I first came in touch with Vocaloid about three years ago, when listening to the song "World Is Mine" by the great Ryo/supercell. Later listening to more and more songs, until I discovered 40mP. His style really inspired me to create my first Vocaloid song, called "Answer to My Feelings". After that, I started analyzing more and more Vocaloid songs to find out what made them so special. The results of my research will be spread out across my new upcoming album "500001", which will be released in December 2016.
I'm a 16 year old student from the Netherlands. I first started making music when I was 5 years old, playing the piano and taking lessons. I never really bothered in the beginning, but in high school I discovered pop music and later Vocaloid. In the first place, the thing that kept me playing were awesome piano covers of anime songs by, to name a few, Animenz and Theister. I'm still studying on their pieces today, but have shifted my focus more to Vocaloid music and creating my own songs.
After the piano came the guitar. My dad had one and soon I was playing it day after day, teaching myself chords and rhythms. Most of the guitar work in my songs is done by myself, while I'm planning on recuiting a well-teached guitarist for the parts I can't figure how to play myself. Next came the bass guitar, which I still play till this day. I own a pretty beautiful Fender Squier P-Bass, fretless and with a deep purple color. What made this bass so special for me is that it's actually my first bass guitar to own and it's fretless. I don't use this one on records though, because I don't like its sound in the overall mix. I do, however, play it on stage.
Overall, I'm more of a DAW guy, I don't really use "offline" instruments for recording, due to not having too much space in my "studio".
As some of you might have seen, my YouTube page says that my goal is to "make Miku sing her most beautiful song ever". In the meantime, my personal goal has become to achieve international success and bring Miku to big stages in Europe. It's my dream to play the piano on stage, next to Miku or any other Vocaloid, in front of thousands of people. I hope you guys will make it possible to achieve this dream.

Great news! After months of work, today we release our new single Good Girl's Wish! For more info about the song, please click the "Details" button below.
The story behind the song
It all started some months ago. Our producer LayetriP was thinking about how to make the world a better place and came up with an idea: "Why not use everything in my power to reach my ideals?" Easier said then done, but Layetri insisted to make his dream come true. He started writing a song and thinking about how he could use this to change the world. The idea is simple: We decided to donate every single cent that we receive from this album to a good cause fighting for children's rights in places of war: War Child Nederland (a Dutch organisation).
The lyrics are meant to be interpreted this way: There's a girl with a wish, somewhere. She's scared for the future but also keeps hope for tomorrow. This girl could be anyone. Could be you, could be me. Everyone has wishes and everyone has the right to make their wishes come true. People in war zones wish for peace, and so do their children. That's why we want to help.
And you can help us! All you have to do is share the song with your friends and family. Let everyone you know listen to the song. Buy it! Share it!
