Seeing as I’m new to this Japanese music world, I hope you’ll forgive me for hyping up an artist whose latest album came out back in May. 80kidz are an electronic trio making music in the Kitsune/Ed Banger style, but often more poppy than hard. There album This Is My Shit never sags over its hour-plus run time. Check the poptastic standout track “Getting You Off” below, featuring Chicago electro duo Hey Champ on vocals.
The group’s also know for its remix work. Check out their reworking of Lykke Li’s “Dance Dance Dance.”
