According to wikipedia: Canada was a major Eurodance market, the largest outside Europe, which produced its own variant called Canadance. From about 1993 to 1997, acts such as Capital Sound, Temperance, Jefferson Project, Emjay, Solina, Roxxy, BKS, Love Inc. among others; originating mainly in major cities of Central Canada such as Toronto, Montreal and Ottawa were hitting the airwaves. Eurodance received significant airplay on radio stations in the Greater Toronto Area such as Energy 108 and Hot 103.5 which later became Z103.5. By the late 90s, the popularity of this genre was in decline. Today, Eurodance receives little airtime on Canadian radio stations, however Z103.5 plays the genre in rotation almost daily. Some nightclubs in the Toronto area have dedicated nights to this genre, however.

So tell me canadians, (tolch, jane) what were your favorites back in the day?

Maxx - Getaway seems like something you would like.

or perhaps Look Twice - Feel the night is more to your liking.

I feel this area of canadian musical taste must be explored very much in depth.

I haven't heard of any of those bands but have never really had much of a liking for dance music - sorry!

I see, you only dance when drunk? Didn't extacy catch on in north america? It really is the best drug for dancing.
