LMFAO is a dance and electronic music duo consisting of DJs Redfoo and SkyBlu.

LMFAO's sophomore set, "Sorry for Party Rocking" (Party Rock/will.i.am/ Cherrytree/Interscope), was certified gold in early 2012 and is quickly approaching platinum. The album has produced two #1 singles, "Party Rock Anthem" and "Sexy and I Know It." LMFAO's videos combined have seen over 950 million views on VEVO. "Party Rock Anthem" has surpassed 13.5 million units in total sales worldwide and was the #2 top selling song of 2011 on iTunes in the U.S. behind Adele's "Rolling in the Deep," and it was the #1 selling song on iTunes in the UK, Canada, New Zealand, Australia, Denmark, Norway, Finland and Sweden.

Their music has been licensed by movie and television shows, including 20th Century Fox's holiday hit, "Chipwrecked," FOX's "Glee" and "Touch," Universal Pictures' "American Reunion" and the top charting game "Just Dance 3." LMFAO has performed on numerous television shows, including "Dancing with the Stars," "So You Think You Can Dance," "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno," "Good Morning America," "The American Music Awards" and "Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve with Ryan Seacrest," and Redfoo and Sky Blu have shared the stage with Madonna at the Bridgestone Super Bowl Halftime Show.

The duo is without question having fun, celebrating their successes by partying to the seriously infectious dance songs they have created, which prove as irresistible to radio as they do to DJs in clubs worldwide.

According to Redfoo, the duo are more than dance/pop music creators ... they are scientific spinsters of a carefully crafted soundtrack for a new generation of global party people. With LMFAO's debut and Grammy nominated full length record, 2009's "Party Rock," Redfoo showcased a new breed of music that now appeals to radio programmers worldwide.

Redfoo and Sky Blu's career began in earnest five years ago after their now club staple anthem "I'm In Miami, Bitch" bubbled up from the underground club scene and caught the attention of Interscope Records via the Black Eyed Peas' will.i.am (interesting fact: Redfoo and will.i.am are childhood friends, and Foo produced the Pea's first demo in his home studio!)

But no one can say LMFAO's success was accidental … both men have been driven for years, and passionate about music since their early teens.

Foo and Sky have created an entire record of rap-infused party rock anthems for their forthcoming Insterscope album, which will likely ignite dance floors from Sydney to Stockholm and all points between. From the driving, propulsive, acid-house-tinged hip-hop of "I'm Sexy and I Know It," to the sugar-soaked, synth-laden VIP anthem "Champagne Showers," LMFAO furthers the global wave of crossover club smashes with their unique twists on this forthcoming album, which is sure to please fans well into 2012.

The duo's hard work has rewarded music fans with exactly what they wanted — LMFAO's "Party Rock" boasted four hit singles "I'm In Miami Bitch," "Yes," "La La La," and "Shots," all of which sold over 4 million singles, and the duo was rewarded with a nomination for Best Dance/Electronic Album at the 52nd Annual Grammy Awards.

The success of their debut only furthered the boys' drive to craft epic party anthems, and today in the studio process, the goal is nothing less than sonic domination in clubs and on the radio.

Redfoo's sweat equity behind his public party persona is paying off. The producer has two killer Kanye West remixes under his belt, he recently produced a song on Pitbull's new record, and his independent songs effortlessly tap into a new party zeitgeist. "There are no rules in dance music," he says of LMFAO's unique brand of fun-inciting anthems for radio and clubs. "It doesn't matter if you're rich or poor…'party' is a whole genre that everyone was discounting, but that's all we want to do," Redfoo asserts. "Who wouldn't want to be at a great party with sexy people?"

LMFAO is creating the soundtrack for that party with their music, they are dressing it with their "Party Rock" clothing line, and now they are taking it international with their tours and epic DJ sets. And "Sorry for Party Rocking" promises to embody this ultimate party when it's released as LMFAO's next installment of their global invitation to the world to "just have a good time."
