Biography MC Miker G and DJ Sven

Hip hop duo which had a major hit with its debut single in The Netherlands as well as in 45 other countries.

1986

Breakdancer and rapper MC Miker G (Lucien Witteveen) meets DJ Sven (Sven van Veen). They decide to record a demo called Holiday Rap, based on the Madonna song Holiday. In July the song is released through Dureco and it reaches the number one spot in 34 countries and the top 10 in twelve other countries. At the end of the year their second single Celebration Rap is released. It is less successful than the Holiday Rap, but still reaches the top 10 in over thirty countries and turns gold in The Netherlands.

The duo goes on an extensive tour of Iceland, Israel, Italy, France and Spain, but decides to split up for a while immediately after the tour. While DJ Sven continues working as a disc jockey, Miker G goes to New York to record his first solo album called I'm A B-Bone. The first single taken off the album, Don't Let The Music Stop, reaches the lower regions of the Dutch charts.

1988

The reunited duo records a new single with producer Quincy Lizer. And The Bite Goes On, however, doesn't even reach the charts. Miker G also records Nights Over New York, based on LL Cool J's I Need Love, which reaches number 15 in the Dutch charts.

1989

Miker G and DJ Sven work with Dutch rocker Peter Koelewijn which results in the fact that the latter's sixties hit Kom Van Dat Dak Af, becomes a hit record for the fourth time in its history.
