Black Box originally hailing from Italy brought the Italo-House piano sound into the mainstream. Unquestionably delivering one of the finest examples of 90’s pop music in history and in the process becoming one of the most important and influential pop dance bands in the UK at that time. Monopolising the airwaves during the late 80’s and early ‘90’s, alongside acts like Ace of Base, Dee-Lite, Culture Beat, C & C Music Factory, M People, Technotronic, all of whom were contemporaries and populated the musical landscape.
This new album ‘Dreamlanders’ pays homage to their outstanding 31 year career and revisits the classics in a more mature style, curated in a way that is reflective of the time, their maturity and how we now listen to music during a pandemic.
Every single song on the album set a president at the time including birthing the anthems ‘Ride On Time’, ‘Everybody Everybody’, ‘I Don’t Know Anybody Else’, ‘Open Your Eyes’, ‘Fantasy’, ‘Hold On’ and “Strike It Up“. Many of these songs were released as individual singles achieving significant success on radio airplay and dance charts across the world making Black Box a household name.
