2 Unlimited is Dutch Eurodance group founded by Belgian producers Jean-Paul De Coster and Phil Wilde in 1991 in Amsterdam, Netherlands. Dutch rapper Ray Slijngaard and Dutch vocalist Anita Doth fronted the group from 1991 to 1996. During the five years of 2 Unlimited's worldwide mainstream success, the act scored a total of 16 chart hits, including "Get Ready for This", "Twilight Zone", "No Limit", and "Tribal Dance". They have sold 18 million records worldwide. Although they enjoyed less mainstream recognition in the United States, many of their songs have become popular themes at American sporting events, particularly in the NHL and the NBA.In April 1996, shortly after the release of the single "Jump for Joy", both Slijngaard and Doth announced that 2 Unlimited was over. They each went their separate ways before a final single "Spread Your Love" was released in June 1996.In the years after Ray and Anita left 2 Unlimited,producers De Coster and Wilde recruited two new singers, Romy van Ooijen (born 18 November 1971) and Marjon van Iwaarden (born 18 June 1974). Album II is unique because its the only album to feature Romy and Marjon as vocalists and was released in certain European territories.Release date: 25.May.1998(Soundsational Studios).

How 2 Unlimited was formed?

Jean-Paul De Coster and Phil Wilde met in their hometown of Antwerp, Belgium, and their first collaboration under the name of Bizz Nizz resulted in a single called "Don't Miss The Party Line" which entered the top 10 in the UK. The two then decided to continue to work together. Jean-Paul De Coster and Phil Wilde initially had created an instrumental track they called "Get Ready for This" and they decided that it needed some vocals.

De Coster quote: 

That 12-inch single became a club hit, and we invited Ray Slijngaard to have a go at it. We had worked with him on "Money Money", an unreleased single by Bizz Nizz. By September he returned the tape to us. To our surprise, he had also added the female vocals of a certain Anita Doth, a traffic warden from Amsterdam. He told us she was a good friend of his out of the city's nightlife. Ray discussed the possibility of forming a duo to front the project.
Pleased with the result that they agreed to work with them as a duo, and thus 2 Unlimited was born.
