灼熱Summer Night 4
June 30 @ 7:00 pm - July 1 @ 2:00 am
System Arcadia is back once again with our 4th and biggest installment yet of 灼熱Summer Night!!! After a successful event last year, Machine has graciously opened their doors for us to take main stage for Saturday, June 30th for New England’s greatest Japanese EDM event to date. Throughout the next few months, performers from abroad (Yes, that is a plural) will be announced along with ticket sales launching early next month. We will also have an even larger VIP package available this year to those that wish to get the full 灼熱Summer Night experience! Stay tuned for more details and save the date!
Let’s start off this page the right way with an initial announcement for the first of FOUR headliners for this historic event!
Akira Complex has had a meteoric rise to prominence in the J-core scene. His first releases on Kors K’s S2TB label include numerous remixes (As One, Are You Ready, On The Beat, Icarus), some of his signature songs (Rift.exe, Oddysey), and his first full album, The Synthesis Collective.
He followed that up with a remix on a major label album (Because of You (Akira Complex Remix)), a collaboration track with Noizenecio (Deviant Mechanics) featured in Hardcore Syndrome X, and two incredible collaboration albums with Hommarju (We Are Connected) and Camellia (Reality Distortion).
Over the past year, along with new tracks for Bizarre Nation (Consequence of Nature) and Bass Avengers 2 (Stinger Missile), his music has been featured in many rhythm games, including Zyon (Vector Cannon), Arcaea (Relentless), and Beatmania IIDX 25 (Break Stasis).
He’s played numerous shows, both in Japan (the S2TB Gathering and S2TBTANO*C series) and stateside (PARTY2012 IRL, Anime Expo).
When he steps up, you know something magical is gonna happen. His sound, though it’s changed over the years, has always had something unique about it; you can hear the emotion and passion in every track he makes.
