Eiffel 65 was a Grammy-nominated Italian electronic dance three-piece group, formed in the late 1990s and best known for their international hit "Blue (Da Ba Dee)". Their other hit singles include "Move Your Body" and "Too Much of Heaven", all of which appeared on their album Europop, released in late 1999. The name "Eiffel" was chosen randomly by a computer program and the "65" was scribbled onto their name on a demo by mistake; it was actually part of a phone number.

Eiffel 65 achieved considerable success in the U.S. Europop peaked in the top five on the Billboard 200, and sold over two million units. "Blue (Da Ba Dee)" peaked at #6 on the Billboard charts.[1] No other Italian pop or dance group before or since has ever achieved such sales in the USA.

Later work and reformation

Eiffel 65 also made thirty remixes of tracks by other artists like Nek's hit single "La vita è" and S Club 7's "Reach" between 1999 and 2002 and in early 2005 a remix of Yo Yo Mundi's "L'Ultimo Testimone".

In early March 2005 the group's DJ, Gabry Ponte, broke up the group to be able to focus on his solo career. On May 16, 2005, the remaining two members, Maurizio Lobina, and Jeffrey Jey, left Bliss Corporation to continue on their own with their own production company. Since the name "Eiffel 65" is property of Bliss Corporation, the duo has decided to continue under a new name, as announced in June 2006, Bloom 06.

Eiffel 65's long anticipated fourth album, under the working title Crash Test, had already finished production by the time of Maury's and Jeffrey's departure from Bliss Corporation, and has been released. The album's lyrics are in both English and Italian. The first album Crash Test 01, originally to be Eiffel 65's fourth album titled "Crash Test", was released on October 13, 2006.

The Bliss Corporation had confirmed that a new Eiffel 65 line-up would make their debut in summer of 2007 but then the debut was postponed until further notice.

The single of "Blue (Da Ba Dee) Remix 2009" has released including remixes by Gabry Ponte, and Djs From Mars.

Currently Bliss Corporation working on old brands promoting. With subtitled video put on Bliss Corporation Official Channel on You Tube showing us unseen Eiffel 65's videos along with original Eiffel 65's soundtracks from different albums.

EPs

Zorotl

Zorotl is a character created by the Bliss Corporation and featured in the videos for "Move Your Body", "Blue (Da Ba Dee)", and "Lucky (In My Life)".

In 2000 the Bliss Corporation made a video for the unreleased Eiffel 65 song "I Wanna Be". An alpha version of the video appeared as enhanced content for Eiffel's single "Too Much of Heaven"; the song is credited to Zorotl even though it was recorded by members of Eiffel 65, so Zorotl is considered a virtual group.
