This Guy Made Minimal Techno Music Using Only Fidget Toys, And We're Kind Of Here For It

Good luck getting this beat out of your head.

It was only a matter of time until the fidget toy craze resulted in people finding other uses for the things taking the internet by storm. One Toronto-based music producer, Andrew Huang, used only two fidget cubes and two fidget spinners to create music he dubbed minimal techno and, surprisingly, it's super impressive and kind of addicting to listen to.

The YouTuber said using fidget toys is one of his "most requested videos of all time" and that, after ordering the items specifically for the sole purpose of making the video, he has succumbed to what he thought was an odd trend. "Everything I do from now on I'll have to only use one hand," Huang joked, showing himself tackling tasks like cooking, showering, and playing guitar one-handed.

Even though Huang notes that the fidget toys are small and, therefore, the sound they emit is also small, the beat he crafts is quite complex. Using the fidget cube for more clicky noises and the fidget spinner for whooshy noises, he layers them in interesting ways. Then, using the fidget spinner, he creates a baseline that he tinkers with in music software and adds to the mix.

We don't know about you, but this song is already on repeat in our heads. Who knew that fidget toys — with the spinner having been invented in the '90s and the cube being created just last year, both of which apparently have positive side effects for those who play with them — were capable of having a musical purpose, too?
