First, they launched Cascada. America's kids sang "Everytime We Touch", and everybody in the international clubscene soon knew those names - Yann "Yanou" Peifer and Manuel "Manian" Reuter. With the UK waiting for her third subsequent Top 5 album, the Cascada success story still goes on ....... One day in 2007, Manian & Yanou played around with the famouse "Samba De Janeiro" sample, and the next day Zooland Records signed the new project "R.I.O." and their first single "De Janeiro" which became a massive club hit everywhere..... In Summer 2008, the whole club world celebrated "Shine On" and "When The Sun Comes Down", having "R.I.O." top almost every dance chart on this planet - Yanou & Manian had done it again! Summer's gone, but the song's still in high demand all over the world. Now, it looks as though "R.I.O." has become more then just a project, with an enormous fansbase on the internet asking for R.I.O. news..... Small wonder that the amazingly talented vocalist Tony T - who you all know from the great "Shine On" video - has hardly had a free minute ever since, performing live in clubs all over Europe, and it looks like that won't change any time soon!.... After The Love - May 2009.. After "Shine On" and "When The Sun Comes Down" have become huge radio and club anthems all over di world ;-), nearly everybody knows about R.I.O. and what they stand for. Small wonder that their new single "After The Love", which takes its rhythmical structure out of the "Pachanga", was desperately awaited by DJ's and fans. Tony T, the charismatic singer, once again lends his voice for this highly summer flavoured tune and continues his live tour around the globe. Smashin' remixes as well as a stunning video complete the package. No doubt: R.I.O. did it again..... New single "Serenade" coming November 2009..... Taken from the forthcoming R.I.O. album "SHINE ON"
