Originally comprising Lyane Leigh and American-born Raz-Ma-Taz (Richard Michael Smith), the group started in 1994 and recorded throughout the rest of the 1990s. However by June 1996, both members of the group had left due to a disagreement between Leigh and producer David Brandes. E-Rotic now comprised Jeanette Christensen and Terence d'Arby (not to be confused with Terence Trent D'Arby). Lyane Leigh continued to provide vocal work for several albums until 1999 due to contract, but she and Raz-Ma-Taz formed their own group in the meantime, known as S.E.X. Appeal. In October of the same year, d'Arby was replaced by Ché Jouaner.
