Tokyo Machine's latest remix flips a song used in one of the most iconic anime series of all-time.

Released on Friday was the beloved electronic music producer's remix of "Silhouette" by Japanese rock band KANA-BOON. While the song and group are internationally renowned on their own accord, many fans of the wildly popular anime series Naruto: Shippuden may remember it as one of the show's many theme songs.

Swapping the guitars from the original, Tokyo Machine opts for high-energy synths, pounding drums, and twinkly keys akin to a bustling arcade. Combining the distinct vocals of KANA-BOON, the final result is a song that remains true to the fabric of the original while infusing electronic flair for listeners who gravitate towards dance music.
