Video game fans might recognize the name Hadouken from the classic Street Fighter series. That Hadouken was a devastating fireball special move -- this Hadouken is an English grime band with hip-hop and dancehall influences.
The group came together in fall of 2006 and started to get a lot of attention after the release of their music video for That Boy That Girl in early 2007. They just debuted their first full-length album Music For An Accelerated Culture last month.
They incorporate techno into their sound and samples from Nintendo Game Boy sounds. Hadouken!'s songs deal with subjects such as binge drinking, youth culture, the commercial appropriation of underground music, relationships and debt. -Wikipedia
Lots of energy and grimey fun in their new video for Crank It Up:
