Frank Hassas biography

Frank Hassas did studies in Kaufmännische Berufsfachschule Berlin. He started his artistical carreer as a break-dancer (under the scene name Mr. Atomic), then as a DJ (as 'Quickmix' and 'DJ King Of Rock'). In 1984 and 1985, O-Jay and him started to make "Freshline Radio Show" Tapes that they sold to shops and restaurants.

In 1987, still under the alias Quickmix he founded with O-Jay and The A (Aram Mouchegh) his first own hip hop band, Masterplan. They were the first German Hip Hop band to get a deal with Select Record Label (UTFO, Whistle). The first single was called We Wanna Be Stars but it was not very successful. The following year, Frank with O-jay and Karim Zouaoui (DJ Careem Da Dream) created the first German Hip Hop Electro Band, The Alliance. They sold 20000 units of the first single Action on the basis of self-distribution. The Alliance was one of Germanys most successful Hip Hop bands from 1988-1989. Records were released under Freshline Records, a label founded by Frank and O-Jay. They also worked on a project called The Admirers, releasing a cover of Joyce Sims' Come Into My Life.

At the same time he founded Fresh Beat Magazine, the first Hip Hop magazine in Germany, which was distributed by the World of music (WOM) chain. He also started his own radio show which also became a huge success.

In 1989, Frank and O-jay founded MC Sar & The Real McCoy. Their first singles (Pump Up The Jam Rap and It's on you) were massive successes Europewide and all went Top 10. They created the project Rap IV Rap (known for their cover of Soul II Soul's Keep On Movin').

1993 the next eurodance project was born : Maxx. Combining Club Sound with Ragga Vibes, the two initial singles Get a Way and No more went Top 10 all over Europe and reached Gold Status. Frank was credited as Dakota O'Neill.

In 1994, MC Sar & The Real McCoy was shortened into The Real McCoy, and got signed to BMG Germany and Arista Records USA. The Real McCoy had countless Top 5 Hits in the USA, UK, Japan and Europe and sold more than 8 million records worldwide. Their incredible success was honoured by dozens of Platinum and Gold awards, the MTV award, Billboard Award, a Grammy nomination as the most successful foreign Popact in the USA and the German Echo award. Frank was honoured by the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers for the Song Another Night, which stayed in the US Billboard Charts for almost one year.

Frank founded and leads Quickmix Entertainment Group. He also worked as an engineer for the duet of Mariah Carey and Joe and wrote/produced several songs for one of Germanys biggest actresses and singers, Yvonne Catterfeld.
