Here’s the tenth volume of the collection!!!
The tracks included are mixes or remixes from the original 12″ maxi-singles.
We have reached to the 10th volume of the colection and this volume we’re reviewing part of the smash hits of the “Euro-dance” music between 1994 and 1996… We’re almost to the top of the decade to finally reach in december the year 1999, but don’t be afraid, it won’t mean the end of the collection! we’ll continue backwards again to reach once more the year 1990!!!
In this volume we’ll find artists very well-known in the collection like Corona, Captain Hollywood, Fun Factory, Whigfield, Taleesa and G.E.M., but there is artist not included yet in the collection like the spanish projects Sensity World and Cherry Coke or the remixed spanish version of Rochelle, an american artist from US. Another new artist are Nightcrawlers, Sin With Sebastian and Jesse Lee Davis, that I’ll try to include in future volume his great smash hits.
Enjoy this new trip into the “time machine” of the 90’s and remember the magic sounds and rhythms!

The project’s debut single of Corona was “The Rhythm Of The Night” (Volume 5). It was released in Italy in December 1993 on The DWA record label, and became an instant hit. It stayed at number 1 on the Italian music chart for thirteen consecutive weeks. However, the song was not released elsewhere until the following year. Corona followed up its hit with the 1995 singles “Baby Baby” (In this Volume 10) and “Try Me Out”, which saw similar success…
From the album “The Afterparty” Captain Hollywood released the single “Over And Over” (In this Volume 10). The single only reached the top 45 in Germany, but it’s a typical nice dance track from 90’s!
Gina G (born Gina Mary Gardiner, 3 August 1970) is an Australian dance singer based in the United Kingdom. She achieved a number-one hit in the UK, Slovenia, Israel, Japan and China with her 1996 single “Ooh Aah… Just a Little Bit”. Gina G was a DJ in Melbourne and a singer in the Australian dance music group, Bass Culture. A track she co-wrote with the group, “Love the Life”, was a Top 20 hit in Australia in 1992. By 1995 she moved to UK, where she entered the A Song for Europe competition, which she won, thereby becoming the UK’s entry in the 1996 Eurovision Song Contest, with the song “Ooh Aah… Just a Little Bit”. The song was eighth at Eurovision and peaked at number-one on the UK Singles Chart. The song was also successful in the US, reaching #12 on the Billboard Hot 100, #3 on the Hot Dance Club Play, #13 on the Rhythmic Top 40, #5 on the Mainstream Top 40, #25 on the Adult Top 40 and #11 on the Hot Dance Music/Maxi-Singles Sales chart. The song was nominated for a Grammy in the Best Dance Recording category in 1998.
“Don’t Go Away” was another hit from Fun Factory. The track was produced by the Luis Rodriguez (Co-producer of Dieter Bohlen projects as Modern Talking, C.C. Catch, Blue System…) team in the Studio 33 in Hamburg (later moved to Mallorca in Spain). This track took part of his album Fun-Tastic (1995).
Whighfield rose to prominence when her single “Saturday Night” became the summer smash hit of 1994, thanks to extensive play in the clubs of the Mediterranean and the fact that it had a dance which many found easy to learn. It was also the single which prevented Wet Wet Wet from reaching a record-equalling 16th week at number 1 in the UK. She became the first ever non-UK or American artist to debut at No.1 in her first week in the UK Singles Chart. Her music was also very successful in Australia, Brazil, Venezuela, Canada, France, India, the Netherlands, the Nordic countries, The Philippines where it became a hugely popular and smash hit summer song of 1994 gaining a very decent cult status in recent years along with the songs of Ace of Base and Los del Río, and Spain during the 1995 Eurodance phenomenon. Her role in the Eurodance scene has been very significant and has played an important role in music coming from Italy and Scandinavia. Later singles include “Think of You” (in this volume 10), “Close To You”, “Last Christmas”, “Gimme Gimme” and “Sexy Eyes”. “Gimme Gimme” and “Sexy Eyes” reached #14 and #6 in Australia, respectively, and they were the only two significant charting hits in that country.Like the group Milli Vanilli, Whigfield was accused of not singing her own songs. This was because she did all her live performances lip synching (miming to a backing track). “Saturday Night” was produced by Larry Pignagnoli and Davide Riva, two Italian producers known for a variety of Eurodance projects, who usually worked with vocalists such as Daniela Galli (better known as Dhany), Annerley Gordon (aka Ann Lee) and Sandy Chambers. Another Pignagnoli project, Ally & Jo, featured a similar voice to Whigfield’s but different faces in the CD cover and led to the accusations. Sannie has performed live more recently, therefore proving her voice is her own.
Sensity World was a spanish production that in 1995 produced a cover from the 1980’s hit by New England “Get It Up” by DJ Victor Grafia. This cover was very popular in Spain on the dance-floor.
G.E.M. was an euro house act project from Italy and it was produced and formed by Germano Martucci, Enrico Buatti & Martina Parenti. The debut single was “I Feel You Tonight” and it was smash hit in 1994; later in 1995 they released another hit in the same style that was “I Wanna Fly”. As the first single this track had an spanish version too.
Cherry Coke was an spanish production wich took part of the promotion of the Cherry Coke (by the Coca-cola company) and it was a very popular dance hit in 1995.
The Nightcrawlers debut single “Living Inside a Dream” was not a success, but the 1992 dance song “Push the Feeling On” fared much better. In its original form the song reached #7 on the U.S. Hot Dance Club Play chart, and briefly crossed over to pop radio, peaking at #80 on the Billboard Hot 100, spending fifteen weeks on that chart. The original version of “Push The Feeling On” was then remixed by Mark Kinchen, an American producer, who totally reinvented the track. He stripped down the song to edited vocal samples, creating an unusual sounding track. Originally released as ‘The Dub Of Doom’ mix in 1992, MK’s remix was heavily played underground for a number of years in the UK, and reached #22 in the UK Singles Chart in October 1994 when commercially released. It was then re-released with new mixes in early 1995, making number 3, becoming Reid’s biggest hit in his homeland.
Sin with Sebastian is a moniker used by the German musician/singer/songwriter Sebastian Roth (born Neustadt an der Weinstraße) currently living and producing in Berlin, Germany. Sin With Sebastian came to prominence in 1995 with the Europe-wide hit, “Shut Up (and Sleep with Me)”, which made it up to #1 in Spain, Austria, Finland, and Mexico, and Top 10 in most European countries. In addition it reached #26 on the U.S. Billboard Hot Dance Club Play chart, #44 in the UK Singles Chart and #4 in Finland. The single and following album, Golden Boy, were co-produced by Inga Humpe and Sebastian Roth.
Eurodance artist born in Detroit, Michigan. Jesse Lee Davis apparently came to Germany in the mid 80’s with the US army just like a lot of other Eurodance artists (think Captain Hollywood, Captain Jack, etc.). His first single, “Get Up On This”, contained a sample of James Brown’s voice, and was produced by Avenue. It was released in 1991 under the BMG label, but was mostly unnoticed. His real debut single (and only hit) “Is This Love” (1992), written, composed and produced by the Prophecy team, quickly gained attention. Released under the Dance Pool label in Germany, it became a chart topper in Israel and in Canada (1993). “Round And Round”, the following single, repeated the success story in Israel, but was mostly ignored in Canada. In 1994 released a nice track tittled “Like A Flame” producced by Marc Z (another eurodance project from 90’s).
Rochelle released in 1995 “Holding onto Love” produced by 20 Fingers; the track was remixed by the Spanish remixers XTM (the brothers Xasqui and Toni Ten) and this remix was recorded in spanish “Lucharé por nuestro amor” (Included in this volume 10).
