Apologies again for a post with lame comments. Anyway, Senbonzakura is in full bloom as it rises to the top, but there are also a loooot of new songs this week from people you already know and love so be sure to check them out! Some of them includes a new brainwash song (not again D: ), some GUMI V3 initial songs and a lot of hard rock stuff.

This week has surprisingly a lot of returning popular songs as well as remnants of the past ranking, so only very few songs are here today. The good side of this is that we have new top songs this week, all of them are so worth checking out.

This week is Miku's birthday week, so you'll be expecting a lot of new Miku songs to honor her anniversary. You can find songs uploaded for her birthday under this tag.

Since it's Miku, the most popular Vocaloid, you might be expecting that this is a Miku-fied week. I am also surprised that it's not at all like that! Rin/Len has quite a few songs this week, both new and old from last ranking. Luka has some, too! And our top three this week aren't even Miku songs! Ok, I'll stop acting all suspenseful and get on with it ^^;.

doN / どん

mylist | piapro | community

It's been a while since I've featured a producer of this genre but I remember some people liking stuff like this so why not? :D

doN is a Vocaloid producer who started uploading his works in Nico Nico Douga sometime in 2009, although he only started gaining somewhat large popularity recently. Aside from doing Vocaloid works, he also does rearrangements of Touhou songs.

His primary genre is electronic rock, with influences of emo and screamo. He is categorized also under Vocaleamo and Vocaloud. When he started, his songs were more on pure electronic rock, sythesizer-based music with rich bass texture and stray piano melodies. As he developed his music, he began inserting stronger guitars, more echoing bass, very fast drums and less obvious synth. His style can be placed side by side with music by Yuyoyuppe and on a slightly less similar note, Caz. He often collabs with meola and AO for artwork in his songs.

doN uses Miku and Luka in her works. In his earlier works, he tuned Miku normal and solid, ringing against the electronic beats sharply. In his later works, though, he started making Miku sing in varying pitches, usually starting off low and echoing, then slowly rising into a spine-chilling high pitch at the choruses. His Luka is tuned high, too, but since her voice is softer, she doesn't have the sharp effect against the guitars like Miku does. Of course, in his recent works, doN has started making Miku do screamos.

He has one CD released during Vocaloid Paradise named Wishes to the Moon, Emotions of Yggdrasil. You can buy it in toranoana here. Aside from Vocaloid, he also sings or rather...screams covers of other producers' songs XD.

sample songs
My Last Moment (Miku)
Nijiiro no Majiwaru Bashou (Luka; Touhou Arrangement)
Cybirth (Miku)
Awkwardness (Miku)

sample covers
Leia (with maturu, original by Yuyoyuppe)
I am a super man. (Yuyoyuppe original)


nikki says
I am never really a fan of screamo or hard rock (my ears can be really sensitive I guess) but there are producers who manage to make me listen to them, like Caz and Leia. Recently, doN adds to the very small list of screamo/vocaloud producers I can listen to. I personally like his earlier works (which are comparatively tamer) like Cybirth, but I also enjoy Awkwardness (despite the screamo XD), especially the piano-esque intro evolving into a rough guitar-piano ensemble.
