(Judith Hinkelmann aka Hildebrandt, 19)
T stands for her big love Techno music, and 7 for '70 styles (sometimes she is just called T). She worked as female vocalist for Mr President till the year 2000.
T-7 grew up with dance. Her mother was a ballerina, T really admired her and always wanted to follow her steps. At the tender age of 5, she was admitted to a very tough ballet school. At the very beginning of her career in Satellite One, her father was not approving it, but when in 1992 this group was climbing up with SAT-1 Serie The Adventures of Young Indiana Jones, he became a fan of the group and her daughter. She likes to wear clothes from that period. She gained high school diploma but at this moment she does not plan to get higher education.
In 2000 T-Seven left Mr President. She started a solo carreer, and in March 2001 released her first single called Hey Mr. President, written and produced by Thomas Anders (of Modern Talking). In August followed the secong single Passion (which had already been covered a few years later by Cardenia). According to rumors, it was not her real voice on the tracks, but the one of Karen Mueller, the studio vocalist who already sung her vocals while she was a member of Mr President. She also recorded a duet with Marvin McCay.
2003 : T-seven released a new single entitled Copa Cabana.
2004 : she turned to elektro-punk and recorded with her new band (Benny and the two Martin) new songs that she co-wrote with a team from London and co-produced in Bremen. She also took part as model to some fashion shows along with Jazzy from the group Tic Tac Toe or with Mirja Dumont.
Her favourite hobby is riding her horse Luna.
2006 : T seven was featured by the dance project Lunanova on the cover-song Let The Music Play (already covered by Strictly MOR some years ago). She also works as a DJ on radio NRJ Bremen.
No relationhip with Judith Hildebrandt, the vocalist of Hugo.

No Time 2 Waste (1993)
It all started out in 1993 with their first single No Time 2 Waste, which wasted no time in cracking the top 10 in Europe (single Spank, released in 1991 under the same project name, is probably from a different project).
During the following years they scored a string of hits, which brought them success in countries like the UK, Australia, Canada, Israel, Ireland, Scandinavia, South-America and of course their homecountry, Holland. Songs like A Part Of My Life, Where R U Now, Take Me 2 The Limit and of course Sex On The Beach kept people moving all over the world. Releasing 4 full album CDs, incl. a remix CD and a hitsingle collection, they proved to be one of the most versatile dance acts to have ever existed. They produced some powerful eurodance tracks, but also groovy R&B songs, upbeat happy hardcore tunes and even euroreggae and eurodisco tracks.
Behind T-Spoon stands Prince Peration (Dutch Remy de Groot), the founder and one of the driving forces behind T-Spoon. The co-producers were Dominic Sas and Serge Ramaekers (famous for their projects Confetti's and Cartouche). On stage T-Spoon consisted of 4 people : a female vocalist (Ingrid Simons, Jean Shy, Blonde, then Linda Estelle) and a male rapper (Shamrock, replaced in 1998 by Greg Dillard, then in 2001 by King Lover), and the two dancers Regilio and Anatevka
Legend says that Shamrock said while stirring a cup of tea "I'd rather have a gold record than a gold tea spoon any day". "That's it" exclaimed Prince Peration, "That's the name", and so the name T-Spoon was born. More recently, Remy de Groot, explained that the name actually came from a western TV show in which the sheriff was called Teaspoon.
1993 : the first ever T-Spoon single No Time 2 Waste featured the vocals of one of Holland's most sought after session singers : Ingrid Simons aka BB Queen (named after Blues-legend B.B.King). Ingrid was described as a powerful singer with a magnetic stage presence. Her voice may be found not only in the clubs on CD and radio, but also behind many of the Disney films. BB Queen had 2 hits in central Europe. Blueshouse and Soul Train in the early 90s .This was T-Spoon's first top 10 hit.
1994 : T-Spoon's 2nd was released : Take Me 2 The Limit was once again a top 10 hit. Then Ingrid Simons left the group to do vocals on Eton Crop's singles Don't You Understand and Everybody.
The album Joy, Life And Pain was released in October, along with the third single Where R U Now.
Where R U Now featured the vocals of Jean Shy, an American singer raised on gospel, blues and rock. She has had many single releases including the US top 10 hit Night Dancer. This track went top 10 in the Netherlands in no time! Because she was touring Europe with her band the Shy Guys she became the perfect candidate for T-Spoon.
1995 : Jean Shy also contributed to the follow-up Mercedes Benz (a cover of Janis Joplin song originally recorded in 1970), which also reached a top 10 spot. The single also included the superb backing vocal of Blonde.
Blonde (aka Mich van Hautem) was the name of this stunning singer with the long 'blonde' hair. She had previously performed with artists such as Blue Hot, Little Sister and Klootper W. Blonde also did backing vocals on B.B. Jerome & The Bang Gang - You Can Rock It (to which Dominic Sas contributed as a songwriter) She had also been the voice behind a couple of movie sound tracks such as Crazy Love and For Love And Money. Apart from her performance on Mercedes Benz, she 'opened up' completely in the sensual track Open Up 2 U.
The follow-up single was See The Light. Apart from Shamrock and Linda Estelle, it featured the guest raps of Johnny Kelvin (who released 3 solo singles, among them the eurodance song Satisfaction Guaranteed, and also did backing vocals for CB Milton's If You Leave Me Now along with Ingrid Simons).
Joy, Life & Pain also included the track Fly Away, (which would be re-recorded and released as a single much later). It featured vocals by Sofie Dijkmans, a young Belgian girl for whom it was a debut performance. Sofie also had her own pop-rock band.
In 1997 they released one of the biggest summer hits of the '90's with their euro-reggae anthem Sex On The Beach. In the year of release it went top3 in the Netherlands and top 10 in Belgium... but the big internationalsuccess came in 1998, when Sex On The Beach was released in Ireland and the UK. It entered the UK Top 40 at number 2 and stayed in the top10 for more than a month, which is something uncommon in the British charts. Humphrey Mijland a.k.a. King Lover was a guest vocalist on Sex On The Beach and he could also be heard on the follow-up Message Of Love. Before teaming up with T-Spoon, he worked with the 2 Brothers on projects like Skibby and Definition Of Joy.
1999 saw the continuing success of Sex On The Beach, when it went to the #1 position in Japan and the Fiji Islands and entered the top 10 in Australia and New Zealand ! Due to censorship, it had to be renamed as Fun On The Beach in some countries. 1999 also saw the UK release of Tom's Party, which also entered the UK Top 40. They became the second Dutch dance act ever (after 2 Unlimited) to score two Top 40 hits in a row.
Spring 1999 saw the first pre-release of the forthcoming album T-Spoon in the form of the smashing Got 2 Get U Back. The new album was completely produced by Remy de Groot and Axel Breitung. In June the second pre-release was taken of the album : Summer Love .This track reached a top 15 placement in Holland.
A huge megadeal with Sony Music/550 Music in the US and Sony Music/Epic Records in Canada saw the release of Sex On The Beach throughout North-America in August. The album, which comes in the US and in the Dutch version, was released at the end of August in the US and in September in Holland. The big difference between the two versions was the absence of Sex On The Beach and Tom's Party on the Dutch version because Sex On The Beach was already featured on the Hit Collection album. Both these tracks were new to countries other than the Netherlands, so they were added on the other version. The Dutch version did however contain three tracks which were not on the US version: Go!, If I Could Turn Back Time and the dancefloor stormer Heaven In My Hand.
October 1999 also saw the release of the new Dutch single I Want To Be Your Man. At the same time Delicious was released in Belgium.
In 2000 Greg left the band. During the Summer, the T-Spoon crew had a lawsuit against him and kicked him out of the group : he was accused of not keeping his appointments. Greg got to court and won the case but the Judge said that he couldn't force the crew to take him back. Ingrid Simons took part to the Phonical Mass! single called Carry On.
Summer 2001 : The new single from T-Spoon was called Sexy Lady. It featured the rapper King Lover who also did previously the ragga raps on Sex On The Beach and Message Of Love. It included a B-side entiled Rivers Of Babylon.
2002 : a promo single entitled Alive & Kicking was released under white label. At the end of this year a major promotion campaign started from one of Holland's biggest internet providers, Zon. They used T-Spoon's first song No Time 2 Waste as the backingtrack, and people started requesting the track again.
Summer 2003 : Linda left the project. No Time 2 Waste 2003 was released in collaboration with the project Supreme Dream Team.
2004 : in June, the single Sex On The Beach 2004 was released. Shamrock was back with the group, and they introduced a new member : Marlène Berger. Drinks called Sex On The Beach was released at the same time : energy drinks in 2 flavors : citrus and original, and 2 vodkas.
In July, they performed on the TV show "Het Swing Paleis" in Belgium and at Six Flags in Holland. In August, they did a performance in Berlikum in the Netherlands, introducing their new dancers Leandro and N-joy. Then, they went to Poland to record a TV show.
2005 : according to rumors, Remy de Groot and Serge Ramaekers were said to be working on a new single.
2007 : Jean Shy released a single called Mr. Music Maker from her current CD album The Other Side of Blue.
2008 : Shamrock and Linda Estelle toured with their "T-Spoon Reloaded show". in March, they performed at Ekonomika Rewind Leuven (Belgium). in December, it was announced that Linda Estelle and Shamrock were back in studio, and that they would record some new songs together to be released the following year
2009 : in February, they announced that they were busy recording and remixing some of their old hits, and that they had started writing new songs and were are looking for collaborations throughout the world.
In June, they appeared at Q Music's Foute Party in Den Bosch. Then they took part to a commercial for Johma salads' 40th anniversary, Shamrock doing a sing/rap style in Dutch.
2010 : there are nowadays 3 different T-Spoon formations for tours, all of them official : Blondi & Raw Jawz, Linda & Shamrock and T Spoon Dj Squad. Remy de Groot explained that "we have the past, present & future, the past is T-spoon Reloaded with Shamrock & Linda, the present is the fresh young T-Spoon with Raw Jawz & Blondi, and The future is T-Spoon Dj Squad, for every generation there is something to enjoy about T-Spoon".
2012 : T-spoon released a collaboration with Dirty House Bastards featuring Akon entitled Dubhop Shawty.
2013 : T-Spoon's new single is entitled Ticket To The Tropics. It is a cover of a song released in 1985 by Dutch artist Gerard Joling.

The T-zone project was built around a vocalist presented by SAIFAM Publishing Group as having started out at drama school in London and, as the sister of one of her friend in her class had a group, she asked her to sing with them and they worked together for a couple of years. After a phase of mediocre success, she decided to move on and started to think about what she wanted to do : she discovered dance music and decided that was what she wanted to start his career in. She had been singing for many years when she did her debuts on the label One Way Records together with male vocalist Jerry on the single Check Out.
All the singles were released under One-Way records (a label of SAIFAM Publishing). All singles (among them, a lot of covers) were recorded and mixed in Verona (Italy), released as vinyls only.
Their very first single was Check Out. It was released in 1993, F. Turatti
and Natale were the executive producers. It was produced and arranged by Morris
Capaldi (who also wrote the lyrics and mixed the tracks), A. Milan and DJ F.
Marchi. It included a B-side entitled O.L.D. The single was mixed at
20.0.90 Studio in Milano (Italy).
2 years passed by before we saw another release from T-Zone. At S.A.I.F.A.M. Publishing group, Mauro Farina decided to let her sing a song produced by Cappella's team Max Persona, Roby Arduini, Antonio Puntillo : Movin Up And Down. It was released in 1995. This original track (for once) was composed and written by M. Motta, Roby Arduini, M. Aventino and Antonio Puntillo. It was produced by Roby Arduini for Union srl, realized by Roby Arduini and DJ Mamix, mixed by Roby Arduini at Union Studios in Verona (Italy).
The same year was released Do You Know Where You're Going To. Originally written by Mike Masser and Gerry Goffin, and performed by Diana Ross, it was produced by M. Farina and F. Turatti, recorded and mixed at Mela Studios).
The follow-up was the wonderful euro track Don't Let Me in 1996. The vocalist on was the one known under the code name Jenny. The single was written and composed by M. Farina, F. Serra, F. Turatti and A. Bindella. It was produced by M. Farina, G.Crivellente and A.Bindi. Additional production was done by F. Turatti and Factory Team. It was recorded and mixed at Mela Studios and Factory Sound Studios.
Then came Body Rock a few monthes later. Originally written and sung by Maria Vidal, it was produced by F. Turatti and G. Crivellente, mixed at Mela Studios.
In 1997, T-zone recorded Reach Out. It was produced by M. Farina, R. Arduini and A. Puntillo. Originally written by L. Dozier (it was a cover of a song of The Four Tops sung for the first time in 1966), it was performed and mixed by R. Arduini and A. Puntillo at Union Studios.
After a 2 years pause, the cover of I Will Survive was released in 1999. Originally written by Dino Fekaris and Perren and initially sung by Gloria Gaynor, it was produced by M. Farina and F. Turatti, mixed at Universal Studios. It included an instrumental B-side entitled Survivors.
Then came Nutbush City Limits, a cover of a Tina Turner song. It included a the instrumental B-side called No Limits, which was actually the clone of Survivors. Produced by M. Farina and Factory Team, it was mixed at Factory Sound Studios, mastered by Compotech-CA (USA).
Turn The Beat Around (a Gloria Estefan cover) was the follow-up. The vinyl included 2 versions of the singles (a Factory Batuca mix, a little latino oriented, and a Factory Speed mix, more trancy), plus the 70' mix of Don't Let Me and the track No Limits (already featured in the previous single). It was produced by M. Farina and Factory Team, mixed at Factory Sound Studios.
T-Zone's last single was Radio Ga Ga, a cover of Queen's hit, which had already been covered by DJ Bobo. It included, once again, the instrumental Survivors ! It was produced by M. Farina and & F. Turatti, mastered by Compotech.
There are a few tracks recorded by T-zone which were only compilation tracks : among them, Twist Of Fate, Young Hearts Run Free, This Time I Know It's For Real and Higher And Higher.

Emanuella Gubinelli aka Taleesa was born on the 19th November 1971 in Santa Monica, California (or Matelica, Italy according to some toher sources). Her parents had Italian origins and she received a very strict education. She studied in a religious college and learned how to sing, play piano and violin. She started singing in a local band at the tender age of 9. Then, as she was still an adolescent, she escaped from home to follow her rock band for a tour in Europe.
After this tour, the young Taleesa signed a contract with WEA, but it proved not to be exactly what she wanted. So after 2 years she broke the contract and moved to Milan, Italy, to give a new direction to her carrer. She started working in studio as composer and arranger.
She started gaining credibility as author when the 2 songs (Say Yeah and Keep On Jammin) she had written for Stefano Secchi became hits. This allowed her to restart her singer carreer and to record songs such as One Love the Lifetime, Living 2 Love and Baby Don't Stop that had some success in France and a few other European countries. She also released a single under her real name Emmanuella, entitled Satisfied, in collaboration with B. Sanchioni.
It is less known that she also contributed to many eurobeat projects which had success mainly mainly in Japan : Linda Ross, Morena, Jilly, Ann Sinclaire, Vanessa, Gisele, Paula Marsh, Serena, Maggie Sue, and many more...
But success came as she was a vocalist featured by the duo Cozzi and Rossi (Co.Ro) on the version they had made to Because The Night (a cover of Patty Smith and Bruce Springsteen). Her impressive voice appeared also on There's Something Going On/I Break Down And Cry, and on the following album that Co.Ro released in 1993. After her singles with Co.Ro became a hit in America, Emanuella decided to go solo again.
The same year she recorded with Stefano Secchi 2 singles We Are Easy to Love and A Brighter Day. She probably did vocals on the following singles :
Amanda Baker - Knock On Wood (1999)
Den Harrow - Ocean (1991)
Kim Martin - Welcome To My Heaven (1991)
Maxxine - The Wings Of Love (1992)
Olimpia - Come On Come On (1992) (with Maria Capri)
Then, under the pseudonym of Aladino she released 3 eurodance singles : Make It Right Now, Brothers In Space and Call My Name, all of them being very successful in Europe. In 1993 she also collaborated with G. Spagna on Dave Hammond's single All My World.
One of her first singles under her name was I Found Luv, written by G. Amir Saraf and Uli Brenner, produced by Giacomo Maiolini featuring raps of Michael Romeo. After that, she returned to Italy and released many other songs, like Burning Up (that she co-wrote and co-composed with Trivellato and Sachetto), Falling In Love (produced by Visnadi under Flying Records, re-released by ZYX), Let Me Be (that she co-wrote and co-composed with W. Cremonini, A. Gilardi, produced by Giacomo Maiolini and released under Time Records) and a country dance called Jambalaya, cover of an old rock song.The following release was called I Wanna Give. It was not really dance music, so it was not very succesful, even if the song was good. She started touring all over the world, she enven presented some TV shows in Brazil where she also gave live gigs in discos.
In 1996, Taleesa started a new collaboration with G. Spagna : her name appears on Paul Rogers' Wanna Be My Lover and Morena's Music Take My Breathe Away.
Internet Love : differently from her last 2 releases, this song is very energetic, every Internet user will like the lyrics. Once again it was a collaboration with the duo Saraf-Brenner.
With You And Me Taleesa really moved to a more housy trend. The music, the style and the way she sings sounds like Gala, and even being a good dance song, it is very different from what we're used to.
With Kisses, Kisses, Bye-Bye Taleesa gave us a nice, fast Italo song which, for some, reminded Simone Jay's Wanna Be Like A Man. It had some success locally in Italy. Then she came back to her native California.
Her last single to be released under the name of Taleesa was called Beach Boy, a kind of pop song.
Nowadays she lives in Milan. She also owns a house in California. She loves to travel. She says she believes in God. She likes Madonna for whom she has a lot of admiration.
1998 : she co-wrote Simone Jay's single Luv Thang. Rumors say that she could have released an album entitled Singles Collection but it can't be found anywhere.
1999 : she released a single under the name of Axia entitled Love In December and another one under the name of Moonlight entitled Love Control (produced by Turatti/Melloni). She also recorded in her own studio a complete album called Whatever Happened Lately?, aka Que Pasa Ultimamente?. It contained 12 songs in Spanish and English with a combination of ballads and rock. Taleesa, accompanied by a music group and dancers, toured for over a year many countries in South America. She described the tour like the best experience of her life.
2001 : she appeared on 2 singles released by De La Cruz : My Love Is A DJ and Listen To My Heart.
2002 : she kept on collaborating with De La Cruz for their new single, the very nice There's No Right.
2003 : Taleesa released a new single under her name, the song was entiled Over You, and the music was Kylie Minogue style. The single was published by Vale Music Spain, written by Michael Corkran (her boyfriend), Emanuela Gubinelli herself, and V. Gaffurini. It was produced in her own studios Luv-en-colors.
Later the same yer, she recorded with Aron Michael a single for DJ Stefy entitled The Promise You Made. She already started working on a new single...
In October, she recorded a new single for De La Cruz In My Mind. The new single was released under Elite Records, the new label that DJ Richard & Johnny Bass (the brothers who stand behind De La Cruz) created after leaving Vale Music.
2005 : Taleesa recorded a new song for De La Cruz called Where U Belong. It entered the American chart at #35.
2007 : Taleesa recorded a melodical pop song entiled Children Alone, written by her husband Michael Corkran and Roberto Baeli. All the rights of the song will be destinated to Action Aid... Nowdays she is mainly working as a producer for other artists with big level in Italy. She is also doing remixes in studios in New York City and in her own studios based in Los Angeles..
2009 : Taleesa was featured by the DJs duo Muthagroove on a cover of the classic My Body And Soul. In November, during her appearance on the stage of Italo party 2009, Taleesa announced that a new single was on its way.
2011 : Taleesa is working hard on her company Luv en Colors, now mostly dedicated to the film market, telefilm production and media management.

Tatjana Simic is a Dutch singer, actress and model, born on June 9th, 1963 in Zagreb, Croatia where she studied at high school. In 1979 she moved to Rotterdam in the Netherlands with her sister and mother, to start a new life. She worked as a tour guide in the Dutch city, before landing herself a job in the local town hall's sports and recreation department.
After winning a competition organised by a Dutch magazine, she started her modelling career in 1985. She also appeared in TV commercials. This is how she was spotted by the producer of the movie Flodder, the story of a rather a-social family, getting a chance to live in an upper-class neighbourhood. Tatjana played the role of Kres Flodder, the naughty daughter of the Flodder family. Flodder became Holland's most successful movie ever, seen by more than 2,5 million people in that country.
In 1987, after taking lessons for several years, she released her very first single Baby Love. The follow-up Chica Cubana (a cover of a sog by Laurie) was top 10 in Europe, leading her to the status of a sort of Dutch Sabrina. It was followed by Awaka Boy, produced again by the famous Italian producers Giuliano Crivellente and Mauro Farina.
1990 : Tatjana played the roles of Suzy in the Dutch film "My Blue Heaven".
1992 : she recoded a duet with Gerard Joling entitled Can't Take My Eyes Off You which was very successful. She appeared in the movie Flodder 2 (aka Flodder in Amerika), which again broke all box-office records. She aso played in the Flodder TV series. And in 1995, she was back in Flodder 3.
Tatjana's popularity has also spread further afield including South Africa and the Far East where she has toured. In 1993 she visited Miami for live appearances and to make a video for Feel Good and last year she modelled for the first 'Tatjana Calendar' which now adorns the walls of thousands of European homes and offices
The came the eurodance singles Never Never in 1993, Calendar Girl in 1996 (#73 in the Netherlands), and of course the famous Santa Maria (#37 in the Netherlands).
1997 : Tatjana released hr single The First Time. John Frijters and Peter de Jong wrote her biography. Her new album New Look was released, and presented at the Planet Hollywood restaurant of Amsterdam.
1999 : The single Crazy Way About You was released, followed by Wait And Wonder.
2000 : Tatjana released Baila Baila. A special edition was released, including 3 videoclips, a calendar screensaver, a video-puzzle, a making of, as well as some photos. Then she got signed by the label Red Bullet, and came Be There In Time, and Beautiful.
2005 : she wrote a book entitled Jij.
2008 : Tatjana is back with a single in Dutch entitled Ik Laat Je Gaan and it went #11 in the Dutch charts. A brand new album should follow.

This project features 4 girls who were spotted in 1999 during the casting of a TV broadcast called Asayan (Japanaese equivalent of the Popstars reality show). Their producer Tsunku, was not very well-known at this time, but he since became one of the most well-paid in the Japanese musical business. He now stands behind many dozens of very succesful pop projects.
Tsunku was also the creator of the bands' name : the girls were trained in San Francisco, and he combined this with the word "moon". "Taiyou" means the sun in Japanese, and "to" meant "and".
The original members of Taiyou To Ciscomoon (太陽とシスコムーン) were Honda Ruru (born 18/03/1976), a Chinese singer already very popular in her homeland, Kominato Miwa (born 15/02/1977), a folk singer already mother of 2 little boys, Shinoda Miho (born 18/05/1972), olympic champion in gymanstics in Seoul 1988, and Inaba Atsuko (born 13/03/1974), former member of a famous models group of Osaka, the OPD (Osaka Performance Doll).
Tsunku had decided that, if the group's debut single Tsuki To Taiyō (月と太陽, meaning The moon and the sun, out in April 1999) did not reach at least #6 in the charts, he would give up. Fortunately for the girls, their first single peaked #4 of sales (according to Oricon, offical sales chart in Japan). They were able to keep up their carreer, but they never reached the success of some other groups produced by Tsunku.
Next single was entitled Gatamekira (ガタメキラ). Then, only one month after, came Uchū de LaTaTa (宇宙でLaTaTa). 4th single Everyday Everywhere, released in August, was remixed to become a nice eurodance track. Follow-up was Magic Of Love.
In December 1999, they released the single Marui Taiyou - Winter Version (丸い太陽) : at this time they were only 3 girls in the group. Then in March 2000, they changed their name and became T&C Bomber : with once again 4 girls in the group.
During Summer 2000 the girls took part to some other projects produced by Tsunku (all of them being gathered under the Hello! Project banner) : the Shuffle Units 2000. Shinoda Miho took contributed to Aka-gumi 4, with the single Akai Nikkichou, Inaba Atsuko anf Kominato Miwa were featured by Aoiro 7, with the single Aoi sport-car No Otoko, Honda Ruru became a member of Kiiro 5 with the single Kiiroi Osora de Boom Boom Boom. In October 2000, the group officially split up.

Trevor Oliver Taylor (aka "Supa T") was born in Montego Bay, Jamaica on January 11th 1958. He was one of the early members of the Bad Boys Blue project. He left the formation in 1987, one of the reasons being that he did not accepted the fact that John McInerney's voice was chosen instead of his on Come Back And Stay.
He continued his career in other groups : Street Noise, Ozazuvas, Supa T. and Umoya.
He died January 19th, 2008 from a heart attack.

This Beat Is Technotronic (1990)
Move It To The Rhythm (1994)
The beat and the look that conquered virtually every hit-list throughout the world, and shook the international dance community to its foundations. Technotronic was the restless offspring of innovative Belgian producer Jo Bogaert. He expertly devised the now all too familiar sound of Technotronic in his small attic studio about 20 miles North West of Brussels.
In 1983-84, Jo was the keyboardplayer for the band WhiteLight (intimistic, sober Velvet-Underground-ish songs). After the demise of this, he turned into a solo-"do-it-yourselfer" in his attic in Aalst. At the time of the eruption of New Beat, he operated under a number of pseudonyms (Nux Nemo, Acts of Madmen ...).
Pump Up The Jam took radios and night-clubs by storms and in no time Technotronic topped the worlds charts.
The first public face of Technotronic was a blue lipped renowned fashion-model known as Felly Kilingi. It wasn't until the second hit single Get up that the public discovered Manuela Kamosi, or Ya Kid K, for the first time. She had already performed the original vocal on Pump Up The Jam and now finally the world could bear witness to her struttning amblent deliverance of Get Up. After the monumental success of Pump up the Jam the path was now clear and Get up achieved all expectation. Technotronic's debute had netted over 3,5 million in world sales, the follow up grossed another 1,9 million definite proof that Technotronic were not 'one of wonders'. Their sound was and still is a force to be reckoned with. The stage was not firmly set for their first album release Pump up the Jam. Pretty soon the album had notched up over 4 million world sales. By the end of 1990 Pump Up The Jam had reached pole position in the Billboard 12 singles dance chart.
The follow-up singles Get Up (Before The Night Is Over) and This Beat Is Technotronic (feat. MC Eric) were also very succesful.
Turn It Up featured Melissa Beckford and Einstein (who would later appear on Eurogroove's album)
The last significant chart success was in 1992 when Move That Body (featuring Reggie) peaked at No.5 in the U.S. Billboard charts.Up until now Technotronic have retailed more than 13 million albums.
The same year, they released another title featuring Reggie : Money Makes The World Go Round
1994 : Technotronic was back in eurodance style. Producers Jo Bogaert (Thomas De Quincey) and Patrick De Meyer teamed up with producers Phil Wilde and Peter Bauwens, world famous for their huge success with CB Milton and 2 Unlimited. The result of this combination was Move It To The Rhythm (featuring Ya Kid K, Daisy Dee and Black Diamond ) followed by Recall and a new album with the same name. Then everything became very quiet around the project...
1997 : Technotronic released a remix single called Get Up'97, followed by many other re-releases.
1998 : DONS released Pump Up The Jam under the name of DONS feat.Technotronic. The radio edit (track N1) on this single was made by The Loop! (no other than Scooter).
2000 : Technotronic were back with some new material : after Like This featuring Monday Midnite, they released The G-train with the same artist. Then followed The Mariachi in June, with an appearance of Ya Kid K.
2001 : Technotronic released a new single in May called Runaway Blues.
2002 : Technotronic recorded a single entitled The Circle Unbroken.
2005 : DONS released a re-remix of their version of Pump Up The Jam. It entered many charts across Europe.
2007 : Global Deejays feat. Technotronic "Get Up" peaked #4 on the danish dancechart.
2009 : Technotronic announced that they working on a new album. It would be featuring Ya Kid K. and Eric "MC Eric" Martin. But nothing finally came out. They had started a successful World Tour to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Technotronic, performing full-length concerts featuring some new remixes of the well-known hit singles and introduce some new tunes
2012 : Technotronic released a new best Of album, as well as a new version of their 1999 single Like This with Paul Almeida
2014 : Bodybangers released a cover of Technotronic's hit Pump Up The Jam

Tellus is basically the Swedish producer Pierre J's one-man show, but if you take a close look at the credits you'll find that he often collaborates with various producers, songwriters and vocalists.
Tellus was launched in 1994 as a result of a chat between Peter Hartzell (Tempo Records) & Pierre J. The idea was to create an act performing commercial house music, with recognisable elements & samples from other songs. The intention was not to rip-off other artists, just simply presenting cool and memorable hooks with cool grooves. Pierre J has gradually developed this into a unique and swinging musical style... the Tellus style.
In '95 Tellus' debut-single Pump Up The Volume peaked at #4 on the Swedish Dance Chart and the act's popularity has steadily grown ever since. With eight Tellus-singles under his belt, and with 5 of them reaching top 10 on the Swedish Dance Chart, Pierre J / Tellus is now ready to take on the world with the debut album The Man With The Background (Tempo Records).
Tellus' singles have so far been released in Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Belgium, Netherlands, Luxemburg, Italy, France, Brazil, Southeast Asia, Poland & Canada. More territories will follow shortly. Tellus is also available on video and at least 30 various compilations around the world.

In addition to singing, she studied Linguistics and Psychology at York University in Toronto. She primarily enjoys listening to vocal jazz, rhythm and blues, and reggae.
Nick Fiorucci, likewise born in Toronto, began his career as a D.J. in the mid-80s and started his own record label in 1990. By the late '90s, he had become one of the most sought after mixers, producers and composers in the dance genre, collaborating with a wide range of musical artists.
Curtnail Anthony "Mystah" Munroe migrated to Canada with his family as he was 11. His talents as a dancer were nurtured in high school where he performed for numerous productions and competitions, eventually leading to work in music videos. His skill at writing and rapping put him in high demand as a contributing rapper and lyricist for other artists in and around Toronto. Signed to Attic Records' Hi Bias label, Temperance's sophomore release, If You Don't Know, appeared in early 1999
After a few EPs, Temperance released their first album Virtues Of Life in 1995 produced by Mark Ryan. They released several singles, among them the famous Foverer Young, a cover of Alphaville. They performed extensively not only throughout Canada, but across Europe, North America, Asia and parts of Africa, garnering multiple Juno nominations and Canadian video awards along the way for their innovative and entertaining dance music. Six of their singles were top 10 on the Canadian National Dance Chart
The second album came in 1999 under the label The Orchard. It was produced by Nick Fiorucci himself.
Lorraine went solo and got signed by the label Up From The Roots. She now sings soul and RnB.

Rapper of Solid Base.
Thomas was born in Sweden in 1971, raised in Africa and has also lived in Indonesia and Saudi Arabia. He studied life above all. Back in Stockholm he plunged deep into the music of the city. He worked in a restaurant as a chef for a while. He has also been a rapper for about ten years. He finally met the producers Jonas Eriksson and Mattias Eliasson, and they became friends. He started working as a radio DJ while the Solid Base project was being created. One day, Jonas and Matthias called him to listen to the rappers auditioned for the group. They asked his, just for fun, if he could do some rapping and he agreed. The result satisfied them so much, that they asked Thomas if he wanted to be part of the group.
Thomas says that life doesn't get to be much better than this, because he loves being on stage and working with Jonas Eriksson and Mattias Eliasson, and the rest of the team around Solid Base. Thomas describes his work with her partner Isabelle : 'Fantastic. We have a great time together and we laugh a lot. Sometimes it's hard but you just have to deal with it'.
Thomas loves hip hop (Dr. Dre, Eminem, Public Enemy, the old N.W.A. stuff, Bone Thugs N' Harmony) but also a lot of other music (such as the Backstreet Boys for their professional talent)

The Second You Sleep (16th Jun 2004)
Tess Mattisson was born on the 13th of February 1978 in Stockholm. She grew up in Solna, in the North of Stockholm where she lived with her mother until she was 15 years old. Her exotic looks reveals her origin from India/Finland on her father's side and Belgium/Sweden on her mother's. She studied French language during 3 years. At the age of 15, Tess gave up her studies and got the opportunity to start dancing at different night-clubs all around Sweden. She also worked during daytime at the Sheraton Hotel. She took the chance since music and dance are her big passions. Tess taste of music is very broad and she gets off on anything from classical music to heavy house-techno. She hasn't set any goals in music business, but wants to live one day at a time.
To her merits one can count danceacts with Dr Alban, Rob'n Raz and Drömhus (Dreamhouse). She has also sung backup vocals and danced with Basic Element. Then in 1998 she became La Cream's voice. Their first single Château d´amour was released at Dr. Records / Arcade Music. The single became a hit and they decided to go on. The second single, You, was La Cream's first commercial hit and it sold Gold in both Sweden and Norway
'If you don't like the music you're doin, you can't do it with your heart. Then you can't perform it with the right feeling. When being out I although like a bit harder music and not euro that much. La Cream is dance music and I love dance.' Tess likes the current artists : 'I like Madonna. She's a great artist, who's done music for years. I like new Swedish artists like Markoolio, he's the funniest artist in the world. Antiloop is good. I listen to all kinds of music.'
In 2000, after about 160 shows with La Cream, Tess left the project. "It was a fantastic time", says Tess, who during these two years got the opportunity to go to a lot of interesting places and to meet a lot of exciting people. She released her first solo single, Justify My Love, which sounded just like La Cream's tracks, as it was composed and produced by Ari Lehtonen from La Cream. Tess' forthcoming album was composed and produced by David Kreuger, Jörgen Elofsson, C&N Project, Juha Myllylä and Jorge Vasconcelo, who is the former member of La Cream.
The next single is entitled Viva L'amor. On the 20th of May Tess participated on NRJ Spring Break Party in Kungsträdgården (Stockholm). On the 15th-16th of June Tess performed at the Power Summer Party (On the 15th in Gothenburg/Liseberg and on the 16th in Stockholm/Gröna Lund). On the 23rd of October she released her debut album.
2002 : Tess' voice was featured by the SM-Trax project, and the single was released in Germany. She was also featured on the track Dum Da Dum released in 2002 as Gee Moore vs. Tess. This song was actually a cover of the Melodie MC's classic originally released in 1993. It was only released on a compilation called Clubber's Guide To... 2002.
2004 : Tess is back for good with a new single called The Second You Sleep. It peaked to #12 in August in the Swedish charts. A very hot video was recorded...

Musical team : Matahari, Selenia (both also took part to the Kangaroo project, but is it the same Selenia that took part to 3-O-Matic's album ?), Gigi Cerin, Danny Milano. The single was released in Italy under Dig It - Mela Music and in Germany under Direct Effect. The vocalist really sounded like Annerly Gordon.
According to their biography published by their records company, SAIFAM Publishing Group, the commercial house music was for Texture the best sound to get the public. They were born in 1990 and they began the training by singing and playing famous international house-covers in discotheques and clubs. The live performances allowed them to create their own music and style. This long and lucky adventure helped the band to gather the ideas and the sound of its first record.
In 1993 the project was ready and they got a contract with newly founded label Hot line records in Milan. The single Always was produced by Farina and Crivellente, and recorded at Factory Sound studios. It was their first single, and also the first entry in Hot Line records' catalog. Annerly Gordon could have done vocals for the single.
The two next singles The Power Of Love and Take A Chance On Me did some waves in the music world, sure to be big hits in discotheques thanks to their strong rhythm and good keyboard playing. After several changes in the band, now composed by Barbara Marani and Alessandro Perrone, goes on with the success.

I'm On Your Side (1994)
Records company : SAIFAM Publishing Group.
Musical team : Mauro Farina, F. Serra
TH Express project was created by the French record company Ramdam Factory in collaboration with Mauro Farina from SAIFAM Publishing Group.The group featured Fauve as frontlady, while Ramses (the model and dancer Djanis Mitchell) did the raps. The two first singles, I'm On Your Side and Missing In The Rain were a hit on dance floors in Spain, Japan, Benelux, South America and especially in France, where the group did most of their shows, and where their video clips were recorded. Strangely, on the sleeve on one of the versions of I'm On Your Side, one can read "TH Express feat Moe". Actually there is a strong probabilty that Fauve has never sung for TH Express. Annerly Gordon was the voice on I'm On Your Side. As for the other songs on the album, rumors said that Melody Castellari sung on Love 4 Liberty. More recently, it was revealed that vocals actually belonged to singer Jackie Bodimead. Fauve only did the French spoken parts on the album track Crazy 4 Love. As for Djanis, he probably lipsynced too the raps performed by Daniel Sous.
In April 1996, the album Love 4 Liberty (an excellent album containing some amazing eurodance tracks, such as Luv Luv Luv or Coming Up which was covered by a project called Piccadilly) was released, together with their 3rd single (with the same name). Although their first singles were typically eurodance tracks, Love 4 Liberty sounded more housy, following the mainstream of European dancemusic (even if one of its remixes was an amazing Eurodance track). Daniel Sous is thought to have done the male raps on I Love To Dance, Missing In The Rain, Nite Away, Lonely Mind and Crazy 4 Love. Ragga-raps on I'm On Your Side and Love Hate Love could have been done by another rapper, still unknown so far...
In 1997, they released another single, called I'll Be Your Number One, their last real Eurodance song. On this track, which is not featured on the album, there was no rap.
May 1998 : after a year of wait, a new TH Express single was out in Italy. Called Tierra Del Sol, it should have been licensed in France through Ramdam Factory but finally it was never released in this country. It was a latino song close to Bahia (Todos Cantares). Then came in 1999 the remixes of I'm On Your Side RMX 2000 and Bahia RMX 2000. We had to wait another year to have another new original single released : Angel Of Love (under One-Way records).
2000 : TH Express released a remix of Love 4 Liberty.
2002 : the album Love 4 Liberty 2002 was released in Russia by the company Cool Hit Publishing Y2K. It contained the originals songs released between 1994 and 2000, as well as some remixes and a multimedia part with the clips of Love For Liberty, Missing In The Rain and I'll Be Your Number One.
2008 : tracks keep on being recorded and released under the name TH Express. They are usually available as digital releases only. In January, Whatever I Do Wherever I Go was released. It featured the current SAIFAM "standard singer" (known as Hazell). She comes from the United States...
Frozen, a very nice dance duet, was released on June 2nd.
2010 : Djanis tries to launch a carreer of underground rapper.

Members : Charles Simmons (vocals and rap) Ayla J. (vocals), Iris Trevisan (vocals), Virginia Michailoglou (profi dancer), Nejet Yolcu (profi dancer)
The group was formed in 1994 by Felix J. Gauder and Olaf Roberto Bossi. Together with Charles Simmons, the frontman and singer of The Free, they composed and arranged their music in a high-tech home studio. They spent weeks composing and arranging intro, strophe, bridge and refrain so it should be a perfect rhythm, with groove and melody all in one piece. With meticulous detail work and with great enthusiasm the result was the typical The Free chart- and club compatible Euro-Pop-Housemusic style and also some sentimental Soul-ballads.
Everything has begun with their first release Born Crazy on Sony Music Dance Pool, which was accomplishedby the co-operation with manager Andreas 'Bär' Lasker and his BearMusic Factory. In the typical euro style Iris Trevisan, singer at that time, and rapper Charles Simmons sang themselves into the 'earthlyheaven' of the artists. At the first go the debut single Born Crazy managed to hit the top 50 of Media Control.
With the second single Lover On The Line the producers together with Charles Simmons who also works as songwriter prepared thefurther success of The Free. Lover On The Line became the club and disco hit as such and the paved the way for countless LIVE gigs across Germany partly in the course of the Coca-Cola Mega Mix Connection. Thissong raced into the top 40 as well and the third single Dance The Night Away reached no.44 of the MCC despite the easing off euro trash movement.
In the middle of 1995 singer Iris Trevisan left The Free for health reasons. The newest member of The Free was singer and front woman Alida Johnson (Ayla J). With her, new tracks were recorded, produced and dressed into a club and chart compatible garment. However, none of them had been released as single.
With their now released fourth single Shout The Free prove that the switch to pop house did more than succeed. Solely the name Charles Simmons stands for one of the best soul/house voices in the dance of thenineties. An additional pleasure are the Shout Remixes by DJ Quicksilver, Nico Herz und Drop Dishes which where specially ordered for the clubs.
At the album Crazy Worlds, published in April, there were more than the already mentioned titles, e.g. Loveletter From Space which could be confidently classified with "the finest in euro pop house". Another bonus are the partly remixed tracks Lover On The Line and Dance The Night Away as well as the wide musical spectrum from euro house via club soul up to catchy soul ballads. About Loveletter From Space : "I believe the track was inspired by a love letter Olaf wrote to his then girlfriend (now his wife since over five years.)" Charles Simmons explains.
Also in 1996 The Free planned to perform their music live. With a new stageshow, new outfits, the professional dancers Nejet Yolcu and Virginia Michailoglou and a polished choreography they will present themselves real live on tour again.
Afterwards a single was recorded but never released, Fly, still featuring Charles' voice alone. It also included a B-side entitled You're The One For Me. Afterwards, the contract of the group with Dance Pool (Sony Music) expired, and was not renewed.
2001 : a track called Loveletter From Space 2001 was released under the name Relounge feat. Charles Simmons.
2003 : in an interview done by Mikeoy (Serious Eurodance) in July 2003, Charles Simmons gave some news about the different members of the project. Olaf Bossi was attending Audio Engineering school, Felix Gauder was currently producing Jimmy Sommerville, and also working on his project Novaspace. Charles himself was doing lots of live gigs in Germany, a lot of songwriting and some producing, mostly for R&B, Hip-Hop and Pop projects. and Alida (Ayla J) got married and had moved in the USA. He concluded : "We've all moved on, but The Free was a nice ride".

The Immortals were a Belgian project created by Maurice Engelen (Praga Khan) and Oliver Adams (2 Fabiola, Boyz) after Virgin asked them to write and produce an album for the #1 videogame of the time "Mortal Kombat".
Maurice and Oliver had already collaborated together on the project Lords of Acid. Featured singers were Dieter Troubleyn, and Julie Wells (also vocalist of Channel X). Some songs reminded to 2 Unlimited's early releases.
All the songs of the album were inspired in the fighting videogame "Mortal Kombat" released by American videogame publisher and developer Midway in 1992. The album featured a song for each character, except Reptile, and Shang Tsung those who also appeared in the first videogame of MK.
In Mortal Kombat were named Kano, Liu Kang, Raiden, Johnny Cage, Scorpion, Sub-Zero, Sonya. The single was released in 1993, for the first Mortal Kombat movie soundtrack. It was also used in TV advertisements for the movie trailer, and Mortal Kombat: Live Tour
Sonya (Go Go Go), a very nice eurodance track inspired from the character Sonya Blade, was released as single in 1994.
Praga Khan and Oliver Adams then started collaborating on the project Channel X.
In 1997 they released Techno Syndrome ('97 Mix) with new character names added, this time Liu Kang, Sonya, Jax, Kitana, Jade, Sub-Zero, Scorpion, Cyrax, Smoke, Sheeva, Motaro.
Theme From Mortal Kombat (Encounter The Ultimate) appeared on "Mortal Kombat Annihilation"'s movie original motion soundtrack album.

KLF means Kings Of The Low Frequency or Kopyright Liberation Front. The 2 producers Bill Drummond and Jimmy Cauty featured various rappers (such as Ricardo Da Force ) and vocalists. Trancentral was the name of their recording studio.
At the start of 1987 The Justified Ancients of Mu Mu (the JAMs) released their debut single All You Need Is Love, an anti-AIDS anthem featuring large chunks of illegal sampling, to great underground success. The follow-up album, 1987: What The Fuck Is Going On? continued the sampling trend, and managed to get them sued by Abba - even travelling to Sweden to appeal to them directly could not change Abba's mind, and all copies of 1987 were (supposedly) destroyed. One of their infamous press released of the time said 'We'll make another LP before Christmas, after that fuck it!'
In 1988 they decided that they wanted a UK #1 single, so they wrote one. Masquerading as The Timelords, they took three records they hadn't written, put them together, and reached number one with Doctorin' The Tardis, inspired from Dr Who TV series. Gary Glitter was enlisted to help with the remixes. After that they published a book, 'The Manual: How To Have A Number One The Easy Way to tell everybody how it was done, and how they too could top the charts. It was reportedly used by the project Edelweiss to secure their hit Bring Me Edelweiss.
By 1989, the newly-renamed KLF began their influence on the growing underground club scene, with a Pure Trance series of records and now-club classics such as What Time Is Love? (# 5 in the UK, # 2 in Israel, top 40 in the USA) and It's Grim Up North (as the JAMs). During 1990 and particularly 1991, they went on to have a succession of UK chart successes, including Last Train To Trancentral (# 1 in Israel, # 5 in the UK, top 10 in the USA), 3:am Eternal (# 1 in Israel, # 1 in the UK, # 5 in the USA), America: What Time Is Love?, and a collaboration with country & western singer Tammy Wynette called Justified & Ancient (# 1 in Israel, # 2 in the UK, top 20 in the USA). Their most successful commercial album was the 1991 version of The White Room, supposedly the soundtrack to an unreleased road movie filmed in the Sierra Nevada.
On February 12h 1992, they appeared on the Brit Awards in a collaboration with Extreme Noise Terror, with whom they also worked on an also unreleased Black Room album. They performed a live version of 3 A.M. Eternal : a "violently antagonistic performance" in front of "a stunned music-business audience". Drummond and Cauty had first planned to throw buckets of sheep's blood over the audience, but were prevented from doing so (due to opposition from BBC lawyers and Extreme Noise Terror themselves). The performance was instead garnished by a limping, kilted, cigar-chomping Drummond firing blanks from an automatic weapon over the heads of the crowd. As the band left the stage, The KLF's promoter and narrator Scott Piering announced over the PA system that "The KLF have now left the music business". Later in the evening, the band dumped a dead sheep with the message "I died for ewe - bon appetit" tied around its waist at the entrance to one of the post-ceremony parties. New Musical Express magazine listed it at #4 in their "top 100 rock moments".
The retired KLF deleted all of their past releases and consequently raising the prices of original KLF material greatly. "The last grand gesture, the most heroic act of public self destruction in the history of pop" as qualified by the magazine Select. The KLF quickly became 'legend' and the mystery around their sudden departure from the music industry became an enduring mystery...
During 1994 they attracted media attention as the K Foundation, mostly notably for burning one million pounds on a remote Scottish island, and undermining the art world's respected Turner Prize (20,000 pounds for the best work of art) by awarding, on the same night as the Turner award was announced, their own award of 40,000 pounds for the worst work of art- to the same person...
In 1995 they contributed a two-minute track, The Magnificent, to the 'HELP' charity album. In 1996 Bill Drummond, co-wrote a book, Bad Wisdom, about the experience of taking an icon of Elvis to the North Pole. Since then many rumours about what they're up to have circulated, but nobody can say for sure just what they're up to...
They released one track in 1999 under the name of 2K: Fuck The Millenium (a remix of What Time Is Love? featuring Acid Brass and incorporating elements of the hymn Eternal Father, Strong to Save), which entered top 40 in the in the UK only. They performed it once at London's Barbican Arts Centre, dresed like 2 elederly people in motorized wheel-chairs.
These activities were accompanied by the usual full page press adverts, this time asking readers "Fuck The Millennium: Yes/No?" with a telephone number provided for voting. At the same time, Drummond and Cauty also founded K2 Plant Hire, with plans to build a "People's Pyramid" from used house bricks; this plan never reached fruition
Bill Drummond continues to work as a writer and conceptual artist. Jimmy Cauty has been involved in several post-KLF projects including the music and conceptual art collective Blacksmoke and the electronic music group the Transit Kings, which saw him reunited with his former partner from The Orb, Alex Paterson.
The KLF were told to have released a live album in 2001 but actually it was just a bootleg. In January 2002 Muzik Magazine made a top 50 of best dance albums all time. Chill Out and The White Room both were in the list.
2010 : Bill Drummond continues to work as a writer and conceptual artist, with occasional appearances on radio and television. Jimmy Cauty has been involved in several post-KLF projects including the music and conceptual art collective Blacksmoke and, more recently, numerous creative projects with the aquarium and the L-13 Light Industrial Workshop based in Clerkenwell, London.
2011 : Bill Drummond and Jimmy Cauty appear to be making another comback under the name FLK. In June they played one concert dressed as cows.

Go Just Get It was the single presenting the performers team. In the credits of the singles, apart from the names of David Brandes and John O'Flynn, one could read the name of Thea Austin. Is she the real vocalist ?

Melanie Janene Thornton was born in May 13th 1967 in Charleston, South Carolina. She studied voice from the age of six, played the piano and the clarinet and learned how to act and to dance. She had long dreamed of a career in music. Her parents had a friend of a friend who was a singer in Charleston. Even though she didn't get to go out and see her, she saw pictures and heard them talk about her work and heard her talk about going out on the road.When she was growing up her mother would listen to Aretha Franklin, Roberta Flack and The Temptations, a lot of the Motown music artists. She would mimic the female vocalists she saw on TV or heard on radio. Later, Melanie financed her College studies with appearances in talent shows and smaller band concerts. She frequented a club called The Peacock Lounge, getting up and doing jam sessions when the live band invited people up to sing.
After contributing to the wedding jazz band Danger Zone in Macon, Georgia, Melanie 'fled the gigantic anonymity of America' and on the 14th February 1992 went to Germany with only 15 $ in her bag. Her sister, who lived already in Germany offered her a place to stay and a opportunity to and work with her husband's uncle Bob Chisolm, a singer and piano player. "He introduced me to a lot of musicians. I basically did freelance singing. Musicians that heard about me would call and I would go do gigs. First in jazz and blues, which was mostly the repertoire for the gigs Uncle Bob got me. That led to meeting small-time producers that were still banging out dance singles or playbacks in their basement studios" Melanie explains. On her second evening in her new homeland she was already on stage in Munich. This femme fatale completely wowed Europe with her southern charms and as a touring jazz and blues singer. "I did several studio sessions where for me it was just more income and fun work, new experiences, working in the studios, cowriting with producers on these dance songs". That's how her gorgeous voice contributed to many euro projects such as 100%, Comic or Men Behind. She did tours through Switzerland, Germany and Spain. She settled in Cologne.
1993 she met Ulli Brenner and Amir Saraf. After the first few notes Melanie sang, they all new that she would be the right female singer for their long dreamed of project, La Bouche. Melanie says : "Looking back, it seems like it happened very quickly. In the process, it really didn't blow me away. I did the studio session with Amir Saraf and Uli Brenner in November 1993. Meanwhile, I was gigging, making my money, earning my living. Two months later, they called and said a record label was interested in releasing Sweet Dreams as a single". The producer and owner of the label was Frank Farian.
Meanwhile Melanie recorded one song under the project name Joy-lab. Called Freedom (Free Your Mind), it sounded a little like Robin S hot Show Me Love. Some years later, in September 2001 the single was reedited by Shift media/ZYX Music.
Between 1994 and 1995, she was featured by Schnapka Connection (a band of Rolf-Dieter Schnapka). They appeared in Spaß auf der Gass, a TV show taking place on sunday evenings on SWF 3 Mainz.
It was in April or May of 1994 that Sweet Dreams started making some noise in Italy. Then all of a sudden it shot up to #1. "Lane McCray came into the picture after the initial recording and after the signing and everything. When it went to #1 in Italy, it was serious. We had to get in place and start milking this product to take it as far as possible. Basically, that's what we did. I was doing less and less gigging and more and more La Bouche stuff, and I was now doing songs I'd actually recorded. That was exciting."
This sudden success was great for Melanie, but to her it was like a gradual thing, a very happy feeling. She explains "It was like, "Oh, wow! This is something I dreamed of when I was six years old." But, at the same time, we were traveling so much. We really didn't have the time to soak in the momentum of our success - to soak in the hype and believe the hype. We were working really hard at this point. We would go places and people would go crazy to see us, and this was interesting. At the same time, I kind of kept in mind, "This is really great. I hope we can continue to produce music our fans love." But I always tried to keep a reality check. "This is because this song is so widely publicized and promoted. And it IS a great song, but it's more about the product at this point than ourselves."
Melanie bought a house and then got married. She left la Bouche in February 2000, ending her contract with BMG, to be replaced by Natascha Wright while Lane remained a part of the project. She signed a record deal with Epic/Sony. She changed her look (cut her hair). She explains : "I think La Bouche was a wonderful opportunity - and part of me is La Bouche. But I don't just want to continue to be a dance artist, trying to be young and trendy, like dance artists have to be". She started working with a group of producers both in Germany and in the United States
Her first solo single was released in October 2000 : Love How You Love Me, a ballad (but the CD-maxi included a few dance versions). The single was, as she described it, 'an open confession to the great love, a love which grows silently and lasts eternally'.
Melanie presented her new single on 29th November on the RTL Spendenmarathon, and on the 1st December at the Dome in Berlin. One could also chat with her on the www.funonline.de website on the 30th of November. The follow-up single was entitled Heartbeat.
2001 : Melanie released her first solo album entitled Ready To Fly on April 30th under the label X-Cell (Epic/Sony Music). According to an interview she gave and in which she explained that her favourite musical artists remained Mariah Carey and Whitney Houston, we could guess that the album would not be eurodance related, unfortunately... Meanwhile she kept on doing club appearances in US clubs under the name of "Melanie Thornton, formerly of La Bouche" (she had the double nationality : American and German).
Melanie's third single to be released was Ooh Ooh (Talking About Love). The song has been remixed for the single release, to have much more power than it already had. Meanwhile her first album, produced by Julien Nairolf and Mitchell Lennox, reached #18 in the charts.
2001 : she released Wonderful Dream, a Christmas ballad recorded for a Coca-Cola TV commercial.
24th November 2001 : Melanie died in a plane crash near Zurich. Saturday night she performed in Leipzig and then she drove to Berlin where she took the plane to Zurich for radio and TV appearances (among others, the broadcast "Die Bar" on TV3, which was cancelled) to promote her new single Wonderful Dream (Holidays Are Coming). Her album was planned to be re-released on the 26th of November. Melanie was only 34 years old...
2002 : a posthumous single entitled In Your Life was released under the name of La Bouche feat Melanie Thornton. This very nice dance track was an unreleased song composed and recorded by Melanie. The single included a B-side called Take Me 2 Heaven 2 Night.
Thornton is buried in Mount Pleasant Memorial Gardens, Mount Pleasant, South Carolina. A Melanie Thornton Youth Arts Foundation was created in Georgia
2018 : Wonderful Dream (Holidays are Coming) was back in the charts. It was #7 in Germany, #14 in Austria, #25 in Slovakia, #45 in Switzerland, #36 Europe Official Top100, #33 World Singles Official Top 100, #36 in Airplay World Official and #98 in Top40-Charts.com Web Top 100.

Ti Pi Cal is a Sicilian formation (South of Italy). It took its name from the DJs and producers' names first syllabes : Daniele TIgnino, Riccardo PIparo, Vincenzo CALlea. After rather anonymous debuts in 1993 with the mix I Know, and a good test under the name of Power Fun, they entered easily the road of success. To help them in the first two years, had contributed in particular way the voice of the American male singer Josh Colow. He interpreted Illusion (which remained 13 weeks in Hitparade), Round And Around (which stayed 17 weeks !), The Colour Inside (12 weeks in a row at the top of the Italian Singles Sales Chart), and It Hurts (10 weeks). After the the single Why Me (which stayed "only" 7 weeks), published in June 1996, the collaboration between Josh and Ti Pi Cal ended.
This divorce could had been be reflected negatively on the future records, but actually it is served to the Sicialian group in order to modify the genre, moving from underground style, towards eurodance music. For the vocal part they chose Kimara Lawson who contributed to bring back Ti Pi Cal in all the Charts tops with Hidden Passion (13 weeks), Live For Today, Follow Your Heart and Music Is My Life. All singles were released under Lup Records.
In 1996, they also released the single Gimme Love under the project name Kasto.
After all these hits, which had helped them gaining respect in the musical world, every member's desire to concentrate himself on his own producer activity was growing daily. Finally they decided to put Ti Pi Cal on a halt. Tignino created the project Love Bite, Callea gave birth to Bamble B and Naive, Piparo stood behind DeJavu.
Then in 2001 these three creative minds joined again under Ultralab, a young label of Virgin. In spring 2001, the single Is This The Love was out, featuring once again the voice of Josh. It was programmed on all Italian radios and discotheques.
In 2006, a single entitled What I Like was recorded. Featuring Kimara's voice, it was released as promo only.
2011 : Alex Gaudino & Jason Rooney did a 2011 remix of Ti Pi Cal's single Round And Around. Ti Pi Cal are back with a new single entitled Stars, featuring vocals by Josh. An album also entitled Stars followed. Then came the single Where Is The World, a pop acoustaic track.

Tiggy (Charlotte Vigel) was born and brought up on the island of Bornholm where, thanks to her parents' great interest in amateur theatricals, she made her stage debut at the tender age of 10 years. As a result of her theatre performances, it was only natural that she developed a great interest in dancing and this led to her taking part in a number of competitions all over Denmark as well as to forming her own dance group.
It was when Tiggy was "sweet sixteen" that she started in earnest to concentrate on music. She became the lead singer in both a dance band and a rock band and performed at numerous concerts. She went on tour with Next Stop Soviet and took part in the Danish weekly magazine, "Se og H¢r"'s Melodi Grand Prix competition, winning a place in the finals. After an open-air concert, Tiggy was offered a record contract by a German producer from Hamburg.
In 1990, Tiggy got the job of news presenter on TV2 Bornholm and was an immediate success.
In 1991 Tiggy moved to Copenhagen, where she at once became involved in, and a member of, a cabaret trio. At the same time, she got a steady job with Fullmoon Studio and has been one of its lead, backing and jingle singers ever since.
In 1994, after a lot of encouragement to develop her singing talent more seriously, Tiggy started taking lessons at a music school in Lund, Sweden. Shortly afterwards, she enrolled at the Copenhagen Academy of Music.
In 1995, Tiggy attended an audition and was straight away taken on as member of a girl trio. In April that year their single, Surprise Surprise was released and the following month, the trio was invited to perform on "Eleva2ren", a popular Danish TV entertainment programme. Then things started moving and Tiggy was offered the job of singer in the Danish Ny Teater production of the musical farce, "La Cage Aux Folles" and ended up both singing and dancing as well as performing a small acting role. Carried away by working, Tiggy went on to land an engagement in Betty Glosted's summer cabaret.
For years now, Tiggy has been a solo singer on several "Krumme" (a popular Danish children's comedy film) soundtracks, so she was also a soloist on "Krummernes Jul" (the Christmas version of the film series). She has also been the lead singer in several bands including Streetbeat and Legend.
In 1996, Tiggy's collaboration with Flex Records started. This was in connection with the song Ring A Ling, produced by Hartmann & Langhoff, who also worked with Aqua and Me & My etc etc. The collaboration worked out so well that the song turned into a smash hit. The single was released on 29th January 1997 and after only 8 days in the shops, it shot to No. 1 on the official single sales list. The song went platinum in record time (less than a month) and stayed at No. 1 for 8 weeks.
The follow-up single Simsalabim, again produced by Hartmann & Langhoff, was released on 16th April 1997 and followed in Ring A Ling's footsteps by immediately zooming to No. 1 on the sales list. Tiggy's debut album, Fairy Tales was released on 7th May 1997 in connection with a huge release party at the Park Club in Copenhagen. The album reached gold with provisional sales of 40,000 after only 2 weeks and the final sales figures were extremely close to platinum. This album also took Tiggy's music outside Denmark and Fairy Tales was released in several countries including Mexico, Japan, Spain, Belgium and Russia.
On 2nd September 1998 the first single, Hooked On A Feeling, from Tiggy's second album, was released. The style of the new album is pure pop music, which is less like Euro pop than that of the debut album, Fairy Tales. The new album has been produced by Hartmann & Langhoff, Sunzet, Candy Hill (Ace of Base, Ultimate Kaos) and several others. The album was expected to be released mid-February 1999.
Charlotte currently works as a radio-host, in the morningshow "Morgenhyrderne" (the morning-shepards) at the Danish commercial radiostation Radio 100fm together with two Danish male comedians; Lasse Rimmer and Jacob Wilson.

Das Omen Teil I '94 (1994)
The members of TNT Party Zone are Tillmann Uhrmacher and Nino Tielmann (maybe the name TNT comes from the first letters of their names).
Vamos A La Playa'92 highest position was # 29 in the German sales charts in 1992. A remixes vinyl was released, as well as for the follow-up single No Tengo Dinero. Then came One Night In Bangkok in 1993 (a cover of the Murray Head hit, which would be later covered by the Vinylshakerz in 2005), released under Strictly Dance. Das Omen Teil I '94, released under the Dance Pool label, reached # 88 in 1994.
Tillmann Uhrenmacher was also involved at Mysterious Art back in 1989, so that
it is no surprise that TNT Party Zone did a remake of the original
Das Omen I.

They split in 1984, the same year Raff and Mario created Ram Productions label (RAM = Raff and Mario). In 1985, Raff created RA - RE Productions (RA - RE = Raff Record). Paciulli, then Sergio Bonzanni (in 1988) joined the team. Without abandoning RA - RE Productions, Sergio and Raff founded Magma Records label.

He started to write his own songs when he turned 15 and at the age of 16 he got involved in a Moldovan folk band named Stejareii. When he was 17 he started to take singing lessons with Russian opera singer Larisa Shulga.
He then became the youngest member of boys band O-Zone, which scored huge hits with Dragostea Din Tei and Despre Tine, selling millions of records. He then started a solo career under the artist name Arsenium and released his first single Love me… Love me….

The same year, he took part in the Dansez Pentru Tine Dance Contes, the Romanian version of real-TV show Dancing with the Stars, and took the second place (winner was Romanian singer Andra). His first album The 33rd Element was released in Romania and the rest of Eastern Europe in the summer.
2007 : in June Arsenie released his 3rd single Professional Heartbreakers along with a 3D animated videoclip.
2008 : Arsenie released the single Rumadai, which was a summer hit in many European countries.

Records company : LED Records. The female vocalist is Annerly Gordon.

It was produced by Daniele Tognacca, Ivan Gechele, Luigi Stanga, programmed and arranged Ivan Gechele and Luigi Stanga.
When asked about Enough Of Your Love, he even looks surprised that anyone remembers this beautiful eurodance track : "I had forgotten and I do not know not even if it is existed effectively. It was a track that traced Hymn of Cabballero, which in that period (between the end of 1994 and the beginning of 1995) was in head in all the charts. I must have a copy of it..."
The other singles were released under the name of DJ Tony H : such as Zoo Future, Sicilia, JFK, Overdose... He also did many remixes, for instance for Datura (El Sueno 2002). He worked on the radio : in 1994 his artistic gift brought him to co-produce with DJ Molella a radio program of progressive music, Molly 4 Dee Jayin. In 1997, he produced his first radio show : From Disco To Disco, two hours every saturday night with techno & trance music. Then in 1999 he had become one of the most important djs of Radio DeeJay and his selections of mixes were broadcasted daily in a particular radio program : Mixin' 4 You.

Muhammar Remix 1999 (1999)
Touch El Arab was created by Philippe Olivier and started back in 1987 with the ethno-pop track Muhammar. The single was very successful at that time, but no other single followed. Philippe Olivier gave up the project in 1988. But 6 years later he decided, with the producer Alexander Friedrich, to release a new version of Muhammar. They found a female vocalist by chance : Diana Luiz was a student working in a pizzeria. She happened to deliver a pizza at their studio. Their production result in 2 great Eurodance tracks with a few samples of Arabic songs.
Starship Race was recorded and mixed at the Fort Vox Recording Studio, Bale, Switzerland. It was produced by Forward Phoenix Industries. It was mixed by Hoover, Monroe, Hyne, with assistance of Massias Meyer. Executive production and mastering by Carlos Peron
Before Touch El Arab they had recorded tracks under the name Billy Bordelli. They had some problems because they played nude on some gigs. Later Philippe Alioth recorded under the name Spartak where he made more Industrial sound, after that he got more techno/house related with Alexander Friedrich as Alioth & Friedrich.

Toy Box are Anila Mirza and Amir El Falaki. They had met each other at a New Year's Eve party in 1996 and decided to combine their talents... They had been both singing and dancing professionally for some years, and they also stand behind the choreographies of the group.
Anila was born in Hillerid (Denmark) on the 8th October 1974. Anila's parents are from Indonesia and, when she was young, they moved to Denmark and made a very good life. Amir was born in Copenhagen (Denmark), on the 12th of August 1973. He is 1,86 m tall and he loves playing football, dancing, and playing with his Playstation. Before becoming a part of Toy-Box, he used to be a dance teacher.
In the end of 1998 they released their debut single Tarzan & Jane. A couple months afterwards, they came up with a new single : Best Friend, which became a major hit. During some time, the 2 first singles remained in the the same charts, on a very high position. Best Friend even peaked #1 in the charts. Then Toy-Box came up with The Sailorsong, but that didn't work out to be a big hit. The song entered in the Top 20, but it didn't got any higher. The follow-up Teddybear was even less succesful : it entered the Tipparade in Holland, but it didn't came in the charts. Anila and Amir were little bit disappointed, because they had believed very strongly in Teddybear.
Meanwhile their first album Fantastic had some success, especially in Holland, where it reached #1 after only 2 weeks. It took a long time before it got any lower. After 1 year the album disappeared from the charts, but after a while it came back.
Their second album Toy Ride included the song Russian Lullaby, a cover of E-type's hit song.
2004 : Anila is currently working on her solo carreer and she changed her name to Aneela. Like many others, she turned to pop and RnB style. An album is currently being recorded. In February, a live concert was planned in Copenhagen.
2006 : Aneela already released 2 singles : Jaande and Chori Chori (a Bollywood-style song, with Arash, on a melody already used by Snow for his rap single Informer in the early 90s).
2010 : Aneela was in the UK to record her second solo album and to practise some show rehearsals for her tour "Say Na". Rumors about a possible Toy-Box comeback started to spread.
2011 : Toy-Box could be back. Aneela told in a message to Bubblegum Dancer that they were"currently recording new material and getting ready for the launch…"
2012 : Aneela announced that a new single and album from Toy-Box were being recorded and were almost ready for release, as well as they planned to do a world tour. But on November 13th 2012, Aneela announced that, due to complications with their record label, and after a long two year battle, they had decided to not release new music as Toy-Box anymore. However, she didn't rule out that her and Amir may eventually return under a new name.
2017 : Tarzan & Jane was covered by Gina-Lisa & Florian Wess.

Turn Up The Power (15th Feb 1994)
Get Up (Oct 1994)
Trance X-press is a project produced by Fabrice Nyiri and François-Xavier Legleye. Both singles were released under the label Three Little Boys.
Turn Up the Power was a powerful eurodance cover of the N-Trance hit, it had even more success in France than the original song ! (#22 in Club Charts and featured on popular samplers like Dance Machine). The B-side called Get Up was made with Régis Ducatillon and was a great eurodance anthem. Some radio stations such as M40 decided to airplay this track instead of the single !
That's the reason why Trance X-press team decided to remix & release Get Up as a full single, adding new synth parts and a ragga-rap. They did it with the help of their neighbour from French North and producer, Fred Riester. But it did not have the same success.

Mirror Mirror (19th Dec 1997)
His real name is Keith McGuffey and he comes from Danville, Kentucky. He started writing songs when he was only nine years old
Trey D is an old friend of Kevin Richardson from the Backstreet Boys. He met him at the age of 12 when he attended Kevin's family's church camp. The two young men began writing songs, some of which were eventually used for the Backstreet Boys' first demos
After graduating high school he attended the University of Kentucky for two years, then joined the U.S.Navy and was stationed in Little Creek, VA. He got his record deal when after Kevin invited him down to Orlando for a visit. When he got down there he auditioned for the Transcontinental Records folks and got a record deal.
While perfecting his act, Keith toured Europe as a bodyguard for the Backstreet Boys, and subsequently became their opening act as Trey D. He wrote and perfomed all of his own songs, including his singles, which were very successful in Europe and Asia. Keith also wrote for the Backstreet Boys first album (Get Down) and Aaron Carter's album (Get Wild). Apart form his solo carreer and songwriting contributions he also took part to Centory 's Girl You Know It's True.
His first solo single was entitled Higher and Higher. The second single was called Mirror Mirror, it was written by Gary Carolla and Keith himself, composed by Gary Carolla (who also did the remixes), mixed in Orlando, Florida. The additionnal vocals were done by Shawn Fisher. The single was co-produced by Johnny Wright and Gary Carolla.
The third single was entitled Can't Wait Until Tomorrow. In 1999, Trey D released a self-titled album under Edel records.
After touring the world and US as an opening act for both the Backstreet Boys and NSync, Keith decided to stop as an entertainer and become a player behind the scenes. He created two songs that the Backstreet Boys recorded and released on their album Black and Blue (More Than That and Shining Star). He has a joint venture with Sony/ATV in New York that allows him to develop aspiring songwriters (Shakertown Music Publishing). Keith is also a founding partner in Avenue 3 Music, a production company that develops artists for recording deals. Keith is currently writing and producing songs for various artists and recording and developing local talent in Louisville.
Kevin Richardson and Keith, still big friends throughout these years, wanted to give back to their home state and surrounding areas and provide aspiring artists, musicians, songwriters, producers and engineers the foundation and necessary tools that are essential to succeeding in the music industry. This dream led them to The Music Workshop : a comprehensive company that would educate and guide aspiring musical artists through workshops, personal consulting, and professional demo recording.

Rapper of Snap and Centory
He was born on the 30th of April 1967 in Pittsburgh (Pennsylvania, USA). He is 1,95 m tall. He started his musical career as drummer with a heavy metal band in his hometown
He was sent to Frankfurt in 1985 by his Uncle Sam to become a bomb disposal expert. Rico Sparx and Moses P discovered he was a first class rapper and human beat-box. After his discharge he returned to the USA but went back to Germany to continue his musical carrer.
His talents earned him spots with acts such as Maze and The Fat Boys. He has shared the stage with such artists as Chaka Kahn, Michael Jackson, Natalie Cole, Sinbad, Hall & Oates, and even Tom Jones. He also collaborated with Mark Spoon.
Germany-based producers Benito Benites and John Garrett Virgo III, had put together a project they would call Snap!, after a function on a sequencing programme. They recorded a song called The Power which was built from samples of New York rapper Chill Rob G (Robert Frazier)'s Let The Rhythm Flow. They added the powerful female backing vocals of Penny Ford. The record was first released on the Wild Pitch Records label in America with the credit Snap featuring Chill Rob G. However, after the first 30.000 sales, problems with Chill began to manifest themselves and they sought a replacement. They chose Butler, who was renamed Turbo B.
Chill was allowed to release his own version of The Power in America. Around the rest of the world a new version, featuring Turbo B, topped the charts. To promote the record, Turbo and Penny Ford toured widely, before she started on a solo career and was replaced by Thea Austin. Whereas they continued to score colossal hits with Oops Up, Cult Of Snap and Mary Had A Little Boy, dissent had set in. Turbo wanted more artistic input, and contested the choice of Rhythm Is A Dancer as projected lead-off single for the band's second album. He told that he hated the song and influenced the producers in their decision to release The Colour Of Love instead. The single flopped, whereas Rhythm Is A Dancer became another international smash (the biggest selling UK single of 1992). By now the rift between the parties was irreconcilable. Turbo had signed up for a solo career (debuting with I'm Not Dead on Polydor Records, with vocals by Thea) while the Snap! single was still climbing in several territories. Thea Austin too found herself a solo contract.
Between 1994 and 1997 Turbo B created many projects in which he appeared or not : Centory, the Porn Boys... He did raps on Comic's I Surrender To Your Love. Then he moved to Orlando (Florida).
1999 : he released a single featured by the ex cover-girl Victoria Silvstedt (Rocksteady Love).
2002 : a single was released, entitled Quest featuring Turbo B : Lonely. It was released under ZYX Music
2003 : Turbo B was back with Snap for the singles The Power 2003 and Rhythm Is A Dancer 2003. Then he was featured by Master Blaster on their new single Ballet Dancer.
2005 : Turbo B appeared with Snap in the German TV show Ultimative Charts Show in June. He rapped on The Power, along with Garcia's former vocalist Ouided Khachnaoui. He recorded a new solo single : New Day which will be released on September 26th.
2010 : Turbo B was featured on Regi's album Registrated 2.

Wal Wazil Wal Wa (1994)
Tuti Kanta (real name Tuti Rusmini Kanta Zaini) was the name of the female vocalist featured by the project. She was born on August 14th in Prabumulih - South Sumatera (Indonesia). She moved to Jakarta where she was spotted as she was singing in bars. She worked as a studio vocalist and toured with live bands between 1981 and 1987. Not less than 6 albums and 2 singles were released. First single Madah Cinta was #2 at Best Asian Popular National Song Festival in 1983.
She arrived in Germany in 1988 to follow her German man, and from 1989 she did vocals in live bands and studios in Hamburg. In 1993, she met Rolf Kohler who made her record a cover of When Two Worlds Collide, but the single did not have any success.
Wal Wazil Wal Wa was written and composed by Thorsten Brötzmann who also produced it together with Peter Hoffman. The maxi contained 3 versions : Radio Mix, Club Dance Mix and Trance Mix and was published by TMV Wunderwelt. Released in 1994, it stayed #1 in Isreal's pop charts during 6 weeks.
The same year, she recorded Looking Out For A Hero with Kentucky Band.
In 1995 and 1996, Tuti Kanta sung choruses on Blue System's singles Laila and Only With You. She also contributed to another Dieter Bohlen project, Atisha's single Secret Of The Night. She also recorded some more eurodance songs, such as After Midnight and Rhythm Of The Groove, but they could never have been released...
2000 : she sung cover songs in Pfefferkörner, a TV movie that aired on German TV
From 2004 to 2010, she toured with Marcia Barrett as a member of Boney M. She also works as a vocal coach
2013 : she compted at Supertalent on RTL, but in spite of the fact that she received 4 "yes", her performance never aired. Maybe because of the fact that one of the jury members was Dieter Bohlen ?

Leave Them Alone (the Italian remixes) (1994)
In the year 1989 the Dutch producer and remixer Ruud Van Rijen created Twenty 4 Seven. This became something totally new : a female singer, singing a catchy chorus together with a male rapper. This combination together with a very happy sound, a melody you can't get rid off, became very popular in the Netherlands and beyond.
In the beginning he started out with rapper MC Fixx it. The single was called I Can't Stand It. This was a hip-hop track (100 BPM). The chorus was made by Ruud himself with a vocoder. But the track only was a little hit in the Dutch Tip-Parade. So Ruud started working out a Hip-House version (124 BPM) which was totally different from the original. Nance Coolen was chosen to be sing the chorus. As it was the trend at the time, song also sampled many singles, such as The Jacksons - Can You Feel It and Kurtis Blow - AJ Scratch. This time, I Can't Stand It hit top 20 in Holland.
After a few months, a German records company showed interest in the record. They asked Ruud to re-record it in Germany with a different rapper. I Can't Stand It third version featured raps by Captain Hollywood, along with Nance's vocals. They were joined by 2 dancers Jacks and Hanks who also did the male backing vocals. It became a smash hit all over Europe, charting in September 1990, peaking #7 in the UK, and #3 in Israel, and #1 in many other countries.
After I Can't Stand It Twenty 4 Seven released Are You Dreamin' around Christmas 1989. It was a good follow-up in view of the chart positions it gained. And in 1990 they released the album Street Moves.
At the end of 1991, Captain Hollywood had a little argue with Ruud van Rijen and left the band. After this, he created the Captain Hollywood Project. During this time, Captain Hollywood became even more popular than Twenty 4 Seven :his hits like More & More, Only With You topped charts in whole Europe. Twenty 4 Seven seemed to be fallen asleep. Things were that quiet that Nance decided to take a job at a local supermarket. Can you imagine shopping in a store while Nance is sitting behind the counter ? But Ruud van Reijen wasn’t planning to stop. He asked Nance to join the group again, and asked is she knew a rapper who could replace Captain Hollywood. Nance knew Stay C Paton from some concerts, were they both performed. The first song they recorded together was It Could Have Been You. But this song didn't have the impact as they hoped it would have...
During these years Eurodance became really popular. And suddenly in the late summer of 1993, there was a very 'aanstekelijk' (catchy) song a the radio. It was Slave To The Music. The song started slowly in the charts, but kept on climbing. And many weeks after it entrance it highest position in the charts. But the song didn't stop at the borders of its homeland, it grew and grew. Where most of the Eurodance stayed in west Europe and Japan, Twenty 4 Seven became popular in West Europe, Israel (where it reached position #17 in the national chart), Japan, Australia, South Africa, South America and even East Europe. Twenty 4 Seven was the first dance-act in ex Czechoslovakia who got platinum. They had become a worldwide top-act.
It wasn't just one hit, after Slave To The Music and Is It Love (which peaked #5 in Israel) the third single Take Me Away became even more popular. It smashed the charts all over the world (#5 in Israel), except in England & America. The video-clip of the third single Take Me Away was shot in South Africa.
Stay-C & Nance toured all across Europe and could perform night & day if they would. At this time, Twenty 4 Seven could be considered as one of the most successful dance-act in the world. Then came the single Leave Them Alone, released with a Greatest Hits Megamix and a '94 version of I Can't Stand It.
The third album, I Wanna Show You, was released in December, 1994, at times when the first single from this album, Oh Baby, made it high in the charts in a big part of Europe. The second single Keep On Trying saw its release in March, 1995. The same year in which Twenty 4 Seven proudly received the Dutch Export Award of 1994. In spring 1996 they received a Golden Award for the album I Wanna Show You (South Africa) and double Platinum for the album Slave To The Music (also in South Africa).
While Stay-C & Nance still got a contract till July 1996, no new Twenty 4 Seven material was released. Nance & Stay-C stopped with Twenty 4 Seven and made both a solo single. In an interview on TV Nance told Twenty 4 Seven had split up, she and Stay-C couldn't bear each other anymore. According to their contract they should make a new album. But the only people who worked on Twenty 4 Seven were lawyers to get rid off this album... Twenty 4 Seven was about becoming a closed chapter of Dutch pop music...
But in July 1996 Twenty 4 Seven was back ! Since Nance continued her solo-carrier, Stay-C together with Ruud van Reijen looked for a new female singer and found Stella. She had already a solid musical experience, she had been on tour with artists like Haddaway.
Summer 1996 : the news that Nance & Twenty 4 Seven were performing again was partially true. Nance presented 'Beachpop 1996' in Renesse, a concert where many artists performed, among them Twenty 4 Seven. They also performed in many discos and did many shows on the 'Veronica Zomertruck', a large, riding scene. In September 1996 both songs, Nance's Big Brother Is Watching You and the Twenty 4 Seven's We Are The World, were very popular in Holland.
January 1997 Twenty 4 Seven released a new song called If You Want My Love. The release of this track was delayed a couple of times because We Are The World suddenly did very well in many countries. In April 1997 the recordings of the new album were completed.
September 1997 A single called Friday Night was released. It contained remixes by Paradisio, Lipstick, Ruud Van Rijen himself and some other acts, followed by the new album called 24 Hours, 7 Days A Week. In October/November 1997 Stella left Twenty 4 Seven. She was just too busy with her dancing and modelling career and she couldn't combine it with Twenty 4 Seven.
January 23rd 1998, the new single of Twenty 4 Seven was released in the program 'Toute Fabienne' at TMF, a dutch TV-station. It was entitled If You Want My Love.
Together with other artists, Twenty 4 Seven took part to the yearly Veronica Austria winter tour, doing their act on the mobile stage of the Veronica truck. They also got free time to go skiing themselves, that's how Stay-C broke his ankle. But 5 weeks later he was on stage again. And soon after Twenty 4 Seven performed on the Radio538 Dance Smash party. And Stay-C was dancing like he hadn't broke this leg.
September 1999 : after 2 years of silence, they released their new single. Entitled Ne Ne, it featured Stay-C and was a real eurodance track. It was using the same sample taken from N.U.K.E.'s song Nana, already used by LA Style in their single I'm Raving and by Caater in their single Oh Si Ne Ne.
2000 : rumors said Nance had been asked to come back, in order to take part to the vocals of a forthcoming single, nothing less than I Can't Stand It 2000. But these rumors were wrong. A Best Of album was also planned for the next future but nothing was ever released.
2006 : Twenty 4 Seven appeared during a 90s dance party organized in Italy. But the performers on stage were not the real ones.
2007 : the new Twenty 4 Seven single was ready. Entitled Like Flames, it featured a new vocalist called Elle and covered a song first released 1987 by the band Berlin. A video was shot in Rotterdam during October, in which Ellen showed her talent as well as her beauty. The hectic life of showbusiness drove her back to her former job, away from the spotlights.
2010 : after 3 years of silence, Twenty 4 Seven is now a duet featuring 2 new female vocalists : Li-Ann and Miss Cherry. Li-Ann previoulsy release 2 solo singles entitled Friday and Pop The Cherry. They were about to release a new version of their hit Slave To The Music.
In September, Stay-C officially joined Twenty 4 Seven again while Miss Cherry left the project to focus on her carreer under her real name Sharon Doorson. Slave To The Music 2010 was re-recorded again.
Ruud and Stay-C declared that they were working on the follow-up single, which was planned for early 2011, and a brand new album that would follow shortly after. Stay-C and Li-Ann would be working 24/7 all around the world again. They started off in October in Latin America, where they had some very successful concerts, proving the everlasting popularity of Twenty 4 Seven.
2012 : Twenty 4 Seven's new single was entitled The Reason.
2016 : a 2k16 version of Slave to the Music was out on January 22nd.
2018 : Twenty 4 Seven featured in a TV commercial for Jeep Cars, GoPro and Hard Rock Hotel. Stay-C and Li-Ann are now officially a couple.

Late mi corazón (1999)
Twist was a teenage women Mexican group created in 1998. The members were Tabatha (formerly from the project Jeans), Natalia Lafourcade and Pamela, aged between 16 and 18. Pamela used to take part to the TV show "La hora de los chavos" on TV Azteca.
Their only, self-titled album was recorded in Spain, released under Sony Music Entertainment Mexico. This group was sponsored by TV Azteca, but it wasn't successful enough. For this reason the group finally dissolved after only one year. However they launched their best singles Late Mi Corazón and Hello, Hello. There were rumors that Natalia Lafourcade was not interested in dancing and singing on a group, she preferred doing a solo carrer, with guitar, and this is what she did afterwards : she is now a pop-rock singer.
2002 : Spanish singer and actress Elena Rivera made a cover of Hello, Hello under the name Bienvenida, and Dance under the name Locos Por El Ritmo on her album Locos Por El Ritmo, a dance album.
2005 : Mexican actress and singer Danna Paola covered Late Mi Corazón on her album Chiquita Pero Picosa.

Two Boys is a French and Belgian project. Samy Deep and Nicimo are the Two boys, and the executive producer is no one than Serge Ramaekers. In september 1992, a dance cover of Ph.D I Won't Let You Down by Jackie Moore was hitting the french club charts, reaching the top 5. Two Boys recorded their own version at the end of the year and it became as successful as the other one in the early 1993 ! The producer was Vito Lucente, S. Ramaekers did one of the remix... Then he became producer for the all the other singles.
Just Like Two Of Us was another cover (later covered again by Will Smith !). The success came back with the original track Don't You Know, reaching club charts in France and Belgium. The track Calling for Affection, reminding a lot Cappella's U Got 2 Let the Music, was first released in spring 1994 as a solo single of Samy Deep. Quick, the single was released again (exactly the same) under the name of Two Boys (probably for commercial reasons). It was a hit in Belgian club charts.

Samy Deep also released a track in 1993 under ARS Productions, called I Need You Baby, probably also a eurodance track. The vinyl included a 12' Mix, a 7' Mix, a 7' Remix and a 7' Instumental.
