Alice DJ made a name for themselves as an epic trance music outfit in 1999 when a group of Dutch young DJs and talented producers saw their free collaboration culminate into a project selling over one million albums and 5 million singles worldwide. The controversially titled album Who Needs Guitars Anyway? spawned no less than 5 international hits including Will I Ever (UK #7), The Lonely One (UK #16), Back in my Life (UK #4), Celebrate our Love (UK #17) and Better Off Alone (UK #2). Other countries where Alice DJ crushed the charts were Germany, France, South Africa, Australia, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Belgium, Netherlands, Spain, Portugal and Canada. In 2002 the energetic front woman Judy and the ‘behind the scene’ members of the group decided to call it quits. The hits of Alice DJ though never stopped being on-air and club classics. In 2013 it seemed like the dance scene was making a comeback because Alice DJ received a called from Shakira! She was working on her new album and wanted to record a new version Better off Alone. No less than one month later; David Guetta contacted the group requesting permission to include the “killer hook” from Better Off Alone. Resulting in another worldwide smash for David Guetta and renewed attention for Alice DJ. Alice DJ is back and performing around the globe with a new voice and face, Amsterdam DJ and singer Ilona. Still managed by the founding fathers of the group, and continuing to play their hits while creating soon-to-be-released, new music.
