The project was established in the year 1994. The group consists of 2 rappers/songwriters Mike Griesheimer & Thomas Detert, singer Helen Smith and producers Alexander Stiepel & Andreas Hoetter (A-Team). They released the singles "Let The Rhythm Take Control", "The Beat Of The Drum" and "Save Me" in 1994. Then followed in 1995 the singles "I Say What I Want" and "Tell Me". That year their album "Visions" was also released. In the middle of 1996 the track "Rhythm And Drums" was released. Anticipating Eurodance's decrease of popularity, they wanted to introduce a new style, but the single flopped all over the world. Then they decided to give up Activate and to establish the 666 project. The debut-single from 666 "Alarma" is a remake of the Activate-song with the same name.
Activate is an eurodande group formed in 1993. Activate has 2 male rappers (Thomas Detert and Mike Griesheimer) and several female singers (Nicole.W, Rachel Rack, Nanni Zagar and Helen Smith).
Thomas Detert and Mike Griesheimer are also the producers of the techno project 666.
