Atlantic Ocean is the Dutch trance/electronic duo, comprising Lex van Coeverden and Rene van der Weyde.[1]

The duo is most remembered for its hit single, "Waterfall". They entered the UK Singles Chart four times in the 1990s, the entries being "Waterfall", "Body in Motion", "Music is a Passion" and a remix of "Waterfall".[2] Another single, "Cycle of Life", failed to chart and further releases of "Waterfall" were made, though either failed or were ineligible for the chart.[3] The band released several EPs including Lorelei, Pegasus, Set You Free and Trance-Atlantis.

"Waterfall"[edit]

The duo's first and most successful track was "Waterfall". It was originally released as a single in 1993. However, the track is included in many Ministry of Sound compilation albums. In the track's original single release, three versions of the song were included. These were a radio edit, a tranquil mix and an original 12" edition.

The track has been remixed several times, most notably by ATB, Woody Van Eyden and Peter Parker. Dave Moreaux and Dennis Quin made the official 2011 version which is released August 2011.

"Don't Stop Now" by Lemon Jelly samples the song and gives it the alternative name for the song "'93", after the year of release for "Waterfall". It features on '64-'95.

The song also appeares on Now Dance The Best of 1994.
