E-Rotic are a Eurodance duo act formed in 1994 by German record producer David Brandes. The act is best known in Europe for the hits “Max Don’t Have Sex With Your Ex” and “Fred Come to Bed”. E-Rotic originally consisted of German born singer Lyane Leigh (real name Liane Hegemann) and American rapper Richard Allen Smith (a.k.a. Raz-Ma-Taz). The act is known for its use of sexual references and innuendo in their songs and music videos.
The E-Rotic logo first appeared on the cover of their debut single “Max Don’t Have Sex With Your Ex” (1994), with design and artwork credited to I-D Büro and Zoran Bihać, respectively. The Greek/Roman-based letterforms are from a 1990s typeface, designed by Jonathan Barnbrook and released by Emigre. It’s name? Exocet!
