"Ecuador" is a song produced by German DJ and record production team Sash!, featuring Adrian Rodriguez. It was released in April 1997 as the third single from their debut album, It's My Life – The Album. The song became an international hit and reached the top 20 in more than ten countries worldwide.

Song information[edit]

Being the follow-up single to the massively successful "Encore Une Fois", a lot was riding on this next Sash! release. The single was just as successful, and reached number 2 in the UK Singles Chart, earning another Gold certification for sales in excess of 400,000. The song became a European smash, reaching the top 10 in Germany, Switzerland, The Netherlands, Belgium (where it peaked at number one), Sweden, Finland, Norway and Ireland. It also reached the top 20 in Austria and France. In the United States, it was the second number one on the Hot Dance Club Play chart for Sash!.[1]

Adaptations[edit]

In 2005, the song was adapted by the Starstylers into their first single titled "Keep on Moving".

In 2011, the song was remixed with vocals by Jean Pearl in the song "Mirror Mirror".

In 2013, the music from the song was used for the dance hit "This Is Nightlife" by the German dance project ItaloBrothers.

In 2015, the song was reworked by DJ Olly James and released on Spinnin' Records.
