【J-Music Remixes】 3 - Vocaloid Composers with Real Singers? {DECO*27}

Sometimes when checking out Vocaloid music, it's hard to imagine that the songs are made by master composers. Our loveable Hatsune Miku, Kagamine Rin/Len, Megurine Luka, and others work alongside skilled professionals that give them the ability to sing better than most "real" people.

But let's say you've thought that far ahead. You are a true otaku -- falling in love with the melodies and baselines of popular NND artists. At this point you must've realized, "Hey, these guys have some real talent! I wonder why they're off making independent works instead of, I don't know, being hired by the music, movie, and media industries!"

The man, himself, Hyadain!

Well your thoughts aren't as far-fetched as you'd believe. Well, as far-fetched. Check out Hyadain for instance -- at one minute he's making hilarious video game remixes and creating his own anthem for NND; and at the next he's producing one of One Piece's greatest openings, "Share the World" along with the opening music to the recent hit comedy "Nichijou"  [PV with Hyadain]! So of course there must be a happy median between being a professional and having fun.

In this segment of 【J-Music Remixes】, we'll be looking at a couple songs from DECO*27, who created hit Vocaloid songs as well as worked with other great singers!

DECO*27 has been featured in Vocaloid Track of the Whenever I Feel Like It for his song "Yowamushi Montblanc" but he has also made lots of great Vocaloid songs such as "Pedal Heart," "Ai Kotoba," and "Step to You"!

The first song, "Love-Lost Elegy", mixes the feel of a Vocaloid song (and many references) with the great vocals of Marina! For those of you who don't know, Marina is one of the singers for Girls Dead Monster, from the hit anime Angel Beats! Her voice has an edgier feel in this song, but after watching it you can probably tell that it's a very complex and fast-paced song.

Free cookies for whoever can catch the PV style from another famous DECO*27 Vocaloid song, and also the reference to another Miku song by DECO*27 in the lyrics!

The next video, and my personal favorite, is "Light Lag"! The singer, Topi, isn't as well known, but the video and the pacing of the song is so stunning that I can't help but love it! It also have a fresh summery feel so hopefully you will enjoy it as well.

[Also near the end I can hear a guy singing with her in the background... could he possibly be DECO*27? Catching on like Hyadain, I see? :)]

"And yet you said a single "It's beautiful," 
To the flowery light that dyed my face, and my heart pounded..."

I hope you enjoyed the videos and today's 【J-Music Remixes】! For a look at past posts:

Have a great summer all! Might see you at Otakon ;)

Welcome to
The Otaku Reviewers

This blog, "The Otaku Reviewers", was started in February of 2010 on this very same platform, Blogger. At first, it was a venture into the informational and informal world of comics, anime, video games, and Japanese culture. In other words, just a random blog.

Over time, the founder of the blog credited with the pseudonym "RPGhero" was joined by two fellow bloggers and friends with the names "Chansu" and "Deretsun". Together the three bloggers looked up interesting Japanese culture facts, recommended new anime, talked about their own "otaku" interests, and traveled across the United States to various anime conventions.

There have been off periods when the blog ceased production of content and there have been times when there would be dozens of blog posts per week. The schedule varies depending on the lives of the people behind the alias'. However the pattern is that we always get back into the game with even newer information about Japanese culture, anime, video games, and other nerdy hobbies.

The motto of our blog is:
"A cure for your apathy and an inspiration for your dreams. ...Applies to Otaku, anime fans, J-pop junkies, and the like"

The purpose is to blog about cool stuff related solely to anime and otaku stuff. There's no other reason we're doing this.

If you like our blog, please support us in however small a way that you would like. We appreciate our readers!
