The Beatfreakz is a Dutch house group, consisting of members Errol Lafleur and Mark Simmons.

The group's first big hit was a song making prominent use of a sample from Rockwell's hit "Somebody's Watching Me". Instead of using the original voice of Rockwell aka Kenneth Gordy, they used the voice of Dennis Delano a Dutch singer. The song peaked at #3 in the UK Singles Chart in May 2006 and peaked at #21 in the Dutch Top 100. It peaked at #28 in the Belgium UltraTop 50 and peaked at #38 in Australia. It also peaked at #41 in the German Chart. The video was a parody of Michael Jackson's hit Thriller.

The band released the follow-up track "Superfreak", a Rick James remix on October 16, 2006.

They revealed exclusively on BBC Radio 1's Chart Show on October 15, 2006, that their next project was likely to be a remix of the Ghostbusters theme tune, original from Ray Parker Jr. This track was previewed at the Matinee closing party in Ibiza on September 30, 2006.

Another song of theirs is released on the Put Your Hands Up! 2 compilation, a remake of Aerosmith's Walk This Way.
