Artist Biography Available in: U96 is a German dance music project formed by the DJ and producer Alex Christensen and a team of producers called Matiz (Ingo Hauss, Helmut Hoinkis, and Hayo Panarinfo). The name of the project comes from the film, Das Boot, about the German submarine U-96 from the Second World War. The project's first hit "Das Boot" (1991) is a techno adaptation of the film's title melody, which had been originally composed by Klaus Doldinger. An album of the same name was also released.
Their next album, Replugged (1993) was inspired by the electro sounds of the 1980s and by ambient and disco music themes. It was less commercially successful than the first album, but provided a couple of Top 10 hits in "Love Sees No Colour" and "Night in Motion".
