AB Logic was a Belgian Eurodance project arranged and produced by Jacko Bultinck and Peter Gillis in 1991. Its members included rapper K-Swing (Cedric Murril) and pop music vocalist Marianne Festraets. In 1992, they released the song "The Hitman".[1] The same year, they released their self-titled debut album, which received a positive review from Alex Henderson of AllMusic.[2] It fared much better on various mainland European pop charts than on the Billboard 200 album chart. They scored two minor Billboard Hot 100 hits in 1992 with "The Hitman" (#60[3]) and "Get Up (Move Boy Move)" (#83[3]). In Australia, "The Hitman" reached the top 10 on the ARIA singles chart in 1993, and was certified gold.[4] Another charting single, "AB Logic", was released in 1993.
