There are multiple artists by the name "Dune". 1) German rave band Dune. 2) Finnish demoscene musician, now known as Brothomstates. 3) Alias for drum & bass DJ and artist Ray Keith. 4) An Indiana, U.S. based musician recording a single album. 5) An Australian power/progressive metal band. 6) Danish indie rock band Dúné 7) French band active in the 70s 8) Laurent Garnier, Pascal F.E.O.S. 1) The German rave band Dune.
The band was founded in 1995 by Oliver Froning and Jens Oettrich, who are both big fans of the novels by Frank Herbert - hence the name Dune. Their first single "Hardcore Vibes" featured the voice of Oliver's then 11-year-old cousin Janine. Their second single "Are You Ready to Fly?" sounded quite different and already featured the typical Dune-style with high-pitched vocals and a catchy melody.
At the end of 1996 the band released the album "Forever" with a lot of tracks in a classical style - all tracks where performed together with the London Session Orchestra (see Dune & The London Session Orchestra). Lead singer Verena Von Strenge left Dune after the release of "Forever" to start a solo career. Dune came back in April 1998 with a new lead singer (Vanessa Hörster). The single "Keep the Secret" was only a medium success and its successor "Electric Heaven" flopped completely.
In late 1999 Verena Von Strenge came back as lead singer after her solo career was not as successful as she wanted it to be. The single "Dark Side of the Moon" was released and the album "Reunion" was produced and ready for release in May 2000. However the album was never released due to a court order that stopped the single "Heaven".
The latest single released was "Rainbow To The Stars 2003", a rework of their 1996 classic. It was released on 23 June 2003.
