Biography Party Animals

Very successful happy hard core act by house producers Flamman & Abraxas.

1995

Gabbers Dennis, Evert, David and Paul (the only gabber with long hair) play a part in the video I Wanna Be A Hippy by Technohead. The Flamman and Abraxas remix of this song becomes a huge hit both in the Netherlands and abroad and the two producers decide to form Party Animals.

1996

De Party Animals ca. 1996 (Bron: fotocollectie Popinstituut, UvA Bijzondere Collecties) The singles Have You Ever Been Mellow?, Hava Naquila and Acquarius all shoot to the number one spot. The latter two are both taken from the album Good Vibrations, which enters the Top 10 of the album charts in August. The video that accompanies Acquarius receives two Thunderdome Awards, one for Best Happy Hardcore video and one for Best Happy Hardcore single. The Party Animals release the single Nazi Scum to put and end to the accusations that all gabbers are rightwing extremists.
