Biography

Nuremberg, Germany (1998 – present)

Tommy Yamaha and Martin Kaisa are The Strike Boys and as such they have never been friends of one-dimensional grooves. Their homebase is the marvelous club “Der Hirsch” (The Deer) in Nuremberg, Germany.

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.

The Strike Boys are also on MySpace.
