    Check out BBOSS's ""Remembered"" in the new Lionsgate movie "SET UP", staring 50 Cent, Bruce Willis and Ryan Phillippe. We were excited to see how well "Remembered" was featured in the closing scene during 50's closing monologue and over the credits. Huge thanks to the guys at Lionsgate of the awesome placement. If you're wondering how to get that version of the song, with rapper Class making a guest appearance over the original track, check out the BBOSS debut album, in stores later this month. SET UP is available on BluRay and on iTunes streaming, as well as most video sites.

    Battle of the Bands: Toy Biz edition! Congratulations are in order to our friends in the Mattel band "The Toys" who just won 3rd place in the Fortune Battle of the Bands at the Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame. Well done guys. Just don't get too comfy with the title of "Hardest Rocking Band in the Toy Biz" yet. BBOSS is throwing down the gauntlet and has The Toys to play a double-billed set with BBOSS at our Toy Fair party in NYC in February. The challenge has been issued, and we're just waiting to work out the details and negotiate the artist riders.

Huge thanks to the fans out there who ripped the song from SETUP on their own and uploaded it on YouTube. Amazing to see over 75,000 combined hits in just a couple of weeks for what was just the track playing over a black screen. Stay tuned and check back soon

BBOSS BBio

About us

In the BBOSS world, ninjas can get a table dance — and musicians can be superheroes.

It’s a world of imagination, forward thinking,state-of-the-art creations and fun. As it says on the band’s self-titled album’s intro song, “Welcome To BBoss,” — “I think you’re gonna like it here.”

From the slamming mixed martial seduction of “Kung Fu Yu” to the rap bravado reworking of ZZ Top’s “Sharp Dressed Man,” heart-tugging soulful ballad “Remembered” and spooky atmospheric kill-rhetoric “Halloween,” BBOSS is children’s theme park meets high-roller underworld.

The brainchild of multi-instrumentalists Benny V and Ben Dermer, BBOSS is a rap-injected,groove-infected electro-buzzed pop band created with no samples whatsoever.“Every note you hear is us,” says Benny V.

The pair also pushes the boundaries of traditional marketing. They can be seen on the album cover as robotic superheroes, a fantasy for most people, but Benny V and Ben D actually have the connections and know-how to make their boyhood fantasies come to life — as much as humanly possible.

“We live in the toy world,” explains Benny V. “So we’re combining music with a little bit of toys.”

Ben is the co-founder of international multi-million-dollar toy company Spin Master and Ben D works alongside him in their Toronto headquarters. Together, the pair have “A&R-ed” about 40,000 toys. If that doesn’t keep you young, juvenile and creative, nothing will. Their Hong Kong office is a short walkfrom the Disney World of brothels, Big Boss Gentleman’s Club, from which they get their name.

But BBOSS is not a faceless cartoon band that performs behind a curtain or with videos. This is a legit live entity.

On the 13-song BBOSS album, the duo wrote all the songs and played every instrument, and brought in rapper Chris Warner Coburn as the main vocalist and singer Suzie Vinnick as the go-to-girl. Other guests include Jennifer Foster, Claudia Coco, Rafael Kuerti, Patria, Jamie Seriux, Trish, Adrian Weekes and Our Lady Peace bassist Duncan Coutts.

Co-producers with Scotty Lake and Zee Al-Hillal, the album was recorded at Benny V’s state-of-the-art home studio, Subterranean Sound, an old-school analog set up with 14-foot Trident console and tons of outboard gear. “The greatest thing about doing this is doing it on our own terms,” says Benny V.

“These songs have so much love in them, so much agony in them, so much focus to detail and the sound quality, we used the best ear that money could buy. Even though no one cares about sonics and they listen on their MP3, we wanted it to sound like it came out of Abbey Road and we approached it like that.

“I got so emotional there,” he suddenly says. “Did you get a tingle?” That’s so BBOSS. Sounds like a line for a future song.
