We have sadly lost another producer very dear to us. Samfree, one of the most popular and longest-running Vocaloid producers, passed away on the 24th September, at the young age of 31. Known for his ‘Night’ series and catchy Eurobeat songs (starting from all the way back in 2007) he wil be incredibly missed, and we at VocaEuro hope his friends and family are alright during this hard time.
The news was tweeted on his Twitter account earlier today, which has come as a shock to many Vocaloid fans.
For me, Samfree was one of those very first few Vocaloid producers whose name I learnt, and whose music I still love to this day. I remember stumbling across his songs very early on into my venture into the world of Vocaloid, and when Project DIVA Extend was released, how Luka Luka★Night Fever was one of my favourite tracks to play in the game.
This news is incredibly saddening, especially seeing how Samfree was still so young. However his legacy of eurobeat music will live on in the hearts of his fans, I’m sure. It’s worth listening to his last song ‘Mind Voice‘ featuring IA, uploaded in August.
Good★Night, Samfree, and thank you for all your hard work.
