Biography

The collaboration between the composer and rapper Erik Aresta and the female vocalist Barbara Hascakova began when they met in Erik’s previous group, Maduar (whose most famous hits are Do It, I Feel Good and Anjel). Their good music and Barbara’s beautiful voice immediately attracted attention of the audience. This brought a promising perspective for Maduar. However Erik and Barbara decided to leave Maduar and on March 4, 1995 they officially established a new formation: MC Erik & Barbara. Maduar, although without Erik & Barbara, kept its original name consisting of the first letters ofthe group’s members (Matyinko, Dulovic, Aresta).

MC Erik & Barbara signed a contract with Polygram for 3 albums by the end of 1997 and released their first single I’m Free with the bonus-track Anjel II as a B-side. The second single U Can’t Stop got to the highest positions in hitlists of several radio stations. In December 1995 MC Erik & Barbara took part in Bratislava Beat Mass in the Cathedral of St. Martin, Bratislava.

Finally, on September 4 the album U Can’t Stop was released. It made the list of bestsellers and also brought the next hits: a remake of Summer Nights from the musical movie Grease, and the only song in Slovak entitled Keď príde láska. The video of Summer Nights ‘95 was shot in Tunis. The song was very popular, especially in Estonia and Namibia. Save The Jungle, released February 1996, is the most unusual video they made. Erik and Barbara appear as very bored astronauts on their journey through deep space and time.

    Snad najkontroverznejsia slovenska kapela, v case slavy nemala konkurenciu, momentalne je to povazovane za odpad. Podla mna len Barbara doplatila na to, ze sa zaplietla s takym degešom.
