ANIMAL HACK is a Tokyo-based producer duo consisting of MASAtO and YUtA. Suddenly appearing in 2016 and quickly dominating music streaming platforms, they have built their name as producers and increased their fan base, both domestically and globally.
In addition to their iconic style of catchy and clean electronic-based dance music, their personal backgrounds and cultural influence the concepts of their songs, which are often influenced by life in an age of social media and the fluidity of consuming music through streaming. Their song “Franny” was selected by Apple as the theme song for their Shibuya branch renewal ad. Following this, “Pressure” was chosen as one of Apple Music Japan's prestigious “100 best songs in the world representing 2018”. On top of crafting original pop hits and chill beats, ANIMAL HACK also works alongside the trendiest up and coming artists such as SIRUP (their collaboration single “Days Gone By” was supported by starRo at the Twilight on the Pier festival in Santa Monica), and 4s4ki, gaining traction as one of Japan’s most quickly rising trackmakers, contributing innovative and refreshing concepts to the music industry. The producers themselves curate their own artwork and concepts as well, creating consistent high quality visual content and aesthetics.
