New Tofubeats: “Keep Me Up”

Perhaps because I was trying to ignore anything having to do with SOPHIE’s recent set of shows in Japan over the past weekend — because I would have gone but I had a prior engagement the day after and I’m now too old a human to stay out all night AND function properly afterwards — but I missed that Tofubeats shared “Keep Me Up,” a clanging techno number that he presumably played during the Osaka leg of SOPHIE’s tour. Well, beyond allowing me to pretend I went out to one of the shows, it’s one of those off-season reminders from the Kobe producer that he’s capable of these sweaty dance-floor numbers alongside the frantic pop stuff he puts out through a major label. Listen above.
