Their style also mixes elements of reggae, hip hop and rock. The band's current line-up features Rik Carey, Dyson Knight, Anthony Flowers, Jeffery Chea and Patrick Carey, while past members have been Marvin Prosper and Nehemiah Hield. The band's most notable mainstream success was their 2000 single 'Who Let the Dogs Out', a song which has become huge worldwide, especially in America, and is often used at sporting events. 'Move It Like This' is the band's seventh studio album, and was released in 2002 on S-Curve records.
