As usual, DJ Quicksilver got a lot of inspiration from his permanent appearances in clubs all over the planet, where he experiences and decisively creates new trends. The second album “ESCAPE 2 PLANET LOVE”, released in November 1998, again features music, which contains a constant development to pop music, but still is best for use in clubs. Once again they couldnt decide which of the strong album-tracks should be the new single in Germany, therefore the roundtrip started with the Double-A-Side “ESCAPE TO PARADISE/TIMERIDER”, which had a chart-entry at position number 31 in the German sales charts.
At the same time another DJ Quicksilver-side-project entered the charts and instantly went to the top 20 of the German sales charts: The DJ Quicksilver Remix of WATERGATE´S “MULL OF KINTYRE (THE BATTLE MIX)” and the following hits as “Maid Of Orleans” and “Heart Of Asia” (in UK # 3) made dancefloors vibrate in direct competition to his single “COSMOPHOBIA”.
“COSMOPHOBIA” contains excerpts from H. G. Wells well-known novel “War Of The Worlds”. Orhan Terzi and Tommaso De Donatis succeed once again in producing clubmusic at a high standard. In the sound transformation of this famous example both producers used recordings with the original voice of Richard Burton. The song reached top positions in all German dance charts and placed in German top 40.
The single “AMENO” of the successful team Terzi/De Donatis had quickly become a club hit in traditional Quicksilver manner and reached a Top Ten position in all German dance charts. DJ Quicksilver used for this production a sample of the platinum single “AMENO” of the international successful group ERA. The DJ Quicksilver mystical Trance-Techno-Mix of “AMENO” entered straight the top 20 of the German sales charts and became also an international hit.
After his great success with “AMENO” DJ Quicksilver presented his single “BOOMBASTIC”. In 1995 SHAGGY entered the charts all over the world with this mega hit – well-known from the Levi’s TV-spot – and had his final break-through in the United States, his adopted country.
“DJ QUICKSILVER meets SHAGGY” – the current most successful artist worldwide! A sensational combination which let the crowd party and made not only the dancefloor move. With this production DJ Quicksilver proved his skills once again. The vinyl “BOOMBASTIC” was listed in all German dance charts at Top Ten positions. Its pushing beats and the concise refrain made sure that the single entered the charts directly on #27. In the amusing “BOOMBASTIC”-video “the real Mr. Lover” – Superstar SHAGGY – and DJ Quicksilver are playing an important part. Volker Hannwacker finished the costly shooting in Munich, Salzburg and London within three days.
In March 2002 DJ Quicksilver was honored by an ECHO-nomination in the category “Best National Dance-Act” for his hit “Ameno”. With his DJ Quicksilver Remix Orhan Terzi supported the new project BASE UNIQUE, which has created a brilliant remake of the Elvis and Pet Shop Boys hit “Always On My Mind”. Beside DJ Quicksilver’s version, the track is also ennobled by the ACCESS Remix of the SAFRI DUO producers. For everybody who longed for a new DJ Quicksilver production the track “New Life” were released on vinyl on November 2002. Refreshing! Although there is still a trend to produce cover-versions or remakes of the 80’s, DJ Quicksilvers new track is completely written by himself – back to the roots! Of course this new DJ Quicksilver single entered directly after its release the German sales charts and the amazing Video was played in all important music channels.
