Dancing With Tears In My Eyes (1995)
Cabballero was created by the musician Ja'Ma (Jama Johnson). The project was produced by Cabballero, R. Ribeiroa (Ronald Bähr) and Ricco Raggazzi. Rumors said the project featured the voices of the rapper A. Godwin and the female vocalist Linda Temple. This was false. According to the booklet of the album, the members were Serena M "Pearl" (rap, background vocals, performing), Kristy B (aka Kristina Barth : background vocals, performing), Zlata K "Swat" (background vocals, performing, dancer). The singles were released under the Shift Music label. Actually the voices belonged to the studio vocalists Christina Safrany and Sara Pola.
The group started back in 1994 starting with the euro-trance style hit Hymn which was a cover version of the 80s group Ultra Vox (originally released in 27th November 1982). Hymn was released in France under the Do It Music label. It entered Top 10 in Israel (more precisely # 4) and Germany, and peaked # 1 in Spain and Italy. Rapper sounded a little like Deon Blue from Pharao (whose team did a remix for the song). After this great success the producers decided to keep on making euro-versions to the Ultra Vox hits.
The next in roll was Dancing With Tears In My Eyes, released in 1994, which also was top ten in Israel (# 4 once again), Spain, Italy (# 2) and Germany. It was so successful that once again a remixes CD was released (with a Rave remix, a Tears remix, a Goa remix and a Girls remix).
After that in 1995 came the 3rd single, Love Is A Shield, a cover of the Camouflage group (a German Depeche Mode-like band), a great eurodance hit which was # 1 in Israel dance chart, # 1 in Italy, # 5 in Spain and entered the Top 20 in Germany. The CD included a B-side entitled Mental Trance. Then they released their debut album in 1995, called The Elements.
The album included the original euro hip-hop title Teardrops and a feature
With An Attitude. These 2 tracks were re-released under K-Town Records, launching the start of the Girl Talk project, which featured Cabballero's original dancers Pearl, Zlata and Kristy B, along with Colin Eley. Lover With An Attitude received much airplay and became a radio hit prompting a remix and U.S. release in 1999
The next hit was Faith Is Rising which wasn't as big a hit but still entered Top 40 in Germany, Spain, Austria, Italy and Belgium.
The last single from the album was released in the beginning of 1996. It was a European hit but failed elsewhere in the world. This single was called Nanaya and was sampled from Israel national anthem.
Cabballero took the success of his name and live performances throughout Europe to new heights with a follow-up from his track Teardrops into managing other groups which resulted in creating a new sub label for Shift Music called K-Town Records. This is how they brought the first successful European hip-hop group, Down Low, to the German public. The Cabballero team also did remixes for projects such as Ryan Paris, Sonic Beat - I Can Fly, Samira's When I Look Into Your Eyes or Unlimited Nation's single Move Your Body.
2001 : Cabballero came back and released Dancing With Tears In My Eyes 2 on October 30th.

Candee Jay is a project of the producers Pronti and Kalmani (Alice Deejay). It features a solo vocalist, known under the name of Candee.
Candee was born on September 1st, 1981 and was raised in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. She was an extraordinary kid with enough self-confidence to know exactly what she wanted to become when she grew up : a star! She started her career by joining the ballet at the tender age of five. Whenever there was a table in somebody's living room, Candee would use it as a toy stage and start singing and dancing for everybody in the room. Besides standing out in her singing and dancing, she also proved to be multi-talented by modeling and acting in her early teens. Candee Jay continued to work hard and finished her education in several forms of music and dance. After that, she did not have to search for a long time for the right people to work with. Award-winning producers, Pronti & Kalmani, discovered her during one of her performances. "She's the type of girl that just can't get enough of entertaining people. That is one of the main reasons why we love working with her” they say. Together they are now working on the highly anticipated debut album. "It's going to be very special and very personal, with a large variety of songs. It's not only a great album to dance to before you go out, but also something that you want to listen to when you feel emotional" Candee avows. "My first single is called If I Were You and is about how lost you can feel, when your heart is in someone else's hands. It makes you want to scream: "If I were you, I would never let me go..."
Fans all around the world are discovering the magic of Candee Jay and her music. "The dance music culture has become universal; it's colour-blind and brings people together from all nations. I'm very proud to be a part of this movement. I love to see people party to my music, no matter where I go. I think it’s the best feeling in the world. Give me a beat and I start dancing..."
August 2003 : If I Were You was featured on the compilation Trance Party 3, which stayed in Billboard Top Electronic Albums top 10 after more then 6 weeks.
November 2003 : If I Were You was officially released in the US.
2004 : the follow-up single was entitled Back For Me. Her debut album Electrifying was released.
2005 : Candee Jay released her thirs single Lose This Feeling. The video was shot in the Dutch Caribbean, on the sunny island of Curacao. Bringing all the film equipment to the tropics did bring some problems at the customs; the whole crew was arrested and after everything was checked they could finally start the shoot. The next day it was even headlining the local newspapers! During the filming Candee fell in love with Sasha and Sarah the two dolphins. Saying goodbye was very emotional. The filming took 6 days because of the extreme conditions. Besides the burning heat of the sun the crew were also in the middle of heavy rain fall, because of the rain season...
In April, the single was #1 in Music Week Breakers Chart in the Netherlands. The singles was released in the UK on the 16th of May.

Capital Sound hails out of the National Capital Region of Canada (hence the name, Capital Sound). Nathalie Page took part to the first album, with Katt (real name : Céline Guindon), Baby/Bit Burn (born in Hull, he is the 25 year old songwriter, keyboardist, bassist, and occasional vocalist for the band as well), and Toasted Morgan (who is the band's main producer, songwriter, and keyboardist). Entitled Sussex Drive, it was produced by Michel Picard and Luc Dubois. Rocko T. Bello took part to the lyrics. It did very well in Canada and many singles were released I Can't Wait, Love Comes Around, In The Night, Desire, and Higher Love. On the night of March 26th 1995, they won the Best Dance Recording Juno award for Higher Love. Two of their other songs were also nominated in that same category. The competition was fierce, since Jann Arden, Temperance, and West End Girls, were among the nominees. Capital Sound also won the Cheer DJ Pool award in the 1995 Top Canadian Dance/Club Artist category. They also walked off with yet another award for Quebec's Record Pool's Best New Dance Group in 94.
Afterwards Nathalie decided to leave Capital Sound and pursue a solo career. Donna Pearson was the main vocalist for the second album. Produced by T. Morgan and Baby Burn, it has a very different sound from the previous one. All the tracks are mixed together, with no pauses between them.
Capital Sound appeared on the scene again with their brand new single, the powerful Give A Little Love. They followed that up with Feel The Rhythm which truly showed off the highly energetic style that has made Capital Sound's sound. But the release of Taste of Honey's Boogie Oogie Oogie was a major turning point in Capital Sound's growing process. They experimented with the new wave of electro-influenced house that once revisited, made projects like Planet Soul & Jocelyn Enriquez so in demand, but they added their own little twist that really sets it apart from their trademark sound.
Afterwards, the group split up. Katt releasead a solo album entitled Libre (means Free in French).
2005 : Bit Burn is currently working on the project of creating a Captial Sound best of DVD.

Cappella Double Remix (Feb 1998)
Move On Baby (Mike Candys remix) (4th Oct 2019)
Producer : G. Bortolotti. Musical team : Max Persona, Lorenzo Carpella, S. Zucchini, B. Guerrini, S. Paganin, D. Leoni, M. Picotto...
Cappella is not a band formed just a few years ago : its inception dates back to 1975. Only at that time, the name was different : The Cappella-Project. It started as a group of song-writers that created songs for other artists. Like the well-known Let's All Chant (Move Your Body) performed by the group Go... The hitsong Mallorca was shaking British dance floors for quite some time. This song was performed by Lewis Lovebump. And if you listen to the song Bauhaus (a.k.a. Push The Beat) you can hear the trumpet: that comes from another Cappella-Project tune, Papa's Got A Brand New Big Pag. And of course there were more hits like Transformation with the brilliant DJ Pierre Trance Mix, Six Days, Moonday and Dirty Games (1st U Got 2 Know). The name Cappella referred to Italian Renaissance Frescos and Chapels, and was chosen to evoke the idea of rebirth.
But... Suddenly The Cappella-Project stopped, and the only person left was Gianfranco Bortolotti. He was leading the Media team, when in 1987, with the vocalist Ettore Foresti's collaboration, he created the track Bauhaus/Push The Beat, which had great success in clubs all over the world, entering many of the European charts, including the UK Top 50 ! Bauhaus is a song reminiscent of the late 70's disco. About a year later the track Helyom Halib (sampling Yello's Goldrush and LNR's Work It to the Bone) was released, which turned out to be a major stormer, reaching very high positions in various international charts, including the UK Top 10. This chronicle of huge success was to continue with such massive tunes as House Of Al Kali, Be Master In One's Own House, House Energy Revenge, Get Out of My Case (where, according to some, we can hear for the first time Kelly's voice) and The Rotation Of The House. After that, Forresti was fired. The next tracks Everybody (sampling sounds from a single of Quadrophonia) and Take Me Away had huge success due to the use of a sample of Loleatta Holloway's Love Sensation by the Media team. Loleatta's voice was also sampled on a number of Black Box's tunes such as the massive Ride On Time and I Don't Know Anybody Else.
An unknown singer took her place, and in 1993, after a long break, the first commercial hit appeared, U Got 2 Know. Borrowing a sample to Ralphi Rosario - You Used To Hold Me, it became a huge hit in Europe, UK, and even the States (it went Top 10 in the UK and Germany, enetered the Top 30 all over Europe, went # 3 in Israel, # 1 in Italy). During live appearances, the vocalist Anna Ross was on stage to front the project. Song was used by the basket ball team the Houston Rockets for their starting lineups. Cappella was sued for using the distinctive riff from Siouxie & The Banshees Happy House without paying publishing, and they lost.
In the meantime, the search for 'the voice of Cappella' continued. Another singer, Salee, joined the Cappella team, and the same year (1993) we saw another hugely successful single U Got 2 Let The Music. But in the clip of U Got 2 Let The Music, one could already see the future singer Kelly Overett. U Got 2 Let The Music reached the top 10 almost everywhere (reaching # 3 in Israel, # 2 in UK being their biggest hit to date there, # 1 in Italy and Spain, # 1 in the Billboard dance chart, # 3 in the MTV Europe chart). But according to the rumors, Salee didn't like doing video clips, so she had to leave Cappella. Then Kelly became the new frontlady, and Rodney Bishop the rapper. U Got 2 Let The Music contained samples taken from JM Silk Let The Music Take Control, originally released in 1987. The melody reminded of Alphaville's Sounds Like A Melody.
The Ace of Cappella tracks was undoubtedly Move On Baby. Released in 1994, its powerful, racy and melodic theme took it to number one in the UK, the Euro Sales Chart and a number of other countries! Following that, Media released the dance floor's most eagerly awaited album of the year, U Got 2 Know. From the album, U & Me and Move It Up were released in 1994, and both repeated the massive success that Cappella were becoming accustomed to. According to rumors, vocals belonged to Eileina Williams.
The radiomixes of the Cappella singles differed from country to country (the videomixes are all the same !). They were adjusted to the style which was 'hot'at the moment of release in a country. Move On Baby's version that was released in Germany, the UK and most countries was more Techno-like. But the Dutch/Belgian and French radiomix (actually the Mars Plastic Edit) has a more 'commercial' (but nicer) Eurodance sound.
Raps on Move On Baby and U & Me weren't actually done by Rodney, but by Dutch rapper DJ MC Fixx it (he later confirmed it officially), who previously had a big success with a remix Twenty 4 Seven 's I Can't Stand and who was also the rapper of Anticappella's Move Your Body. American singer Vicky Shepard complained about the fact that the voice singing U & Me's chorus was his own voice which had been sampled from one of her own singles Love Has Changed My Mind which was released in 1992. She tried to take a legal action but in vain, because U & Me was released worldwide, US excepted, so the American laws could not do anything for her. She has never received any vocal credit or financial restitution of any kind. It is also said that the 49ers vocalist Ann-Marie Smith can be heard on many of the Cappella singles. Cappella singles also borrowed many vocals to Angie Brown.
Kelly and Rodney did a lot of tours and gigs all around the world, appearing on the stage of not less than 3 editions of the Dance Machine concerts in Paris, France. Success of the project was so huge that several fake cassette albums were released in Poland. These albums (entitled Everybody's Free or U Got 2 Let The Music) only contained a few real Cappella tracks, along with other Italian artists tracks wrongly attributed to Cappella.
Then 2 singles at the same time were released : What I Gotta Do and Move It Up. What I Gotta Do (strongly inspired from the melody of David McWilliams's The Days of Pearly Spencer) was probably only released in Japan. Move It Up featured vocals by Jackie Rawe. Then in 1995 the last single featuring Kelly Overett was released. It was called Don't Be Proud, but she had already left the band at the end of 1994 (as she announced it in an interview on the French radio M40). The rumor is that Kelly Overett was fired because Media wanted a 'real' singer in the group. It is a fact that when you listen carefully to her solo release Follow Your Heart her voice is totally different from all the Cappella singles on which she is supposed to sing. According to rumors, vocals on Don't Be Proud belonged to Eileina Williams.
Rodney Bishop was also fired in the first place, and Patrick Osborne took his place (with a singer called Suzie ?). Patrick Osborne was from the boy band called Worlds Apart (and rapper for the group Patric). Allison Jordan was chosen from thousand other vocalists. When she joined Cappella, Patrick Osborne was still there. They both recorded a song which title is unknown, this was released as a single in Italy before Tell Me The Way was released. It is said that this single was so weak that it was even not played at the local radio stations. Afterwards Patrick Osborne left Cappella and Rodney Bishop came back.
The absolutely massive Tell Me The Way (with its melody reminding of Terrorize - It's Just A Feeling and sampling Pamela Fernandez - Kickin' In The Beat) was released which had great, and well deserved, success in the Italian official charts, and a large number of other countries. In January 1996 Cappella released I Need Your Love, it immediately climbed up the club and sales charts. They also released Back In Your Life (Some people say this single is released in Japan and others are saying it's from Australia) and in the summer of 1996 they released their second album called War in Heaven, and then in the fall they released their single Turn It Up and Down, a superb track in a typical Cappella style. They also released Don't Be Proud and Another You. According to rumors, War in Heaven was almost completely recorded before Kelly was fired, so it probably only contained a few songs really sug with Alison's voice. Zeitia Massiah did background vocals on Do You Run Away Now?
In May 1997 they released a single called Be My Baby in most of Europe. The single U Tore My World Apart was only released in Germany. In Scandinavia the single Do You Run Away Now was released, and in Holland the single The Big Beat was released. This single have a double side with another song from the older album Helyom Halib, called Be Master In One's Own House and previously released in 1990. Both singles weren't good enough for the hitlists and become big flops.
On 25 February 1998 the long-awaited new album was released in Japan with the title Cappella, including 14 songs. Also there were rumors about Rodney Bishop leaving the band, although one could see him at the live concert they gave in Japan. Afterwards, the rapper and producer Tiziano Pagani took his place. Tiziano also produced the single U Tore My World Apart and Bortolotti was only the producer of the Pagani Mixes. You can hear Tiziano Pagani also on the Pagani Remixes on the single Be My Baby, and in the remixes and mixes from Take Me Away, because they were only produced by Tiziano Pagani.
Confusion about the different Cappella releases continues... On 1st of June 1998 a limited edition 12' Vinyl was released in Italy at BXR records (which is only a DJ label Promoting). The single is entitled People Of Love. Then, 3 singles were released at the same time in different countries, U R The Power Of Love in Germany, U Tore My World Apart '98 in Scandinavia and Throwin' Away in Japan.
Maybe the promotions for the new Cappella singles and CD's aren't good enough, because U R The Power Of Love didn't make the hitlists. Afterwards, U Got 2 Let The Music '98 / Leave It was released. Very weird single, the track Leave It is without any rap or singing from Allison, Tiziano or Rodney, but with only a voice saying 'Leave it'.
March 1999, Gianfranco Bortolotti announced that he didn''t work on the Cappella project anymore, and that there would be no new releases by Cappella probably this year. He added that only when he would have some time, he would do some work for Cappella again. Some time later, there were rumors according to which there would be a new Cappella project with 4 well-known eurodance stars.
In October 2000 there was a message on the Official Media Records website announcing 'The Return Of The Media Star : from Media Recording Studios is ready a new bumper sound, emblematic for the history of dance music: the new Cappella single. The title is unknown but the style is very happy energy massive. Stay in tune for other Cappella news'. But somehow this message was deleted several days after it was publicized...
October/November 2000 sees the spreading success of a song released by the techno project Freeze. They have released an trancesong called 2 Know and it uses the sample '... U got 2 know how you make me feel...' This song was one of the themesongs of Love Parade 2000 and has already hit top 20 in Belgium. Other countries like the Netherlands are expected to follow soon. The hit U Got 2 Let The Music was also covered by a project named Max Deejay.
October 2001 : another comeback rumor... Cappella would be back with a new single, title still unknown. According to Media Records the single would be released in almost every European country. In November the info was confirmed : the new single will be a remix of U Got 2 Know. It was planned for January 2002, would contain a remix by Gigi d'Agostino and other Media Records DJs. Actually... But its release was delayed.
2002 : in July a whitelabel (12" vinyl record with several mixes, but without the official artist name) was released by Media Records, called U Got 2 Know 2002. In August the vinyl was released officially by Warner Music in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. In the middle of September this release would be available on CD-single released by WEA.
October 2002 : according to some rumors, Cappella were in studios again. Nobody knew who would be the performers. But Media records had promised a next single, a really totally new one and not once again a remixed version of the old hits. An entire album was even planned, depending on the success of this next single. But once again, nothing came.
December 2003 : after another year of silence, once Media records promised the return of Cappella. The new single, entitled (U R An) Angel ws said to be planned for January 2004. The new members of the group (according to rumors) would be called Jessy M and the new male singer would be called Dave Bee. There won't be any rapper.
2004 : the release of Cappella's new single was postponed to April 2004. Fans were losing hope again when... the first demos came out ! Contrarily to the first rumors, the brand new single featured female vocals and a rap as well.
2005 : a Cappella's best of CD+DVD is planned to be released under ZYX Germany this summer. It will be entitled Best Of / Greatest Hits / Definitive Collection and should be available around August. But Media Records Italy still hasn't confirmed this DVD release. The album War In Heaven was re-released in Germany on the 6th of June.
2006 : a new version of Cappella's U Got 2 Let The Music called Technical remix was planned to be released on a compilation.
2007 : U Got 2 Let The Music was covered by Tyro and released in France under Cyber Prod
2009 : U Got 2 Know was covered by the project Dubguru.
2010 : ZYX planned to release some new Cappella remixes on June 25th : U Got 2 Know 2010 and U Got 2 Let The Music 2010, both as maxi-vinyl. Move On Baby was covered by Dj Antoine.
2011 : Cappella's CD album The Remixes was re-released on Juno last August 8th. In December, Cappella released a new single : Power featuring Bootmasters. LMFAO's hit Party Rock main melody had some similarities with Cappella's Tell Me The Way.
2012 : U Got 2 Let The Music was covered by Mastermind DJ feat. Lareine. A Dutch booking agency called International Artist feature a duet of performers under the name Cappella, available for half-playback gigs.
2013 : Cappella project is back with 2 new faces, an English married couple : singer Lis Birks, aged 20, from Werrington, and Marcus Birks, aged 28, from Leek. They used to be the members of projects The Cameleonz that they founded in July 2006, and it's under this stage name that they had appeared on stage of real-TV show Britain's Got Talent in May. The new Cappella formation was presented on November 2nd during Go 90's concert in Enschede (Netherlands)

This Canadian project is built around the Polish born Captain GQ. As a young boy, Mark Burzych (real name of Captain GQ) was greatly influenced by his father, a noted drummer in his own right, and by the many musicians that he was introduced to. In his mid-teens, Mark began DJ-ing in clubs and at events in the Toronto area. His goal has remained the same throughout his career : "to create my own music with my own style".
In 1995, Mark started collaborating with his first producer. Together, they recorded his first album entitled Here I Come. Three amazing eurodance singles were released from this album under the Numuzik label. Rockin' Through The Night (with vocals by Karine Leblanc), Here I Come and Come On And Dance were very successful on the overseas charts.
The 1996 tour in support of the album Here I Come, found Mark touring and perfoming with great euro artists such as Dr Alban, Le Click, Real Mc.Coy, JK, C&C Music Factory, Black Box, and La Bouche, performing in New York, Chicago, New Jersey and Detroit. Mark recalls it as a great experience : "to be performing with these artists was an inspiration to me". In 1996 too, Mark received a Certificate of Nomination from the First Annual Cyberspace Euro-Energy Awards as voted by dance music fans and DJs from around the world and carried out entirely over the Internet.
Shortly thereafter, Mark started working on his second album entitled Take A Chance, which he wrote and produced on his own. This album was released in 1999. The first single released from Take A Chance was Spring Love, which also topped many dance charts.
Mark's style has attracted a steady stream of budding and established recording artists, seeking him out for his studio savvy and musical smarts. Ultimately, Mark opened his own recording studio, Clear Sound Productions Studio. When not on one of his busy tour schedules, Mark can be found there, recording and producing various dance artists and developing new material for his own repertoire.
2002 : Captain G.Q. was working on his third album called Feel So Good.

Tony Dawson-Harrison was born in Newark, New Jersey in 1962. He spent the first year of his life in New York. Then his mother died and his father left him with his sister. They spent 2 years in Detroit in orphans institutions. Then Tony began a life as a streetchild, made a few money as breakdancer, and finally joined the army at the age of 16. He came to Germany as a soldier with the US Army in the 80s, near Frankfurt then in Nurnberg, and began to work as a choreogropher. His nickname Captain Hollywood was given to him by his military friends in 1982, because he danced even when in uniform.
During the week-ends he used to go to discos, that's how he was spotted by Andreas Thiesmeyer, producer of the TV-show Formel Eins, who immediately wanted to work with him. He did choreographs for La Toya Jackson and CC Catch and even went with them on tournee. He appeared in German cult movies (such as Macho Man) with famous boxers, and represented Germany in Cannes in 1984 for the breakdance movie premiere of Beat Street. He also contributed to increase breakdance's popularity in Germany.
Meanwhile he was a member in the competition juries for breakdance. That's how some of his colleagues suggested to Tony that he could sing. 3 singles, which entered the Clubcharts, came out. Among them was Grand Piano, on which he appears under the alias of The Mix Master. It was a hit, reaching #4 in Great Britain, # 2 in France and # 10 in Germany.
In 1987 he met the producer Ruud van Rijjen and together with the female singer Nance they established the group Twenty 4 Seven. The first hit I Can't Stand It reached #7 in the UK chart and #1 in several European countries. He also took part to their first album. During 3 monthes they toured with MTV Europe, sponsored by the watch company Swatch.
That's how he began his cooperation with the two german dancers. Hanks (Giovanni Falco) & Jacks (Wolfgang Reiss), who followed him when he left the project in 1989 because of a disagreement with Van Rijjen.
In 1988 he released a vinyl single in collaboration with BPM (no relationship with the German project) : Jaybee / Tribute. It was produced by La Fong at Preussen-Studio, Berlin-West. Label : P1 Records.
He signed at the 'Get into magic' label and started a new project with Nosie Katzmann and Giora Schein : Captain Hollywood Project.
In 1995, he contributed to an eurodance project name The Vision. This project only released 2 singles. He was also featured by Jenny J for the single Eat Me.
Captain Hollywood also owns a dance school, the Hollywood Dance Academy.
During the years 1999 and 2000 Captain Hollywood spent his time between his own studio in the Rhine country and the USA, where he worked with the HipHop legend Pete Rock and with Ol' Dirty Bastard. He made some mixes for the Dance HipHop duo R'n'G (Alex Christensen & Toni Cattania), the Dance project Black Bone (Another Day in Paradise) and even DJ Bobo. And he produced the youngest Shooting star of the ex-N'Sync-manager Lou Pearlman, the Boy Quintett O-Town. Especially for this a 48-people television team of the ABC channel, not forgetting an MTV US team, traveled to Germany in order to shoot a report which became a series with 12 million spectators weekly. Tony's last production was a single for Tiffany featuring Krayzee Bone.
He also provided the deep spoken-voice passages on the Ofra Haza song One Day from her album Ofra Haza. An interesting coincidence is that in this spoken passage Tony very clearly stresses the words "more and more", which was the title of one of his best-selling song.
2001 : Captain Hollywood is back ! He released his first new single Danger Sign under his own name since 1995, on May 14th. After a live show in Köln on the 20th of May, he took part to the broadcast "Disneyclub" on RTL on the 26th, and on the 3rd of June, he was present at "The Dome" on RTL II.
2003 : Captain Hollywood is back with a remake of Axel F. theme. He released it under the name of Murphy Brown vs. Captain Hollywood. The single is entitled Axel F. 2003 (under the label BigRoom). He reached #17 in the German DJ Playlist Charts (which has 200 places in total). Pushed by this success, he teamed up with Boom Boxx (Alex, Jesse and Max) and released Flying High 2003, an excellent remixed version of his old hit. Then in October, they covered the Outhere Brothers' track Boom Boom Boom, which was used as anthem for the German event Berliner YOU 2003.
2006 : Tony Harrison does not make records anymore : "I had a great time and a great career so im very satisfied with that" he explains. He is now vice-president of an American record company by the name of Skreem Records U.S.A in Orlando Florida, and they are currently working on projects such as 3rd Wish (a latino band), Patmoe (from the dirty South of Atlanta), and SKREEM.TV (the number 2 online streaming video channel in the U.S, playing 24 hours 7 days a week all of the best U.S videos from hiphop rock country pop RnB). He settled in St Pete Beach, a beautiful beach in sunny Florida, but he still comes from time to time to Nuremberg. He married his girlfriend Shirin von Gehlen.
2008 : Captain Hollywood released More And More Recall 2008. In September, Captain Hollywood teamed up with DJ Base from Dubai and in October, they just finished the new video to the 2009 More And More recall. The video was shot in his home town Nürnberg Germany. Captain Hollywood and DJ Base will be performing live on national Television in Dubai late october 2008.
Captain Hollywood has finally decided to go back into the studio and record an original track entitled Love Dot Sex.
2009 : Paraisko's did a remix for Captain Hollywood's hit : this is Only With You 2009.

This project was created in 1991 and build around the rapper Captain Hollywood. The name was a credit for his dancers and students in the videos. His new style was given the name "The Crew Lock", a mix out of military movement and locking. Cihat was given the name Jelly Jell and continued to keep The Crew Lock alive with a new generation of dancers
The first album Do That Thang was released in 1990 and was a big disaster, since Europe was not ready for hip hop style. 2 singles were released from it : Do That Thang and Shirley.
But in 1992 he released his first single from his forthcoming second album, More & More. A new style, Eurodance, and a new female vocalist : Nina. The success was great : it reached number 1 all over Europe, #5 in Israel, and entered the MTV chart number 3 in the European year single chart. It was followed by Only With You, another huge number 1 all over europe and #6 in Israel.
In 1993 the second album Love Is Not Sex sold 400 000 copies worldwide. The following single was All I Want, a pop-dance track that disappopinted some Euro fans. It did some well in the German charts and on MTV anyway. Released in 1994 with a totally new mix, Impossible was also a great hit which climbed high on Europe charts and reached #10 in Israel.
In May 1994, Rhythm Of Life was sent to many radio stations as a promo maxi. Among others, it included a remix of MK ( from the Nightcrawlers team). It was never officially released.
In 1995, after a year of silence, the third album Animals Or Humans was released. It sold 200 000 copies worldwide. Nina had gone for a solo carrer, being replaced by a new female vocalist named Petra Speigal. Tony established his own record company and studios called : 'Hollywood productions'. He teamed up with 2 new producers : Tom Jacques G. Coin (real name Thomas Keil) and Thorsten Adler, together with Attack II. Katzmann still produced 4 tracks on this album. Another contributor was Alex Belcher.
They scored another big hit with Flying High, n°1 everywhere in Europe and #6 in Israel. After that came another beautiful, fast-paced euro track Find Another Way which the same kind of success. The third single from the album was The Way Love Is, a little weak and disappointing compared to the previous hits.
In the middle of 1996 Captain Hollywood came back. He changed his company from Blow Up to 'Mighty'. He teamed up with 3 new producers : P Force, Miles Gordon and Alex Belcher and changed his haircut too... But Petra was still part of the team.Over And Over, the first single to be released from the forthcoming new album, was a very successsful euro track. The fourth album was released during the summer, entitled The Afterparty. It was released under the simple name of Captain Hollywood, since it was created without his dancers. It also means he wanted to open a new chapter in his career.
Afterwards he released his 2nd single, Love & Pain, in a remixed version. The album version was in the same style of Over And Over, but for the single and video version he teamed up with Masterboy and the result was simply amazing. Unfortunately it flopped in sales and in charts. Then Captain Holywood decided to anticipate the new trends and he released a last single, The Afterparty, once again different from the album mix. The single version was produced by Bulent Aris, who was the producer of Fun Factory. But once again it flopped all over the world, except in some countries such as Israel.
In the whole, this last album had no real success. Only 300 copies were sold. This is little compared to the total of 5 millions of discs sold since the beginning of his carreer. The story of the Captain Hollywood Project can be considered as over since Captain Hollywood has now gone solo. (see above)

In The Army Now (20th Apr 2018)
Change (15th Nov 2019)
Liza, Franky and the two producers Niebergall, Richard Witte knew each other from Frankfurt (Germany). Franky remembered from his earlier days during his time in the army that drill commands had something quite specific about it. He talked about it with Udo, and he produced a track with sharp dance beat. That's how everything started.
The concept of Captain Jack was quite original : Franky Gee (the rapper) and Liza Da Costa (the first female vocalist) were performing in army uniform. The idea of the hat Franky wore comes from a mix of the caps of the Russian and American armies. The design was inspired of the US-Marines, the color came from the Red Army.
In spite of attire, Captain Jack was far from being a militarist group. They sung about love and peace, with sound of army drill commands and a nice dance beat. They explained that they were soldiers of a dancefloor and their weapon was groove. They only joked about the real army. "When soldiers are doing drill, they move rhythmically and are very energetic. If you would place them in the dancefloor and start play the music, they would do quite good" they explain. In their opinion, "soldiers are good ravers but they do not know about it". Beside that, Liza simply liked uniforms.
They recorded a song called Dam Dam Dam (which was finally released under project name Fatima), but their first single officially released in 1995 was Captain Jack. At that time, Franky was not performing for the project, only writing lyrics. One of his friends Durban was credited for performing the raps and he was also on stage. With the group were three cute dancers : Yvonne, Sandra and Sabine.
In December of 1995 Durban left, and Franky decided to start performing. He did the raps on Drill Instructor which was released in March 1996. This song as well as Captain Jack were in their first album The Mission, out one month earlier. Captain Jack did an extensive tournee in Germany in the Summer of 1996, in which they promoted their third single Soldier, Soldier. Captain Jack and Drill Instructor were covered by SAIFAM project The General.
In the beginning of 1997 they released the new single Together And Forever that appeared on their second album released in March 1997, entitled Operation Dance. Followed the Madonna cover-song Holiday then the track Another One Bites The Dust, another cover-song (featured on Queen Dance Traxx compilation). Album track Secret Agent was also released as a single, but only in Japan.
1999 : Captain Jack came back with a new single Dream A Dream and a new female singer : Maria Lucia 'Maloy' Lozanes (22 years old). Among other musical experiences, Maria had previously done some backing vocals for the project Le Click. Eric Sneo joined the producers team. Dream A Dream did not have the success expected, anyway they released a second single featuring the Gypsy Kings : Get Up, second pre-release from the forthcoming new album The Captain's Revenge. The only performance together worldwide, took place on the the 17th July 1999 on the biggest German TV-show "Wetten, dass..." in the bullfight arena in Mallorca. Only You was the next single to be released.
2000 : Maloy left the group and was replaced by a new singer called Illi Love (aka Ilka-Anna-Antonia Traue). Meanwhile Captain Jack's carreer kept on in Japan, an album entitled Top Secret was released, with a single entitled Hi-Ho (coming with another track of the album Oh La La La). It was later revealed that Illi was only a lipsyncer, real vocals belonged to Dunja Koppenhofer who was credited as a background singer.
2001 : after over 5 millions CDs sold and 19 gold and platinum in whole Europe, Captain Jack were back once again ! Iko Iko was the first single to be released from the forthcoming album Top Secret. This album was at first planned for June. The videoclip of the new single was shot in Mallorca. The second single from the forthcoming album was Say Captain Say Wot. The album Top Secret was finally released but did not have that much success, it even failed enetering the Top 100. Meanwhile, during the summer, a Best Of album was released in Japan.
2002 : Captain Jack released a single duo with DJ Ötzi. They could be seen at the Apres-Ski Hits broadcast on RTL 2. The single did well in the charts. According to the official website, Captain Jack was already working on a new album called Party-Warriors. In July another single was released, called Give It Up. During the summer 2002 Franky escaped from a car accident and during his recovery wrote a book : RATTS (an action thriller about an anti-terrorism organisation).
2003 : a new single was release in February it was called Centerfold. The next album Party Warriors was first released in Japan in December 2002. It contained 11 tracks plus 6 bonus tracks. Then it was released in Europe in March 2003.
In Summer 2003 Captain Jack released their new single Viva La Vida, as well as Franky's book. In October, Franky recorded a song with another Cuban artist : Roberto Blanco. The song was entitled Ein Bisschen Spass Muss Sein (We wanna have some fun). It was featured on some DanceDanceRevolution compilation.
Illi Love got a role in the TV-serie Ein Fall für Zwei. She also played in Der kleine Zauberer and Verbotene Liebe, did a advert spot for the Lufthansa and another one for the Dresdner Bank-Spot, in collaboration with Günter Netzer.
2004 : Franky and Roberto appeared live on the RTL-II broadcast Apres-Ski Hits 2004. In March, they released their new single, called Miss Ibiza. It contained a B-side which is a cover of the old hit Blame It On The Boogie.
A new single entitled Samba Brazil and a new album called Music Instructor were released in October.
2005 : Illi Love was replaced by Sunny/Sabrina (real name : Sabine Repas). In June, after a 6 months tour, Captain Jack presented his new single Capitano during the TV show ZDF Fernsehgarten. Franky was working on a new album, and also busy writing a second roman. The title would be Silent Death.
2006 : On the 17th of October, Franky collapsed on monday at a party in Palma de Mallorca. He was taken to the hospital with the suspicion of stroke. He already had one 3 years before. In the night to friday 21st October, he fell into eternal sleep without ever regaining his consciousness, according to his ex-wife Daniela Schaefer.
Franky Gee's son took the alias "CJ Jr." to start his musical carreer. He released June 23, 2006 his first title called I Love Reggaeton (a cover of Joan Jett's I Love Rock'n'Roll), from his upcoming album Mama Ines. The future album will include songs in the reggaeton style (which was the style his dad had chosen for his first releases), as well as the song I Miss You, a slow rap in which Junior describes his feelings about losing his father.
2007 : Captain Jack are back with 2 new members called Bruce Lacy (born 20th April 1963 in Albuquerque, from a father who was a Jazz musician) and Jamie Lee (real name : Nadja Biereth). They started a tour in Germany. Some new songs were revealed in September : I Got You Rock and U Push It Up. The new album would be entitled Mission Completed, the style is now closer to RnB...

Caramell was formed by singers Katia Löfgren and Malin Sundström and producers Jorge "Vasco" Vasconcelo and Juha "Millboy" Myllylä. They sing in Swedish.
Vasconcelo was also writing e.g. La Cream's You and Dr Alban's This Time I'm Free. Jorge decided to establish a studio of his own in Västerĺs and left Dr. Records. The guys met Malin and Katia in November 1998 in a karaoke bar in Stockholm. Caramell's first singles Om Du Var Min and cover Efter Plugget were quite big hits in Sweden. Band's debut album Gott Och Blandat was released in August in 1999. From the album has been released as a single also Jag Ser Pĺ Dig in September in 1999. The last single to be released by this project was the very powerful Explodera.

Everytime We Touch (Hardwell & Maurice West Remix) (6th Aug 2018)
The music group Cascada is comprised of singer Natalie Horler and two German DJ/producers Yanou and DJ Manian. They gained worldwide recognition with their hit single Everytime We Touch. Natalie (often referred to as "Nat") was born in Bonn, Germany to English parents, on September 23rd, 1981. Due to the very English lifestyle her family lived, she learned both fluent German and English.
The project was originally named "Cascade", but was changed to "Cascada" due to legal conflicts. The name "Cascade" can be found on the first edition CDs and records of Miracle put out by the group by their record label at the time, Andorfine, but this error was soon corrected and the single was re-released under the Cascada name with new cover art. The original versions are now out of stock and production, and may very well be considered a piece of history in the long run. Cascada means "waterfall" in Spanish.
Yanou and DJ Manian create the beats and melodies that power Cascada's tracks. Another project that that Yanou, DJ Manian, and Natalie have worked on together is the "Siria" side-project, which spawned the singles Endless Summer and I Will Believe It.
Cascada's work includes Miracle, Bad Boy, Everytime We Touch, How Do You Do!, and countless remixes. How Do You Do!, a cover of the 1992 Roxette song, was released on November 19th, 2005. Robbins Entertainment released the album Everytime We Touch in the USA on February 21st, 2006. The album featured 14 diverse cuts, as well as covers of Savage Garden's Truly Madly Deeply and Kim Wilde's Kids In America (already covered by SEX Appeal).
Everytime We Touch was released in the United States by Robbins Entertainment in December 2005, and peaked at #10 on March 11, 2006 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, #5 on the Billboard Pop 100 chart, #4 on the Billboard Hot Digital chart, and #1 on the Billboard Dance Radio Airplay chart. Robbins has stated that they are excited by the success of this single without a ballad version to carry it on radio, even though after the Everytime We Touch album was released, stations also started playing the new Candlelight Mix. Everytime We Touch was covered by DJ Hush featuring Jessica Jay
The music video for Everytime We Touch could be seen on the Robbins Entertainment web site. The music video depicts Natalie in a library trying to loosen up her uptight work-aholic boyfriend, who is the librarian. At first Natalie creates quite a mess and ruckus in the library and causes distress among many of its readers, who eventually join Natalie and start to dance on top of tables. The music video was released in February 2006. By March 22nd, 2006 the video was in the Top 20 videos for the United States at Yahoo.com.
DJ Manian announced on his official website that the follow-up in Europe to How Do You Do would be A Neverending Dream. The next USA single was a new mix of Miracle, released for radio airplay on May 9, 2006
In 2006 too, Cascada has been busy touring America as well as Austria, Ireland and Germany. A part of the tour had to be cancelled in February because Natalie injured her feet.
Cascada was awarded Best New Dance Artist Solo at the Winter Music Conference. In April they also won the award for Best New Dance Artist Solo at the International Dance Music Awards in Miami.
At the end of September, their song Ready For Love entered the Hungarian charts directly at #6. Cascada's new single in the UK was entitled Truly Madly Deeply, a Savage Garden cover. A remix album was in the stores in November
Then Everytime We Touch was re-released in Germany, as vinyl in December, then as maxi in January 2007. Another remix album, this time containing version by Klubbingman or the Real Booty Babes, was released in March.
2007 : After its success in England, France and the Netherlands, Cascada released Miracle in Germany.
Cascada's second album was entitled Perfect Day, full of excellent dance and hands-up tracks just like the first album. The tracks Endless Summer and I Will Believe It were previously recorded by Natalie Horler and DJ Manian under the name Siria, therefore they should not be included in the US version of the album. According to rumors, and due to licensing problems, the tracks Sk8er Boi and Just Like A Pill could not appear on the US version either, replaced by 3 brand new tracks : Faded, Holiday and Dream On Dreamer.
The first single taken from it was What Hurts The Most (a cover of a Mark Wills song). In November, Cascada won the World Music Award for best-selling German artist. In December, Last Christmas was released only as mp3 on legal download portals.
2008 : The follow-up single is called What Do You Want From Me (it was at first speculated to be called Tell Me Why). Cascada is among the nominees of the European Border Breaker Awards at Cannes Midem on 27th January 2008. The new album was planned for release in France from February 11th, but was finally postponed.
Cascada is nominated in 2 categories (Best HiNRG/Euro and Best Dance Artist solo) at the International Dance Music Awards which will take place on March 27th 2008.
Bad Boy was covered by DJ Hush featuring Jessica Jay.
In December, Cascada released in the UK a new version of her album Perfect Day. Entitled Perfect Day - Platinum Edition, it includes a DVD with her live at Clubland 2008. Another DVD is planned for release in 2009, it should contain a concert from the Perfect Day Tour 2008, shot in Manchester. On November 7th, the classical version of Perfect Day album was released in the Netherlands.
2009 : Cascada's new single was entitled Evacuate The Dancefloor. It was released on 29th June (along with a videoclip shot in Los Angeles), with the album of the same name to follow 6th July. In spite of the real change from the usual handsup style, it was quite successful.
Cascada's next single from the new album was entitled Dangerous, to be released in the UK and Ireland only. She also launched an unplugged version of her single Evacuate the Dancefloor. The maxi CD was released official on 4th September. In October, she released in Germany a single called Fever.
2010 : In February, the video for her new single Pyromania was released. In May, Cascada won the Comet award for best female artist. The new single was entitled Night Nurse. In November, Natalie had to cancel some live appearances because she underwent a vocal chords sugery and was not allowed to speak during several weeks
2011 : In February Natalie Horler told in an interview on Capital FM that Cascada's next single will be entitled Enemy. Actually, Cascada's new single was entitled San Francisco and it was released in May. The new album was entitled Original Me. Her next single Au Revoir was digitally released in September.

A wonderful black voice, an imposing presence and fantastic dance qualities are all hallmarks of Clarence B. Milton. A star with international style.
CB Milton was born in Surinam, but he has lived in The Netherlands since he was six years old. In 1985 he got his Visser MAVO in Rotterdam. In 1987 he graduated from VHBO. He did not have the money for a proper musical education, so he was forced to teach himself the difficult profession of a musician. The prizes CB Milton regularly won at talent competitions encouraged him to go on, and finally he had enough self-confidence to make a definitive move into a musical career.
He learned the tricks of the trade working with the group Swinging Soul Machine, and became the youngest lead singer that the group had ever known in its twenty-five years of existence. CB also worked as a session musician for famous artists such as Madeline Bell and The Trammps. Through the bass player of The Trammps, CB Milton came into contact with the successful Belgian production duo Phil Wilde and Peter Bauwens. After seeing a performance, the spiritual father of 2 Unlimited, Jean-Paul De Coster, fell for CB Milton's talent. The rest is history.
Their first period of work together resulted in the release of a debut single Send Me An Angel, which has made people everywhere sit up this year. This number was in the charts for many weeks, amid rapidly rising international interest which culminated in a worldwide release. One interesting detail : during promotional performances on radio and television, CB Milton has consistently surprised friends and enemies alike by insisting on singing live, even though programme directors have often advised him against doing so.
The nine follow-up-singles (amongst them If You Leave Me Now, It's A Loving Thing and A Real Love) and two albums proved CB's talents. Most of them charted in his home-territory the Benelux and many of them became European airplay-hits (It's A Loving Thing, one of his best releases ever, reached # 3 in Israel and # 34 in UK). He now is a highly-respected natural talent, and takes to stage performances like a fish to water. CB had now sold over 500.000 records. It's A Loving Thing was covered by the Italian project Paul Barry. On stage, he came along with dancers Sylvana Simons and Iris Loppies.
If You Leave Me Now featured backing vocals from Johnny Kelvin and Ingrid Simons.
In 1998 CB Milton completed his third album From Here To There and currently achieved massive airplay on all these tracks in his home territory the Benelux. Get Into My Life, What About Me, and his latest release Carry On gave CB Milton the chance to project himself as a pop artist where in the past he was considered as a dance artist.
The last and fourth single from CB Milton's most recent album From Here To There was released in Belgium on February 15th 1999.
2001 : CB Milton released a new single in The Netherlands. It's a collaboration with the dutch trance-DJ Mark van Dale : a Discohousetrack uing the vocals of CB Milton. The title is Something Going On under the name of Mark van Dale ft. CB Milton. Stanley Foort contributed to the lyrics.
2002 : CB Milton released a new single called Friendly Morning Sky.
2007 : he took part to the multicultural project 08001 based Barcelona under his own name Clarence Bekker. On their album Voragine, he sung on the track Jungle, a combination of rock and world music.
2008 : he did vocals on Tikaro's single Shine On Me. He also contributed to a collective cover of Stand By Me by the Playing For Change foundation.
2011 : CB Milton's hit It's A Lovin Thing was remixed and re-released as Phil Wilde feat. CB Milton - Loving Thing
2012 : he released a new album under the name Clarence Bekker. Produced by Mark Johnson and Reggie McBride, this album was recorded in Groove Masters Studio in Santa Monica and in The Village Recording Studios in Los Angeles (California, USA).

Caroline Catharina Müller was born July 31st, 1964, in Oss (Netherlands), from a German father and a Dutch mother. In 1979, the whole family settled in Germany. In 1985 she becomes a member of the girl quartet Optima, 2 singles were released.
In 1985, she was discovered by Dieter Bohlen (Modern Talking ) in the "Talent Search" contest in Hamburg. Dieter liked Caroline's performance and immediately offered her musical contract and thus C.C. Catch was born.
For the next few years C.C. Catch ruled the dance floors around Europe and was appropriately named a "disco-queen". In 1989, after four albums and twelve singles, Caroline moved to England to continue her singing career without Dieter Bohlen. Andy Taylor (from Duran Duran) contributed to her 6th album. C.C. Catch's music followed similar style as Modern Talking. Nevertheless, she still made her original presence with some elaborate dancing routines.
Hits that made C.C. Catch popular include:'Cause You Are Young, Jump In My Car, Heartbreak Hotel, Like A Hurricane, Soul Survivor and some others.
2003 : after some years of pause to "concentrate on her spiritual development", she covered Was (Not Was) (with Ozzy Osbourne and Kim Basinger) song Shake Your Head, which was #34 hit on UK Dance Charts
2004 : CC Catch took part to to the real-TV show "Comeback - die Grosse Chance". She wrote and released the single Silence.
2008 : CC Catch was collaborating with Russian electronic music producer Dmitri Frolov on her new album. A single entitled Believe in Love was planned for release. Its first version was presented on a Caro's Forbes Club performance in Russia.
2009 : CC Catch is planning a tour in Romania.

Gianna Cerchier was born in Venice. She started to sing when she was a baby, also because she was used to listen to her mom singing in every single moment of the day. When she was a child she supported in the chorus of the church and for several years she has experienced live exhibitions in some Venetian clubs, performing soul and R&B songs with a 'cover band'. She proposed tunes of her favorite artists such as Aretha Franklyn, Janis Joplin, Tina Turner, Annie Lennox and obviously The Beatles (whom she has used to listen to from the age of 8 years old). As she was 10 years old, she moved to Toscana.
In the meantime, after the achievement of the Scientific 'Liceo' Certificate, she decides to enter the University, joining the Faculty of Psychology. Furthermore, she got brilliantly through the Conservatory entrance examination, but she chose to go in tour with her band instead of attending school courses. Her band played very different styles : rock-blues, jazz, boss nova, swing pop, etc, and she played in clubs in Veneto, Lombardia, and even Austria and Czechoslovakia.
In 1987 she began to made dance jingles for the TV Finevest (on the Italian television network Rai). She worked for a long time with the Italian artists making backing vocals in studio. Then from 1988 till 1992 she worked with Francesco Baccini, taking part to 120 concerts, the most important being Montreaux jazz festival : she won Jury Award. Then she took part to TV shows on the Italian television such as Fantastico, Festivalbar, Telemike, Serata d'onore, Ricomincio da 2, Domenica in, Viva Colombo, Radio Carolina, etc, then to video clips, and even a single for the Sanremo festival. She dedicated herself to singing with the Leonard Goodies & the Dixie Jam Band, and she participated on Italian Blues Festivals.
In 1996 she did vocals on No "Cindy" Joke single Don't Make Me Cry. In 1997 she met Kay M and an intense and highly professional collaboration, resulting in B-Charme's first single Wake Me Up.
More recently, she teamed up with Leo "Goodies" Boni and Blue Gadjo (a classic blues trio). She released an album with band Power Play entitled my SOUL is aLIVE
In the spare time, Gianna loves reading (last read book 'Spirito Libero' by Rosemay Altea), she likes working out and attends to aerobics courses. She has a wide range of musical tastes, going from classic to dance. Her biggest dream would be to sing in duet with Aretha Franklyn. If she hadn't love singing so much she would probably become a graphologyst (better definable as 'B-Charme choices enigma'). She strongly believes in love meanings : to love and to be loved, in simple and frank things, in poets, in music, in God. She loves to know that the day after she's going to have some spare time to spend for herself and she also likes breaking in laughs, travelling, the sea, summer storms, eating (she actually enjoys every kind of dainty food, even if she can improbably be defined a skilled cook). She mostly likes pasta and pastry, and she adores men and children with whom to prepare all these good dishes (especially if the assistants in question are her husband and her son).
She dislikes driving cars, answering to the phone, the Carnival, boxe, dentists and, above all, the narrow-mindedness. Her favorite colors ? Depending from the occasion: all of them !

Sandra Chambers was born in Birmingham (UK) on11th of April 1967. Her musical career began at an early age, when she and her brothers took part in talent contests all over the country, singing songs by the Jackson Five, Doobie Brothers, Three Degrees... She moved to Pisa, Italy in April 1992 to improve her Italian, during the last year of a degree course in Italian studies at the University of Lancaster, and sung in bars during her free time. After having successfully completed this degree, she stayed in Italy and kept her bars singer carreer. That's how producer Robyx spotted her and asked her to come to DWA studios because he needed a background vocalist. She read "Savage" on the business card he gave her and she wondered what kind of name is it... The first recording was We All Need Love by Double You. At that time, she did not even know what musical team she was working with...
This collaboration with the DWA Recording Company really launched her carreer on a professional level. She worked on Double You's first two albums We All Need Love (1992) and The Blue Album (1993). The project gave rise to two singles: Rock Your Baby (1992) and Gimme Some (1992), she also appears on the track I Gave You All.
She later went on to join the dance project Netzwerk, which found success with Send Me An Angel or Breakdown. She also sung as Jhava (Don't Tell Me Lies), Infinity featuring Sense (Baby Stay duet with William Naraine), Babyroots (Gimme Some, Rock Your Baby, Rock Me Baby), Tuttifrutti (Superboy duet with Alexia). She collaborated to the Corona project as studio vocalist (except for the first hit The Rhythm Of The Night) and that she also contributed to JK (her voice can be heard on My Radio). During 1993 and 1994 her musical experience widened with her embarkment into the field of jazz and also into the field of jingles - backing vocals for television and radio. After many other collaborations and recording sessions in and around Milan, in May 1995 she had the opportunity of working once again alongside Double You, on the chart-topping track Dancing With An Angel.
Her solo career started in 1994, when she recorded a single under her own name for Lupomannaro label : Everybody's Dancing. Then came Bad Boy under the name of Sandy, released in 1995 under DWA. The song reached the top 20 in Italy and was also released in many other countries. It was even covered by a project named Underground Hammer Man !
Her passion for singing and music in general is due to having been raised listening to Aretha Franklin, Marvin Gaye, Luther Vandross, Freddie Jackson... Her favourite contemporary singers are : Lisa Stanfield, Patty Labelle, Take 6... Her other passions, apart from music, are languages and dialects. She loves the arts in general and she is a very avid reader, especially for topics concerning psychology. She is not keen on any sport in particular and she describes herself as a very lazy person, who sleeps at least ten hours a night ! With regard to fashion, she tends to lean towards the "Hip hop american street wear" trend and she is also very keen on sportswear (adidas and nike), although not on sport...
In 1998, she did backing vocals for Alexia's song Bad Boy. Then she had a baby and stopped her collaboration with the Corona project. However, the new millennium resurrected her interest to dance music...
Sandra launched a new career in jazz music, and did commercials for TV and radio (she recorded I Can See Clearly Now for AXA in 2002, You Don't Have To Say You Love Me for Cornetto Algida, and did a duet with F.Arnň for the song Someday, for the Chrysler PT Cruiser in 2004). Sandra started working for Roby Benvenuto's company, recording many dance tracks for other markets than Italy. Then she signed a contract with X-energy records.
2003 : Sandra contributed as vocalist to KMC's single Get Better.
2004 : Sandy's voice was featured on Marco "Benny" Benassi's huge hit Illusion. Sandra's contributions to TV commercials were featured on an Italian compilation entitled Spot Grammy.
2005 : Sandy Chambers, took part to a 13-tracks album entitled Boney M remix 2005, along with Bobby Farrell the original leader of the project.
2006 : Sandy re-recorded Feel Alive, the new Benassi Bros.' single taken from the album ...Phobia.
2008 : Sandy Chambers recorded a duet with Dhany produced by the Benassi Bros, called Break The Wall.
2010 : In May, she recorded a song entitled Born to be free for the project La Maison Derriere. In June, she was featured on Mood Velvet's single Summer Of My Life and on Pro-Hunters's single Catch Me Now. Her next solo was entitled Cloud 9.
2011 : in April, Sandra Chambers posted pics of a recording session she did that month. But nothing came out do far...
2017 : since many years, she's been running a school in Brescia Vocal Project Comboni (formerly known as Accademia Franciscanum).
A top Italian producer once said to her "Sandy, you have a lucky voice. Everything you sing turns to gold!"

Channel X's first single Rave the Rhythm was ready after 2 days of hard studio work. As soon as the test pressing was made, they went and tried it in different discotheques and indeed, the audience went wild. In 1991 Rave the Rhythm had forced its way into the European dance charts, Channel X was touring all over Europe and appeared several times on television. It was taking up as part of the soundtrack of Paul Verhoeven's erotic thriller Basic Instinct.
Soon after the success of the first single the team went back into the studio to make the follow up Groove to Move. This adrenalin-stimulating record was licensed by PWL and became a top 40 record in the UK.
1994 saw the release of the first Channel X full album Take It To the Top. The single of the same name became a number one record in Japan. The band did some extensive touring in the land of the rising sun and became the leader of the Euro techno invasion. The succes in Japan was that big that the band invested all their studio time in the production of Japanese flavored techno songs.
In 1996 Channel X returned to Europe. The first new release was the single The Rhythm of the Night. The same year, Never Records US, released the album Tuned In, Turned On featuring all the Channel X classics and many new ones.

Swedish label Cheiron was founded by Denniz PoP (Dag Volle), Max Martin and Tom Talomaa. Formerly known as Swemix, they did not experience any bigger success as a records company, they tried different styles like traditional pop and hard rock. They realized that publishing records and albums was not their profession since most of the records were proven unsuccessful and financing music videos were too expensive, instead they started to concentrate on what they were really good at, to write and produce songs. So Cheiron became solely a music-production company: Cheiron Productions. They produced projects and artists such as 5ive, Ace of Base, Amadin, Army Of Lovers, Backstreet Boys, Bon Jovi, Boyzone, Britney Spears, Bryan Adams, Celine Dion, DeDe, Dr. Alban, E-Type, Gary Barlow, Herbie, Jessica Folcker, Leila K, LFO, M2M, Meja, Michael Learns to Rock, *NSYNC, Rednex, Robyn, Solid HarmoniE, Sound Factory, Vacuum and Westlife.
Founded in 1992 by Denniz PoP and Tom Talomaa, Cheiron Studios were located at Kungsholmen, Stockholm.
It closed in 2000, after Denniz's death. Max Martin and Tom Talomaa started a new production company named Maratone in January 2001. Cheiron Studios were renamed to The Location.

Everybody Get Down (1995)
Everybody Get Down (1995)
Take It Easy (Remix 95) (1995)
Cherry Moon was a French project produced by Pascal Henninot and Bertrand de Carey (B. Carrouée alias DJ Bertrand, who used to be a DJ on the French radio Skyrock). Take it Easy was released under MCA, Everybody Get Down under Joker Music - Musidisc France. The producers also stand behind the project Pussy, D:mention (You're No Good, released in 1995 under BMG France) and DJ Oscar (We will be Free, an eurotrance song sounding a little similar to La Vache by Milk Inc and Encore Une Fois by Sash). They also did remixes for Abyale (The Snooker) and Jordy.
Female vocalist Jennifer Jordan was born in Houston, Texas (USA). She started singing in a choir. A few years later, she became chorist in Feo Y Loco band, where her biological father played as a bassist. She then left to France. In Paris, she replaced the singer in jazz-pop band The Speak Easy. Then she became a member of Cherry Moon.
Bertrand de Carey kept awful memories of their collaboration with Cherry Moon. "My collaborator had told me : I found a great name for the group, we'll call it Cherry Moon. As for me, I did not know the existence of the Belgian club, nor of the Cherrymoon Trax project (a hard trance project whic just had scored a big hit with their single The House Of House), so I replied : OK, congratulations, you found a name that sounds greats". This is when people started asking him : "Is that a new Cherrymoon Trax single ?" that he understood this name would bring them troubles.
"Cherry Moon was refused by every label, but MCA and Christian de Tarlé who had just founded it", he recently explained on a forum. "Cherry Moon was manipulated by her omnipresent husband, and by the crook who owned the label Joker", he remembers. "They figured out they were getting spoliated, whereas this contract was excellent, given the fact that she was a total beginner". Because the single did not sell well, even if it was featured on many compilation, Cherry Moon sued her producers' team. The label tried to recuperate her by making the signing of Everybody Get Down under Sony Dance Pool fail. Everybody Get Down was finally released in Germany, but the project name had to be changed in a rush to Crazy Moon because Cherrymoon Trax was already quite well-known there.
Jennifer Jordan wanted to change her music style again. She met Viché de Vince and together they founded pop-rock band Mary Modified. They composed an album, one of the songs It Could Have Been Me, was used as theme for TV series La Ligne Noire, on French TV channel M6. Jennifer also recorded jingles and ads for brands such as Dior and Bouygues. She also writes songs for other artists. Some of the songs she co-wrote were used in French movies (Voyez Comme On Danse, Razzia) and TV shows. She still lives in Paris

Born on 7 April 1967, the Hamburg-based DJ/producer did his first musical production in a porno synchronization studio. This very first single unfortunately flopped. 4 years later he produced his first chartbreaker : Ritmo de la Noche with the project Chocolate (sung by Verona Feldbusch). In August 1990 the single, released Europe-wide, reached #23 in Germany and remained in the charts during 21 weeks. The same year, Alex Christensen produced a remix of the song Oliver Cheatham's Get down Saturday Night.
He got his first taste of fame in 1991 with his project U96 when he spearheaded that group's powerful techno single Das Boot, a remix of the theme-song from the German movie of the same name. This track became an instant smash in Germany and other parts of Europe. A string of albums and singles were released by U96 over the following decade, with hits like I Wanna Be A Kennedy and Club Bizarre.
In 1994 Alex's former girlfriend was running Warner Chappell, which looked after Frank Peterson's administrative company Petersongs. She knew that Alex was not happy with the people he was working with at the time and so she organised a meeting between the two producers. 3 weeks after his initial introduction to Frank, Christensen was offered the Marky Mark project and so Frank and Alex's partnership began with the album Life In The Streets. Alex's administration company was originally called Pink as reflected in that album's credits, but was later changed to AC Music. Alex Christensen does not play any instrument but, as he himself says, "I learned through the years how to love and cherish computers".
In the same year Frank and Alex also formed the group PeCh featuring Chris Thompson, which released not only its branded singles but also under this name the duo provided various remixes for other artists. Peterson later invited Alex to co-produce tracks found on Sarah Brightman's Fly and Question Of Honour, and Princessa's Calling You.
In 1995, Alex Christensen produced the single Baby I Need Your Lovin, under the name of Wave Kid. Featuring a solo male vocalist, the style was between Inside Your Dreams and Club Bizarre.
As producer and composer he also worked for Tom Jones, N'Sync (If Love Is Blind), Oli.P and Marianne Rosenberg. He also did remixes for Jean Michel Jarre.
In 1997 he started his collaboration with Tony Catania and the group R'n'G (Urban/Motor). Together they released the singles Rhythm of My Heart (#35 in the charts, 12 weeks of presence), Here Comes The Sun, (#21, 23 weeks of presence). The next year came the succesful single Open Up Your Mind (#14, 13 weeks of presence), followed by the top 30 single Can't You C, I Love Your Smile (#47), Darlin' I Think About You (#73) and Tequila (#97).
Frank Peterson and Alex also worked on the Bravo All Stars single Let The Music Heal Your Soul which was written by Alex. At the end of 1998 he also produced Rap Allstars single Last Christmas (a remake of George Michael's song).
In 1998 too Alex created his own label Kingsize as well as the euro-pop project Rollergirl. Many hits followed : Dear Jessie (#13) then Luv You More in November 1999, then the album And The Party Keeps On Rollin and the single Eternal Flame.
Under the alias Don Alesandro Vito he produced the single Bis In Die Ewigkeit of Löwenherz. He also collaborated to La Luna and the album In der Höhle des Löwen.
2000 : Alex Christensen produced E-cyas single Are you Real ?. But his biggest success of the year was producing the album Planet Pop for pop-dance group ATC. Their first single Around The World had sold worldwide 3,8 million CDs. Alex Christensen received the Echo award for being "most succesful national producer" of the year in Germany.
2001 : he started collaborating with the group Right Said Fred. He was also jury member for the real-TV show Popstars, and produced the Brosis first single I Believe.
2002 : Alex Christensen won the BMI Award for 2.500.000 radio plays in America for ATC's Around The World. Alex created a project under his own name called Alex C. The featured vocalist was Yasmin K, another Popstar-made artist
2003 : among Alex's most recent productions were Jose Carreras and B3. It was also the year for a new U96 release : We Call It Love.
2004 : Natasha Thomas became one of the artists produced under Kingsize.
2005 : Alex produced the Canadian crooner Paul Anka's single Eye Of The Tiger. Kate Hall also became a new artist produced under Kingsize.
2006 : after 3 years, Alex Christensen decided to record a new U96 single.
2007 : it was time for a new Alex C single. Featuring Yasmin Knock, this time renamed Y-ass, it was entitled Du Hast Den Schönsten Arsch Der Welt (meaning "You have the most beautiful ass in the world"). It was a hit in Germany, reaching #1 in the sales charts.
2008 : The follow-up was called Doktorspiele and it was out in Germany on 18th January. The next single was entitled Du Bist So Porno.
2009 : in May, Alex represented Germany at Eurovision Song Contest 2009 with singer Oscar Loya and the single Miss Kiss Kiss Bang, a mix of swing and dance music, with special guest appearance of Dita von Teese. Alex was again a member of the German Popstars jury. In November, he finally released his last and long-awaited collaboration with Yass, Dancing Is Like Heaven. Yasmin Knock plans to start a solo carreer, still produced by Alex.
2010 : in March, Alex recorded a new single, a cover of Roxette's Listen To Your Heart. He produced former American Idol candidate Clay Aiken's recent album Tried and True. Songs on this album are covers of classics from the 50s and 60s.
2011 : Alex's new project is called Jasper Forks. After River Flows In You, the next single was entitled Alone. He started working on the album That's all Forks to be released as Jasper Forks.
2012 : Jasper Forks, his current project, released a new single entitled This Club Is A Wonderland. It was featured on compilation Top Of The Clubs Vol. 54. in April, Alex Christensen signed a record deal with Kontor. He announced that he was doing a break with his current Jasper Forks project, and that a new Alex C single was on its way, planned for release end of May

Heaven Must Have Sent You Back To Me (1991)
In 1991, 21 year old David John Cicero, singer and keyboard player, was the first signing to Pet Shop Boys new label Spaghetti Recordings. Born in Deanport, Long Island, USA in 29th May 1970 of an Italian-American father and Scottish mother, he had left the States at an early age moved to Scotland where he attended school. The proximity of the school's playing fields to "Hearts" football ground guaranteed, as with all his contemporaries, that he became a seriously enthusiastic football fan.
By the time he was fifteen Cicero had formed his first band with some schoolmates,
practicing in the local snooker hall. On leaving school, Cicero managed to keep
body and soul together with a variety of jobs, everything from waiting tables
at the Hilton to apprentice joiner.
However it was music that was to remain the driving force in his life. His unquestionable song writing and vocal talents made him something of a "local hero" in his home town of Livingston,
where he regularly plays to audiences of three to four hundred.
The all important break came when Pet Shop Boys played the "SECC" in Glasgow, presenting Cicero with the golden opportunity of passing his demo tape to Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe. "I was playing one of my demos to some friends in the car. I put it in my pocket but I never thought I'd hand it over to anyone. But when we got into the place I saw Peter Andreas, who was their personal assistant at the time, and gave it to him." he explains. They were impressed ; impressed enough to want to fly up from London especially to see him perform live. Their journey was not in vain as, despite being "nervous as hell", Cicero turned in a performance outstanding enough to secure that magical first record deal.
His debut single Heaven Must Have Sent You Back To Me, produced by David Jacob, was out on 12th August 1991 through Polydor Records.
His second single was Love Is Everywhere. "It's about one of my ex-girlfriends who mucked me about a bit", Cicero tells. Actually, the previous single was also about her... At this time, he still hadn't had time to get a driving license. Released in December 1991, it reached #19 in the British charts in February 1992 and #8 in Scotland.
In 1992, came the single That Loving Feeling. The video featured the football team sponsored by the Pet Shop Boys : PSB Riverside. It went #41 in the UK #12 in Scotland
Then, a remixes CD maxi of Heaven Must Have Sent You Back To Me was released in July, it contained a new Cicero instrumental Jungilism. A cheap video was filmed in Chris Lowe' hometown, Blackpool, partly on Chris' own handheld camera. It showed Cicero dancing on a beach under the pouring rain. The video was shown twice on The Chart Show (Major UK chart programme in the early nineties), but rather disappointingly, the single only reached #70.
The same year came the first album Future Boy, produced by David Jacob. It included all the previous singles (Heaven Must Have Sent You Back To Me was remixed by the Pet Shop Boys), as well as two instrumentals composed by Cicero, Cloud 9 and Sonic Malfunction, which he produced himself : these 2 tracks were added at the last moment.
Live For Today, the next single, featured the vocalist Sylvia Mason-James. It was the theme tune to a movie called The Crying Game directed by Neil Jordan (which won an Oscar). It was released in November.
In 1993, Cicero started writing new songs, along with Sylvia Mason-James. He also learned how to play the guitar.
In 1994, Cicero was signed, through Spaghetti, to EMI records. He decided to get a singer, and after advertising in MixMag and SKY Magazine he auditioned many vocalists. "He has written some great new songs," says Neil. "The best is yet to come," nods Chris. An album was promised for 1995. He supported Take That on their UK tour.
After a long search, they saw a singer called Bianca on Stars In Their Eyes imitating Mariah Carey. She and Cicero recorded a song together, for release on Spaghetti, but then she decided that she was signing to PWL records as a solo artist so Cicero's record was cancelled. Cicero went back Scotland, his brother became his manager and he released a record which entered the Scottish dance charts
Cicero's first release after leaving Spaghetti Recordings was titled Don't Worry. Released on Clubscene Records (A Scottish Independent Dance Label) in 1996. The single was mainly instrumental with no singing from Dave, and included un-credited voice samples.
Cicero's next release was a cover version of an old Soft Cell hit called Say Hello, Wave Goodbye. This was a return to old form for Cicero, however it did not get country-wide acclaim. Also released in 1996, this single was a duet with the female vocalist and model Marianne. The B-side was another of Cicero's instrumentals.
Cicero's last commercial release was Summertime The track was co-written by Marianne Murphy, the female vocalist who sung the track. No Cicero vocals could be heard on this song. Released in 1997 on Acadamy Street Records, another fine track with Cicero taking a back seat as was originally planned for his work on his second album with Spaghetti Recordings. The release also saw a follow-up B-side to the one on Don't Worry.
Between 1997 and 1998 he recorded some tracks which were never released. Among them, an instrumental track called Vortex that he wrote and produced himself. It was a hard house anthem with a strong and bouncy "rave" style. There was also a track called 100's Of UFO's and a '97 version of Love Is Everywhere, which was a faster rave version of the 1992 hit single.
In 1998, he teamed with Deniece Dickson, a beautiful vocalist who had already provided the main vocals for many leading bands. Together they re-recorded Summertime, which reached #9 in the USA Club Charts. They toured with 2 dancers, Lesley and Jenna.
They were pretty succesful in the UK, they have received tremendous praise from Club and Radio DJ's who have heard their new tracks and they are attracting a lot of attention from the Continent and the USA. With Deniece, Cicero recorded some tracks which were finally never released : Night Train (a europop track), Wish (Version 2), Please Stay (a romantic song), Saturday Night (a disco track)
More about Cicero himself... His nickname is Cicero Kid. He has two older brothers, Michael and Steven. His parents are divorced. His father owns a barber shop in US. His mother now re-married lives in Livingston, Scotland. He has aYorkshire terrier called Mitzi and two goldfish, George and Mildred. He qualified in O level Art, O level Craft and Design. His favourite music group is Depeche Mode : "I've always liked electronic music" he explains. His favourite food is made of Kit-Kats and spaghetti (he hates brussel sprouts). He likes drinking chocolate milkshake. His teenage idol was Starsky from Starsky and Hutch. His favourite colour is black. His favourtie moive is Silence Of The Lambs, he likes Tom Cruise and Julia Roberts. He supports the Heart Of Midlothian (Hearts) Football Team. His lucky number is 7.

French DJ-producer Antoine Clamaran-Danzelle was born in 1964 in Villeurbanne or in Neuilly-sur-Seine (near Paris) according to various biographies. He started his DJ carreer in 1982 in the Whisky A Gogo. He played on radio stations, before becoming resident in the legendary Paris club "Palace" in 1991, where he played every Sunday with David Guetta and Laurent Garnier to run the "Gay Tea Dance". In 1992 he started producing together with Laurent Pautrat. They founded Clap production. Their first production was I've Got Music In Me by 400 Hz. Since then, he has had a huge number of releases and remixes. Among them, eurodance project O-Mega. Their singles went gold status in France (250,000 units) but didn't make any sales abroad. Some of their other productions were Les Surfers, Carol B and D-Plac. In 1995, he became DJ in the Queen, organizing the Absolutely Fabulous parties.
He hosted Extravadance on radio NRJ. He did remixes for Jean-Michel Jarre, Ricky Martin, Gloria Estefan, Dalida... He also remixed Indra's single Message For You.
1999 : he chose to come back to house music, leaving behind the commercial path laid out for him. He decided to produce tracks under his own name and oriented for the international markets : Do The Funk, Get Up and After, were written with the now famous "french filtered sound". With We Come To Party feat. Blue James (Basement jaxx singer), the filtered disco style of Clamaran, became an asset for the house community.
Antoine is now managing 4 labels, as producer and A&R, within Penso Positivo: Academy, North Club, House Trade Records and Basic traxx.
The leading single from his 2009 album Spotlight, Gold, reached #5 position in Russia and topped the Moscow Airplay Chart.
2010 : Antoine works with Soraya Arnelas for her new album. He featured her on his single Live Your Dreams.

Musical team : Skorsky/Beatboxking (first album) - Marshall, Corte, Williams / Bellotte (second album)
Rozlyne comes from Australia. She was born in Sydney, her father was an ingeneer, she has one brother who is 3 years older than her.
In 1990, she was playing the musical comedy "Cats" in Paris while a friend of her was auditioning for French producer Nicolas Skorsky. Unfortunately for her, she was refused but her friend presented Rozlyne. Success was immediate. Her first single Eddy Steady Go (recorded in only one day) was one of the year 1991's biggest hits (reaching #8 in the sales charts, and #1 in the clubs). Then came Gorgeous and Dancin' Is Like Makin Love, which both charted in France. Her first album, entitled Gorgeous, was produced in France by Nicolas Skorsky and Eddy Beatboxking (who also contributed to Indra's early singles).
A fourth single from the album was released in France in 1992. The Wizard Of Roz was one of Rozlyne's favorite tracks, as it was dedicated to her dad and she had co-written it. The song flopped, and has become a rarity.
In 1994, her singles were remixed by the DJ duet Unity Power and Eddy Steady Go '93 was once again #1 in the French club charts. Some excellent eurodance singles followed. Her second album was produced in Belgium, unfortunately it was not very successful.
Let-Motiv also used her voice on the single Ecoute Bien Ces Mots.
In 1997, she did a duet with Stevie H (who had already appeared on her previous single I Need You), entitled I'm On Fire / Quel tempérament de feu. This was her last single to be released.

When British DJ and producer Stu Allan turned up at Media Records saying "I've got an idea for a record" few could have foreseen that the idea would be the start of the career of one of the most successful pop-dance groups in the 90's -Clock. Why 'Clock'? When asked about the name Stu laughs "Why not? You remember the name don't you?! That's the only reason - it could be anything really!".
That first Clock single Holding On featured Media diva Ann-Marie Smith on vocals (as well as one of the following singles Whoomph There It Is, a cover of the Tag Team hit), and composed by Stu Allan, Bortolotti , Leoni, Persona and some others. Holding On was allmost a Cappella song... But with Ann-Marie's extensive commitments elsewhere and the demand for club P.A.s growing as the single took off, Stu and co-producer Peter Pritchard decided to form a more permanent ensemble to record and perform future Clock records. Several different performers were tried and even toured as Clock in those early days (such as Lorna Sauders for Everybody, Alison Williamson for the single Rhythm, or Georgia Lewis for Keep The Fires Burning), but it wasn't until 1994 that the production team found the two people who were destined to join the band full-time and take them to the dizzy heights of the UK Top 20 chart time and time again.
ODC MC and Tinka were the two hot new performers that Stu discovered. ODC MC was running his own dance troupe and practising his rapping on the side, and Tinka was a law student who just happened to attend ODC's classes. The two of them created a unique persona for the band and their live gigs were legendary, with recent PAs on the P J and Duncan (where they stole the show) and Smash Hits tours consolidating their live reputation and earning them the nomination for Disco Club International's Best P.A. of the Year award. In 1995 alone they played over 250 gigs in the UK !
Since the limited club release of Holding On, which went to no.1 in the Dance Sales chart, every one of Clock's singles has gone Top 40 in the UK National Sales chart (compiled by CIN) and 1995 has definitely been their year with three top 10 singles and a Top 30 debut album to their credit. In the end of 1996 they released a single called It's Over
In 1997 Clock first released a single called Don't Go Away. In November they released a single called U Sexy Thing, a cover of a Hot Chocolate song, which according to rumors was delayed to avoid a clash with a rival release by a project called T-shirt. An album called It's Over was also released. ODC MC collaborated with the project Tzant in the single Sounds Of The Wickedness, and the result was a top 20 hit.
In February 1998 Clock released a single called That’s the Way (I Like It) and it's a cover of an old song. In July the single Rock Your Body was released. An album called Boogiestand (or Boogie Sound ?) was released in Japan in 1999. At this time, ODC MC was replaced by a new rapper called Segun or Ché-Gun Peters.
1999 : Everybody was covered by the Swedish project Razzia.
In 2000 a sort of best of album was released in Japan, called Hits Around The Clock.
2009 : Clock re-released their hit Everybody in a 2009 version under Big In Ibiza Records. It is available as digital release only

Clubhouse is an Italian project of Media records. It was created during the early 80s, in the trend of the "medley" fashion. Their first single Do It Again / Billie Jean peaked to position #5 in sales charts. After a few hits (such as Superstition, a cover medley featuring Superstition by Stevie Wonder and Good Times by Chic, or I'm A Man, including samples from I'm A Man by Steve Winwood and Yeke Yeke by Mory Kante, and I'm Alone featuring Silver Pozzoli on vocals), the project was put aside.
1991 was the year of the comeback : Deep In My Heart, produced by Pieradis Rossini, remixed by David "Re Mida" Morales, conquered the American dance charts. It featured a sample form Deee Lite's single Power Of Love. In the UK, it was released with Cappella's Everybody as B-side.
Vocals in I'm Falling Too were done by Lance Ellington (He also give his voice to Sean Maguire on his album Sean Maguire, to Nicki French on For All We Know, to Deuce on No Surrender", and to Tatjana on her album Santa Maria).
The singles released between 1993 and 1996 featured the voice of a male singer called Carl Fanini. With him, Clubhouse entered the eurodance era.

Hands Up (12th Dec 1994)
Passion Of The Night (6th Nov 1995)
The man behind Clubzone was Mike Koglin who had been working closely with Logic Records since his first release dating back to 1988. Being a fanatic house music keyboardist and programmer, he moved from Germany to London in 1990 to pursue his professional career as producer and remixer. Since then his programming and remixing credits included names like The Shamen, Lena Fiagbe, The Sugarcubes, Bass Bumpers and Alison Limerick.
Clubzone is a team effort with late rapper Richy Lyte (whose work with the KLF and N-Trance needed no introduction). Nat Brown lent her vocal talents to Clubzone's Hands Up, after having completed an extensive world tour with Felix the previous year.
Hands Up was - as the title suggested - a truly uplifting Euro House track with additional club mixes and a special Alex Party remix. After successfully being launched on Ibiza this summer, it went Top 40 in the UK, and charted #1 at Hitmakers and #3 at Billboard in the U.S.
On year later, the pop/dance duo Clubzone hit again the chart ceiling with their new club thriller single Passion Of The Night on Logic Records. Nat was replaced by the gifted vocalist Beverli Skeete, whose credits include background vocals for David Bowie, Carleen Anderson, and Chaka Khan, as well as a current project with Tears For Fears. Ricky Lyte co-wrote Passion Of The Night with Mike Koglin, Clubzone's producer.
Passion Of The Night was a heat-driven, decadent, organ-rooted anthem that filled you up with contagious energy and hearty vibes! Included on the 12 vinyl and CD-5 are three mixes whose sounds vary from European Hi-NRG in the Original and New mixes, to fundamental house in the Beverli Does the UK Club Mix. Also included on the single, for nostalgic pleasures, is a bonus 1995 remix of Hands Up.
Ready for the streets and clubs on November 6, 1995, Passion Of The Night was destined to be a hot commodity this season ! In addition, a hi-energy video shot in the UK has been created to complement the vigour of Skeete's powerful voice and the overall intensity of Passion Of The Night.
Mike Koglin released his first solo single entitled On The Way. 2 years later, he released The Silence in 2000, a techno cover of Depeche Mode track.

Because The Night (1992)
There's Something Going On (1993)
The duo Cozzi and Rossi (Co.Ro). featured Taleesa on the version they had made to Because The Night. At the beginning they were about recording a song of Depeche Mode entitled Master And Servant. The female vocalist they had found didn't satisfied them, so they asked Taleesa who worked in the studio next to them for an audition.
Taleesa had already worked with Rossi on a single antitled I Say Yeah. In order to warm up her voice, she began to sing the first song she had in her head : it was Because The Night. Cozzi and Rossi were so impressed by the result that they totally changed their project : they kept Depeche Mode's theme but they added the lyrics of Because The Night. Taleesa's voice appeared also on There's Something Going On/I Break Down And Cry, and on the following album that Co.Ro released in 1993. Following the album, the single 4 Your Love was released. It reached # 4 in Israel. Then followed the tracks I Just Died In Your Arms and Temptation which never achieved the previous success.
After that, Co.Ro experienced other vocalists (such as Lyen for the single Run Away and Life On Mars). Ray Ronaldi also took part to the project.
2001 : Emmaneuel Cozzi is now one of the producers of the Pap's N Skars project.

I Need A Miracle (20th Jun 1997)
Get Over You (Jan 2008)
Kick Yourself (21st Apr 2008)
Let Me Take U There (29th Apr 2011)
Real name : Susan Brice. She began writing and performing her own songs at the tender age of 12, and had already made her first recording with a local famous producer at 15. By word of mouth, Coco became acquainted with several musicians wanting to work with her. At 16 she did an Art foundation course for one one year, then a two year National diploma in Art and Design which lead her to achieve a BA HONS Degree in fashion and textiles at the Bristol University. During this time, she managed to front an original rock band and 2 well known drum and bass groups
In 1992, she contributed to Sub Love One By One. She worked with many artists, such as Craig David and the Artful Dodger.
Summer of 1997, her solo single I Need A Miracle was released under Positiva and EMI. Then she was asked to sing a duet with former East 17 member Brian Harvey. Her next project was recording with DJ Photeck, which again did well on the drum and bass scene.
In 2000, it was sampled by Fragma on Toca's Miracle. The single was a hit. Coco actually never met the Fragma team, and it had never been a question of whether Fragma wanted her to front their group or not, she considered she was succesful enough as a solo artist. All the more that she thought that her vocal skills were more suitable for gospel, dance and funk, not really for trance music.
2008 : in January, she released a single called Get Over You under the name Coco Star. In March, the KLM remix of I Need A Miracle was released in England.
While Toca's Miracle was re-released, Coco tries to get credit for her contribution because she considers that it is not mentioned clearly enough on the single. She wrote that Damae was just an imposter while she was lipsyncing over her voice on stage and she would like to have the opportunity to perfrom the song again.
2012 : Coco did vocals for Tony Finger's single entitled You Can Party and for Manuel Costa's single Second Chances.
2014 : Coco was featured on Djkam's single Everything and on Mike Jolly's Give Me The Reason.
2015 : The Guru Project and Tom Franke released a new remixes package for Coco Star's I Need a Miracle under Pulsive Media

1981 saw the founding of the Coconut label in Hennef (Germany) by the producing and songwriting team Tony Hendrik / Karin Hartmann (aka Junior Torello) who are still in successful collaboration today. Back then Tony Hendrik, in particular, was already a well-known personality in the business noted for his flexible, resourceful creativity.
Indeed, he had already made it as far as Hamburg's Starclub with his school band Luniks. And with the Tony Hendrik Five, he formed one of the top German beat bands with numerous international single and LP releases. The single The Grooviest Girl in Town even achieved the honour of being one of the most played singles on Radio Luxembourg's international programme ! Tony Hendrik embarked upon his production career at the Deutsche Vogue record company. When no singer could be found for his first German-language song Julia, he stepped in without further ado and catapulted himself into the ZDF hit parade. A song which was later to rise to success again with the Flippers ! Tony Hendrik's meeting with Karin Hartmann led to one of the most successful German production teams.
Together they launched numerous national and international careers. And established artists also made impressive come-backs under the direction of Tony Hendrik and Karin Hartmann.
After two decades of successful cooperation, the dream duo decided to split up and go their separate ways. Karin Hartmann stayed with the company. In early 2007 they sold Coconut to a group of private investors who reorganised and renamed the company Coconut Music

Angel (20th Apr 1999)
Latin freestyle group Collage helped revitalize an all-but-abandoned style still reeling from its drastic, early-'90s loss of popularity. Collage was essentially vocalist Anthony Monteleone, along with producer/songwriter Adam Marano, who also ran the Viper Records label for which Collage recorded. Viper's parent label, Metropolitan, issued the Viper's Freestyle Hit Parade compilation in 1994; it helped break the Collage single I'll Be Loving You nationally, reviving the freestyle sound that had produced a number of club and pop hits during the late '80s (but subsequently lost most of its audience).
Collage's debut album, Chapter One, was released later that year, producing another hit in the follow-up Gangster of Love ; it also prominently featured female backup vocalist Denine. Collage's success helped spark a renewal of interest in freestyle during the '90s (on a more underground rather than mainstream level), and Marano went on to work with several other artists. A few eurodance singles were recorded : among them, Love Of A Lifetime.
The second Collage album, Chapter II: 1999, didn't appear for another five years; however, it still managed to produce a minor hit, Angel. Chapter 3 was released in late 2001, spawning the single Tonight.

Cool James real name was James Dandu. He was also known under the other scene names Mtoto wa Dandu and CJ Massive. He was born in July 5th 1970 in Mwanza, Tanzania. He did his primary studies in Dar es Salaam Olympio, then his parents moved to Sweden. "I couldn't study mathematics there, which I really wanted to do, because I didn't speak Swedish and they would only teach it in Swedish, but I opted to go for music and ended up enjoying it."
His professional musical career started in 1983, he released his first musical album in 1986, already a dance-oriented production. Then he joined the Kenyan Andrew Muturi and created the group Swahili Nation. Together they released the hit single Mpenzi. But "Andrew's brother wanted to join in and we let him, and after that another brother... I mean after a while all this family stuff started to get in the way of business", he explains. So in 1990 James left the group, and started a business to promote himself and his entertainment work. Called Dandu Planet, the company now owns subsidiaries that are involved in artist management, production and publishing work.
In 1993 he created the eurodance project Cool James and Black Teacher. They released one album and many hits such as Dr. Feelgood (it won the Best Scandinavian Dance Track in 1994), Godfather and The Rhythm Of The Tribe.
Then he went back to his solo career as a rapper in his homeland, Tanzania. He wrote and produced his music himself. "When I came to Africa, I had to decide between doing the music for the love of it and not making much profit, or going back to European-oriented music and doing it for the profit." he said.
Cool James was a great supporter of African music. He registered another subsidiary of his company, Dandu Entertainment, in every East African country, to seek out, produce and manage talented, underexposed African artistes. He started the Tanzanian Music Awards in 1999.
He married Devotta Chuwa and had 2 kids called Caroline-Jamie (who he referred to as Malaika in his songs) and Michael James Junior. His hobbies were music and football, he admired Puff Daddy and Koffi Olomide. Michael Jackson also inspired him a lot.
He died in a car accident on the 27th of August 2002 in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania.

Cool James and Black Teacher's real names are Jamie Dandu (Cool James) and José Masena (Black Teacher). The group was formed in Solna, Sweden and was signed to Stockholm records. They have worked with other artists like Flexx, Booster and Dr Alban and produced songs together with Ari Lehtonen and the duo Nordlund/Lagerlöf (producer of Flexx), they have also written dance-songs for an artist called Danuma.
Their first release was the maxisingle Undercover Lovers but it never became a big hit. After that the single Thank You, Thank You (1993) managed to reach some dance charts. But it was not until they released their album Zooming You that they broke through with the single Dr. Feelgood in 1994 which became the # 21 most sold single all categories in Sweden that year (Black Teacher raps in French in Dr Feelgood and one can even see him read Le Monde newspaper in the videoclip). After that they followed up with the songs Godfather and The Rhythm Of The Tribe which also became very successful and was played a lot on the radio.
On the back of the Comala Wessa single there was a mention "Taken from the forthcoming album Dippy Dippy Days". Probably there was a third album planned for the group, however it was never released.
The group's last single was Free, released in 1998 and it was quite a good track. Aftwerwards, the project split up, apparently for financial reasons.
There were some sad rumours that Black Teacher passed away but it was fortunately wrong. Cool James returned to his solo career and released a few singles and an album but the sound was not eurodance anymore. He continued his rapper carreer in his homeland Tanzania. He died in a carcrash there, in the mid August 2002.

The singer of Corona is officially Olga Maria De Souza. Actually, the first hit The Rhythm Of The Night was sung by Jenny Bersola who also took part to the JK project (among others), while the following ones were sung by Sandy Chambers. So is Olga only a lipsyncing model ? The reality is between the two. Olga could be heard singing a capella choruses of her songs in many TV shows. This proves she knows how to sing and she sings well, but at the beginning of carreer she had a strong Brazilian accent.
Legend says that Olga met producer Francesco Bontempi in Rome . She first signed for a job of chorist, but finally Francesco decided to start a new project called Corona, using her face. At the beginning it was not easy because Olga had to learn a right English accent.
In December 1993 the first song The Rhythm Of The Night (strongly inspired from Save Me, a song of the group Say When!) was recorded at the Pink studio in Reggio Emilia, and was mixed at the Kristal studio in Massa by Francesco Alberti. It was released on the DWA Records Label all over the world and climbed charts everywhere. The song reached #1 in Italy and kept the position for 13 consecutive weeks. In England it was released by the multinational Warner Music and reached #2 in the official sales charts (more than 400.000 copies sold, gold record status). There, it was also remixed by Rapino Brothers. In Israel it reached #2. Finally the song reached the USA where it became #11 in the official sales charts, and #1 in Canada. It was awarded more than 15 gold and platinum records throughout the world, and proved itself the most loved and danced song of 1994. At Midem 1994 it was the most successful project. While Corona started taking part in TV shows, photo sessions, performances in discos and so on, Francesco began preparing new songs for the album. Then a fantastic remix of The Rhythm Of The Night and a videoclip, extensively aired by MTV, were released. In a short time, thanks to her World Tour, Olga became a very well-known star, loved by everyone for her beauty and personality. Some months passed before the release of the new single, because in countries such as Japan, the USA and Great Britain, The Rhythm Of The Night was still in great demand.
It wasn’t until the beginning of March 1995 that Baby Baby (a cover of a Joy & Joyce song) had its full world-wide release. Vocalist Jenny Bersola refused to sing vocals for the second single, so Robyx organized an audition to search for a new vocalist. This is how Sandra Chambers was chosen to be the new studio vocalist. As in The Rhythm Of The Night, this new song had an easy chorus to memorize and a captivating European rhythm. The video clip was shot by a well-known Italian film company : the Film Master Clip. In a short time, Baby Baby whizzed up the charts making it another #1, as was to be expected. It reached n°5 in Israel. And once again Corona entered the American charts.
April 1995 was blessed with the long awaited debut album released by Corona with the title The Rhythm Of The Night with melodic and happy songs (a reflection of the artist’s personality). A collection of 16 songs, among which we can find two versions of The Rhythm Of The Night (one by Rapino Bros and the other, with Ice MC's participation, remixed by Lee Marrow) and a version of Baby Baby remixed by the English Dancing Divaz. The album was recorded in Italy, at Casablanca Recordings.
Corona went on tour to promote her album (she did the first part of Diana Ross' concerts) and America loved her beautiful smile and friendly attitude ! Radio and TV program directors were extremely enthusiastic about having her on their shows. Top of the Pops couldn't get enough of her. The tours throughout the world continued, and summer 1995 arrived. Corona was one of the biggest stars invited at 'Festivalbar', Italy’s most important summer event. She also took part 4 times to the mega dance concerts Dance Machine in France.
The third single, Try Me Out was released in July 1995. As usual it was a big hit in Italy (#2 in the charts), in Israel (#7), entered the UK-chart as #14. and reached the top 5 around most of the world. Many big names (MK, Alex Party, Lee Marrow) made remixes of it. The video, directed by Film Master Clip once again, had major TV airplay, making this 'Italian diva' become a superstar. Try Me Out was originally released in 1993, under the name of Lee Marrow featuring Charme. It was produced, created and arranged by Checco & Soul Train for a Lee Marrow Productions. At this time it was a quite slow house-track, not even close to beeing as energic as Corona's version.
A bit of a surprise was the 4th single : I Don't Wanna Be A Star, in disco style, out in November 1995. Recording took many time, studio vocalist Sandy was so exhausted that she was almost crying... and musical team chose the version with the almost crying voice. The song was remixed in a 70's disco style because it was the current trend. Legend says that Olga has always loved the magic of the 70’s and so she asked Lee Marrow to create a song in that vein : I Don't Wanna Be A Star was born ! The song was available in various styles, including eurodance, and there was also a video filmed in the Roman 'Dolce Vita' atmosphere, with plenty of the colours and flavours of the 70's. Some parts were strongly inspired from Geraldine Hunt Can't Fake the Feeling. I Don't Wanna Be A Star was covered by a project called The Troubles.
In summer 1996 Corona was invited to present the 'Festivalbar' show. It could have been the beginning of a new career in television... After that the Megamix was released, including the 4 hits The Rhythm Of The Night, Try Me Out, Don't Wanna Be A Star, and Baby Baby. Then Francesco Bontempi's contract with DWA ended. We could have thought that it was the end of the project, but in 1997 Corona was back with The Power Of Love, whose videoclip was shot in Arizona, and which did not become a very big hit. The next step was the album Walking On Music (12 tracks, released ZYX Music Germany) and the single Walking On Music with 12 different mixes available. The last single was released in March 1999 and is called Magic Touch. Afterwards, studio vocalist Sandy Chambers left the project.
2000 : Corona project was back with a new disco/dance single called Good Love, sung with Olga's real voice. John O'Flynn, among others (including Christian De Walden, Carlo Nasi and Tony Ruggero), took part to the realization of the single. The third album was released in June 2001. Entitled And Me U , it contained 12 tracks plus a remix, and absolutely no eurodance. The album was only released in Brazil on Abril Music and had very little success over there. All the songs were produced in the USA at Zig Zag Productions studios in Los Angeles, California. And her new name would be Corona X, since apparently there were some legal issues preventing her from being Corona.
2002 : Corona's hit The Rhythm Of The Night was covered by Alex Christensen (producer of U 96, Rollergirl) who released it under the name of Alex C. feat. Yasmin K.
A rare track was released by DWA under the name of Corona. It is entitled Yo Tengo Un Novio En Hawai, composed by F. Bontempi, Peter W. Glenister and Michael Gaffey. The lyrics were written by Annerly Gordon, Giorgio Spagna, Peter W. Glenister and Michael Gaffey. The melody was the same as The Rhythm Of The Night.
2004 : Corona recorded a track entitled A Cor Dos Teus Olhos (means "the colour of your eyes", which was featured on the compilation Brazil 5000-3.
2005 : in an interview on DWA Records website, Olga gave the info that she was "really very busy in America, in fact The Rhythm of the Night is going through a rebirth there and I'm often a guest at various performances and shows. I’m also preparing a single in Portugese (my mother tongue) that you'll soon hear being talked about!!" she explained. She got signed under Shake Records and, at the end of the year, the name of her forthcoming new single was revealed : Back In Time. Apparently, she was allowed to use the Corona scene name again.
2006 : on the 7th January, Corona performed in a TV show on the French television channel France 2. She sung her hit The Rhythm of the Night, then, during a short interview during which she showed she was still in very good shape, she sung a part of her new single Back In Time acapella. According to her, Back In Time should be released in France next summer. Frenchies are still waiting...
April : an original song callled Baby I Don't Care by Corona was released on a US compilation produced by Giuseppe D called Evolutions - DJ Giuseppe D.
Corona gave an interview on May 20th to RLB Attiva Radio. Between May and August she'll be on tour in Italy. The first show happened in Rombiolo, on May 21st as second part of the group Stop & Go, an Italian pop band. She played the new hits, as well as the old ones.
Corona's next single was entitled I'll Be Your Lady. It entered the Czech charts at the end on September.
2007 : Sunblock feat. Sandy did a cover of Corona's hit Baby Baby, it was #16 on the Danish dancechart at the end of April.
Corona was among the stars who contributed to the welfare concarte Papafriends, organized by famous guitar player Steve Hackett for the benefit of sick and hungry children. In 2008, she should also perform at the concert Food Force Festival.
In September, Corona's new single was released in Italy. It was entitled La Playa Del Sol. She was working on a new album.
In October, a cover of her hit The Rhythm Of The Night was released by Favretto. It featured raps and vocals by Dhany and Jenny B. Corona's new album should come in March or April 2008
2008 : Hermes House Band released a cover of Corona's The Rhythm Of The Night. A little later, Verano also did a cover of Corona's hitsingle. Then, in August of the same year, a new version of The Rhythm Of The Night was released under UK label AATW as Frisco vs Corona. It featured the original Jenny B vocals. A video was shot, featuring Olga.
2010 : In January, Flo Rida released a remix of The Rhythm Of The Night. In April, the title of Corona's new single was revealed : it would be entitled Girando, and it would be a mix of English and Brazilian Portuguese. In May, Olga announced in an interview that she was currently working on a new album. new remixes of The Ryhtm Of The Night were released under label DWA Italy, as Simon from Deep Divas vs Corona. French DJ Chris Garcia also released his own version of Corona's classic for the summer, this time featuring a new vocalist.
Corona's new album Y Generation was released in July. It was an amazing dance album. Corona's long awaited new single is entitled I'm Not An Angel. In October, the album reached #1 on iTunes, category best dance album.
2011 : next single by Corona to be released from her current album Y Generation should be My Song (Lai Lai Lai), but nothing finally came out.
2012 : Corona's new single is a collaboration with Mickey P. entitled Hurry Up. in June, Corona released a remixed version of her album Y Generation, entitled My Y Generation Remixed. Her hit The Rhythm Of The Night was covered by Cascada.

Tina Cousins began as a fashion model. She performed in a Rolling Stones video when she was 20 years old. The turning point of her career was a big fashion show in where she replaced a singer that cancelled. A local record company made a deal with Tina and arranged her to PWL studios where she began working with the producer Pete Waterman (also known from Steps' songs) and composers like Karl Twigg and Mark Topham. 'When you've done modelling everyone thinks that it's not really your voice on the record. At first I had to convince people that I really can sing' she explains.
Her first single Killin' Time was released in1997 and was a hit all over Europe (78th in MTV's best dance videos of all time in 1998, # 16 in Israel, # 15 in UK). The following single entitled Angel wasn't just as successful as Killin' Time (it peaked nevertheless at # 10 in Israel), but the real break-thru was with Sash! 's single Mysterious Times from where Tina will always be remembered. The track was featured as well in her first album Killing Time as in Sash!'s Life Goes On album.
Tina's own, third single Pray was a hit e.g. in Finland or in Israel where it reached # 3. This gave her more success as a solo artist. The first album Killing Time was released in 1998, first in Finland in where it sold gold quickly. Forever was released as single from the album in 1999. Tina was also seen in Brits Awards '99 Thank Abba For The Music song that brought together 4 Abba's hits (Take A Chance On Me, Dancing Queen, Mamma Mia and Thank You For The Music) together with the groups B*Witched, Billie Piper, Cleopatra and Steps.
Even if at first she didn't want to become only the voice of Sash!, she finally decided to record another single in cooperation with Sash! : Just Around The Hill.
Tina is relatively well-known in her home country England, but good for her, there isn't a huge crowd of fans around her all the time. She says "In my hometown I can't go out, Tina laughs. London isn't that bad. When people recognize me, they only shake hands and congratulate at most".
2000 : Tina has a new single called Nothing To Fear, which was recently released in Australia, whereas her debut album Killin Time was released in the US on June 6th.
2002 : Tina will present her new single in October, it will be entitled Come To Me.
2003 : Tina Cousins took part to the Too Smart 4 Drugs Tour. This tour was intended to teach children to make the right choice if they come across drugs. She sung Mysterious Times as well as copresenting.
2004 : Tina is still touring in England and abroad, she appeared in a Spanish discotheque in February. Her new album is currently being mixed.
2005 : Tina came back with a new single entitled Wonderful Life (a re-make of the 1987 Black classic single) which was released first in Australia. It was composed by Colin Vearnombe, produced by Louie Nicastro & Tom Maddicott, recorded at Charlton Farm Studios, Bath, UK.
The new album will be entitled Mastermind. It will be released in Australia on Sunday August 7th. The next single will be Come To Me, which will go to radio early August with a commercial release scheduled for early September. Tina will do a promo tour in November and will perform at the Australian Fashion Awards scheduled for November 11th.
2006 : Tina Cousins' new single is entitled Pretty Young Thing (already sung by Lene from Aqua some years ago). It entered the Finnish charts in May.
In December, 4 Strings featured Tina Cousins' voice on their new single Curious.
2008 : 4 Strings and Tina Cousins were also nominated at the International Dance Music Awards Best hiNRG/Euro with their song Curious.
Tina Cousins' new single is called Everlong and will be available in April, along with the album Greatest Hits.
2011 : Killin' Time was covered by Party DJ W.

Born in 1966, Emanuele Cozzi had been DJing since he was 15 years old. Then he became a speaker at Rete 105 Network (a big radio station in Milan). He loves Paris and feminity. He hates egoism. His favourite groups are Sigue Sigue Sputnik and Kenny G. He met Maurizio Rossi in 1991, thanks to the producer Secchi. They began to work together under the name of Co.Ro.
In 1998, Emanuele Cozzi (aka "Paps") teamed up with Davide "Skar" Scarpulla : they created the Paps 'n Skar project. They appeared in the Italian market in June 1998 on the Time Records label with their first single Because I'm Free, which was easily recognizable as it featured samples from the song One Step from the band Kissing The Pink. Vocals for this track were provided by Linda Peverini.
One year later, in July 1999, they came back with their first majorly successful single You Want My Love (Din Don Da Da). This time, female vocals were done by Paola Gun. With this single, Paps 'N' Skar were invited to perform at the World Dance Music Festival in Tenerife in October in front of more than 150 000 people.
In April 2000, they returned to the Italian music scene with their 3rd single Turn Around. This track dominated the Spanish airwaves, and Paps 'N' Skar were dubbed as the "Most Air Played Group" in Spain that year, as well as once again finding themselves performing at the World Dance Music Festival. This track's chorus (like their first single) was also recognised as it was sung to the same rhythm as the Nik Kershaw 80's classic I Won't Let The Sun Go Down On Me.
February 2001, Paps 'N' Skar released their next single Get It On, which featured a more softer vocal performance from their female singer. This single was mainly noticed in the Italian Music World, especially by the organisers of Festivalbar, since they booked Paps 'N' Skar to perform their latest hit in their open arena gig. The bookings didn't stop there though... They also performed live on the Disney Channel in Italy, to great responses from the young listeners. In the Deejay Parade charts, the song managed to peak at #4, and in the former Super Deejay chart, the song entered in it's first week at #2. And in France, in the official club charts, Get It On managed to take the prestigious #1 spot.
Another whole year later, in February 2002, they returned with a 5th single entitled Loving You. This their first single to feature only male vocals. This track reached #31 in the official FIMI Italian singles charts and #3 in the Deejay Parade charts.
In February 2003 they released their sixth single entitled Love Is Love. This track was only released on 12" vinyl record, therefore did not chart in the Italian singles charts.
Success went back during summer of 2003 : their 7th single, Che Vuoto Che C'è, based on a large sample from the chorus of a classic RAF song called Siamo Soli Nell'Immenso Vuoto Che C'è. This was their first single to be sung in 2 languages : English and Italian. This was also the first song they performed under their new label, Warner Music Italy.
With Christmas 2003 closing in, Cozzi and Scarpulla decided to give their own Christmas present to the Italian people, in the form of their 8th single entitled Mon Amour. ("My Love" in French). Once again, the chorus was a sample taken from a 80's track : this time it was picked up from Video Killed The Radio Star. They also promised they would release their first album during 2004, more than five years after their music debut. The album would contain all their previous hits, plus some new ones.
With this new album on its way, Paps N Skar couldn't resist releasing one more single. The (unbelievably) 9th single was entitled Mirage (La Luna), as usual a cover from the 80's. With this single, they gained their highest position on the Deejay Parade charts, climbing up to #2.

Crispy was founded in 1997 in Copenhagen by producer Mads B.B. Krog. It featured female vocalist Mette Christensen (Icy B, born 25th of September 1976 in Copenhagen) and keyboardist and male vocalist Christian Møller (born on December 16th, 1974 in Copenhagen).
1998 : they were awarded with the "Pop Shop Award '98" for Best Scandinavian Debut Release, beating 15 other nominees. At the price giving Crispy performed with 5 songs live on the national radio. They first and only album entitled The Game was recorded and mixed in Denmark, Sweden and Germany. The Japanese Version of the album also contained four exclusive bonus tracks, including two previously unreleased songs Bad Girls and Happy King. During Christmas, Crispy were on promotion/concert tour in Japan, visiting Tokyo, Nagoya and Osaka. The overall success of Crispy's first album lead the group to prepare for a second album, which they hoped to release sometime in 2000.
2000 : the release of the second album was cancelled, most likely due to the sudden death of lead vocalist, Mette, from cancer.
2001 : the surviving members elected to discontinue the group. A new project called XPY was created, Mette Christensen was replaced by Gry Bay, and a few singles (Left, Right, La Fiesta) were released under the new name before the act was abandoned in the early 2000s. Mads Krog has continued making music under various aliases (Blush, P-Control...).

In 2001, prompted also by his passion for the AS Roma, he produced a CD in which are mixed choirs of Roma fans and backing tracks, and the video Here, a novelty and a great success. In a few weeks were sold tens of thousands of copies. After winning the championship in Rome he also produced a report on Japanese television. The CD would soon be four and choirs would all have great public approval. Memorable Remo Remotti in the interpretation of Semo tired. Scathing song about the world of football in the style of the great poet.
In 2004 the Lazio Region has an ambitious project: creating a data base of multimedia on popular music of Lazio. The project was approved with great enthusiasm and led to the video archive site www.musichedellazio.it. Filming, recording and archiving are still underway to create the most complete multimedia studio on the musical traditions of Lazio.

Hard dance Israelian DJs Alex Moerman & Paul Gorbulski are the creators of Crystal Lake. Combining Dance & Ambient elements with Hardstyle, their music is the perfect formula for their main genre, Happy Hardstyle.
In studio, from drummer Alex contributes the beats and the track design. Paul is in charge of the melodies and the lyrics. When Paul was a kid he used to play the violin, after training for 1 year he threw the violin against the wall and broke it! After his unsuccessful violin experience Paul started taking piano lessons, which lasted for 8 years! It all started in the summer of 1999, when the two cooperated on their first track.. Nothing special happened at first but Alex & Paul realized they could work together as a team.
By 2003, they were well acquainted and well on their way. Crystal Lake came up with the huge Israeli dance floor filler Tutim. The success of this track led to a tour all over Israel on which they obviously left their mark, as the song is still a regular favorite on many DJ turntables today. After that Paul & Alex realized that they could do the same in Europe...
Nowadays Crystal Lake are signed to one of the biggest dance labels in Europe - Zooland records (home of Cascada, RIO, ItaloBrothers, Spencer & Hill, Manian and more).
They work as hard as ever performing live shows & playing DJ sets, doing TV & Radio appearances, recording their monthly show – “Crystal Nation” and of course produce & write new hits.
They did productions and collaborations with ItaloBrothers, Lolita, Commercial Club Crew, Rob Mayth, DJ Dean, Flarup, Maly, Jan Wayne, Nick Kershaw, Rednex, John Marks, Double Agents, Scarlet, Marcie, 4 Strings, Aruna, Fundo, Elena Josepha, Moran David, Sesta, Ethnix and Megara & Lee (Apollo). Alex & Paul also collaborate in projects such as C-Lake, Sunny Inc, Bar10ders, Pavex, and Global Warming, amongst others.
2010 : Crystal Lake released their first album We Bring The Joy as C-Lake.
2011 : Crystal Lake's new single Party Doesn't Stop was released on April 1st.
2013 : in February, Crystal Lake published the videoclip of their new single Dear God. Their next single was a collaboration with Mirami entitled Holiday.
2014 : new Crystal Lake single was entitled Darkness and it featured Barbie G. Then came a collaboration with Republica entitled Ready To Go, released on February 28th. Their next single BVRN! was out in May. Then in November they dropped single Sirens.
2015 : they teamed with Headhunterz on single Live Your Life, out end on May.

Producers : Torsten & Frank Fenslau, Peter Gräber. As early as 1989, Culture Beat caused a considerable stir in the German and UK charts with Erdbeermund (Cherry Lips, with Jo Van Nelsem, well known cabaret singer in Germany). Further hits such as I Like You and Tell Me That You Wait from the Horizon album, with Jay Supreme and Lana E, followed.
Then, in 1993, Serenity was released and Culture Beat won more or less every available dance and music prize that was up for grabs in Germany that year. (Among other trophies, Torsten Fenslau was awarded the 1993 Echo prize, the highest German music industry award, for 'Producer of the year' and Culture Beat the 1993 Echo for 'Most successful German album abroad').
The single Mr. Vain reached the number one spot in twelve different countries, including 9 weeks in Germany and 4 weeks in the UK, a # 2 position in Israel and also reached #17 in the Top 20 in the US Billboard Charts (where it sold gold). In all 4.5 million singles were sold world-wide, and the album achieved sales exceeding 1 500 000. As for the following singles, Got to Get It reached # 5, Anything # 3 and World in Your Hands # 2 in Israel.
At the end of 1993 the band's success story was overshadowed by the tragic death of founder and producer Torsten Fenslau. The question of whether in the light of this there could be any further Culture Beat albums was quickly answered by Frank Fenslau, who vowed to carry on the business and follow in his brother's footsteps. He kept his promise and he has definitely come up with the goods.
Two years passed and Inside Out was ready to hit the market, as a new musical age dawned for Culture Beat. The typical inimitable sound always associated with the band has been further developed, and instead of following the present German hit-parade trend of 'Faster, harder, shorter', the tracks were groovier, with more atmosphere. The trance elements, Jay Supreme's rapping, and the bitter-sweet voice of Tania Evans had been brought clearly to the fore without losing out on the music's danceable quality, most clearly demonstrated on the emotional first single Inside Out.
In producing Inside Out, Frank Fenslau chose an approach which is considered unorthodox in the German dance scene, though perfectly normal for the UK or US. The album was not made by just one person, but by five different production teams (Peter Gräber/Frank Bülow, Perky Park, Cyborg, Doug Laurent, R.U.T.). Each track has its own different and special character, and there was hardly a dance album around to match its varied nature.
These production methods also resulted in hard work for Tania Evans and Jay Supreme.' It was an enormous challenge as we had to familiarise ourselves with each team. Everybody works differently, and as I'm also responsible for the rhythm in my texts, I had to make sure that I quickly found a new basis on which to communicate with each producer', says Jay Supreme. Tania adds, 'During the recording we didn't feel that we were working on any old artificial dance project. The record contains a lot of very personal emotions from all those involved. We don't just think of ourselves as a band, we are one.'
The singles to be released from this album were also very successful. For example, the 1996 singles Crying In the Rain and Take Me Away peaked #25 and #4 in Israel. But afterwards Tania Evans left the act for a solo career. Jay Supreme remained with the act for a short time after Tania's departure, but he finally quitted too.
In 1997, eurodance project Age Control released a cover of Mr. Vain.
The 16th of February 1998 was the date that when the single Pay No Mind was released in the Netherlands and Germany. Pay No Mind was the first single to feature Kim Sanders. This single was the first pre-release of the 5th Culture Beat album called Metamorphosis which was released in the beginning of summer 1998. Culture Beat was now a solo-act, with however the contribution of the rapper N'XT on some tracks.
In May the second single from the 5th album Metamorphosis was released. Entitled Rendez-Vous, it was in the same low tempo style as Pay No Mind. These 2 singles didn't bring Culture Beat the success they had hoped. You Belong would the new single for Culture Beat.
2000 : ReLoaded Culture released a cover of Mr. Vain.
2001 : Culture Beat is back with a new female vocalist named Jackie Sangster, and a Greek support rapper called MC 4T. Their new album Obsession was said to be almost ready. It contained 15 tracks, was planned to be released during the Autumn 2001. The first single Insanity already reached position #1 in Israel.
2003 : Mr Vain recall was very successful in Germany.
2004 : a new single at last ! Entitled Can't Go On, it was was written by Kim Sanders and released as vinyl... It . During an interview in Club Rotation in May, Jackie explained that rumors concerning a Culture Beat split up were totally wrong. They were still doing live appearances very often (a world tour is even planned), and keep on recording for a new album. "We keep on going. Culture Beat does not stop. We don't stop for nobody. We have no reason to stop. People keep on liking our music, so we just gotta keep on going". But they would like to move to a new sound and a complete new direction. They consider that they can afford it after all these years... "Culture Beat is a at point where we can pretty much do what we wanna do".
