Loss Of The Badman
12"
Release Date: 19.06.2006

The Strike Boys

Tommy Yamaha and Martin Kaisa are back on the block. The newest single release out of their album „Being In A Boygroup“ provides once again the finest electro-funk-food for the Clubs.

„Loss Of The Badman“ made by The Strike Boys is highly impressive by it’s dirty guitar-riffs and catchy melodies, which are really drilling into your ears. Together with a rhythm that makes your legs want to dance within seconds involuntarily, it is a nearly hypnotic mix that will be served by many DJs to let the crowd freak out.
This track is not just another „OneNightStand-ClubHit“.

”Loss Of The Badman“ wil also be part of the new MINI (BMW) campaign.

The second stroke of genius from The Strike Boys on the12” is called „Heart On Fire“. This ultra – danceable „Bass-Bomb“ is garnished with nice vocals from Tommy Yamaha himself. Besides the original versions there are two exclusive remixes on the 12“:

The first one is from „Malente“ (Unique Records), the worldwide acting DJ and Producer, who already made remixes for artists like Louie Austen, DJ Friction, Groove Rebels, Thomilla, Bob Sinclar, Monosourround, Rocko Schamoni, Le Hammond Inferno to name just a few. „Malente“ shows with his version of „Heart On Fire“, that there are still some producers (unfortunately an exception), who handle a remix with the same care as if it was one of their own tracks, not only wanting the quick credibility.

Remix No. 2 is an extraordinary cover from the very successful band „Kate Mosh“ from Berlin who recently finished their sold-out club-tour. This version transports „Heart On Fire“ up to the Indie-Pop-Rock-Style and is proving, that this track even works with handplayed instruments.

Being in a Boygroup
CD SD139
DLP 139-3
Release Date: 19.06.2006

Tommy Yamaha and Martin Kaisa are The Strike Boys and as such they have never been friends of one-dimensional grooves. Already their magnificent eclectic debut “Selected Funks” (which was released on the ground breaking breakbeat label Wall of Sound in 1998) leads from old school electro to digital-dub and soul/funk. A mixture in which they combine superb guest-vocals that transform their tracks into catchy hits with fresh melodic style. Since then they kept their mix of genres as a trademark. Also on their second album “Grapefruit Flavoured GreenTea Time” and on their last masterpiece “Playtime” The Strike Boys stroke against any border and so they fuse reggae, funk, breakbeat, house and electro in their unique way. The roots of their tracks have been mostly dub, with heavy hitting bass pressure that gives a kind of signature to the two boys from Nuremberg. For this, the club goers love them all around the planet from China to America. Their singles went to the top of the dance charts in diverse countrys and their remixes for artists like Bounty Killer, Tom Jones or Carl Douglas showed how well they can work an original sound into a inimitable Strike-Boys-Tune.

Now the South-German studio nerds catch new adventures with their fresh album “Being In A Boygroup”. Firstly, they almost dropped their trademark of dub. But why look back when the future already is perfectly written? Now they don’t tranquilize with dub, but they fire the dance floor with synthetic beats, dirty indie rock-hooks, rough screams and cool digital grooves. For this they write POP in big letters and even Strike Boy, Tommy Yamaha, for the first time in the long history of the duo, grabs the mic. But it is not only his timbre that elevates the compact energising tracks to something more then just an ordinary functional club track. Also guests like Thomas Lang, singer of the German indie rock sensation The Robocop Kraus, Earl Zinger (the man also known as Rob Galliano) and Chris Corner, charismatic front man of IAmX, transform the tunes with their vocals to songs that last longer than a club season. All this on top of a wild mixture of rhythms winding between disco, electro, house, rock and even a little reggae-riddim.

As a boy-group you should have more then one facet to keep your style fresh and irresistible. This is now the fourth time that The Strike Boys have achieved this in their own eclectic modern musical language.

Playtime
CD SD 113-2
Release Date: 09.02.2004

On the third album “Playtime” Tommy and Martin take it all another step further. Of course conceptionally staying close to the “eclectic” Strike Boys Style of the second album, but also showing how they have moved forward technically and artistically. This is immediately evident from the very beginning on the opening “Playtime Theme” full of groove and deep-bass. The Strike Boys don’t just stand by an uninteresting mix of beats, klicks, beeps and samples like so many others. The Strike Boys through “Playtime” want to communicate through a common languge a story of organic grooves…The Boys want that the listner feel tickled all over from head to toe. Stimulating allover with a blend of pure groove, funk, electro dub and soul.

The artist collaboratins on “Playtime” are by no means accidental or unplanned. “i am a witness” hails Danish Soul-Reggae-Dub sensation “EMO” straight from the Stereo Deluxe family who understands with ease the nonchalant vibe The Strike Boys personify.
“everybody” and “free” take us by surprise with a fine mixture toastin, rap and featuring “MC Blaze”, we experience a lucious journey through a top stylee blend of Dub-Dancehall, Breakbeat & House. “MC Blaze”, a deservedly confident 21 year old is truly astounding and makes herself heard. Pulling the listner further in, as she has already proved time again with Roni Size or the indigenous “Ninja Tune” formation “Up, Bustle and Out”.

Eddie Green who also appeared on “Grapefruit Flavoured Gree Tea Time” with his distinctive souly vocals, contributes once again on “it’s on you” souly vocals and a distinctive funky Breakbeat, which must be a real club hit in anyones book.

Last but by no means least Cyrena Dunbar. Cyrena hails from Calgary and completed her studies at the Alberta Ballet School of Dance.and now is a member of the Ballet Nuernberg. More known then for her dancing abilities takes us all by surprise with her beautiful vocals on “find my way” and “outer space”. This young lady has a great future.

Ladies and Gentlemen….IT'S PLAYTIME

grapefruit flavoured green tea time
CD SD 113-2
Release Date: 02.04.2002

One, two, strike! Ladies and gentlemen, here are the STRIKE BOYS. Wheeling and dealing, moving and grooving, this polyphonic funkster duo will blow your whistle. The STRIKE BOYS second album "Grapefruit Flavoured Green Tea Time" has it all: brazil type rockers, soulful boogie shakers, smooth house tunes, laidback downtempo fluffies and much much more.

It´s like on a perfect night out in a club where a fabulous eclectic DJ takes you on a musical journey through vibe music. The wide range of flavours on "Grapefruit Flavoured Green Tea Time" comes deep from the heart. You´ll hear that STRIKE BOYS members Tommy Yamaha and Martin Kaiser have been making music since quite a while. In fact, it´s been more than a decade.

Martin Kaiser learned violin and played guitar in an indie band in the 80s, Tommy Yamaha has been DJ’ing since the late 80s. They met for the first time in 1990 and in 1994 the two released their first jointly produced singles. Under various monikers they´ve put out a diverse range of releases from rocking rave tunes to dope breaks in various shapes.Yes, call them versatile, the STRIKE BOYS know no boundaries and no stylistic limits.

Today, the STRIKE BOYS, hailing from the Northern Bavarian town of Nuremberg (where we from Stereo Deluxe are also located at) look back to an impressive set of releases. Most prominently were their releases on UKs No.1 breakbeat label Wall Of Sound, notably the "Selected Funks" album and a few singles that received huge critical acclaim from magazines such as "Muzik", "DJ" and "Mixmag", and were all a big success in the UK and abroad.

("There are gems to be had for DJ’s though." DJ-Magazine, "The Strike Boys stay on course, because they understand that the best funk is about the waist down." Muzik).

While their first album featured a more electronic edge, for their new album "Grapefruit Flavoured Green Tea Time" the STRIKE BOYS turned to a more funky and eclectic sound.
