announced that her new single would be entitled Melt With the Sun. It's a collaboration with Igor Kisil from Sweet Rains, who had remixed her 2 previous singles. The official release date has not been set yet.
2007 : Amber re-recorded and will release new versions of 6 of her tracks : Love One Another, Yes, Spiritual Virginity, The Need To Be Naked, If I'm Not The One, Object Of Your Desire as mp3 only, on November 20th.
2008 : Amber released This Is Your Night 2008 on February 12th. A new video was shot for the remixed version of Amber's first hit. In June, Amber announced that she would shoot a video for a song whose title was not revealed yet. All that she told, is that it will be a cover song
2009 : Amber's new single is called I don't believe in hate (Drip Drop), it was composed by Kelly Mueller and remixed by Pathos V2. The single was available on all digital megastores from 21th July 2009. In December, she left the US to move to Germany : "I have released music every year since 1996 and am trying to refocus myself", she explained in an interview.
2010 : Amber plans to re-release One More Night, as many of her big hits were not released digitally because those music masters do not belong to her, but to the labels she used to be in contract with. And because there were re recording clauses in those contracts, she was not able to do so before nowadays. But she needs to find safe funds for productions.

Amos is solo project by Amos Pizzey from United Kingdom.
Amos grew up in West London with four adopted brothers of Afro-Caribbean origin. One bio stated that "At twelve he joined a Sound System team and chatted and sang on the mike..." which is probably very English-English for "he joined a Rap group". Amos Pizzey began his recording career at the tender age of 14, when he appeared on Culture Club's first three singles and debut album. He then moved with his family to New Mexico, but soon returned to London, where he and bassist Cass Lewis formed Dark City. They made one album with producer Stewart Levine, and then broke up. But most people will probably recognize Amos from his vocals on the #1 US single by The Escape Club called Wild Wild West. He also appeared on Boy George's Everything I Own before forming ICE with Zak Starkey.
After ICE, Amos joined the Jesus Loves You tour for 2 years. He then teamed up with childhood friend Dee Vaz, writing and producing material for artists including Eve Gallagher and Jag Deep Singh. Between 1993 and 1995 Amos released a few singles as a solo artist : Sweet Music (a good eurodance track released as vinyl and as maxi-CD under the label Dig It), Only Saw Today/Instant Karma (released in UK under Positiva Records. There was also a promo doublepack containing a Factory Team Mix Remix, a Murder Mix Edit, a Murder Dub Edit, a Cleveland City Club Mix, a Cleveland City Hard Mix, and a Cleveland City Vocal), Let Love Shine and Church Of Freedom (once again a promo vinyl double pack was released. Apart from the mixes of the single, one could find a Quivver's Holy Vocal Mix, a Tinman Radio Edit, a Quivver's Darker Dub, a Rocky & Diesel Dub, a Tinman 12" Vocal Mix, and a Beat Barons Mix). More recently, he teamed up with DJ Jeremy Healy to form Bleachin' (they released tracks such as Comin' Down and Everyone Loves You Everythings Free).
There is apparently a little nifty story concerning the Only Saw Today/Instant Karma release (to which Fabio Serra contributed). Seems Amos took his inspiration for this from the John Lennon tune, adding his own strong antifascist message to John's powerful positivity. An early 12" version caught the attention and support of quite a few UK DJ's. A remix issued by an Italian record label soon hit #1 on the Italian dance & radio charts. It was in the process of being remixed for the UK market, when they received the dreaded "cease & desist" letter from Yoko & BMG Music, stating that Yoko Ono had refused permission to use the chorus from "Instant Karma". Amos gave his old band mate Zak a call, asking for help. Zak called his father, Ringo Starr, who took a listen, liked what he heard, and agreed to call Yoko and plead Amos' case. Remarkably, Yoko agreed to change her mind, and the track was finally able to be released worldwide.
Amos also did remixes for Reel 2 Real (Are You Ready For Some More), Diddy (Give Me Love), George Michael (Star People '97).

Label : Union Records. The project was created by wellknown DJ and producer Sam Paganini and internationally known producer and arranger Max Persona. They first met as they were working on a production for Sharada House Gang. One year after, they met again, this time in Union records. The name "Analogic tribe" expressed their will to rediscover the warm and wrapping up sonority of the analogic sound and all the sonority of that time proposed : incisive phrases, pad with the unique warmth of the old synth and so on. The project was fronted by Sabina, a dancer and animator in discos and by Etienne, male rapper and dancer. SAIFAM described them as "a pair of impact and everwhelming energy, when they find in front of the public, their natural habitat".
Want You Baby, the project's first single, featured female vocals and male rap samples, along with a overwhelming beat. Later came Do You Wanna Mine (featured on the compilation Currupipi Mix) and I'll Take You There (under Molotov records, featured on the compilation Profondo Rosso Progressive) then 2 other singles To Be With You in 1997 and Sign O' The Times in 1998.

Thomas Anders was born on March 1st as Bernd Weidung in Münstermaifeld/Eifel. His mother Helga ran a grocery store and a café. His father worked as a revenue officer and as a mayor of the small town Mörz. Other family members include brother Achim, who is six years older and Tanja, the pet of the family, who is 7 years younger than Thomas Anders.
Even as a child, Thomas was more an aesthete than an athlete. So he preferred music instead of soccer. His debut on stage was at the age 7 at a St. Nicholas' Day Party, where he sang Christmas carols. From that day on he knew: " I'm going to be a singer". The neighbors were able to see the birth of his career: The house boomed when Thomas turned on his cassette recorder, singing duets with Barry Manilow. Even when he went to school he took part in several talent competitions.
He took piano lessons and later he even changed schools to take music as special subject. This is how he came to Koblenz, where he is still living today. After he had passed his education, he signed up at the university of Mainz to study German Studies, Journalism and Musicology. By this time he had already performed in several clubs and discotheques.
A music competition of the radio station "Radio Luxembourg", (a highly noted and respected competition in those days) was the decisive of a career as a singer. Thomas aroused enthusiasm. However, he got no points from two of the members of the jury, and it seemed as if he had no chance for success. No ways! Those two members offered him a recording contract two days later. From that day on he called himself Thomas Anders.
In 1980, Judy the first single of the 15 year old Thomas Anders was released. Several singles followed which were produced by Daniel David. In 1981 Thomas had his debut on TV in the Michael Schanze Show "Hätten sie heut´ Zeit für uns". He performed the song Du Weinst Um Ihn.
In 1983 producer Dieter Bohlen recorded a German cover version of the song Pick Up Phone (F.R. David). At that time Thomas was an artist at HANSA, (today BMG Berlin), Dieter asked him to come to the recording studio in Hamburg to record the song together with Dieter Bohlen. Dieter Bohlen was enthusiastic about his voice. As a result he produced several German songs with Thomas, for example Wovon Träumst Du Denn ?, which peaked at 16 on the German Pop-Charts, Endstation Sehnsucht and Heißkalter Engel (German version of Send Me An Angel from the band Real Life).
In autumn 1984, Dieter Bohlen wrote the song You're My Heart, You're My Soul under the Spanish sun, which was the debut song for Dieter and Thomas. Modern Talking was born. You're My Heart, You're My Soul went to the top of the Charts and remained there for 6 weeks. The songs of the Pop-Duo were a huge success, nearly every song became a hit and things happened really fast. Soon, Modern Talking was the most successful German Pop-Duo and they got several gold and platinum records...
At the beginning of the 90s, Thomas wanted to give up making music and he spent a lot of time in Los Angeles (USA). When he felt that music was still his passion, he started a solo-career at which he can proudly look back. In the whole he has released six solo albums.
Between 1989 and 1995 he worked together with famous producers. The first one was Gus Dudgeon, known for being Elton John's producer. Their collaboration led to the album Different. The single Love Of My Own was his biggest success.
In 1991 he recorded the album Whispers in London. One year later he recorded the album Down On Sunset in Los Angeles. In 1993 the next album of Thomas followed : When Will I See You Again was also recorded in Los Angeles. In 1994 Thomas Anders sang Spanish for the first time and he released the album Barcos De Cristal.
Then he started working with Peter Wolf (Sara, Everybody Has Fun Tonight) and recorded the album Souled. He went on his own solo tour throughout foreign countries, like Kapstadt, Johannesburg, Hong Kong, Singapore, Taipei, Santiago de Chile, Moscow, etc. He performed in front of as many as 85 000 enthusiastic fans.
He sang duets with well-known artists like Glen Medeiros (Standing Alone, on the album Down On Sunset), the Pointer Sisters (Feel For The Physical, on the album Souled) and Three Degrees (When Will I See You Again, on the same-titled album).
As a composer he also had some hits in foreign countries. He wrote the title song for an Argentinean Serial and went together with the Spanish artist Martha Sanchez to position 1 in the Mexican Charts.
2003 : his single Independent Girl was released on November 10th . It has nothing to see with eurodance, unfortunately. It is a mid-tempo number, which reflects both his musical future and his Modern Talking roots. On the maxi CD one could find the bonus track In your Eyes, a ballad written by Thomas himself in collaboration with Peter Ries (famed No Angels producer).
2004 : Thomas released the maxi-CD King Of Love on the 2nd of February, as well as a new single called This Time. The follow-up will be entitled Tonight Is The Night, and it will be out on the 3rd of May.
The second season of German music TV show Best of Formel Eins again featured Thomas Anders as one of the hosts of the show. The show looked back at the music videos presented on the music show Formel Eins during the Eighties. The second season of the show will have ten regular episodes and one live finale show. The first episode was aired on 8th November on German TV station Kabel 1.
In October, he released a new single called Just Dream, which entered the German singles sales charts at number 64. The song was the 10th solo single by Thomas Anders to reach the German Top 100 and the 30th chart single that featured Thomas Anders as a vocalist (including Modern Talking singles). Just Dream was not included on Thomas’ most recent album This Time. It was written for the show Holiday On Ice.
2006 : Thomas Anders was among the German finalists to be chosen to represent Germany at Eurovision 2006, but he ended #2 and wasn't selected. He released a new album entitled Songs Forever, and received the title of honorary Professor of Kiev National University of Arts and Culture.
2008: Thomas Anders regularly appears on stage with his orchestra to a special show called Thomas Anders Fanparty, during which he sings all the Modern Talking hits. In August, he released a new song entitled Ibiza Baba Baya, with Sound Chateau, for once a dance song. Followed Kisses For Christmas in November.
2009 : he presented his new single Good Karma at die Frühlingsshow on ZDF at the end of April. The same-titled album should be released late summer 2009. It will also include the duet with Sandra, The Night Is Still Young.
2011 : in August, title of second single from the album Two he did with Uwe Fahrenkrog was No More Tears On The Dancefloor. It will include a special club remix by Thomas Detert. In November he released an album entitled Balladen and released his autobiography entitled 100 PROZENT ANDERS: Die Autobiografie - Mein Leben - und die Wahrheit über Modern Talking, Nora und Dieter Bohlen.
2012 : next single from "the gentleman of music" (how he is frequently called on German TV) is a duet with Russian singer Kamaliya entitled No Ordinary Love. He released a Best Of album on October 3rd. and a new album entitled Christmas For You.

Russian opera, pop, house and trance singer Angelika Aleksandrovna Yutt (Russian: Анжелика Александровна Ютт) was born 5 November 1969 in Simferopol, Crimea. She did studies at Simferopol Musical School and Simferopol Musical College. She started a career of a soloist in Crimea Ukrainian Musical Theatre and at the same time began as a pop singer
She moved to Minsk, where she became a soloist of "The Charmers" band in 1992. Next year, she became a soloist of the Belarus State Concert Orchestra. She took part to many international vocal contests and festivals.
In 1996, Angelika released her first solo album Bereg Lyubvi (берег Любви "Love Shore" in Russian) under her complete name Angelika Yutt, along with a video clip for the title song.
1998 was a very busy year for Angelika : she published her second studio album Planeta Lyubvi (Планета Любви, meaning "Planet of Love") in collaboration with actor Vladimir Stankevitch under project name Gruppa Angelika. Album featured many very good eurodance songs. It also included song Mama Maroussia (Мама-Маруся), a track inspired from Ricchi e Poveri's Mamma Mia but also from a Belarussian and an Ukranian song. It was nominated for Best Song Of The Year at The Belarusian Chart-98" Music Video Festival and a videoclip was shot for this song. It was followed by a video book entitled Zakoldovannyi Rai (Заколдованный Рай meaning "The Charmed Paradise"). They were about to start a big promotional tour in Russia, but at that time, eurodance style was already fading away, so sponsors defected, and Angelika had to search for new musical inspiration...
In 2002, Angelika started working with Russian producer Igor Siliviorstov from Moscow (he stood behind projects Virus and Strelki). She released album Nad Oblakami (Над Облаками meaning "Above The Clouds") album, with a more trancy sound.
2004 : she started working as a vocal trainer.
2006 : after her contract with Igor Siliviorstov ended, Angelika self-produced her next album Proshai (meaning "farewell" but also "forgive"). She published videoclips for songs Ya Lechu (I'm Flying) and Proshai
2009: Angelika released her new album under Austrian label Millennium Opera published. Mystery Of Time was an experimental album introducing a new sound : dream-mystery, a new musical trend described as a mix of new age and new opera.
2010 : she released single My Surreal Dream, a dream dance/ambient song.
2011 : a remixes package for song Follow Me! was out.
2012 : she took part to TV show Sing! on STS channel.
2013: Angelika was the first Russian artist to sing the Russian Federation National Anthem in Soul. This raised violent reactionson social networks. Her voice was featured by Vadim Xorosh on single Bad Love Story, by Xten on Dance With Me and by SourCream on I'll Be With You.
2014 : she released album I See You.
2016 : she released a digital album entitled Eurodance 90s

Ride On A Meteorite (1995)
Whenever You Want Me (1996)
Musical team : Walter Cremonini,
Alessandro Gilardi and the D.J. Riccardo Romanini
Label : Italian Style Records
Antares was the name chosen by Giacomo Maiolini on this particular project for which cooperate "a french vocalist of great and different musical experiences" (rumors say it was rather Clara Moroni), the team Walter Cremonini, Alessandro Gilardi and the D.J. Riccardo Romanini, the rapper Asher Senator (already known in the eighties and now come back on the music scenes). Time Records was the home for Usura, Jinny, Deadly Sins, Silvia Coleman, Carol Bailey.
Ride On A Meteorite, Antares' first single, was released in Italy in January 1995. It was out in Europe during the Spring, reached in France number 25 in the national top sales charts. Emmanuella Gubinelli (aka Taleesa) was credited in the songwriting, as well as R. Arduini, and D. Abaribi. The second rap verse ("This old man, he played one...") came actually from an English nursery rhyme : This Old Man.
The follow up You Belong To Me, released during Autumn 1995, was also very successful, reaching # 4. A remixes CD was released on the 2nd of January 1996. It was even covered by 2 other euro projects : Comet and Antenn MC.
It was followed by the song Let Me Be Your Fantasy which was also a big success, with a remixes CD including a Sputnik mix, an Apollo Mix and a Cosmo mix and a few other remixes of You Belong To Me. The follow-up to this single was Whenever You Want Me, a single without the male rap. Then, in 1997, they released the very housy I Want Your Love, once again without any rap.
In a French musical magazine, the group was presented differently : 2 French girls (Aurore and Sophie) and a French rapper (Eric Vincent). This was actually a dancers team, for performances in France. Eric Vincent also appeared on the covers of volumes 11 and 12 of compilations La Plus Grande Discothèque du Monde.
The single Bright Side Of The Sun was released in May 1995 in Germany, in the beginning of 1996 in France, by a German group, so probably no relationship with the eurodance project. The sound was hardtrance.
2002 : Seikos pres. Hyper released a cover version of Antares' mega hit Ride On A Meteorite.
2006 : a remix version of Ride On A Meteorite was released as Antares vs Bigroom Society (previously known as Antares vs Clubraiders). The vinyl contained 3 mixes. It entered the Austrian DJ charts at the end of August.
Nowadays, Eric Vincent performs as a member of Brown Sugar band and also appears in various shows on French TV. Aurore Stauder works as choreographers, stage director and artist director.

Released in 1994, it was an awesome eurodance track featuring the rap of MC Fixx it. The vocalist was thought to be Ann-Marie Smith, but was actually Beverley Skeete (who also did backing vocals for Clock). It was very successful in many countries in Europe and also in Israel where it reached position # 24. A remixes CD was also released, including an XX Extended mix, a Bass Line Mix, a Magic Domingo Mix, a Techno Kingdom Mix.
On the Japanese compilation House revolution Vol.48 one could find the song I Need To Tell Everybody (Techno Club "B" Edit).
In 1998 Move Your Body was remixed in another style (house) and under another name : Boston DJ's - Happy People, produced by Dimas & Martinez, also producers of the group Nature. A very rare Anticappella album was released. It contained all the singles, plus some nice eurodance tracks, including Movin to The Beat which included a sample from Pamela Fernandez's Kickin in the Beat.
2010 : Media Records released digitally some of the tracks of Anticappella's album (Baby Today, I Need A Hero and Bring Me Down)

This is a project of the records company Media Records. As usual, it is very hard to know which artists hide behind this mysterious project, which mainly uses voices samples.
What I Gotta Do uses the same voice sample as the Cappella track of the same name. Dreamer is an instrumental dream dance track, with a female voice just singing "Dreamer". The follow-up Just A Moment is in the same style. Don't Stop The Rhythm is a eurohouse track.

The DJs Robin Söderman and David Westerlund were childhood friends and neighbours in Lidingo, an island in Stockholm. They established Antiloop in year 1994 when a friend of them who owned a midi-studio offered them time to work there. They composed their first tracks using a Macintosh with Cubase 2.5 and an Ensoniq sampler, a Lexicon reverbe ans an 8-channel mixing table. Michel 'DJ Blakk' is the voice behind the tracks I Believe and Trespasser. They define their music style as 'progressive dance'.
In 1995 they released an EP entitled N.S.F.M.C. (Not Suitable For Mass Consomption) from where the song Beauty And The Beast became a hit. Antiloop's songs have succeeded especially in Sweden and in Norway. In June 1996 they released their first album called LP which went gold in Sweden and brought them a "Best dance act" Swedish Grammy award. Singles such as In My Mind and Believe became huge hits and techno-classics. In My mInd charted #16 in Israel (this was their only release in the country). On the 7th of February 2000, Start Rocking was the first single to be released from their new album. It was followed by Only You which peaked number 1 in the Swedish Dance Chart.
They also have remixed some singles by E-Type (Calling Your Name, So Dem A Con, Back In The Loop), Aqua (Dr Jones, Lollipop), Melodie MC (Real Man), Flexx, Vacuum, Kate, Army Of Lovers... They have their own studio, called Rebel's Room, in the center of Stockholm. Every Sunday (starting from August 20th 2000). Robin and David will be inhouse DJ's at Cafe Opera in Stockholm.

This pop-dance oriented project was produced in Sweden. The group included 19 years old Elena (or Helena) Paparizou and 23 years old Nikos Panagiotidis. Both were born in Sweden after their parents immigrated to this nordic country. Their music is very dancable and combines Scandinavian beat with Greek touch. The producer team and the dancemusic creators, C&N Project, were earlier season working DJ's in the Greek Islands. Wild disco nights at Rhodes and Kos have created curiosity about the Greek culture and an interest of creating the unique Greek sound.
Elena grew up in Sweden. Her artistic talents and eagerness to excel became apparent from an early age, and she began her training in singing, dancing and acting while she was still at school.
As a matter of fact Antique managed to reach top 5 on the Swedish Sales Chart with a Greek song ! Not only that, they were also nominated in the category "Modern Dance" for a Swedish Grammy Award. Their first single Opa-Opa was top 10 in the whole of Scandinavia this summer and one could hear the song everywhere. All of a sudden everybody knew about Antique ! Second single Dinata Dinata was top 10 for 5 weeks on the Swedish Sales Chart. Both singles had reached Gold status and Opa-Opa had also reached Platinum.
With their song I Would Die For You they entered this year Eurovision Song Contest on March 6th representing... Greece and reached the 3rd place. The song was written by two well-known greek song writers, Antonios Tapas and Nikos Terzis. This led to a successful career which has included several platinum albums, a European tour, and collaborations with many highly successful artists from Greece and abroad.
They released their second album Die For You which contains light, easy to listen and want-to-dance music. The title song used such an instrument named bouzouki. This song is presented in 2 versions : English and Swedish. Simlar pop tune but with much more pronounced euro backbone is Follow Me. This is probably the song in which you can fully appreciate beatiful and strong voice of Elena. Ligo Ligo sang in Greek will give you a clear example of the sound of Greece. Very melodic tune, again with some very unique instrumentation. For true euro sound you should check Tell Me, Lonely Nights or Something About You. The album contains also some slower tunes but in overall this is nice dance offering.
Despite Antique's great success, the group's journey came to an end in 2003. Making one of her most difficult decisions ever, Helena decided to pursue a solo musical career. This brought her into contact with Sony Music with whom she signed her first contract as a solo artist.
In December 2003, Helena Paparizou released her first solo single, Anapandeetes Klisis ('Missed Calls'), a song that was written especially for her by famous singer-songwriter, Christos Dantis. Naturally, Anapandeetes Klisis became a major hit and remained at the top of the airplay charts as well as the sales charts for a very long time, reaching gold status.
During the winter of 2003-2004, Helena appeared alongside one of Greece's biggest male singing stars, Antonis Remos, at Studio Pireos night club. In spring 2004, Helena released her first solo album Protereotita ('Priorities') from which Antithesis, Anamnisis, Katse Kala, Stin Kardia Mou Mono Thlipsi became major hits. Her success brought her to Fever Music night club where she performed the winter season 2004-2005 alongside Sakis Rouvas and Giorgos Mazonakis.
2005 : Elena competed for Greece at the Eurovision contest with her song My Number One and won.

Wanna Be With You (1997)
Right Here Waiting (1998)
The friends João Paulo, Giovanni and Alex developed a project with a female vocalist called Adriana Mezzadri... The songwriter was Roberta Ayres. The name Any Second came up when they tried to get into a contest of dance bands… Alex said they could call any time, any second, to check the info 'bout their band, and they not even had a name ! And while they were joking with Alex, the name Any Second was approved. They were produced by Sandro Passes. Their label was MDS Music
The song Wanna Be With You, released in 1997, was a hit all over Brazil. It got into many compilations including the soundtrack of the soap opera Malhação (by Rede Globo). Then, the same year came Right Here Waiting (a dance version for Richard Marx's song), another hit that topped the Brazilian charts for weeks and got into some compilations. The CD single contained 2 versions of the plus, plus one version of the previous hit Wanna Be With You
The third single Tonight (out in 1998) didn't have the same success as did the other two, but was played during a time in Brazilian radios. A year later the group got over, each one of them got their own way into the music scene…
Now, 5 years after their last song, they are thinking of getting together again to record a new dance song.

So successful that they already plan to release another track of Missing Heart's album, Prison Of Passion (with remixes by Deep Forest).

Roses Are Red (Svenstrup & Vendelboe Remixes) (21st Apr 2017)
Members : Claus Norreen, Søren Rasted, Lene Nystrøm, Rene Dif
Aqua was formed in 1994, though the production and writing nucleus of Claus and Søren had been together since 1989 as members of Joyspeed (they started composing music for a Danish movie called Fraekke Frida). In this incarnation they enjoyed a solitary success in the Danish charts with Itsy Blitzy. Meanwhile Rene was working as a DJ in Norway. Rene soon discovered Lene’s talent for singing in a TV show. She was only 20 years old. They both headed of for Denmark and got together with Claus and Søren. Joyspeed got a contract with a record company in Sweden. Its first single was released in the Swedish charts but lasted there only for a week. It was a flop and their music style had to be reconsidered.
Then came the idea of Aqua. The name came from a poster in Rene, Lene, Claus and Søren’s practice room. Their new style started to take shape : they headed to soft and melodic europop songs so they decided to dissolve their old contract and got a new one from Universal Music in Denmark. Their debut single, Roses Are Red, released in September 1996, was a huge success in Denmark (topping the charts, achieving platinum sales and earning a Danish Grammy nomination as Best Danish dance act). The follow-up, My Oh My, released in February 1997, also went straight to #1 in Denmark (it received gold after only 6 days). Barbie Girl was released next.
This tribute-cum-pastiche of the American toy favoured by pre-adolescent girls received extensive television and radio airplay as it climbed and eventually topped the UK charts. It sold over 4 million copies and lead Aqua to fame all around the world. This came about when a Danish radio station sent copies of the song to American radio stations. As time passed by, it became the most requested song ever. Barbie Girl went straight in at n°7 on the Billboard Hot 100, the highest position ever for an act’s debut single. It went to number 2 in the UK as well on it’s way passing the Spice Girls, and Elton John’s Candle in the Wind 1997. It reached # 1 in Israel where it was elected song of the year. Aqua's album (titled Aquarium) was soon released and received gold after just two days!
Part of the reason for the success of Barbie Girl was its amusing video, which featured lead singer Lene Nystrom dressed in a succession of Barbie outfits, with band member Rene playing male doll Ken. On the scene, they did not need any dancer, because they prefer spontaneity and creativity. For their first TV appearance they tried to learn some dance steps, but it was impossible.
Doctor Jones (track 5 on the Aquarium album) has proved to the world that Aqua were not one-hit-wonders. It reached successively to the #1 spot in many countries such as Israel and UK. Lollipop (Candyman) followed and made it to the Top five of the Australian charts whereas it peaked # 7 in Israel.
The 5th September 1997 MCA, which releases Aqua's songs in the USA, stopped the distribution of Barbie Girl as a single. As a reaction to this the track fell from #7 to #9 on the Billboards Hot 100 singles. The reason for this was that the album's release was planned for 20th September in the USA and MCA was worried that people only want this very song and therefore be satisfied with just the single and that way avoid the album. This was a way to force the fans to buy the whole album.
On the 12th September 1997, Mattel Inc. had filed suit against MCA Records Inc. and Universal Music & Video Distribution Inc. for trademark infringement and dilution resulting from the alleged unauthorized use of the toy manufacturer's Barbie doll trademarks and likeness in the hit song Barbie Girl. Filed yesterday in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California, Western Division, the suit, which also names MCA's British, Danish, and Swedish affiliates, claims that the song contains lyrics that 'associate sexual and other unsavory themes with Mattel's Barbie products.' Among the lyric examples cited are 'kiss me here, touch me there, hanky panky' and 'make me walk, make me talk, do whatever you please, I can act like a star, I can beg on my knees.' The suit seeks an injunction forcing the defendants to stop their alleged infringement of the Barbie doll trademarks, the recall and destruction of all infringing products, and unspecified damages. In a prepared statement, MCA responds: 'In our view, Aqua's Barbie Girl is just a fun, funny pop song, and every copy is clearly marked with a disclaimer that reads: 'The song Barbie Girl is a social comment and was not created or approved by the makers of the doll.'. Anyway, thanks to their protest, Mattel provided a non-voluntary and free advert for Aqua...
In total, around 3 million copies of the album Aquarium have been sold through out the world. In the US it went #7 on the Billboard Album chart. The gang has still to get their hands on the huge amount of cash that their album and singles have brought in. Despite this they already have plans on what it will be spent on. 'Each one of us wants a brand new, cool car.' -boasts Lene, 'For myself, I want a jeep.' Unlike many other fortunate newbies in the music branch, buying a mansion of their own is not on their top list. 'We don't have to worry about buying houses yet since we're presently much too busy touring. I can buy a house when I turn 50 after all !'
On the 1st of December, 1997, Aqua released an 80 minutes long documentary smmarizing their carreer from the beginning to where they are now. The video was filled with clips from Aqua's visits in several countries, for example USA and Japan, and interviews with all four members. Along with the video there is a CD with a completly new Aqua song only released in Japan : Didn't I, a poster and four Aqua-postcards.
After My Oh My (once again # 1 in Israel and #6 in UK) Aqua released Didn't I taken from the Japanese version of Aquarium in the beginning of 1998. They also released a remix album called Aqua Mania Remix. Aqua's following single was Turn Back Time. Released in 1998, it made its debut at number one in the UK and #3 in Israel. It was the theme song from the movie Sliding Doors. The video clip for Aqua's Turn Back Time was different from previous ones as colour and dancing was missing. In fact, it was more of a contrast to Barbie Girl and the other songs made by Aqua. Turn Back Time was one of a few ballads featured on the album. This proved the diversity of Aqua, a variation from classical to rock-like band. The last single to be taken form Aquarium was Good Morning Sunshine, which ranked # 19 in Israel and # 18 in UK.
1999 : Axel Boys Quartet did a cover of Barbie Girl.
In December 1999, Aqua performed in a small club in front of a selected audience in San Francisco, California in September. Last time Claus, Søren, René and Lene did a real live show was when the band ended their mini tour of Scandinavia in the autumn ‘98. Back then, the capacity of the venues were around 15 000, culminating in Tivoli Gardens, Copenhagen, where 70 000 people turned up. Nevertheless, Aqua was really anxious about performing in the San Francisco club Bimbo – despite the fact that the audience only consisted of a ”few” hundred people and the entrance was free! However, the audience consisted of the absolute top management of the Universal Music Group who were gathered at a convention in the city and among other things they were introduced to the top priorities of the near future. Aqua was selected to perform at this convention together with A*Teens and S Club 7 and the set consisted primarily of songs from Aqua’s coming album. However, the single Dr. Jones from Aquarium had also found its way to the set list. Everything lived up to Aqua's usual insistent live show style and as the mood rose and the ties were loosened singer René Dif showed why the band is called Aqua: When the Managing Directors had come all the way up to the edge of the stage, Dissf repaid them by splashing a bottle of water in their faces...
Cartoon Heroes was the first single from the new Aqua album Aquarius (planned for release in February). The promo video arrived in January 2000. Shot in Prague, it was one of the most costy of the period, with a budget of 3,5 millions $. "It is a good story. We are four super heroes who save the world – but not four super heroes who take themselves too seriously. The universe is futuristic yet old-fashioned, a mixture of past and present to make everything a bit corny in a funny way," says Søren Rasted about the concept. Canadian music television channel Much Music put the video for on heavy rotation. Not surprisingly, as a matter of fact, since Aqua had been extremely popular in Canada since Aquarium made Canada one of Aqua's best selling territories in the entire world with sales of more more than one million albums.
On the official Danish top 100 singles airplay chart the single has gone sky-high from its #92 entry to #5 - in just three days ! The music video for the single was enjoying similar demands from music TV-stations. Sweden’s ZTV was shouting "hit warning", and Italian news channel RAI-1 just premiered Cartoon Heroes on its evening news slot. In Asia, Channel V International added Cartoon Heroes as video of the week and put it on "nuclear rotation" - just like the station's Greater Chinese wing. In Israel it reached position # 1 during one week, and it went #7 in UK.
After a fantastic, 10-day airplay extravaganza, Aqua finally reached the top spot on the official airplay chart in the band’s native Denmark (and also in Spain), with no less than 394 plays in one week. Cartoon Heroes was out in the stores on January 31st. Then came Around The World, which went #26 in UK. Afterwards they released their third single from the Aquarius album, Bumble Bees. Aqua was also featured on Pavarotti's album - titled Pavarotti & Friends for Cambodia & Tibet - released worldwide on September 12th 2000.
The next single to be released is We Belong To The Sea, with a video clip shot in Spain. It's already a very succesful track everywhere in Europe and in Israel where it peaked # 6 (and still charting).
In March 2001 Aqua won three awards at the Danish music awards. Best Music Video (Around The World), Best Pop Album (Aquarius) and the Danish government's special award for international success leading to high export figures. Afterwards they went back in the studio, working on their 3rd album. So far it looks as if we can expect an album to be released in the autumn, with a single coming out before summer. "For this album we have chosen an approach different from what we did when we recorded Aquarius in various rented houses where we were locked away for months", explains Søren Rasted. "We have actually bought or own recording studio in London where we all live. So now we can go to the studio and work as long as we like and then go back to our homes and relax, without having that feeling of working, eating and sleeping in the same house for ages. I think it applies a more spontaneous approach to the whole work process."
Aqua also recorded track that were never officially released. Among them, Hi-Fi Stereo, Shakin' Stevens (Is a superstar), Here Come The Birds (a classic Aqua song, reminding of the 60s), and Wow, Wow, Wow (a song containing a lot of rapping by René Dif).
Søren and Lene recently got married in Las Vegas. Claus, Lene, René and Søren have decided to take a break from Aqua - for the time being. Say the band members in an official statement : "We have been very privileged. We have had lots of great adventures, seen the world and loved to meet our fans when we’ve been out performing. Yet still, we have realised that the spark just isn’t there right now." ”We owe to our fans to give one hundred per cent and that is why we feel this is the right thing to do : Take a break and not record a new album, as long as we ourselves don’t know exactly which way to go." Aqua stress that the break is absolutely non-dramatic. The foursome are still best friends. They still own a recording studio in London, and none of them could possibly dream about a life outside the music business. Lene and René have already announced they will pursue solo carreers, while Søren and Claus will continue writing and producing music, as a duo and as individuals, for Lene and René as well as other artists.
2005 : Lene and Søren contributed with many other Danish artists to a benefic single to raise funds for the Tsunami victims : Hvor Små Vi Er, released in January.
On the 12th of November, the documentary movie Turn Back Time by Tomas Gislason premiered in Copenhagen. In the movie the four members of Aqua join each other in a house and talk about their time as Aqua, the split-up of the group and more...
2006 : there were rumors about a comeback album but it could be another project of the same name. In March Rob Mayth released a cover of Barbie Girl.
2007 : In April, it was announced that production would begin on ‘My Oh My: An Aqua Musical’ for a Summer 2008 debut. Production would be handled by Brighton based company Windmill records and famed Aqua impressionist Paul Benson was being sought after for the role of René. No names have yet been announced to play the role of Lene. Bluwax$ covered their hit single Barbie Girl.
2009 : Aqua are back with a brand new single : Back to the 80's, released in May. Aqua's new album is actually a best of entitled Greatest Hits, released in Denmark and Sweden this week. It includes digitally remastered versions of 16 old songs and three new songs: the single Back to the 80's, My Mamma Said, and Live Fast - Die Young. In December, they released their new single Spin Me A Christmas.
2010 : German model Daniela Katzenberger recorded a cover of Aqua's hit Barbie Girl 2010.
2011 : In January, Aqua officially confirmed on their new Facebook account that they were working on brand new album to be released this summer in connection with their 2011 tour. Aqua's new single was entitled How R U Doin? and was released on March 14th. They performed it live at X-Factor 2011 final in Denmark, in front of 41,000 audience. Barbie Girl was covered by Marie Serneholt.
Aqua's new album was once again postponed, it is now planned for October 3rd. Title was revealed : Megalomania. In September, Aqua released 2 new digital singles in Denmark and Norway only : Playmate To Jesus and Like A Robot. The first is intended for radios, while the second is destinated to disco and clubs. In October, Megalomania was already certified gold in Denmark and peaked as #2 on the official Danish sales charts.
2013 : Aqua have announced that they're back in the studio working on some new songs.
2016 : Aqua reunited for a series of shows to celebrate 20 years of their hit single, Barbie Girl. Shortly after, they announced that Claus Norreen would not return to the group : his "musical focus" had changed and that he no longer desired to tour with Aqua. In November, Barbie Girl was covered by German real-TV candidates duo Gina-Lisa & Florian Wess
2017 : they released a remix package for Roses Are Red including 2 remixes by Svenstrup & Vendelboe.

Past & Future (20th Apr 2018)
Ukrainian project Aqua Vita (Аква Віта) was formed in 1993 by Igor Balan and Natalia Luchnikova in Kirovograd, Ukraine. Their first live performance took place on the 19th of September 1993 at Kirovograd Day celebration.
In 1994 the band released it's debut album Neskazani slova ("Not said words") under the label Elema.
One year later Aqua Vita participated at the festival Chervona Ruta '95 and reached the final. But during the festival Natalia Luchnikova left the group. In two weeks before the final DJ Andrew Mishura, who worked on Kirovograd Radio, aquainted Igor Balan with Irina "Phila" Filatova. So, Irina became a new vocalist of Aqua Vita.
In 1996 Aqua Vita released the second album, which was entitled Tekhnotronutyi ("Techno-touched") under the label NAC (National Audio Company). The same year the group started collaborating with Terytoriya A Producers Centre.
In 1998 the band released the new album A teper use inakshe ("Now everything is different"), which became the most successful album of Aqua Vita.
In 1999 Aqua Vita stopped collaboration with Terytoriya A Producers Centre. The same year Aqua Vita released its 4th album Tilky ty ("Only You").
One year later the album Novaya Igra ("New Game") was planned to be released. But Aqua Vita's history turned into different way. In 2000 the group split, so, the album never got released (it only exists as mp3, available for downloading on Igor Balan's website).
Since 2000 Igor and Irina went solo. Irina created a pop-rock band Phila. She recorded an EP called Ne Vidane. But the band hadn't any support and split very soon.
In 2002 Igor Balan released his solo-album Vyuga.
In 2006 there were some attempts to bring Aqua Vita back. Unfortunately it didn't happen.

Ardis Fagerholm was born 8th March 1971. At the age of 13 she moved from the West Indian island Dominica to settle down in Sweden. In 1991 the American singer/arranger, Jon Berger, teamed with Ardis' to record her first demo. One year later, Stockholm Records signed Ardis kicking her musical career into high gear.
Prayer For Africa is a very nice eurodance song. The single included remixes of Ain't Nobody's Business, the previous single. It was produced by Anders Hansson, co-produced by Bass Nation, engineered by Anders Hansson and Leif Allansson. Ardis released an album the same year, but it is not known wether the tracks are also eurodance (it is probably rather a funk / soul album). All songs on the album were written by Ardis, with the exception of Ain't Nobody's Business. The album went gold shortly after its release and Ardis was nominated for a Grammis, the Swedish equivalent of the Grammy Awards. A tour started in late '94 and continued in to '95.
Another album entitled Woman was recorded in 1996.
In 1998 Ardis released a single No Man's Land which was a soundtrack to the film Hamilton After that, she withdrew from the public eye and only appeared as a guest vocalist on Commonly Unique with The Real Group in 2000 and Merit Hemmingsons album En Plats I Skogen in 2002

Can You Feel It (Jul 2010)
Loving You (15th Jan 2016)
Roby Arduini inherits the passion for the music from his father. Since his early age (7 years) his family lead him to play organ and from l 0 to 18 he attended classical studies in piano. At 13 he founds his first band: he has been writing songs since and has been always workinghard to improve his creativity.
Roby's sound is strongly influenced by Genesis and progressive rock: This sound really hit his music sensibility. The best example of such influnce is a track written in 1975: The Canterbury Tales by Geoffrey Chaucer to which he composed the music. But Roby is looking for something new: he pays much more attention to American rock to improve his restless desire for an artistic communication. ln 1980 he began a new adventure assembling a big band: Dea Diva. The project totally based on sound impact.
All these attempts show his wish to become a full time musician: he wants to live the music. His dream become reality when Mauro Farina called him to play keyboards in his group. At the same time Roby starts working in Mauro studios.
The career of Roby Arduini as a producer began in 1983. From that moment his passion for music pushed him into many successful producing experiences with the ultimate goal to be in the dance charts all over the world. Some of his first tracks include: Sharada, Rose, Risen From the Rank followed by Movin' and To Go Crazy by Lee Marrow that entered the Billboard chart. The Yankees l Can't Feel It remained in French charts for a record 30 weeks. After this initial amazing success, the main indepenclent companies in Italy such as Time and Media immediately began to offer him the chance to produce their most important artists.
In the middle of 1990 he meets Antonio Puntillo. They worked on a common project. Since then, they started working closely with each other. Many companies use their creativity. The results of their fruitful professional relationship are many hits ail over the world such as:

Composer and rapper of MC Erik and Barbara
Erik was born on 17th September l971 in Rimavska Sobota. His father had been playing the guitar and the bassguitar in a local band for twenty years. Afterwards he became his son's manager. Erik's older sister is already married and lives in Prostejov, his mother works as a laborant. Erik always loved his family very much : when he was a little boy, he used to look forward to his parents' return from work and didn't like to be alone. Erik studied the flute and the clarinet. Nowadays, he only plays these instruments on Christmas days.
All begun in August 1986, as three young musicians were looking for a guitar player for their group. This is how Maduar came to an existence. They were gradually gaining popularity among the students they used to make concerts for. Erik also did some DJing in Rimavska Sobota and surroundings. That is how he became No. 1 of the Fun Radio competition for DJs in mixing. He joined Maduar again just when they got a synthesizer. Computer music was just Erik's cup of tea. Maduar broke through with the single I Feel Good with already Barbara as a singer. Their next hit Do It attacked the top positions of national hitlists and the album I Feel Good was ready by the end of 1994. However, Erik and Barbara decided to leave Maduar and to continue on their own under the name of MC Erik & Barbara.
In future Erik would love to continue in what he started. He likes to create music much more than rap and would wish to be conjured in a kingdom of synthesizers. However he confesses he would give up the music if it may cause troubles in his own family. He also cooperates with other formations and took part in different projects. For example, he composed a song for the group NNP , or we can notice his participation in the Bratislava Beat Mass at the end of 1995. He was also offered to compose the music for the film Tu Ziju Levy of director Jozef Holec, but because of lack of time Erik had to decline it. He also started a solo carrier besides his duo with Barbara. ). He composed a song called Vianocny Cas (Christmas time) which became big Christmas hit and on March 3rd 1998, his first album Just The Music was released.
Apart from music Erik loves cars : 'I would turn my head to see a nice car as I would to see a nice girl.'. He himself owns a black Pontiac. For him, spending money is enjoyable :'I like to spend money for good wear and good food : there is nothing better than a 'yummy' pizza. I'm glad I'm not dependent on money; money is here to be spent.'
However he didn't give up his studies. On 2nd October 1996, only three days after finishing recording of MC Erik and Barbara's new album Second Erik successfully completed his study at the University of Agriculture, Nitra. He spends most of his time in Prague, where he has found his girlfriend.
2016 : MC Erik either performs solo as a DJ, or tours with a new frontlady : Ivana Poláčková (winner of real-TV show Môj najmilší hit in 2007) during 90s festivals
2017 : MC Erik released an album gathering 7 of their old hits, re-recorded with new singer Ivana Poláčková, a new song featuring Ivana : Is This Love, and 4 new tracks with another singer called Petra.

Slova Lyubvi (2001)
Natali Artemova (real name : Nataliya Artsiomava) is a jazz singer born in Mineralnye-Vody (region of Stavropol) on November 8th 1969. She then settled in Borisov with her parents and did musical studies at the conservatory of Minsk. At the age of 22, she became solist in Belarus national Orchestra.
She was the first vocalist of the D-Bronx & Natali project. " These times, I do not remember living at home. My son was little, my parents lived in Borisov, and in my rented apartment in Minsk there was always a huge suitcase standing, ready for packing, with which I traveled all over Belarus. We are constantly invited to the TV", she reminds, " We signed a major contract in Moscow, we have already programmed the price tag and a series of concerts at clubs. ". But the businessman Valery Bujak, the project's sponsor, was arrested in June of 1996 and imprisoned for 10 years for financial fraud. Natalya was deeply shocked by this news. They were pennyless overnight.
Later on, Denis announced her that the project was splitting. Natali explained that she later found out that he was tourning with a new Natali, who was lipsyncing over her vocals. She was herself advised to do the same, to tour under the name D-bronx & Natali : "Take yourself another Di Bronx and drive on a tour". She got sick.
She decided to start all over again, and this time alone. Her parents even had to sell the apartment to help her launch her new solo project. Songs were written by Leonid Shirin, aranged b Maxim Aleynikov. She planned to entitle her debut album Ta Samaya Natali. 80% of the material was already written but the album was finally never finished.
2001 : she released a solo-song : Slova Lyubvi (Words of love) which entered national top 20. In July, she was invited to take part to a collective concert called "Slavonic Bazaar" in Vitebsk. Di Bronx and Natali were also a part of the lineup. And when the show was finally broadcasted, she was shocked to find out that her part had been cut off...
Then she met a French manager and moved to Paris. It was tough at the beginning, since she did not know how to speak French. She sung 2 years in a club, then entered the conservatory at Radio France, studied at the Sorbonne University, and even took parto to a lyrical competition at the opéra Bastille. Then, she entered the cabaret Rasputin, singing Russian classics with a dozen of professional musicans, and gaining the status of European artist. She is now known as Natali Art.
2005 : she toured in France, appearing in many franco-russian events, as well as the most glamorous hotels in Paris : Plazza Athénée, le Napoléon, le Royal Monceau...
2008 : she finally released her album Par-delà les frontières (Beyond Borders), subtitled "La voix venue de l'Est" (the voice coming from East) and founded her own company with a French partner. She is promoting other artists and also runs a vocal school for children.

Dancer and singer Frank Romero originates from Huelva in Spain. He left the city where he was born to begin his carreer in Locomía. The legend says that he attended a casting for a TV-program and that he was spotted, and ended strolling the fans. Nowadays, after some times, he started a solo career and released an album called My Personal History, which among others contains a cover version of Gloria Gaynor's I Will Survive. He changed his style but does not disavow his past sucesses : for him becoming a star is having one's own themes, and what is more important, taking one's own decisions : he wants to controls the totality of the creative process.
He teamed up with the Spanish Dance producers Pedro Del Moral (pioneer of house and acid in Madrid, who also took part to the team of Rebeldes sin Pausa and stood behind the projects Tridimensional and Además) and David Ferrero, who stood behind projects such as PM Project, to create ASAP. Jordi Sánchez and Miguel Arjona were also part of the group.
The group featured Jam-Pol, who appeared not only as singer, but also as composer, writer and co-producer for the tracks Ke No Pare (Don't Stop), Nena Tu Eres La Bomba (Nena You Are The Bomb) and No Cambies (Do Not Change). The female vocalist of ASAP was called Yilena Giusti, a former model. She appeared on tracks such as Imaginate. She released recently a solo single called Cómeme A Besos (Eat Me With Kisses).
1999 : ASAP released a best-of album entitled Grandes Exitos Y Remezclas.

André Tanneberger, who stands behing the ATB project, was born on the 26th Febuary1973 in Freiberg (Thüringen). In 1984 his parents moved to Herne, West Germany in order to find better opportunities. In the end of the 80s, Andre went almost every week-end to the Tarm Center in Bochum (where he works now as a resident-DJ) to listen to the DJ sets of Thomas Kukula (who would be well-known on the Eurodance scene for standing behind the General Base project). In 1992 he began to compose his own music in his bedroom, with the help of an Amiga computer and a small keyboard.
Thanks to a good friends of his, he became acquainted with Thomas Kukula, who was amazed at André's first attempts and offered him to mix and give the final touch to his first tracks in his studio. There André was able to use a lot of equipment, among which a Synthesizer Sequential Pro One, to which he owes its first project's name Sequential One. In February 1993 the first Sequential One single entitled Dance was released. Gradually, André began to build up his own small recording studio.
Sequential One are the exotic Morpha who does vocals, Spacekid, the Dutch DJ weirdo Woody and Andre as creative brain and rapper. Their first big hit was My Love Is Hot, a progressive dance track from 1997. This track was followed by the great tracks I Wanna Make U and Dreams. In 1998 Sequential One released Imagination, which was not very successful. After that the album Energy was finally released. Meanwhile released the solo-singles Fiestas in Mallorca and Time Now. With the release of the album a new single was released, entitled Inspiration Vibes, without Morpha, but with the typical Sequential One sound. The latest single is Angels, a great trance track.
The real break-through for Andre was the track 9 PM (Till I Come), released in 1998 under Kontor records. The catchy rhythms, the pitch slide effects and the little sonar effect turned out to be very popular. They became the main characteristics of ATB's next releases and of some of his (re)mixes. The tracks origin is that he was showing a girlfriend around his new studio at his home and he started to turn on his instruments and play them. He started to show off and got carried away. He was playing with the synthesizer and an amazing sound came out, (which is now the guitar riff on 9PM). He forgot about his girlfriend and started playing the insruments and created the track. 3 hours later, at 9PM he finished the track. That's where the title '9PM' came from. The 'till I come' bit(s) in the song were the 'till I come' in the title. The success was huge all over the world, the single was even # 1 in Israel.
With his second single entitled Don't stop André entered all the most important charts, for example it reached position # 3 in Israel. This two hits allowed him to have his talents recognized and to release his first album Movin' Melodies (which was also released under different names, such as Dolphin's Mind and varying contents). The lady who sings in Don't Stop and 9PM (Till I Come) is called Yolanda Rivera, and the man whose voice is featured in Killer is Drew Williams.
In 1999, he contributed to the welfare project United DJs from Central America with the single Too Much Rain.
Meanwhile, André had became well-known as a remixer : he did remixes for Eurodance artists such as General Base, Fun Factory , Black Baron , Haddaway , U96 , Sash! , Bass Bumpers , Real McCoy , 666 , Damage Control , Thea Austin and more recently Blank & Jones, Enigma, William Orbit, Texas, A-Ha, Future Breeze, Miss Jane, Kosmonova, Ayla and the United Deejays For Central America (Too Much Rain). Some of his remixes were gathered on CDs such as Dream Collection '99 and Music So Wonderful. He also kept on DJ`ing in many clubs such as the Riu Palace (Mallorca).
The third single to be released was Killer. It was a cover-version of a track by Seal/Adamski initially released in the early 90s. This track contained some captivating beats and basslines and combinates the orginal sounds with some new ones. It peaked # 4 in UK. In June 2000 ATB took part to the Essential Festival in Brighton (UK) with many other techno stars such as Fatboy Slim or Armand van Helden. He also picked up the award for the best single and the best newcomer in the1st Dancestar Awards (organzied by World Online).
The following single to be released was entitled The Summer, from the second album Two Worlds (a double album, which contained 21 tracks, out in September). The following single was called The Fields Of Love, it was a co-production with York (the project of Jörg and Torsten Stenzel). Collaboration with two such greats from the dance scene meant that the new song was a guaranteed hit. Effectively it quickly already reached # 3 in Israel and was # 16 in UK. The follow-up was Let You Go, reaching #34 in UK and #9 in Israel.
Followed the single Hold You, released in November 2001. The new album was set to be released on January 28th 2002. It was called Dedicated and it included the latest single-release You're Not Alone (an remake of Olive's former hit) which peaked # 21 in Israel.
2002 : ATB took part to the Dance United project, created to help the victims of the floodings in Germany. They released a single called Reach Out on the 30th of September.
2003 : after the track I Don't Wanna Stop, ATB's new CD-maxi was released in June under the label Kontor. It was entitled Long Way Home. It included remixes from Steve Murano (who has just released a remake of Passion), among others.
2004 : ATB's new single Marrakech was released on the 19th of March. New album of ATB will be called No Silence. In July, ATB's new single single Ecstasy was out. It peaked #1 in the German DJ playlist, while the previous single Marrakech reached #14 in the US Billboard Hot Dance Music.
ATB will become the first German artist to release a single exclusively as a download. Here With Me, the third track to come off the Top 10 album No Silence, will be out on 4 October. After the first two singles were sold as regular physical products, the artist and record company have agreed to use only the digital sales route for the third single. "This is the age of download shops and we simply want to show the way. I believe it's very old hat to curse technology. Instead we should use it to our advantage," commented Andre Tanneberger on his decision.
From 4 October 2004, Here With Me will be available both as a bundle (incl. single, two club mixes and the bonus track IntenCity) and as a single track. Incidentally, Here With Me also heralds the new ATB mix compilation ATB – The DJ (In The Mix) 2 that goes on sale on 15 November. Club mixes of Here With Me are, of course, also available on vinyl for DJs.
2005 : ATB contributed to the collective welfare project Dance United Help Asia, for the victims of the flooding. He released in the single Believe In Me featuring the voice of Jan Loechel.
The follow-up single was Humanity. It was at first released as 2 vinyl, the first one being released on July 6th, containing a Rank 1 remix, the track Funaki (Woody Van Eyden remix), and an Alex Morph remix. 2 days later, a second vinly was released, this time containing the Original club mix, Energy mix and Album Finished mix.
Humanity was included on the best of album Seven Years.
2007 : ATB released a new single featuring Heather Nova entitled Renegade. The forthcoming new album was entitled Trilogy. ATB's next single Feel Alive was in stores on July 27th 2007

ATC was a euro-trance project directed and produced by Alex Christensen (U 96, Rollergirl...) in Hamburg, Germany. ATC means "A Touch Of Class". Members were Joe Murray (born July 5th 1974 in Christ Church, New Zealand), Tracey Elizabeth Packham (England), Sarah Egglestone (born in Warrandyte, Australia) and Livio Salvi (born January 25th 1977 in Italy). Most of them had already worked together in the music Cats, and were discovered by Thomas M. Stein.
Their first single Around The World (La La La La) was an instant hit : it stayed #1 during 7 weeks in the German Charts and was played 1500 times in one week on German radio. It peaked # 1 in Israel and # 15 in UK. It sold gold in France. Around The World was actually a cover of a Russian song called Pesenka released in 1998 by the project Ruki Vverkh (Hands Up in English), and which had already been a big hit in there homeland. The video was shot at the basement of the International Congress Centre in Berlin. ATC released their first album Planet Pop, recorded at Rosengarten Studios and Kingsize Studio, in February 2001. It was renamed A Touch Of Class for the Canadian market. ATC received an ECHO for Best Dance Act.
The follow-up to Around The World was entitled My Heart Beats Like A Drum. It was also very successful. The video was shot in August 2001 at the Cinelicht studios in Hamburg. The following single Thinking Of You was shot in a castle in England. For this single they used a sample from Jacki Graham's 1986 hit Breaking Away.

The next single will be entitled Set Me Free (and not Call On Me), planned for 3rd of June. ATC also released a new single with Karaja called She Moves (La La La).
2003 : after being sued by DJ and producer ATB, ATC had to change their name into A Touch of Class and recorded a new single called New York City.

ATK Project is a trance project produced by Philippe Meisburger. It was given up in 2001 because no distributor could be found. More recently, Philippe Meisburger composed songs for Maryleen Bay, as well as Cindy Sander's summer hit Papillon de lumière.
Dominique Atkins was born in the Middle East and raised in South London, where she cut her musical teeth on the classic jazz she heard from her father, a jazz trumpeter on the London pub scene. She counts among her earliest influences such jazz greats as Peggy Lee, Carmen McRae and Sarah Vaughn, and incorporated much of their rich and resonant styles when she began performing ballads in local niteries at the tender age of 13.
It was only when she left home, striking out on her own to pursue her musical dreams, that Dominique began to experience, for the first time, the seductive sounds of contempoary rock, soul and dance music. By that time, Dominique had begun to write her own material, bringing together her diverse strains of creative inspiration, while working a variety of odd jobs to keep body and soul together. "I've been a dishwasher, waitress, receptionist," she confides, "but I always comforted myself that I was doing research for songs. I couldn't just sit in my bedroom and write."
Dominique contributed to Eurogroove's Scan Me in 1994 and to the album track Don't Keep Me Hangin' On.
It was in 1995 that Dominique first crossed paths with Oakenfold and Osbourne, who were on the lookout for a fresh young talent to both write and perform on a new dance music project they had in mind. The creative fit was perfect and before long, the trio, now known simply as Grace, rocketed up the charts with Not Over Yet.
After many hitsingles and an album, Grace stopped to exist in 1997. Paul Oakenfold couldn't combine it with his DJ Schedule anymore. Dominique went further with Jazz music.
In 1998 : Dominique appeared on Elevate's single Next Life that she also co-wrote .
In 1999, she co-wrote and featured on Tilt's hit Invisble. She also contributed to Nevada's AM/PM.
In 2000, Dominique created Ursula's World with Mal Scott and Martin Freeland. They released a single entitled I Will Be With You. She appeared as guest on the Space Brothers ' Manifesto album (whe did vocals on the track I Still Love You).
In 2001, Dominique Atkins contributed to Mekka, a Jake Williams (JX) project. One single was released : Diamondback.

Enchanting Girl (Jan 2009)
Being formed in September 2004 by Andy Matthew (fr. Australia) and Movin' Marty (fr. Czech Republic), Atlanteex was first known for the online release of their first song, Little Elli Is Breaking My Heart, which became an online hit and was later released in Germany by Rotschelli Music and received lots of positive feedbacks.
Shortly after, they noticed that their song had been published by some audio pirates in some CDs all over Europe, but as a song of a Russian band named Plazma. Plazma announced the truth quickly but this event proved the fact that Atlanteex’ music has outstanding potentialities to become very much successful, so Andy and Marty considered that incident as a promotion chance and made up their minds to improve their music and make it real big.
Atlanteex are now back after 5 years with 2 new singles with amazing hits like Online Love Affair and Feel Atlanteex In Your Heart at variety of dance genres, including Eurotrance and Electro House.

Records company : Byte records. The producer behind Atlantis 6 is Peter Bellaert, also known from the group NRGY with hits like Jump Like A Monkey and Dripping Wet. The singer was Niki, aka Tricky Niki (real name : Els Mortelmans). She often co-wrote the lyrics.
When she was young, she started to dance at clubs. After a while, she got a contract with 2 Fabiola as a dancer. While performing for 2 Fabiola, she got interested in deejaying, so she bought her first vinyls and began spinning.
Atlantis 6 first single The New Style became a big club hit. It was licensed in Spain under the label Temprogressive.

David Atterberry a.k.a. MC A.T.B. (no relationship with Andre Tanneberger) was Masterboy's first rapper. He was author of all rap lyrics on The Masterboy Family album, rap performer on all the tracks of that album, excepted on Shake It Up And Dance.
David reminds of these times : "When I was with Masterboy we did just that one album. I had a pretty good time with Masterboy, but I wanted more. The songs didn't have the messages in them that was in me.
We did the one album with I believe two singles. Keep on Dance'n and Indian Grave. They did a re-mix of other songs but there was only one video which played on MTV from Keep on Dance'n. The video was shot in London, I was not happy about the video. That's just my opinion, I thought that we could have done more with the video than we did.
There was a couple of TV shows we did I don't know if any of the performances were sold as a video. As for interviews most of the time Enrico and Tommy were the one's requested to do the interviews. That was cool though. We did a Bravo show in 1991 in Bonn it was great, aside from TV shows we didn't do much travelling.", David says.
David later wrote raps for Comico Base's Chico's Dream.
David explains : "Things in my life began to change and I was not fulfilling all that I knew was in me, so I decided to leave to go and search for what it was I needed to do to be fulfilled. I have not seen Tommy or Enrico in years, although I know where I could find them. Now the music that I am doing now is fulfilling to me. It's life to me and for those that will hear it. I don't just enjoy what I am doing, it's my life".

Broken Wing (2004)
Thea Austin was born in Pittsbugh, PA. She has been fronting bands, among them Snap, and honing her vocal skills since she was in her early teens. Her want for vocal success brought her to Los Angeles, looking for a recording contract. She started out performing in bars and clubs then soon began gaining session work as a background vocalist.
Also a talented writer, Thea's love of music led her to a position as a staff writer at a major music industry magazine. She then got a taste of the business of promotion and hype, as well as insight into the workings of major labels and the shaping of new artists. Her contacts continued to grow. She did demos with such writers as Samm McKinney (Patti Labelle, Anita Baker) and Stephanie Mills. She started getting album credits with artists Bernadette Cooper and Christopher Williams."I was too comfortable at the magazine. I was wearing golden handcuffs. I had a successful career as a writer while trying to maintain one as a singer. I knew I was being sidetracked and had to dedicate myself fully to singing." she explains.
That drive led her out of the country to Japan, where she opened the Club Blue Note and had the opportunity to jam with such artists as McCoy Tyner and Dizzie Gillespie. She spent almost a year in Japan, growing as a vocalist and experiencing new cultures. Upon returning to the US she immediately began work on a solo project. An accomplished lyricist, she penned songs with several successful producers. Her travels led her to Penny Ford, the former lead singer of Snap, who was working on a solo project. She sensed Thea's talent and introduced her to the Snap organization. Thea was whisked to Germany to begin work on Snap's album The Madman's Return together with the rapper Turbo B. She not only sang, but co-authored many of the cuts. Once the album was complete and the single released, a video was shot and a European tour planned.
As the lead singer of Snap she took the world by storm. The first single, Colour of Love soared into the top ten across Europe and reestablished Snap as a force with which to be reckoned. Thea began playing in venues from Italy to Germany, Turkey to the Red Sea. Suddenly, she was catapulted to international stardom. The second single Rhythm Is A Dancer was even more successful, taking a firm grasp on the number one position on numerous Billboard charts, including the Eurochart, Hits of the U.K. and charts in Germany, Italy and countless other nations with the video landing at MTV Europe #I. But, as always, she wanted more, so she left Snap in 1993, being replaced by Niki Harris.
"I have been very blessed to have such success with Snap across the globe. I cannot count how many lessons I have learned and how much total experience this has been. But I will not be satisfied until American success comes as Well. I want to do well in my own country, a country I have come to appreciate so much more now that I have been away so many times."
Her personal music is message driven, as she tries to combine the best of today's sounds with lyrics that sky a little more than what is on the surface. Thea is always working to expand her horizons. Not only a vocalist, she is an accomplished lyricist and producer. She sung lead vocals on Turbo B's I'm Not Dead. She did co-writing and producing numerous tracks for her solo project Cutoff (together with 2 German producers T. Copperfield and T. Noise). The style was great eurodance, reminding a little bit of Snap's Rhythm Is A Dancer. It was released in 1993 and had great succes in the Dutch and Israelian top 10. The second single You And Me was released in 1994, another great euro very successful in Holland and Israel.
Then in 1995 she became the voice of Cymurai. She also did background vocals on Engelbert Humperdinck's album The Dance Album. She collaborated with Karel on Live To Tell and Turn It Up.
Thea once again showed her skills by writing on cuts for Turbo B.'s solo project after he stopped his own group Centory. The same year, a single entitled Let Go was released under Thea's own name in 1996 and was remixed by ATB.
Among her other hits were the #1 Then Came You (with The Spinners) and the Grammy-winning That's What Friends Are For (with Gladys Knight, Stevie Wonder and Elton John), as well as, Theme From Valley Of The Dolls, I'll Never Fall In Love Again Alfie, Anyone Who Had A Heart, Heartbreakers, and the Grammy-winning I'll Never Love This Way Again. Her voice was featured on Heart Attack's single Eye Of The Tiger. She earned seven Top 40 singles in the Eighties alone, among them collaborations with Luther Vandross, Johnny Mathis, and Jeffrey Osborne. Overall, she's garnered one platinum, five gold albums (including 1985's Friends) and five Grammy Awards.
1999 : Thea was featured by BFL on You Won't Know What Hit Cha, a more downbeat single. She also worked with Soul Searcher on Can't Get Enough (which had a lot of success) and Do It To Me Again (# 32 in England).
2000 : Thea worked with Thunderpuss on the single I Just Wanna Be Your Everything.
2001 : in the US she recorded tracks under the name Pusaka featuring Thea Austin. The song I'm Addicted To You (aka You're the Worst Thing for Me) was written by Thea, Chris Cox and DJ Irene, and then remixed by Chris Cox & DJ Irene. It had been heralded as THE anthem for the summer 2001, and was rushed out as a remix single on May 8th, by Tommy Boy Records. "DMA Magazine" gave this new song 5 Stars, and when it was tested at the Winter Music Conference in March, it turned out to be a smash hits with the DJ's ! It zoomed to the top of the Billboard dance charts, and became #1. It could be heard on radio, and on the hit TV shows "Queer as Folk", and "Sex in the City". The other song Thea recorded, Being Without You, was scheduled to be released in the UK this summer.
2003 : Thea's voice was featured by the project Full Intention for the house single Soul Power.
2004 : Thea still seems to be under contract with Snap, at least for TV appearences. Everytime Rhythm Is A Dancer is needed, Thea can be seen, wearing extravagant top hats.
2006 : Thea released a quite confidential album entitled House It Up. She also planned release a new single entitled Delight In The Light Of Life in September. Then a new album Acoustic Austin could follow, at the beginning of 2007.
2009 : Thea was featured on DJ Bill Bennett's first album Big Muscle Of The Rhythm.
In May, she published a new track on her Myspace. It was entitled Put My Feet On The Rock and it was a slow rock track. In July, she teamed with Natural Born Grooves and the result is a song called Bad Bad Baby.
Thea used to live in Philadelphia, PA.
