Bio

ATTENTION! Extremely Funky Break Beat Alarm!!!
The TORPEDO BOYZ can’t be stopped!

Berlin is not a place where things happen according to the normal rules. And Berlin’s Torpedo Boyz — winners of the 2009 US American Independent Music Award for best dance/electronica album for Cum On Feel the Boyz — are proof of that.

But let’s start from the beginning. In 2004 their ground-shaking debut 12”“Gimme A Bassline!” entered the Top 5 in the German Club Charts shortly after its release and was picked by PUMA for a major tv spot. In no time the track started to rotate on turntables and airplaylists around the globe. New York-based Ursula 1000 put “Bassline!” on his famous “Ursuladelica” compilation, en vogue producers Fort Knox Five from Washington D.C. offered their remix services for their next single.

New York-based Ursula 1000 put “Bassline!” on his famous “Ursuladelica” compilation, en vogue producers Fort Knox Five from Washington D.C. offered their remix services for their next single.

The Torpedo Boyz continued delivering more quality dancefloor smash hits like „Are You Talking To Me???“, „Japaneeze Boyz“ and „The Disco Song“ (with remixes by Smoove, Skeewiff, The Pinker Tones, Cubismo Grafico, Groove Allegiance a.o.) while their albums “Headache Music” and “Cum On Feel The Boyz” were released in Europe and North America. Further official album releases followed in Russia, Ukraine, Kazakhstan and Belarus. Well, that also doesn’t happen to everyone.

BUT the Torpedo Boyz are far from just being a club music producer team. The fact that they have managed to put their funky music live on stage is surely exceptional in this genre. With their incredible live show and outfits they left their audiences in disbelief with open mouths and hands way up in the air. But they really are hard to catch on stage these days due to the fact that they have decided to only play special events. So far they did exactly that in the USA, Canada, Russia and selected European cities. In 2009 the Torpedo Boyz played their first shows in Asia with more dates to follow.

The new record "Return Of The Ausländers" (US release: 2011) once again defies expectations, bringing in new sounds—like Returner’s Krautrock influenced “Maschinenwelt” and Daisuke’s exposing “Ich bin Ausländer” (“I’m a Foreigner”). It’s an upbeat, breaktastic record ready to get the party started on your block—whether your block is in Brooklyn, Bristol, or Beijing
