Jam & Spoon
Heralded among the pioneers of trance, the Frankfurt, Germany-based duo of producer Jam El Mar and Mark Spoon (aka Markus Loeffel) made an enormous impact in 1992 with their groundbreaking remix of the self-titled single by Age of Love. After the first Jam and Spoon EP, Tales from a Danceographic Ocean -- which contained their influential hit "Stella" -- the duo unleashed a barrage of remixed material for Moby ("Go"), Frankie Goes to Hollywood ("Relax"), Deep Forest and others, all to massive club play; the single "Right in the Night (Fall in Love with Music)" followed in 1993, the first of several of the duo's recordings to feature the American-born vocalist Plavka. That same year, Jam and Spoon issued their full-length debut LP, the two-volume Tripomatic Fairytales 2001 and 2002, which saw a move away from the pile-driving beats of earlier efforts towards a more commercial sound. In 1996, the duo returned with Disco 2001, an album recorded under the alias Tokyo Ghetto P**sy. Though the next Jam and Spoon LP (1997's Kaleidoscope) didn't cause much of a splash, a remix of "Stella" became a worldwide club hit in 1999. ~ Jason Ankeny, Rovi
