Tokyo ON In The Mix: NEO TOKYO GAIDEN
When imagining the future, artists often look to Tokyo as a source of inspiration. A technologically advanced metropolis, highly structured and driven by mass consumerism.
The genres of future funk, vaporwave and filter house often sample Japanese pop music then alter and loop it to create a futuristic sound that is immediately accessible, shiny and fun yet artificial and robotic, with humanity hidden beneath the layers of filters.
This is a 20 minute sampler of these genres with a focus on J-Pop, mixed by Maction Planet resident DJ Royce Leong.
