It's time to revisit the after-school arcade hall, because Dance Dance Revolution (DDR) might be making a comeback this festival season. 

Featured on the latest music video from Kantor, an artist new to the electronic scene, the game is reimagined into a custom MIDI Launchpad. Using four custom DDR pads, Kantor dances around to trigger sounds and create the song, "Concrete Jungle," as a 3D projector provides live visuals on the DJ's footsteps. 

The creative, technology-intensive music video is right up Kantor's ally, as he was the inaugural Dance Dance Revolution World Champion when he was 14. Now producing music, Kantor has transformed his rhythm-savvy roots into a sound mixing techno, bass and futuristic synths. "Concrete Jungle," released independently, is high energy and dynamic, acting as the perfect soundtrack for a music video that will make you sweat just watching it.
