Formation of Cascada:
Natalie Horler was born September 23, 1981. In her late teens she began singing in the studio working with a variety of producers and DJs. She eventually met Manuel Reuter, aka DJ Manian, and Yann Pfeiffer, aka Yanou. The latter had worked with DJ Sammy on the international dance hit "Heaven." The trio recorded the single "Miracle" in 2004 under the name Cascade. Legal problems soon caused them to change the name to Cascada.

Everytime We Touch:
The single "Everytime We Touch" was released in 2005 and became a top 10 dance-pop single around the world. It was certified platinum for sales and was a relatively rare breakthrough into mainstream pop in the US for a dance track. The album Everytime We Touch followed in February 2006. It reached #2 on the UK album chart and ultimately sold in the range of seven million copies around the world. A follow up single, a cover of Savage Garden's "Truly, Madly, Deeply," was another top 10 pop smash in the UK.
Cascada previewed their next album Perfect Day with a cover of the Rascal Flatts hit "What Hurts the Most" released in November 2007. It was another top 10 hit in a number of European countries and reached the top 40 in the US. The album followed in December 2007 and reached the top 10 in the UK, but it was only a minor success in the US stalling at #70. Perfect Day failed to generate additional significant hit singles.
Evacuate the Dancefloor:
Cascada's third album Evacuate the Dancefloor was preceded by the release of the title track as a single. The song "Evacuate the Dancefloor" is the group's first #1 pop single in the UK and reached the top 10 in a number of other European countries. The album has peaked at #8 in the UK.
