Real Mccoy

 

Real McCoy, originally known as M.C. Sar & The Real McCoy, was a German Eurodance group, who are best known for their international hits Another Night in 1993 and Run Away in 1994.

Real McCoy was the brainchild of German rapper and producer Olaf “O-Jay” Jeglitza. After having released a few limited edition 12” singles in Germany under the name “The Alliance” with friend Frank “Quickmix” Hassas, their first major breakthrough came in December 1989 when a cover of the Technotronic hit “Pump Up The Jam” went to #16 on the German singles chart.

At this point, the act was faceless so for the second single, the original track It’s On You, singer Patsy Petersen and ‘rapper’ Shampro were enlisted to join the group. O-Jay felt uncomfortable being the frontman so Shampro mimed O-Jay’s raps. The single, on its release in 1990, climbed to #11 in Germany. An album “On The Move” was also released.

After this things went a little quiet for a while until they hooked up with David Brunner, Head of A&R at Hansa Records. He was impressed by a song O-Jay had co-written called “Another Night” but was dissatisfied with Patsy’s vocals.

Real McCoy is the brainchild of German rapper and producer Olaf "O-Jay" Jeglitza. After having released a few limited edition 12" singles in Germany under various project names (e.g. The Alliance, The Admirers) on his own label "Freshline Records" (founded 1988 by Frank "Quickmix" Hassas & O-Jay, their first major breakthrough came in December 1989 when a cover of the Technotronic hit "Pump Up The Jam" went to No. 16 on the German singles chart. Juergen Wind joined the production team before the single was released.

At this point, the act was faceless so for the second single, the original track "It's on You", singer Patsy Petersen and 'rapper' Shampro were enlisted to join the group. O-Jay felt uncomfortable being the frontman, so Shampro mimed O-Jay's raps. The single, on its release in 1990, climbed to No. 11 in Germany. An album On The Move was also released.


A trio of Olaf Jeglitza, Patricia Petersen and Vanessa Mason, the Real McCoy formed in Berlin in 1993 and soon became popular throughout Europe with the chart-topping hit "Another Night."

In late 1994, the single hit number three on the American charts, as did the following year's "Run Away."

Their debut album “Another Night” went double-platinum by late 1995, and “One More Time” followed in 1997.
