Records company : SAIFAM Publishing Group. Radiorama's first release, Chance To Desire is dated 1984 and was result of co-operation with Martinelli. This track had an incredible success in the clubs in Germany and Switzerland (where it peaked up up to #18). It featured Simona Zanini (who had also cowritten the single) along with Hank Schostak (who also appeared on the first album track Watcha Gonna Do).
The second one, Desire, published exactly on Christmas eve, was the Radiorama's gift for all lovers of Italian discomusic. The idea for this record was taken from the maniac of Florence, who terrorised the lovers in Tuscain. The results was a kind of horror film sound track, but on trail of Italian melodies. It was once again a success in Switzerland, reaching #17.
From Desire, all the songs have been written and produced by Farina-Crivellente, along with Paolo Gemma. Their success began with these two titles and with all their songs they entered all the charts world-wide. Vampires was #7 in Switzerland. One of their most famous song was Aliens, that reached top ten of all European Hit charts (for instance, #5 in Switzerland). With the first album Desires and Vampires in 1986, they have entered the Hit charts in numerous European countries and became famous worldwide. At that time they started their tours.
After a break, they started producing again in 1990 with Farina-Crivellente, the producers that were responsible for their success. In 1993, they released Your Love as vinyl. It contained 4 versions : Factory Team Edit, Bernd HSB Edit, V.D.A Edit, and Full Power Edit. The song was written and composed by M. Farina and R. Stecca, published by S.A.I.F.A.M/Mela Music, produced by ZYX Music, label: 21st Century Records
Both released in 1995 : Little Bird and Let Me Be were the follow-up singles. Then came Touch Me Now and Like An Angel the following year. All of the were excellent eurodance tracks. 1997 saw the release of 2 singles : 'Cause The Night (already released by eurobeat project Sarah) and Di-Da-Di
1998 : after a 2000 remix of Alien, the group released several new tracks. Give Me The Night, then Beautiful Man were on their way to become club hits. In 1999, the single More Time was released, followed by the famous Ninna Ninna Oh, featuring the voice of the TH Express vocalist.
Radiorama's last single to be released under the label 21st Century was Total Eclipse Of The Heart in 2002. It featured vocals by Melody Castellari.
Simona Zanini was Radiorama's vocalist on the first singles released (for instance, Chance To Desire). Cristina Dori took part to the track It's A Lonely Wait. It more than probable that Clara Moroni was featured on Fire, ABCD, Bad Boy You, 3 4 Gimme More. The female vocalist officially presented during the 90s period was Antonella Ferri, 25 years old, born in Milan. Her eyes are brown, she plays keyboards. She likes rice and Margarita. Her favourite color is black. She likes riding and owns a horse. Her favorite music was jazz. Melody Castellari could the the voice on Total Eclipse Of The Heart.
Aldo Martinelli did the male vocals on the first Radiorama release Chance To Desire. Then Mauro Farina replaced him on the following singles. The official male vocalist in the 90s was Angelo Morales, 26 years old, born in Venice. His eyes are green, he plays sax. He likes pizza and gin fizz. His favorite color is blue. He likes rifting and latino music. It is more probable that he was only a dancer on stage, and that vocals were still done by Mauro Farina himself.
The other vocalists who contributed to the project (on the album World Of Radiorama) were Jakie B., Juliet, Ricky H., Fabio Serra. Rumors also talked about 2 others : Manuella and Umberto.
More recently, Melody Castellari contributed to a few songs.

DJ Ice K - Living On Video (2019)
Born in Belgium on the 17th of April 1966, Serge Ramaekers started showing his interest in music when he was a little child. At the age of six he built an organ with daddy's help, but realized very soon that you could do a lot more with a synthesizer. With the help of generous grandparents and parents, who believed in the ambition of their grand-son, he could develop a real homestudio.
At the age of 16, Serge started a DJ carreer, first with a mobile show, then in big clubs like Highstreet, Carre, Reflex, etc. Progressively he reoriented towards composing, lyrics writing and producing. He produced the music for projects like T-Spoon (with Dominic Sas), Confetti's, Cartouche (not only a European hit but also gained a billboard notation (number 61) in America, 2 Boys and lots of others), Good Shape, Dixie's Gang, Dinky Toys, Jamie Lee, Soul Dance Project and Stay-C. In 1998 he launched the group Confetti's. This new-beat dance-act lasted 3 years and avery single became one of the best selling records in almost every European country.
In 1989 Serge started to remix other artists singles. The first client was the Belgian singer Rocco Granata, who asked Serge to "dress up the song Marina in a new outfit"... The new version was almost as succesful as the original hit ! In 1993 Serge did an excellent remix from Freddie Mercury's Living On My Own. The remix enjoyed success throughout Europe remaining at number 1 for several weeks across the charts. He also did remixes for Twenty 4 Seven, Technotronic, Eartha Kitt, Grandmaster Flash & Melle Mel, Wee Papa Girl Rappers, Lolo Ferrari, George Clinton, Rocco Granata and The Night People.
In 1999 he co-produced , with Phil Wilde, the project The Force feat. BB Queen (If I Could Turn Back Time, written by Diana Waren, released in 1999). In 2000 he released a single-CD under the name DJ Serge & Remy : Groove Me with 4 mixes in year 2000. Remy is none other than Remy de Groot, who contributed to T-Spoon's best older titles. More recently in 2002 he took part to the single Dreamer, under the name CK & Supreme Dream Team (Edel records), together with Martinez and Van Wauwe.
Serge Ramaekers is currently working with Patrick Bruyndonck on his very succesful project Orion Too (You And Me, Hope and Wait), featuring the voice of Caitlin (former singer for Astroline).

French records label created in May 1993 by independant producer Jean-Jacques Huet, former DJ Pierrick Chéruel (radio jockey for 10 years and promotion director of Airplay/Panic Records for more than 3 years) and former Sound engineer Claude Martenot. At first distributed by Carrere, it became Carrere's dance label when Airplay and Panic records joined Universal. Then it became a label of Dig It France.
From 1993 to 1996, artists such as After Touch, Anxious, Baya, Beat Box feat Helena, Brothers Of Sound Feat. Talya Jones, Cartouche, DJH, DJ Miko, Dj Cerla & Moratto, Climaxx, Dream Beat, Echo Bass (their first single), Groovology featuring Linda Mill's, Java, Kristy, Logic Dream, Paul Harris, Superfly, TPFF, Unity Power feat Rozlyne Clarke, and of course TH Express... had some singles licensed under Ramdam Factory in France.
French model and dancer born in Les Ulis (near Paris), Djanis Mitchell started his carreer at the age of 16. He was spotted by dance singer Abyale and toured with her as a dancer. He then became a member of eurodance project TH Express. It is not clear wether he really did the raps, or if he was only one of the project's faces, lipsyncing on stage like Fauve. Nowadays, under the stage name Djanis Le Sanguin, he records hip hop songs that he publishes on his Myspace account.
TH Express rapper (whoever he is) also contributed to some other SAIFAM productions (such as Little Adrian)

(Soren, aka Spike, Champ, Sønne)
Producer and writer for the group Aqua .
Soren was born on 13th of June 1969 in Blovstrød (Denmark). He is brown-eyed, 1,81 m tall and weights 72 kg. He has a sister, Lise and a brother, Jesper. His father is an architect and his mother a physiotherapist. He likes Mexican food, sushi and Korean BBQ. He also likes listening to the group The The, and collecting shampoo samples he finds in the hotels. His favourite movies are Evil Death 2 and The Celebration. He likes watching TV shows such as NYPD, the Simpsons or You've Been Framed. After his Business school, he became a salesman, then a paper boy. With ClausNorreen , he's been since 1989 a member of Joyspeed (they started composing music for a Danish movie) and enjoyed a solitary success in the Danish charts with Itsy Blitzy.
'People either puke when they hear Aqua, or they like it.' said Soren to a UK magazine recently. As a matter of fact, Aqua's is the sort of music which attracts no wishy-washy response, and together with Claus, Soren is chiefly responsible for establishing Aqua in the first place and producing said chunder-making melodies. He's not afraid to experiment; the first single that made the grade in their home country, My Oh My, found he and Claus playing 17th century instruments instead of the usual 20th century gizmos. Success has been a long time coming for Soren and the band, but when it finally hit, it with big: 'I think it's because we dared to be a bit different,' Soren explains, 'and got lucky!' First and foremost, it's making music that Soren loves : all the other trappings of fame he's not that bothered about. 'It's not much fun when we have about 27 interviews in one day,' he said recently. He misses his family too. 'We only get to see them every couple of months or so.' Whether he likes it or not, he's not likely to see that much of them in the future either, as Aqua continue their inexorable rise to the top of Planet Pop!
2004 : Søren Raasted created a project called Lazyboy, co-produced with Johnny Douglas (well-known for his work with George Michael, Kylie Minogue, etc.), featuring voices of artists such as Andrea Grant and Greg Geraldo. The album Lazyboy TV peaked on the danish album-chart as #14, and the first single Facts Of Life peaked as #2 on the radio-airplay-chart and #11 on the dancechart. The music wasn't dance but more "rhythm and speak".
Another track from the album Underwear Goes Inside The Pants did quite well on radios in USA, and the album was released in the US on the 2nd of November (actually it was released in 5 different languages in total). And success went on... With a #1 spot on the iTunes Usa download, and 7 weeks as top 5. He also enjoyed massive airplay on american radios and MTV. His 2 first singles were hits in many other countries as well.
2007 : he founded the pop band Hej Matematik (literally "Hi Mathematics") with his nephew Nicolaj Rasted.
2008 : Vi Burde Ses Noget Mere is the name of Hej Matematik's first album.
2009 : Hej Matematik won Danish Hit of the Year with the single Walkmand at Zulu Awards 2009. In November, they released the single Party I Provinsen.

I Believe In Dreams (1985)
I Believe In Dreams (2004)
Jackie Rawe started singing at the age of 17 and worked in dance bands for 18 months. Her first bands were The Ross Mitchell, and Ray McVey Bands. Then she got my first tour doing background vocals for Suzi Quartro. They toured Poland and Romania and it was on this tour that she met Gill Saward who introduced me to the Shakatak guys. Shortly after the Suzi tour Jackie toured with Sheena Easton, in the UK, America, Canada and Japan. After touring with Sheena she started working with Shakatak. At this time she also had two other projects going on. One was a band called Enigma and we had a top twenty record called Ain’t No Stopping and did Top of The Pops, and the other was called Minnie and the Metros, (I was Minnie of course, being only 4’ 10 3/4”). The record was called Charlie’s angel and was released through EMI.
Of all three projects Shakatak started to take off big time so she devoted my time to the band. They became famous in England, Japan and Europe. Jackie recorded three albums with Shakatak: Driving Hard, Nightbirds and Invitations and the later two went Gold. She left after the third album to work freelance but did work with them occasionally on other albums and tours. Straight after Shakatak she toured with Imagination and then Gary Numan. She also recorded one album with Gary, Machine and Soul.
In between the tours she I released a solo record : I Believe in Dreams, first released in 1985 on Fanfare Records. She re-recorded the track with Almighty Records in 1997. She was also featured on dance tracks by Midnight Sunrise : On The House and In At The Deep End (released in 1986 on Nightmare Records). In 1987 she recorded a duet with Paul Carrack ( lead singer with Mike and the Mechanics), called When You Walk in the Room which was released on Chrysalis.
In 1986 she started writing my own songs and had her first cover in 1987 with American artist Micky Howard. The song was called Baby Be Mine and went to number 5 in the American Soul charts. She co-wrote this song with Ashley Ingram, songwriter and bass player from Imagination. She signed a publishing deal with Warner Chappell Music in 1993 and have had songs covered with artists worldwide.
In the 90’s she did vocals and co-wrote a track called Kingdom of Love by Massivo, released on Debut.
In 1993 she had her son Zach and stopped touring to do session work. She was much in demand both as a session singer and as an accomplished songwriter. She has sung on many chart records including Elton John (Something About The Way You Look Tonight), Celine Dion (Think Twice) and Cher, and have been heard on many radio and TV jingles and adverts. She sung on Zeitia Massiah's 2 first solo singles, and on demos by Tony Di Bart. She recently confirmed she was the voice on Cappella's hit Move It Up. Under the stage name of Tasmin, she became the vocalist of Almighty records project Deja Vu. She also contributed to 2 songs of the project Bianca.
In July 2003 she joined a classical band called The New London Chorale. They recorded a Live album in Holland in September 2003 where the band have been established for 15 years. She has written one lyric on the new album The Young Mendelssohn.
Jackie just finished recording a solo album of songs with a spiritual, inspirational, and devotional nature in the lyric. The songs chosen were written over a twelve year period, and the musical flavour of the tracks varies from soul, funk, gospel, blues and jazz.

Musical and producing team : Jurgen Wind, Quickmix (Frank Hassas aka Ritchie), O'Jay
Real McCoy started in the Summer of 1989, when Reinhard Piel, A&R Manager of the german based label ZYX Records, called the little production company "Freshline Records" belonging to O'Jay, a musician and former photographer (he had already been part of a trio project called Masterplan, then took part to The Admirers and released the tracks Action! and Come Into My Life). Before this time they had already worked on a couple of other products with ZYX. This time they were looking for a cover "rap" version of the song Pump Up The Jam by Technotronic. A real artist at that time was not so important for ZYX, what they wanted was a quick production, something they could release ASAP.
O-jay wrote and recorded his rap within 2 days. They hired a studio vocalist for the female chorus part. The result was pretty poor (she was not even close to the unique voice in the original version) but they sticked with it, since we had no other option.
In the process of the writing, O-jay gave the "maginary" rapper of my voice the name M.C. SAR. He explains : "Since my English was pretty basic I produced a name that should have been "M.C. ZAR" but I used the german way of writing Cezar. I also added "The real McCoy" in the name (maybe even in the lines) to represent myself and not (like it is many times mistakently written) to represent the people behind the project. I knew already that I would not appear on the cover or even the stage for this song. So I gave my "fake" rapper a name and added myself into it with the trademark "The real McCoy"."
A week later ZYX had a finished production on the table. In that time everyone thought that this product would only be a "one timer", so they used the name of a project O'Jay created two years ago : M.C. SAR & the Real McCoy.
Pump Up The Jam made it up to number 16 in the German billboard charts. So when ZYX asked for a follow-up single, they went back to the studio and recorded It's On You (with Patricia Peterson as singer). "It was strange but we knew in our hearts and souls that this follow up single was a hit" explains O'Jay.
"The song was simple (like almost all of the self-composed songs we did). Ritchie worked with a bumping bassline and added some trendy synths on top. The beat was drumloop of a song called Break 4 Love by Raze. The beat was pretty popular, since a guy called Sydney Youngblood had a smash hit (If Only I Could), using the same beat. The rap was already recorded and we added some samples (we still liked that kind of stuff and still did not care of any copyright problems). Ritchie prerecorded my chorus melody." O-jay reminds. "Patsy was perfect for the song. Her voice reminded us a little of Wommack & Womack's Footsteps on the dancefloor. Somehow her voice was unique. Everybody was happy with the result and made the final mix for ZYX."
According to the official story, It's On You reached #1 in 12 countries and sold over 2 million copies world-wide. Actually, according to O-Jay himself, even if the single was very succesful, it only reached #1 in a chart in Spain (40 Principales). It was #4 in Austria, #8 in Switzerland, #7 in France and stayed in the French charts during 28 weeks, .
When ZYX wanted to produce a video and the clubs asked for shows at the same time, they just needed to find a face for the project for the rap parts, since O'Jay decided to use his voice but not his face. A year ago, when O'Jay met Patsy in the legendary Berlin club "Dschungel (jungle)" he was also hanging out with a guy called Shampro. He was a good looking black guy from France with origins from Zaire, a good dancer and he knew also a little bit about rapping. He was also fluent in English, German and French. "So I called him up and made an agreement. Of course everything needed to be organized pretty fast, since the song was already in the charts and still climbing up" recalls O'Jay. So on the peak of the success with It's On You, Shampro and Patsy were touring across Europe (Quickmix and O'Jay even joined the tour for a couple of concerts in France) while the producers went back in the studio to record the material for the album. They used a lot of different guest vocals, musicians and keyboarders, since they saw the whole thing still as a project.
As for the video, the budget was pretty small. O-jay had organized a photo shoot with 2 other photographers. He remembers : "It is a remarkable piece of crap but in that time we was pretty satisfied with the result".
The album On The Move ! and the third single Don't Stop were released in 1990. While the single still made its way into the charts, ZYX didn't manage to place the album in the charts. In the following years MC Sar & the Real Mc Coy recorded 3 more singles (Make A Move, No Showbo and Let´s Talk About Love) but somehow none of these productions made a big impression on the market. So for a while, it looked like the project had his five minutes of fame and would disappear from the music scene. But as we all know today, that was not the case, cause everything changed in 1993.
Vanessa Mason, an American whose father was stationed at a U.S. Army base in Berlin, joined Real McCoy during the recording of Another Night. Arista Records brought the group to the U.S. with the album and spearheaded the eventual recognition of the group as one of the break-out artists of 1995.
O-jay revealed that Patsy has never sung on any of the "new" M.C.SAR & The Real McCoy a.k.a. Real McCoy releases. The name of the original singer was Karin Kasar. She was casted by the Boogie Park studios in Hamburg and made a test recording with these guys on Another Night. This recording found his way on the final playback of Another Night. She was offered a little money to record some other tracks on the album, but never received any royalties for the whole album. Only Ritchie, David and the Berman Brothers knew her. O-Jay himslef never met her in all that time. A lot years later, he met her recently and had a chance to thank her for her great work and also to say that he was sorry that things turned out this way. She was never considered as the real artist because she had a few pounds too much on her body. That was the only reason and of course there was the reason that Patsy was looking the right way...
Their album Another Night, an explosive blend of Rap, Techno, and Pop, fueled by three smash singles (Another Night, Automatic Lover and Runaway), went Platinum (1,000,000 copies sold) in under 8 weeks and has since gone Double-Platinum. It peaked to #13 on the US Billboard Album chart. The exciting debut album included such hits as the Platinum-selling title track which hit Billboard's top 5 at place #3, went up to #2 in the UK, to #18 in Germany, to #42 in Switzerland, to #30 in Austria, and stayed #1 in Australia during 6 weeks.
It paved the way for Automatic Lover (#32 in Germany and Switzerland), the Top-10 Gold Single Runaway (once again #3 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, #4 in Australia, #6 in UK, #22 in Switzerland, #22 in Germany, #24 in Austria) and the follow-up top-20 singles Love And Devotion (which was remixed by Bass Bumpers and peaked #12 in the UK and in Australia, #16 in Austria, and #37 in Germany) and Come and Get Your Love (#18 in Australia, #19 in the UK, #53 in Germany).
The unprecedented success garnered the group awards for Best New Artist of the Year at the 1995 Billboard Music Awards, Best Selling German Artist at the World Music awards and nominations for Best New Artist at the American Music Awards and Artist of the Year for both 1995 and 1996 at the Billboard Music Awards.
In 1996 the group returned for One More Time, their highly-anticipated follow- up. One More Time featured O-Jay and Vanessa Mason along with their new addition to the group Lisa Cork. Lisa, a native Texan, had relocated to New York City to pursue her singing career. 'It's great singing with Vanessa', Lisa says, 'Our voices blend and compliment each other as if we grew upperforming together!'. The contagious sound of Real McCoy is the smooth harmonies of Mason and Cork layered beneath O-Jay's throaty rapping.
The lead single One More Time was exhilarating high-energy dance/pop. 'This time we feel much more in control of what we want to express through the music,' says O-Jay 'We've all grown and tasted both the trappings and pleasures of fame. I think the songs, while still dance oriented, are a little more reflective because our lives have changed.'. Single was covered by SAIFAM project M. Steven.
Along with the title track on the album wereTake a Look at Your Life,I Wanna Come, and the Billy Steinberg (Whitney Houston, Madonna) penned Love Save Me. The group also explored other genres of music with the ballad Look at Me, the jeep-funk sounding Love Almost Faded, and a re-make of Shania Twain's #1 Country Record (If You're Not in It For Love) I'm Outta Here.. In the production seat on One More Time were some of the heaviest hitters in music today, with tracks produced by The Bermann Brothers (Amber's This Is Your Night), Tommy Eckman & Per Alderbrat (Ace of Base), Bass Bumpers and J.Wind (Real McCoy's Another Night).
Sadly, Vanessa left Real McCoy afterwards (It was said she had been replaced by a vocalist called Lisa Styles). BMG Germany have re-released the album Space Invaders but under the name of Love & Devotion. One could also find in Germany some 98 remixes of Pump Up the Jam. Then a '99 remix of their first hit It's On You was released. But the team totally changed : O'Jay officially left the band and was replaced by a rapper called Jason Ammon, who lipsynced on O-Jay's re-recorded raps. There were also 2 new singers named Gabriele Koopmans and Ginger Maria Kamphuis...
This new team released their following single in April 2000 : Hey Now.
2002 : Rimini Project covered Another Night on their album Heartbeats.
2004 : there were rumors about remixes of the old hits of Real McCoy that would be released this year. But no company agreed to release them.
2005 : according to his songwriter, Real McCoy will start 2005 with a new single and a new label. The release is planned for May 2005 in Germany and Europe. Another Night was covered by Morgana.
2006 : a reloaded version of Real McCoy's hit Another Night was said to have been released in January. Actually, it's the O-jay.com re-recording of Another Night, to be released as vinyl under the label A45, with the same title (no reloaded added or something). It will include new female vocals and re-recorded rap vocals of O-jay himself.
2007 : Real McCoy started releasing new songs in a series called Additional Series. The 2 first songs were entitled 4 The Lover and Slave To My Feelings. The third one was just released, it's a cover-version of LaTour's eighties club hit People Are Still Having Sex. You can listen to it on O-'jay's Myspace. A brand new single and album are planned...
2008 : Vogue did a cover of Another Night.
2009 : O-jay is working on new Real McCoy tracks with Debbie Butts and Gemma Sampson, the new vocalists. The new single Two Hearts, a very nice and uplifting track, is on its way, it should be released in Autumn... They peformed it in Toronto Summer Rush in July and in Engelberg in August.
2012 : Project Mista covered the melody of Run Away's chorus in their single Never Hide.
2013 : Real McCoy's hit Another Night was covered by Earlwood

Spanish singer Rebeca Pous Del Toro, born November 1st, 1978 in Barcelona, is daughter of the singer Franciska and the painter José María Pous. Rebeca is a cousin of famous Puerto Rican Hollywood actor Benicio Del Toro, and also of poet David Ortiz Arglero.
She started her career in 1995 with the single Más que un engaño, arranged by Xasqui Ten (Speed Limit, Scanners, Essential, XTM). The label Max Music wanted to create a eurodance project with very catchy tunes and powerful music. She started a tour (Super 1) with the most important Spanish TV radio, 40 Principales, and soon arrived another great single, Corazón Corazón. Rebeca appeared in many TV shows, and launched her first LP, simply entitled Rebeca, with a new single (her biggest success, it's in every Spanish karaoke!) that went #1 in Spain and Mexico. The album sold more than 200.000 copies and gave birth to 3 other singles: Sólo amante, Cállate Ya and Piano Piano. She also appeared in the film Una Pareja de Tres.
Afterwards Rebeca released her second album Rebelde (1998). It sold more than 50.000 only in Spain, and made that Rebeca turn into Sandy in the Spanish musical Grease, the Original Sound Track of the Spanish act sold also 50.000 copies.
Rebeca left Spain and took her songs to America. Grandes Éxitos was the title of the album she released on the American continent (USA, Colombia, Venezuela, Mexico...) and there she also became popular. She recorded new songs with a latin touch, such as Mi forma de vivir, Yo soy Buena... were mixed with the great success of the well-known song Duro de pelar.
Brava, her third album, came in 2000, and it was also published in Spain. Then came Supernatural her 4th album. The song Tatuaje could be heard in the Spanish TV show Big Brother (Gran Hermano) and popularity came back to Rebeca. She sung with latin singer Innis the song Eres tú, and released two new singles for the summer of 2003: Eso no es amor and Calor.
In 2005 Rebeca took part of the reality TV show Aventura en África (the Spanish equivalent of the UK show called I'm a celebrity Get me out of here!) and she stayed till the 4th position. When she was out of the jungle her most popular song was re-released: Duro de Pelar Africa Remix 2005, and another Greatest Hits was launched in Spain at the end of the year: Lo Major de Rebeca.
2006 : Rebeca sent 2 songs in order to represent Spain in the Eurovision Song Contest. Unfortunately Las Ketchup were selected, and one of the songs sent (Lo Prefiero) was re-recorded by another singer. But, the other one, Qué No Daría Yo is now released by Rebeca and included in a Spanish summer compilation, Disco Estrella vol.9. The song starts slowly like a ballad, and it becomes early a great dance track with very commercial vocals and catchy tunes. The CD has sold over 100 000 copies in Spain.
2007 : Rebeca was selected to take part to the TV show "Misión Eurovisión" in order to represent Spain in the Eurovision Song Contest 2007. Futhermore, her song, I Love You Mi Vida has also been selected among more than 1000 songs that were sent to TVE. Rebeca herself was not selected as a singer (she stood 10th in the semifinal of Spanish TV show "Misión Eurovisión) but the boysband group Nash sung the song. Rebeca said she was preparing new material for a new record.
2009 : Rebeca tried to be selected to represent Spain at ESC with a rock track entitled Amor radical, but she wasn't selected.
2010 : Rebeca recently recorded a new album that will be out soon. The sound is announced to be eurodance... The first single is an uptempo song called Valentino Boy, with lyrics in Spanish and Italian. It has been included in the preselection of the Spanish song for the Eurovision Contest 2010.
In September, she has launched an advance of her new album : an EP with 5 songs: Matador, Valentino Boy, Much, Tu nombre and Se me olvidó. The new single is Matador, the video was shot in the disco "Cool" in Madrid.
2011 : Rebeca is adapting the 90's spanish eurodance tunes into new house music sounds. She tours in Spanish discos performing live with many DJs, and concerts (Orgullo Gay Madrid, more than 5000 people), becoming the the first Spanish vocalist singing house in her mother language.
2012 : Rebeca's first hit Más Que Un Engaño was covered by Sergio Cuho.

Members : Billy Ray, Bobby Sue, BB Stiff, Ken Tacky. Vocalists : Mary Joe (Annika Ljungberg), Scarlet (JulieAnne Tulley), Whippy (Mia Löfgren). Owner of the Rednex trademark : Örjan "Öban" Öberg, Jan Ericsson and Ranis "Pat Reiniz" Edenberg.
Rednex is the phonetic way of writing the word Rednecks, name given to the US South farmers during the 19th century. The Rednex concept is, according to their creators, "an organism of ideas, rather than built around certain individuals, which traditionally constitutes music acts. It can be compared to an open book where different authors write a chapter each, doing it whenever there are ideas and enthusiasm. Many people are involved. When it started, a bunch of friends that were musicians, producers, actors, video directors, art designers, stylists, animators, software programmers etc., decided to start a hobby-project to let out ideas that could not be used in their various commercial professions. These were controversial ideas with a dirty, non-esthetic, rough flavor, but with a general playful, partying and happy feeling".
The legend tells that, once upon a time, a Swedish producer called Pat Reiniz went to a town called Brunkeflo to search for his relatives that moved there in the 19th century. It turned out that the whole inbreded citizens of Brunkeflo were his relatives. Since they all were very talented musicians he took the bests of them with him to Stockholm and shut them in a studio...
In 1994, Rednex exploded on the charts worldwide. Their debut single Cotton-Eye Joe (originally a traditional folk song) was a European No.1 and went on to become one of the biggest dance-singles of the 90's, with platinum sales in UK and many other countries, and gold in USA. In Germany, they went multi platinum and stayed for a record breaking 10 weeks at # 1. It was covered by Italian project Isaac Payton Sweat.
It was followed up by two other #1 multi platinum singles : Old Pop In An Oak and the ballad Wish You Were Here (composed by L. Teijo and also released in an amazing dance version by Urgent C). The press revealed that the true singer wasn't Ken Tacky.... It was a countrysinger called Göran Danielsson.
After Wish You Were Here came the single Wild'n'Free. The follow-up Rolling Home was released afterwards under ZYX. It included 6 tracks, among them The Ultimate Rednex Megamix and new mixes for Old Pop In An Oak.
In 1997, Wish You Were Here was covered by Blackmore's Night on their album Shadow of the Moon.
Then they did not release anything during 5 years. The single The Way I Mate, which was very similar to the first hits, was not very successful. In 2000 they made an amazing comeback with the single Spirit Of The Hawk, which went to #1 in Germany and sold gold in less than 5 weeks, just like they did 5 years ago. It was used for the German version of the TV-game Fort Boyard. The song was at first recorded by an Axel Breitung studio project called Indiansphere, then given to Rednex (was it the price for authorizing Axel Breitung to cover Wish You Were Here a few years earlier ?). Then came Hold Me For A While, a ballad, and The Chase in 2001.
The amount of members in Rednex varies from day to day. The original squad that started the project is today living in various countries and several people has invited themselves into the project, creating what is today an international creative collective. Some people has left or taken a break and members go in and out as they please from their original work which constitutes of producing web sites, TV & radio, computer arts, design, media etc. Rednex is still regarded as a hobby-project for everyone involved, in spite of the commercial success, even though it's much more than a full-time job from time to time for some, especially for the performers on tour that are obviously also carrying the responsibility of performing when there are shows, which have been committed to. For example, in 1996 female voice of Rednex started a solo carrier as Annika but this project wasn't successful. Anyway she released album and the 1st single from it was called Flower In My Garden.
The Rednex creators explain that "Since there is no set strategy, apart from the original intentions that created this playhouse, it will always be unreliable to predict when there will be a new record or a tour. However, when it happens, it will likely be considered as the mischief of the music business as it is the nature of Rednex".
In 1997 the record-company ZYX-Music released the single Riding Alone. No one knew why, because it wasn't even a new song and not even the group-members knew about it...
2000 was the year of the Rednex-comeback. They brough a new singer named Whippy (Mia Löfgren) who replaced Mary Joe. Their male singer Ken Tacky left the group.
2001 : Whippy left the project and was replaced by Scarlet (JulieAnne Tulley).
2002 : There were some changes among the Rednex team. BB Stiff, Bobby Sue and Billy Ray argued with the legal owner of the band name, so they left the band, and recreated a new formation called "The Original Members of Rednex". Rednex very first female singer Annika Ljungberg took part on the "Melodifestival" to be chosen as "representative for Sweden" at Grand Prix d'Eurovision . The name of the song was Sail Away. Rednex released Cotton Eye Joe 2002, a remix of the hit that started it all... As well as a best of called Best Of The West which includes all their single plus 5 unreleased songs.
2003 : Mary Joe did some performances as Rednex Revival Band.
2005 : Annika Ljungberg (aka Mary Joe, the very first vocalist) has joined Rednex again, while Scarlet left after spending about 4 years with the group. Other members were Dagger (Anders Sandberg), Ace Ratclaw (Tor Penten) and Boneduster Crock (Björn Scheffler, from Germany). Annika got the power to run Rednex and represent the trademark through a contract ending January 1st 2009.
2006 : Rednex competed to be selected to represent Sweden at the Eurovision contest. The song was entitled Mama, Take Me Home. They were not selected, but the single sold gold in Sweden. Their next single was entitled Fe Fi (The Old Man Died). It was performed live at the grand opening cermony of the World Athlete Championships in Helsinki. Meanwhile, Scarlet founded the Rednex Tribute Band. Wish You Were Here was covered by Schlager singer Anna-Maria Zimmerman on her Love Songs album.
2007 : A "Memorandum of Agreement" was signed between Rednex AB and Annika Ljungberg on January 1st 2007 where she agrees to gain the exclusive world wide rights to use the trademark Rednex during a term of 2 years, provided that she pays a royalty percentage to Rednex AB and presents third party agreements for Rednex AB
Rednex and the Romanian band Ro-mania participated to preselections to represent Romania at the Eurovision Song Contest. The song was called Well-o-wee. They won the semi-finals but were finally disqualified by a TVR evaluation committee because the song was broadcasted publicly before October 1st.
In April, the Rednex project was for sale on eBay ! Auctions for the Swedish project started at 1 500 000 $... but ended without any bids. Annika explained that the reason why they were for sale is that their original creators were not really interested in continuing the project, and that the amount of rights they had to pay to original contributors everytime they performed their hit singles on stage and TV shows was so high that they did not earn any money at all from their performances.
Their hit single Cotton Eye Joe will be featured on the soundtrack of a Snoop Dog movie called Hood of horror.
2 new singles were released : Anyway You Want Me in March, and Looking For A Star in May. Looking For A Star was a country more than dance song which remained 5 weeks in the Swedish charts. A new album was initially planned for release in September. At that moment, members of the project were Mary Joe, Maverick and Snake.
In June, they gave a concert in Mangalia by the Black Sea in Romania, and the city honored them with their own stone in the pavement.
2008 : Rednex appeared with other great eurodance projects such as Haddaway and Culture Beat at the Hit-FM DiscoAward concert on 12th January in Kiev (Ukraine). After being disqualified in 2007, Rednex tried again to qualify for Eurovision Song Contest for Romania this year, with a new song entitled Railroad Railroad, once again a collaboration with Ro-mania. But were not selected. Cotton-Eye Joe was covered by projects Fun Tastic 3 and Starsound Orchestra.
In May they released they new single. Entitled Football Is Our Religion, it was composed for the Euro 2008 soccer championship. The same month, Scarlet released Wish You Were Here with Jan Wayne. She also wrote songs and recorded for German DJ Gollum.
Football Is Our Religion went to #1 in Sweden in the summer.
In September, a press release announced that the whole Rednex band would get exchanged from January 1st 2009. The new band would consist of the previous members Scarlet, Dagger and Ace Ratclaw and more. The current band, lead by Mary Joe, would from that date no longer have the permission by the Rednex owners to keep performing for Rednex. Her contract ended in January 2009, and "It was an experiment to let Annika get power over Rednex, since we were doing other stuff at the time", says the Rednex owners and founders via a press release on rednexforsale.com.
Rednex owners explained that have mostly been positive to tribute bands, even though they do not contribute economically. So the previous year, they did not appreciate when Annika tried to sue Scarlet's tribute band, all the more that they had legal rights to perform. "When she created ill will by suing people and also getting rid of Dagger and Ace, two of the best performers that we ever had, we lost trust in her ability and intention to maintain the welcoming attitude that Rednex stands for." Anyway, they realized the potential of their brainchild and got motivated to go back to it more seriously : "We somehow better understood the value of Rednex and that we need to take better care of it, and the first thing that we will do is to bring back the positive and explosive party atmosphere that has always been a part of Rednex."
"I am very excited to be back in Rednex", says Scarlet. "The music business is in a big and chaotic change at the moment. We have a lot of new ideas in the band so it will be a lot of fun to create the future and shake it up a bit. A little turbulence is something that we in Rednex always welcome."
2009 : the new Rednex are about to go back on a European club tour and a new album is being written. They will also perform with a "Wild West" musical that is currently in its casting phase and is planned to premier next fall in Germany. In November, the title of their forthcoming single was revealed : Devil's On The Loose. In December, they announced that it would be out on 7th of January and that the forthcoming album would be entitled Saturday Night Beaver.
2011 : Rednex's new single was planned to be Raise Your Glass but it was eventually withdrawn. Cotton-Eye Joe was covered by project Power Music.
2012 : current Rednex members were Dakotah, Misty Mae, Dagger, Ace Ratclaw, Joe Cagg and Boneduster Crock. But Scarlet would still be able to perform in the group too. Hence, Rednex could always play anywhere at anytime, with mixed line-ups, and this would also mean more freedom for all performers. In May, they released their new single Racing. Cotton-Eye Joe was covered by SAIFAM project DJ Kee. In November they released their new single The End. Videoclip was shot in September in Budapest (Garay Utca, Sörfesztival and Szimpla Kert).
2015 : second female singer Whippy (Mia Löfgren) rejoined the band to replace Flood. Boneduster Crock was back too.
2016 : a new single entitled Innit for the Money was released.
2017 : Rednex released a new version of Wish You Were Here, sung by Misty Mae, in memory of American Deputy Carl Howell.
2018 : the Rednex performers team included not less than 17 people. Most recent additions were Zoe, Moe Lester the Limp and Jiggie McClagganahan. They started a live streaming channel on Twitch, to live stream themselves 24/7 in connection to all their shows. The new single Manly Man was released in July, along with a video featuring Dagger and Misty Mae. In September Abby Hick, Rattler, Boneduster Crock and Joe Cagg left the project, while Whippy, Billy Ray and BB Stiff became reserves.
2019 : they released a Valentine Version of Hold Me For A While, featuring Cash, Jiggie McClagganahan, Moe Lester The Limp, Pervis The Palergator and Zoe.

Come Along 4 A Ride (1995)
Her real name is Regana (or Réjane) Magloire. She is the daughter of a Haitian father and a Polish mother. Magloire was born in Zaire, but grew up in New York. Reggie's musical carreer started very early early. The first time she sang with the Metropolitan Opera of New-York, she was only 13 years old. Having taken singing and dancing lessons from the tender age of 9 with Seth Riggs (singing coach of Michael Jackson) and Phil Black's school of Dance, she was already working as an actress and mode. During the Seventies, she appeared in about 200 episodes of the children TV series The Electric Company with talents such as Bill Cosby and Morgan Freeman (her father in the series). She played roles in theatrical films (such as The Story of Wilma Rudolph) and did many appearances for national US commercials.
Succeeding in all the castings she was presented to, Reggie was noticed during her concert with the MET by Reggie Thompson who proposed her to record for him. That song was Last Night A DJ Saved My Life and became within 8 weeks a #1 hit all over the world. This song is still considered as an anthem of the disco music and sold 9 million copies. It was covered by many projects, from It Takes Two to Mariah Carey. This huge success embarked Reggie Magloire to Europe and Asia for tours.

Producer of the groups Imperio and Decadance, and more recently DJ Visage.
In the hour of birth of Imperio only one man was present: the Austrian Norbert Reichart (1970). He is the man, who holds the reins of Imperio behind the scenes. You could think that the producer of Imperio has a special liking for Latin and that during his school-days he loved nothing else as Latin. That's wrong : he always had the worst marks in Latin! It would be better not to say the word school in his presence! He changed a lot of schools (without finishing his studies), he was the nightmare of all teachers and his marks were always the worst in the class. He asserts that the teachers did not understood his jokes and that he could became nothing else as a musician!!
Fortunately his musical career developed better than his school career! At the age of 6 he had his first piano lessons; at the age of 13 he received his first synthesiser and begun to record self composed songs. It was a long and difficult way before the first successes came. He begun to make disco music just for fun and that turned out to be the right decision to do the first steps in the music world.
In 1994 Norbert (he was 24) had his first big hit! From now on everything went quickly. Half a year later Imperio was born. 8 top hits in succession… In Austria all 8 songs became top ten hits! He produces his successes in his NR-Recording studios in the near of Wels (A). He works mostly alone. He composes, arranges and produces! He is a perfectionist and workaholic! If he is not 100%ing convinced of a product, he doesn't leave this studio.
Except for a few music projects (Decadance, Räpublik) and remixes (DJ Visage) Norbert devoted himself entirely to Imperio. He used to say: 'This is my baby and I want that one day it becomes very very big!'
Then in June 1997 in Monza, Italy, during Formula 1 racing he met the Danish DJ Martin Sig (that goes by stage name DJ Visage). The brilliant idea to produce a club hymn about one and only first class racing was born : it was called Formula. Followed another hit named Geil, then a remix of Time to Say Goodbye which was called The Return. On the single there were three mixes of the song, and three mixes of an original Reichart song called Dance !
2005 : he teamed with Erich von Däniken to release the single World of Mysteries, which went #4 in the Swiss charts.
He manages the label United Music and resides in Monaco.

2010 : Debora and James released their first single Not Just A Game under the project name Never2Loud featuring Pelé. Pelé is Débora's uncle. The track was an anthem for soccer World Championship

Born 23rd of November in 1969 in Munich (Switzerland), she is 1,74 m tall. Her eyes are brown-green, she has 2 sisters (Sandra and Sylvia). Hobbies : showdance and sports.
While she was still in school, the multi-talented Sagittarius with green-brown eyes went to practice every afternoon in order to complete her musical training. This training included ballet, jazz and tap dance, acting and singing. At the age of twelve, she managed to be one of two dancers to be chosen from a field of 2000 candidates for the ballet school of the Heinz-Bosl-Stiftung(foundation).
A lot of hard work, discipline and ambition helped her at the age of 16 to be picked from among 300 candidates for a role in the Elvis Presley musical in Munich. The "Elvis" musical was something really special for Nancy. She went to the auditionings in secret, because otherwise there would have been trouble at home, as she simply didn't attend her professional training. She had made it through the first auditioning and was called in for the second one, which was "not only" for dancing roles. It was a combination of dancing, acting and singing and that was just what Nancy liked. When she was offered several roles after the second auditioning, she felt like walking on air, because she had done it.
After the Elvis musical Nancy had quite some downs financially, to be honest she had a real tough time. She was very happy when she got an offer to take part as a dancer in a new year's show. It was a show celebrating different times and years, a kind of "history show"taking place in a theatre in Munich. At this time Nancy had so many plans to learn all the different dancestyles, which she did and she spent all her money on danceclasses. But if her mum wouldn`t have helped to pay for them, she probably would have never made it. Her mum stood behind her at all times and helped her even in these hard times. Sometimes Nancy got "extras" (minor roles in films) and even for appearances like this she was very happy to receive 25 euro at the end of the day.
In 1990-1993 she used to dance in a TV-ballet named the Preston Phillips dancers. She appeared on many TV-shows, such as "Baden Badener Roulette", "RSH Gold", "The Golden Europe Awards", in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland. This TV-ballet company became more and more successful and Nancy had a lot of fun dancing for them. The rehearsals for one TV-show took about 10-14 days and when you ask her today, what she remembers most of the rehearsals, she says : "The one by one dancing. That was horrible, when you had to dance a choreographie of 4 minutes on your own in front of everybody".
At the same time Nancy got her first offers for some fashion shows. From 1990-1995 she took part in more than 700 fashionshows. Often she only came home to unpack and pack her luggage, because from 1988-1994 she was living most of her time in London. Her journey took her from one country to the other and from one fashion-exhibition to the other.
Nanacy also got small roles on TV shows (like "Anna", a ballet series, and "Tatort" and "Der Alte", two German detective shows).
In 1993, Nancy gathered first experience in the field of pop music as background singer and dancer for Haddaway. She was a female vocalist for the projects 3-O-Matic, 2 For Good and Enflame then she joined DJ Bobo's team. She married DJ Bobo.
In 2003 she gave birth to her first son Jamiro.
2006 : Nancy is pregnant again. In August, she did a photoshoot during her latest months of pregnancy for a breast cancer prevention cancer.

The band has toured most parts of Norway and appeared in almost every TV Show in Norway.
In 2001 they presented a brand new live show, a new logo and of course new songs from the forthcoming album, that would be ready for release in late summer 2001.

Rob'n Raz was founded in 1988 by Robert "Rob" Wåtz (born in 1966) and Rasmus "Raz" Lindwall. They had won Swedish Championship of DJ mixing in 1988 (for Robert) and in 1989 (for Rasmus). They began at the same time to produce their own music.
The first singles with Daniel "Papa Dee" Wahlgren Competition Is None and Microphone Poet became hits in the major cities. After that, Got To Get feat. Leila K was released, it also became a hit around the world with over one million singles sold. It was followed by Rok The Nation (co-written by MC II Fresh), Just Tell Me (with backing vocals by Lizzie Zachrisson, it was not very successful) and It Feels So Right (which flopped too), still featuring Leila's voice. Afterwards, Leila went solo.
A world tour followed, the duo being the Swedish artists to appear on the scene of the legendary Appolo Theatre in Harlem. During the 90's, Rob'n Raz released several hits featuring different artists. For instance, Lutricia McNeal and D-Flex (aka DLC) contributed to the singles Clubhopping, Bite The Beat, Take A Ride, Whose Dog Is Dead and In Command. Power House is the only one among all these hits to be still played on the dancefloors across Europe. It's All Good featured the voice of Kayo in 1995.
Afterwards, Lutricia started a very sucessful solo carreer. D-Flex too, but he only released 2 singles : Don't Disrespect (in 1999) and Friday Night (in 2000).
Robert and Rasmus also did remixes for other artists (such as DJ
Bobo's Respect Yourself). They also contributed to many TV shows
: they presented the Swedish Dance Chart on Z-TV for several years. They
took part to the jury of the broadcast Mini Stars on TV4, they also contributed
to Turn and return on TV3. They created the show Star towards being
a star hosted by Rob'n Raz on Kanal 5. They presented the Morning show
on Powerhit Radio and had their own national evening show on Radio City
during the 2 past years.
Rob'n Raz are maybe still the greatest DJ-names of Sweden and are still playing on clubs nationwide. Everything from the most current music to "old school evenings" with 70's, 80's and 90's. Rob'n Raz also acts as MC's and hosts on events, company arrangement, presentations, exhibitions etc. Among pleased customers are Sharp, Vin & Sprit, Intel, Minolta etc.
2000 : with Markoolio, they contributed to welfare compilation Barn 2000 to help raise money for Rädda Barnen (Save The Children).
2005 : Rob 'n' Raz released in July a new single entitled The Snake featuring Lorén. Unfortunately for eurodance lovers, it was a slow RnB track.
2008 : D-Flex now collaborates with Basic Element.

As a teenager Indy's talent was discovered by his music teacher, with whom he'd later on sang at several small parties. The first song he ever sang was My Way, a Frank Sinatra song which Indy knew in the version of Elvis Presley. His mom was a huge Elvis-fan who collected all the records she could find. Indy sang along with all those songs, never aware of the fact his parents were listening closely, discovering his talent. It didn't come as a surprise to his parents though, since both his parents were musically talented, in spite of never having had the chances of pursuing an actual career. Indy's sister, Catyana, would follow in her brothers footsteps, years later, starting off a musical career also.
At the age of 12, Indy met Jimmy Lawton (Oklahoma, USA), who later on became his biggest influence, and also mentor. Indy convinced his parents to buy a guitar, since Jimmy also played the guitar, and Indy wanted to be exactly like him in every way. The admiration he felt for Jimmy went as far as getting him to work hours and hours trying to master the guitar, and proceeding to the level of an advanced country instrumentalist. Indy started participating in contests, winning close to every one of them. Then, the big day came, when Jimmy called him on stage to sing and play a few songs with him and his band. That's when Indy rolled into the country and rock scene, unstoppable and ambitious as never seen before. Indy became a steady "special guest" in the “Jimmy Lawton Show” and started off his career, finally, in 1977, under the name Ricky Travers. His first record (LP), With All My heart, was released in 1981. This record contained coversongs and selfwritten songs, mostly country music and crossover country. Indy later on got his own show in Bobbejaanland, at the Country Hall, which used to be the former home of Jimmy Lawton.
Pretty soon Indy got spotted by a producer (Leon lambrechts, Monopole Records) and started recording a few single records. All of these consisted of his selfwritten songs, and sounded like country with a touch of rock. He started doing tours, with - among others - : Jimmy lawton & The Hot Beaver band (with Stewart Barnes), Windfall, Hickory Wind, Travelin’ band, Rawhide, ... He also performed at Elvis-shows, which gave him great reviews. Elvis and country were in his blood … His career got to a sudden stop though, due to Indy being enlisted in the army, for one whole year (Communications services in Spich, Germany).
In 1985, when he returned from the army, he decided to become fully professional, and started building his own recording studio. He became a multi-instrumentalist, playing guitar, keyboards, drums, ... and accepted an offer as leadsinger/guitarplayer for The Wigs. For 4 years Indy toured the Benelux with this band, and recorded several full CD's with them (singing mostly country music).
In 1990 Indy got into contact with a dance producer, and got signed with Game records (owned by Carolina Guilini, daughter of Yvan Guilini). He became the leadsinger of the eurodance-act Timeshift, with whom he toured Eastern and western Europe, and did lots of TV performances. Their first single Don’t U feel the beat (Indy’s translation of “les divas du dancing” by P. Cataldo) reached #4 in the Belgian top 30, and #1 in the French dancecharts. Due to legal difficulties, Indy was forced to end the Timeshift adventure, and soon started working with his old band again.
2003 brought Indy back to his old style, and he started singing pure country again. Linedance audience spotted him and started booking him for their dance gigs. Before too long he decided to pursue what he had always wanted before: doing Jimmy's style of performing...
2009 : Indy met the love of his life, Hoa Lee, and they're currently working on music together.

Hungry For Love (1994)
Romy van Ooijen was born on the 18th of November 1968 in Amsterdam. After her HAVO diploma, she went to an Art Academy, she took lessons in a Conservatory and also theater lessons in Amsterdam University.
In 1991 she started working as a model for some TV commercials. She also took part to the coverband Voice 2 Voice. With Adam Curry, she also contributed to the program Gossip on Veronica radio.
Her first singles solo (released under Ray Slijngaard 's label) had not much success. She also contributed to the videoclip of the American rock group Chicago and appeared in Double Vision's videoclip for their single Allright.
She became between 1997 and 1999 one of 2 Unlimited new female vocalists (the blond one), joining Marjon van Iwaarden. She then left 2 Unlimited to pursue a solo carreer. Romy has already got several offers from (Dutch) recordcompanies to record solomaterial. The direction she will be heading in is pop/R&B and she is going to write her own songs, which she wasn't allowed in 2 Unlimited.
In the interview she gave, she stated that she had too little artistic freedom and she didn't like the way things were going. Romy expected more of it, like writing lyrics for 2 Unlimited, just like Ray & Anita did... And although she was promised that she could write songs in the near future, they have never kept their word and would probably never keep it. So she was put in a 'take it or leave it' situation... and she chose to leave. She said she should have known that a Belgian recordcompany works totally different than a Dutch recordcompany. What the difference is according to her? "The Belgians are supposedly more dominant. They tell you how they want it and that's the way it's going to be... You just have to do as they tell you. The Dutch are different... They just want to have a lot of fun and make good music. They listen to what other people have to say and they take your opinion into account."
She was said to be working on a solo album with Audio Chapel. She recorded a track called No Honey at Teejay Studio Amsterdam.
2004 : she was featured by DJ Cor Fijneman on his single Don't Break My Heart.
2005 : her voice was once again featured on Cor Fijneman's track I Need Someone on his album Monologue.
2009 : she is now known as Romy Snoeijers. She played in TV ads (for Whiskas, Honig, Heineken, Canon), and also works as a moderator in short promotional programs for TV. In October, she and Marion announced officially that they were joining again, and that they were working on a new single that could be followed by an album. In December, the name of the forthcoming single was revealed, it would be entitled I Said Yes.
2010 : the presentation of Two's single was initially planned to March, but it was postponed because Marjon had to undergo a surgery for a cancer. Then, Romy have birth to twins in Spain where she currently lives with her family.
2011 : Two's first single Wonder Why was finally released under label Carka Records CRM on a compilation entitled Music Flower

Peter Rost, born 19th April 1984, was described as a real streetboy. He was more often with his friends on the square than in the livingroom. And if he was at home, he was only busy with playing the newest video- and computer-games, although Peter's mother. Outside, he was always skating and by way of his friends, he came in touch with some streetdancers. "I found them really cool and I wanted to become just as good as they were, or even better. I trained with them every day and I also went to all sorts of workshops from famous dancers and choreographs". Because of his dancing-skills, Peter was attracting the attention of professionals from showbizz. In the past few years, he has regularly been performing as a background dancer for several national and international artists. When Peter had seen a little bit of the artist life, he knew it for sure: he also wanted a place in the spotlight. Next to his dancinglessons, he began to follow singing-lessons to develop into an allround artist.
In 2003, he became a member of bubblegum project Ch!pz. They split in 2009.
2012 : Peter competed in Holland's Got Talent with his illusionists and dancers group The Devils. They made it to the final and ended #4.

Roxxy's first hits were I’ll Never Stop and We Can Touch The Sky. She is also known for her energizing shows across Canada. But she is known mostly for her warm and sensuous voice, a captivating voice wrapped in a spell bound music which penetrates the entire body, a voice that we can’t do without from the first time we hear it. Roxxy has also signed licenses around the world, notably in Japan where she is having some success.
Roxxy is presently working on her first album due out shortly. This album may well surprise us because we know that Roxxy always puts out 110% of herself. As a preview, she released the heart-warming single Live My Life. With this song, Roxxy could also be seen in her very first videoclip.
Apart from her solo carreer, and after Aleah D'Kos, Roxxy lent her voice to the dance project Cinnamon Daze for the single Tu Veux Ou Tu Veux Pas. In 1997 she finally released a new uplifting track Love Set Us Free. Roxxy is still working on an album that was supposed to be out in Japan years ago. She also released the song So Long on a compilation during the year 1999.
Roxxy used to be a member of a project entitled Nostradamus, together with BitBurn from Capital Sound. They recorded tracks in French such as Coma, Le juge dans sa bulle and Mots de feu.
2006 : Roxxy and Donna (from Capital Sound) created the band Spand-X, with 3 other Canadian artists, Joe, Gilles and Don. They play the most famous hits of the 80s.

Initially, Roxy was created as a dancing group. Goran, the leader of the group, was a great fan of Italo-disco, Hi-NRG and Eurodance music and knew Denis Curman for a long time. When Curman decided to deal with the Croatian music scene in 1994, the logical step was to turn Roxy into dance-attraction and to make some great Eurodance music.
Curman produced and composed the album called Sve Sto Si Znao, Zaboravi (Forget Everything You Knew) released in 1996. It was a genuine hi-nrg / eurodance master-piece. Curman developed the original and recognizable music style which could not be compared to anything else. All tracks were a mixture of Hi-Energy, Eurodance and the elements of Techno-house. The most popular tracks were : Da Li Opet Lazes (Do You Lie Again), Sve Sto Si Znao (Everything You Knew), Crno Je (It's Black), A Sada Nema Te (And Now You're Gone) and Boli Me Uspomena (Memory Hurts Me).
The main female vocalist was named Sanja Majnaric (at this time, aged of only 17). Second rapper was Marin Klobučar. Goran and Sanja were the constant members of the group on their live appearances. The other members were often changed, as well as their number which depended on how large the stage was. Every live performance was a great experience for fans. Each track had an original dance choreography created by Goran himself. The most successful concert was held in September of 1996 in discotheque "The Best" in Zagreb.
In 1997 a video-clip was shot for a track Boli Me Uspomena (Memory Hurts Me), but it was shown only few times on HTV (which was already invaded by popular musical styles such as pop-folk, funk, or rock). In the whole, the album wasn't successful, just because the Croatian audience was stlll under great influence of Balkans and they were not ready to accept eurodance style. They also suffered from the competition of cheap pop-dance artists such as ET, Emilia, Kasandra, or Senna M. In spite of his international reputation, Denis Curman remained unknown to most of the Croatians.
The release of a CD maxi was planned the following year...
2013 : Goran is still composing great music nowadays. His most recent release is Your eyes featuring Cinthie Laouper. You can discover his latest creations on his Reverbnation page
Not to be confused with the Canadian artist Roxxy

Rozalla was born on 18 March 1964 in Ndola, a town in Zambia. When she was a teenager she moved to Zimbabwe with her family. As a young girl she used to skip school to play with a band. Later she sang at fashion shows and soon became a national celebrity. Rozalla enjoyed several chart hits in Zimbabwe, but she still had to work as a secretary to make ends meet. At the age of 18 she appeared as an extra (a prostitute) in Richard Chamberlain 's King Solomon's Mines.Wanting to become an international star Rozalla realized that she was never going to get anywhere if she stayed in Africa. Therefore she left Zimbabwe and moved to London in 1988, not knowing what awaited her there.
In England Rozalla was soon discovered by the Band Of Gypsies production team (the producers Nigel Swanston and Tim Cox) who noticed her deep, soulful voice and would catapult her to stardom a few years later. In 1990 their first single, the dance song Born To Luv Ya, was released on the small label Pulse 8 unfortunately without any success. Not discouraged the Band Of Gypsies wrote and produced some more songs for Rozalla and her second single Faith (In the Power of Love) was her first song to chart in the U.K.
But it is the single Everybody's Free (To Feel Good) which really made her career take off. It was not only a #1 dance hit in Canada and the U.S., but it was also #1 in Spain, #2 in Belgium, #3 in Italy, #4 in France, #5 in Germany and #6 in the UK. Followed the re-issued Faith which did much better the second time, and the very successful Are You Ready To Fly.
Rozalla's first album Everybody's Free was released in 1992. All the songs were produced by the Band Of Gypsies. The album entered the U.K. Top 20 in its first week. Rozalla signed a contract with Epic who released her album and singles in the U.S., wher Everybody’s Free reached the Top 40 of the Billboard Hot 100 almost a year after its European release. This came after something of a legal squabble, with Rozalla attempting to take the studio tapes to Epic. Pulse 8 objected and won their day in court. She also toured with Micheal Jackson and started working on the follow-up to her successful debut CD. A remix CD of her hit singles Everybody's Free-style was also released.
Look No Further was the name of her second album. Released in 1994, it was a multi-genre album which featured the production skills of DNA, Lamont Dozier, Andre Betts, John 'Jellybean' Benitez, Frankie Knuckles or Apollo 440. It contained great tracks such as You Never Love The Same Way Twice, Losing My Religion, I Love Music, and many more. Rozalla gave up her African look, she was launched as a crossover pop soul diva. I Love Music, the first single, was the soundtrack to the Sean Penn film 'Carlito's Way'. The US release contained a track not available on the UK release entitled Free The Love.The UK release contained a non-US album track named Love Work. Nevertheless Look No Further did not reach the success of the first album.
After a one-year silence Rozalla enjoyed success with a remixed version of ‘Everybody’s Free’ in 1996. Afterwards came Feelin' Good, an album that was released in the U.S only, a sort of best of.
Rozalla finally released a third album in 1998 Coming Home, only in the UK (because Popular – who were supposed to release it in the US – had some problems which prevented its release). Once again she worked with the Band Of Gypsies and co-wrote most of the songs. The first singles to be released were Coming Home, Don't Go Lose It Baby, and Don't Stop The Lovin'. Rozalla has also released a non-album track in collaboration with Phat N' Phunky Friday Night.
Rozalla has achieved massive international success and has been hailed as The Queen of Rave. In her native Zimbabwe she had already garnered an impressive five #1 singles, establishing her as their top female artist. Her distinctive vocal style and melodic Techno/Rave songs have helped to propel Rozalla into the realms of international stardom. In total, she has earned ten international top 10 singles. Meanwhile Rozalla also got married. She lives in London and is still a popular club attraction.
2000 : Rozalla was working on a new album for a new label (Mikeli Music). Richard (Humpty) Vission mixed a new version of Everybody's Free, released in July 2000. This is the follow-up of a long series of covers for this hit : among them, a single by Blümchen (Ich Bin Wieder Hier), and by Alice DeeJay (Everybody's Better Off)
2001 : on June 11 her new single Everybody's Turning Back was released on the Balloon/ZYX label. It's a collaboration with Gitta : the song is a mix of the her song No More Turning Back with the Everybody's Free vocal over it. Later this year Rozalla will also return with new material.
2002 : Rozalla teamed up with the German dance act Aquagen to reinterpret her biggest hit Everybody's Free. The single is already on Germany's Top 40 singles chart.
2003 : Rozalla released a single called Live Another Life with Plastic Boy. Released under the lable Inferno, it entered the UK singles chart at number 55 and peaked #11 on the dance singles chart. Plastic Boy (real name Dirk M.I.K.E. Dierickx) is a Belgian producer who also released singles under Push, such as Universal Nation, Strange World and The Legacy (both reached the top 20 of the UK pop charts). Live Another Life as instrumental version used to be released as promo in 2000. The new version was recorded with a sensational uplifting vocal by Rozalla.
2004 : Rozalla will release her first official Best Of Rozalla album on the 15th of March in the UK. Her cover version of Janet Jackson's Alright was released as promo 12" and as CD in July. She also re-released her rare third album Coming Home as a limited edition, available exclusively on her website.
2005 : Rozalla released a new remix of an old hit : You Never Love The Same Way Twice 2005 in Germany under ZYX. She performed on the UK 1ITV series Hit Me Baby One More Time, in which yesterdear's stars perform their biggest hits plus an interpretation of a more recent hit by another artist. Rozalla sung Everybody's Free and a jazzed up cover version of Blue's Fly By on 30 April. Other artists who took part to the show were Belinda Carlisle, Haddaway and Gloria Gaynor.
The new remixes of Rozalla's Everybody's Free (to feel good) were released in the UK on 18th April.
2006 : Rozalla recorded a cover version of ABBA's song Dancing Queen. This song was featured in the movie "Full Circle". In April Rozalla gave her first performance in Zambia since the 80s. She recorded a 2006 version of her classic hit single Faith (In the Power of Love) and she is also working on a new song.
Everybody's Free was once again remixed, this time in Italy. Unlike most remixes, this new version was authorized by Rozalla who re-recorded the song for the Italian record label Loud Bit. The track was released in August on promo (as Kortezman Feat. Rozalla) and did well in clubs.
Are You Ready To Fly was remixed by Northernbeat and this new version appeared on the compilation Gayfest 2006.
2007 : she recorded a cover of the song Diamonds Are Forever for the compilation Forever Bond.
2009 : Rozalla released an album entitled Brand New Version on February 2nd. She is currently supporting Billy Ocean on his 41 date UK 2009 Tour. Her hit Everybody's Free was covered by Andy Whitby & Matt Lee feat. Adam Tensta.
2010 : Rozalla was featured by Abel Ramos on a track called Where Is The Love (under With Love Music Records), released on 30th November

Dolce Vita (Ben Liebrand remix) (1989)
Born into a family of artists (his father was a successful painter and sculptor, his grandfather was a lyrical singer), Ryan already had the music in his veins when he was still a child. Especially inspired and encouraged by his grandfather, who taught him everything about classical operas, he decided to study music after having finished college. In the early 80's, he made his first movie experiences as well, when acting in little rolls in famous films such as Once Upon a Time in America by Sergio Leone with Robert de Niro and La Bella Otero with Angela Molina.
But feeling more attached to music he gathered same friends tagether to form a band, a New Wave Group, which even qualified for the Italian rock festival at the time, but which then split up when same members had to join the army. Finally in 1983, Ryan had his break-through, when working with his first producer, Pierluigi Giombini, and achieved worldwide success : his single Dolce Vita sold more than 5 million records worldwide and went straight up to No.1 in all charts.
For Dolce Vita, Ryan received 12 gold, 2 silver and 2 platinum records. The BBC London produced a video clip of Dolce Vita in Paris. This huge success made Ryan Paris a most sought after artist and he was invited ta perform in all major European lV-Shows such as Top Of The Pops (United Kingdom), Champs Elysees (France), Popcorn (Italy) and Formel Eins (Germany). Following the success of his first single, Ryan released Fall In Love in 1984, which sold 180.000 units - in France on I y - and reached No.7 in Spain. Shortly after this, he released the album Ryan Paris featuring the single Paris On My Mind which again - was a major hit in Italy and France.
When touring through the USA, in 1986, Ryan Paris took part to the Pop Festival in Portland, and played in jam session together with legendary Al Jarreau and Stanley Clarke. While living in Amsterdam, in 1989, Ryan co-produced a remix of 'Dolce Vita', together with Ben Liebrand, the farnaus DJ and producer (Holiday Rap, In The Air Tonight). Dolce Vita Uptown Sk'ouse Mix went Top 10 in the Netherlands. The English magazine Face honoured hirn with best reviews and a substantial article. In the following years, he released several other tracks such as OnIy 4 U which became #1 in the Italian Radio Charts, And The Beat Goes (featuring Brenda Dee) in 1991 and It's My Life (featuring the voice of Franca Morgano) in 1996 which became big as weIl, especially in Eastern Europe. He worked with producers like Frank Peterson (coproducer of Enigma) and Christoph Seipel (No Mercy, La Bouche, Boney M) and even composed and co-produced songs for Coca-Cola commercials.
Having been one of the major stars in the 80’s, Ryan’s activities and ambitions are far from having come to an end. Besides working on remixes of his biggest hits and producing new songs for himself and other artists, he keeps performing in TV-Shows and on stage all over Europe.
