The story behind "Dance 2 Trance - Power Of American Natives" by Jam El Mar [Interview]

Dance 2 Trance was a project from Rolf Ellmer a.k.a. Jam El Mar, together with Dag Lerner a.k.a. DJ Dag. In the year 1990 the very first ever Dance 2 Trance record got released; a 2 track vinyl with the song “Dance 2 Trance” on side A and “We Came In Peace” on side B.

The big commercial break-through for Dance 2 Trance came 2 years later, with their track “Power Of American Natives” for which they worked together with singer Linda Rocco. It became a Top 10 hit in countries such as Germany, The Netherlands, Finland, Norway and Austria.

For this week’s vlog I sat down with Jam El Mar in his studio, to ask a him about the story behind “Power Of American Natives” and more.

Enjoy and thanks for watching!

That was amazing! I managed to catch it live before my show by pure luck and I played the song in it. It's been a while since I listened it, also I loved hearing his side on how these days you produce to please certain fans but might alienate others. I love insights like this...
