Masterboy — German Eurodance group highly popular in the 1990’s.
The band’s story began in 1989 when the musician Enrico Zabler met DJ Tommy Schleh. They decided to form a joint dance project and called it Masterboy. In 1990, the musicians released their first single "Dance To The Beat", which suddenly became a huge hit.
By the time summer came, the song entered German charts. On the national chart, the track climbed to the 26th spot and stayed there for 16 weeks. For a debut single, it was an overwhelming success. Many fans dreamed of booking Masterboy for their private events.
Soon Zabler and Schleh were joined by Mendy Lee and David Atterberry. The band started going on different tours and acquiring more and more fans. In December, they released the second single, "Shake Up And Dance", which also became a hit. The track reached the 32nd place on German music charts.
In 1991, the band released their first album, The Masterboy Family. At about the same time, the famous British band Pet Shop Boys offered to work with Masterboy and re-release their hit song "Shake Up And Dance" on the UK label. The group agreed.
