StyleDisco, pop
 Albums: Raze the Roof (CBS, 1989), Attitude (CBS, 1991).

History
Sydney-based singer Collette Roberts first came to the nation's attention when she signed to CBS and issued a cover of Anita Ward's 1979 disco hit `Ring My Bell'/`Save Yourself' as her debut single. `Ring My Bell' reached #3 on the national charts in May 1989. Collette followed this up with two further hits, `All I Wanna Do Is Dance'/`Push' (#12 in August) and `That's what I Like About You'/`Hothouse' (#35 in December).

DJ Stephen `Pee Wee' Ferris (ex-Flotsam Jetsam) produced Collette's debut album Raze the Roof. In 1990, Collette returned to the studio with producer Mark S. Berry for her second album, Attitude, which produced the singles `Who do You Think You Are?' (#71 in October), `Upside Down' and a cover of Natalie Cole's `This Will Be' (1991). `Who do You Think You Are?' featured New Jack Swing beat stylings (a mix of funk, soul and hip hop) and its lyrics were aimed at Collette's critics.
