bemani games have a megaton of artists making music for them now and with a lot of them being relative newcomers it's time to find out who the peoples' favorites are (all six people who still visit this board that is)

here's my top 5. I dunno how I'd order them since I like them all for different reasons, so I did a review instead:

wac
+ god-tier composition and arrangement, has the magical wac touch
+ Seriously his only bad songs are the ones he made with other people
+ He's got that whole reclusive enlightened musical savant aura going on

- Keeps collaborating with LED for some godforsaken reason
- Not actually a Leo, kinda fake dude :/
- Starting to feel like he lost interest but maybe he's just busy with the new piano game


DJ TOTTO
+ Can make any genre good
+ Genetic experiment created in a lab using the DNA of ZUN and every Kirby composer
+ Caused Yoshitaka to realize he had no reason to write music anymore

- Actually, he can't make denpa good
- All his songs sound the same


Nekomata Master
+ Can compose several excellent songs in a short timespan
+ All the samples and instruments he uses are just really satisfying to my ears
+ He almost single-handedly salvaged Godspeed

- A lot of his best songs aren't in IIDX
- probably got a concussion filming the video for INSOMNIA and now he doesn't remember Tribe exists
- DARK LEGACY-Long version-


USAO
+ Made Dynamite
+ Gives less of a fuck than everybody else except Hommarju
+ Reposts crossdressing Shimakaze smut on twitter, which is hilarious

- Some of his songs are just the same kick on loop for 5 consecutive minutes
- He reposts crossdressing Shimakaze smut on twitter


kors k
+ Long-runner with consistent high quality output
+ Diverse; can take a swing at most EDM genres with positive results
+ Was around 17 when he submitted Clione and look at him now. He is a modern success story

- Songs take time to warm up to even though they're usually good
- Don't let him include vocals
- No more teranoid?


Cametek is also really good. I used to like Remo-con a lot but he's been boring lately. Noriken owns but most of his BEMANI songs are a little boring. lapix will probably be in my top 5 if he becomes a full-on regular. lots of other artists like Tomosuke are great but just haven't been doing much lately :(

man I thought the shadow extended was pretty good, it's just not really the shadow. kors k mixes it up with his long versions sometimes, which can be good or bad (D...).

he can still make good songs but he's fallen off hard and his collabs are generally not very good (besides Hell or Hell, his boss song with technorch in copula, that one kicks ass)

wac's collabs with LED play to neither of their strengths, it's just weird

Yeah, newer songs. Denjin K is a great album.

I like kors k's newer stuff though. Sota also still puts out good songs (refractive index from SPADA is pretty hot).

Really I'm OK with all the LEDxwacs except tokimeki (fuck that) but I feel like both artists could be making better use of their talents. Baseball Prim and Diavolo are good though and Thor's is funny.

Not familiar with CS (heresy I know), but wanted to say I love wac's BGM for Resort Anthem. Wish it was a full song.
