Boom Boom Satellites - THE BEST


BOOM BOOM SATELLITES (ブンブンサテライツ, Bun Bun Sateraitsu) are a Japanese electronic music duo consisting of Michiyuki Kawashima and Masayuki Nakano. While their music can be mostly classified as big beat or nu skool breaks, and they are heavily influenced by jazz, they are famous for using a lot of electric guitars and the final product often has a strong rock or punk flavor. In 2004, they contributed numerous songs to the soundtrack of the anime film Appleseed, in the 2007 anime film Vexille, and most recently in the Playstation store exclusive anime series Xam'd: Lost Memories. They are currently signed to Sony Music Entertainment Japan, with whom they have released all of their albums in Japan.

The BOOM BOOM SATELLITES' sixth full length studio album, EXPOSED was released on November 21, 2007. "WHAT GOES AROUND COMES AROUND" (which has been featured in a commercial for Dodge) and "EASY ACTION" (which is featured in the film Vexille) are two of the songs featured on this album.[1] The fourth track from this album, "SHUT UP AND EXPLODE", is the PSN version opening theme to the anime Xam'd: Lost Memories (亡念のザムド, Bōnen no Zamudo).

The track "SCATTERIN' MONKEY", from their 1999 album OUTLOUD, is featured in the 2008 film The Dark Knight during a club scene involving Salvatore Maroni.

Their newest single "BACK ON MY FEET" is currently used as one of the opening themes for Xam'd's terrestrial broadcast alongside "SHUT UP AND EXPLODE".
