I play good games, browse japanese artwork, and am a Japanese indie (doujin) electronic music enthusiast. I'm into some really cool content!
I'm sorry, I'd put down more here, but literally nobody ever reads this stuff. If you're curious about me, feel free to see any of the website I have linked! If you want to talk, just send me a message or comment on my profile!
I like a large variety of stuff, but I'd say my favorites lie in stuff that isn't afraid to show off a little cleavage, science fiction, and fantasy, especially shows that try to explore those genres in new and refreshing ways. I don't watch anime much anymore, but I still read a fair bit of manga and a few light novels. Most of my interests have mostly shifted to doujin music and artwork, especially original works; I'm pretty deep into it, I'm guessing there ain't to many of you on here like that, haha.
About friend requests: Please comment on my profile before sending me a friend request. I will recieve you 90% better if you communicate with me first.
I apologize ahead of time if I offended you, I tend to be pretty forward with my opinions and views, and blunt too. Rest assured I am a reasonable person and we can almost always work something out. HOWEVER, if you don't take what is said on the internet with a grain of salt, a fistful of skepticism, and a nose for irony, then that was your problem in the first place; leave and go skulk in a depressing, lonely corner of anxiety and hate. At the same time, you are equally in the wrong if you approach the internet without a desire for wholesome discussion whereas all parties are on equal ground at all times. There is a balance to these things!
My Favorite Doujin Artists and Musicians
Hey, you're welcome to read this, but its been spoilered due to high content.
---Top favorites--- Calla Soiled – Unique style across a wide variety of genres that shows a lot of personality, featuring heavy sci-fi feels and copious digital sampling. Probably my favorite musician in the world, as I’ve been collecting every bit of his music since the day I first heard him. aran – hardcore and house producer, probably my favorite in both departments. Takes an upbeat and progressive approach to these genres. Ras. – The best tech dance producer in the entire world IMO. It doesn’t get much better than this. DJ TECHNORCH – of all the hardcore producers out there he takes the most insane, psychedelic approach to the music. Prepare for brain melting. Also one of the founders of the Japanese hardcore scene; this guy has a LOT of history.
---Special Mention--- anubasu-anubasu – hardstyle and hardcore producer tied to Lilium records. I’m pretty sure he runs the label, actually. DJ Noriken – one of the classic hardcore producers of Japan. Unfortunately has sort of “mainstreamed” as of late and his style has suffered and his label, SKETCHUP! RECORDINGS, has long since been taken over by DJ Genki (which is a sad, sad thing). USAO / DJ Shandy Kubota – popular hardstyle and dubstep producer with a hardcore flair to his music. Has heavy ties to the hardcore scene. DJ DAI – light drum’n’bass producer, has a distinct jazz and blues inspired approach. Affiliated with Cyberaser Records (now defunct). Engage Blue – gabber, industrial, and other hard-sound producer. I think I’m one of the only persons who have bought his music, ahaha. ETIA. – hardcore producer affiliated with Lilium Records. Please do more Horizon on the Middle of Nowhere inspired tracks! Hapi=> / AOiRO_Manbow – hardcore producer, Nintendo arranger / remixer, and head of Salvation by Faith Records kefy – house and breakcore producer; his house is meditative and yet his breakcore is bouncing off the walls… Rarely produces. kors k / StripE / Eagle / Teranoid – one of the classic beatmania IIDX music producers, specializes in a wide variety of genres and is known for his professional sound design. Le Dos-on / Hyphen – one of the few Japanese freeform producers. His music is so emotional it brings even someone like me to tears… Lime – hardcore, trance, and progressive house producer. His hardcore style is upbeat and emotional without being happy hardcore. Next Tribe – the artist that introduced me to doujin music, the one that started it all for me. Even so, he is one of the oldest and most obscure doujin electronic producers. Noizenecio – industrial hardcore, gabber, and hardsound producer. His kicks are pretty awesome. REDALiCE – a long time ago, this guy was a symbol for the hardcore scene in Japan. He’s long since moved on to pop music and monetization (his music has largely sucked since 2012) but he has tons of classic tracks out there. REMO-CON – One of the founders of the genre “tech-dance.” Need I say more? Satella – trance and progressive house producer. Maintains a unique style in these genres even though they are already mostly flooded of uniqueness. Succubus Helna – doomcore and other dark-sound producer. Not exactly special but he is the guy who exposed me to the stuff so he holds a special place in my heart. t+pazolite – if you could fuse cartoons with hardcore, speedcore, and IDM then you’d get this guy. He’s barrels of fun, although in the past few years his style has taken a major turn for the worse after becoming so formulaic. Takahiro Eguchi – part doujin producer, part professional sound designer. Produced a significant portion of the NO GAME NO LIFE soundtrack. Thanatos – drum’n’bass and schranz producer who was tied to the hardcore and trance scenes some years ago; this combo was definitely unique. Doesn’t produce much anymore. 黒魔 / chroma – hardcore and chiptune producer, delves a variety of genres but gives everything a chiptune flair.
---Top favorites--- Asgr – science fiction, ripe with symbols and highly saturated and messy Gia – mecha girls, mecha aliens, mecha everything! Also give everything a giant gun or sword with fantastic detail. This guy is awesome! Mamuru – the oshiri and oppai guy, eros everywhere. Beyond having a very smooth, colorful, and textured kind of style, he puts all these fun messy sketches all over his finished pieces. Very saturated. LM7 – a speed painter, I love how he creates detail through the thickness and prevalence of the lines he uses in such dramatic ways.
Links My Steam. - This is where I am most active. You'll find most of the details you'd ever want to learn about me here on Steam. Feel free to send me a friend request, but please mention that you come from MAL!
My Youtube Channel. - I upload stuff for Trackmania 2, Strike Vector, and whatever I feel like, basically, really really rarely. Making videos is time consuming, but is a good way to show off some things that I do.
My SoundCloud. - I follow people, so you can get a good feel for my music tastes from my likes. I don't compose or remix music yet, but I plan to eventually, so keep your eyes peeled.
My twitter. I post things... well its my first venture into social media so I post about music, creations, video games, and art.
My blog. I post rants and stuff about my collections there. I mark it as NSFW because, well, its not for the faint of heart and because I don't want children reading my blog. Still, there may someday be NSFW stuff in there so just be aware, k? I rarely ever post, however. Its kind of a pain to maintain when I have no readership, haha.
