Splatoon 2’s list of songs and bands just keeps growing with every update, and joining that lineup is the first post-Squid-Octo era artist. Called SashiMori (at least in Japan), this three piece band recruited a genius Octoling DJ to help define their sound. This ten year-old wunderkind is taking them to new heights, with hot samples and cuts to run over the band’s own sound. If you caught the Version 4.0 trailer, you already heard one of their songs, too:

 

 
It’s a great look into their style, with distorted vocals playing off each other and plenty of turntable action complementing the entire song.

 

 
Veering into even more experimental territory, this next one’s the DJ’s show with plenty of meshed together samples leading into a full crowd chant by the end. Together, they add to the in-game variety while carrying what can only be called “the Splatoon sound” — instantly recognizable, and certified fresh.

When he isn’t writing for Nintendo Wire, Ricky’s anticipating the next Kirby, Fire Emblem, or if the stars ever align, Mother 3 to be released. Till then he’ll have the warm comfort of Super Smash Bros. to keep him going.
