Over time, Denniz PoP recruited a team of producers and songwriters including Jacob Schulze, Kristian Lundin and a metalhead who went by the name Max Martin. By the mid-nineties, fresh-faced teen-pop musicians started showing up in Stockholm to record with them, walking away with such classics as Quit Playing Games (with My Heart), Tearin' Up My Heart and … Baby One More Time.
And I liked it..
