I've been meaning to do a thread like this for ages as I'm a proper stan for these two! dance.gif

Ray Slijngaard and Anita Doth, better known as 2 Unlimited, were/are the Dutch Eurodance duo that set the charts alive in the early 90s with their quirky and energetic take on dance music.

PWL signed them to be released in the UK but it was thought Ray's raps would be unpopular with our ears so edited him out on the majority of their singles (although they did have a change of heart a couple of years down the line).

Between 1991 and 1995, they achieved a string of hits, including 12 Top 20 singles (we'll brush over 1998's new line-up flop though because that was awful).

They did disband in 1996 (a new line-up took over between 1998-1999) but came back together in 2012 to release a greatest hits album and tour. In early 2016, Anita announced her departure again and she has since been replaced by Kim Vergouwen.

Take a listen below and relive some great tracks and memories and leave a comment if you will.

Really like this sort of uplifting dance music. dance.gif I actually prefer their stuff to a lot of other early 90s dance music tbh....so energetic.

Their style of dance definitely inspired many later dance songs even as late as early 2006 when there was a sort of mini revival of this style of dance.

Indeed, I thought 'No Limit' was a one hit wonder until recently, the rest of their discography is great too!

Loved 2 Unlimited! Kind of incredible how successful they were for a dance act - All 14 singles made the Top 40 including 8 Top 10's plus 2 #1 albums!
