As Brooklyn Bounce, producer/DJs Matthias "Double M" Menck and Dennis Bohn attained unexpected commercial success in the mid- to late '90s with the help of some theatrical vocalists: Alex, Ulrika, and Diablo. The two Hamburg natives had originally tasted success soon after first meeting in 1995. Their first chart hit, Boyz R Us' "Singin' in My Mind," hinted at what was to come. In 1997, the duo debuted as Brooklyn Bounce, an uncharacteristically visual dance act fronted by the aforementioned vocalists/dancers. "The Theme (Of Progressive Attack)" scaled the German dance charts as a club favorite before becoming a crossover hit for the group as well, finding success in France and Scandinavia as well as Germany. The single's success set the stage for Brooklyn Bounce's debut album, In the Beginning. Other hits and other albums followed, though the group struggled to adapt to the latest trends. ~ Jason Birchmeier
