Form your rhythm and find your playstyle, from tactical to musical, then challenge your skill with friends and world leaderboards.

Featuring EDM artists from Kannibalen Records, including Apashe, HVDES, and Black Tiger Sex Machine; with more to come..

Infiltrate a fever dream of hand-crafted scenes, from bank heists to android uprisings, each uniquely designed to music.
