Remy you have another project Spic N Span. Can you tell more about it ?
Remy de Groot - « Well, I already produced and wrote many tracks with my brother Joery. We have our own studio so it is very easy for us to go into the studio and make music.

What do you think about music industry today and about the 90's revival ?
Remy de Groot - « It is totally different then in the past, in the 90’s illegal downloading was not a problem, nowadays it is a big issue and destroys the industry and makes it harder to get deals or budgets, which is a shame. I am very happy that there is such a big 90’s revival and Blog’s like yours, and this is just the beginning, merci! »

Why eurodance music was so huge in Europe and all over the world ?
Remy de Groot - « Probably because it was a new sound, lot’s of great vocals and a different vibe then today, now we experience a big crisis, maybe that is the reason want to go back and enjoy the feeling they had in the 90’s, 90’s Reloaded ;-) »

Interview de Blondi

Powell, Chris Cute, Mangoon, Savon, Solar Patrol, 2Vibez, Minage Boyz, Christophe Chantzis, Erik Van Spouwen, Ian Van Dahl, Shalamon Baskin, and many others.
