Japan has long been a hotbed of musical experimentation, with everything for J-pop metal to folk music to bizarre rap available to anyone willing to look. Some experiments have worked out better than others, but one of our favorite success stories is the appropriately named Genki Sudo and his music/dance group World Order…
This time, Genki and the gang are back in Tokyo–Akihabara, to be precise–and they’re not alone, thanks to a special guest appearance by AKB48!
Genki, a one time professional fighter and wrestling coach, is a wicked dancer with an excellent sense of humor. His music, which could probably be best described as techno pop, mixes solid electronica with auto-tuned, saccharine vocals and provides the perfect backing for his unique brand of robotic dancing and walking. And we’re here today to share his newest video, “Have a Nice Day.”
Released last week, the new video already has well over 270,000 views and sees the group exploring the wonders of Akihabara, Tokyo’s geekiest part of town.
For those unfamiliar with World Order, they are a Japanese “band” created in 2009 by former mixed martial artist, Genki Sudo, that incorporate music, slow-motion movement and dance into their visually stunning videos.
They are finally back in 2013 with an all new track and music video entitled “Welcome To Tokyo.”
