Tahj Mowry has released a collaboration single with the Boom Boom Satellites and rapper Flo-Rida. The song is called “Kick It Out”. Tahj (via his MySpace blog) says the movement stands for people “just being themselves and being genuine and not worrying about what anyone negative feels or thinks. Kick out the negative, kick out the old, kick out whatever you may need, to be you!”. I can definitely dig that! Positivity all day. - www.trueexclusives.com

Bio

Their first release of 12” single was made in Europe in 1997, which triggered rave reviews from definitive European music magazines such as Melody Maker, who compared their debut impact to those of the Chemical Brothers’ and Prodigy’s. In the following year of 1998, the band traveled across Europe performing at 6 major rock festivals and accompanying a European tour of the legendary Electronica unit, Underworld, to perform with. Then, right after their triumphant return to Japan, the band dropped the first album “OUTLOUD”, which was later released in Europe and the USA as well.

The band subsequently embarked on a tour with Moby for his 3-months national tour. Shortly afterwards, they began receiving – and still keep receiving – requests for remix work from various artists such as Garbage, Josh Wink, and to many to name; which proved that their sound could be acclaimed and accepted internationally.

Their success was followed by releases of the albums “UMBRA” (2001) and “PHOTON” (2002). It was also around this time when the band started performances at various festivals including the Japan’s largest “Fuji Rock Festival”. With their absolute originality coming out of the blend of philosophical lyrics and untamed physical rave experience, and the roughness of Rock’n’roll and meticulousness of electronic program, their performance always generated overwhelming energy that could also create a spiritual atmosphere.

This exquisite blend of things – the things which are seemingly opposite each other – is definitely a part of reasons why Boom Boom Satellites keeps receiving appraisal from various kinds of creators. Oliver Stone and Luc Besson, who had chosen the band’s track to use in the film 'Yamakashi', were indeed one of them.

The band was privileged with another opportunity to coordinate a soundtrack album to the fully animated film “APPLESEED” in 2004 (original story by Masamune Shiro). With the artists such as Paul Oakenfold, Basement Jaxx, and Ryuichi Sakamoto on board, Boom Boom Satellites contributed four new songs including the movie’s main theme, “Dive For You”, to the soundtrack.

In 2005, their 4th album “FULL OF ELEVATING PLEASURES” was released in Japan, and the release was realized in the USA in the year next as well. They performed at M3 music convention (Miami Music Multimedia) to further promote the album, and the reaction from the audience and media to the performance was extraordinary. In 2006, they released the album, “ON”. Two songs from the album – “KICK IT OUT” and “PILL” - were featured in the TV commercials aired nationwide to further raise the artist’s profile. Indeed, it resulted in their stage performance at festivals, such as Rock In Japan Festival and Summer Sonic 06. Their stage attracted huge crowds of people – it was indeed more than the venue’s capacity – and the entrance of audience was barred halfway of the performance for the safety reasons, which even more brought a lot of excitement to the fans.

In November 2007, their latest album “EXPOSED” was released in much anticipation. Japanese lead track “Easy Action” was featured in 3D live action anime film, “Vexille” (directed by Fumihiko Sori), and was included in the soundtrack which also features Asian Dub Foundation, Underworld, and The Prodigy. In the following year of 2008, the album was released in Australia and USA, and 12” vinyl of this track has been also released through NEUTON/Joint Records in Europe, which marks and celebrates the band’s return to the international market.

In this year, Boom Boom Satellite has been gaining extra attention from film/anime creators. “Shut Up and Explode”, a track from “EXPOSED”, was chosen as the opening theme to Sony Playstation 3 exclusive digital animation “Xam’d: Lost Memories”. “Scatterin' Monkey" and "4 A Moment Of Silence", those of which are from catalog, are featured in the film "THE DARK KNIGHT" as its background music, too.

The latest album has been produced through the long-standing rebellion of the band to the world that tends to appreciate music genre-by-genre; namely, Rock or Dance. However, they have a clear answer in this album – Rock AND Dance, both can exist at the same time and place. Within this 42-minute size album, their struggle for music continues to resonate, and the album has become the unveiling of a new chapter in the history of Boom Boom Satellites once again.
