THE INTERVIEW

 

by Tavi Meran

 

Raquel Gomez "is the voice" of many eurodance projects starting with Public Art, Two Heads, Intermission, Candy, Hysterie and closing with the biggest ones Garcia and C-Block. For sure she can be called one of the legend of eurodance.

Raquel Gomez

Who is Raquel Gomez ?

A female singer passionate about music.

 

What is music ?

Music is the language that everybody understands.

 

Does Raquel Gomez have "Sangre Cliente"?

'Sangre caliente !? :-) I have a spanish temper, if that's what you mean :-)

 

How did you start your music career ?

I started singing in a band, loved to be on stage... The next step was to record on studios, and writing songs.

 

Among the 90s period you borrow your voice, to so many projects, there is one in particular that you've been close, or dearest to you

I loved my first single "River" from Public Art and it was huge for me to work for Thorsten Fenslau on the top of his career releasing the Nr.1 Hit "Mr. Vain". I also enjoyed singing for the project "Two heads" the song called "Do you really want my love", "Jam and Spoon" on Stella 99, but also writing in Spanish and singing for "Garcia" was a lot of fun. :-)

 

Germany was one of the country who gave so many great projects to eurodance scene, and some that I keep in mind, and is dearest to me is Garcia, what can you tell me about this project ?

I loved to write and sing for this project, because it was in Spanish and English and I loved the positive vibe. It was a lot of fun writing with Rod (Fun Factory) and singing.

 

Another project that you've been involved was C-Block. "So Strung out" was a huge hit, and you continued the collaboration with them on their album General Population (for "My life" and "Everything's good"). Did you believe in "So strung out" ?

I believed, that it was a great song, but I didn't expect it to be such a huge success... :-) I was overwhelmed, when I heard, that it sold more than 250.000 records..:-)

 

Why didn't you appear in "So Strung Out" video ?

After singing " So strung out" I went to Toronto for two months. Meanwhile the song climbed the charts...! Being so far away the videoclip was made without me..! It was fate!
After this Hit I worked in several projects and enjoyed the diversity of the songs... I learned a lot working with different people in different studios. I guess that I was still looking for the right project for me

 

Who wrote those songs? ("So strung out", "My life" and "Everything's good")

I should google it...;-) One of the rappers I guess :-)

 

Didn't it bother you, being behind these projects ?

On one side yes, on the other side no. There were so many other things to do...

 

Raquel Gomez

 

Are you thinking of a comeback as Garcia ?

Never say never ;-)

 

Viva Germany has been a promoter of German Dance Music. Compared to the 90's period, is it harder nowadays to get to the top ?

Everything changed... Nobody buys records anymore and the record companies are replaced by the internet...

 

You are one of the legends of eurodance scene among : Kim Sanders, Alexandra Prince, Trixi Delgado , Balca Tösun, Samira Besic, Terri B! Are you thinking about collaborating with one of them, if is so, with whom ?

Thanks for calling me " one of the legends of Eurodance". I just love singing :-)
At the moment there is nothing planned, but life is full of surprises.. ;-)

 

What we can aspect from now on, from your part ?

Aspect the unexpected :-)

 

A message for eurodance fans ?

Thanks for being there :-)
