Planet Booty is probably not what you think it is. If you haven't yet experienced the infectious power of their live shows, or danced and sweated along with these six impressively talented musicians, or felt the intense, penetrating gaze of frontman Dylan Charles Germick as he begs you, in all sincerity, to love yourself no matter what… then you don't quite have the full picture yet.
The resulting sound is a smart and playful blend of electronic dance music with live instrumentation, all serving a simple obsession with spreading joy, making asses shake, and cultivating the positive self images of its followers. Having developed a cult-like live following in the Bay Area, the band has steadily toured up and down the West coast for the last three years. They've gained a reputation for pushing each show to the limit, especially at shows closer to home, where they will often add additional singers, dancers, and horn sections to up the ante and keep it fresh.In between live performances, the group has kept up an ambitious stream of self-produced, freely available online content including their 2009 full length album "Planet Booty", their 2012 EP "Success", six self-produced music videos and dozens of ambitiously zany-yet-endearing promotional video shorts. Planet Booty's highly-anticipated forthcoming LP "FUTURESWEAT" will be released October 7, 2014 on the Aerobic International label. The album release will be supported by a Fall 2014 West Coast tour.
