A significant signpost in an emerging genre combining the palette of the laptop producer with hip-hop and rock, Boom Bip went one further and turned Seed To Sun into a four piece live band, performing at Glastonbury, Dedbeat Festival in Rome, London's Ether Festival, and the Pompidou Centre in Paris, just to name a few.

 Power Rangers: Boom - TV.com
Boom's lies to his parents about having not dropped out of SPD training, and leading them to believe he's the one and only Orange Ranger, comes back to haunt him when they come for a visit!
Boom, who tries repeatedly to avoid having to "become" a Ranger, manages to come up with his makeshift Orange Ranger costume in mere minutes (if he had the costume prepared prior, he should've been less inclined not to wear it), not to mention gets back to the Academy in record time to retrieve it.
The music during the "training scene" with Boom is intentionally reminiscent of the theme from the movie, "Rocky".
