Always when Bomfunk MC's perform on stage they have their own regular break dance crew with them. The members of the crew are T-Flo a.k.a Taija Hinkkanen, Niro a.ka. Janne Ratinen and Wartecs a.k.a Mikko Björk. These food workers are the part of the popular Finnish Savage Feed break dance family. Other known members from the crew are b-boys: Lil'p, D'Maestre, Jaylo, Elastinen (Fintelligens) and Uniikki (Kapasiteettiyksikkö).

In the beginning crew's first name was Illmatic-crew. The official Savage Feed was founded over 4 years ago. On the stage the crew present own style and the street culture of break dance. Naturally they also develop something new all the time. Every performance is some kind of journey to fantasies of break dance world.
