Get Your Freedom was released in 1994, licensed under Scorpio in France. Sergio Portaluri did the bass and programming. Drums, Percussion and engineering was done by Fulvio Zafret. The single was produced by De Point. Vocals, songwriting and guitar were done by David Sion.
Another track was released under the name F & F : Enola Gay (label Audiodrome, out in 1992, and released in France under the label Happy music in 1993). Maybe it's the same project, maybe not.

Pium Paum (1995)
It is highly probable that the vocalist of this single is the same Anna Falchi, more well-known in Italy for being a model and actress.
Anna Falchi was born in April 22 1972 in Tampere (Finland) from a Finnish mother, Kaarina Palomaki Sisko, and a father of Romagna (an Italian region), Benito Falchi aka Tito. In her the characters of the two populations are combined to the perfection, the Finnish beauty (blonde hairs and blue eyes) and the spontaneity and joy of Romagna. She admits to having a masculine character and from child this, joined to the his fervent imagination, it changed in her imaginary friend called Puff (Soffio). Her dad left her family, and still nowadays, the relationships between Anna and his father are practically nonexistent. Her mother enrolled her to a models school and this how her career began.
In 1989, she participated to the Miss Italy contest, conquering the title of Miss Cinema. This is how she got noticed by Fred Fellini himself. Under his direction, she tool part to a commercial for a famous bank. In 1992, following the advice of a friend, she tried to start a career in the cinema. Marco Risi noticed her, and this is how she got the role of Irene in the film Nel Continente Nero. She also contributed to the 45th Festival of Sanremo in which Pippo Baudo wanted her to appear at his side, together with Claudia Koll. After the festival, Anna will start the shooting of two author films, Celluloide by Carlo Lizzani and Giovani e Belli by Dino Risi. In December of the same year was also published the first calendar featuring her photos.

Fancy's real name is Manfred Alois Segieth or Manfred Aulhausen. He started his carreer back in 1984 with his two successful singles Slice Me Nice and Chinese Eyes. In 1985 another hit song Bolero infected European countries uncontrollably (it was a top song in Spain for almost six months). For most of the next year (1986) Fancy was on the road, performing in European as well as US dance clubs. He really became famous with his 1987 album Flames Of Love. The title track captivated most of the Europe and also showed that Fancy knew what his audience wanted - quality, emotion filled, danceable songs.
Two more albums followed in the same musical style and, not surprisingly, Fancy had number of hits with songs such as When Guardian Angels Cry and Angel Eyes. The next couple of albums took a more current EuroDance style direction (one of them was actually heavily based on rap), but now and again one or two tracks on his albums still serves as a reminder of the '80s hits. Fancy is still producing and writing tracks for other artists as well. Fancy is apparantly a very quiet and private person but gives all he has when producing and performing.
Fancy made a comeback in 1998 with the remix of his biggest hit Flames Of Love. It didn't take long to captivate audiences around Europe once again. That year Fancy released Hit Party with remixes of his old hits and some new compositions. Only a year later another album D.I.S.C.O. was released and received very good reviews from the fans since most songs were based on an old Fancy formula which made him a star in the '80s. Then came the album Locomotion in 2001.
2008 : Fancy released a new album entitled Forever Magic.
2014 : Fancy was featured by Linda Jo Rizzo on her single Stronger Together
2016 : Fancy teamed with Adam van Hammer for a 33rd anniversary remix of his hit Slice Me Nice.

Chairman of FMP, Frank Farian has produced some tracks for many successful projects such as La Bouche, Milli Vanilli, No Mercy, Boney M, Eruption, and artists such as Lori Glori...
Frank Farian's father made briefcases, out of real leather. His mother played piano and sang in the church choir. Farian grew up near Saarbrücken on the German-French border, near the U.S. military bases that would change his life.
Frank Farian never bought Beatles records. "I wasn't a Beatles fan," he said. He was a soul man : give him Sam Cooke, Little Richard, Otis Redding. Farian imitated the sounds of black American music and began singing in the local clubs that targeted the homesick U.S. soldiers. He got good enough to do decent covers of the latest soul hits. The soldiers liked his singing; the clubs brought him back.
Farian launched his career in the pop industry as the singer in his own group, "Frankie Farian and the Shadows", releasing covers of black artists such as the Drifters and Otis Redding. But Frankie Farian and the Shadows never made it big. "No one wanted my music," he recalls. "It was better from America. A white singer singing black music wouldn't work. The record companies sent me back to German music". Then, as now, German pop was a lilting barrage of bright sounds designed to elicit the rhythmic clapping that brings gleeful smiles to German audiences. It's oom-pah music gone high tech. Even the love songs sound martial. Farian was miserable.
By 1971 he had begun working as a producer, eventually hitting it big with the disco-Europop group Boney M, which was massively successful in Europehad and had a string of hits between 1976 and 1985 with songs such as Rasputin, Sunny, Daddy Cool, Gotta Go Home, Brown Girl in the Ring... His formula was pingy synthesizer rhythms, mind-numbing beats and simple, catchy melodies, often adapted from children's songs. Boney M record albums pictured four black performers, mostly former U.S. service members who stayed on in Germany to make a living in music. But Boney M was Frank Farian, finally getting to record the black music that got him into the business. On the albums, he was mentioned only as a back-up singer, and sometimes he wasn't mentioned as a singer at all. "Boney M was the most perfect mix of black and white music, but in America, music still had to be black or white," Farian says. "The real crossover didn't come until the late '70s, early '80s."
Farian was selling millions of records and became one of the world's most valued producers. Other claims to fame Farian cites include recording Stevie Wonder's I Just Called to Say I Love You at his studio in 1984, and work with Meat Loaf and the group Toto. Then, in 1988, came Milli Vanilli, another successful project featuring 2 handsome guys that were not the real singers. When the truth was discovered, it gave birth to a big scandal... Another project of the 80s was called La Mama
In 1994 he released another track Rikki Don't Lose That Number, and went back to other groups' production : this is how he started the mega-eurodance project La Bouche, then the boys-band No Mercy. He also worked with the vocalist Lori Glori.
Frank Farian owns his own recording studios - FAR Studios, his own music production company - FAR Music Production GmbH, his own publishing house for songs - FMP Songs, and his own record label - MCI that is distributed by BMG Ariola in Germnay & the rest of the world. However before he opened all these companies for business he used other recording studios, and released on the Hansa label. His first songs were copyrighted to FAR Musikverlag, his first company, before he created FMP Songs.
He recently wrote a book againt the producer Dieter Bohlen : Stupid Dieser Bohlen (Die Wahrheit und nichts als die Wahrheit über den Pop-Hochstapler).
2005 : Frank Farian produces the pop project Gift, in collaboration with Ulli
The project features 4 girls and had some success with their first single Yummy

La Bouche - A Moment Of Love (1998), Bolingo (Love Is In The Air) (1996), Fallin' In Love (1995), Forget Me Nots (1996), I Love To Love (1995), In Your Life (2002), Megamix (1996), You Won't Forget Me (1997)
Chairman of the SAIFAM Publishing Group, Farina is one of the dance music producers with more credibility in the club world.
Born 41 years ago in Milan, Italy, Mauro began playing the guitar when aged only 8 years old and founding his first band at 12 years of age, before becoming a studio singer in 1972. He liked old pop groups like Beatles, Rolling Stones, Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young but the artists that changed his taste were Patrick Cowley and Bobby Orlando. Mauro produced his first track in 1975 for an Italian Major. The record did not sell well, but he then decided that his life had to be lived only for the music. Later, he started to produce pop music for many Italian labels like a freelance.
In the wonderful world of Hi-NRG Italo-dance music, writer/producer/singer Mauro (Mark) Farina outshines them all. He started writing music in 1980. We began hearing the incredible creations of this mega-talented man with songs like Cha Cha Cha, (So, So, So) So Long, or To My Heart. Since then, he has not stopped churning out the hits for many other Italo-dance artists as well, including people like Wildside, Radiorama, and Ken Laszlo.
He founded Time Records in 1983 with Giuliano Crivellente and Giacomo Maiolini. Then Giuliano and Mauro left Time Records, but they kept a friendly relationship with Giacomo. Factory Team, consisting of Mauro, Giuliano Crivellente, Fabio Serra and Johnny Di Martino (aka Johnny Mix) started working together in 1986, at SAIFAM’s studios in Verona, a small town in Northern Italy
1997 finds Mauro Farina the 'boss' at his own music publishing group. An impressive amount of other record labels are held comfortably under S.A.I.F.A.M.'s umbrella, including the stupendous 21st Century and One Way Records (both labels responsible for a plethora of Hi-NRG hits over the past four years or so). Also, the amount of product S.A.I.F.A.M. releases monthly is second to none ! For not only is the quantity of music released astounding, but also the quality ! 'I personally love Hi-nrg more than other styles! Anyway I like to be up-dated on every kind of music' he says.
'I am creative, this means that when I play a guitar, or when I drive my car, or even when I play tennis or go jogging, I think about music and my brain can't stop thinking about melodies, arrangements etc. I consider me a 'lucky man' because every part of me talks about music!!! Normally, I give all my ideas and material to my producers-team (I strictly work with Factory Team & F. Turatti) than elaborate them in our studios! In this way I can work simultaneously on two or three songs!!! Let me tell you that we are a very well organised working-team and the merit of our success must be divided between all of our teams!!! Without musicians like Turatti, Johnny Mix, F. Serra, A.Bindi, R. Arduini, A. Puntillo and others, S.A.I.F.A.M. could not exist' he explains.
The music of Mauro Farina (and Factory Team, a group of other highly talented Italo-dance producers) has found immense commercial success in popular world Hi-NRG markets like Southeast Asia, Japan, and Brazil... He is now taking direct aim at the United States of America. The years 1997/98 see the US market for Euro and Hi-NRG continuing to grow.
When he does not work on music, he likes to play sports. He plays tennis everyday and participates in tournaments. In his house he has his private gymnasium where he spends some time exercising, and other times he runs or swims. He also reads a lot of books. His days are very long because he wakes up early 6.45 am -7.00 am) and goes to bed very late (1.00 am-1.30 am).

French singer, songwriter and author Mylène Farmer was born Mylène Jeanne Gautier in Pierrefonds (near Montreal), Quebec, Canada. Her family returned to France when she was 8, settling in the Parisian suburb of Ville-d'Avray. In her teenage years, she was passionate about horse-riding, qualifying as a riding instructor at the equestrian centre in Saumur. At the age of 17, she took a 3-year course at drama school Cours Florent in Paris. As an homage to her idol, 1930s Hollywood actress Frances Farmer, she changed her last name to Farmer, and she began to earn a living as a model acting in TV ads (Fiskars, Caisse d'Epargne...)
In 1984 in Cours Florent, she met Laurent Boutonnat, a young film student, with whom she forged a creative partnership, writing and producing the music. She gained fame with songs featuring controversial yet poetic lyrics, and explicit music videos. First single Maman a tort (My mum is wrong) was a mild success (an English version My Mum Is Wrong was very confidentially released), follow-up On est tous des imbéciles (we are all fools) flopped. Major breakthrough occured with smash-hit Libertine. The Barry Lyndon-inspired video, featuring a red-haired Mylène, had a running time of over 10 minutes. The following single, Tristana, also met with great success.
In 1988, Laurent Boutonnat and Mylène Farmer started to work on her follow-up album, Ainsi soit je... Singles Sans contrefaçon and Pourvu qu'elles soient douces topped the charts again. The other singles, Sans logique and title ballad Ainsi soit je... were also hits in France. In 1989 she did her first tour. A live single entitled Allan (a tribute to Edgar Poe) followed, but wasn't very succesful.
Third album was entitled L'Autre... Single Désenchantée, the album's lead single, became a phenomenon in French pop music, becoming the anthem of a whole generation and #1 in French charts. At the time, it went on to become the best selling French single of all time (both in country and around the globe), according to Guinness Book of World Records. Follow-up singles Regrets (gold-selling duet with Jean-Louis Murat), Je t'aime mélancolie and Beyond My Control (with its controversy video banned from musical channels) also had a lot of success.
In late 1992, she released the double-CD remix album Dance Remixes, containing 14 remixes of the singer's greatest dance hits plus a new song : the single Que mon cœur lâche. She released an English version entitled My Soul Is Slashed, which flopped. She then did a pause to star in Laurent Boutonnat's movie Giorgino, which was a commercial flop. After this, she decided to leave France to take a long break in California, USA, during which she started writing for her 4th studio album Anamorphosée.
The album was launched by XXL, a rock song with blasting electric guitars, which started at #1. Video featured Mylène Farmer hung on at the front of a moving locomotive. It was followed by L'Instant X (featuring remixes by Ramon Zenker), the ballad California, Comme j'ai mal and Rêver. In summer 1996, she embarked on her second concert tour which met with huge success. The corresponding live album, Live à Bercy, is currently the best-selling French live album ever, while Anamorphosée was, 16 months after its release, certified Diamond. Beyond My Control was sampled by Orion 8 for their single Behind My Control. The melody of Sans Contrefaçon was used for Patricia's single Listen To Your Heart
1999 : her 5th studio album Innamoramento was released in Spring. The lead single L'Âme-stram-gram was a futuristic up-tempo techno-ballad with erotic lyrics accompanied by a Chinese-themed video in which Farmer commits suicide to save her twin. Both the single and the album (again certified Diamond in France) went straight to #2 on the charts. The video for the second single, Je te rends ton amour, sparked controversy because of its religious blasphemy being condemned by the Catholic Church and banned by many networks. Despite this, Farmer released a video single, which became the highest selling release of that kind in France. In late 1999, Farmer embarked on her third concert tour, the Mylenium Tour, which set the record of the highest grossing tour by a non-English speaking artist. During the tour, she released the singles Souviens-toi du jour and Optimistique-moi. After Innamoramento, the last single of the album, she recorded L'Histoire d'une fée, c'est... for the animated film Rugrats in Paris: The Movie. The single (in English: "The Story of a Fairy Is...") was a play on words with "fessée" which means spanking. She then released her third live album and DVD documenting the Mylènium Tour along with Dessine-moi un mouton, the promotional single for the live CD of the show.
2000 : with Laurent Boutonnat, she wrote and produced Alizée's albums Gourmandises and Mes courants électriques. Alizée's biggest hit, Moi... Lolita reached the top of the charts and she became the most successful French singer that year.
2001 : her first greatest hits CD entitled Les Mots (whose title track and lead single, a duet with Seal, became an enormous hit) was released and topped album charts.
2002 : singles C'est une belle journée and Pardonne-moi were top 10 hits. Désenchantée then Libertine were covered by Kate Ryan.
2003 : she published the tale book "Lisa Loup et le conteur".
2004 : in December , after a long period of silence, Farmer held a press conference announcing her new album, Avant que l'ombre..., and the single Fuck Them All.
2005 : new album debuted and spent several weeks at #1, and all 5 singles became Top 10 hits in France.
2006 : she gave a series of 13 concerts in January in Paris-Bercy. They were followed by a live album and concert DVD, Avant que l'ombre... à Bercy in December. Within months, the DVD became the best-selling music DVD in France ever. She recorded a duet with Moby on his single Slipping Away.
2007 : she recorded the theme song for Laurent Boutonnat's second movie Jacquou le Croquant and lent her voice to Selenia in the French version of animated Arthur and the Minimoys.
2008 : preceeded by hit single Dégénération, new studio album Point de Suture was released in stores on 25 August and started at #1. Next 4 singles from the album, Appelle mon numéro, Si j'avais au moins..., C'est dans l'air and Sextonik, all became #1 hits in France. She co-produced her niece Lisa's first single Drôle de creepie.
2009 : her fifth concert tour was sold out. A new live album documenting her 2009 tour, N°5 on Tour, was released on 7 December and was as usual a massive success.
2010 : a DVD of her Stade de France concerts was released on 12 April, becoming instantly Diamond. She recorded a duet with Line Renaud, that she co-wrote with Laurent Boutonnat. She also covered Never Tear Us Apart with Ben Harper, featuring new lyrics in French that she wrote. Her new single Oui mais... non (meaning Yes But... No, and #1 in the charts) was the start of a collaboration with producer RedOne (Lady GaGa). Follow-ups Bleu Noir and Lonely Lisa were as succesful. The album Bleu Noir (for once without Laurent Boutonnat) was released on December 6th.
2011 : her 2nd hits collection entitled 2001.2011 was released in late 2011, featuring all of her hit-singles recorded since Les Mots.
2012 : the new single, À l'ombre premiered on October 22nd and topped French singles chart. Videoclip was directed by Laurent Boutonnat. New album Monkey Me entered French charts at #1 on December 11th with sales about 147,000. Her new tour, Timeless 2013, will debut in September 2013.
The most successful and provocative female French recording artist of all time, Mylène Farmer is recognized as a major recording star in Europe, nearly an icon, and often compared as Madonna.

Italian DJ and producer Carlo Favilli was born in Rome, February 13th,1959. He also owned 2 record shops in Rome : Best Record # 5 and Mix Up. He wroked as a DJ in clubs Baia Imperiale in Gabicce (Pesaro and Urbino) and at Seven Up in Formia (Latina), which used to be the largest discotheque in Europe during the 80s. He often collaborated with producer Stefano Zito.
In 1984 he released a disco-mix 12" titled Heat The Beat under name Sal Wood, arranged by Marco Colucci and released by Claudio Casalini on Jumbo Records.
During the 90s Carlo Favilli worked very closely with Vanni Giorgilli and Maurizio Cristofori. They contributed to dance projects Kizomba, Lumy, KU, High Voltage, F.C.B. (Favilli Cristofori Bresil) and Nostradamus among others.
The first single released as Favilli was entitled Only For You and it featured the voice of Ryan Paris. It was released in 1997. The second was called So In Love With You and it used the voice of Dyonne. Then came Night Fever, featuring Thami Dee. Carlo's productions are considered as true Italo-Disco masterpieces, still today much in demand for sampling.
There were rumors according to which DJ Carlo Favilli was found in his hotel room during a New Year's Day in Estonia, but the cause remains unknown. He passed away in Tallin on January 6th 1998, after 6 days in a coma. Some rumors say he died from overdose (but his collaborator Lucio knew that he never took drugs), some others that he died from meningitis, but this actually proved to be wrong and real cause remains a mystery. He was only 39.

Felix was a dance project from the producers Rollo Armstrong and Red Jerry (Felix). Their debut single Don't You Want Me was released in the Spring of 1992. It reached # 6 in Israel and # 3 in Israel's dance chart of the 1990's decade, # 6 in UK, # 1 in Italy, Denmark, Spain, Norway, Sweden, Holland, Austria, Switserland, Ireland, # 2 in Germany, # 1 at MTV Europe for 5 weeks, # 1 in US Billboard dance chart. Red "Felix" Jerry was just 20 years old.
The following single It Will Make Me Crazy reached # 13 in UK, # 14 in Israel, # 6 in Germany, # 1 in Italy, Spain, Norway, # 6 in Europe's singles chart, # 6 at MTV Europe, # 2 in the US dance chart. Stars, released during the Summer 1993 was # 29 in the UK chart and # 1 in the UKdance chart. Don't You Want Me '95 was # 10 in UK and the '97 version of the same single reached position # 17. The succes was so big that they made a whole album. But when the album was released a big argue between the producers began because Felix had not written in the credits the name of Rollo, so everybody thought Felix was a one-guy project. Finally they split. Felix started the project JX after that. Rollo Armstrong went in to many projects like Kristine W., Dusted, Sphinx, The O.T. quartet and of course his biggest project Faithless.
2011 : the melody of Felix's hit Don't You Want Me was covered by Snoop Dogg & David Guetta on their current single Wet / Sweat

Airbag Generation (1996)
Set Me Free (2000)
Lolo Ferrari was born Eve Valois in Clermont-Ferrand (France), on November 8th, 1963 (her birth date varies according to sources). Ferrari was the last name of her grandfather. She spend her childhood in La Baule. As a teenager, she did some modelling. In 1988, she married Eric Vigne, a man 22 years her senior, who became her manager and encouraged her to undergo numerous plastic surgery operations, resulting into a 180 cm silicone-enhanced bust (22 enlargements, a Guinness world record). She suffered from a number of medical afflictions and lived with a heavy regimen of drugs. She appeared in a few pornographic films and took part to British Channel 4 television show Eurotrash, and in cabaret shows.
She released the excellent eurodance song Airbag Generation in 1996 under CNR. The single was remixed by Dominic Sas and Serge Ramaekers, licensed in Germany under Dance Pool. Then she recorded two more songs, a Euro disco cabaret song in french called Dance Dance Dance, and a cover of Thelma Houston's hit, Don't Leave Me This Way. Neither of the latter two songs was given a commercial release. In 2000, she recorded Set Me Free (accordgin to other sources, it was released in 1997, but it seems to be quite a rare track)
She tragically died in Grasse on May 5th 2000, real cause of her death remained undetermined. She was only 37.

She was born María Fernanda Blázquez Gil in Mexico City on July 21st, 1973, from a Spanish father Fernando Blázquez and an Argentine mother Carmen Josefa Gil. Fey is not the only artist in her family, she is the niece of Argentine pop duo Gloria y Noemi Gil. She spent almost her entire childhood in Spain. She has sold over a million records in her native Mexico and around 10 million copies around the world. She is a vegetarian.
Fey released her first album, titled Fey, in 1995, on the Sony Music Mexico record label. It was produced by José Ramón Florez. Within a couple of months of the album's release, she had scored several hits in her native Mexico, reaching #1 with Media naranja, Gatos en el balcon, Me enamoro de ti and La noche se mueve.
Gatos en el balcon talked about two kids who are in love, the term "cats" is used in Spain to refer to jobless who don't do anything productive for their lives and go wasting their time. But most thought it referred to the animal, so Fey eventually decided to use this cat concept for the her tour dancers outfits in "The Color of Dreams" in 1999 and 2000 tours.
After a massive tour in Mexico, including consecutive concerts in the Teatro Metropolitan (one of Mexico's well-known auditoriums), she toured in all of Latin America, and reached Gold status sales by the end of the year.
In 1996 Fey released her sophomore album Tierna la Noche, which brought her to worldwide fame. Azucar Amargo, the CD's first single, stayed in the Billboard chart for more than 30 weeks. Her tour, Tierna la noche, was also very successful. Overall the tour consisted of more than 40 dates in Mexico, the U.S. and Latin America, as well as some presentations in Europe.
In 1998, and after more than 8 months of absence, Fey released her third album El color de los sueños, a mix of different rhythms and styles differing from the 2 previous album. Ni tu ni nadie, the album's first single, instantly reached #1 in the Latin charts. Diselo con flores, Canela and Cielo Liquido soon followed. Although the record did very well in sales, it did not compare to the over-the-top success of Tierna la noche.
After almost a year of promotion and platinum record sales, Fey announced, in a 1999 charity concert, that she retired, explaining that "everything has a cycle, and this is the end of mine". 3 years of silence followed.
Fey returned in 2002 with a new album called Vertigo, a renovated image, and a new management team (Rebeca Mostow for the Anglo market and Octavio Padilla for Latin America market). Epic Records was to release this album in the UK, then in Germany, France, Asia, and in the US. Fey announced in "La Taquilla" (Exa FM radio show) that her first stop was the UK, then she confirmed that Sony Music Germany was preparing promotional work in that country for her English album. And she said that her songs from this album were being released in clubs to get her known. Vertigo, which wasn't as successful as the past albums, reintroduced Fey to a more grown-up crowd, which had waited four years for her return. Vertigo was recorded in English, and it was produced by Graeme Pleeth and R. Jazayerí, released as a double edition with both an English and Spanish album. The English album contained three more songs than the Spanish version. After 2 singles (The Other Side and Dressing to Kill), Fey left Sony and then did a two years pause.
2004 : Fey got married and relaunched her career with a new album La Fuerza del destino (a tribute to the Spanish group Mecano). This album was a success with the three singles La Fuerza Del Destino, Barco a Venus and Me Cuesta Tanto Olvidarte. Also for December holidays the track Un Año Más was released on radio in Mexico.
Fey toured in support of this album at the Viña del Mar festival 2005, the Selena Vive! festival, and many local clubs across the United States and Latin America. The record did amazingly sales-wise, and it gave Fey her very first Latin Grammy nomination for "Best Pop Female Vocal Album". As well she did it with 4 nominations for Premios Orgullosamente Latino 2005 & 2006-Ritmoson Latino and a Premio Oye nomination. She was recognized by the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) in Miami in 2006, thanks to the success of her Tour on gay discotheques in the United States in places such as: New Jersey, Chicago, Miami, San Antonio, Dallas, San Francisco, Los Ángeles, etc. by supporting gay human rights.
Fey's sixth album was called Faltan Lunas and was produced by Carlos Jean. It was slated for an August 1th, 2006, release, but was released on July 21st, Fey's birthday. It featured a pop/dance sound along with acoustic elements. The first single released was Y Aquí Estoy. The album flopped. It was released only in few countries of Latin America, selling only 10 000 copies worldwide, making it her lowest selling album ever. It was announced by Fey herself that the second single would be Me has vuelto loca, but it was changed to Como un Angel. Released in January 2007, if made no impact. Fey then left EMI and announced she would record her next studio album for an independent label.
As of June 2008, Fey gave an interview to her fans through Fey Station, confirming she was working on a new album where she would have complete creative control. Dulce Tentación was released April 28th, 2009, and the English version called Sweet Temptation was set to be released over the next months. The album was produced by Sam 'Fish' Fisher, who also co-wrote half of the songs on the record and was distributed internationally by Universal Music. One track, Cicatrices ( "Monsters") was available for download on Fey's official site at the end of 2008 and recorded more than 170.000 downloads.
2009 : the first official single was Lentamente (Let Me Show You), a song that put Fey back in the top of the charts in Mexico. The album was an unexpected success, winning a gold status for over 50.000 copies sold in less than one month in Mexico. The second single Provócame (Games That you Play) was released in July 2009, however, a conflict between Fey and her new record label Mi Rey Music over promotion differences and the concept of the new video led Fey to part ways with the record label.
Over the first days of August loads of rumors surfaced on the internet about Fey being resigned with her old record label Sony Music, label that already bought her catalog owned by EMI music, and supposedly would re-release her current album, Dulce Tentación. These rumors turned out to be false, since Fey decided to create her own record label Gil Producciones, by buying the rights to her music and to Elephant Music from Mi Rey Music. Late August 2009 Fey announced on her website that she was now in complete control of Elephant Music and continued to promote Provócame.
The song, written by Fey herself, was a dance-rock surprise, far the sweet image which fans were accustomed to. She had to suspend promotion of the single due to laryngitis. The video was released on September 21, 2009. A live DVD is also planned. The "Mexican Kylie" has already toured in clubs all over the United States and is set to begin her Sweet Temptation World Tour in November, 2009.
2010 : in April 2010 Fey announced that she was in studio recording her 8th studio album, with a planned lead single entitled Te Amo A Mi Manera. She married Alonso Orozco in August.
2011 : in January, Fey gave birth to a child named Isabella
2012 : in June, Fey gave a private acoustic concert in Mexico City, part of the Sony "Primera Fila" series, in front of 600 of her most loyal fans. She sung her greatest hits, as well as new tracks such as Frio, which is set to be released as a single in September, and a duet with Aleks Syntek on El cielo puede esperar.

Love is Paradise (1995)
Can You Keep A Secret ? (Apr 1997)
Follow Me (1999)
Producer : Mike Wonder
Musical team : Ralf 'Valentino' Orth, Mr Cobra
First Base is a German group that perhaps could be the best kept secret in Euro-Energy/Hi-NRG Dance Music today. It was created in 1995. Band members were a female 25 years old vocalist Tina Safrany (known by the stage name of Victoria) currently living in a small German village : Sattledorf, a mother of 3 years old adorable boy, and rapper called MC Flash. Behind the group is band's fantastic producer, Mike Wonder AKA 'DJ Wondermike' who's credits include remixes for various artists including No Mercy.
Back in 1995 they released their first single on BMG (Germany) entitled Love Is Paradise. Music for this track was composed by Ralf 'Valentino' Orth, Mr. Cobra and Mike Wonder, lyrics was written by Ralf 'Valentino'Orth, Ameer Williams and Mike Wonder. For some reason that vocally andinstrumentally brilliant track did not make much of a stir and for themost part left unknown. Folling the big success in this country, In January 1996 the song was released by BMG Canada on a CD compilation called Club Cutz 7, instantly becoming a mega hit. The song had everything a good Hi-NRG song needed to work in the clubs. It's got a pulsating beat, great synths, powerful vocals and it hooked you like few other records could. This song was also nominated for the Best 1996 Song in First Annual Euro-Energy Cyberspace Awards.
Success of this track proned BMG Canada to release it on their other compilation Groove Station 3, a megamix featuring short samples of many songs. The RCA compilation Club Cutz 2 also featured this track.
The success of Love is Paradise in Canada opened up a window for a second single in Canada. In late 1996 BMG Music Canada released exclusively the bands second song Heavenly. This track was another thumper, containing a little bit more vocals than Love is Paradise, without rap. Although it could not be considered as being as strong as the first single, it was still a great song. Heavenly was never released as a single and appeared only on BMG Canada compilation : Club Euro 3.
Their new single was released in April 1997, and appeared on the new Club Cutz 8, yet another Canadian exclusive and was called Can You Keep A Secret ?. This track was released in Canada on 12' as limited edition for DJs, but was not released to general public as a single. A brilliant track, wtill featuring Tina's powerful and beautiful voice. The track and group were nominated for the Best 1997 Song and Group in Second Annual Euro-Energy Cyberspace Awards with good results (4th location in both categories). The track was included on BMG Canada another megamix compilation called Groove Station 4.
In the summer of 1997 the group was on tour in Canada, and their most current tournee as part of BMG Canada event called Groove Station Tour to promote Groove Station 4, took place in 1998 (again in Canada) from June 11th to 29th. They played 12 concerts, starting in Vancouver followed by concerts in Victoria, Calgary, Saskatoon, Toronto, Winnipeg & Thunderbay.
In the beginning of 1999 plans to release a new track called Follow Me was finalised. It was included on an EP which also featured their previous hits.
2007 : Love Is Paradise was covered by Vito V feat. Anna Berardi.

Until I Die (2009)
Produced by DDM .
Italo-American singer Wanda Fisher began her artistic career as a vocalist in Italy after she left the States with a singing and solfege degree obtained at the Saint Cecil’s conservatoire.
She reached the top of hit parades in Spain, France and Germany with the songs Meteor Man, Chariot, Call me, Wuthering Heights and the eurodance single I Wanna Feel The Music.
Parallel to her solo career, she collaborated in many occasions with great names of the Italian music, from Mina to Vasco Rossi, from Lucio Battisti to Fabrizio De Andrè and moreover with Ivano Fossati, Adriano Celentano, Vasco Rossi, Miguel Bosé, Riccardo Cocciante, Cooper Terry, Edoardo Bennato, etc.
An encounter with Gian Piero Reverberi, who founded the group Rondò Veneziano and has worked as musician for the most important Italian artists (Mina, Vanoni, Dalla, Ramazzotti), has utterly concurred to her artistic development. Their private and professional relationship during many years permitted her to meet the most important names in the Italian music industry. Thanks to her unquestionable resemblance with the singer Ivana Spagna, during the golden ages of the Sanremo Music Festival for the Verona's singer, Wanda became famous for some strange and curious events, which saw her involved as identity exchanger.
Wanda Fisher is actually involved as a Guest Star throughout the country in TV shows and Clubs.
2008 : Wanda recorded a single entitled Dance House. She is working on new material planned for release in September.
2009 : Wanda released a cover of September's hit Until I Die.
2016 : she was sued again by Ivana Spagna who accused her of using her names in lookalikes show. Wanda replied that she never pretendec to had be Ivana, and that she has her own carreer.

When asked about an album, Waterman answers : "Probably. I'm not convinced that we have an album worth issuing. I think we've got five or six good tracks. I don't want to put my mistakes out to people. I don't think that does any good. I try to put out records I really feel are statements and I don't mean that in any big way, I just mean good records."

Fictional (11th Jun 2015)
Jessica Elisabeth Angelique Folcker was born in Täby, a Stockholm suburb, on July 9th, 1975. Her mother Annette is Swedish and father Louis is from Senegal. She has a brother called Isac
Jessica entered a music school at the age of 6 till she was 17. In 1994 she was selected to represent Stockholm in the Miss Sweden competition.
Her big dream to become a singer, was fulfilled when she was engaged as a backing singer for the international superstars Ace of Base and Dr Alban. She was the voice on Amadin's eurodance single You Make Me Feel Alright. She also performed the chorus in Leila K's hit Electric and appeared on E-type's album The Explorer.
Then she started a solo career, first under the simple name Jessica. Her debut album, also entitled Jessica and released in the autumn 1998, was the result of a collaboration with the world famous composers and producers Max Martin (Britney Spears) and Denniz Pop who became her boyfriend. The album was an instant hit, and Jessica became an international star overnight. As a result, she did a six week long promotional tour across the East Asian countries : Japan, the Philippines, South Korea, Taiwan and Thailand, resulting in high sales in the region, including selling gold in South Korea, where her remake of a David Foster classic, Goodbye, was used as the theme ballad in a major Korean movie, A Promise, rapidly becoming the most played song on Korean radio.
In Sweden, Jessica peaked the top of the single chart with two singles from the album How Will I Know Who You Are and Tell Me What You Like (#10 in the Swedish Single Top 60 charts), both selling platinum. Jessica Folcker became historic when she won two prizes at the awards show of Sweden's number one pop radio station, NRJ. There she won both New Artist of the Year as well as Swedish Female Artist of the Year. No artist had won more than one award until then.
Two years after releasing her debut album, in the autumn of 2000, Jessica Folcker's second album came out, called Dino, nicknamed after Denniz Pop, one of her producers. This time, the album was released under her complete name, for legal rights reasons : the name Jessica was protected. Besides Europe and Asia, Jessica wanted to conquer the USA as well this time around. She faced a problem however, many Americans pronounced her surname close to "fucker". To prevent this, she decided to take the "artist name" Jessica Folker instead, without the c. Jessica's first single from the album, To Be Able To Love, became a big hit in the states thanks to a remix by a US DJ with the name of Jonathan Peters, and soon Jessica went on a club tour to New York and New Jersey.
On the other side of the globe, another of Jessica Folcker's songs - Lost Without Your Love - became once again the theme tune of a Korean film : Indian Summer. Once again, Jessica reached the top of the South Korean airplay chart. In April 2001, Jessica's song Miracles was chosen as the theme melody for the Dutch Fame Academy replica, Starmaker. Due to this, she decided to release the song as her second single from the album. Jessica's last single taken from Dino was Crash Like A Wrecking Ball.
In Summer 2001 To Be Able To Love was released in the USA. Thanks to a remix of DJ Jonathan Peters, it became a big hit in the USA. In October and November 2001 Jessica did a clubtour in New York and New Jersey. The mix of this song could also be found on the soundtrack for On the Line, starring *NSYNC-ers Lance Bass and Joey Fatone.
2002 : Jessica's voice was featured on Bomfunk MCs's single (Crack it) Something Going On (a cover of an ABBA track) which peaked to #26 in the German charts top 100. in September she took part to a homage concert to the Swedish group Abba, singing a version of The Name Of The Game. In December, she appeared in the new Fashion Programme Aktuelle on the Swedish Channel 5:s.
In 2005, Jessica debuted in the Swedish national selection for the Eurovision Song Contest. In Melodifestivalen 2005, she performed Om natten.
2006 : Jessica participated to the third semi final heat of Melodifestivalen 2006 on March 4th with the song When Love's Comin' Back Again. She failed to qualify from the semi final. The same month she gave birth to a baby girl, a little sister for her son Antonio (1,5 years old).
2007 : Jessica Folcker's new album Skin Close, a close collaboration between Jessica and producers Andreas Kleerup and Andreas Unge, was released in May. The first single was entitled Snowflakes. It featured remixes of Credheadz, Konstruction and VeeBeeO, along with a video directed by Ensrettet.
Her hobbies are eating, watching movies, being with family and friends, and shopping. She admires her mother, Madonna, Stevie Wonder, and Prince. She admits to be very supersitious. One of Jessica's dreams would be to open a little restaurant with Italian food and entertainment in the evenings, and to have a house on the countryside with a nice husband and children, have her own animals and make her own food.
2012 : she appeared on stage of Melodifestivalen, along with DJ Håkan Lidbo (Look Twice) and Cleo, for a mashup including Leila K's Electric.

Under Pressure (1994)
She was born in Cincinatti, Ohio, U.S.A (her real first name is Pennye) in 1964. Her father was Gene Redd, who was an Executive Producer at King Records. After studying various musical instruments, Pennye joined a group called Reach, who toured extensively in Japan. Pennye returned to the U.S. and relocated to Los Angeles and managed to get work at Motown Records publishing company Jobete Music. Here she sang a few demo's of their tunes. Pennye then relocated to Total Experience Records and released a solo single entitled Change Your Wicked Ways. An album followed, entitled Pennye in 1984. The follow-up single Dangerous reached the UK top 50 in 1985.
She became Snap's female vocalist (her voice appears on The Power, Mary Had A Little Boy, and Oops Up) and, after she decided to leave the group, she introduced all the potential new singers to the producers. This was her only eurodance experience. Afterwards she went back to R'n'B and soul music.
This top session and concert vocalist has sung for Chaka Khan, Kool And The Gang, George Clinton and The SOS Band. She also contributed to the Gap Band (I Found My Baby) Barry White (his 1999 Staying Power tour), Rick James (Urban Rapsody), and Soul II Soul (Vol. III: Just Right).
In 1993, Pennye dropped the 'e' from ther christian name and moved to Columbia Records and cut the album Penny Ford, which was produced by Randy Jackson.
Her second solo album was released in 1993 under Columbia/Sony. The album boasted grade-A talent like producer/bassist Randy D. Jackson (Narada Michael Walden, Journey), saxman Gerald Albright, and pianist Greg Phillanganes. The lead single was a R&B charting hip-hop flavored cover of Aretha Franklin's Daydreaming. Ford's gospel-honed vocals on the inspiring I'll Be There - not the Jackson 5 classic - were impressive. Other standouts were the funky Nevertheless, the pensive mid-tempo Father Time, and the ballads All in Me and Wherever You Are Tonight, the latter co-written by Junior (Mama Used to Say, Too Late).
She beame a member of BWU (Black Women United). Some rumors say that she died recently (her sister Sharon died in January of 1992 from pneumonia). This was of course completely false.
Her most recent solo CD was released on Columbia Records with Randy Jackson (from real-TV show American Idol) as executive producer and on bass.
2007 : her voice was featured on DJ N-Joy's single When We Rise. She appeared in the RTL Germany TV show Ultimative Chart show in March and sung The Power with a young rapper.
2008 : Penny will appear on stage for Snap! for the 90s concert All 90s in Copenhagen on May 31st.

Alexia took part to the first single Don't Leave Me. She was then featured on Goodbye, which used the lyrics from 2 different Savage songs : Goodbye and Ten Years Ago.
Another Crack In My Heart was released as Alexia's solo carrer had started, so another vocalist contributed to the song. It could be Sabrina herself. This Take That cover was again a must in dance fans collections.
Follow-up single Everytime We Touch (a cover of a Maggie Reilly song) was released in 1997. The version by Cascada released 10 years later would be quite more succesful.

Diana Fox began her carreer as a part of the pop group Jump & Joy. During 2 years she travelled around the world with them, performing at major festivals and on numerous TV shows. Jump & Joy's hit single Vamos Everybody, had been a success around the world from Europe to Australia.
Diana has always had aspirations of starting a solo career and her collaboration with producer Marc Fox (resident DJ of 'Prater', one of the top clubs in Germany) made her dream a reality. The first single, Running On Empty, was a dance anthem in the making. Industry veterans compared Diana's music to the likes of ATB, Alice DeeJay, and Amber. Through her passion for music, her hypnotic vocal abilities and her incredible dancing skills, Diana is committed to bring dance music to the masses.
For the United States, Diana teamed up with the renowned New York DJ/Remixer/Producer, Chris "The Greek" Panaghi who had been praised for his amazing remixes of Da Buzz, Sarina Paris, Jessica Simpson, Ricky Martin, Michael Jackson and Gloria Estefan. DMA Magazine reviewer Scott Huffman compared Chris' Trancey Club mix to the classic Jonathan Peters' remix of Whitney Houston's My Love Is your Love. In addition to one of the many clubs where Chris was a resident DJ, you could hear his nationally syndicated radio show "The Island Underground" every Sunday evening at 9:00 PM.
In addition, Florida's Scott Christina's, (aka DJ Infinity, famed for his remix of the #1 dance single I Do Both Jay & Jane by La Rissa), Progressive Breaks mix is penetrating airwaves and filling dance floors throughout Florida. As Vic The Latino, Music Director of WPYO-FM Orlando puts it "The Progressive Break Mix is off the hook."
Diana is currently planning her US tour and is in the final phase of production on her self-titled album, tentatively scheduled to debut at the end of the year on the Prisoners of Dance Music label.
The second single to be released was entitled Sail Away, from the forthcoming album It's Me.
In 2006, Diana Fox was back. She changed her style, she nowadays sings schlager music.

He wanted to become a pilot and even had studied aeronautics in College in Miami. Because of the strike, the college students were forced to serve three years, and Franky did not like the idea so he dropped the school. His parents were not rich and he had to find a job. The easiest way was to join the army, so he did.
His memories from this time were not the nicest ones. He was later sent to Germany and when he was released from the duty in 1988, he decided to stay in Germany. At the beginning, he worked as an insurance agent, then he became a broker in Frankfurt (Germany). He did not enjoy the job, even if the salary was good. After a job as a restaurant owner, he became a DJ and started producing dance music with his friends. He was said to have released the single Oh Well under Westside, but record can't be found anywhere. In 1987, he released 2 singles with DeLee. He was previously married and had three children.
He started collaborating with producers Udo Niebergall and Richard Witte. In 1990, he released single Asi Megusta. In 1995 he released a cover of Sam The Sham & The Pharaohs' Wooly Bully (strangely renamed Wolly Bully) in the same style as 20 Fingers - Short Dick Man. He also took part to a project named Black Russian and released one single entitled Hi Hy Ho (Old Mc Donald), in the cow-boy eurodance style that Rednex had launched, that he co-wrote and co-produced.
The same year, he started the Captain Jack project with Udo Niebergall and Richard Witte. At the very beginning, he was only the studio voice, and did not perform on stage : a friend of him called Sharky Durban lipsynced. Success was huge, and project earned many gold and platinum records throughout Europe
Franky Gee loved cubanish food. He used to drive a Mercedes and loved music, flying, chess and moto driving. He hated cigarette. He spoke Spanish, English and German. He recently moved from Germany to Mallorca.
During summer 2002 Franky escaped from a car accident and during his recovery wrote a book in German entitled R.A.T.T.S. (Silent Death). In 2003, it was published under alias Frank G. Davies. It was an action thriller about an anti-terrorism organisation.
2005 : 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's son took the alias CJ Jr. to start his musical carreer. He recorded a song entiteld I Miss You, a slow rap in which he described his feelings about losing his dad. Then in a 2006 he released single I Love Reggaeton

She had previously took part to the german TV "Popstars"-Casting and the chance to be selected to become a part of the girl group No Angels. But they decided that two blond girls would not be good for this group, so they decided to take the singer Sandy instead. Then Franzi started the group "Fresh'N'Juicy" with another Popstars candidate. They released the two singles Life Is What You Make It and Dub-I-Dub. After that she danced with the Unique Dancers and was teacher at a Dance School. She still works in a Dance School in Bremen.

Free 2 Night is a trio from Ukraine and Russia, working primarily in Eurodance, Euro-Techno and similar genres. The members of the group are composer and arranger RealThing, rapper and lyricist Viper, vocalist and lyricist Ira Vain.
Free 2 Night was founded on 25th April 2012. Band members met each other in the Internet around summer 2011. In the beginning, RealThing offered Viper to make a nice midtempo euroreggae track. Some demos were made, but guys couldn't find a suitable vocalist so the idea was delayed. Soon, in July 2011, Viper met Ira Vain while working in a short-lived eurodance project (he was a rapper and a lyricsmaker and she provided the vocals). Despite working in another project, Viper still kept in touch with RealThing, who got a bit of success at the time, remixing BPM's song Music Rides The Sky for the first BPM's album Back to Eurodance in a pure eurodance style. Around the end of autumn RealThing and Viper asked Ira Vain to sing for their old reggae demo, which was completely reworked and remastered. That's how the Free 2 Night' first song, called Unity, was born.
The song was rather successful and more than that, RealThing, Viper and Ira enjoyed working together. They decided to create their own band and produce high quality eurodance tracks. Around the end of April 2012, Viper and Ira left their previous project, united with RealThing and officially established Free 2 Night, starting out loud with Rise Up – the spiritual successor of Unity.
Band's first maxi-single Music In Your Mind was released on the 5th of June 2012, containing powerful remixes by Eurotronic, DJ Walkman and Poison Beat. Their most recent song – Free Tonight, was presented on 10th of July 2012. Having a thousand of plans to do, Free 2 Night are going to revive the classical and pure eurodance sound, working under the motto “Free 2 Night - free all the time!”
In September, they presented their new single Stays The Same. Their next single Lost Control was a collaboration with Boris Pavlovic from BPM, released in November..

Nicki was born in Carlisle, Cumbria to mum Eileen and dad Joe. Music was destined to be in the family – dad played the drums when he was younger, and mum the violin. Nicki’s brother, Tim, is very musical too – a guitarist and singer who is a fabulous song-writer (he appeared on the writing credits of one of her sister's album). However, her two sisters, Allison and Carolyn, stayed away from music – probably plenty to listen to already in the household!
The family moved down to Tenterden in Kent when Nicki was four years old. Always a keen singer, one of her early memories was sitting next to the radio, listening to the new chart rundown and singing along to all the songs, when Auntie Sally, her Godmother, came in and said to mum and dad, ‘She’ll be a singer when she grows up’!
The first ‘gig’ came at the age of seven, when Nicki was chosen to sing a solo - the first verse of ‘O Little Town of Bethlehem’ at the Infants’ School Christmas Concert! From then on there was no turning back! A few years later she won the local talent contest, and within the year had joined her first band, Krisp, run by Tim and his friend Kelvin. They worked the most salubrious places – working mens’ clubs and holiday camps – wooh!
From the age of 16, Nicki studied Music and Drama at West Kent College in Tonbridge, Kent, passing her ‘A’ Levels two years later. At the annual college musical, she played the lead role of Laurey in ‘Oklahoma!’, earning rave reviews for her performance. She then moved up to London and started auditioning for bands and theatre shows.
Not many know that Nicki actually was part of a duo in the early 1980s – name of Whisky and Sofa! They released a song called Dirty Den, about the Eastenders character! It was played on the Radio One Breakfast Show... and that was about it! Amazing though, it was written by an extremely well-known writer, Barry Mason. He wrote The Last Waltz for Engelbert Humperdinck and Delilah for Tom Jones. Credibility sadly was NOT in existence on Dirty Den.
Nicki started working the pubs and clubs, moving onto gay pubs and clubs a short while later – The Spread Eagle in Shoreditch was her first! However the most exciting show for Nicki was at the Player of the Season annual dinner/dance at Tottenham Hotspur FC – her team! They had just signed a new player and were introducing him to the fans – a player by the name of Paul Gascoigne, and Gazza and all the other players got up on stage with her to perform a couple of songs – a special moment.
Nicki had been working on the gay scene for some time, when she made one of her regular visits to perform in a club in Cardiff, which was also the fateful night she met a certain Mr John Springate, who was to have quite an influence on her career from then on! John and Nicki hit it off straight away, and started what was to become a long association with his recording studio.
In 1991 Nicki was booked as the leading lady in a series of revue shows on a cruise ship, touring Europe and beyond and covering shows such as ‘Mack and Mabel’, ‘Oklahoma!’, ‘Paint Your Wagon’, ‘Calamity Jane’, along with more general tributes to Stage and Screen. Nicki has always loved Musical Theatre, and even now would relish the opportunity to take part in a big production, particularly in the West End.
Also in 1991, Nicki met Gavin, a trumpet player – they met on stage at the London Palladium, where they were both working in the band for the Irish songstress Rose-Marie! Eighteen months later they married in Nicki’s parish church in Tenterden, St Mildred’s, where she had been in the Church choir as a teenager, and a teacher at the Sunday School for over two years – she even ran it at one point!
Early in 1994 Nicki and John recorded a dance version of Bonnie Tyler's Total Eclipse of the Heart. A few months later Mike Stock took it on, re-jigged it and made it into the massive worldwide hit it was – the first release, and success, of his new record company, Love This Records.
Total Eclipse of the Heart, produced by Mike Stock and Matt Aitken, became the first big hit of 1995 by a new artist, reaching number five in the UK charts. It went to number two on the Billboard Hot 100, the highest placing in the UK by a UK artist since the 1980s, and spent six months in the chart there. It also reached number one in Australia, Japan, Brazil, Israel, Spain, Holland and Canada. Although she didn’t manage to fit in all the places, Nicki started touring extensively around the world with Gavin, finding that Total Eclipse of the Heart, and Nicki’s lively stage show, were a huge success wherever they went. The touring has never really stopped either, although it has calmed down a little now!
Her second single For All We Know, a cover version of the Carpenters' reached 42 in the UK singles chart due to poor distribution and a barcode error.The track was due to be released in America but due to a dispute between record companies only made it as far as a promo release
To cap a great 1995, Nicki’s success continued at the annual Dance Music Authority Magazine Awards in the USA, where she was honoured to win all three awards she was nominated for - Best Female Vocalist, Single of the Year and Most Promising Newcomer.
Nicki managed to achieve the often elusive international recording success, and in the summer of 1995 released her debut album, Secrets, which sold over 50,000 copies in its first week of sale in the USA. A second album, French Revolution, included tracks co-written by Nicki.
In March 1996, Nicki embarked on her first visit to Brazil, totally unaware of the extent of her success in the South American territories, where no less than nine of her songs have been huge hits, particularly Did You Ever Really Love me? (her personal favourite) and Te Amo. She subsequently returned to tour there five times in 18 months.
In 1997 Nicki was approached by Jim Steinman, the original writer of Total Eclipse of the Heart, and famous for his work with Meatloaf, Celine Dion, Cher and Barbra Streisand to name but a few! He had heard the French Revolution album, and wanted to work with Nicki. She then recorded a couple of tracks for his new record company, Ravenous.
Nicki carried on doing live shows around the world, then in August 1999, had another call from John Springate – the song he had for her this time was entitled Don’t Play That Song Again, written by John and Gerry Shephard (they were in the Glitter Band together back in the 1970s), and they were planning to enter it for Song for Europe – was she interested? John had never realised that Nicki was a HUGE fan of the Eurovision Song Contest – he does now! They recorded the track in two takes, and the song was put forward for selection. It then went through all the elimination rounds, and after the Radio 2 listeners voted it into the final four, Nicki ended up back in the Top of the Pops studio again, to perform the song live on BBC1. That was 20 February 2000 – a day she will remember forever. The song blasted the other entries into the water, and Nicki comfortably won the public’s vote – and support – thus fulfilling her childhood dream of representing her country at Eurovision in Stockholm, an experience she classes as ‘the most magical week of my life’. Although it didn’t win, the UK delegation did win one award – for Best Party during the week of rehearsals! Nicki’s popularity in Sweden since then is such that she was one of the headline acts at Stockholm Pride in 2001. In the Summer of 2003 she was invited to return and performed again – this time with her live band and singers. The audience reaction was amazing – even better than 2001, proving that there’s nothing like a live band!
In the lead-up to Eurovision, Nicki took part in many television and radio interviews, and a lot of people noticed how natural she was in front of the camera, which has seen her move more into presenting work. She is currently working on some pilot projects for the BBC, and is in negotiations to co-host a new regional programme in the South-East. She would also love to return to Musical Theatre, and has been in talks with several production companies.
In January 2003, Nicki was the only British artist to feature in an all-star line up for an ABC Television special in Los Angeles, ‘The Disco Ball – a 30-Year Celebration’, which was filmed at the Shrine Auditorium, home of the Oscars Ceremony, and included Gloria Gaynor, Whoopi Goldberg, KC & the Sunshine Band, Chic, Irene Cara, Usher, Village People... The show has since been repeated on tv around the world many times.
Nicki has taken part in many television programmes in her career, including Top of the Pops, GMTV, The Big Breakfast, MTV, FBi, The Cable TV Awards, After 5, Newsround, Esther, Nickelodeon, UK Living, Night Fever, BBC Breakfast and A Question of Pop. However the most recent programme Nicki took part in was ‘The Weakest Link – Eurovision Special’, which will be shown just before the Eurovision Song Contest this year on BBC1, on Saturday 15 May. The show should be great fun to watch – don’t miss it!
She provided backing vocals on the 2006 release of New Emotion's 9 to 5 (Energise).
Nicki has just returned from Spain, where she linked up with John Springate again, and they have recorded three new versions of old Eurovision favourites, which will shortly be available to buy on the website – keep an eye out for them! She is about to go back into the studio in the next couple of weeks to record a new track, which is planned for release later this year.
Nicki has never had children, but back in 1991, after eight years of asking, Gavin finally got his way when she agreed to get a dog – Satchmo the English Cocker Spaniel is now two and a half years old, and ‘THE most wonderful dog ever!’ (Nicki’s words).
2014 : Nicki's new single was entitled The Boss.
2015 : she released a new single entitled This Love as well as a Eurovision E.P.
2017 : Nicki is working on a new single entitled Teardrops (On the Disco Floor)

In The Middle Of The Night (15th Dec 2014)
Their first single No Naggin Anymore was used for the manga cartoon Sakura. The female vocalist is dancer and actress Bettina Antony (real name : Krystyna Ferencowicz) and she has Polish origins. Before entering the group she was a member of the Coco Girls, (a group of models well-known for their sexy appearances on the French first channel in the 80s and for their hit Ce Mec Est Too Much), then became a dancer at the Crazy Horse Saloon from 1991 to 1995 (under the name Cristy Balalaika). She then did some modelling for Pierre Cardin and appeared in some TV shows.
Bettina collaborates with the French (Canadian ?) producer Pascal Caubet along with the Italian production team T&F (Franki Tamburo and Mauro Ferruci). The name of the project emphasizes with humor its French origins.
The video of No Naggin Anymore was shot in 2 parts : they first filmed Bettina and her dancers against a unite background, then the technicians worked during 3 weeks on the animations and special effects.
The second single Razzmatazz was then released and it became quickly a hit.
2007 : Bettina recorded a solo album under the name B-Tina entitled Laid back. One single was released from the album, called Je veux revoir ton sourire (meaning : I want to see your smile again).
2012 : Bettina refounded the Coco Girls with 3 new performers (Charlie, Ophélie and Perrine), and currently tours in France and Belgium. They recorded an album entitled Coco Loco which includes a 2012 version of Ce Mec Est Too Much.

Musical team : Bulent Aris, R. Kesselbauer, Tony Cottura,
Vocalists : Balja, Marie-Anett Mey, Anett Möller
Fun Factory started as a studio project in 1990 by Rainer Kesselbaur. He released a synthesizer-sounding Fun Factory's Theme for the first time in 1990 under a small record company near Bremen, as a vinyl only, in small quantity. The B-Side of the vinyl has a slow synth track titled Apelonia. But it did not have much success. In 1992 Rainer decided to release the Funtech Mix of the original Fun Factory's Theme song, this time along with 4 different mixes.
Then, the style turned to eurodance, and the project got faces. There's Marie-Anett Mey, the front lady of French descent (born 3rd June 1971), Smooth T (Toni Cottura, born 7th June 1971) the Italian dancer, rapper and background singer and Steve (Stephan Browarezyk, born 15th of January 1972), the dance partner from Germany. American rapper and freestyle king Rod D (born 24th May 1969) rounded out the Factory crew.
With their high-explosive mixture of pop, dance, rap, techno and reggae elements, they achieved international acclaim and their singles topped the charts the world over. Tracks such as Groove Me (# 1 in Israel Dance Chart, # 5 in Israel Air play), Take Your Chance (# 3 in Israel Dance Chart), Close To You, Pain (# 30 in Israel, # 5 in Israel Air-play, remixed by ATB) and most of all I Wanna Be With You (once again remixed by ATB) and also Celebration made their way into the top ranks of all important at Media Control and Dance Charts. And not only in Germany, Fun Factory tracks have climbed high in the charts in Canada, England, Sweden, the Far East, Finland, Poland, France, Italy and in the USA as well, and have made the group one of the most remarkable European acts internationally.
The members see themselves more as a band in the classic sense of the word, influenced by the spirit and roots of R&B, but taking full advantage of the most modern studio technology, Fun Factory won't allow themselves and their music to be filed away under any particular category. "The main thing is that it grooves, it kicks, it beeps and that the people feel good..." is Smooth T's answer when asked about the group's secret recipe for international success.
During 12 months they toured three times in the USA, in South East Asia and in the whole of Europe. Doing shows and having a direct contact with their public was very important for the band members too. Their stage act was pure entertainment, conceived and developed to perfection by Steve and Smooth T who both had a background in the martial arts. "Combining elements of the martial arts and dance creates something totally new. We don't want any lame disco choreography, we want real action entertainment" explained Steve.
When not performing live, Fun Factory could be found, often for nights on end, in their studio in Hamburg working on their tracks with the support of the many friends who help out now and again with vocal parts, guest raps and instrumentals.
Fun Factory's music speaks to anyone and everyone and forces all who listen 'into the groove' which for Fun Factory is what it's all about. It's as simple as it sounds "We want fun" says Marie-Anett, "that's our philosophy and there's really nothing else more important".
1994 : their first album was out. Non Stop, including their first and best hits, all mixed one after another. At this time, the female vocalist was not Marie-Annett yet, but Balja, who afterwards left the group. Her voice can be heard on few of the songs of the album, such as Prove Your Love. Marie-Annett's voice could be heard from the single Close To You. The track Love Of My Life was covered by the project La Verona (Verona Feldbusch).
According to some rumors, Balja could have been the one and only vocalist, Marie Annett being unable to sing anything. It's a fact that Marie-Annett thanks Balja on every album of the group...
After a few years, Balca stopped singing for Marie Annett. A new studio vocalist entered the team, Sara M. Baker. She had to imitate Balca's voice a little, so that people wouldn't notice the difference. The songs she contributed to were never officially released, they were only used for stage performances. She also recorded songs for some other projects produced by Fun Factory's producers.
1995 : the title of the second album Fun-Tastic was really programmatic and the 'good time dance machine' presented an ultimate, highly concentrated smash album for the Christmas season. Massive grooves, very catchy refrains, bitter-sweet soul ballads and sharp raps combined to an ingenious essence of all styles that had made dance the most important pop genre of our time and guaranteed numerous encounters with Fun Factory.
In 1997, Toni Cottura left the band, later followed by Rod D, Marie Anett and Steve. They were replaced by 3 new members : Al Walser (the new lead singer, rapper and composer), Tiger One aka T-roc (rapper) and the new female vocalist called Anett Möller.
1998 : in the end of summer the new Fun Factory released a single called Party with Fun Factory. It was a huge success and remained #1 during 5 weeks consecutive weeks.
In March 1999 they released their new album : Next Generation. Produced by Team 33, recorded in Hamburg in Germany, it was pretty successful, since it sold over 100 000 copies. The Japanese version of the album included 2 extra tracks. In July came another album, entitled Next Generation 99. It contained only 11 tracks : including the Cool Mix of Party With, the Single Mix of Sha-La-La-La-La, Party Message (actually the song Sing Along renamed), Fun Factory 99 (The Theme under a different title), the hit Close To You by the first FF team, Next To You Baby (same as Next To You with a slightly different title), and finally a different version of Ready To Flight. Lian Ross contributed to the album in studio, it could even be possible that she did all the vocals, Anett being just lipsyncing on stage.
2001 : Sara, the new studio vocalist who had succeeded to Balja, appeared on 4 Elements feat. Sara M. Baker - Phobia City.
In 2002 Fun Factory released a new album in Japan only. It contained 14 brand new tracks plus 2 remixes and was entitled ABC Of Love. Music was composed by Justmann, Kesselbaur, and Crotti. Lyrics were written by Justmann, Croom, Walser, Kesselbaur and Crotti.
2003 : Fun Factory recently decided to split up and cease their musical activites. Rod D had gone back to the USA and stopped doing music. T-roc aka Tiger 1 started a solo carreer in Romania.
2004 : Sara did vocals on Cheeka Another Saturday Night
2005 : I Wanna B With You was covered by a group called Da F.U.N.K.
2007 could be the year when Fun Factory will rebirth. The new producer and manager, Rekardo Heilig, organized a casting for 2 singers (male and female), a rapper, and a background-singer for the group. The castings went on until the end of February. They promised a Fun Factory summerhit for 2007 but finally nothing came out.
Al Walser, leadsinger from the second Fun Factory, just released a new song called African Queen, featuring the rapper Que. The video features Miss Eritria 2007 (Semhar Tadesse) and Miss Switzerland (Nadin Vinzens). As for Annett Möller, she is now working for a German TV channel called N-TV.
Toni recently confirmed that Balja was the original and only FF singer. She sang every single song on all their albums, which means Marie-Anett Mey did not sing at all. Her name is actually spelled as Balca (with a "c" not a "j") and it is a Turkish name.
Balca recorded a brand new song with Toni Cottura called Stop Playing Tricks With My Heart. Her new solo album should be coming (hopefully) this year. It will be in the FF-Style and it will be produced by Toni Cottura himself.
2008 : the new Fun Factory team has been revealed. There is Douglas, the new rapper, born in Hamburg, also a talented breakdancer. Jasmine and Joel are the new vocalists. Jasmine has been learning dance since the age of 4, she did background vocals for the project Love Machine, and also contributed to the Girl band The Sweetheartz. Joel spent 12 years at the Waldorfschule, appeared on stage with Lee Ryan and more recently in a Maggi soup commercial. And finally there is Lea, the new dancer and choreographer. Before entering the new Fun Factory, she did some modelling.
A music label called Fun Factory was created. The new album was first told to be called In The Heat Of The Night, then renamed Storm In My Brain, and the new single should be Fiesta De Samba.
Al Walser's new album should be released in September.
Annett Möller, from the second FF team, went back to Germany where she did 3 years acting studies in Hamburg. After contributing to RTL-Aktuell, working as a reporter for RTL Nord, she now currently working for the German channel N-TV as a moderator, appearing in the broadcast N-TV Wissen.
In July, the new Fun Factory team changed : the dancers Lea and Joel were replaced by the dancer and background vocalist Jenna and the dancer and rapper DGS. DGS became a member of Phen-O-MENIA, a new Rekardo Heilig project, along with Lea.
On August 11th, it was revealed that, to fit the fans' demand, Fun Factory's new single would not be Fiesta De Samba as originally planned, but Be Good To Me, a track closer to the usual Fun Factory style.
The band name "Fun Factory" has been re-registered by German producer Rekardo Heilig for the 3rd generation Fun Factory. Even though, this name has been re-registered, Toni Cottura announced on his official website that he planned to release material under the same name. The problem is, since it has been re-registered by Heilig, Cottura does not have the rights re-use and release any material under "Fun Factory" in Germany and Europe. Anyway, 8 tracks have already been recorded, with Balca on vocals...
2009 : Fun Factory Third Generation recorded a new single entitled Shut Up. It was actually written by Torsten Abrolat... and Toni Cottura !
2010 : Fun Factory third generation will shoot a new video clip for their single Uh La La.
2011 : X-Trans ft.Selini covered I Wanna B With U.
2012 : Fun Factory 3rd generation announced that the title of their new single would be Nymphomaniac but finally nothing came out. At the end of the year, all members were replaced by new ones : 2 boys (Crash and Dominique) and 2 girls (Ela and Lisa). A new single was planned for March 2013
2013 : once again a change in Fun Factory third generation performers team : Crash was replaced by American rapper Wyll (former member of Captain Hollywood Project crew and of DSDS Choir). Title of forthcoming album was revealed : On Top Of The World. It was also the name of the new single.
2014 : the team is now made of DGS, Diana, Douglas, Diana and Wyll. In January, it was announced that next single would be entitled B' Bang Bang and that it was coming soon. Then, in Ocotber and after 17 years, it was revealed that original Fun Factory members, Smooth T., Balca, Steve and Ski were officially back
2015 : Fun Factory's released a new single entitled Let's Get Crunk.

Being put up in the mid-eighties they immediately became successful due to their big hit and all-time classic song Happy Station. Even though the covers present only two girls (among them the model Francesca Merola), it has already been proved that the highly talented Ivana Spagna also was a part of the world famous Italo group. In fact she is singing in all songs except for I'm Needing You were Annerly Gordon took over. In some she was lead, in other just backing. Some other voices who contributed to the project were those of Antonella Pepe and Angela Parisi.
After many hits like Baila Bolero or Gimme Some Loving, they disappeared off the label when Italian eurodance music replaced Italo disco. They made their comeback with a superb eurodance track called I'm Needing You, containing the speeded up vocals of Annerly and one of the original singers. Unfortunately they disappeared again after that single. They also released a 10-minutes during megamix containing all their hits. The remix was done by Martin Boer from 2 Brothers On The 4th Floor .
