Avidd Music Friday Presents: Saitei!

Yo! We have returned with another installment of our music artist segment known as Avidd Music Friday! In case you’re wondering what this segment is about; this is where we highlight up-and-coming artists, DJs, and producers from around the world, as well as promote their music on our blog. If your interested in being a part of this segment and you want us to highlight your music, head to our Contact Us page and be sure to give us links to your music (via Spotify, Youtube, Apple Music, etc.) This time around we’ve got an awesome artist based our of South London! For our Avidd Music Friday segment our selection is Saitei!

Saitei

Saitei (who is currently based on South London) broke into the music scene post-quarantine. He’s known for his quirky demeanor, dark and witty comical lyrical style when it comes to his music. His style combines UK Hip-Hop with Heavy Metal as he’s creating a new genre called “Drill Metal”. Although compared to other artists like the late XXXTentacion, Scarlxrd, and Childish Gambino, Saitei is bringing something different, unorthodox, and strangely pleasant to the music scene.

Here’s a little snippet of his London Ghoul press release:

Originating as a 30 second rap posted to Tik-Tok, the single now named London Ghoul quickly rose in popularity, gaining over 250k views and received many requests from fans for a full version. The track was conceived by popular demand, by UK Drill style rapper, Saitei who explains that he realized the lyrics related to him and the changes he’s endured that helped him grow stronger as life evolves.

Saitei, the 23-year-old rapper and law student from London is making a big name for himself in Western and Japanese niche markets globally. With over 280k followers on tik-tok and tens of thousands of fans on Instagram and YouTube, he’s quickly securing worldwide recognition for his popular videos, and music which he writes,
produces, and sings himself.

One thing that sets the UK based London Ghoul Producer apart, is Saitei’s ability to bring Hip-Hop and Drill-Rap to the Japanese music scene and combining them effortlessly, incorporating dark and energetic styles to his music. With popular single hits like,”Tokyo Lockdown” and “Whoopty” released earlier this year, Saitei mentions that London Ghoul might be his last solo drill track in a while, as he sets out to discover himself and explore different genres, giving us an insight on many different vibes and new, fresh sounds to come from the young rapper.

You can find Saitei on Spotify, Instagram, and other social media!

Well guys, that will do it for this segment! As we mentioned before, if you want us to highlight you as an artist, DJ, or a producer, hit us up on our Contact Us page. Until next post, stay nerdy! 😉

Avidd Music Fridays: Dariasirene – Angel in Tokyo (feat. Nyokee)

Sorry this one took so long, but D&A Anime Blog would like to welcome you to a special segment where we highlight independent music artists, DJ’s and producers called Avidd Music Fridays! To kick off this new segment we bring to you an awesome artist that reached out to us a couple months ago on the blog. Her name is Dariasirene, and we’ve had the chance to check out her latest single featuring another artist known as Nyokee. It’s a fun little song that has a future type of techno vibe with chiptune sounds that kind of remind me of an ending from a futuristic anime. The title of the track is called “Angel in Tokyo”, and it’s available on all music streaming platforms! Check it out! 😉

D&A Anime Blog: Welcome To The Lounge!

In the past couple days an old thought seemingly found its way back into our heads; what about creating a page where our fans can listen to some of their favorite tunes while surfing through blog? Then it hit us! Since we have some music already on Spotify, why not link it up with the blog? Thus, our newest music page The Lounge was born! So if you’re a fan of music and have any particular genres you’d like for us to add to our new page, be sure to let us know in the comments below, or even on our Contact Us page. As always, stay nerdy, and stay healthy! 😉

D&A Anime Blog: Anime REvisited & Meteor Herd Remix!

March is finally here, so that means the warm temps that we’ve been waiting several weeks for, are surely on the horizon – if they haven’t already arrived. With two-and-a-half weeks remaining until our next convention outing, we’ve been think about having another segment where we do full episodic reviews on anime titles that are well-known, and lesser-known called Anime REvisited. We don’t have an exact date of when we’ll be doing this segment, but if you guys have any suggestions on what titles you want us to revisit, just let us know in the comment section below, or hit us up on our discord channel. Also, with the upcoming release of Avidd Minddset’s Minddgames EP, we have a special remix of Sonic Adventure 2’s Meteor Herd level produced by Avidd Minddset. Be sure to like and subscribe to our youtube channel if you like the track, and Minddgames will be released on all major (and minor) music streaming services on March 13th. That’s all we have for now, but until next post, stay nerdy my friends! 😉

Quick Updates: Music & (Possible) Podcast News!

A while back we were beating around the idea of putting together a podcast, and so far that idea is still on the table. As for our music segment, we’re implementing that feature on our sidebar in order to give our blog/website a more integrated feel. While we don’t have any main content to talk about on our (future) podcast just yet, we can say it will contain a few elements from some of the reviews that we’ve done on our Instagram page. Also with our music segment we hope to add some DJ mixes that fans can listen to along with some original works in the near future. That’s all we’ve got for updates, but there’s more posts and more excitement on the way! 🙂

D&A Anime Blog: Updates, Cancellations, and What’s on the Horizon!

Hey guys n’ gals! We’re hoping that you all had a great 4th of July last night, and didn’t do anything too dangerous. So here we are halfway through 2018 (as hard as that is to believe), and it’s only a matter of time before our three-year anniversary comes up in January. We don’t know what we’re going to do yet for that celebration, but what we do have is a few updates on what’s going to be happening for the remainder of the year. Some of it’s good news, and some of its bad news, but at the end of the day, we want our fans to know how much we love them for all of the support that they’ve been giving us.

During the creative process of what we wanted D&A Anime Blog to be, we wanted to have a few things that made us stood out from all the rest. One of the founding members of D&A, Donte’ Jamal Lewis, has been producing music between 2008-2014 through a DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) known as MAGIX; great for Hip-Hop or Electronic Music Producers. He took a hiatus in Spring 2014 to take Music Production classes in college, now he’s prepared to take his newfound knowledge of Mixing, Mastering, Compression and Limiting, and use it to create new music.

With that being said, we’ll finally be able to purchase a DJ controller (the Pioneer DDJ-1000) for Lewis, as he takes on the name Spindraulics in celebration of unlocking this achievement! A new page containing both original music and DJ mixes from Spindraulics (Lewis) will be making its way to the blog January 2019!

Now for a little bit of bad news; we won’t be able to attend Anime Festival Orlando this year, so to our fans who live in Orlando, Florida who follow us on social media, we apologize that we won’t be able to make it this time. This however doesn’t mean that we won’t go to AFO in the future. As for our fan fiction menu (if you haven’t already heard the news), we’ll be removing the current title Sonic Beatdown: Danganronpa Silver, and replace it with Sonic Beatdown: Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt. We’ll keep you updated on when it will be making its way to the blog, and what the story will be about.

Next year we may be temporarily pulling back a bit on convention appearances (only going to about 2-3/year) in order to find new ways to market and advertise what we do (i.e. Reddit, Instagram, and more). This doesn’t mean that we love our fans any less, its just with the rising costs of reliable transportation these days, it’s kinda hard to manage appearances on an out-of-pocket budget. In spite of this we’ll be working on getting sponsorships and figuring out ways to sell our brand merchandise, and (possibly) open up a kickstarter page.

And that ladies and gentlemen, is our updates for today! More filler posts coming soon!
