The Basement Boys is an American house-music production team that was formed in Baltimore, Maryland. The founding members, Jay Steinhour, Teddy Douglas, and Thommy Davis, all of whom had experience as deejays in the Mid-Atlantic states, began producing together in 1986.[1] In 1988, the group scored a hit single together with "Love Don't Live Here Anymore," which hit #25 on the U.S. Dance Club Play and #31 on the Maxi-Singles charts.[2] In 1989, Davis left the group and DJ Spen joined. Karizma was also a member of the group during the mid-to-late 1990s.

The group would go on to remix or produce artists such as Paula Abdul, Michael Jackson, Erykah Badu, Bob Sinclar, Crystal Waters, and Ultra Naté, and began its own record label, Basement Boys Records, in 1994.[3] In 2006, the group released an album titled The Basement Boys Present Mudfoot Jones, which was a collection of remixes of songs by a fictional drummer.

The group's only chart entry in the UK Singles Chart occurred in February 1991, presenting Ultra Naté, on "Is It Love?" (UK #71).[4]
