Ian Van Dahl
Ian Van Dahl
Belgian trance/house act created by Christophe Steve Fotini Chantzis and Erik Jos Vanspauwen.

In 2001, Ian van Dahl gained attention in Europe with their debut single "Castles in the Sky", featuring vocals by Martine Theeuwen. The follow-up single "Will I?" saw the group fronted by singer Annemie Coenen. They teamed up to give the project a more 'permanent' look. The group's debut album "Ace" was released in 2002.

Peter Luts and David Vervoort later joined the team to create "Lost & Found", the group's second album. Christophe and Erik left the record label, A&S Productions, to start their own production company after this release. Shortly after, Annemie Coenen and Peter Luts also left A&S Productions. They started a new project called AnnaGrace.

Hailing from Oldham, UK, N-Trance are producing duo Dale Longworth and Kevin O'Toole.
Formed way back in 1990, the two former sound engineering students’ first production was a dance version of the TV theme to 'Roobarb'. 'Back To The Bass' soon followed. It was so well received that Pete Waterman signed it up to his 380 Records label.
Next up was the song that has captured the hearts of millions worldwide: 'Set You Free'. Drafting in college student Kelly Llorenna on vocals, the track did so well on white label that 380 set a release date. This however never came off and N-Trance departed from the label.
In 1992, they signed to All Around The World, a label that is still their home. 'Set You Free' was finally released but managed to miss the top 75 in the official UK chart. However, due to severe demand, it was re-released and scraped a top 40 position. This was followed up with 'Turn Up The Power' and another re-release of 'Set You Free' - this time, the now classic track reached number 2 and cemented its place in history.
Since then, the duo have released numerous tracks: 'Stayin’ Alive' (which heavily sampled the Bee Gees title) (UK #2, #1 in Australia), 'Electronic Pleasure' and 'D.I.S.C.O.' (UK #11s), 'The Mind Of The Machine' (#15), 'Da Ya Think I'm Sexy?' (which sampled Rod Stewart) (#7), 'Paradise City' (#28), 'Tears In The Rain' (#53) and ‘Shake Ya Body’ (#37).
They weren't finished there however. In 2001, a fourth release of 'Set You Free', aided by a remix from Rob Searle, gave them their fourth top-ten hit, reaching a peak of number four. Up as far as 2004, they have released a single annually since. UK #6 'Forever' came in 2002, 'Destiny' (#37) in 2003 and finally 'I'm In Heaven' in 2004, which reached a lowly 46.
Add to this the numerous remixes they have done, ranging from Divine Inspiration to Scooter, Trinity-X to Ultrabeat, the duo never seem to stop.
Armed with former Q-Tex singer Gillian Tennant and with previous collaborations including T-1K, Rachel McFarlane, Steven Berkoff, and Ricardo Da Force, N-Trance continued to entertain for a while. In 2005, they embarked on their new project: Freeloaders (2).
