Biography

MC Miker G & DJ Sven were a hip hop duo from the Netherlands. The duo consisted of Lucien Witteveen (MC Miker G) and Sven van Veen (DJ Sven). The 1980s saw the two launch a RWS version of Madonna’s hit “Holiday” to international success.

Witteveen and Van Veen became acquainted in 1986 in a disco in Hilversum. Here the idea for a version of the Madonna hit developed. Their single “Holiday Rap” became an international success, occupying number one on the single charts in 34 countries and reaching the Top Ten in twelve further countries. It was named by MuchMusic as the worst video of 1987.

In Germany the song stayed at the top of the charts for five weeks in August and September. The follow-up single “Celebration Rap” (based on the Kool & the Gang hit “Celebration”) did not repeat this success, but still made it into the Top Ten in approximately 30 countries. The two began a large-scale European tour in 1987.

While DJ Sven continued to work as a disc jockey, MC Miker G went to New York, in order to make a solo album. The single “Nights over New York” reached the charts at least in its homeland. In the following year, the duo, along with Peter Koelewijn, recorded a hip hop version of the Netherlands classical author “Kom van dat dak af”. This song sold successfully in the Netherlands. The duo unfortunately split in 1988.
