Background information
Origin Italy
Genre(s) Eurodance

Gabry Ponte (Gabriele Ponte, born April 20, 1973) is an Italian DJ best known for his membership in the Italian dance group Eiffel 65. Ponte has been involved with the Bliss Team, DJ Gundam, and Sangwara. With Eiffel 65's rise to fame in the late 1990s, his celebrity (or semi-celebrity) status was established, and he later went on to produce the Italian hits "Geordie" (a cover of Fabrizio de André's song by the same name) and "La Danza delle Streghe." Also to his credit are a number of remixes of popular dance songs such as Gianni Togni's Giulia. In 2005, Ponte announced he would be separating from Eiffel 65 to pursue solo work. In 2007 he released a brand new EP, "Love Songs in the Digital Age According to Gabry Ponte" which inludes the new track "the Point Of No Return".

Gabry Ponte first started his career as a DJ at BlissCorporation in 1993, in late 1995 he started his own record label there known as Worldbus Records. The primary focus of the label was to remake current and past hit songs of other artists into modern dance tracks. Several of the label's artists became some of BlissCorporation's biggest, Full Sex, Karmah, Funktastica, and Sangwara, which Gabry Ponte was directly involved in. After three years Worldbus Records became Piranha Records and Gabry Ponte went on to create a song called "Blue (Da Ba Dee)", at that point a normal BlissCorporation release under the label Skooby Records. The song became a hit in Italy and was the first from BlissCorporation to be released outside of Europe, from there it became a worldwide hit. The trio behind it, dubbed Eiffel 65, then produced an album called "Europop" which too became a large hit. 2 Albums, 10 singles, and 6 years later, Eiffel 65 parted ways and Gabry Ponte stayed with BlissCorporation to continue with his solo work, releasing a number of singles and staying active in Italy's music scene.

Sangwara
Sangwara was one of the projects that was released under Gabry Ponte's record label, Worldbus Records in the late 90s. It was the only one he was directly involved in and produced the most hits the label had to offer. Their first release was a cover of Coolio's "Gangsta's Paradise", which was well received in both Italy and Spain, followed by a remake of Roberta Flack's "Killing Me Softly", which had also been recently remade by the Fugees. This track became one of Sangwara's most well known and was made into a music video. This was followed by a release called "Bohemian Rhapsody", a cover of Queen's classic, also recently remade by The Braids. This release wasn't such a big hit for them and is now hard to find as a result. In early 1997 they produced their fourth release and final cover, a remake of No Doubt's "Don't Speak". This became Sangwara's biggest hit and was released on CD throughout Europe. After being inactive for almost a year Sangwara recorded their final release, an original track titled "Find A Way" which was released with four remixes. It was at that time that Worldbus Records ceased existence, which may have contributed to Sangwara's end. Over the 2 year career of Sangwara, it's primary members, DJs Gabry Ponte and MTJ Capuano, and vocalist Claire Thomas, often paired up with various other people to make the releases. Jeffrey Jey sung vocals on two of their releases and Joe Fancey, an American rapper, on one. Simone Pastore, of Da Blitz was also one of many well known figures from BlissCorporation to lend his hand in the production and mixing stages. Ultimately Sangwara was Gabry Ponte's big entrance into the world of music. This article is about the hip hop artist. ...

Gabry Ponte - La danza delle Streghe [thunderfactory hardfloor remix]
When i heard the original Gabry Ponte's "la danza delle streghe" (=the dance of the witches...) i thought that it was a good idea but not hard enough to be a good song too...So i completely recreated that tune, aiming to produce a harder and less "commercial" track.
