In 1980 Roberto Zanetti started his career as a composer writing songs in collaboration with Zucchero Fornaciari. In 1983 Roberto composed and produced the first 'dance' record, entitled Don’t Cry Tonight, sung by himself under the stage name 'Savage'.

The song became a great success first in Italy, then in the rest of Europe. After some years spent touring around the world, Roberto decided to step up his activity as a producer by buying recording studios (Casablanca recordings) first, and subsequently establishing his own record label (DWA Records).

This was in 1989 and the first record released was No Lo Hago Por Dinero by Raimunda Navarro, which became a club hit in Italy and England. the same year saw the first world-wide success under the DWA label: it was the single Easy by Ice MC. this song was followed by two other singles, Cinema and Scream, and the first album entitled Cinema.

Both the singles and the album met with outstanding success all over the world, and Ice MC became known everywhere. Between 1990 and 1991, DWA continued to release singles by new artists, among which the most important were: Pianonegro, Wareband feat. Tad Robinson, Scattt, Willy Morales. In 1992, the period of great world successes began. The first hit was Please don’t go by Double You, that launched the 'Covermania' phenomenon throughout the world. First, the song was released in Italy; then an English record label (known as Network) applied for the licence to release it in the UK. The answer from DWA was negative, because the song was already under licence to another company in that country, so network made a copy of Please Don’t Go, sung by the English group KWS. the copy came out before the Double You version and went to the top of the English and American charts, but Double You triumphed in the rest of the world selling more than four million copies.

Later, DWA won a court case against Network, who were ordered to pay damages. in the following years, DWA devoted itself to the Double You project, releasing new singles (We All Need Love and Who’s Fooling Who) and the first album (We All Need Love). among the few records made in this period, were those by Netzwerk, DJ Bobo, CB Milton.

Soon after, a new single by Ice MC, with the title Take Away The Colour, was released. The song didn’t have big sales, but it prepared the ground for the future production of the artist and it set the Eurodance fashion throughout Europe. Shortly afterwards, two other singles by Ice MC, Think About The Way and It’s A Rainy Day, were released. These two songs, together with the album Ice n’green, were to consolidate the artist’s fame all over the world. the album sold about 800.000 copies in Europe (250.000 in France alone), whereas the singles totalled more than two million copies. One of the singles was also to be part of the sound-track of the cult movie 'Trainspotting'.

At the end of 1993, the single The Rhythm Of The Night by Corona was released. in only two years, the artist was to sell about four million copies all over the world, reaching even the American top ten. In 1995 the singles by Double You Dancing With An Angel andBecause I’m Loving You were released, together with a special album created for only the Brazilian market. It sold more than 100.000 copies in that country.

For the whole of 1996, Double You were on tour in Brazil, performing more than 50 shows in various concert-halls. After this period of incredible successes, the manager of the label considered that it was time to reorganise the whole structure, so he gave orders to build new offices and recording studios.

But feelings among the artists were changing. in fact, some of them started to create problems, deteriorating the relationship based on friendship and co-operation that had been the key of DWA’s success since the beginning. so, in 1996, the company took a rest period to reorganise its own artistic staff, employing new people and renouncing to certain collaborations.

Among various changes, were the legal case against the rapper of the Ice MC project and the abandonment of the Corona project on the part of the DWA label. During 1996 very few singles were released, but, among them, we have to draw attention to those by Alexia. This artist held a good three consecutive first positions in the Italian charts and met with outstanding success all over Europe.

At the end of 1996, the recording of a new album by Alexia began, with a release date of spring 1997, together with a single and a videoclip. The song Uh la la la was a really great hit all over Europe and top ten quite everywhere, while the album Fan club was a really big seller in some territories. In Finland it sold more than 90.000 copies, in Brazil more than 160.000, while in Poland it sold 100.000 copies. At the beginning of 1998 the Fan Club project was still working and Uh La La La is entering the UK charts, while Number one was really strong in USA. The whole DWA record was working hard with Alexia : a new single and video, titled Gimme Love, was released at the end of March, while the new album was ready at the end of may. This new project was licensed to Sony for the whole world. No other projects had been scheduled to be released before summer 1998.
