About Dune

German techno-pop ensemble from M?nster Dune (named after the 1984 science fiction movie directed by David Lynch) comprised DJ Oliver Froning (born 1963), producer Jens Oettrich, and Bernd Burhoff (aka Plutone; born 1969). After issuing "Hardcore Vibes," and a cover of Rozalla's hit "Are You Ready to Fly," the threesome teamed up with singer Verena von Strenge (aka Verena) to start working on their self-titled debut album, featuring the hit "Can't Stop Raving." Expedici?n followed in 1996, as did a live album recorded in Rastatt, Germany, soon after. However, their breakthrough came after releasing Forever in 1997, a 16-track album recorded at London's Abbey Road studios consisting of a collection of covers, including Queen's "Who Wants to Live Forever," Prince's "Nothing Compares 2 U" (popularized by Sin?ad O'Connor in 1990), and Phil Collins' "Against All Odds." That same year Verena was replaced by singer Vanessa H?rster. ~ Drago Bonacich
