Twenty years ago Australia’s iconic 90s dance and pop duo Madison Avenue tattooed their place in the music industry with their hit anthem “Don’t Call Me Baby.”
The track skyrocketed on the Australian music charts in November 1999, including gravitating across oceans, selling over one million copies and topping the UK, European and U.S Billboard Dance Charts in the early 2000’s!
With the success of Madison Avenue’s breakthrough release ‘Don’t Call Me Baby’ it opened up the opportunity for Andy Van to orchestrate a record deal with Virgin Records UK and Sony Music worldwide. While signing record deals, the duo were also breaking music records for Madison Avenue and were the first Australian dance act to top the Australian singles charts.
In 2000, Madison Avenue released their debut album Polyester Embassy featuring the number #1 tracks: ‘Don’t Call Me Baby’ and follow-up single: ‘Who the Hell Are You?’ (debuting in Australia at #1 one week after ‘Don’t Call Me Baby’ reached #1 in the UK) as well as a cover version of the Little River Band’s song: ‘Reminiscing.’
In 2019, it’s time to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Madison Avenue’s international number one track: ‘Don’t Call Me Baby’ which is a true testament to the successful longevity in the Australian dance and pop music scene. The duo now work separately in the music industry, Andy Van continues to work as a successful DJ / Producer & Record Label Owner at Vicious Recordings and Cheyne Coates is a songwriter writing tracks for other Artists.
To celebrate the 20th anniversary of “Don’t Call Me Baby”, Madison Avenue is set to release a special anniversary edition of the track which includes two remixes from Mousse T and Super Disco Club on November 15, 2019.
