Tokyo Machine teams up with Indonesia’s leading electronic trio, Weird Genius, and pop super power Lights, on their infectious new single, “Last Summer,” out now via Monstercat. The feel-good slice of electro-pop effortlessly combines each of their unique styles, from nostalgic 8-bit sounds to powerful earworm lyricism and internationally-inspired flavors.
“Last Summer” is a very catchy production and features light plucked synths, smooth chords, and a bitter-sweet top line from Lights that smoothly brings the instrumental together. The production also features tasteful synth one-shots and quick harp and synth arpeggios keeping the song moving.
“Ever since I saw weird genius play their set at ocean meets music, I knew I want to work with their insane talent. Lights vocals put the cherry on top for this record, to be able to team up with both of them is a dream and I’m so excited for everyone to be able to hear our collaboration!” – Tokyo Machine
“We’ve been fans of TM’s works since his early releases like ‘Pixel’ and he actually influenced some of our productions. His blend of heavy bass and catchy chiptune melodies made him really stand out amongst the waves of bass music producers. Needless to say, we were really stoked when he reached out to us, as we have had demos that would fit perfectly with his style. For this collab, we wanted to make something that perfectly expresses our signature sounds but is presented as a catchy pop tune. We had lots of fun making this track and we hope you guys enjoy it!” – Weird Genius
When it comes to electronic music in Southeast Asia, Weird Genius are one of today’s most influential tastemakers. The talented trio has catapulted to the top of the charts, breaking records with their #1 single “LATHI”, reaching 1.5M monthly listeners in just a year, and crafting all-star collabs with notable names like Lil Baby, Yellow Claw, Rich Brian, among others.
“There was something sweet about the track, sweet enough that it could almost be sad. So I wrote something bittersweet because everything sweet needs some bitter. The past year has made a lot of us look back on better times, for better or for worse. Here’s one of mine.” – Lights
Tokyo Machine’s eccentric personality and live performance energy has earned him global tours, a fiercely dedicated TOKI-CREW, and over 50M streams to date. Returning to Monstercat in his fifth year on the label, he’s a fan-favorite producer and a force to be reckoned with.
Following last month’s massive release “Hearts on Fire” with Illenium and her platinum minted, dance-smash “Love Me” with Felix Cartal, Canadian alt-pop star Lights makes her Monstercat debut with her infectious vocals on “Last Summer.” The cosplay-loving, certified, 4x JUNO Award winner has featured on chart-topping tracks with headline artists across the electronic and rock spaces including deadmau5, Bring Me The Horizon, Travis Barker, and recently, an EP with the beloved late i_o.
