Biography

There are 4 artists with the name “OFF”:

1) OFF was an Eurodisco-project founded in 1986 by Sven Väth, and also Michael Münzing and Luca Anzilotti (who both became very famous as SNAP!). In the same year they produced the debut single “Bad News”. That year the second single “Electrica Salsa” was released. This song was very successful in the charts in Germany, Austria, France and Italy. Suddenly, Sven Väth was a pop star. Electrica Salsa was immediately marketed internationally and released on different labels.

Also in 1986 the project “16 Bit” 16 BIT was started by Michael Münzing and Luca Anzilotti. The songs “Where are you?” and “Changing Minds”, with the voice of Sven Väth were succesful in the charts. In 1987 the singles Step By Step, Harry … Aber Jetzt and Timeoperator were released, but none of these reached the success of Electrica Salsa. In November 1987 the first OFF album appears: “Organisation For Fun”. In England this album is quite successful, but goes unnoticed in Germany. In the end of 1988 the next OFF-Single “La Casa Latina” is released, an attempt to bring the populair Acid-bandwagon to Germany - it is also the last production involving Sven Väth, Michael Münzing and Luca Anzilotti. In 1989 the success of the Acid-sound fades quicky and more ambient House-sounds are popular. Sven Väth ends the cooperation with Michael Münzing and Luca Anzilotti. Together with Matthias Hoffmann he produces the second and last OFF-Album “Ask Yourself”. From this album, only the track “Move Your Body” has some success. Halfway 1990, Sven Väth ends the story of OFF.
