In 1996, they released "Ultra Flava," a #3 hit on the US Billboard Hot Dance Music/Club Play chart. The track also peaked at #22 in the UK Singles Chart.[2]

On his own, Heller hit #1 on the US Hot Dance Music/Club Play chart with "Big Love", which held the top spot for three weeks and also was ranked by Billboard as the #1 dance song of 1999.[3] The same track peaked at #12 in the UK.[2]
