The Beatfreakz is a dance group formed in the Netherlands in 2006. The band consists of Dennis Christopher, Dimitrie Siliakus and Mark Simmons.
The group's first big hit was a song making prominent use of a sample from Rockwell's hit "Somebody's Watching Me". Instead of using the original voice of Rockwell aka Kenneth Gordy, they used the voice of Dennis Delano a Dutch singer. The song peaked at #3 in the UK Singles Chart in May 2006 and peaked at #12 in the Dutch Top 40. It debuted at #36 in the Belgium UltraTop 50 and peaked at #45 in Australia. It also debuted at #3 in the German Official Dance Chart. The video was a parody of Michael Jackson's hit Thriller.
The band released the follow-up track "Superfreak", a Rick James remix on October 2, 2006.
They revealed exclusively on Radio One's Chart Show on October 15, 2006, that their next project was likely to be a remix of the Ghostbusters theme tune, original from Ray Parker Jr. This track was previewed at the Matinee closing party in Ibiza on September 30, 2006.
Another song of theirs is released on the Put Your Hands Up! 2 compilation, a remake of Aerosmith's Walk This Way.
