TOKYO MACHINE is the result of a personality influenced by Japanese culture and video
games colliding head-on with energetic, bombastic EDM beats. TOKYO MACHINE has quickly
grown to become one of the most recognizable personas in dance music, DJing on some of the
scene’s most coveted stages and garnering millions upon millions of streams.
TOKYO MACHINE mysteriously emerged onto the scene in July of 2016 with the
chiptune-infused bass house slapper “PARTY,” which gained the attention of Monstercat
fanatics and blogs alike. The producer quickly followed up on the success of “PARTY” with
equally wild singles throughout the remainder of the year, including the viral breakbeat slammer
2017 would prove to be an even bigger year for TOKYO MACHINE, taking his video game
influences to a whole new level when he was commissioned to produce a new theme for Rocket
League. “ROCK IT” spearheaded Monstercat’s collaborative album with the video game and
went on to become one of TOKYO MACHINE’s most widely beloved works. Less than a month
after the song’s release, TOKYO MACHINE made his full-scale live debut at EDC.
In 2018, TOKYO MACHINE embarked on his first North American live tour, which served as the
general public’s opportunity to see that TOKYO MACHINE wasn’t just a cutesy cartoon
musician, but also a lively DJ who could throw down a ridiculously heavy set. The DJ’s distinct
stage wear has also allowed him to gain significant traction within the cosplay community.
2018 also saw TOKYO MACHINE make his debut at the world’s largest EDM festival,
Tomorrowland. He also played a homecoming show in Tokyo and embarked on a mini-tour in
China that same year, in addition to producing another song for Rocket League and having
“HYPE” featured in Just Shapes & Beats. From there, TOKYO MACHINE has not ceased growing and moving forward, as the producer
has continued to consistently release fun, thematic tunes throughout recent months (such as the
Beat Saber-featured “EPIC” and “MOSHI” with Pegboard Nerds).
The future looks bright for TOKYO MACHINE as he prepares for a return to ADE, a second
North American tour with Monstercat and a highly-anticipated collaboration with Slushii. Get
ready to join TOKYO MACHINE, ROBO-CHAN and the rest of the TOKI-CREW on a flight to the
stars, because this rocket isn’t slowing down any time soon.
