The Boer brothers had already been experimenting with music in a small bedroom when they finally gained note in 1990, when their single Can’t Help Myself was picked up by Dutch radio stations and became an international hit. The brothers then brought together rapper Da Smooth Baron MC and singers Peggy «The Duchess» and Gale Robinson to form their stage act. The release of their next single, Turn Da Music Up was somewhat less successful, but helped the band to gain name recognition.
2 Brothers on the 4th Floor made two hit singles together before separating. Martin Boer moved into a new professional studio and started making remixes under the name Dancability Productions, making remixes for artists such as Becky Bell, Twenty 4 Seven and Luv’ (for their Megamix ’93), while Bobby Boer designed record covers and CD inlays for other artists.
