Return Of The Auslanders

A 10 track leftfield/idm album (44m ) — released May 24th 2010 on Lounge
Berlin is not a place where things happen according to the normal rules. And Berlin's Torpedo Boyz - winners of the 2009 Independent Music Award for best dance/electronica album for Cum On Feel the Boyz - are proof of that. It all began in 2004 with the rowdy, rambunctious "Gimme a Bassline!" Initially released as a one-off 12-inch, the track immediately struck a chord. New York's Ursula 1000 included it on his Ursadelica compilation, Puma snapped up the tune for a major TV campaign. Suddenly everyone wanted a piece of the Torpedo Boyz: and Fort Knox Five volunteered to remix the next single. Then as the ideas continued to flow, artists from Smoove, Skeewiff, and the Pinker Tones to Cubismo Grafico and Groove Allegiance lined up to re-rub a series of hit 12-inches, including "Are You Talking To Me???" and "Japaneeze Boyz". Their infectious energy and zany outfits helped take the phenomenon to the next level. In rejecting the rules of electronic-production-duo-by-the-numbers, the Boyz won over audiences everywhere they played, from Los Angeles to Canada's Whistler to Moscow and in legendary Berlin venues like Tresor. Word of their incredible live show spread, and in 2009 the band was invited to tour China and Spain. Now we have Torpedo Boyz' third album, Return of the Auslanders. The title is a rye comment on the Boyz' all-encompassing philosophy, with their lyrics in Japanese, English and German, and their musical miscegeny blurring borders between genres. It includes the singles "Back To The Beatz" and "Welcome To The Sugar Show" (soon available in a Lack Of Afro remix). The new record is bringing in new sounds - like Returner's Krautrock influenced "Maschinenwelt". Davey Woodward from the Experimental Pop Band turns up on "That Is So Beautiful", in "Fat Man's Walk" Returner celebrates a liberating rejoinder to Randy Newman's "Short People". "Return Of The Auslanders" is an upbeat, breaktastic record ready to get the party started on your block - whether your block is in Brooklyn, Bristol, or Beijing.
