Sneaky Sound System Emerges From Popular Australian Dance Scene - Articles Surfing

The dance scene in Australia is currently producing extremely talented, eclectic and unique groups that are taking the world by storm. While the dance scene is quite hot in Australia at the current time, it is largely a derivative of cultures that have found success overseas, before experiencing changes and finding a home in Australia. In the mid-1980s, raves and warehouse parties were all the rage in England. The culture finally made its way to Australia in 1988, where it served to influence the emerging Australian dance scene. Today, that scene is largely a mixture of techno warehouse parties that first became popular in Detroit as well as trance beach parties that emerged from Goa.

Over the years, the dance culture has certainly changed and emerged. A number of groups have emerged as a result, finding not only success in Australia but around the world as well. Today, one of the most successful bands to emerge in the last couple of years is Sneaky Sound System. At the current time, Sneaky Sound System is one of the most popular groups in the country. Their debut album has gone platinum twice over. At one time, the group had not one but four hit singles listed in the Top 50. Their Funky House Music tinged hit single 'I Love It' broke records when it remained on the charts for an astounding 70 weeks, more than any other group in history.

As if that were not enough, the group has garnered numerous awards and their shows are consistently sold out. Considering the critical acclaim and success that the group has achieved in just two short years, one might think that the bank had a huge recording company behind them, supporting their success. Not so. The group is completely independent. Unlike other groups, which are largely manufactured acts, Sneaky Sound System has managed to display achieve tremendous success in the world of pop, yet their background is indelibly linked to the dance scene that has rocked the country.

In fact, it is safe to say that Sneaky Sound System is the biggest and most successful band to emerge from the dance music scene of Australia. Unable to find anyone to support their efforts, the group self-released their own debut album. It proved to be a savvy move, considering the incredible success that one album has achieved for the group.

While one might never guess it today considering the sold out tickets and top of the chart hits, the group originally started as the result of a club night known as 'Sneaky Sundays.' The special night was hosted by DJ Black Angus and Mc Double D. They were able to quickly attract some extremely high-profile guests, which led to even further success. Their first house mix CD proved to be highly successful and it was not long before the duo began to work on their own independent tracks. After they recruited Connie Mitchell for vocals, their electro pop style tunes became practically irresistible.
