DHT (sometimes stylized as D.H.T., acronym for Dance House Trance) is a Belgian duo consisting of singer Edmée Daenen (born 25 March 1985 in Kortrijk) and Flor Theeuwes (born 28 July 1976 in Turnhout). They had a hit in the US and in Australia in 2005, with their cover version of "Listen to Your Heart", originally recorded by Roxette. The track reached #7 in the UK Singles Chart in December of that year.[1] Marketing of the song often referenced DHT as an acronym for Definite Hit Track. The duo has not released any songs since 2010.

They have been one of the very few artists to crack the US Billboard Hot 100 Top 10 with a trance song.[2]

Belgian Eurodance act consisting of Flor Theeuwes & Edmée Daenen. The name D.H.T. originally comes from Danger Hardcore Team, but since they never made any Hardcore tracks they shortened it to D.H.T., and because they had a Pop hit in the U.S, they changed the meaning of the letters DHT to "Dance House Trance", since that also wasn't representative for their style of music it was once again changed, and nowadays it stands for "Don't Hate This".[citation needed]
