SUPAFLY (also known as Supafly Inc.) is a British dance act composed of Panos Liassi (Mister P) and Andrew Tumi (wOne).

Musical career[edit]

Supafly is best known for 2005's "Let's Get Down" - which was a club hit around the world and used by the Australian television network FOX8 as their summer theme song; and for "Moving Too Fast" in late 2006, which sampled from the Phil Collins' hit "Another Day in Paradise". Supafly picked up the Best Newcomer Award at the 2006 Urban Music Awards.[1]

Supafly's sound is a blend of reggae/hip hop/ and dance. Supafly's success has led them to sold out tours, performing to crowds of up to 25,000.[1]

Now London based, the essence of their sun-filled sound developed partly from Mister P and wOne’s stint in Australia. Inspired by the sunshine and the live music scene in Melbourne, their time away proved to be an inspiration for Supafly's signature tune, "Let's Get Down". It was written on one of the hottest days in Australia's history.[2]

wOne[edit]

wOne is an accomplished singer, songwriter and producer. He has collaborated on several seminal dance hits and enjoyed a successful career with Supafly spanning more than ten years. wOne is currently in Ghana, West Africa exploring his musical roots and working on a new concept that fuses music and creativity to aid African development.

Mister P[edit]

Mister P (Panos Liassi) was involved in the production of the singles: "Passion", Amen UK; "Ripped in 2 Minutes" A Vs B; "Lover" (featuring Rachel MacFarlane), "Let's Get Down" Supafly Inc; "Moving Too Fast" Supafly Inc; and "Pleasure Love" De Funk. In the 1990s, he worked with a Homeboy Hippie and Funky Dread and was part of "Project One" "Blu Room" "Rated Pg" "London Fiesta" & "Apollo". Mister P produced some house and jungle/drum and bass tracks during this time, usually with collaborators. He went on to claim credit as the man behind acts such as: Amen UK (Positiva Records), De Funk Sony, A vs. B Positiva, and co-produced "Pacjam" Eye Industries.
