Nalin & Kane are a German production and remixing team, comprising Andry Nalin (born Andreas Bialek, 14 May 1969) and Harry Kane (born Ralf Beck, 21 November 1966). Their international breakthrough came with the Ibiza anthem, "Beachball", in late 1997.

Origins and "Beachball"[edit]

The duo began working together in 1993 as Nalin Inc. and released their first 12-inch single, "Planet Orange", in 1994. They began their own label, Superfly Records in 1995, releasing the singles "The K-People" and "Backfire" before the turning point came with "Beachball". They have since had success with remixes of Energy 52's "Café Del Mar" and Da Hool's "Meet Her At The Love Parade." In late 1999, they released their debut album, Krystal Palace.

"Beachball" was notable for topping the club charts in many countries during its time of release. Like the majority of dance releases, the track has been remixed several times but none have come close to repeating the success of the original version. A cover version by Burnette was released at the same time, leading to two versions competing for chart position.

The track "Open Your Eyes" is featured on Tiësto's, In Search of Sunrise 3.
