I’m sensing a bit of a theme here from genre-hopper HARRISON. In the previous track we featured from him—the uber-fun “Down, B, Up, B“—the Toronto resident dug into his synthesizers and drum kits while making liberal use of samples of Kirby‘s fighting sounds from Super Smash Bros., a kick-ass fighting series on Nintendo consoles and handhelds. Well, he’s sticking with that theme on “Maybe Next Time,” another ridiculously upbeat cut that this time features Pikachu samples.
Yes, the lil’ yellow, electricity-wielding son of a bitch from Pokemon can be heard throughout “Maybe Next Time.” As much as I want to hate everything about this—Pikachu always gives me trouble in SSB, I don’t know why—this track is so damn addictive and sugary that I could never feel that way. Like I said, I’m just sour on Pikachu being such a dick.
