There are a few various things I wanted to post about, but none of them are really enough to stand on their own as an article, so I thought I’d round them up all in one post.
Yunosuke Facebook Page and Album
雄之助/Yunosuke now has a Facebook page! Please consider heading over and giving him a ‘like’ if you’re a fan. You may know Yunosuke from popular song ‘El Dorado’, featuring Miku. Yunosuke is known for electronic and club music – so if that’s your cup of tea, he’s well worth checking him out if you haven’t already. He’s also releasing his first CD worldwide soon! Details can be found on Jrharbort’s channel.
You can find his Facebook page here:https://www.facebook.com/yunosuke.composer

KZ’s ‘Hand in Hand’ PV
The song many Vocaloid fans have been waiting for, ‘Hand in Hand’, can now be viewed on the official Hatsune Miku channel! This song, produced by KZ, is the theme for Magical Mirai 2015. The PV, by hoshima, also features the Magical Mirai 2015 design (designed by Shikimi). Hoshima also illustrated the Magical Mirai promotional image, so that’s why you may recognise the art style. If you’re a fan of KZ (Livetune), this song is worth checking out!
You can check it out on the official Hatsune Miku channel here:
Circus-P’s ‘Circus Monster’ hits 1 million views
The song ‘Circus Monster’ by Western producer Circus-P has now hit over 1 million views on YouTube! It was actually originally uploaded in 2010, under his name matt9five, however due to many changes, it got re-uploaded to his Circus-P (VocaCircus) account in 2012. He posted an illustration thanking his fans, which I have also posted.

Coralmines uploads 4 hour Vocaloid mix
Producer Coralmines has uploaded a video which will prove to be popular with many people – a 4 hour mix filled with EDM Vocaloid music! The tracks come from various producers, all who are credited in the description, including spacelectro, Dog Tails, ATOLS, Rin Ginsuke, Soh Yoshioka, Aerial Flow, Giga, Kikuo, Nhato and Tranceformer Yuno. Those names alone should be enough to capture any Vocaloid fan’s attention! Some of Coral’s own music is also included in the mix. It’s honestly a great video from Coral, and the transitions work very well, so it’s worth a listen! You can listen to it on Coralmines’ channel below:
Vocallective Records vinyl up for sale
The first vinyl from Vocallective Records is available to purchase! They ship out around August I believe, and at time of writing, there are only 6 left. A total of 11 vinyls have been produced, and no more will be manufactured after that! If you’re a fan, I highly recommend picking this up quickly. They are selling for $40 (around £25/€36), plus shipping. The songs included were featured in either ‘Drum & Bass & Vocaloid’ 1 or 2, so you know it’s bound to be good! I managed to grab myself the first print of the vinyl (also signed by Azureflux) which should arrive very soon. I will take some photos and a recording of it in action, to show you guys! The tracklist is as follows:
AdyS – Unresolved
Azureflux – Serenity
AdyS, Cepheid – A Better Day
Jeric Rocamora – Fucked Up

Mystery surrounds Ruby
Upcoming PowerFX Vocaloid ‘Ruby’ seems to have hit rocky shores, after her design was revealed at Anime Expo – the main issue being that the design revealed doesn’t match the design that Syo had been working on with a few others. It’s a very complex situation, and without a full explanation from PFX and Syo, we may never know exactly what went down. As such, there’s a lot of mystery surrounding Ruby, including how well her release will go, whether her design will change, etc.

Ricardo Padua, producer of popular song ‘Beautiful Lies‘ featuring Miku, has announced his newest album! It will be released on July 17th, and features a stunning illustration by Ao Clover.
