Over the course of their career, 2 Unlimited have sold in excess of 18 million records, cementing themselves as one of the most iconic acts in the history of electronic music. One of the group’s first musical creations, Get Ready For This, saw them take on two further members, Ray Slijngaard and Anita Doth, who eventually came to front the act. With the track enjoying popularity as ideal club dance music, it achieved widespread attention in the club scene. It wasn’t long before the group came to sign their first record deal, resulting in the official release of Get Ready For This.
The track performed particularly well in The Netherlands, Belgium, Australia and the United Kingdom. As such, the track saw the group take their first steps towards their eventual status as legendary techno DJs. The group continued to build upon their increasing musical momentum through the release of their second single, Twilight Zone. This song also performed well commercially, achieving chart success in a number of different countries including the United States. 2 Unlimited soon came to present their full-length debut album, Get Ready!, which produced a number of notable singles.
Songs like Workaholic, Contrast, Delight and Get Ready For This saw the album sell over 500,000 units in the United States.

The album went on to sell an impressive 3 million units, making the release their most successful to date.
The full-length releases that followed, Real Things and Hits Unlimited, saw the group build upon their reputation as a premier electronic dance music act. Despite a number of line-up changes, 2 Unlimited soon came out with what was to be their last studio album, II.
