A little earlier than usual, because I have an avalanche of paperwork due :). This is one of my favorite producers, so I was excited to spotlight him/her.EBOTmylist
Ebot (pronounced Ebo) is one of the producers I really like even though I do not know anything about them. Ebot only has his piapro and mylist published in his blurbs. I do not know if he has a blog or a twitter or any website he's active in. Nevertheless, Ebot's works are close to my heart, so I think he deserves a spotlight here.
He/she specializes in tuning KAITO, I've never seen him/her use any other Vocaloid. One striking feature of Ebot's songs is that KAITO does not sound overdone. We all know KAITO tends to sound too nasal or unintelligible in some songs, but in Ebot's songs, he often sounds perfectly fine -- not human-like like Miku Append, Luka or GUMI, but above the usual KAITO standards, in my opinion. He also has the skill to make KAITO sing so terribly low without sounding bad.
Ebot's music borders between jazzy pop and ballads, aside from one song. What I like about his songs is how they sound so usual and simple, but in truth, he uses a myriad of sounds to form the melody. Take for example Mermaid
, which jazzy tunes are formed by sax-like, piano-like and guitar-like sounds but the melody is so simple to follow. Then there's oracion
, which has a quiet music-box melody but on a closer listen, you can hear chime-like sounds, piano, organ and drums. Of course, if we're talking about a beautiful myriad of sounds, we can't forget to talk about Ebot's Tsukiyukihana
, which is one of the best KAITO songs out there in my opinion. The intro is enough to make anyone awed: the orchestra-like music, KAITO's wonderful tuning, as well as the heart-stopping violin solo. Ebot makes wonderful music with maximized use of instrument sounds coupled with skillful KAITO tuning.
It also pays to notice that his videos have amazing MVs. I find his MVs adorable, too :D.Song List

Um, the post above was totally biased so I've used up all that I am to say here. Anyway, I do not have a favorite song from Ebot, basically because I love everything (like with Rerulili's works). They're just so diverse, you can't choose something you like best.
