La Bouche

The language of music transcends political, religious and cultural boundaries. 

It is with this spirit that Lane McCray burst onto the international music scene in the mid and late 1990s 

with the late diva Melanie Thornton.  Having met in Frankfurt, Germany by a chance encounter, 

this powerhouse duo became known as La Bouche (French for ‘The mouth’) and conquered the dance music scene 

with landmark success, producing chart toping singles, peaking at number one in seven countries.  

The successful dynamic duo conquered the charts of the 1990s.  With more than 10-million records sold and the meticulously 

watchful eye of legendary music mogul Frank Farian, La Bouche earned numerous awards, 

including the German Grammy, the Echo, for Dance Song of the Year in 1995.

‘Be My Lover’ peaked at number 1 in Germany, Sweden and the USA, while also reaching the Top 10 in fourteen European countries. 

It went on to win the ASCAP award for the ‘Most Played Song in America,’ and sold 6 million copies worldwide.  

La Bouche went on to become one of the biggest Eurodance groups of the '90s, with a string of hits worldwide.  

The debut album ’Sweet Dreams’ was released in June, 1995, which went to number 13 in the U.S., 

featured two more hit single releases, ‘Fallin' in Love’ (a cover version of the 1975 Hamilton, Joe Frank & Reynolds song) and ‘I Love to Love.’

In 2001, Melanie Thornton passed in plane crash while promoting her solo career.  

Today, the original vocalist Sir Lane McCray carries the dream on.

The Album ‘Sweet Dreams’ went Top 10 in Australia, the singles ‘Sweet Dreams’ hit #8, ‘Be My Lover’ #2 & ‘I Love to Love’ #6.

Jenny Berggren from Ace of Base 

The Ace of Base story started in the early 90’s when the three Berggren siblings (Jonas, Malin and Jenny) formed the techno band Tech Noir.  

Next to their rehearsal room, Ulf Ekberg played in another band.  Soon, Jonas and Ulf hit it off, started to write and produce together 

and ‘Ace of Base’ as we know them for was formed.  

During the production of their first album the band got to know Denniz Pop, an ex-DJ who had enjoyed international chart success 

as a writer and producer for Dr Alban.  Denniz had listened to the demo of ‘All That She Wants’ in his car stereo every day going to work at Cheiron studios.  Denniz got involved in Ace of Base’s album that was the start for the international recognition of Cheiron and followed by successes like Backstreet Boys, Britney Spears, N’sync and Five.

Ace of Base’s very first single was ‘Wheel Of Fortune,’ followed by the major worldwide hit ‘All That She Wants.’ ‘The Sign’ and ‘Don’t Turn Around’ 

also became international hits.  The band first made it in Denmark, then the rest of Scandinavia, Germany, the rest of Europe 

and Asia before conquering The US and Canada.

In all, the debut album ‘Happy Nation’ (released as The Sign in the US) sold 25 million copies 

and remains in the Guinness book of records as the ‘Best-selling debut album ever.’ 

Achieving numerous awards such as 6 World Music Awards, 3 Billboard Awards, 3 America Music Awards, several different 

European Grammy Awards and two American Grammy nominations! To mention a few!

When beginning to write and record for the second album ‘The Bridge,’ the pressure was on and everybody wanted to have their say.  

Everyone realized that the phenomenal success of the debut would be impossible to repeat.  

With the help of hit singles like ‘Lucky Love,’ ‘Beautiful Life’ and ‘Never Gonna Say I’m Sorry’ and promotional trips around the world, 

the album ‘The Bridge’ sold 5 million copies, a number most musicians only dream of.  

Back in Sweden the band returned to the studio to write for the band’s third album ‘Flowers’ (released in the US and Japan as ‘Cruel Summer’).  

The first single was ‘Life Is A Flower,’ which was an immediate success.  It got an award for the ‘Most played song’ on European radio in 1998.  

The lyric was changed in America, where the song was called ‘Whenever You’re Near Me.’ 

The Bananarama cover ‘Cruel Summer’ became the title track of the American album, the single reaching the American top ten.  

Other hits included ‘Travel To Romantis’ and ‘Always Have, Always Will.’ 

Notable is the fact that three of the singles from ‘Flowers’ reached top ten in England, where the band have performed 

on the famous show ‘Top Of the Pops’ an astonishing 18 times!

Katrin from Black Box

One of the leading exponents of a wave of Italian house music that flourished on the dancefloors of the late 80s and early 90s, 

Black Box comprised three Italian studio musicians (Daniele Davoli, Mirko Limoni and Valerio Semplici), collectively known as Groove Groove Melody. 

Based in the Reggio Emilia area of northern Italy, the team made use of Katrin (Catherine Quinol) as a front woman for the black box project.

The team were established as one of the top production outfits in Italian dance music, churning out more than a dozen singles a year in their native country. Among these productions the British music industry spotted ‘Ride On Time.’ 

The single became the first of a series of Italian house records to crossover to the UK charts, staying at number 1 for six weeks in 1989, 

and becoming the best dance selling record of all time (still to this day).

The Groove Groove Melody team were also behind the production of Starlight's ‘Numero Uno’ reaching the 9th position in the UK Single Charts.

Under seven or more pseudonyms, they turned out numerous further records.

However, as Black Box, in April 1990, they released an album called ‘Dreamland’ which broke in the US charts as well 

as UK and the rest of the world, and featured the hit singles ‘I don't know anybody else,’ ‘Everybody everybody,’ ‘Strike It Up,’ and ‘Fantasy,’ 

a revamp of the Earth, Wind And Fire hit.

Ride On Time (#2 in Aus), Fantasy (#3 in Aus), I Don’t Know Anybody Else (Top 6 in Aus), Everybody, Everybody (Top 40 in Aus),

Strike It Up (Top 20 in Aus) - Album ‘DreamLand’ achieved Platinum status & went #1.
