DJ BoBo, Sofia (2018)

DJ Bobo (* 5. January 1968 as René Peter Baumann in Kölliken , canton Aargau ) is a Swiss singer , rapper , dancer , composer and music producer .

From the so-called Eurodance time, DJ BoBo is one of the few artists who still successfully release albums. That is why he is also called the “ King of Dance ” by fans , although recently he has been incorporating more elements from pop and rock into his songs. DJ BoBo became known with a mixture of pop and dance floor .

DJ BoBo (2008)


Beginnings as a disk jockey and first singles

According to his own account, he discovered his passion for music in the 1980s and in 1985 became involved as a disk jockey (DJ) in the Tuchlaube youth center in Aarau . The stage name BoBo was his graffiti tag and nickname back then. According to his own statement, the name is an allusion to the Franco-Belgian comic figure Bobo, the escape king (spelling "BoBo" and "BOBO") by Paul Deliège and Maurice Rosy . In an interview, he stated that there were considerations to change the name. At the same time, the musician Prince changed his name, so DJ BoBo decided to wait for his experience. After Prince's change came with complications, DJ BoBo decided not to change his name. A year later Baumann achieved second place in the Swiss DJ championships. One of his other passions was breakdancing , where he met his manager Oliver Imfeld in a disco, who is pursuing a political career in the right-wing national SVP , referring to his managerial success . In the following years DJ BoBo worked as a professional DJ in the Don Paco and Hazyland discos.

During this time he was offered the opportunity to produce his own CD single. In early 1990 his first single I Love You was released . The female voice in the song was sung by the later Swiss TV presenter Sandra Studer . Two more singles - Ladies in the House and Let's Groove on - came out in 1991. In the meantime, DJ BoBo worked as a resident DJ at the Oxa disco in Zurich and occasionally had a few appearances with his songs in other discos. Even then, Kurt “Curtis” Burger (* February 3, 1971) and Daniel “Dani” Burkart (* February 20, 1971) were dancers who are still part of DJ BoBo's permanent dance crew and are involved in the planning of every tour; Burger as the choreographer and Burkart as the person responsible for the graphics and the stage design.

1992-1994: Somebody Dance with Me

The next single Somebody Dance with Me was created for the first time in a professional recording studio together with the experienced Hamburg producer Axel Behre , who wrote or co-produced songs until 2009. When it was played for the first time in October 1992 in the OXA discotheque, the song was very well received. On January 10, 1993, the song entered the official Swiss charts at number 36 , and on March 14, 1993 it reached number one . The appearances in other discotheques in Switzerland increased, the DJ BoBo completed together with Curtis, Dani and the singer Emel .

The German record company EAMS brought the song to Germany, where it entered the German charts at number 32 on June 8, 1993 . The interest in DJ BoBo increased, so that he was repeatedly a topic in magazines such as Bravo or Popcorn .

In the summer of 1993, the US singer Rockwell's record company filed a lawsuit that the chorus of Somebody Dance with Me was a plagiarism of the song Somebody's Watching Me . A settlement was agreed out of court.

In the fall of 1993, the first album Dance With Me was released , which was produced in around 200 hours of work together with Axel Behre. In addition to Somebody Dance with Me, it includes the successful songs Keep On Dancing! , Take Control and Everybody , one of the summer hits from 1994. Gutze Gautschi and Mark Wyss from the record company Fresh Music were also involved in the production.

DJ BoBo took his first major tour together with the biggest Eurodance stars of the time, such as Haddaway and Culture Beat, on the “Mega Dance Festival” tour across Germany. At these concerts René Baumann met his wife Nancy Rentzsch (born November 23, 1970), who was still a singer with Haddaway at the time and was involved in the 3-o-matic music project .

1994-1996: There Is a Party & Just for You

The second album There Is a Party followed in autumn 1994 with the first single Let the Dream Come True and the other single hits Love Is All Around , There Is a Party and Freedom . In autumn 1995 DJ BoBo went on tour in Europe for the first time with his own stage show and played in halls with 2,000 to 4,000 seats. Backstreet Boys , who were still unknown at the time, were the opening act .

Almost simultaneously with the tour, DJ BoBo released the third album Just for You in autumn 1995 . In addition to some remixes of well-known songs, the first ballad Love Is the Price was included, which was released as a single and featured in Wetten, dass ..? Edition of January 14, 1996 was presented.

In September 1996 DJ BoBo appeared in the opening act of Michael Jackson's HIStory World Tour at concerts in Prague, Budapest, Bucharest, Moscow and Warsaw, some of which were held in front of 150,000 spectators.

1996–1997: World in Motion

In October 1996, DJ BoBo released the fourth album World in Motion , which featured the single hits Pray (the main theme of which is cancerously related to the chorus from Freedom ), Respect Yourself , It's My Life and the Shadows recorded with the VSOP ( Vienna Symphonic Orchestra Project ) of the night . 300,000 copies of the album were equipped with a three-dimensional cover, which was recorded by the Cologne 3-D photographer Igor Tillmann in the Egyptian Museum in Berlin with special 3-D camera technology.

Due to some differences, DJ BoBo separated from his record company Fresh Music in the run-up to the World-in-Motion CD and founded his own company Yes Music AG. Gutze Gautschi and Mark Wyss have tried since then with various publications (new editions of Dance with Me or the book The Forgotten Years ) to cast the career or success of DJ BoBo in a bad light.

The world-in-motion tour started in autumn 1996 with four semi-trailers, a 50-person crew and was supported by the then unknown boy band * NSYNC around Justin Timberlake .

Since 1982, when the Swiss hard rock band Krokus performed in the Hallenstadion , no Swiss musician had managed to fill the hall completely. DJ BoBo managed to do this on October 20, 1996. Since then, the Hallenstadion Zurich has been a concert venue on every tour.

1998-1999: Magic

The fifth album Magic followed in April 1998 and included the singles Where Is Your Love and Around the World . The “Magic” tour followed in autumn 1998 with a castle-like stage structure and a 15-meter-long catwalk that led into the audience. In the autumn of 1998 a tour edition CD from Magic followed and contained the new single "Celebrate" . In March 1999, - The Ultimate Megamix '99, a mix album was released that contained 20 hits in a single mix. In June 1999 there was a Magic Open Air tour of five locations.

1999-2000: Level 6 & Mystasia

While they were still on the open air tour, they worked on the next album, which was released in October 1999 under the name Level 6 . The singles from it were called Together and the ballad Lies . For the first time, DJ BoBo also worked with other producers. He recorded three songs ( Last Day of 1999 , Best of My Life and Nightfly) in Gothenburg with Jonas Berggren from Ace of Base . Nightfly was originally supposed to be the first single from Level 6 according to the wishes of the record company, which BoBo vetoed. Nightfly was banned from the final track list of Level 6 and only released in 2002 on the bonus disc of the Celebration album. The Mystasia tour started with five different sets in December 1999.

2001: Planet Colors

Preparations for this album began in May 2000 when fans were asked on their website which successful song from the 1980s should be on the new album. The selected song was called What a Feeling and was recorded with Irene Cara . DJ BoBo and Irene Cara put the song on Wetten, dass ...? in front.

The album Planet Colors was released in February 2001 and contained the other singles Hard to Say I'm Sorry , Way to Your Heart and the title track of the Tour Colors of Life .

The “Planet Colors” tour led DJ BoBo through the largest halls in Germany and Switzerland with four different sets. The show took the visitor from a gloomy stage setting to a temple world and an Asian world to a colorful stage setting in the finale. The support program included No Angels and Marque .

2002: Celebration

In addition to a cover version of Celebration (originally by Kool & The Gang ), the Celebration album featured many guest singers such as Melanie Thornton , Gölä , Emilia , ATC , some of whom reinterpreted DJ BoBo's songs. Some songs such as Somebody Dance with Me or Pray were released in a "2002 version". Celebration was the last album to be marketed by DJ BoBo's first record company EAMS, among others.

The unique show celebration took place at the beginning of April 2002 with numerous guest musicians in the Arena Oberhausen in Germany.

The second concert in 2002 was a trip to Ulan Bator in Mongolia , where he was the first western musician to give a concert in the central stadium there in front of thousands of spectators. Although DJ BoBo had never released a CD there, his music made it to Mongolia through blackmailing.

2002-2004: Chihuahua & Visions

A small request from Coca-Cola Spain quickly turned into something bigger when the mambo song Chihuahua was used as background music for a commercial in the summer of 2002. It had to be produced within ten days according to the specifications and was sent to Spain as a demo version in MP3 format. There they supplied all radio stations with the song without any further feedback and a few weeks later the song made it to number one in Spain and Mexico.

In addition to the success in Spain and Mexico, work was carried out on the new album Visions . At the beginning of January 2003 the single I Believe was released , which with Let's Come Together (We Are Family) also contained the title track for the 2003 Alpine World Ski Championships in St. Moritz , Switzerland.

The “Visions” tour began in May 2003 and had three different sets (from an Aztec temple to a cartoon world to a futuristic western saloon). The band was new to the show: for the first time, most of the music was played live with real instruments (drums, percussions, keyboards, guitar and bass). The female voices continued to come as playback. The male singers DJ BoBo and Anthony Moriah (aka "Tone") have been singing live at every concert since the late 1990s.

The second single, Chihuahua , has now also been released in Switzerland and became a number one hit, making it the summer hit of 2003. In France, too, the single became the summer hit of 2003 as the background for the advertising campaign and sold over 750,000 singles Eleven weeks in first place. Further great successes with Chihuahua were achieved in Italy and the Czech Republic, where second place looked out as the highest position. In autumn 2003 the single also reached England and Ireland , where the single reached number 36 and 11 respectively. The single was released in Australia and Japan. In response to the great success, a single with a techno remix and a Chihuahua album with the big summer hits were released in Switzerland .

In autumn 2003, at the end of the Visions year, the CD Live in Concert was released, the first live CD by DJ BoBo. In 2004 DJ BoBo retired to work on his new program.

At the end of November 2004 DJ BoBo presented some new songs and the new stage on the occasion of a showcase in Engelberg (Switzerland).

The Pirates of Dance tour started in April 2005 and led through Switzerland, Germany, Poland and for two concerts to Disneyland Paris . The opening act occurred Nicole da Silva and Virus Incorporation of which had during the show appearances as acrobatics troupe.

The album Pirates of Dance was released in February 2005 and included the single Pirates of Dance and Amazing Life .

As a special event, DJ BoBo organized a greatest hits show in Engelberg on August 1, 2006 ( Swiss National Day ) . Tickets for this concert were only available when buying a greatest hits CD, as it was designed as a thank-you concert.

The audience was asked in advance to come to the concert in red tops, as the stage consisted of a large white cross. Together this resulted in the Swiss cross .

2007: Eurovision Song Contest

On the occasion of a TV appearance on Swiss television in mid-October 2006, DJ BoBo expressed his intention to represent Switzerland at the Eurovision Song Contest 2007 in Helsinki ( Finland ) if the Swiss population so wishes. Votes on newspaper websites and radio stations were positive, and DJ BoBo submitted a song to the relevant jury.

DJ BoBo at the Eurovision Song Contest 2007

In mid-December 2006, the jury made the decision that DJ BoBo would represent Switzerland at the Eurovision Song Contest 2007 with the title Vampires Are Alive . The single was released on March 9, 2007 in Switzerland and on April 20, 2007 across Europe, but is said to have been boycotted by some Swiss radio stations. The Evangelical Alliance called for the text to be changed or for the contribution to be withdrawn, as it "posed a threat to young people at risk of suicide". A petition from concerned Christians and the Federal Democratic Union (EDU) should get the song canceled. A total of 49,083 signatures were collected. In addition, the Swiss Federal Council was called on to maintain public peace. Regardless of this, the single was on March 25, 2007 at number 3 on the official Swiss hit parade. In its response to the petition, the Federal Council referred to the freedom of expression, the independence of the Swiss television jury and the artist's free creativity, which is why the song could not be canceled.

Despite high expectations - a British jury put him in 2nd place - DJ BoBo failed in the semifinals of the Eurovision Song Contest , where he finished 20th. DJ BoBo then spoke out in favor of changing the regulations.
