Tokyo Rat is a producer, musician from Vancouver, Canada. His first album release gaining exclusive releases and attention with Apple Music's official "Sinister Sounds" playlist, EDM.com, The 80s Guy, Audiodrums, French music blog Novorama, and many more. Synthwave fans easily gravitated towards Tokyo Rat. The rat found over 5,000 unique listeners and over 20,000 streams across the album in its first month.
Actor/filmmaker Harrison Houde (born in the year of the rat, 1996) grew up playing piano, drums, and electronic synths. Falling in love with and creating a synthwave genre persona/album was a no-brainer. Garnering more synthesizers, and perfecting the Tokyo Rat sound all came together after a recent trip to Tokyo, Japan before the COVID19 pandemic hit.
Tokyo Rat is not an artist to sleep on, especially if you are interested in new retrowave, synthwave music genres.

Evoking a sense of nostalgia in the listener, it is a perfect synthwave / chillwave track. It is titled "archive" as if you just dug up a disk from your attic and this was the first thing you heard. It’s easy-listening synthwave to begin Tokyo Rat’s debut that follows a hero’s journey.
"Diskette" is the second synthwave / darksynth single from Tokyo Rat.
Inspired by lo-fi synthwave artist System Olympia, Diskette brings darker tones, a low grumbling bass line, and a bright stabby synthwave drop. "Diskette" features a darker tone for Tokyo Rat's upcoming album "Edge of Tokyo" which follows a hero's journey.
Edge of Tokyo is the feature track with music video for 'Edge of Tokyo' album.
It puts you in the shoes of our hero and right on the edge of an apocalyptic-neo-tokyo. Hope you're ready to hop on your cyberpunk bike and take action to save the city from destruction.
