Eiffel 65


Eiffel 65 Bio

Eiffel 65 are the legendary pop-dance group that helped catapult dance music into the mainstream.

Eiffel 65 is a Grammy-nominated Italian electronic dance three-piece group formed in the late 90s and best known for their international hit Blue (Da Ba Dee). It consists of Jeffery Jay (vocals and bass), Maury Lobina (keyboards and guitar) and Gabry Ponte (producer). Their other hit singles include Move Your Body and Too Much of Heaven, all of which appeared on their album Europop released in late 1999. The name “Eiffel” was chosen randomly by a computer program and the “65″ was scribbled onto their name on a demo by mistake; it was actually part of a phone number.

Eiffel 65 achieved considerable success in the US and Canada. Europop peaked in the top five on the Billboard 200, was at the top of the MuchMusic countdown, and sold over two million units. Blue (Da Ba Dee) peaked at #6 on the Billboard charts. No other Italian pop or dance group before or since has ever achieved such sales in the US.

After Europop came two more albums entitled Contact! and Eiffel 65 released on Logic Recordings in 2001 and Universal Records in 2003 respectively.

In 2009 Bliss Corporation began to promote work from older bands by subtitling music videos and releasing ‘unseen’ video footage from Eiffel 65. In June 2010 it was announced that Eiffel 65 would reunite once more for production of new recordings as well as touring. In July 2010 it was announced from the official site that the group would release a new single by the end of 2010, but it is still forthcoming.

Stay tuned for these boys, because 2012 is set to be the year for the ultimate 90s throwback.
