First music release from the soundtrack to Supersonic Cities: Adventure 1 – Tokyotronica, a musical story written by Guy Perryman.

People ask “Where are you from?” but the Supersonic Cities Crew believe “It’s not where you’re from – it’s where you’re at”!

Where You’re At (Tokyo) celebrates the city with sounds of Tokyo in the mix – taiko drums, shinkansen bullet trains and a vocal inspired by the voice of the “yakiimo” baked potato vans. In the live show the music will be performed as a taiko drumming DJ jam.

This track launches the music genre Edotronica – mixing traditional Japanese instruments with electronica. Edo being the original name of Tokyo.
