The Boomtang Boys
|Origin||Toronto, Ontario, Canada|
The Boomtang Boys are a trio of Canadian dance-remix musicians and music producers. They are known for both their remix work and pop-dance music, for their hit single "Squeeze Toy", and for "The Hampsterdance Song" from 2000.
The Boomtang Boys first came together in 1991 as a music production group. The group created dance-friendly remixes of familiar songs, as well as producing music for a number of musicians and bands, including the Juno-awarded Deeper Shade of Love by Camille.
Their debut album, Greatest Hits Volume One, was released in 1999, and produced the hit "Squeeze Toy" as well as "Pictures", both performed by Kim Esty. Greatest Hits did well in Canada, achieving gold status in sales. The single "Popcorn" appeared on the RPM Dance charts in 1999.
In addition to their own recordings they are known for several remixes, for artists such as Bif Naked, Econoline Crush and Kim Stockwood. The trio is still active and is involved in a number of production and remix projects.
Members Tony Grace and Rob DeBoer also tour internationally as the jazz ensemble Four80East.
