You can't say Monstercat these days without saying two names: Tokyo Machine and Pegboard Nerds. Respectively, both hold a large following and with such similar sounds and themes, it's a wonder they haven't collaborated sooner. Now, they've teamed up for a quirky and fun new single entitled "MOSHI"—an instant chiptune wonder that will surely throw you back for a loop in time.
"MOSHI" is everything you'd expect from Tokyo Machine; the 8-bit-infused single hooks one in instantaneously with game-inspired nostalgia, intricately woven throughout each build and drop of the track for a guaranteed funky experience. Akin to classic Japanese arcade games, both Tokyo Machine and Pegboard Nerds confidently side-step through each level of the track, with Pegboard Nerds swinging in hot at the drop, melding a gritty bass line with an electro-tinged beat for added emphasis. The Monstercat family once again showcases their talent, leaving an indelible impression on listeners.
Tokyo Machine is a moniker with a unique brand of EDM that combines endearing Japan-infused 8-bit sounds with vicious, heavy bass lines.
