Dancelife started to produce specialized dance music in the early 80’s together with Walter Laird & Nico Gomes. New technology was already high on the priority list as they were the first company in the dance industry to convert their productions from vinyl to CD. After introducing chart music with strict tempo music (1986) for social dancing, they introduced original tracks with adjusted speed for the dance sport in 1993. As a trend setting company they kept on innovating and introduced the first specialized remix for dancing in 2002. It was at this time that they also acquired the catalogue of their biggest competitor Tanz Orchester Klaus Hallen. In 2008 they offered their catalogue, as first in the dance industry, to be downloaded from portals like iTunes. Together with The Source all newly developed music platforms across the world were provided with specialized dance music. In 2017 a new project started called MUSIC4.DANCE, this is a B2B streaming platform aimed at the dance studios across the world. It is the first and only platform which offers commercially usable dance music.
