Jam & Spoon were a 1990 founded German electronic music duo consisting of classically trained musician & producer, Rolf Ellmer (Jam El Mar), and producer & DJ, Markus Löffel (Mark Spoon). Heralded among the pioneers of Trance the duo made an enormous impact in 1992 with their groundbreaking remix of the self-titled single by Age Of Love. After the first Jam and Spoon EP, 'Tales From A Danceographic Ocean' - incl. influential hit Stella - the duo unleashed a barrage of succesful remix material for Moby, Frankie Goes To Hollywood, Deep Forest and others. The single 'Right in the Night (Fall in Love with Music)' followed in 1993, the first of several of the duo's recordings to feature the American-born vocalist, Plavka. That same year, Jam and Spoon issued their full-length debut LP, the two- volume 'Tripomatic Fairytales 2001/2002' which saw a move away from the pile- driving beats of earlier efforts towards a more commercial sound. Though the next Jam and Spoon LP, 1997's 'Kaleidoscope', didn't cause much of a splash, a remix of 'Stella' became a worldwide club hit in 1999. The non-album related single 'Be.Angeled' followed in 2001. The final Jam & Spoon album ‘Tripomatic Fairytales 3003’ was released in 2004. Although the duo began their career as a Techno/Trance act, especially their final album saw them open up in all directions, with a sound years ahead of it's time. Markus Löffel died of a heart attack in his Berlin flat, on 11 January 2006. He was 39 years old.
