â€žGimme A Bassline!â€œ, their funky and infectious first single with an incredible dancefloor action effect, scored a # 5 position in the German Club Charts (DCC) while hitting top DJ playlist around the globe. Ursula 1000 put this track on his â€œUrsuladelicâ€ compilation, en vogue producers Fort Knox Five from Washington D.C. offered their remix services and PUMA featured the song on their MTV commercial.
In no time their hit â€œAre You Talking To Me???â€ with mind-blowing remixes by Fort Knox Five and UK producer wizzards Skeewiff (London/UK) set the spotlight straight onto the Torpedo Boyz.
Meanwhile food giant NestlÃ© got knocked out by their wicked album track â€œAny Trash Professor Abacus?â€œ which is still being used for the current Cheerios tv ad â€œSmiles All Aroundâ€ in England, Ireland, Finnland and Australia.
In Down Under â€œAre You Talking To Me???â€ received massive radio airplay and ended up on various heavy rotation lists. Italian prime time tv show â€œLe Ieneâ€ have borrowed a couple Torpedo Boyz tracks for their game show jingles and the magazine English24 is still featuring â€œAre You Talking To Me???â€ for their current tv spot.
Kentastic got invitations as a DJ from around the globe and was asked to spread the word of Torpedo funkyness. He made people shake their butts in Barcelona, Warsaw, Vienna, Tokyo, San Francisco, St.Petersburg, Amsterdam, Zurich as well as in New York or Budapest. Spinning the funkiest breaks, fattest beats and grooviest basslines with a fine sense for tasty music, Kentastic has gained international respect.
BUT the Torpedo Boyz are far from just being DJs or club music producers. The fact that they have managed to put their funky music live on stage is surely exceptional in their music scene.
The Torpedo Boyz 5-piece live band travels with an international line-up featuring ODD (Japan) and Returner (Cuba).
With their incredible live show they left their audiences in disbelief with open mouths and hands in the air. .
In 2008 Kentastic is scheduled to spin his records in Portugal, Italy, Greece and the USA and the Torpedo Boyz live band will play a few selected European shows before hitting the festival season in summer!
