See also: my archived Vocaloid music page from 2020

I've been a fan of Vocaloid/vocalsynth music since 2010-2011 or so, and it's still something I listen to all the time to date. This page is dedicated to my favourite songs and producers.

LiterallyHifumi has done a much better overview of the current landscape than I could ever care to in this year of the lord, so please feel free to check out their page.


I could probably go on forever, so I decided to make a Dreamwidth journal for this purpose that I'll update sporadically.


ちゃぁ (Chaa)

Fear Garden

My all-time favourite Vocaloid producer, who was active from 2008-2013 or so. Most well-known for the classic Fear Garden, they mostly used Hatsune Miku, Kagamine Rin, and Megurine Luka.

Mostly experimental electronic music with a lot of strange sounds and sharp noises that hurt my ears (see pain killer below). I saw a comment by Koinuko on Neocities regarding Fear Garden stating "[...] it's not as much of an easy listen as it used to be, since the instrumental (and Rin herself, honestly) are a little grating" and I really do think that's the best way to describe the majority of Chaa's music in general.

Favourite songs: Fear Garden, pain killer, acutecare

ユギカ (yugica)


My current favourite modern Vocaloid producer, active from 2021 to present. They mostly use MEIKA Hime and Mikoto.

I spent a long time without anything that really ever filled the void left by Chaa's music, but I randomly heard Gasou thanks to YT autoplay one day and was immediately drawn in, because this was the sound I had wanted to find for so long. Yugica's music isn't nearly as intense or grating, but the husky vocals and harsh instrumentals are pretty damn close.

Favourite songs: paralysis, diFrail, distressed, Caprice Cast


Dr. Copy

Semi-active producer who hasn't done a ton of songs, but each one is a banger nonetheless. He user Flower and self-covers a lot.

Favourite songs: nisemononingen40gou, Strange, Lucifer

cosMo@暴走P (cosMo@Bousou-P)

Sadistic.Music∞Factory (Remake The second phase)

Active producer who's been around since 2007. He's known for extremely fast, high energy songs that usually use Hatsune Miku.

cosMo is one of those eternal producers who's been around forever, though I didn't really start actively listening to his music until Strange Document 2020. He's done a bazillion classics like The Disappearance of Hatsune Miku and Intense Voice.

Favourite songs: Noisy Crazy Girl, Machine Gun Poem Doll, YAMINABE!!!!
