Another unknown example of the so called country-techno is Banquet - Drunken sailor. In fact when i heard it once back in 1995 my first thought was woowwww new song from Rednex.....Check it out and you will understand why.

The style called "Euro House" had many variants. One of them was the so-called "Country House", which became popular in 1994 when a underground techno record "Swamp Thing" from the English band "The Grid" became a massive club- and mainstream hit.
One of the acts who had the most benefits of this succes was the Swedish act Rednex. their first records "Cotton Eye Joe" and "Old Pop In An Oak" were based on classic country melodies, and had the sounds of banjos and accordions all over it.
Halfway 1995 the country house-hype was over, but Rednex kept trying to produce hits, with less country-influences that was. These tracks were also less succesful then their two first, idiotic, tracks.
