This week’s featured producer likely doesn’t need an introduction to many seasoned fans. After producing a few smash-hit and viral songs, his name is now known by many. From one of the most popular Miku trance songs of all time, to the viral smash hit of 2012, this producer is definitely top-tier. This article will feature the history and works of t.Komine, aka Utata-P.

I’ve timed this in accordance with Utata-P’s guest announcement for Anime Expo 2013, which is 2 weeks away from this day. He will be speaking at a panel along with several other highly notable producers, and I’m sure many will be excited to see him there. So let’s get this under way already! Continue reading »

The Vocaloid community is full of all kinds of artistic talent, as demonstrated by the countless number of music writers, composers and illustrators. But then we have the group of producers who take on the task of combining all of these works, and bringing them to life in a way that’s hard to visualize with a song and illustration alone. These people are the animation producers, and they have what is arguably the hardest task when it comes to content creation in the community.

This Producer of the Week article will focus on BrotherP and his creations. While there are other high profile animation producers like Director Wakamura that excel at the creation of eye popping visuals, BrotherP has an equally impressive talent for creating immersive and emotionally touching stories with his animations.

This edition of the Producer of the Week review will feature a producer that focuses his music style on electronica. More specifically, the trance genre of music. Due to the constantly shifting attention and interests of the music market, and the huge popularity of Rock and Pop, the electronic side is often overlooked despite having some amazing sounding music. Aura Qualic continues to challenge this shift with his own unique styles. Continue reading »

Welcome to the cute side of the Vocaloid fandom.

This week’s Producer of the Week is focused around one of my personal favorites, in light of recent events. His music is so well known, you’ve very likely heard one of his songs, even if you don’t know his name.

Daniwell is a producer who centers his style around what could best be described as “adorably cute”. While the instrumental style from track to track may change somewhat, the one thing that remains almost the same is his vocal tuning style. The way Daniwell uses Miku’s voice is very unique. He has Miku tuned far higher than most producers, but the way he does it makes it sound less strained or forced, and more natural. The result is being able to hear a random song and say “Yep, that’s Daniwell”.

Daniwell’s first notable musical success with Vocaloid can be traced back to the song “Hatsune Miku Remembers 10,000 digits of Pi“. His ability to make Miku sing nothing but numbers while still remaining entertaining was certainly interesting. Then there’s various other fun tracks such as Kotobatoraborato, Error Propagation Plus and Chaotic Universe (which used 60 different producers!).

However, Daniwell’s biggest and most notable creation is the song “Nyanyanyanyanyanyanya!“. Released in July 2010, This seemingly simplistic song sparked a meme that caused an explosion of content on nicovideo and youtube alike. Various remakes, PVs and parodies were produced. The most popular fan creation based on this song is one I’m sure everyone knows: Nyan Cat.

Nyan Cat, released 10 months after the original song release, used a remake of the song that used the UTAU named “Momo Momone” for the vocals. The massive popularity and attention of the video helped fuel Miku’s and Daniwell’s own popularity. Upon hitting the 50 million view mark, it inspired Daniwell to release his own album titled “Nyan Cat” back in February 2012.

Daniwell’s music is something that always puts a smile on my face and keeps me coming back for more. You will also notice that a lot of his music centers around the theme of cats. His reason for this? He simply says “I love cats”. If you enjoy this producer’s work, sharing this article is greatly appreciated.

And with that, please enjoy the official PV by Daniwell for his song “Cute Cute Cat”.

This week’s channel promotion goes back to one of the very first Vocaloid producers to appear on the scene, becoming popular within the first month of Hatsune Miku’s release. OSTER Project is definitely an important producer in the Vocaloid community.

OSTER Project’s first success can be dated all the way back to September 13th, just two weeks after the debut of Miku’s software. The song, titled “Koisuru VOC@LOID“, was one of the first major hits on nicovideo that helped lead to the explosion of Miku’s online popularity. She was extremely surprised, yet pleased with the success of the song, as she talked about in a rather cute online interview.

Just a few months later, she released yet another instant classic titled “Miracle Paint“. This cute and catchy song with a “stage show” type musical style was extremely popular and well received. It has been featured as a playable track in Project Diva, and received a few very impressive MikuMikuDance remakes.

The last notable track I would like to mention is Trick and Treat, featuring Kagamine Rin and Len. Released on the Halloween of 2008, this eerily addictive song is easily among one of the most popular pieces using the twins. It has even been featured as a live piece in the recent Hong Kong and Taiwan concerts.

Quite a lot of time has passed since then, and OSTER Project has accomplished many other feats in the community. Far more than I could mention in a single article. OSTER didn’t start using YouTube until just a few months ago, and her audience is rather low to her channel being relatively unknown. As always, if you enjoy this producer’s work and would like to help her audience grow, please share this article to spread the news of the producer’s official channel.

Below is the latest video from her channel featuring the song “Summer Idol”, which has also been used as a playable song in Project Diva ƒ. Enjoy!
