It began with two dj’s: Danski and Delmundo, throwing impromptu and illegal beach parties from their worn out school bus. While touring the Spanish coast and Ibiza between 1992 and 1997 they added f our dancers-cum-singers Roy, Denice, Kim and Robin to ‘spice up’ the DJ sets. Their growing reputation inspired them to take it a step further and start their own record label and produce records.
The Vengaboys’ first international hit “Up & Down” was released in March 1997 and quickly became a top 5 hit in Europe before making its way over to the U.S. Up & Down released on the legendary Strictly Rhythm label ruled the clubs from coast to coast and stormed to number one on the Billboard Dance Chart. Their debut album aptly titled “Greatest Hits!” reached gold status in the U.S. That same year they were nominated for MTV Best Breakthrough award.
