The group consists of Norwegian-born Lene Nystrøm (Lead vocal/Lyricist), René Dif (Lead vocal/Rap/Lyricist) and Søren Rasted (Keyboards/Programming/Songwriter/Producer).
AQUA are known best for their pop formula which produced highly infectious hit singles like ‘Barbie Girl’, ‘Roses Are Red’, ‘My Oh My’, ‘Doctor Jones’, ‘Lollipop (Candyman)’ and ‘Turn Back Time’.
Since these 90s mega hits, singles like ‘Cartoon Heroes’, ‘Around The World’, ‘We Belong To The Sea’ “Goodmorning Sunshine”and ‘Freaky Friday’ continue to capture the imagination of their huge worldwide fanbase.
Prozzäk arrived on the scene in 1998, and a Canadian musical phenomenon was born. The animated duo Simon and Milo was the brainchild of Jay Levine and James Bryan McCollum, two members of the critically acclaimed multi-platinum act The Philosopher Kings.
Prozzak’s debut “Hotshow” went 4 times platinum (400,000), producing chart topping videos, including 2 MuchMusic number ones (“Sucks to be you”, and “Strange Disease”), as well as being nominated for 5 Juno awards. Prozzäk also made an impact internationally, in the US, where the video for “Sucks to be you” charted on MTV2, and had top 40 hits in Spain (“Hotshow”), and Turkey (“Strange Disease”).
In 2000, Prozzäk released their second album, “Saturday People”, which also went platinum and was nominated for a Juno award for best pop album.
In 2017, the duo released “Forever 1999”, their first studio album in over a decade. Their fans embraced new songs like “Love Me Tinder” and “Love Fools Anonymous”. Prozzak performed for nearly 10,000 fans on their Canadian tour from Ottawa to Victoria later that year.
Sannie Carlson, better known by her infamous stage name Whigfield, is internationally celebrated for her catalogue of euro pop hits that have sold millions of records worldwide.
In 1994 she gained a place in the Guinness Book of Records with the song ‘Saturday Night’ as the first artist to go straight to number one in the UK singles chart with a debut single.
Her debut album Whigfield 1 went Gold in Canada, Philippines, India and Platinum in South Africa, featuring hits ‘Another Day’, ‘Think of You’ and ‘Big Time’.
