Biography

  • One of the most influential and best-selling dance-acts of the 90s, with over 15 million records sold worldwide return as a live outfit/ DJ Set for the first time ever.
    U96`story began in 1992, when their first single "Das Boot", which was only released as a Club version (no Radio Edit), topped the german and many other european charts and sold far more than 2 million copies.

The first album, also entitled "Das Boot" also reached Gold status and many of the following 12 singles reached a Top 10 position also.

Alex Christensen released 2 more singles on his own under the name U96, but they did not match the Record company`s expectations in sales. There was a long gap with no releases until the former Members, Producers and Songwriters of U96 Ingo Hauss and Hayo Lewerentz decided to bring the project back to life, this time as a full live act. They released an upfront EP called "The Dark Matter EP" with 6 tracks in 2016 and decided to return to their musical roots, which is Club orientated Dance Music.They did a few Test -Shows in Finland and Russia and now finished their brandnew album "Reboot" which will be released worldwide on June 29th 2018.
