Germany really had the power to deliver quality eurodance bands. Fun Factory is for sure one of them and their song Take Your Chance is one that made the world crazy after them in the 90’s. This eurodance band from Hamburg, Germany delivered humongous of popular dance tracks that whole of Europe or even the world loved. This is what we can call quality Eurodance yet very refreshing Eurodance. Lovely tune!
Dance and Rap combined created Fun Factory image
In 1992, Fun Factory was formed in Hamburg, Germany. Originally consisting of founding members Balca Tözün, Rodney Hardison, Toni Cottura and Stephan Browarczyk. They have been nicknamed simply Balja, Rod D., Smooth T. and Steve. The group enjoyed a humongous success throughout the 90s because of their mix between dance and rap in all of their songs. Some slower than others, but all in all a pure eurodance band for sure.
As with many other eurodance bands. Fun Factory didn’t manged to stay total all the years. Even though now they are still active in Germany. They had quite a break from 1997 to 2009 and then from 2013 until now they are still active although the singers have changed.
Backstreet Boys used Fun Factory Rap in their Get Down song
In the song Get Down by Backstreet Boys , about 1:33 into the song you notice the Fun Factory rap pretty well. Their songs brings a lot of childhood memories for people as well. Fun Factory had a huge influence on the music industry in the 90’s for sure.
Now they are still active also.
On 7th of August 2015 they released a new single which is named Let’s get crunk
On 15th of July 2016 they also released another single called Turn it up
They also released a third studio album called Back To The Factory on 5th of August 2016. So, they are pretty active. Fun Factory manages to make uplifting music again and its following their path even though many dislikes the new style. But we think this is easy listening music, but they should for sure try to follow some of their big hits. But then again, their hits from the 90’s should stay as they are. It’s really fun seeing these German eurodance bands not giving up at all. Keep it movin!
