New MPEG-7: “Tokyo Neon”

Tokyo’s MPEG-7 has recently been creating tracks leaning more on the beat side of things, which while sounding fine also come off like they are lacking something. They sound like a frame looking for one final piece to complete it (mainly: vocals). “Tokyo Neon” isn’t the same case. While clearly influenced by the hazy vibe of vaporwave (see: artwork), MPEG-7 creates a track that manages to stand on its own, full of sudden horn blasts and various tempo changes. It’s part menacing, part intoxicating. And most importantly, it works on its own. Listen below, or get it here.
