2 UNLIMITED – No Limit
NEW YORK (RichTVX.com) — Listen to the latest episodes of Dance Sounds of the 90s on Rich TVX News Network. “No Limit” is a song recorded by Belgian/Dutch Eurodance group 2 Unlimited in 1993. It was their fifth single in total and the first to be released from their second album, No Limits! (1993). The song is one of their most commercially successful singles, especially in Europe, reaching the number-one spot in at least 13 countries and the top 10 in several others. Like previous releases, the UK version of the single removed all of the raps from Ray Slijngaard, leaving just Anita Dels‘ vocals. One word from the rap was kept, the word ‘Techno’ (from the line “I’m making techno and I am proud”) which was looped and repeated during the middle of the song, turning the line into “Techno! Techno! Techno! Techno!” and giving the song an extra vocal hook.
2 Unlimited are a Belgian/Dutch dance music act, founded by Belgian producers/songwriters Jean-Paul De Coster and Phil Wilde in 1991 in Antwerp, Belgium. From 1991 to 1996, Dutch rapper Ray Slijngaard and Dutch vocalist Anita Doth fronted the act. During these five years, 2 Unlimited enjoyed worldwide mainstream success. They scored a total of sixteen international chart hits, including “Get Ready for This“, “Twilight Zone“, “No Limit“, and “Tribal Dance“. The act has sold eighteen million records worldwide. Although they enjoyed less mainstream recognition in the United States, several of their tracks became popular themes in American sporting series, mainly in the NBA and NHL.
