Planet Funk is an Italian electronic dance musical ensemble. Members are Sergio Della Monica, Alex Neri, Domenico GG Canu, Marco Baroni, and Alessandro Sommella (the Ghost extra member), in addition to a series of guest singers in collaboration, like Dan Black, Sally Doherty, Raiz and John Graham.

Their first single, “Chase the Sun”, reached number five on the UK Singles Chart in 2001. The song has enjoyed a rise in popularity ever since Sky Sports began using it during its coverage of the Professional Darts Corporation’s major tournaments. The crowds in the venues are encouraged to chant and sing along to the song during the commercial breaks of matches, and the song has a cult following amongst darts fans. The song is also known to be chanted by supporters, at the games of Australian football club, Newcastle Jets. The Melbourne spring racing carnival used the song during promotional TV advertisements during the mid to late 2000s. Their second single, “Inside All the People”, reached no. 9 in the Italian singles charts, but did better on the European dance charts. Their third single was “Who Said (Stuck In The UK)” which also gained significant commercial success. Their 2007 single release, “Static”, appeared on FIFA 08. They are also remixers, with their highest-profile work to date being New Order’s “Waiting for the Sirens’ Call”. In May 2006 they became the first musical group to release a single exclusively as a mobile phone download, with the release of “Stop Me” on the mobile network 3. They have recently released the single, “Lemonade”, which will feature on their new album.
