Their first single, "Chase the Sun," reached number five on the UK Singles Chart in 2001 and has become a cult song among darts and football fans, due to its use during professional tournaments and games (in football, particularly with Sheffield Wednesday and Reading F.C.). Their second and third singles also gained significant commercial success. "Inside All the People" reached no. 9 in the Italian singles charts and "Who Said (Stuck In The UK)" reached no.36 in the UK singles charts.

In May 2006, Planet Funk 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 also recently released the single, "Lemonade," which has since been remixed by famed Italian Producer and DJ Benny Benassi.

Planet Funk's 5th studio album, The Great Shake, was released in the UK in October 2011. The band are currently on tour promoting it throughout Italy.

Aside from producing their own music, Planet Funk are also talented remixers and collaborators. They have remixed a variety of music, including New Order's "Waiting for the Sirens' Call," and have also collaborated on the single "Weightless" with Swedish artist Emilia de Poret.
