Song Production Information

MACHO ROBOT feat. nouvo nude

This is Bajune Tobeta, a.k.a. MACHO ROBOT.
Though I bet you rather hear me say "This is nouvo nude. It's been a while!", wouldn't you? Ha ha.

This time I've included a song called "Electric Super Highway", which is an electro arranged revival of "Super Highway" by nouvo nude from beatmania 3rdMIX.

MACHO ROBOT was conceptualized while composing the music, based on the world of American comics, and the song was finished with a sound approach that fits that world.

I believe this year has a strong theme of "reconstruction" and "reawakening", and in the original story of MACHO ROBOT, the main protagonist dies and is then resurrected.

As such the song "Super Highway" is resurrected, as well.

In the future, the songs of nouvo nude's past will be revived, and his legacy and work will resume as MACHO ROBOT.

Video Production Information

The is the official music video of Electric Super Highway, from the first track on the album "SPACE DRIVE".
The theme is "Shocking Surprise Come-back"!
Those who remember super highway from way back are going to have their brains buzzing(?) once the video's over.

Peace from the great New York City.
Go! Fight! Metal Suited MACHO ROBOT!
