Rhythm Droid is Tokyo-based Devon Hughes who makes awesome melodic funky electro/techno music. That seems quite logical since he states his musical influences includes Japanese pop to 70's fusion, Detroit techno and French electro, elements all of which you'll hear in his music. He's also touring the Tokyo nightlife with a live-show with just synths, sequencers and other hardware but with no laptop.
Take a look at this brilliant live techno jam:
Mr Hughes has been snapped up by Eye Industries who's given you the likes of The Twelves, Alan Braxe, Cassette Club and Russ Chimes. Expect to hear more from him!
